Sarct, the question is, was the freezer side ok, if it was, I would suspect the damper not opening. If the freezer side was warm too, then I would suspect the evaporator thermistor not sending the signal to the board to terminate the defrost. Have the tech first check the continuity at connector J3. He should have 400ohms at J3-1 to J3-2 and the same at J3-3 to j3-4. If he doesn't get those readings have him check at the damper motor itself. If he doesn't have it there, replace the damper motor. If the damper motor passes all the checks then it's on to the evaporator thermistor. Have him check the resistance. At 5 degrees it should ohm at approx 36K ohms. The evap thermostat is redundant to the defrost operation. It's there as a back up in the event the evap thermistor fails to terminate the defrost. It's normally closed and will open at 140 degrees.

OK, it sounds like you have a defrost problem. When left unplugged for a few days the frost melted off the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the freezer wall) but after you ran it again, the coils blocked the air flow again, usually happens after a week or so, depending on # of door openings, humidity in home, etc. Most likely you have a burnt out defrost heater.

SOURCE: Not cold enough

I opened the bottom panel at the back of the fridge and cleaned the coil because it was completely covered with dust and lints and less than an hour later the fridge side temp started going down and the freezer took five hours for the temp to start going down when we didn't open it for that much time. It's back to factory setting now and thanks for the blogs that I read that I was able to try different possibilities. Your site is very helpful.

Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I love GE Profile Units! This sounds like the switch may have a short in it. I would replace that switch asap and make sure your insurance policy is paid up just in case it does start flooding while you're away or during the night while you are sleeping. Hope this helps you! Ella

I have a GE Profile Arctica. Refrigerator side stays at 29-31 degrees no matter how high I set the temp. Modle PSC23NG. Can you please Help? Is this an expensive repair?


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,
