I just read on another site that the fluctuation is a normal part of the defrost cycle. (Down to -15 first then up to 15+). I have this hapen in my side by side. Also notice that the -15 in the freezer seems to be cold enough to sometime freeze the lettuce. Also on when the freezer is at 15+ now my ice cream melts. This is sad, if this is normal?

    Update: I ended up buying a new LG. I will likely never buy a GE refrigerator again. My new one has had no issues.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

GE Profile PFSF5NJW French door Bottom freezer. Freezer is fine. Refrigerator at 60 degrees. Unplugged for two days to thaw any possible freeze up. Refrige still at 60 degrees.


If that is what happened after plugging back in still no change in temperature I recommend you call someone you can trust. Trust is about asking too much these days. You refrigerator does not need to run at all until I or someone can find the problem. If someone there would like the challenge and knows how to use a multi-meter let me know. Thanks, Sea Breeze

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.
