Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
Frost is forming on the back wall of the freezer. Tried removing icemaker so I could pull back panel off to see but could not get the line disconnected. Also, could not move the shelf. Was able to open the back enough to see ice formed all over. Melted ice with hair dryer and then plugged everything back in. Refridgerator is still not cooling properly.
It is a GE Model TBX18SA it is 15 years old.
