You may have enough "play" in the adjustment to pull the door in tighter but sometimes you have to file longer slots in the screw holes. The top hinge cover comes off and there should be 3 screws there, loosen them and see if you can push the door tighter and while holding it there tighten them up. Also make sure you nylon bearings on the pivot points (usually the lower one) are all there and working OK. It is not too unusual to have them break and not notice the little plastic pieces fall out then the door sags and doesn't seal good.

Top freezer door does not close tight

Sounds like the top hinge is loose. If the hinge has a cover, remove it then hold the door in the correct position and tighen the hinge screws.

Freezer is not cold enough.

that model is missing numbers. Checked the GE website and there are 3 versions of your fridge:
PSW26PSWSS
PSW26PSTSS
PSW26PSSSS

These are basic solutions to your problem that may solve it.

1. Check the magnetic/seal strip that is attached to the freezer door for breaks, tears or obstructions.
2. Check the temperature controls within the fridge and adjust accordingly.
3. If you are over stocking your freezer, take some of the large items out and check in a day if the temp is where u want it to be.

When opening either door, hear squeaky noise from freezer side--sounds like it is coming from the feet or bottom of the freezer

TRY OPENING THE DOOR UP ALL THE WAY AND SQUIRTING WD-40 ON THE BOTTOM HINGE.
LET ME KNOW IF THIS WORKS.. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK FOR DUST AND FOOD PARTICLES THAT MIGHT NEED TO BE SCRAPED OFF THE HINGE FIRST....

Ge armoire style condensation on freezer door

the condensation is due to a small amount of cold freezer air getting past the gasket. Warm the entire gasket up for a few minutes with a hair dryer and then close the door and keep it closed for 30 minutes. That will reshape your gasket and solve your problem.
