Unit has to run long enough for temps to stabilize. Usually 24 hours.

The problem was the fan. It was hitting the metal enclosure and had stopped working. We made an adjustment and cleaned it and now it works fine and the hot spots are gone.

i have seen this problem before
its the control board in the back the board is about 150 dollars
and it goes every DING DING 5 years lol
horrible design of the one that comes on the fridge every ge side by side has this problem
its very easy to replace but have to "ground" yourself before you touch the new control board meaning rub you hands on plumbing pipes, not pvc or copper
good luck if you got questoins let me know

We have a GE Profile side-by-side refrigerator which we purchased in 2002, Model PSS25NGNACC. Today we had a repairman come to investigate why the Express Thaw 3lb. light was on and could not be shut off. If shut off, it came on again when the door was closed and reopened. The repairman called GE and learned that this light was an air filter change indicator which turns on at some interval (2 years, they said, although we don't remember ever seeing this before). The air filter involved is for the interior of the fridge and is not critical. GE said that newer master control boards have this function disabled, since people rarely changed the filter and GE no longer makes them. I have read our user manual cover to cover and find nothing on this filter. I guess we just have to pay the $70 dollars to have someone come and call GE to figure it out. But, enough of that. To reset the indicator, simultaneously press the following keys on the touchpad and hold for 5 seconds until it beeps:
Adjust Freezer Temp (Warmer)
Adjust Refrigerator Temp (Colder)
Lights and functions should return to normal.

The door light switch controls the evaporator fan which circulates the air through out the unit properly. Replace the bad switch and things should go back to normal. WR23x10161 at about 10.00. Good luck. Rick

Hi Mark and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Touch the front of the unit where the doors close and feel if it is very very warm to the touch. If it is very warm to the touch... here are the prime suspects:
1. condenser coils covered in lint
2. condenser fan not running or running slow.
An easy way to determine if there is a condenser fan or coil fan problem is to simply direct a floor fan at the base if the refrigerator. If it cools down substantially in an hour.... there is a problem with the coils being clogged or the condenser fan not running. If that makes no difference... before opening the back of the unit... inspect the back wall of the freezer compartment for any signs of ice build up. If you see ice-build up.... unplug the unit.. remove freezer contents and direct that fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. Then return the unit to normal service.... If the temps come down to normal... for 2 - 3 days then start creeping up again... you have an automatic defrosting problem.
Forgot to mention... make sure the evaporator fan is running at full speed.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Testimonial: "Thanks Kelly, Unit was loaded with ice. The heater was bad and I also changed the thermostat since it was opened. Thanks again Mark"
Tips for a great answer:
Hello Myles, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is not shutting off and it is making ice very slowly. If your refrigerator is too cold ice production will slow down. I would recommend turning your refrigerator up to the factory setting of 0 degrees inside the freezer and 37 degrees in the fresh food side. You may also have an issue with the thermostat and I would suggest performing a reset to help clear out any miscommunications within your refrigerator. In order to reset your refrigerator you would need to unplug the power cord for at least ten minutes. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
