Refrigerator stops getting cold - GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

  • al1626 May 05, 2008

    A week ago, the top freezer wasn't cooling at all. I opened the back panel and found ice formation clogging the cols air flow. I defroze it and cleaned the fan found at the bottom of the ref. I t worked for a week but now the fridge is not cooling. I suspect the same thing but I wnat to make sure what causes it to form ice and block the cold air flow to the fridge. I hope you can give me advise before I call a technician. Thanks. By the way my ref is a GE Side By Side model.

My refrigerator sounds like it is sending Morse Code. It has stopped making ice. The freezer is cold, but the top half or refrigerator part is only partially cold.


You have a defrost problem. Evaporator is hitting built up frost, which is restricting air flow to the refrigerator (how it gets cold).

The refrigerator is not keeping tempurature. Freezer is working fine


Either the freezer fan has stopped blowing air or the defrost timer has stopped and the airways to the fridge are clogged with ice. Only the freezer gets cold in a refrigerator. The fridge part gets cold by cold air being blown through air passages from the freezer. Good Luck!!
