Ge side by side not cooling enough

My GE side by side is about a year and a half old. Lately it has not been getting cold enough in the freezer or fridge sides. I found a lot of "fluff" on the vent over the condenser so I pulled the back off and cleaned all the dust off. I noticed that although the compressor was warm it didn't seem to be running.the condensorfan and the fans inside the fridge were running.

    My GE Adora Model dss25ksra refrigerator decided last night to stop working. It's a case of "the lights are on but nobody is home". The lights inside will come on when the doors open, but the compressor and fan are not operating. I pulled out fridge and vacuumed off the dust from the compressor (which I occassionally will do) but this didn't seem to help. I looked for a reset switch on the compressor thinking maybe it could have overheated, but I couldn't see a reset. Do I have a motherboard issue here? Thanks, David

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.

If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

GE Side By side doesn't cool and freexer frosts up

Most common problem on GE's is the defrost heater(s) has gone bad. They are a glass tube and when they go bad the tube will have a burnt or black color to it. A good heater will be clear. I bet that is your problem. Seems to be the problem about 90% of the time on GE not defrosting.
