Question about GE GSH25JFR Side by Side Refrigerator
Noticed drink from frig noticeably not as cold as normal 5 pm 02/27/08. Moved thermostat for frig from 5 to 9 and left all night. Frig no cooler this morning, 02/28/08, 7 am. Removed cover in upper left rear of frig to expose small door between freezer and frig. Unplugged the connector for the door control motor and when I reconnected it the motor ran and opened the door. I moved the frig out from the wall and removed the bottom rear panel so I could vacuum all the crud from the plugged filters. I washed the compressor housing off also. Nothing seems to help as the frig doesn't seem to be cooling down very fast. It has only dropped 5 degrees, from 60 to 55 degrees in 5 hours. It seems to me a small fan should have been used to move cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator instead of relying on convection currents. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
This is a sign of a short and should be looked at immediately. A smell like that is a sign of something burning. I could be the start relay and start capacitor with overload. But I would not sleep with the possibility of a fire. I will look over your model and see if I can find what this could be, Sea Breeze

I can help you diagnose the problems with your GE. Several things can cause these symptoms. All you need is a voltage meter patience and a want to, to repair and do it better than a paid technician. In most cases with the PSS26MSRSS the defrost heater is the cause for this. Look into rear of your freezer and back wall. Is Ice or frost building on rear wall? If yes unplug and prepair to remove contents in freezer compartment. Remove rear panel in freezer and use hair dryer to defrost ice until the defrost heater is visible. BRB , Sea Breeze

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick help - yes frost on back wall. Once I unload and defrost should I then take out defrost thermostat? "
