Customer Question
I have a GE Profile...
I have a GE Profile. Side by side refrigerator/freezer. I am experiencing a lot of condensation inside the refrigerator on the dividing wall between the freezer and refrig. This is causing an accumulation of black mold in the refrigerator. What can be causing this problem and what can fix it?

those are your mullion heaters which are located all around the freezer and refrigerator doors underneath panels. The panels are in contact with the room air and can sometimes get below the dew point of the kitchen and will start to sweat. The electric resistant heaters are energized all the time to prevent this from happening. An energy save button on new models turns off this feature and is used when the humidity is low during certain times of the year.

If they are hotter than normal you can clean your condenser coil and fan in the back of the fridge and this usually will help.
