where is the ice,is it on the food and shelves or is it on the back inside wall of the freezer?if it's on the back inside wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on your model number,if it's on the shelves,door and food packages warm air is getting into the freezer somehow either from the door not closing or the door was left open,could have a bad gasket on the door,the ice chute door could be broke and not closing.let me know what you find and the picture shows a side by side but i'll need the model number too,if it's a side by side or freezer on the bottom the model number should be in the fridge section,on the right hand wall up near the ceiling,if the freezer is on top the number should be on the left side wall in the fridge section up near the ceiling.but with this hot wheather we're having if the door was left open this will happen,you can shut down the machine or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer and melt the ice with a hair dryer,don't do this with the machine running because the hot air will cause the same problem,after the ice is melted you can put the food back in and restart it.

Freezer works but fridge remains warm.


The same fan that circulates air in the freezer also blows air in to the fridge. If you open the freezer door and hold the door switch closed you should hear the fan running. If not you have a failed motor or motor control. Look at the back wall of the freezer section and see if there is a heavy frost build up. If so. you have a defrost system problem. Please post back with what you find and with the complete model number and I will try to walk you through the steps of checking everything.
Thanks/Mike

My refrigerator side is not maintaining a cool temperature, and the green temperature light is off (the freezer side works fine)


the problem is in the freezer side,all it does is blow clod air from the freezer to the fridge side so if the fridge is warm the freezer side is either iced up or the fan isn't blowing,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,also check the back inside wall of the freezer,you might have to pull the second from the bottom bin out and touch the wall and see if it's iced up or if there's frost on it,if so you have a defrost problem,let me know what you find and send the model number ,open the fridge door,on the right side up near the ceiling you'll see a tag with the model and serial number,i just need the model number and i'll be glad to help you

Center support of Side By Side is Hot to the touch


Hi, welcome to Fixya. The heat between the doors is normal and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider. If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about. Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning. If not turning it can cause the unit to become extremely hot. The amount of heat can and is determined by several factor's such as, temperature setting - lower/colder the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip. The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs the hotter the strip. The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat causing the strip to be hotter. Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils ( they should be vacuumed annually ) - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip. These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors. If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned. Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward. Please take a second to rate the info provided here. Macmarkus :)

The refrigerator temperature ins 50 and the freezer is 15. Is this the appropriate temperature? The butter is soft at this temperature


the fridge should not be above 40 degrees and the freezer not above 30. check back wall of freezer for frost. if so, coils are iced up and need to be defrosted. either take off back wall of freezer and melt ice with warm water or hair dryer, or unplug unit and let it set with doors open for a day. then clean up the water.

GE refrigerator model PSS27MGMBB Freezer is not working


Open the freezer door and look at the back wall. If there is frost on the back wall, you have a defrost problem, which means air cannot circulate over the cooling coils located behind the freezers back wall. You will have to remove the back wall and melt all the frost with a hair blower, then replace the defrost heater. (part number WR51X10055) . This is assuming that the fan by the compressor and the one inside the freezer are working.
