GE Profile Arctica Side-by-Side Refrig PSC23MGMB IS WAY TOO COLD!

We recently purchased a condo with a GE Profile "Arctica" (white) side-by-side refrigerator, model # PSC23MGMB WW. The previous owner's warranty documents show registration in February, 2002.

The refrigerator side (right side) freezes milk, vegetables, etc. The manufacturer's "suggested settings" are 5 / 5 (freezer side / refrigerator side), with 9 being coldest, and 1 being least cold.

We have tried setting the refrigerator setting down to 1, and waiting a day to see if it had any effect. This did provide a MINOR increase in temperature, but things like milk and vegetables still freeze (just not as badly as when refrig is set to 5).

Has anyone had a similar problem with this model? If so, please tell us what you did to solve the problem.

Thank you.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond/comment. Unfortunately, the seal seems pliant, intact, un-cracked/broken, and the door closes well, so I'll have to try something else.

    Thanks again.

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.

Close the door more slowly.
What is happening is the air pressure does not equalize on a fast close causing the excess air to travel through least resistance.

GE Profile Arctica model # PSS25NGMD - can't control temperature


Check the little damper door next the water filter at top inside the unit. You will have to remove the covers to get it. The little plastic ends will break off and then you can not control the temperture it act like a freezer. Hope this helps Also you can get this part online.

Power is on but no control indicators are visible and the letters HRS are flashing inside one of the indicators inside the door. The refrigerator model is a pss26ng GE Profile Arctica


Unplug this refrig from the wall, let sit for one hour, then plug back in, if it starts then you may have a start device on compressor that is bad, more than likely it won't, normally the HRS means there is a "main board" problem. Main board is located on rear of refrig.

Constant clicking noise with no cold air.


You have a bad main control board . This is located behind the refrig , behind an 8" X 10 " panel . Either the compressor module , or fan module , is burnt out . Replace this electronic board , and I'm sure the problem will be solved .

Sadly i would say the board is malfunctioning and needs replacement. There is nothing in the fridge/ freezer that if malfunctions can cause that.

There's a motorized flap between the freezer and the fridge.  It's stuck.  Major design flaw.  Go to applianceguru.com and get details on the fix.
