Question about GE GSS25LGM Side by Side Refrigerator
The freezer seems to work fine; I used a brush under to clean it but the fridge still not get cold enough. It registers 50 on thermometer.
the fridge started warming up but the freezer was fine. i took the freezer panels off & it was iced up. i manually defrosted the freezer & all worked fine for about 5 days so i manually defrosted the freezer again & fitted a new defrost timer but i still don't think its working.my mate mucked around with the freezer thermostat setting.could this be the problem?
This could very well be the problem if the coil is iced over. I replace my defrost components and now they work fine. My fridge just doesnt run long enough to keep the fresh foods cold. I have manually diverted more air to the refrigerator side in order to get it down to around 37 degrees. As soon as it reaches around 37 or 38 it will cut off and go into defrost. Box will stay off a long period and the refrigerator temp will climb to over 50 degrees. It is a junk *** Maytag MZD2766GEW

You have either a Defrost heater / a defrost timer/ or a defrost bi-metal that is bad. if you post your model # i can look it up and show you how to set it into defrost to see if the heaters are ok
Since you replaced the timer already that leaves two things you need to check set it into defrost if you know how and remove the panel in the back wall of the freezer you should see the heater(s) are on if not check pwr 120vac at the heaters if 0 volts the bi-metal is bad

If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.
If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.
