Question about GE Refrigerators
I have a GE Profile Arctica (model PSF26NGNA) that shows itself as running at 32 degrees in the refrigerator. Adjusting the temperature on the touch pad inside the front door does not adjust the temperature in the unit. I've used a thermometer and while it's not quite freezing liquids, it's still cold enough to freeze all my vegetables. Opening the back panel on the bottom, there is a "ridged" cylinder that has a fan on one end that was covered in dirt. I vacuumed that off thinking there might be an airflow issue however that hasn't made an impact on the temperature reading. Any suggestions?
You may want to check your damper assembly to see if the door is broken. If the door is broken it will air to migrate to the refrigerator compartment causing freezing issues. Also check to make sure that the damper door is not staying open. When you take the cover off with the door open the damper should close. If the damper is open then you need to replace the damper. Here is the damper to order.

it sounds as if the ice door is not closing properly. Check the little rubber door seal to see if it is sealing properly. If not try a hair dryer to soften it. Otherwise you have to buy a door kit.

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

refrigerators have 2 coils. the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. one is on the bottom of the fridg and one is on the back or inside behind a false panel. these coils must be kept clean or if the condensing coil cannot reject the heat absorbed by the evaporator, the box temp will stay high and if the evap coil cant absorb heat the box temp stays low running the risk of freezing

Tips for a great answer:
Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
