I recently purchased a side by side and have set the temp on the fridge side to the lowest readout setting of 34. Liquids didn't seem that cold so I put a remote, accurate temp gauge inside, it reads 37-38 deg. The freezer is also off by a few degrees as well but is at least freezing. BTW, the doors had been shut for about 10 hrs overnight when I took the readings. Guess I should give GE a call but if you have any thoughts.
Also AJ, you were so nice to send me PDF's in the past, would you have a Service Manual for this model as well?
Thanks! Love this site and have told others.
