Most likely it is the Main Control Board also called the Motherboard. It is located on the rear of the unit behind the smaller axcess panel. Becareful with the wiring if you attempt to change the board. There is a slight possibilty that it is the dispay board, but it is unlikely.

SOURCE: GE Profile Refrigerator PFS22SISBSS Bottom Freezer Temperature Indicators

I finally called GE about the non-working LED's and the temperature fluctuation. It's a known problem as many consumers have posted online. I called 800-386-1215 several times. What I found is I'd get different menu options nearly each time I called. The way I got to a 'helpful' human follows: Call above number; you will/may here a voice that states only 'for recalled appliances press 9' (may also have options for repair or parts) PRESS 0; next menu PRESS 5; you'll hear 'for less than 1 yr old press 1' and 'for more than 1 yr press 2'. In my case I pressed 2, then got a menu with 'for refrigerators PRESS 2'. Spoke to a woman who never denied that GE has a motherboard problem. She offered to provide a free motherboard but no labor. I asked (to be sure) if I would have to pay labor, she said yes or I could have $400 off a new crappy GE fridge. She said I would have to have a repairman come to diagnose the problem, then order the part and then come back to repair. I then said, 'You're telling me that I have to pay for TWO service calls to repair a known GE defect???? How much should I expect to pay for these TWO service calls???' She then asked me to hold, then came back on the line and told me that GE would pay the labor for the repair.
I also asked if GE was willing to do anything about the 25 cent door latch that cracked after 11 months (and is attached to the door gasket a $228.00 part) or the rusting wire freezer baskets and was told no. Hey, worth a try! The fact that they said no ensures that I will continue on my crusade to warn anyone who'll listen not to buy GE! Keep calling, after I got the right menu the wait was short the whole call was less than 15 minutes.

SOURCE: Power is on but nothing is working, not cold ,no water, no ice

Sounds like the unit needs a reset of sorts, Get your food into another refrigerator or ice chests and unplug the unit. let it stand open for several hours (just in case the vents are iced) and then plug it back in.

either the evaporator fan in the damper vent door isnt running to push cold air from the freezer up into the refrige compartment or the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section is frozen shut and cannot open to allow cold air flow,you need to access the evaporartor coil in the freezer rear wall and check both the fan and door movement

the damper vent door from the freezer to the refrige located between the 2 sections has frozen shut and cannot open to let cold air into the refrige from the freezer,its behind a plastic grille near the top of the units divider you should be able to hear a fan in this area too its in there open this up and defrost with a hand held hair dryer if iced over,then make sure fan is operating,then move the temperature control and see if it opens up

Freezer ok fridge not cooling


check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer compartment and make sure its not frozen shut and the refrige control that you set the refrige temp with is opening and closing it correctly as this door channels the cold air in from the freezer

The freezer runs good but the fridge is not cooling


check for movement of the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer compartments if its frozen in place,defrost it as it can't throttle cold air in from the freezer,if this is ok and you have lost lights and replaced them and now they just "strobe" or flash dimly and the digital read-out display if so equipped in the refrige section and possibly there's a relay clicking in the rear of the unit too,then its the main-board thats defective in the rear area of the fridge

Freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up and you need to see if the defrost section is working correctly,then as for the warm refrige side,it sound as if the vent damper door is frozen shut or the cold control in the refrige isn't opening it to let cold air into the refrige from the freezer,if its frozen take a hand held hair dryer and remove the vent grille over it and defrost it and then check to make sure the control opens and closes it as you adjust its control in the refrige

Refrigerator cold control doesn't work; temperature stays at or below freezing. Freezer control OK.


check the damper door between the refrige and freezer compartments,its behind a plastic cover,if its iced up in the fully open condition it will allow too much cold air into the refrige,if this is the case defrost it with a hair dryer and recheck operation,otherwise the temp control in the refrige is bad

Freezer is working properly but fridge doesn't seem to be. Light not coming on and food not cold enough, though not there seems to be some cooling


check that the damper door between the refrige and freezer is operating with the refrige adjust control,sometimes they ice up in a position and cant let cold air in to the refrige,deice it with a hair dryer and then adjust that control and watch if it moves open or closed

My side by side Model GSH22KGRE BB freezer is


there is one of 2 possibilities,either the damper door between the refrige and freezer compartments is frozen shut due to ice build up and needs thaw out,the cold control that controls this door is bad or the mother board on the lower rear apron behind a cover panel is defective,if you have had light bulbs go out in the refrige compartment and now the refrige part does not cool and the temp light readout is dark this is a good indication its the motherboard,also if the lights are strobing and you can hear a relay clicking

Freezer & freezer work fine. Water stops when refrige is set at 38 degrees. To keep water from freezing we have to set the refrige temp to 40 degrees, but find that temp not cold enough. Water can...


It may have auto-defrost or frost-free feature that is not operating. Also there is a drain tube that goes from the compartments to the bottom of the fridge where the evaporator pan is. The tube may be plugged.
