Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Freezer temp on GE profile French door fridge was rising rapidly. I believe I did not shut the freezer door tightly after retrieving something about 9pm. Outside of freezer on sides of fridge was very warm. I turned off late last night (mdnight) and restarted this morning. Temperature is going down in both fridge and freezer, BUT side of fridge near bottom is very warm again. Is this of immediate concern (i.e. overheating causign electrical fire.)?

This is by design. It should be warm. This is where the heat exchanger is located to save space.

No worries.... right now it is being over-worked until it reaches operating temp.

Have a GE side by side. My deep freeze was acting up so I just put all the food in the GE freezer. Some of the food was begininig to defrost but most was still frozen. The temp is rising from 0 to 14 degress over the past 2 hours. Is this common? Should I just give it several hours? I dont have the back vents blocked.

Had similar problem, freezer was working fine, but fridge was warm, (68 degrees) It wasnt my damper, the mother board was fried, and so was the inverter board that told the compressor what to do, after having the inverter and two mother boards replaced.......I threw it out, biggest piece of ****, only three years old, and Sears would not stand behind it, even though I used their repairmen. I will never buy another GE product, or enter a Sears store again
