A common problem for your model is the motherboard has possibly failed, compressor start relay and a few other symptoms. Can you pull the refrigerator away from wall, unplug power and remove lower cover that covers the compressor?

Unplug the unit and pull it out from the wall. Take the relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, it is bad and needs to be replaced. Here is the part to order.
Keep me posted.

SOURCE: Does not cool. Compressor is running, fans are

Hi, Look in the freezer section and see if there is frost building up on the rear inside panel. If the is frost, on of three parts are bad in the automatic defrost.
If there is no frost, the compressor might be weak and not pumping the coolant as strong as it should.
Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer sevtion and see if the evaporator is frosting at all.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further with this issue.

SOURCE: GE profile refrigerator line freezes, fan blows but no cold air?

OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Freezer won't get cold

Defrost the unit completely.  There may be ice blockage preventing proper cooling.  You may also be low on gas.  With the unit off for an hour, restart while observing the largest pipe on the compressor.  It should frost and then after about 15 minutes either dry out, form ice or water on it.  If it is still frosted, it will need a recharge.

Not staying cool


sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

Fridge not freezing meats


I was writing a big note here before then hit the wrong button, it was just a bunch of jargon anyway. Yes it is the condenser fan motor causing your problems. Doesn't cool the refrigerant properly than nothing works. I would change the fan before it causes any damage to the compressor.

It blows cold air for 5 min. and the it blows cool air for 15 min. the room warms up . Why does it stops blowing cold air continuasly???? The thermostat was disconectet on purpose so it coul clow cold air...


See if you can reposition the thermister on the facing of the evaporator coils. That could be it or the thermister might be bad. They don't use copper/mercury sensing bulbs these days. They use these cheap thermisters.

the compressor has a capacitor that helps to start the compressor if the compressor does not reach the speed required to jump from the start coil to te continum work in about 10 sec the termic protector disconect the compressor for about 5 minutes but the blower or fan does work just blowing the air and that is not cold
