Ge profile Refridge...

The lights are on, and you can hear a fan running...but all the food in the freezer is thawed out. and the fridge is warming.  When I try to move the temp gauge (digital) i can hear it beeping but i cannot see if its making the temp warmer or colder.

I went through troubleshooting steps on the Internet and found my defrost timer was not working properly. It was located behind the plastic panel which is where your plastic temperature knobs are. There is a slot all the way to the right of the temperature knobs once you lift the plastic panel, and when you turn it clockwise it will eventually click and my refrigerator started cooling.

Check the cooling coils, and very likely they are full of dust preventing cooling.
I have an attachment I put on my vacuum cleaner to clean out these coils at least once per year.

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise

The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Check if fan in freezer is running as well as fan by the compressor and the compressor itself. Check for any frost buildup on evaporator cover in freezer.

Sorry to hear about your problem.

Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

Ge Profile fridge Model #PSC25MSTASS Wacky temps in Freezer for several weeks, so much so that ice will not stay frozen, so we just shut the ice maker off. Most of the other foods would stay frozen,...

Pull the refrig out from the wall , and remove the rear panel . Touch the compressor and feel if its hot or running . If the compressor is cool , then the main control board is bad ( since the compressor isn't running ) . If you can solder , you can repair the board (another paragraph ) . If the compressor is warm , then you could have a thermistor or 2 bad . This would have to be checked by a technician , unless you know how to get into the diagnostics procedure . Also , see if the compressor cooling fan is working and the black squirl cage is clean of dust .

brookid, first you want to start with the basics; door seals are good, light turning off with door closed, dispensor duct door closing all the way, condensor coils cleaned, evaporator fan and condensor fan are running. If you are satisfied that there are no problems here then you want to see if you have a heavy frost build-up on the back of the freezer panel. If you do, you have a defrost issue that usually involves the defrost heaters, main board or freezer thermistor. Tests will have to be made on the main board to determine these. If you don't have a frost build up, you need to check the airflow vents from the freezer to the refer compartment. I will attach a photo of a refrigerator with a defrost problem. back.
