Sounds like you could have a bad mother board. Very common problem with the GE models. It will shut compressor off, than everything starts to melt, then it comes back on. Replace main control board and it should resolve your issue.

Check the defrost timer and be sure the condenser coils are clean.

    There is no defrost timer on this ref. It is all controlled by main board

    Yep and the defrost timer is software on the main board.

You need to replace the water valve. It is not sealing completely. Also make sure you have good water presure to the valve.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS

it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

The water on the freezer door will not work ice does dispense. this is a ge side by side model GSL25JFTA BS.

most likely you water solenoid is bad. need to make sure you get voltage(120v) to water solenoid. if voltage then the only other thing that could be wrong besides the solenoid. would be a kinked hose or the line (has a small chance) has frooze inside the door panel if sprung a leak.

The freezer section is cold but not freezing, I noticed that the back panel has frosted up from top to bottom. The motor of fan in the freezer section is still operating. Also, water on door not working....

This is due to a defrost issue.

What happens is, your coil will freeze up, blocking the airflow into your fresh food side, this making it warm in there. This also makes your freezer side, not cool properly either, because the air cannot circulate around as well. This may be your control board on the back of the unit, as it several relays that control all the function of your unit. This could also be a bad heater and Bi-metal.

What you'll need to do, is open the freezer, remove the the racks, and then remove the back panel of the freezer, be sure to unplug the unit first. Get yourself a hair dryer, set on medium, not to high, it could melt your plastic on the sides of your machine. You'll need to melt the ice off your coil, once this is melted, the unit will temporarily work, until it starts to freeze back up. Once your in there, you can check the heater, with a multi-meter, to see if it has continuity to it, or to see if its broke, as its a glass heater. If the heater is fine, (not broke, and has continuity). You are looking at replacing the main control board, which sits on the back of the unit, freezer side.
