Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer not staying cold in the hot weather

I have a GE Profile bottom freezer drawer refrigerator. It has been very hot here in NY since Saturday and we do not have the AC hooked up in the whole apartment yet. The freezer is showing temps of 20-25 despite being set at 0. This happened last year but I honestly forgot about the problem until now. Any ideas?? have same fridge - same problem every year for three years running. The computer board has blown every year during a hotspell - in fact it is happening now, almost a year to the day. Only difference I have is that the fridge heats up to 60 degrees and the freezer goes into overdrive to -18. We have had nothing but problems with this fridge from day one and have battled endlessly with our supplier and GE to no avail. So far we are $800 in the hole and I am dreading this latest need for a service call. I wish you luck and hope that your problem is something less severe. Would be interested to know what they say.

  • it sounds like the coils are not able to release enough heat to cool the refrigerator properly.
  • first i would make sure the coils under the machine are clean and the airflow around them is not obstructed in any way. 
  • there should be a fan under the machine, make sure it is running.
  •  just to hold you over you can place a fan blowing behind the machine temporarily until you figure out the problem.

Freezer not staying cold in the hot weather

Same problem as all of you. Mine happened at 17months old, not covered under warranty and cost just under $400 to have them replace the circuit board. Top of the line fridge and it is just junk! I am reading on blogs that there is a recall on these circuit boards but no one has yet to find where to call to get a free one. GE shouldn't be charging people to repair something that was bad right from the beginning whether it is past the warranty, or not. I just can't even underestand how you buy a top of the line product and you have a problem before it is even 2 years old.

I also bought a GE microwave at the same time, again, top of the line, $400 piece of junk, which I have also had nothing but problems with. It needed a new circuit board also within the first 6 months of owning it. That one was covered under warranty. Oh, and get this, the repairman had to order the circuit board rather than get me a new fridge because he says "this microwave is obselete now", are you kidding? it's 6 months old.
