Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
If the frost builds up on the evaporator coil, sounds like the defrost heater may be out. Check continuity.
If the frost buildup anywhere else - there must be an air leak somwhere. Usually it's the gasket or the ice dispenser flap stuck open.

Tips for a great answer:
Oncce the fridge was shut off and left for a while the cooling had come back . If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
If after about 6 hours you observe cooling it is possible that the defrost timer is faulty.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
replace the defrost timer, heater or thermostat one you have confirmed to eliminate one by one.
