Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE Profile Energy Star Refridge...

I have the above 3 y/o fridge. Lately it seems to be limping along. The freezer doesn't seem to get cold enough to make ice and i've noticed things starting to thaw slowly. I put a dish of water in it last night and this morning there was a thin layer of ice on top but it should have been frozen solid. The refridge side also seems to be a bit warm for the temp setting it is on. I hear the fan (or compressor-or whatever) so its not completely dead. I'm wondering if before i call for service if there isn't something obvious i could look at. I don't know crap about this kind of thing. Any help would be appreciated...

    My fridge was left open for approx. 15 hours and now it doesn't seem to be getting cold. The temp has been set to 37 degrees but hte fridge doesn't seem to be getting colder. My freezer is also running at 17 degrees as opposed to zero degrees. What can I do? Thanks for your help

Brookid, first you want to start with the basics; door seals are good, light turning off with door closed, dispensor duct door closing all the way, condensor coils cleaned, evaporator fan and condensor fan are running. If you are satisfied that there are no problems here then you want to see if you have a heavy frost build-up on the back of the freezer panel. If you do, you have a defrost issue that usually involves the defrost heaters, main board or freezer thermistor. Tests will have to be made on the main board to determine these. If you don't have a frost build up, you need to check the airflow vents from the freezer to the refer compartment. I will attach a photo of a refrigerator with a defrost problem. Catriver...post back.

Ice in freezer, on back wall, but products defrosting


Temperature Sensor in some models is located badly. You need to defrost the whole fridge by powering off then. The sensor will work again. We found this occurring because we'd go on long holidays.

Ice maker stopped working, plus fridge not cold, but freezer o.k.


I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.

How old is the fridge?

You did all the right things!!

But this sounds like a bad thermostat.
or a bad control switch.

Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here!
Let me know how you do! Or if you need something else.
We do have very good sponsors here on this site that do repair work, should you take this course!
