GE PSW26M Artica Cooling and Ice Maker Problems

I have a 1 1/2 year old GE PSW26M Stainless Steel Refrigerator. For some time now the refrigerator side of the appliance has shown a temperature between 37 and 54 and the freezer has had a temperature of -5 to 20 degrees. The ice maker works only when the freezer is at a temperature of 0 degrees of less. The very odd thing is that the refrigerator cycles between being just fine for a few days and then it cycles for a few days of these extremely higher temperatures.

Temperature in refrigerator will not stay set. It keeps getting colder. I have a GE Artica model PSS27SGMD. It is a side by side with ice through the door. It is +- 9 years old

GE Artica had problems with the "Motherboards" originally installed. They have since switched manufacturers so my educated guess that is the problem.

My freezer (ge artica) temperature goes up to 40%, then cools dow

The main problem with the Artica/Profile is that they have a main control board and a thermostat board inside the fresh food compartment. I have a repair manual and will send you a copy if you want but we are going to have to look at the control boards for burn marks. Let me know if you need me. Thanks, Sea Breeze

FRIDGE FREEZER SIDE STINKS

That is your problem.
The plastic supply lines over time deteriorate and wind up causing the water to smell.
Replace the plastic line with a stainless steel ice maker water supply line available at any home improvement center. They are 1/4 inch inside diameter lines and fittings.
They come in 5/10 and 20 foot lenghts.
After you do this run about 2 gallons of water through the water in the door dispenser. Discard the first 3 drops of ice from the ice maker.
Your ice quality will improve.
