    Replace the control board. Get in touch with GE. You may qualify for a free replacement. Their was a recall: Call GE customer relations at 800-386-1215 and go through the various menus until you get to a representative. Have your model and serial number ready. Thanks.

Hello,

It's either the start device on the compressor or you have a bad compressor. You'll have to pull it away from the wall and take the bottom back panel off to check the compressor. It will likely be real hot to the touch from what you described happening. If there is a little white colored box on the left side take that off and remove the wires, etc. and shake it... if it rattles and debris falls out then that's the problem. It's fairly common and they make a kit to replace it with a better designed part that's real easy to install yourself. If your compressor has a label on it with a blue indian head symbol, then you're out of luck as that brand pretty much sucks and is destroyed by heat. It would mean a new compressor and then you'd be lucky if the new one even worked from the factory.

Take care.

GE pss25ngnacc____refrigrato is to cold can't control tem


start by putting freezer control on half way on the numers. lets say it goes to ten set on five, do the same on refrig side . let run for 24 hrs. so it can stabalize. if it is ok in freezer and things are frozen and too cold in fridge side turn the refrig side to one smaller number. check again in 24 hrs. don't keep opening the door so that it can stabalize. if that doesnt work then it could be the cold control not senseing the temp of the refrig.

Power is on but no control indicators are visible and the letters HRS are flashing inside one of the indicators inside the door. The refrigerator model is a pss26ng GE Profile Arctica


Unplug this refrig from the wall, let sit for one hour, then plug back in, if it starts then you may have a start device on compressor that is bad, more than likely it won't, normally the HRS means there is a "main board" problem. Main board is located on rear of refrig.

GE Arctica intermittant clicking sound, panel flashes "hrs"


It sounds like the main control board is going bad . This controls every part on the fridge , except for the light bulbs . It's located on the back of the refrig , behind an 8" X 10" panel , with about 11 screws , holding the panel on . Part number WR55X10656 .

GE side by side fridge not cooling, can't adjust temp control


Most likely it's not defrosting, many GE fridges need new defrost heaters every couple of years.

Confused /


Ok the freezer section works the refrig section think of the refrigerator as a large cooler with an inlet and outlet hole cold air is blown into the refrig from the freezer via the fan motor in the freezer the really cold air comes in the top of the refrig and drops to the bottom of the refrig then it is sucked back into the freezer thru a vent hole in the bottom of the refrigerator ..GOT IT?? Now when a unit has a defrost problem there is an ice or frost build up in the freezer on the coil (bad heater,bad bi metal, bad timer can cause this) the ice builds and builds to the point where it blocks the air flow across the coil hence the air can not get to the refrigerator section making it warmer but the freezer section will work ok .. I hope this makes sense...Hint : A sign of this is a lg frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
