Question about GE PSC25PSS Side by Side Refrigerator
The fridge side seemed like it was not cooling properly, turned it down to 34 and acording to the read out that was what it went to but still felt warm. So i put a secondary thermometer in it and although the fridge readout says 34 it is actually 40.
I had this same problem. You need to totally empty the fridge and freezer and allow it to defrost for 24 hours. Then put it back on and it will work. This happens if someone leaves the freezer door open and then it gets closed. The defrosted water freezes in the pipes and doesn't allow the cold air to move up into the fridge so the freezer gets even colder. This has happened to me twice!

your evaporator coil in the freezer behind the rear panel is iced up and cold air cant flow thru ice,defrost the evaporator coil,then check continuity of the heater element under the coil,if its good,then suspect the defrost control,usually located in the refrige side on the upper area

This is by design. It should be warm. This is where the heat exchanger is located to save space.
No worries.... right now it is being over-worked until it reaches operating temp.

This is compresso starting problem.
What you hear is the relay contact which is on and off and can stay on.
You need to check also the starting capacitor which near the relay. One of the two must be replaced with anew one, in some cases both must be replaced.
So check them both and replace the ones that are faulty.

Since you say that it still cools, you need to start out with a thorough cleaning of the condenser grill. If it the air flow is blocked or the condenser grill is extremely dirty or clogged with pet hair, then the unit won't be able to dispel the heat buildup cause by the coolant running through the compressor.
I have found that if you use an air compressor blowing from the rear and a vacuum from the front works pretty good.
