Question about GE GSS20IEM Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a relatively inexpensive Kenmore refrigerator/freezer that is less than 2 years old. The refrigerator works fine but the freezer temperature varies from +10 degrees to -8 degrees, literally from day to day and regardless of the amount of food in the freezer. I have the freezer dial turned to the coldest setting.
Any thoughts on what the problem is and what I can do about it?
Thanks in advance.

on the back of the frig is a small rectangle panel. inside that panel is the motherboard that controls the whole refrigerator. thoughs boards have been nothing but trouble. one of the problems it causes when it goes bad is the problem your having. replace the board to fix it

How to check
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost heater, defrost thermostat. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control board.

SOURCE: erratic temperature control
Unles this is a big change and is not affecting the fresh food sect temperatures.Those should be 38 degrees for food safety. As far as the temperatures measurements those are easily altered by placing articles of packages near the thermistors in freezer and fresh food compartment. There are many issues you need to consider with the model refrigerator Artic/Profile. They are very sensitive to power surge and simple failures. Hopefully your being only 2.5 years out GE has resolved the problems of the past.GE is a good company and they do support their customers through the 5 year sealed system replacement. There are very many models of your type. Could you send me the model number listed for example PSS26MRSS. If you could I will get you some information that can help you save you repair cost in the end, Now if there is a problem with the thermistors we will need to resolve that because it will cause more problems later.
