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.

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.

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.

Leak running down front

Take the recess cup out and seal the area around it right where the front stainless steel panel meets the recess (right at the front of the recess) with clear silicone to prevent water from getting inside the door, then running out of the plastic frame area around the dispenser and running down the freezer door or out the bottom of the door. After the silicone has set, replace drip cup.
