GE zir36n rh Monogram 36" built in refrigerator

There is a constant problem with excess moisture in the unit, build up of mold on condiment containers and all surfaces of the interior, as well as rusting of metal parts. recently dismantled the entire interior, steam cleaning all surfaces as soon as it was up and running water started accumulating in the bottom of the case!  Now what do I do?

    thanks for the suggestion, but since this unit is built-in pulling out the fridge is not so simple. Can a not so handy homeowner accomplish this? or do I need to call in a repairman?

    I have mold all the time in my frig (cost $4,000 for the frig so I was not expecting this problem.) This is for a GE Monogram 36" refirigerator. The freezer is a separate unit that is 36" Does any one have a solution?

I finally got my refrigerator fixed after three years of complaining. The units are set up to have the fan running even if the cooling unit is not currently on. So when the unit is not cooling, then the fan is brining in moisture from the outside air which causes the water/mold. GE repair rewired the fan to run only when the unit cools on 4/20/10 and it has fixed my problem!!! Of course, this was only after I have thrown out a LOT of food!

Black mold growing inside of the fridge

Scrub scrub scrub with a mild bleach solution, and then keep a couple of open boxed of Baking Soda inside, changing them frequently.

Inspect your door seals, I bet you will find a rip, tear or some other leak which is allowing warm, moist air into the fridge and encouraging the mold growth.

Also consider setting the temperature much colder to inhibit the mold growth.

Although there are many mold-killing solutions on the shelf at the hardware store, a good old fashioned mild Bleach solution is your best bet, as it is acceptable for use around food.

Any solutions for constant black mold growing in GE Monogram refrigerator? It is not a lack of cleaning problem. Never had a refrigerator do this before.

Permanently removing mold from a refrigerator is tricky because mold likes cold dark places (like refridgerators). However, I would try a stonger cleaning solution such as bleach. The attached link explains how to get rid of mold:

Water is pooling in the bottom of the refrigerator. this model does NOT have an automatic ice maker, nor is connected to any water source. model #frt18g4awo

This is usually caused by the drain tube being plugged. There is usually a collector tray mounted under the refrigerator near the compressor and a small drain tube that runs into the refrigerator. The tube will plug with slime and green mold over time. Without knowing the model or make I cannot tell you for sure where the tray is located. If you find the tray you should see a tube laying into or hanging above the tray and running up to the refrigerator. Clean this tube and the little drain hole in the refrigerator with a pipe cleaner or soft piece of wire. Also check your door seals as a bad seal will also cause excess moisture to form in refrigerator, and children constantly opening and closing will also cause excess moisture to form and if the drain is plugged it will build up in the bottom.

GE Monogram Built-in refrig has blocked evaporator drain.

You should be able to see the drain under the coil. Part 804 on this diagram. Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing.

Door on Monogram ZIR36N won't pull closed and stay shut

The spring is actually a door closure , are the wheels that the bar closure mechanism goes through and attaches to the spring moving freely? It is entirely possible that a bin in the fridge is keeping the door open.

Sounds like the icemaker mold is leaking so the whole icemaker should be replaced.  Leaking water will get on the icemaker heater and cause condensation which then freezes and makes frost.
