GE side by side refrigerator not cooling model-GSS22KGMDBB-need a repair manual
(Bayonne, NJ )
I don't know how old this refrigerator is, came with my the house that I purchased in 2004. Have already had the freezer fixed two years ago and now the service man is telling me that I need computer board and switch for the refrigerator. I've looked all over online to try to find a repair manual for this machine but it's not available. I'd like to try and fix this myself but without a repair manual or someone to show me how to do it I'll have to get a new refrigerator since the repair will cost me close to $500 and I've already paid $300 for the freezer repair. Can anyone assist?

You are not going to find a service manual for this or any GE refrigerator.
Try these two pages GE Refrigerator Not CoolingGE Refrigerator Not Running
If they do not help describe what it is doing. Is it not running at all? Is it running but not cooling? Is the fresh food not cold but the freezer cold? Are the fans running? Take the back out of the freezer and describe what you see.
On this model there are two things that give a lot of trouble. The defrost heater is one and sometimes the fresh food door will work its way down to the point that it will not make the door switch. If the heater is the problem the freezer coils will be wrapped up with frost like the one in the picture on the GE refrigerator not cooling page. If it is the door problem the damper that lets cold air into the fresh food section will be closed so no cold air will enter the fresh food section and it will not cool. To fix this simply screw the door back up by turning the bolt at the bottom of the door. This is all on the GE refrigerator not cooling page.
I will try to help you the best that I can.
