Condensation on bar between top freezer and refrigerator, also in refrigerator just under gasket. How can I fix? replace gasket(s), defrost heater?

model 106.8612910 - purchased in 1992. About a month ago, noticed water droplets in refrigerator just in front of gasket (on top of molded door shelf). Also noticed that rail between the freezer and refrigerator compartments was covered with condensation. Also the gasket to the freezer has mold on it just on the part nearest the refrigerator.

This model has a mullion heater between the doors. There is a power saver switch that will turn it off or on. First check to see if the power saver is turned on. If so, the mullion heater will not come on. If no moisture forms with the heater off, then leave the switch on. If moisture does develop, then the switch needs to be turned off. If it is off and moisture is still developing, the heater will need to be checked. A technician may be needed to make this check. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website:

The gasket can be cleaned with warm water and a mild detergent. If you need more assistance, additional details will be needed.
