Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
Is there a reset...my freezer door was cracked open...everything melted overnight...The compressor sounded very loud for a while. The temperature Freezer temp won't get lower that 38 and fridge temp is stuck at 44. Is there a reset mechanism? I can't find my book for troubleshooting...
There is a timer that determines the defrost of the cooling coil inside the back wall of the freezer. defrost timer may be located in the area of the controls for temperature. Look for a hole in that area and recessed in that hole you may find a clutch head screw. Turn this screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one click. The freezer coil will be in the defrost mode for 18-22 minutes and then the refrigerator should return to the cooling mode. Make sure the condenser is clean and free of dust and dirt. Condenser is where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system and on most models it is located in back behind a removable panel. Reinstall the panel after cleaning the condenser.

Sounds like ice buildup around the fan that's inside the freezer. My lousy GE 3-door did that when the bottom freezer didn't get completely closed overnight, and everything behind the back panel, where the coils are froze up like an iceberg. I had to take the back panel off and melt it with a hair dryer.
See if you see any abnormal ice buildup, or if the refrig compartment is getting warm. That's usually a result of ice buildup. Another cause is a failure in the defrost cycle. It will freeze up after a couple days. This would usually be the defrost timer.
