Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
My refrigerator has stopped cooling and my freezer is building up frost when i remove the back panel the coils are iced up slightly i used a hair dryer on them replaced the panel and has started to repeat same symptoms while the refrigerator still has not started cooling again at all.
You have a defrost problem, which means the problem will continue to reoccur until you fix the bad part of the defrost system. Being that it's a GE, my first guess would be the heater, but you need to check to be sure.
Pull the interior panel of the freezer back off and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat for continuity. The thermostat needs to be cold when you test it, so leave a good amount of ice around it. If both of those test good, then the main control board (which controls almost everything on that unit) is bad.
When you find out the problem, replace the bad part and defrost the system manually again with a hair dryer.
Here are some photos to help you identify the parts to check, just in case you're not familiar with them. The control board is located on the exterior back of the unit, behind a small panel.
