SOURCE: ice forming on back of freezer , refrigerator side

You frig is not going through the defrost cycle. Locate the defrost timer and advance it to the defrost cycle.(one click). Empty the freezer and remove the rear panel. See if the defrost heater is starting to get hot. Located at the bottom of the evaporator. If getting hot, replace the timer. If not getting hot, unplug the frig and check the resistance across the defrost timer(should be a closed curcit when cold) and across the heater. If "0" resistance, replace heater.
When replacing the heater alwarys replace the defrost thermostat at the same time. Will save you work in the near future.

SOURCE: GE Profile SxS Fridge Mod# PSC23MGPB

first thing to check would be to see if the unit is not going into the defrost cycle if you remove the rear panel on the inside of the freezer and check to see if you have an ice build up around the condensor area. while you also have this panel removed you can also check to assure that the fan located in this same area is working properly. Here is also a link on why this happens click here if you do have ice build up you should take a hair dryer to defrost the ice that is built up around the condensor. Also if you do have this ice build up in order to find out which piece is causing your defrost malfunction you can performin with a multimeter continuity tests on the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater as well here is also a video on how to test the defrost timer basicly if you pull off that rear panel and the fan is not working you would just replace the fan . Remove the rear panel first and message me back if you have an ice build up and we can solve your refrigerators warming up situation also if you have any further questions message me back with these as well note some models do not have a defrost timer instead they have a pcb board in which it controls the defrost system differently then the timer if you have the pcb instead of the timer and you feel that it is not either the thermostat or the heater message me back this information as well 87% of the time that this happens it is due to the defrost thermostat they are a very cheaply made piece and do short quite easily. Also please remember when our chat has FULLY CONCLUDED to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks for using Fixya

My GE model GSH25KGMB BB side by side refrigerator is not cooling on fresh food side. Freezer and ice maker side working fine. How should I troubleshoot this?

On your model I would go straight to the defrost heater and defrost thermostat and check them first after defrosting the evaporator first with a hair drier. Both parts need to be replaced=> WR51X10055 Defrost Heater Assembly 25953576-emtx2i4tcmlh0qfjbwwrn2z1-2-0.jpg and the=> WR50X10068 Defrost Thermostat APPLIANCE 911

Refrigerator and freezer are both cool, not cold.

Pull refrigerator away from wall unplug remove lower cover and feel top of compressor. If too hot to keep hand there leave unplugged until start components, compresser windings and condenser fan can be checked. Let me know what you find and I can assist you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Have GE GSS25WGMC WW. Water dispenser dripping water at a constant pace. What could be the problem, is is something we can handle or should we get a repair person? What would be the cost expected?

There are only two reason that I know of. They are air bubles in the water line or the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator is defective on the dispenser side allowing water to bypass the valve while shut. I will be right back with part numbers, Sea Breeze

OK, This does not happen much on that model. This time I want you to work with me on the solution and test a couple test points on the motherboard. If you are comfortable with this let me know. It will require a voltage meter and an OHM meter. Let me know, Sea Breeze
