Question about GE Refrigerators
GE SSS25SGPA SS side by side refrigirator - freezer staying cold but not freezing
The freezer is staying cold but not freezing. At the coldest temperature it seems that it is staying cold enough to keep meat and such from going bad, but in no means freezes the stuff inside. The meat is always malleable and any sort of ice cream you put in always ends up liquid. When we put things in there completely frozen it ends up thawing out, not going bad, but not frozen like you would like your freezer to be. Any idea what could be the problem here?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

Hi: Meat and other frozen foods will be rock solid at 32degrees. Ice cream will be soft it needs 0degrees to be hard. It sounds like your freezer is above 0 degrees. You tried the adjustments. Make sure the coils on the bottom are clean. They will warm a ref if they are dirty. A coil brush from the hardware store or a air compressor (plan on dusting the house when done. Just vaccuuming the front isn't enough. That's an older model but one of the controls affects both the freezer and fresh food. When it's running turn one down; if it turns off the compressor it affects both. The other control is just an air balance, to direct how much air gets to each compartment. I hope this helps, Jeff

If the compressor (motor - black thing at back) is running all the time, then your fridge may be running out of refrigerant - and is dying slowly.
However - if it turns on and off happily, then it could be the sensor in the freezer needs replacing. You can buy these yourself and is just a plug-in , and a cheap fix for you.
If this doesn't solve the problem, it will be the control board is out of tolerance. You may be able to tweak it - or could be preset.
Try a new sensor first. Sometimes corrosion on the connectors is enough to cause problems. - take out and replace - or swap with the refrigerator sensor.
