Serial number M791969, subzero model 532, built Aug.1989

There is not ice build up anywhere, just dew-like moisture similar to the “sweat” that develops when you take a cold bottle out of the fridge and let it sit in a warm room for a few minutes.  This moisture is most often on the (fridge side of the) wall between the fridge and the freezer but it also appears on all the containers in the fridge and on the other walls and shelves as well.  Sometimes there are water droplets from the metal “grill” cover that is on the underside of the top of the inside of the fridge.  I think there is a plastic fan under this “grill” that circulates the air inside the fridge.

The fridge door seal was replaced in July 2007, is it possible the door seal was not installed properly?  Thanks for your help.

The first thing I would look at is the door seals,  Then I would look at the drains and make sure there clear,  then I would look at the tubes coming into the box from the compressor area to make sure theres no gaps around them, there is putty around them and it will srink up as it gets older. If you have a mold issue [as it sounds like you do] the water has to be in there for quiet a while. I would really look at the drain very close. Do you remember if there was a “Ice ball” on the back wall of the refg?  Is there any ice on any other walls? I also would like the seriral number if you got it.
