Sounds like the defrost heater has failed or the adaptive defrost control. First you will need to check the defrost heater for continuity. If it has none that is the problem and replace it. If that checks good replace the adaptive defrost control board. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/defrostheatervideo.html

Ge profile bottom freezer model # PGSS5NFXA SS. Got up this morning and freezer thawing both fridge and freezer same


Not sure if the compressor is running. If not, you'll need a repair man. Since fans are running, most likely the thermistor. Also, if you haven't unplug from the wall, wait 10 seconds then plug back in; this may reset the control board. The link below may help. GE Refrigerator Not Cold Enough

GE bottom freezer PF22missaww i came home from vacation and it was at 60 degrees , unplugged it for 10 minutes and plugged it back in , ran fine for a month , came home from work and the unit is warm again...


GE Profile bottom freezer erratic.

GE Profile Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator with Electronic controls with digital temperature readout (Should include Models PDS20MFS, PDS20SFS, PDS22MFS, PDS22SFS, PDS22MFS) May also apply to other models.

Diagnosis: Search of Internet yielded no definitive fix. It appeared to me that the some minor frost buildup might be symptomatic of unseen frost elsewhere. The electronic controls could possibly be messed up.

Fix: Not knowing whether it was frost or the electronic controls (or both), did the following:

1. Turned off the refrigerator. (It is not clear how to do that. Download the owner's manual for your model from the Internet. If it is like mine, the freezer and refrigerator APPEAR to have separate controls. In fact they are linked. To turn both freezer and refrigerator off, press the WARMER button on EITHER the refrigerator OR freezer until the display shows OFF for both the freezer and refrigerator.)

2. Unplugged the unit. Let it set for 18 hours with both doors open.

3. Plugged it in (which may have reset the electronic controls.)

4. Turned it on. To do so, I followed the instructions that said to press the COLDER button on either the refrigerator or freezer. Press the same COLDER button a second time and it should go to the factory presets of 0 degrees for the freezer and 37 degrees for the refrigerator.

5. Allowed the temperatures to stabilize for a week, after which temperature adjustments can be made.

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 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.

Most likely your computer board got zapped. It's usually located on the back of the unit. Have you tried to reset the unit by leaving it unplugged for about 20 minutes?
