Hi!!
The clicking noise you hear is the start relay, this is followed by a humming noise, that's the compressor trying to kick in unsuccessfully. The most common problem it is the start capacitor, located on the side of the compressor. Check on the back of the unit that the condenser coil is clean, if not, disconnect power to the unit and use the vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment, be careful with the coils, they bend easily, when you're done cleaning the coils, reconnect power to unit and notice if the condenser fan will kick in when you turn the temp. dial from 0 to 1 or 5, you already said the evaporator fan (inside the freezer is working).
If both fans are working, the evaporator coil is clean and the compressor won't start when unit is turned ON, let's begin by changing the start capacitor. $19.49 at Sears Parts Direct http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/GE-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/WR62X79/0046/363/Model-GSS25SGRFSS/0432/0165000?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=0165000&searchModelNumber=GSS25SGRFSS&subCompDesc=Sealed%20system%20&%20mother%20board&brandDesc=GE&modelDesc=REFRIGERATOR-R-SERIES&blt=11

Top of fridge freezing with temperature on lowest setting


You need a new thermostat but there are some things you can check in the link. 1 is the warmest setting.

Most refrigerator temperature settings are controlled with a dial or slider. They are sometimes labeled 1 through 5 or 1 through 9. If you are not sure what to set it to, then set it somewhere in the middle. If the dial is numbered 1 to 5 set it on 3, if the dial is numbered 1 to 9, then set at 4. USUALLY the higher the number on the temp control dial, the colder the temperature your refrigerator will get. If your drinks and food are not as cold as you like, set the temperature dial up one number higher. If it is at 3 and you want your food colder, set it to 4 and test 12-24 hours later to see if your food is at the temperature you want.

Is the temperature "N" the coldest or "+ "the coldest?


N stands for normal. Usually normal is midrange while + is either colder (for more refrigeration) or warmer (for higher temperature). Check the end of the scale for the word , coldest. There will typically be arrows pointing toward colder/est as well. Best would be to move the dial just one (hopefully an) increment and come back 24 hours later and check for a decrease on the thermometer (yours or the reefers built-in one). If it moves the wrong way (assuming constant ambient temperature) try dialing the other direction. .

The dial on my water c ooler has a +and -which is colder?


My guess is that moving the setting in the + direction makes it colder. My refrigerator uses numbers; the higher the number, the colder it gets

Refrigerator freezes food in back


You can always turn down the intensity of the chiller. There should be a dial on the roof of the fridge part, the higher the number, the colder it will get. There's usually a small vent from the freezer to the fridge, and it's generally in the back of the fridge. Plus it stays colder there than in the door or front of the fridge.

Is the dial to adjust temp coldest set at low numbers or high number?


The dial inside the fresh food compartment, the bottom compartment
set to middle or above (higher numbers mean colder). Usually 5 to 9 if it has numbers.

Freezer knob in the middle if it has one. (If you set a freezer knob to "colder" it cuts
off the cold air to the lower compartment). Hope this helps

My GE TFX30PP is constantly running and doesn't turn off. The freezer is very cold but the frig side isn't cold enough. A repair guy put in a new "cold contol" sensor but it didn't help.


This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the
problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section.
Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings
on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor.
This controls the compressor and temperature.
The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However
it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes.
When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section.
Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting.
One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment.
Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section.
If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.
I would also clesan the condenser coils off.
