My side by side fridge was doing the same thing. I replaced the thermister and defrost heater. Check to see if you are having an excess of ice building up in your freezer. If you do, your defrost heater (simple little fix needs to be replaced). It looks like a mini flourecent light bulb, except has a spring-like coil that runs through it. This is what heats up coils in your freezer to prevent all the frost build up. If too much frost builds up on the coils, no air can pass over the coils which blows into your fridge portion of your unit. Depending on the type of fridge you have you may have 1, 2 or three different thermisters. These look like little probes, and they act like your thermostat in your home. (It tells the fridge when it needs to run)
Hope this helps!

Refrig compartment does not cool on my new Kemore Frig.


Check and make sure the fan in the freezer is running. if not possible bad fan. If fan is running, check to see if you have any ice built up on back freezer wall. Normally frost type ice. If so, you may possibly have a bad defrost bi-metal mounted in the freezer section. Next could be a defrost timer control. Model number usally will help more in getting it right.

Refrigerator not cooling very well, upper freezer appears tobe ok


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

Model is GSS25WGMD WW No cooling in freezer or refrigerator


look for ice or forst build up on the rear wall of freezer compartment, sounds like you may have a defrost problem. this will affect temps in freezer and refrig. the most common def problems for GE are bad defrost heaters. these are model specific and fairly easy to replace your self. i got this part number form Sears.com WR51X10055 good luck peyton
