Temperature problems in the GE Side-by-Side refrigerator: Fix
In this particular case, the heating element was faulty, which prevented the defrost cycle from running and melting the snow on the evaporator coil. This led to a blockage in the airflow through this coil and rising temperatures in both the refrigerator and freezer. Replacing this element and defrosting the evaporator coil restored the refrigerator to normal operation.
