The GE Profile is a complex but efficient refrigerator. We will need to check a few things like the evaporator, defrost element, defrost thermostat and the mother board. Let me know if you want me to go through this with you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

    If your model is correct above your post a TFX27PRBBWW then your are lucky to have a defrost thermostat, not a control board. Inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel there is as defrost timer. I need you to put a screw driver through a the small opening and turn the timer slowly clockwise until the compressor stops. That should be your defrost cycle. Leave the refrigerator like that for up to 30 minutes. The refrigerator should restart after that time. After stopping the compressor open the freezer compartment and listen or crackling or sizzle of water dropping onto the defrost heater. I will try to place an illustration of the control panel here. Not sure you can see it in the photo here but the number is 257 in the right top corner of photo. The part number is WR9X489

    You can visit my site and enter the model or part number in the model and parts search feature.

    When you check these things and you tell me the results. As if the timer is OK we may need to remove the rear panel again to check the defrost element and examine the defrost thermostat. Let me know how things go. Thanks, Sea Breeze

    Yours does have the board on the back. Enter model GSS22JEPHWW into the search feature on my site. When you get to the page on left of screen is a picture of your refrigerator back. Last photo in list on left of screen click that photo. You can also see a picture of that board on my site, just scroll down. The part number for that board is WR55X10656 I want you to unplug refrigerator and remove the panel and inspect both sides of board. That board is the complete brain for your refrigerator. It does everything. Look on your board for burn marks or loose solder connections. Also look for relays that appear to have been hot and plastic sunk in. Then we will go from there. Sea Breeze

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all

If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

Refrigerator compartment cools correctly for a few days then no longer receives cold air from freezer. The freezer continues to operate and gets much colder than it should.

does your fan blow? freezers have a fan that pushes cold air to the fridge side if fan is bad freezer will run extremely cold and fridge won't cool down and since frige won't cool down thermostat in fridge doesn't tell compressor to stop

You should hear a fan running inside the freezer. It also blows cold air into the refrigerator side.
