Re: Refrigerator: Is this the design?

What you have is a very cheap refrigerator, likely built overseas. It uses a constant cut-in thermostat. The dial adjusts the temperature at which the refrigeration system cuts off, but the cut-in temperature is always fixed at a temperature above freezing to allow the "plate" to defrost. The freezer has no direct control, it is just along for the ride with the frig side, receiving part of the cooling effort.

For a 2002 box it is in horrible shape.

From what I see, the door seals are shot to hell.

Right on target

10 years of abuse by tenants. Also probably a very cheap fridge to begin with.

Just seeing the floor around the fridge (look at that huge gash in the laminate flooring), it looks like that apartment has seen some abuse and properly not well maintained.

Another thing you may want to think about and do...

I don't know about where you are, but if a fridge is inluded w/ the apt and written in the rental agreement you should go direct to your rental board (or whatever you have in Fl) and file a complaint to get both:
a) a retro-active reduction in rent till the fridge is replaced
b) a new fridge

Normally you would talk to the owner first, but if he stalls or blows you off, then you should do it.

You need to take it out of service or figure out where the leakage is at least.

Condensation from door leak. End of story. What you have is a 40 pint dehumidifier with no collection bucket.
