Vendo 81B sitting inside air conditioned condo.  I was experiencing excessive consensate to the point to where the drip was filling up every 18-24 hours.  I replaced the main gasket, glass door gasket (one of the two - the inside one looked newish), adhesive gasket on the cabinet body, plastic door liner, and re-insulated the door.  After all that, the drip pan fills up with condensate in 24 hours.  The thermostat seems to be working as the unit cycles on and off, but I am running out of ideas and will order a new thermostat just so I can eliminate that as a reason.

Any ideas???  I am stumped.

Check for misaligned doors, new gaskets can't help out-of- kilter doors, or a main door latch that wont pull in tight to seal properly,  Also check that your bottle door hinges are holding the door close & squared-up against the portal frame. If you can hear the evap’ fan running inside when you put your ear near the bottle door handle & it gets quieter when you push it in harder against the portal frame with your finger, you’ve got a loose or an out of adjustment hinge, sometimes a new gasket is “plumper” than the old original & the hinges need a tweaking.
