Question about Refrigerators
The freezer keeps fluctuating temperatures. It's supposed to be set at 0 but it goes as high as 24 degrees for no reason. The fridge will do the same thing just not quite as much. I can't use the freezer at all due to this. Any ideas what's going on?
Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.

0 = off, 1 = cool, 2 = cooler, ..... 7 = coldest. 0 - 7 Nothing to do with the degree the fridge is set to.

Since it's less than a year old it should have a pretty good service warranty. A relay or confusion on the mother board is most likely the problem. I could send information to put it into self diagnostics but I think you may come out better by calling your nearest GE authorized service center. If you hear the compressor clicking and or no movement of air below the unit unplug it just to prevent any further damage.Your refrigerator is too new for me to tell you how to work on it is what I am trying to say, Thanks Sea Breeze

Your problem could stem from an issue with the defrost timer, the compressor or its attachments (e.g.: relay, capacitor, etc.), or the freezer/evaporator fan motor. Contact an appliance service company.
