GE Refrigerator, Freezer not cold enough
 
I have a GE side by side, Model GSL25JFTABS that is having cooling issues with the freezer. Will not go below 30 degrees. I have replaced the two thermistors in the freezer section, temp sensor & defrost, first, but saw no change. I just replaced the main control board hoping it would solve my problems, but Iím still seeing no change. Also, I donít have any ice buildup on the evaporator coils, but only the bottom of the coils gets frosty. Any ideas?

That would indicate a major system problem....leaker, restriction, inefficient compressor or any combination of these = BIG$

I have a ge monogram refrigerator. My problem is that the freezer didn't cool well, so I cleaned in the back of the compressor. Now the temperature starting to drop, it's was 22 and now it's 12. But the compressor is very hot, the fan works, and there was little water going down from the top of the refrigerator to the bottom . Any idea what should I do? Is it normal for the compressor to be hot? Even the cover door is very hot.
Help please

When running the compressor wil be very warm to the touch yes. If/when running all of the time the compressor can certainly get warmer than normal and be hot. *If* things are ok and the temp gets better, the compressor should cool once it starts to cycle on and off.

Should be 0ļF in the freezer and 40ļF in the fresh food section.

Nope, definetly not normal.
Give the refrigerator an 24 hour defrost with the doors open.

The freezer now is 16 and the fridge 40. The compressor is hot again. I will call GE for service.
