Question about GE PDS22SIS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
My GE profile bottom freezer (model number PDS22SISARSS) seems to be running all the time suddenly. It's currently set to 0F for freezer and 37F for refridgerator. The temperature seems to vary between -1F and 1F for the freezer and 36F and 38F for the refridgerator. The temperature seems to go up whenever it goes through its defrost cycle. Otherwise the fridge is always running.
However, when the freezer and refridgerator temps are at or below target and if I hit the temperature controls, the refridgerator stops running until the temperature goes back up above target. Then it starts again, but doesn't turn off again.
Any thoughts? Trouble shooting tips?
check that compressor is not cutting out on overheat and hence cooling stops. feel compressor when it has been running for some time and see if it over hot

SOURCE: Does not stop cooling down
Door edges being warm is caused by what is called mullion heaters that operate to prevent humidity from condensing at these points.
Some refrigerators have an energy saver switch. Turn this switch if you have one to the energy saving position when the humidity is low. Is anything freezing in the refrigerator? If so setting the controls to a little higher setting may solve your problem.

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.

Yeah, same problem. There are two capacitors that seem to be prone to going out. You can replace the main board, or (if you can solder) replace the two capacitors with slightly larger ones (radio shack mdl number 272-1030 works) just remember to bend them away from the heat sink if you go that route.

it;s probably not going through the defrost cycle or its getting stuck in defrost .. on the back of frig the is a metal cover plate . in side you will find the main board . replace it . it runs the compressor and defrost and controls tempt . this is a very common problem . the new boards are better . and they cost a litle more . mm hope this helped / feed back pls .
