GE Refrigerator doesn't hold temp
I have a GE side by side (model - GSS25 WGPD). The refrig. temp goes to around 50F or higher. Then the freezer thaws a bit. I can see frost at the back of the freezer. (I opened the back panel but no ice on the condenser). Then it seems like it starts to work and temp goes all the way down to 30F in the refrigerator & the freezer side freezes. Again the temp goes up to 50 and the cycle repeats again. I had the sensor on the refrigerator side replaced last year (by a repairman who tried trial and error method and replaced pretty much every part including the circuit board etc and finally settled on the sensor! I wouldn't want to call him again). Any suggestions/advice before I call another repairman?

sounds like fan in frz isn't working properly. when it warms up is compressor running,fan in frz running?? this refrig is a little tricky to service. as you found out you have to know what you're doing. i would call a local guy, smaller, [1/2 page or less] in phone book and ask him up front if he's knowledgeble on the GE Artica's. although it worked for a year, who knows what first guy did. don't despair, competent servicer can fix this refrig no problem.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think it is the fan as well. For e.g., if the temp on the top shelf of the refrigerator side is around 45F, the bottom shelf is around 31F.
