Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

Freezer works; fridge side doesn't

The freezer is working fine.  The refigerator side is not working at all, though it was working fine.  There is very little cold air coming through the vent even though I have turned the cool setting all the way up.  The air in the freezer is coming through full force.  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance.

    I have the same problem, my refrigerator side isn't working but my freezer is working.

    My refigerator door was staying open alot of the time until I repaired the closing cam. Now it isn't staying cold

    freezer is working fine. Fridge is maintaining temperature of 50 degrees. Cleaned the coils and there is no frost on the left side. Even turned down the temp control in the fridge but it maintains 50 degrees. What could be the problem???

First thing to check is look and see if there is  thick frost build up on the back lower panel inside the freezer?  If not there must be a problem in the damper (vent).  Let me know what you find so I can help.

I have a monogram ZIS420 the freezer works fine

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. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Side by side..fridge is freezing up while freezer works fine

Your baffle that controls the freezer temperature is possibly broken.  If you take the cover off the dials labeled "refrigerator/freezer" the baffle is a plastic arm that controls the amount of air circulation between the freezer and the refigerator. If the arm is broken is will stay closed completely blocking the air hole or vent.  I just wedged a small piece of wood or shim in mine and it hasn't frozen up since.

Good Luck.  I know how frustrating it can be to repeatedly defrost the ice build-up.

Maytag side by side model GS24C8C3EV Refrigerator too warm

it is almost certainly a defrost problem. when fault has occured, remove freezer bzck panel and see if there is ice build-up. if so this confirms a defrost problem - possibly that the element is open circuit
