Did you clean it the filters recently? If you let your fridge go for a
while and never clean it, you will inevetibaly set the cooling level
higher and higher as it gets less and less efficient. Then if you all
of a sudden clean it, condesation will go way up and temp way down.
Everytime you open the fridge, like 18 cu feet of humid air goes in,
and as it chills, the water drops out.
Check the drain and then the door gasket. Some gaskets can be checked by
closing the door on a piece of thin paper and pulling the paper to see if it
has drag. Be sure to check all four corners. If you open the door a lot you
will collect more moisture as more "new" air will enter the box.
If this group ever has a FAQ section, this should be in there. It comes up
every other week. If you have that much water every day, I doubt it's your
gasket. You could practically leave the door open and I don't think that
would happen. The drain is clogged. Very common problem. Look here:
PhilBoy - The correct answer was given here by MLD, Big Al and Gerry. have
you tried their advice? If you do not know what they are talking about then
ask. If you tried it (Unclog the small drain at the low point of your moldy
channel (Clean it while you are at it)) and your problem is solved then a
thanks would be nice.
