SOURCE: ge side by side not cool enough even on higher

I posted this on another problem, but this may help you too.
Check to see if there is frost on the back panel of the freezer.
If there is try solution below:
I had a similar problem. The frost in the back is an indication that your coils are frozen. This could be from food packages falling out of the freezer drawers in the back and blocking the air circulation vents or maybe the freezer door was not closed completely and letting moist/humid air in and freezing the coils.
For me it was the first problem listed.I had to completely empty the freezer and Frig. and take the back panel off in the freezer. There you will see the coils and lots of ice!
1. Remove all items from the frig. and freezer and unplug frig.
2. Pull all the freezer drawers out.
3. On my GE side by side I took the light cover off and removed the bulb. There you will see two panel screws. Remove the screws.
4. Now pull out the mouldings on each side and you should be able to remove the panel.
5. Take a hair drier and completely defrost all the ice from the coils.
Be sure to keep plenty of towels handy for all the water mess. Remember to keep an eye on the drain tray in the back of the frig. and use a sponge to collect the water that will build up.
Hope this helps!.....

SOURCE: have side by side ge, not cooling correctly, only


Have a look under and behind the refrig,see if there is dust and dirt on the condensor and condensor fan.

If so, lightly take a vacum and sweep it off.Also claen any dust off the front grill located at the bottom.

If this doesnt help you may have a bad defrost timer or your low on freon,which would require a service call.

you may not have enough air circulation at the rear of the machine when you moved it. if the machine can not loose heat through the radiator at the back it looses its cooling capacity. move it back to where it was?

Not cooling properly

Let it defrost for awhile. Hook it back up, After on for a bit, check the fan under the fridge to see if it works. Also is there any air blowing inside the fridge and freezer. If not then the cooling fan has gone bad. Thats easy to replace. If none of the above then eather the compressor is going out but doubtful being there is ice on the back. But the freon could be low.

GE not working

Change the defrost heater, It's located at the bottom of the frosted coils and should have a pink and blue wire running to it.
