Unplug the refrigerator . Remove the motherboard cover . Remove the blue plug with large wires from the motherboard . Looking at the plug , you'll see wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Using a short piece of wire with both ends striped , insert the ends into wire2 and wire3 . Plug refrig back in . Look in the freezer at the bottom of the rear wall , for a red glow . May take several min . If no red glow , replace the defrost heater AND the defrost thermostat (bimetal ) . If red glow , bad control board .
The defrost heater and bimetal , are behind the rear lower panel inside the freezer section . The heater is at the bottom of the coils , and the bimetal is clipped on at the top of the coils ( blue and pink wire ) .

simple thing first make sure the door is sealing properly, unlikely to be this.

push the back wall of fridge with your hand, it should be solid.
if it is spongey it means the insulation has broken down and you need a new fridge

if not the back wall more than likely a blockage in the system, you will need a pot man out to check the system.

if this is the case and your fridge is over 5 years old dont waste money on repairing, buy a new fridge. if under 5 years def contact indesit company

GE fridge problem


Sounds to me like your man did not know much about the product. You will need a test meter to diagnose this problem. Call a GE authorized servicer as I assume you are not repairing this yourself. Please leave feedback.

Center Column is getting Hot


The light for the filter is not a problem. The thing to check is that the fan in the back is running. It should run any time the compressor is running to cool the compressor. If it is, then you need to pull the front grille or toe kick off and look under the fridge. Is there a lot of dust and dirt blocking the airflow? If so, vacuum it out. If not, pull the fridge out and check behind it. Is there a grate clogged up with dust? The reason the divider gets hot is because there is a freon line running through that part of the fridge to keep moisture from forming around the door seals. If the fridge is not cooling properly (dead fan motor or dirt blocked airflow) then the freon in this line gets very hot and all the pressures in the system rise, eventually leading to the fridge not cooling. Good Luck !
