SOURCE: control panel blinking
my heater did the same, very frustrating. i have solved this problem. i took off the plastic cover to expose the electronic circuit board and noticed that there was a white residue on the board. I wiped this clean with rubbing alcohol and put everything back. as of 3 weeks ago i have used the heater frequently as normal and not had any problems. chazdee

I had a very similar problem with our GE refrigerator. The main control board looked to be the culprit. I took out the board and did a visual inspection. Upon inspection I discovered that the (2) 470 micro farad capacitors were blown. I checked the power diode near these and it was still ok. I went to Radio Shack and picked up two 470 micro farad - 35V capacitors for and grand total of $2.60 and resoldered them myself. The refrigerator has been running great since. If you want to know more details email me and I will be happy to let you know what I know. I didn't want to pay $100 for a GE guy to replace a board either!

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it.
Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it
to run. There is a flap you adjust with
the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust
the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
The chill drawers are probably staying cold because there is a vent to the freezer in the wall for the cold air to seep through.
