Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
Every few weeks the ice in my freezer melts. It appears there is a problem with my defrost cycle. What could it be?
You will need to remove the bottom freezer crisper and check the defrost drain , to see if it is iced over . If so , then use a hairdryer to melt the ice ( hot water also helps ) . When you see the drain , ( could be obvious obstruction from plastic ) , use a small hose inserted into the hole , to blow thru , to remove any unseen debris blockage .
You may have to remove the rear inside freezer panel to access this drain , depending on your model number . So make sure the drainhole is open. When it happened to mine this was the problem.

Do you mean ice cubes melting or ice build-up on product or back wall ? Is the refrigerator side always very cold or does it also go through up & down temp every few weeks ?
1st, try reducing the air flow between freez & frig compartments either by changing temp settings or opening/closing the port door (if equiped) in the wall between frig & freez; htis port may be at top or at bottom of wall.
2nd, does the fan motor in the freez section make noise or occational noise ? Thid would indicate that it is notmoving at full speed and the air movement is slow----thus causing colder/warmer periods.
3rd, check the coil (condensor coil) under the frig; if it is loaded with dust and dirt then the frig cannot get rid of the heat build-up and you'll have these temp variation periods, also you are wasting electricity with a dirty coil. Good luck, Macgivor
