SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: Digital display is blank in GE Profile fridge

Hi. Its either a bad motherboard or control board. I would check the control board for any obvious signs of damage to the board first. I've seen the control board go blank on the GE side by side and it turned out to be the motherboard. The motherboard is located behind a cover on the back of your refrigerator cabinet. You should have a new motherboard on hand at all times because they fail alot. Be sure to put a surge protector on your refrigerator. Good Luck, Mack

Ge profile oven lock button won't go off

  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.


  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.

    I have a ge profile side by side refrigerator model number psc25psta. The freeze is not getting cold. How do I reset the temperature.

    Here is a link to the main GE Support page for your refridgerator:

    And here is a link to the Online User's Manual with the operating instruction for it:

    See page 5 of the User Manual for detailed instructions on how to adjust the fridge and freezer temperatures. It reads as follows in the manual:

    To change the temperature, press and release
    the WARMER or COLDER button. SET will illuminate in
    the display, as well as the set temperature. To change
    the temperature, tap either the WARMER or COLDER
    button (while SET is illuminated) until the desired
    temperature is displayed. Refrigerator temperatures
    can be adjusted between 34F and 47F and
    the freezer temperatures can be adjusted
    between 6F and +8F.

    Once the desired temperature has been set,
    the temperature display will clear after 10 seconds.
    To display the temperature, the DISPLAY TEMP button
    may be tapped.
    Several adjustments may be required. Each time you
    adjust controls, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to
    reach the temperature you have set.

    Good luck and please comment back here and RATE 4 Thumbs Up if this was at all helpful.

    Just click on the highlighted links with your mouse in order to access the information described.

    If the link does not open properly, you may need to download a PDF Reader program for your computer. The best reader can be downloaded free at where you just click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on the right hand side of the page and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Just comment back here if you require any further assistance, I will be pleased to assist you in any way I can.

    My 7 year old GE Profile Side by Side will not get

    Self Diagnostics
    To enter Self Diagnostic mode, both temperature control panel displays must be illuminated. A display
    can be illuminated by pressing an adjacent temperature adjustment button. When both displays are
    illuminated, set the freezer and refrigerator temperature settings to 5. Simultaneously press and hold all
    4 temperature adjustment buttons for approximately 3 seconds. A flashing 0 in the refrigerator and
    freezer displays will indicate that the refrigerator is in Self Diagnostic mode.

    For temperature control panels with single-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button
    will increment the numbers up and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the
    numbers down. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the
    freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in
    the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test.
    Press the HOLD button for 3 seconds to begin the test.
    For temperature control panels with 3-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will
    increment the numbers down and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the
    numbers up. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the
    freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test
    code. Press any button other than a temperature adjust button to begin the test.
    When testing has been completed, do one of the following things:
    • Enter code 1 5 to completely reset the system.
    • Enter code 1 6 to exit diagnostic mode. GSS manual

    GE Profile refrigerator temperature problem

    refrigerators have 2 coils. the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. one is on the bottom of the fridg and one is on the back or inside behind a false panel. these coils must be kept clean or if the condensing coil cannot reject the heat absorbed by the evaporator, the box temp will stay high and if the evap coil cant absorb heat the box temp stays low running the risk of freezing

    GE profile fridge

    Are numbers being displayed at all? If you want to confirm whether they are wrong or not, try putting a thermometer inside the fridge for about 10 minutes and check it against the temperature displayed. If it's wrong then it's probably the temperature sensor and would need to be replaced.

    I suppose it's a long shot but could it be displaying 18 and feels more like 65? (Celcius vs. Farenheit)
