If solution #1 fixes the problem, but it happens again, then check to see if you have water leaking from the ice maker area. I had a similar problem with my same model, and found that the ice maker water fill tube was leaking where connects to the connector in the back wall of the freezer. Water was leaking onto the freezer coils, causing it to go into defrost for long periods and both the freezer and fridge would warm up.

Getting to the fill tube is not an easy job. If you just pull it out without disassembling the fan compartment, you will probably not be able to get it back in.

You will likely want to move your food, unplug the fridge and thaw it out. Disassembling the top compartment on the inside of the back wall of the freezer is a tedious and time consuming task. After that I was able to just pull the tube out and turn it around and push it back in for a snug fit. You might consider using a sealer.

You most likely have a defrost problem. Check the inside back panel of the freezer. See if there is ice built up. If so, you have a problem with the defrost. 85% of the time, it's caused by a bad heater. It could be the termination thermostat, timer or fan. If the ice is built up. Take the panel out and defrost with hair dryer. If you want, you can now check the heater and termination thermostat. It's a closed switch that opens on the rise. If you fix it your self or not, To save your food. You can replace the panel and turn the fridge back on, it will operate correctly for 3 or 4 days. This will give you time to either get the part and fix it or for someone to get out and repair.

SOURCE: my GE fridge won't stay cold. The freezer up top

How to check parts
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp
..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

The main board on the back of the unit has gone bad or in lockout. Try unplugging unit for about 30 seconds. Then plug it back in. If it doesn't start the board is bad. wr55x10942 at about 169.00. Hope this helps. Very common GE problem

What causes the coils behind the panel in the freezer to freeze up and stop the freezer fan? top half of freezer defrosts, lower half stays cold.Fridge is side by side and freezer fan keeps turning of


When the evaporator fan motor stops running the top half of the back wall of the freezer will frost over and the the only reason the lower portion stays cool is because cold air falls. More than likely you have a a dc motor fan and its bad, but be wary with ge, the main control board could also go bad causing the fan not to run.

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

New french door GE fridge that won't stay cold


If " new " is less than 1 year , you will need to call GE factory service , for a warranty repair . If any one else works on it , this will void your complete warranty , and they will charge you for a service call + parts + labor .
