F&P Dishdrawer vent causing mold in drawer below!

10 years ago

Our two single DDs,located on either side of the main sink, and each placed over same-sized pullout drawers, have been trouble-free since our remodel in 2005 (has it been that long?)


Within a month's time, one unit has started venting steam during the dry cycle into the large drawer below, allowing mold growth on the sides, and causing peeling of the paint on that drawer's face panel, AS WELL AS the face panel of a smaller drawer on one side!

The F&P repair guy recommended on the company's website said, "The machines always vent downward, yours has done it all along and you're just now noticing it."

I have a good collection of cast-iron pans and he's very lucky he didn't say it to my face.

Can anyone tell me
1. Why I'm getting this condensation and
2. What I can do about it?

Thank you all in advance for your advice!
