Question about Refrigerators

My ge profile pfs22sbsss model french door freezer drawer was left open overnight and now won't get cold. Any ideas?

The freezer will only get to about 9 deg. and the fridge is at like 60 deg. after drawer was left open overnight. The compressor seems to be running but not getting cold.

SOURCE: GE Profile French Door Bottom Freezer not cooling

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.

SOURCE: GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

SOURCE: I have a GE profile refrigerator. Model# is

You need to "reboot" the computer--unplug, count to 30, replug. Wait about 15 moinutes to see if it comes back. Our brand new one did not come up to temp until after we did that several times. Tunrs out 1 week later we had a catastrophic failure of the temp mechanism--it read properly but everything was warm. (the door was not left open) Ruined some very expensive food (steak, lobster) we were getting ready to entertain.

When we re-booted several times it got back to temp. GE refused to send someone out because eventually, the computer got "unstupid" and came back to temp. (They said if it was holding temp they would charge me for a service call--the unit was BRAND NEWI) finally got them to come out because I said it was not holding temperature. The technician took out the original board--which by the way had clearly markde on it that it had failed at least once in the pre-ship test phase, and replaced it with a DIFFERENT part number. Why, my guess that the original computer had too many failures.

Fortunately we have an extended warranyt--which we got because of the ICEMAKER, not the temp control. Give me back my old Kenmore fridge! If anything looks amiss again, I am insisting that they come out and replace the board. My guess is that the boards are throw away items that they don't test for what what wrong. (either too costly or they don't know what they are doing)

SOURCE: GE Profile french door refrig not cooling but freezer is cold

Look into rear of freezer and see if a layer of frost is building on rear panel. If yes you will need unplug and manually defrost with a hair dryer. That will help speed things up. You will also need the correct model number to get the correct parts. The odds are the defrost heater is defective. Because cold air is heavier than warm it tends to settle to bottom freezer making it appear OK. If there is no frost in freezer rear wall then we would look for the air supply damper to be closed between compartments. Look and see what you are going to need do and I will look up the parts assuming your model is a PFSF5NJXBB I will return soon, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: freezer works fine, fridge cool not cold.

if the freezer is freezing and the fan working in the freezer and the fan at the compressor is working and you have no frost build up on the back wall of the freezer caused from a defrost problem -then turn your controls back to the middle. one of the controls is a thermostat control and the other control is merely an air diverter from the freezer to the refrigerator. if you close this diverter down too much (by putting it on 9)it will leave most of the air in the freezer.

bottom line if the freezer is working properly and freezing good all the time then the refrigerator should be ok as well unless you have diverted most air to the freezer. allow 24 hours after you have changed the settings.

you can feel air blowing in the back of the refrigerator at the top next to the freezer and can adjust the diverter control and feel the difference it makes. most of the time the control you use is labeled freezer and if you put both controls on 9 then your freezer will be the coldest but the refrigerator won't get as much air. the thermostat control can be left at 5 or higher (this is the control that turns the refrigerator off) but leave the other control at 5

if this doesn't work you have probably got problems with your freezer also and may not know it yet.

Water leaking into bottom of refrigerator section

Make sure you dry everything in the freezer when you have the door open and remove ice. It won't be a leak it will simply be the warm air inside the freezer that has turned into condensation. Double check the seal around the door to see if it curled up as that could be letting warm in and cold out giving same results.

GE French Door 22 cu ft (PFSW2MIXSS). Loud buzzing from behind the freezer. Ceased cooling.

The model number you post appears to be incorrect.
The buzzing was from the evaporator fan blade hitting on some ice build up. Getting to it on a bottom freezer refrig is a bit of a pain in the back side. If your model has a pull out freezer drawer, that has to be removed, the icemaker removed, one side of the drawer supports from the freezer wall, all to allow you to remove the back wall of the freezer to get to the fan. You may be able to just thaw out the fan and surrounding area then which will get your refrig cooling again, if the ice was just around the fan area. On the pain in the but repair scale of 1 - 10, this one rates at least a 7.

GE Arctica Profile getting too cold, temp set to 37 actual temp is 25-35

Wow, so you dropped some money into it, eh? I would take a look at the damper door asslb(DIFFUSER). located at the very top left of your refrigerator section in back. It has a motorized door that opens and close's and it may be stuck open. More than likely it is broken and needs to be replaced. GOODLUCK!!!!

FYI: All your cold air in your refrigerator comes from your freezer!

Controls not working in GE Bottom w/french doors.

I have the exact same problem with mine.  I was away for 3 months, left it running. Came back and no display.  Unplugged it & restarted it and it worked for a little while and went out again. 

         Did you ever get an answer?             I'm wondering about corrosion on the door switch from lack of use, as the display is only supposed to be on when a door is open.  Yours may have been a loose connector from moving it???
