You have a defrost issue.Occurs when door is accidentally left open.(even slightly for a period of time). You need to do a proper 12 hour defrost to resolve this problem.(Fan is jammed due to ice build up)

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Neither the fridge or freezer side is working? what is the 1st thing to check the compressor sounds like it's running- could the defrost be stuck on or the mother board be bad?


Sure the first thing is to look inside the freezer and see if perhaps it is a defrost problem. That most times shows up as warming of the fresh food compartment and a layer of frost or ice layering the walls of the freezer with just near freezing temperatures. Most times people hear what they may think is the compressor running so I recommend that you pull away from wall and unplug, remove cover over compressor and feel top of compressor to insure that it has been running. If warm on top of compressor that will be OK but if cool or too hot to keep hand there we need to find out just what is going on. Most importantly you need to find Brand Name and Model Number=> Locating Model and or Serial Number GE has a way of locating models=> HERE

My refrigerator side is not maintaining a cool temperature, and the green temperature light is off (the freezer side works fine)


the problem is in the freezer side,all it does is blow clod air from the freezer to the fridge side so if the fridge is warm the freezer side is either iced up or the fan isn't blowing,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,also check the back inside wall of the freezer,you might have to pull the second from the bottom bin out and touch the wall and see if it's iced up or if there's frost on it,if so you have a defrost problem,let me know what you find and send the model number ,open the fridge door,on the right side up near the ceiling you'll see a tag with the model and serial number,i just need the model number and i'll be glad to help you

yes it sounds like your only problem is that the evaporator fan is not operating so open the freezer door and see if you hear it. if you do not hear a fan running in the freezer make sure that the other fan in the back and the compressor is running. just replace the evaporator fan in the freezer and that should do it
