Question about GE Profile PSC25MSWSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
To start ensure that there is no problem with the defrost system. This is the most common cause for poor cooling, and will affect the fridge section more than the freezer section. A way of testing the defrost system is by leaving the unit disconnected from power for 24 hours, allowing full defrost.
If the unit is cooling regularly after defrost, that means that defrost system is malfunctioning or that damper fan was blocked by ice.
If the problem is the defrost system, then the fridge section will restart malfunctioning within few days or weeks.
If immediately after full defrost the fridge is still not cooling , then the problem can be a faulty damper fan, a faulty electronic temperature control, or a wiring problem. A problem with compressor on a three years old fridge is quite unlikely.
If defrost system was not causing the problem, then the fridge will still display the same problem after complete defrost.
If problem is defrost system, then parts to be tested are:
Defrost thermostat - If it is faulty it will read no continuity when using a multimeter to read impedance. Test must be done at room temperature. The thermostat can also be tested by jumping its contact.
Evaporator - See here for test and repair
heating element - It must have continuity.
Fan - the motor is tested jumping contacts and energizing it directly.

To contact an authorized technician or to check warranty status call the manufacturer at the number listed on the owner manual.
