There are a number of things causing this issue. First, make sure the evap fan motor is running. If that's ok then we either have a defrost issue (very common) or the damper may not be opening for some reason. Many things can cause the unit not to go into defrost.Unplug the unit then at the board unplug main connector w the 3 larger connections. put a jumper between the Line and defrost and plug unit back in (don't plug connector in) if heater comes on then it's a bad board. If heater does not come on check heater, defrost tstat or def thermistor(it's a white and right on top of evap)

Very Common problem with this mode of fridge. Spoke to a number of appliance repair outfits and all said to replace the Com board. Com board located on the back of the fridge. (lower right side behind panel) $175 Can. for the board. Part # WR55X10552 No need for service call. Easy to replace.

    Before you do that check the defrost heater. I have replaces mine twice in the last 10 years. Far cheaper than the motherboard and is usually the culprit

My freezor work good but the fridge does not cool

There is ice blocking the passage which allows cold air from the freezer to pass into the refrigerator compartment. Turn the refrigerator off. Find where the cold air passes into the refrigerator and remove/melt the ice. You may need to remove some panels to access this passage.

GE Profile side by side freezer not working at all. Fridge ok.

Is the fridge side working? If not try turning the defrost timer dial until it clicks. If it now goes you need to test the defrost circuit as there's still a fault but it'll go for 12 hours untill it trys to do another D'frost. If this doesn't work try bypassing the thermostat. cheers

Freezor barely freezing, fridge barely cooling

After the electricity came on what setting did you use? I would start out at 4 or 5.When a unit sits too long without running the coolant will settle to the bottom it can be hard on it because it is trying to push it threw the system.After it defrosts all the lines should be clear. From there it could be as simple as the fan in the freezer is slowing down or your compressor is on its way out. Also check the vent from the freezer to the fridge for blockage.

You need a qualified technician for the leak repair and recharging of refrigerant. All of the refrigerant in the system are gone, next time do not use sharp object when cleaning your fridge.
