Question about GE GSS22VGMCC / GSS22VGMWW Side by Side Refrigerator
I gave a GE SxS model GSS22WGMCC. A couple weeks ago it stopped getting cold enough even with the settings all the way up. This also caused the ice maker to stop working which I am assuming is because it wouldn't freeze. The fans are working and running constantly trying to get it to temperature but the air blowing out just isn't cold enough to freeze anything. I turned it off and let it defrost/dry out for a day and I plugged it back in and it starting working perfectly again. This lasted a week and last night it started warming again and everything in the freezer thawed. Ironically, the warranty expired in April and GE has been extremely unhelpful. Please help. Thanks.

i had the same problem and i replaced the defrost heater and it worked fine for about one month but now having the same issue. Most of the time from what I have heard it is the defrost heater (about $60 part). I might have another issue going on with mine like a defrost thermostat. Your defrost heater is right under the panel on the inside of the freezer section. remove white panel on back side of freezer section and remove two screws and two wires and replace it and you should be fine.

OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. The control board was faulty. This is what I suspected but I wanted a second opinion before buying the board. "
That model refrigerator uses the mother control board for deciding when defrost is to take place. It has no defrost timer or Adaptive Defrost Control like other refrigerators. This sounds like *********** board part number WR55X10942 is malfunctioning. The board decides most functions of your refrigerator. Until the board is replace I do not believe the problem will resolve itself. Thanks, Sea Breeze
