Old GE refrig is sweating /dripping inside

One of my rental houses has a old GE refrig in it, model #TBX165IYCLWH and serial # MR769776. My renter says the inside is sweating, almost dripping water. What could be the problem. How do I fix it?

If you run a 5 inch or so piece of aluminum wire from the defrost heater into the drain hole after you defrost the freezer that should fix the problem for good!

If the door gaskets are bad the air will seep in and the condensation will accumulate on the walls. Check that first.

Cleaning the water dispenser from old mold and is all black inside where the tube for the water comes out and all up above inside

Very common issue with all dispenser models. Can be caused by many things, depending on the make and model. Basic issues are due to warm ambiant air mixing with cooled air at the dispenser flap area...Failure of the low wattage heater that controls the Dew Point temperature (prevents sweating). This sweating can cause the mechnical and electrical parts to rust and or fail. Without a model #, can't advise on some can be difficult.

GE REFRIG. MODEL#TFX30PRYAA. side by side both

It sounds like your defrost control timer is working, but your defrost heater is most likely burnt out. It is a part number WR51X443
and is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. Turning the refrig off for 24 hours helped melt some of the accumulated frost, but not all. You will have to take that back cover off inside the freezer and melt all the frost with a hair blower, replace the defrost heater and reassemble.

You can replace the doors but you will think you bought a new frig when you see what they cost. Most come as an assembly and are very expensive.

Serial number

there are a few places to look for most frigidaire side by sides the model and serial number are on a tag either on the right hand inside wall of the refrig section or on the ceiling in the refrig section. on some older models though the tag may be behind the crisper drawers at the bottom. hope that helps. peyton
