My Ge Profile side by side refridgerator does not get cold. The freezer section is a little colder than the refridgerator side. Resetting controls as stated in the owners manual does not help. I suspect there might be a problem with the compressor or compressor fuse and or relay. I would like to purchase or download the service manual so I may troubleshoot and purchase the necessary parts.

Fridge gets cold air from freezer to cool it. Your freezer is fine but not enough cold air is getting into fridge compartment. U have some dampers or louvers that direct air flow to fridge and if they are not set properly cooling will not be adequate. Check those out.
you should have a dial or knob that says freezer colder or warmer if so turn it for freezer to get warmer thast should allow cold aiur from freezer to enter into ref. that should make ref. colder. if to cold then dail it back a little at a time till ref. is what u like. ok try that. later gator.
This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section. Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor. This controls the compressor and temperature. The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes. When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section. Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting. One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment. Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section. If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.
I would also clesan the condenser coils off.
Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat (cold Control). It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually and will cause the fridge to get colder and freeze food. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge (it is the control that has wires, the other is the damper). Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike
There is no thermostat ( cold control ) on your model refrigerator . It works off thermistors ( 3 in the refrig section and 2 in the freezer section ) . These thermistors , operate by the coldness which in turn , less resistance to the main control board the colder or warmer it will provide .
In my GE side-by-side refrigerator (model number GSS20IEMDWW), there is a motor-controlled flapper door between the freezer and fresh food side. Cold air from the freezer side cools the fresh food side when that flapper door is open.
It is located at the top of the fresh food side on the dividing wall between the fresh food side and the freezer. If this is blocked with something (large left-over container, soft drink bottles, etc), it _may_ be enough to prevent sufficient cooling of the fresh food side.
Of course, there may be a more serious problem with the flapper door mechanism or the control unit that signals the flapper door to open/close.
The vegetable and deli drawers may have a small opening (manually controlled with a wheel or a slider of some sort) that connects those drawers to the freezer side, thus explaining how those areas are still functioning as expected.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer
through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air
through it.There is a flap you adjust
with the fridge temp control.Make sure the fan is running when the compressor runs.Make sure the vent(damper) opens and closes as you adjust the fridge temp control.
