SOURCE: I have a GE profile refrigerator. Model# is

You need to "reboot" the computer--unplug, count to 30, replug. Wait about 15 moinutes to see if it comes back. Our brand new one did not come up to temp until after we did that several times. Tunrs out 1 week later we had a catastrophic failure of the temp mechanism--it read properly but everything was warm. (the door was not left open) Ruined some very expensive food (steak, lobster) we were getting ready to entertain.

When we re-booted several times it got back to temp. GE refused to send someone out because eventually, the computer got "unstupid" and came back to temp. (They said if it was holding temp they would charge me for a service call--the unit was BRAND NEWI) finally got them to come out because I said it was not holding temperature. The technician took out the original board--which by the way had clearly markde on it that it had failed at least once in the pre-ship test phase, and replaced it with a DIFFERENT part number. Why, my guess that the original computer had too many failures.

Fortunately we have an extended warranyt--which we got because of the ICEMAKER, not the temp control. Give me back my old Kenmore fridge! If anything looks amiss again, I am insisting that they come out and replace the board. My guess is that the boards are throw away items that they don't test for what what wrong. (either too costly or they don't know what they are doing)

SOURCE: G.E. Side by side model quit dispensing water

It is possible the water line inside the freezer door froze . Remove the bottom kick plate and follow the white tubing about 6" to a coupling . Push in on the white ring and at the same time , pullout on the tubing . Push the water dispensor , and if water comes out of the hose going under the fridge , this means the line is frozen in the door . If no water comes out , it means the water tank at the bottom of the fridge section (behind crispers ) is probably frozen . A hair dryer should work on the tank , but , a different procedure will be needed to thaw the door . Come back if door is frozen for the procedure .

Frozen water on bottom of top freezer


The drain behind the panel at the rear of your freezer is most likely plugged with ice. The easy fix would be to transplant your freezer goods to another freezer, unplug the fridge and leave the freezer door open overnight.

Freezer is frozen fridge is warm


Your model is most likely the Profile Artica style. Most times the defrost heater is burned out behind the rear of the freezer wall. Manually defrost and look at the defrost heater to see if burned out. That model possibly has the glass covered defrost heater and will be easy to spot if burned out because the element is inside a glass tube, If you replace the defrost heater also replace the defrost thermostat, Please send me your model number located near floor of the fresh food compartment door seal and kick plate, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a PSS26 ge profile fridge and it quit making ice


The icemaker is bad . You have an electronic icemaker and the internal boards cannot take the freezing and the heat (freezing moisture) . Just replace the icemaker .

if you can hear a fan blowing in the freezer that is probably not the problem. If it is at all possible could you clear out the fridge overnight. If so, do so, unplug refrigerator with doors open overnight and plug it in in the morning. If it returns to cooling you probably have a defrost problem, but you at least have a couple days to fix it.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board 
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
