Customer Question

Our GE side by side is freezing on the refrigerator side. The freezer is fine. We have changed the settings, shut it off and restarted, unplugged and replugged. Nothing works.

This is going to be the temperature control thermostat, thermistor or the control board.

I pretty much knew that but my question is still what do I do about it. I live on an island in Alaska. Not a single repair guy here. Can I fix it, and if so, how?
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 2 months ago.

You can test the thermostat and thermiistor with a multimeter for continuity. If they test continuity then the control board will need to be ordered and replaced. If they dont test continuity then replace which ever part is faulty.
