Just had the thermistors replaced in the frigde freezer the fan is working now and the freezer is - 22 but the fridge is at 14 degrees.

Where are you getting these temps from? If your unit is in Celsius mode, that would mean fridge is 57.2 degrees and Freezer would be -7.6 degrees. Without a model number I am unable to see the style of controls you have. Double check all settings are in the middle, meaning if you have a digital display, temp @ 0-36, if you have dials make sure they are set to the middle ie..(a-e then set at c, 1-9 set at 5).

I hope this helps...

I have a GE Profile PSW26PSW. I bought it new in

If the condensor is dirty, the frig will have to work like the dickens to to stay cool. The condensor coils are either under the unit, or on the back. the newer units tuck them neately under the unit and a good toilet brush, degreasser soap, like "Dawn" works great. If she still is heading south, My first guess would be the compressor, or the thermostat. Try the Condenser coil cleaning first. Lloyd

I have a GE side by side Fridg.that is approx 7-8yrs old.The freezer side is working fine but the fridg. side is not cooling. staying at about 50 degrees just barely cool.. This seemed to happened...

Setting the cooling setting up all the way will not help at all.Make sure your freezer and refrigerator controls are about the same setting. Temp. settings for refrigerator should be between at medium.. Freezer about 0 to -10.If it is a simple fix this will help.

Freezer on refrigerator continually runs. GE refrigerator is 20 yrs old. The refrigerator part cools fine. The top freezer is continually running, is also freezing well. Is this a sign that the freezer is...

well, if its 20 years old, and still cooling NORMAL in both the freezer and fresh food, with the controls at normal middle settings. then no, you dont need repairs. if temps are a little warmer, or even a little colder than normal, or in order to keep it at a normal temperature, you have to adjust the controls to a colder setting, then you might need a repair.

if it is cooling ok, and running more, the tradeoff of running longer, is its drawing less power than it used to when it ran "normally" so the trade off is about equal. factors that can make it run longer, is it near a heat source, is it sitting in the sun most of the day, is there not much food inside, is it being opened frequently, is it near the stove, are the doors sealing good, all four sides of both should be contacting the face of the fridge, are there any tears, rips or gaps in the door seals, i could go on.

Fridge temperature has suddenly dropped to 15

Check the door gaskets, condenser fan, refrigerator fan and the freezer fan. That should narrow down the problem.

Freezer warnm up

It does sound like the normal defrost cycle. Aslong as it stays at an average below 12 degrees it is normally working fine. Check to make sure the back air vents and front grille are clean and the fan by the compressor is running when the unit is on. It has to get rid of the heat so it will freeze.
