Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
First I had a problem with the start relay fix it and both sides seemed to work well for about a week. Then the refrig seemed to have stop cooling. I'm thinking it might be the diffuser or/and the refrig thermostat? Not sure. Can someone please help me I really don't want to buy a new refrig this KitchenAid SxS is only 6 years old.
When mine quit cooling I cleaned the dust off of the coils underneath and it started working like normal again. The major warehouse/hardware stores carry a brush specially for it. But first i used my vacuum with the pointy attachment.

Hi. As long as the evaporator motor is working its one of the two as you mentioned. If the compressor and evaporator fan is running and the refrigerator door has been open, with the freezer door closed, reach into the back left top where the diffuser is located and put your hand in front of it and see if any air is coming out. You should feel a moderate breeze. If not, open the freezer door with your hand in front of the diffuser and if the air comes out good now, the return air is blocked (normally ice build up). If no air is felt, the damper is most likely bad. Use a mirror and see if the damper is closed or frosted up. This can happen from the refrigerator or freezer door being left open for some time.If you have a mechanical damper, make sure it is set in the middle. You want more air to the refrigerator section. Email me on ebay, user name themackshack if you need parts! Good luck, Mack
