Yes your refrig is not defrosting automatically. You can start by removing the shelves in the freezer than removing the rear panel (the panel that is frosted half way). Use hair dryer to defrost ice from coil. This will restore your refrig temporarily. Your refrig has a pretty advance defrost system and is not easy to test. If you have a meter (volt-ohmmeter) i can help with diagnosis.

Same problem with GE Profile bottom freezer drawer fridge in Peterborough Ontario.

Repair man was here Friday and says the problem is ususally the circuit board not turning on the fan loacted at the back, bottom right corner when facing the back. It cools the coils located in the botton of the unit. Check if it is running. If not an external fan will help until the service man arrives.

But this didn't solve my problem. After he replaced the board it was fine for a day. But now, Saturday evening, the freezer is 20 degrees F and the fan is running! So there must be another problem. Dave

Sounds like you have a bad main control board . The original pt # is WR55X10552 . The replacement board is WR55X10656 . Your original board , is on a recall list , and GE should come out and replace under an extended warranty .

SOURCE: Hi, I have a GE

Hi Mark and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Touch the front of the unit where the doors close and feel if it is very very warm to the touch. If it is very warm to the touch... here are the prime suspects:
1. condenser coils covered in lint
2. condenser fan not running or running slow.

An easy way to determine if there is a condenser fan or coil fan problem is to simply direct a floor fan at the base if the refrigerator. If it cools down substantially in an hour.... there is a problem with the coils being clogged or the condenser fan not running. If that makes no difference... before opening the back of the unit... inspect the back wall of the freezer compartment for any signs of ice build up. If you see ice-build up.... unplug the unit.. remove freezer contents and direct that fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. Then return the unit to normal service.... If the temps come down to normal... for 2 - 3 days then start creeping up again... you have an automatic defrosting problem.

Forgot to mention... make sure the evaporator fan is running at full speed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Most likely one or both of the thermistors are bad. Usually pretty easy to find behind a vented cover about 2" X 1" on the side walls of the refrigerator and the top of freezer (if freezer is on the bottom of the unit)

Have a GE Profile bottom-freezer refrigerator, model #PDS22MBSBWW, serial #RL053351, approximately 5 yrs old. It has recently started making a "clicking" sound which goes on for anywhere from 1...

For the clicking if the fridge has been off for at least 5 min. and clicks when it tries to start then it may be the start relay on the compressor . If it does not stay off for at least 5 min then it may be the control which may also be why your display is not working.

Refrigerator not keeping temp.

There is normally a fan in the freezer (usually removing the back panel from inside the fridge will show it [sometimes you need to pull the bottom panel of the freezer off] The panels are normally secured with phillips head screws.). If it doesn't turn, it probably needs replacing. Make sure the coils are not iced over. [unplug while removing panels, then plug back in... the temp will have risen in the freezer so the fan should come on right away].

Make sure that the "vents" in the freezer (bottom of the freezer - in the front back or both) are not covered.

Some fridges have a separate control for fridge temp, make sure that was not moved, or try setting to a colder setting.

GE PFS22MISBWW is a piece of junk

One doesnt like to hear it but possibly cut your losses and look for a less complicated fridge with minimum electronics.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

GE Profile French Door Bottom Freezer not cooling

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.

Refrigerator will not cool

Do you mean the display won't go below 70 or that the actual temps won't go below 70? First try to unplug the refer for 20-30 seconds then plug it back in. Hopefully that will reset the levels to factory settings (usually around 0 for freezer and 36 for refer).
