Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Temp fluctuates in ge profile refrigerator and freezer

The temp fluctuates in the freezer and refrigerator. Gets as warm as 48 degrees in refrigerator and 18 degrees in freezer. Twice the small screens that display temp have gone blank and later show temp again. Twice the compressor has made a sound or sounds as if it is trying to start but cannot. When it finally does start it takes almost 5 hours to reach the set temp again . Ice cream gets very soft and developes ice crystals and all ice cubes are stuck together.

Mine is doing the same, but because we were getting frustrated with the interminted noise and motor we kept switching on and off until we realised the frig did not work at all. The key to our problem was, let the frig do its own thing as we realised it was auto defrosting. After 3 days of meddling with this thing, we thought we killed it. Just leaving it on and forgetting about it, it righted itself, and walla it has not missed a beat since. We even blew up another frig in the mean time because of the predicament we thought we were in with all the produce. Good luck and just let the frig do its own thing.

How do I go about 'cleaning the coils' on a GE profile model - freezer is having trouble holding 0 F and I was told this would help. thanks


It is not necessary to clean the evaporator coil.
The condenser coil underneath may need cleaning.
Use a long handle bottle brush and a vacuum cleaner.
Your refrigerator freezer temp will fluctuate from minus 5 degrees to plus 18 degrees on a regular basis.
It will not be a steady temp.

Freezer temperature fluctuating way up and down. 0 recommended. 11 degrees right now. 18 earlier. Food defrosting. Ice cream soft. GE Profile bottom drawer freezer. Only 3-4 years old.


Your problem could stem from an issue with the defrost timer, the compressor or its attachments (e.g.: relay, capacitor, etc.), or the freezer/evaporator fan motor. Contact an appliance service company.

Freezer is too cold (-14 degrees) and fridge is too warm (51 degrees). The freezer keeps gettting colder but the fridge part keeps getting warmer.


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 temp sensor for the freezer may be reading the warm air in the fridge so is not cutting the compressor off.

Greetings bkbkbt,

Many times this behavior is an early indicator that your unit either needs freon or might have a compressor issue. I would advise contacting a repair person before this problem gets worse.

Thank you,
