My French door Electrolux refrigerator is very cold on the exterior back panel behind the ice maker. As a result water condenses here and drips down. A rust spot a has also developed. Not sure if this is related, but my my freezer stopped cooking a few months ago and an Electrolux technician fixed this by replacing a broken thermostat. I booked a $99 visit for the to come out again for my condensation issue, but now wonder if this is likely fixable for a reasonable price or if I should just buy a new refrigerator. Thanks!

Here's our main thread on this issue:
Frigidaire is owned by Electrolux.

The kit to fix it is north of $500, with the age of yours, its best to save the repair money for new refrigerator.

Rear Panel Kit: Part # 5303918657

Labor Day Sales start this week, we recommend Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, Amana.

Thanks, Jake for your reply. Your advice is much appreciated. Paying >$500 to repair this too much. I canceled my technician appointment. Am shopping for a new refrigerator.
