Dear GE Tech's:
My GE Profile, Model PSS26MSWCSS, Ser AR430186, Appears to be stuck in a Defrost Mode on the Frig side only, Temp Reading on Display is Freezer -1, Frig 89. This happened some time in the middle of last night.
Qusetion does this unit have a Defrost relay that could be stuck? Does it have a Mechanical defrots timer or computer controlled defrost?

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.


this has a defrost control board, its actually the mother board, if you pull the refrigerator away from the wall there an 8X10 " cover on the back, its located behind that cover, you can order this @ G.E. had to redesign these 4 times because of failure. thanks, Bryan

Wow that looks full of relays, Thanks Bryan...

My Wife is reminding me that a month ago this same unit started leaking water from the right side underneath the Frig, so i shut off the Supply valve, & Forgot about it. Of course the Ice Maker & Filter system has been down. what can i do about this issue?

was it the right side looking from the back or the front of the refrigerator?

Right Side Viewing from the Front...

most likely the water inlet valve or one of the plastic lines, the valve is # XXXXX
