You will have to remove all shelves to access the problem areas. You will sometimes have to look carefully for the screws as they are camoflaged with paint, but i am sure they are there. Hope this helps

My GE Profile fridge side isn't staying cold, but the freezer is. There is no thick frost built up in back of the freezer side so I know it isn't the defrost heater. Could it be dirty coils underneath the...

There are a couple of things that can cause this. Thermistors, mainboard, fan and damper.
Start with the cheapest.
1. Check Thermistors - Pull J1 and check connector pins 1,2,3 and 4 to pin 5. They should beapproximately 15Kohms. In your case, the freezer thermistors (pin 3 and4 ) should be higher than the fresh food (pins 1 and 2).
2. Fan and Damper - Fresh food fan should be on and damper from freezer to fresh food should be open. If not, check that fans spin by hand and damper doesn't look damaged
3. At this point it is most likely the motherboard.

My freezer (ge artica) temperature goes up to 40%, then cools dow

The main problem with the Artica/Profile is that they have a main control board and a thermostat board inside the fresh food compartment. I have a repair manual and will send you a copy if you want but we are going to have to look at the control boards for burn marks. Let me know if you need me. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Help! My GE Profile Arctica runs 24 hours a day...sounds like a fan. It stops when either door is opened, then starts as soon as the door closes. The temps on either side are higher than what they are set...

It is normal operation for ARTICA fans to run continuosly except when the door is open. If the door remains open for 3 minutes the fans will run anyway.
The temperature will vary about 6 -8 degrees from the selected temperature. The temperature will increase during a defrost cycle.
I do not believe you have a problem.

Freezer fan is making whirring noise

Generally the freezer or (evaporator) fan is behind the panel in the freezer and in most freezers Side by side or standard type have a series of screws or along the outer edges of the freezer panel...some (like in side by side have a freezer fan and a fresh food fan....but not many generally cold air from the freezer is introduced into the fresh food compartment by way of a vent or port hole that aloows free flow of cold air into the fresh food area (but I digress) anyway take out the (several) up to 10 screws that hold the panel in place...if you don't do it soon the fan will go out and then the freezer compartment will iIce over and the fridge will cease to cool...once you pull the panel you will see it ...take it out and take to Johnstone supply, Marcones, or WW graingers for a good price on parts. If you have them where you live.
I hope this helped....If so please rate me. thanks ...the Fang

Problem with fresh food side of my refrigerator freezer

The bulbs dim glow is a worry, sounds like not enough voltage is getting there. If you are comfortable with a multimeter, check what the voltage is at the bulb socket. If you have a low voltage issue due to say the transformer not working properly then the fan will also have low voltage (or no voltage). No power, no fan, no cooling. I'd suspect there are voltage issues with that transformer, especially since it's a 240 VAC model. A transformer typically steps down the 240 volts to 120 volts for light bulbs and maybe even the fans (or the whole refer). The repair man may be correct in that the transformer is built in to a circuit board but it COULD be a stand alone transformer.
