Generally, I'd suspect the defrost timer being stuck or broken.

SOURCE: ge side by side ref.

no,its more than likely the defrost heater located just under the coil thats freezing up,check this heater for continuity,if its o.k. then test the defrost thermostat thats clipped onto the same coil near the top of the coil,note,the defrost thermostat needs to be below 15 degrees to check good as its a thermal switch,then if still problems then check the main board in the back of the unit behind a panel this is where the defrost circuit gets its power,but i will likely say its the heater thats open because i replace about 5 per week with the same issue as yours

The refridgerator is not getting cold


sometimes when the air flow is restricted cold air migrates back into the bottom of the fresh food side and could freeze the dispenser resevoir which is behind the crisper drawers. Also, just defrosting the freezer is only treating the symptom. Something malfunctione to allow the frost to build up. Either the heater, defrost limiter or defrost timer.

Fridge not cooling


In the freezer compartment on the back wall there is a panel , behind that panel is the evaporator coil and return air ducts that go up to the fridge.
these ducts freeze up, thus not allowing the cold air to circulate to the refridgerator. You can unplug the unit overnight and let it defrost on its own, or you can help it using a blowdryer for a couple of hours. just lay the blowdryer in the freezer area with the doors open and let it defrost.be sure to place an old towel on the bottom to catch the water.

Refridgerator is only cold on the bottom. Fridge is a side by side and both sides are doing the same thing. Top shelves are not cold or freezing, but the bottom ones are. What is causing this?


Good day,
The common reason for this is the fan motor behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment is not running.
With the machine on and running, open the freezer door. You should hear the fan running.
If not the motor can be accessed by removing the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Replacement is a nuts and bolts operation.

GE Profile refrigerator temperature problem


refrigerators have 2 coils. the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. one is on the bottom of the fridg and one is on the back or inside behind a false panel. these coils must be kept clean or if the condensing coil cannot reject the heat absorbed by the evaporator, the box temp will stay high and if the evap coil cant absorb heat the box temp stays low running the risk of freezing

it could be an air flow problem. Pull the unit out, unplug it. Clean out any dust, dirt, or anything else you see in there. Also when you push it back in make sure you have a few inches clearance behind and to each side of unit . Good Luck.
