Fluctuation of temperature GE Profile


g.e has mother boards or computer board in them located on the back outside wall,your board is on the top left,part number wr55x10942,everything on your machine runs through that board,also look at the evaporator coil where the thermostat is,there's a sensor on the top of the coil,it looks like a white bullet,if there's a black ring around it where the wires connect to it you also have to change that too.wr55x10025.go here and look at picture,if your board doesn't have all the relays like on this board then you don't have the updated board
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Main-Control-Board/WR55X10942/1531075the new board has all 7 relays and is the newest board.hope this helps and good luck with it.

Hi, I'm Mark.
Check the position of the two controls at the top of the unit inside the fresh food compartment. SET BOTH controls to the 12 o'clock position. Wait about a hour, then check temperatures. Then wait another hour and check temperatures again. Record the values on a piece of paper. When you do check fridge temperatures, do so quickly as the compartments become warm just a few seconds after the doors are opened. Please let me know what happens to the fresh food readings.
Thanks, Best Regards,
Mark

Temperature is reads 73 on freezer and 34 on refrigerator But... inside all are warm Help


It may be vice versa.
You need to check and make sure that the freezer section is 34 degree. The refrigerator compartment depends on the freezer in order to maintain a temperature suitable for food storage. If it is the case, you defrost heater and thermostat may be defective.

This is by design. It should be warm. This is where the heat exchanger is located to save space.

No worries.... right now it is being over-worked until it reaches operating temp.

Not keeping cold temperature and can smell plastic from heat


Sounds like the condenser fan motor is either jammed or has failed. if you wil pull the refrig from the wall and remove the lower compartment cover you will see the fan I'm reffering to as well as the condenser coil and compressor. if the fan has failed you can put a house fan blowing into this compartment to keep the unit operational until you can get it repaired. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

GE Fridge: PSS26SGPA SS Model


CallMe-

Your "freezer" and "refridgerator" temps are not jumping back to 14 and 44 respectively. When you change temps, they both wait 3-5 seconds before they revert back to a temp reading, not a temp setting.

Does your "freezer" make any loud or thumping noises? If not, do you hear a quiet whisper when both compartment doors are closed?

Solutions could be :
1. Servicing the coolant (might have a small leak)
2. Checking the seal on your freezer compartment (black rubber that meets the metal frame)
3. Your internal cooling fan is not operating and needs replacing (but I think your temps would be significantly higher).

Best of luck.
