I have a GE PFSS6PKXESS French Door Refrigerator. It has the

I have a GE PFSS6PKXESS French Door Refrigerator. It has the model 26 control panel. It is acting as if I pressed one of the temperature adjust buttons or did a turbo freeze start. The panel keeps turning on by itself chiming and going into turbo freeze mode. The display first gives the set temperatures, which I have at 2 deg F and 38 deg F. Currently it says the freezer is at -15 deg F and the Frig temp is at 38 deg F. The problem seems to be random as is the freezer temperature which seems change depending on how often the unit throws a fit (-2 to -15). It seems to throw a fit less if it keep the temperature setting at 2 deg F and 38 deg F but it is still happening (the actual freezer temperature ends usuall being colder than the set). This can happen once a week/day/hour or minuets apart. Would a hard reset of the controller board solve the problem? If so how do I do that? Could it be the key pad? How do I check that? How do I trouble shoot the problem? I have a DVM and enough electronic skills to test what ever needs to be tested or done to the electronics on the frig. Basically, do you know what the problem is?

I have an 11 year old side by side GE refrigerator that

I have an 11 year old side by side GE refrigerator that started acting up a year ago. Symptoms were that it would not hold a temperature in freezer or refer side. It would gradually warm up to 20 and 50 degrees respectively and then it would cool off to settings of 0 and 37 degrees. sometimes it would cycle back and forth for several days before stabilizing at set temperatures. I called the repair firm recommended by GE and in incompetent repair person (not a kid either) came out, spent 15-20 minutes and told me I needed to replace the unit. He said he could repair with a board replacement, but it probably was a compressor leak. He could charge me $500 to repair, but it would only carry a 3 month warranty and he would not recommend it. All the workings have been cleaned of dust and dirt (vacuumed) a couple of years ago and the environment is clean.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 11 years old. It makes no unusual noises. it is a side by side, ss, counter-depth. I will go get the model number for you. be right back. my guess is there is a sensor or a themostat in the unit that has failed. it is again going through the cycling back and forth from 20/50 to 0/387JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: no, not planning on doing the work myself model number PSW23PSSCSS and serial number MH424200JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: no
