Re: ge side by side refer, no model number available at...
A flashing DE usually indicates a defrost problem on any unit, they don't flash indicating they are in defrost, soner or latter the problem will show. You could have an intermittant bi-metal or most likely it being a ge - a bad defrost heater. and there is always the possibility that it could be the board. It would have to be trouble shot properly

I had this issue after a power outage with our GE Profile Model GFSF6KKY Dispenser Model. No solution that I could find online helped me so I started trying different button combinations. Pressing Adjust Freezer and Adjust Refrigerator buttons at the same time and holding it for at least 10 seconds worked for me.
your main board in the rear area of the unit is defective and needs replacing,and also replace the ptc overload relay on the side of the units compressor too,both components just unplug and plug back in after removing and replacing the harnesses connected to them
Some have said that if you are fridge is still making ice, then your water line may be frozen. So you need to let it thaw out by leaving the freezer door open. Figure out somewhat to try and keep the cold air in by using plastic sheeting or something, until the line thaws. You can't dispense water with the door open, so reach up press the button that makes it think its closed and try to dispense the water..or just shut the door to test it out. I am going to try this when I get home today, because I am having the same problem on my GE model# GSH25JFTA BB.
Hi and welcome to Fixya. Once a door seal starts coming off it begins to deform and tear away from the mounting points on the inside of the door. Most of the time the only option is to replace the door seal You did not mention if it was the freezer or food section seal that was falling off.
If your model number is the Profile/Artica PSS26 model the most likely reason for this is a burned out defrost heater. Look into back of the freezer and tell me if a layer of frost is building up on the rear wall of the freezer compartment. If yes then unplug and remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer to expose the evaporator coil. If frosted over then you need to defrost with a hair dryer or leave a bucket of hot water in the freezer compartment until the ice melts away. Sometimes the defrost drain is frozen over and then the beginning of the frost becomes heavy quickly and temperatures begin to increase in both sides of your side by side. Lately I seem to be here and ge no response from anyone. I want you to a the least let me know if you need my help to resolve this. Sometimes the main control board causes this but not as likely as the defrost thermostat and defrost heater. Sea Breeze
fold the door gasket back remove screws on side,,, top... bottom ..put more insulation on hose keep it on the front side away from freezer and put it back together....make screws just snug until all are in(you may need to adjust door to close...when door will close proper tighten screws all the way
Mine has been doing this for over a month. Then on Friday it started making a clicking sound a CONSTANT clicking sound. I get home from a marriage retreat for families getting ready to be deployed and gee ALL my food in the fridge is BAD!!!!
My model number is ssh25kfrfww Please give yours. Also my door NEVER locked from day one. As my children are older I didnt think it was a big issue till today.
Hi. Its either a bad motherboard or control board. I would check the control board for any obvious signs of damage to the board first. I've seen the control board go blank on the GE side by side and it turned out to be the motherboard. The motherboard is located behind a cover on the back of your refrigerator cabinet. You should have a new motherboard on hand at all times because they fail alot. Be sure to put a surge protector on your refrigerator. Good Luck, Mack
