GE Profile CF24W-PL

Refrigerator side failure; freezer still still freezes but seems to progressively becoming warmer.  
Many thanks.

Our refrigerator will not cool below 48 degrees, but freezer is working fine. We set the fridge to turbo cool, which helps, but the unit will not cool properly.

Make sure the fan inside the freezer is running. If so, remove the cover from the back of inside of the freezer. If it is clogged with frost you have a defrost circuit problem. Most likely the defrost heater mounted at the bottom of the evaporator coil is burned out.
Post back with any questions and let me know what you find.

Its simple really,, Your refrigator needs re gassing,, call a professional and he will regas it.

When the gas is running low the fridge cools less and less and eventually will not cool at all when the gas is depleated. Its a natural process and any aircondition or refrigation professional should be able to come to your house and gas up the refrigator , a process that takes a few minutes.. I dont recommend you attempt to do it your self, as it will not take a whole can of gas and if by chance you use the wrong type you will spiol the compressor

GE Profile PSS26PSTA SS freezer problem

Forget the warranty - it is only for the compressor and that is usually five years. Did you check for freezer temp - wet cubes indicates too warm up there. Water dispenser lines may be clogged.

If low temps you may have low refrigerant or a defrost mechanism not working - if not working there should be ice buildup on line entering the evaporator in back of compartment.

GE Profile Side by Side Refrigerator

This is probably the ice maker water feed becoming detached from the back of the appliance. This is a fault of a leaky watervalve or low pressure allowing water to drip into the feed pipe where it freezes building up until the pipe blocks where water pressure causes it to bacome detached. Change the water valve and refit the pipe ensure there are no airleaks into the freezer.
