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?

    It's dripping at the top, middle back of the refrig. and then the water freezes after it drips down. Forgot to add that on the first question.

    The gaskets are good. The water is coming from the top middle back of the refrig. next to a little plastic part in there.

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.

    Its hard to tell by your description, but when the freezer defrosts the water drains down into a hose that ends up to the drain pan underneath the fridge.Under the plastic part in the frige is where it usually starts. Try uncloging the drain tube with something or by blowing air into the hose. If its frozen with water you may have to thaw it out first.

Renting and Paying the Gas Bill


This past week I changed out an old hot air furnace in a rental unit that made me question why the tenant did not go to the owner and offer to pay more rent in exchange for getting the furnace changed out sooner. If you are a renter that is paying the gas bill, then you need to think about this.
The hot air furnace was at least 60 years old. It had been coal fired furnace that was converted to gas many decades ago. The pilot light of this beast was more of a torch than a pilot light. When the thermostat called for heat the flame roared for 15 minutes before the exterior blower unit that was added when the furnace was converted to gas, started up to move air through the furnace and into the house.

As I was starting up the new unit, which took up less than 1/3 of the space of the old beast, the renter came and sat down on the basement steps looking on in amazement. How would that little thing make enough heat for the house? A few minutes later those questions were put to rest very quickly.

After starting the new furnace and burning off the oil that always smokes up the house a bit on a new startup the new little unit had the house warm as toast and was shutting down. Wow, that took less time than the old beast took to just warm up!

The renter related to me how that the old furnace cost over one hundred dollars a month just to run the pilot over the summer months. The wintertime heating bills were many times higher than that. The difference between the bills of the old unit and the bills that will be coming now will be unbelievable. A savings of 40-50% is not at all out of the question.

Now, if you are renting and are paying the bill to feed an old monster of a heating system, I suggest that you make a proposal to your landlord. Offer to pay a bit more rent in exchange for a new heating system. Not only will you decrease your gas bills enough to pay some extra rent and still come out ahead, but you will have the peace of mind that you have a safer heating system under the roof that you also live under.

No hot water


Lady may be tight, but she demands her rent on time and you no doubt pay more than the rental is worth. Most State Laws require landlords to make repairs within a reasonable period of time after the renter request service. Tight or not; she is responsible for the rental and you have Renters Rights. If you can't get her to fix the problem, withhold the rent and see how fast she reacts. Tell when she fixes the problem (In writing) you will pay the rent. If she tries to mess with you, report her to the State Rental Authority.

Ge Profile Stainless Steel Refrigerator panel replacement


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.
