GE PFS22MISBBB freezer not cold enough. Temp won't reset.
This is a 2 year old french door, bottom freezer refrig. I noticed that:
(1) the ice holder had a lot of water in the bottom, with the ice frozen together;
(2) temp setting for freezer is @ 19 deg vs recommended 0 deg (fridge part proper @ 32 deg);
(3) resetting temp to 0, it still reverts to 19 deg.; and
(4) the main housing has warm spots on right & left sides just behind the drawer front for the freezer. The comparable strips for the fridge part are cool.
I slid the whole unit out and took off the aluminum cover over the compressor motor and coils in back -- which are hot.

The freezer cools the refrigerator, so you actually get very cold air passing from the freezer to the refrig. The air from the freezer enters the refrig on the top and falls to the bottom where it is drawn back into the freezer. The temperature of the refrig is regulated by a thermostat and a fan that runs when the thermostat calls for cooling. If the refrig thermostat is faulty and causes the fan to run more than it should, there will be a freezing problem in the refrig at the bottom because cold air falls and warm air rises. If the refrig is thermostat is calling for cooling constantly, this will take more cold air from the freezer than is normal. Your freezer temp might be higher than normal and the refrig will be colder then desired. If the fan from the freezer is running constantly I would suspect a bad refrig thermostat.
Make sure you dry everything in the freezer when you have the door open and remove ice. It won't be a leak it will simply be the warm air inside the freezer that has turned into condensation. Double check the seal around the door to see if it curled up as that could be letting warm in and cold out giving same results.
your "damper vent door" located between the refrigerator and freezer compartments is frozen open or the cold adjustment contron in the refrige is bad and not powering the door as you change the temp set for the refrige and leaving it open,if the door is frozen from ice/frost just de-ice it with a hair dryer and then set the temp adjust and see if it opens and closes with any adjustment
I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.
first check the tube running to the ice maker where the water flows in see if it is frozen if not take the cover off the ice maker front and see if the little tabs in the middle of the gear is broken there are two one might be broken off
if you have a french door (also known as bottom mount, freezer on bottom) and your fridge sections(cold air blows from freezer to refrig) is not cooling try this
1. ensure you hear the fan running, its it not, thats it(most likely fan motor IF fan is running check these things 1. ensure refrig section light shuts off by holding down the switch 2. ensure door shuts 3. clean conderser coils (usually accessed from front through base grille) 4. check for icing in vents, freezer section contain them at top or back, and for a bottom mount the refrig sections vents are under your BIG drawer. if iced try a hair dryer from distance. or empty food into another fridge unplug open doors, and plug back in two days later this should defrost all ice build up
