Profile Artica Freezer is warming up to 32 degrees
My fridge is 2 years old exactly. The freezer has been warming up to 32 degrees then, it will go back down after a little time has passed. This keeps happening. What part do you suggest needs to be changed out? The lower part of the fridge is keeping temperature, so I don't believe it is the thermostat. Thanks

Re: Profile Artica Freezer is warming up to 32 degrees
There are 2 dials in a refrigerator. One is the thermostat the other is the air damper between the freezer and the refrigerator section. make sure your air damper is open about 1/2 way. If air does not get from the freezer to the refrigerator the thermostat might not be reading a proper temp. If you open the damper to much then you can start freezing food in the refrigerator. Some refrigerators have a opening back to the freezer down behind or beside the chrispers sometimes a paper or wraper can get down there and block air off from returning stoping the normal cycle.
I don't know if this is a solution but they are easy to check and eleminate as a possibility.

Had similar problem, freezer was working fine, but fridge was warm, (68 degrees) It wasnt my damper, the mother board was fried, and so was the inverter board that told the compressor what to do, after having the inverter and two mother boards replaced.......I threw it out, biggest piece of ****, only three years old, and Sears would not stand behind it, even though I used their repairmen. I will never buy another GE product, or enter a Sears store again
Your model is most likely the Profile Artica style. Most times the defrost heater is burned out behind the rear of the freezer wall. Manually defrost and look at the defrost heater to see if burned out. That model possibly has the glass covered defrost heater and will be easy to spot if burned out because the element is inside a glass tube, If you replace the defrost heater also replace the defrost thermostat, Please send me your model number located near floor of the fresh food compartment door seal and kick plate, Thanks Sea Breeze
Air circulation problem. Evaporator fan in freezer moves some air to refrig. Either fan is not working or air passages are blocked with ice. If ice found, then a defrost component failure has occurred. Fix what you find.
clean the coil behind the fridge or under the fridge (where ever they are) and make sure both fans are running, the one in the freezer and the one underneath freezer needs to be 0 degree F to start ice maker

hopefully you have a service warranty. I have had me fridge for two years and have replaced the temp control panel twice thus far. serviceman coming AGAIN on Tuesday because now everything in the fridge is freezing. cna't get the temperature in freezer and refrigerator regulated properly. GE knows they have a problem...something in the computer panel board sticks. I'd give anything to be able to put this on the curb and buy a new refrigerator.
