Question about GE Profile PDS20SFSR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door
Starting about 4 days ago, I noticed the refrigerator on my 4 year old GE profile was warm (a cream cake had fallen over and milk was not cool). A thermometer I put in showed 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Now the freezer is also warm at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. I opened the rear panel at the bottom and vacuumed the lint off of the compressor and fan. There is no ice on any of the components back there or in the actual freezer/fridge. The compressor/fan seem to be working and no unusual noises have been noticed by me or my wife.
Any hints on what this could be?
Sounds like your Defrost heater is burned up. It is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the lower cover. Look at the base of the condensor. Two screws hold the heater and two wire connectors. The heater is in a glass tube. Measure continuity from one end to the other, you should see a few ohms. if it is open, your heater is definitely burned. I got a good deal on a replacement heater on Ebay. I think it was $17 including shipping. The heater being bad will cause major frost buildup in the back of the freezer and stop the Ice maker from working and damage food. Be sure to thorougly dry the freezer compartment prior to putting it back in operation. If too much moisture is present, the new heater will evaporate the moisture into the Ice dispensoer motor and solenoid that swtiches from crushed to solid ice. Hope this helps. it has nothing to do with your problem, but please Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.

Your problem could stem from an issue with the defrost timer, the compressor or its attachments (e.g.: relay, capacitor, etc.), or the freezer/evaporator fan motor. Contact an appliance service company.
