Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
You don't say how old your unit is, so I will give you some things to look for.
1.Condensor coils must be kept clean. Inspect and clean if needed.
2.Door seals MUST be sealing tight so warm air does not enter the unit. Heat moves toward cold, so any void in the door seals will cause food loss.
3. Controls should be set fairly equal to each other, too much of 1 control over the creates unstable temp.
4. Limit door open times, get in, get out! Think ahead about what you want out of the unit.
5. Observe the compressor run time, if it's running continually, then you need to investigate the above issues. If no apparent cause is found, then you may have a weak compressor
Please rate this advice on helpful my answer was in resolving this issue.

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer or evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
