GE Arctica Side by Side Temperature Fluctuations

I've got a GE Arctica Side by Side Fridge/Freezer (Model# PSC23NSTE SS) that seems to suffer from odd temperature fluctuations. The temperature readout on the freezer side says "0" but when I opened the door I noticed the ice in the ice maker storage tray was melting (drips of water were coming from the rear of the tray closest to the back wall and there's a small frozen water fall in the back), and the fridge side has a temperature reading of 43 (37 is the normal setting) and when checking with a thermometer it's actually 47 degrees. This is the second time in the last month and a half that I've found the fridge in this condition. What's wrong with this?

The contol board on the back of the unit may have a low voltage problem not sending power to the dispensor or display lights properly. Is it still making ice just not dipensing? That's been the most common problem I've seen on these units.

SOURCE: Food in the freezer on my side-by-side GE Profile

It's hard to understand how the refrigerator compartment would be okay, but the freezer is not. The evaporator coils are normally behind the freezer. The cooled air is moved from here to the freezer and refrigerator by the evaporator fan. Is this the fan you are saying is going on and off? Or the compressor fan underneath the refrigerator.

The necessary conditions for proper cooling are:
1. Compressor is running; 2. Compressor fan is running; and 3. Evaporator fan is running.

Veg and fruits freeze up.. Why? and what should temps be for frig and freezer?


We had this problem almost 4 yrs ago. It was the damper assembly which is a common problem w/ GEs. A damper is a door flap that opens and closes between the fridge and freezer that allows cold air into the fridge to regulate the temperature. Eventually, it breaks, allowing in too much cold air into the fridge, thus making both sides a freezer! Fixya's link that helped me is this one, which is very helpful: http://fixitnow.com/wp/2007/12/06/ge-side-by-side-refrigerator-freezing-the-beer/. You also might need to enter a diagnostic code when you replace it. Check this out also:
http://fixitnow.com/wp/2009/10/02/activating-self-diagnostic-mode-in-a-ge-arctica-refrigerator/. Don't let the description of the fridge as a GE Arctica mislead you. These are different models, but internally are the same components.

Ge Profile Arctica Fridge--Can I salvage it, or do I run away?


It will be worth the repairs that come up. Don't replace board till it quits and you will know when it does. The new upgraded boards are much better now with extra protection for the relays.

GE Profile Fridge Model No. PSC25MSWA SS not making ice


Check to see if there is any obstruction (object of any kind) in the ice cube mold area. If nothing found, you will have to replace the icemaker, as individual repair parts are not available.
