Re: Ge Profile refrigerator

Yes your refrig is not defrosting automatically. You can start by removing the shelves in the freezer than removing the rear panel (the panel that is frosted half way). Use hair dryer to defrost ice from coil. This will restore your refrig temporarily. Your refrig has a pretty advance defrost system and is not easy to test. If you have a meter (volt-ohmmeter) i can help with diagnosis.

GE fridge not cooling. freezer working ok. compressor fan not working

This is an odd thing to hear. Normally when the condensor fan (}compressor fan) Isn't running the freezer is the one who's temperature rises and the fridge stays about the same. I would strongly suggest looking at the main control board, just for the simple fact that 9 out of 10 times thats the root of the problem

GE profile refrigerator model # PDS22SCRRS not cooling. I looked in the back and condensor fan is not working. Should I assume that it needs a new motor or is it possibly the motherboard which I have read...

Check to see if you have 110 volts at the motor with the compressor running. If you do then your motor is bad - replace it. Also make sure something has not gotten in the fan to keep it from working. The fan must run to keep the compressor cool and from over heating. Be sure to put the back of the refrigerator back on when you are through.

I have a ge gss22kgpacc side by side, the freezer is working, lights, etc. all working, but the refrigeratoe side is not working, any insight? thanks, mike

on most units they have two controls refrigerator control is electric t-stat that runs compressor freezer control think of it as a door colder freezer door is barely open warmer freezer door all the way open all cooling coils are in the freezer and a fan moves the air to refrigerater side possible problem fan not running
door freezer control all the way closed
light switch broken light staying on door gasket not sealing tight find door switch press verify light shuts off and fan starts
look for torn or damaged door gasket can look from outside with light and see if gasket contacts case on all four sides
freezer is cold enough so compressor is ok hope this helps good luck ron

Hello my GE profile is making a clicking sound. and is not cooling

That id the compressor external overload. You need to unplug and let the compressor cool. It's possible a defective start relay, start capacitor and the external overload needs replaced. We may also need to look at a few other things, But for now unplug the refrigerator to prevent damage to the compressor. Sea Breeze

GE Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling

Loss of coldness is common with compressor related problems....relay and overload(simple fix), loss/leak of refridgerant(need a cert. tech). need to check the compressor and see if its this by pulling the unit out and removing the back panel, place your hand on the compressor and see if it feels like its running....if not probably just a relay, if it is running, could be a more serious problem dealing with sealed system.
