Question about GE GSS25JEMWW Side by Side
I have model gss25jfmd and both freezer and refridge stopped working. I shut off unit for 12 hours cleaned, vacummed, mopped and than plugged back in. Freezer now works fine but fridge only goes to 50 degrees. Any ideas will help
SOURCE: fridge does not get cold
I had the same problem. The problem was my freezer was not defrosting itself and for a while i opened up the back and manually defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer (to make it defrost faster) and lots of towels (to soak up all the water). I replaced the defrost heater in the freezer and no more problem. Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model # then look for the part. Hope this helps.

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

Hi - I just had the same problem on a 48 Monogram 1996 model.
The guys at the factory told my local service center that it was the main logic board ($200 for parts) and they replaced it, but that wasn't it.
It was the evaporator sensor. i don't claim to understand it all, but I think that the sensor is responsible for telling a heating element to turn on and defrost. If it does not do it's job, then frost builds up (You can feel the frost if you feel up in the freezer, up hight and in the front)) The frost keeps the cold air from getting to the fridge. Eventually the logic unit will freak out because ti is trying to keep the fridge cold, but the fridge send back that it is hot.
The repair guy may not want to replace the sensor because it is like an hour and half to get back in there. And it is a tight fit.

I have the exact problem. My unit is 6 years old too - purchased in 2004. I have located, after cleaning the coil under the unit, this is not the source of the real problem. I took the upper cover off which houses the main logic board to find if I flicked the comp relay "compressor" the compressor then turned on. I took amp readings before and after they were .2 without the compressor running and 1.3 with the compressor on. The main board will need to be replaced. Personally I will try to locate the actual relay and replace it on the board if possible.
