In most cases it is the Defrost timer circuit. One of three things the Defrost time (most likely) it allows the cooling for a 6 to 10 hour period and the defrosting for 10 to 30 minutes to remove ice buildup, ICE BUILDUP is the main problem as it restrict air flow, the cooling air circulation through the system. You see cool air only comes in the freezer side and passes through vents (pass ways) to the refrigerator side. Ice buildup in the freezer side inhibits cooling air to the refrigerator side. You think the freezer is working, but it is only cooler because there is ice in there that you can't see. The Terminator (a LIMIT switch) opens the defrost circuit if the defrost heater gets too hot (second likely) the next is the Heater which heats for those 10 to 30 minutes to melt the ice buildup (least likely) no matter the Unit you have they all have this circuit... Hope this helps, I'm Tango

Refrigerator refuses to cool or freeze


Pull the base front panel off. Inside using a flashlight look for a small motor abnout the diameter of lashlight and about one and a half inches tall. This unit will have a slot for a large flatblade screwdriver. Turn the slot (CLOCKWISE ONLY) until you hear a slight click. If your fridge fires up than you need a new "Defrost timer" if it does not than you've got bigger problems. Give the test about ten minutes time then feel the freezer walls, they should be cold. Thank you, Dana

GE Profile refrigerator cooling system failure


Replace the mother board. Part will run aprox. $185. Get a new one, in a factory sealed box. Easy to replace, just take the rectangular cover off the back and transfer the multi plugs. Takes about 10 minutes.
