Question about Refrigerators
42" side by side, built in, with compressor on top has stopped cooling below 45 degrees in both compartments. I took it offline for six hours, no change. Compressor and fans are working. It is as if it went into a defrost cycle and won't come out. Is it the electronic board? The freezer temp reads "0"the fridge temp reads "45". It feels like "45" in both.:0/ Very expensive units should be better than this!
You can fool with this and loose all your food to spoilage or get a service tech out to fix it or just replace it.

2 possibilties most likely is a bad temp sensor it thinks its warmer in the refrig than it actually is. the next possibilty is a motherboard has gone bad in the unit.

This is typical for frost-free refridgerators/freezers. In order to keep ice from buiding up on the interior walls of the freezer section, the manufacturer installs electric defrosting elements and extra "warming" elements in the outer edges of the cabinet, normally around the door openings to help mitigate any frost/ice build up and surface condensation that typically occurs on the exterior surfaces as the doors are opened and closed frequently.
These edge warmers stay very warm to keep ice and condensation from accumulating and will become VERY very warm (hot) when the fridge/freezer is in the once a day defrost cycle.
Unless you have an energy saver switch (GE trademark) inside the fridge section, which you can turn off, there is no way to disable these added elements. If you find that you're getting ice building up in the freezer, you'll need to turn off the energy saver switch to resolve that issue.
Energy Saver switch "ON" means these elements are off, while having the ES switch "OFF" means those heaters are running all the time and costing you more in energy consumption

that would be a valid check
but with this model i would look more twords you thermister in the refer, if its maintiaing a constant temp, but just outta temp, its more than likely you thermistor is going bad

Testimonial: "it seems that even if I set the control to the coldest is dosen't affect the temps range"
