Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
If your model number is the Profile/Artica PSS26 model the most likely reason for this is a burned out defrost heater. Look into back of the freezer and tell me if a layer of frost is building up on the rear wall of the freezer compartment. If yes then unplug and remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer to expose the evaporator coil. If frosted over then you need to defrost with a hair dryer or leave a bucket of hot water in the freezer compartment until the ice melts away. Sometimes the defrost drain is frozen over and then the beginning of the frost becomes heavy quickly and temperatures begin to increase in both sides of your side by side. Lately I seem to be here and ge no response from anyone. I want you to a the least let me know if you need my help to resolve this. Sometimes the main control board causes this but not as likely as the defrost thermostat and defrost heater. Sea Breeze

I had a similar problem with my GE PSS26MGPA WW in that it would run continuously for hours. My wife had left the house for a few hours and returned home to find the freezer door cracked open just slightly. Based upon your advice I emptied the freezer, took off the back pannel, and found the evaporator coil covered in ice. 10 min with the hair dryer and it was all gone. Seems to be working great now. we'll just make sure we keep the freezer door closed...
