Did you have an electrical storm? If so, may have surged the circuit causing unit to shut down or perform erratically. Also could your refrigerator door have been partly open just a small crack causing the light to stay on and warm air to enter raising the temperature and braking the circuit breaker making the entire unit to shut down and you happened to notice this right after the unit shut down... I say right after because it is difficult to imagine a light bulb that is "out" being "very hot".

SOURCE: The refrigerator temperature keeps dropping

I had the same problem with my GE GSS25LGMB and after some googling I learned that the damper door might be broken. Indeed after I took off the damper assembly the door appeared to be broken at the hinge. This door has its own thermostat and controls the influx of cold air into the fridge which explains the frozen food. I am trying to glue the broken piece back on. See if it works. Othwersie you'll have to replace the entire damper assembly which costs about $91. (http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/cgi-bin/detail.cgi?item=WR49X10091&brand=GEH)

After power interruption we find the temp is sitting at 48 degrees fridge side and 19 degrees on the freezer side.


After about 24 hours your temps should be close to zero in freezer and about 37 in refrigerator. If not check position of thermostat control and turn clockwise for colder temps if necessary.

GE bottom freezer PF22missaww i came home from vacation and it was at 60 degrees , unplugged it for 10 minutes and plugged it back in , ran fine for a month , came home from work and the unit is warm again...


GE Profile bottom freezer erratic.

GE Profile Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator with Electronic controls with digital temperature readout (Should include Models PDS20MFS, PDS20SFS, PDS22MFS, PDS22SFS, PDS22MFS) May also apply to other models.

Diagnosis: Search of Internet yielded no definitive fix. It appeared to me that the some minor frost buildup might be symptomatic of unseen frost elsewhere. The electronic controls could possibly be messed up.

Fix: Not knowing whether it was frost or the electronic controls (or both), did the following:

1. Turned off the refrigerator. (It is not clear how to do that. Download the owner's manual for your model from the Internet. If it is like mine, the freezer and refrigerator APPEAR to have separate controls. In fact they are linked. To turn both freezer and refrigerator off, press the WARMER button on EITHER the refrigerator OR freezer until the display shows OFF for both the freezer and refrigerator.)

2. Unplugged the unit. Let it set for 18 hours with both doors open.

3. Plugged it in (which may have reset the electronic controls.)

4. Turned it on. To do so, I followed the instructions that said to press the COLDER button on either the refrigerator or freezer. Press the same COLDER button a second time and it should go to the factory presets of 0 degrees for the freezer and 37 degrees for the refrigerator.

5. Allowed the temperatures to stabilize for a week, after which temperature adjustments can be made.

Refrigerator is too cold (28 degrees)


this is likely one of the thermistors on the fresh food side has failed. They are usually located under a small cover inside the fridge. They should have a reading of 15.5k-16.5k ohms at 72 degrees. They are easy to check and replace. Here is a link that should help. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. http://appliancehelponline.com/sxsfreshthermistor.html

Temperature reverts back to old number which is 33 and is too cold for vegetables. How can I set it to 37 degrees


set the controls to off. then , unplug the unit from the wall for 15 minutes. this will allow the control processor to completely reset itself . after fifteen minutes, plug it in and reset your desired temperatures on your controller. if this does not work, I would suggest you consult the manufacturer or your owner's manual for more information on programming the temperature controller.

Power is on but nothing is working, not cold ,no water, no ice


Sounds like the unit needs a reset of sorts, Get your food into another refrigerator or ice chests and unplug the unit. let it stand open for several hours (just in case the vents are iced) and then plug it back in.
