You would first assure that the compressor is starting and staying running after you assure that it is your issue would either lie with either the defrost cycle or the sealed system. If its not then you would have a compressor issue and would have to call for a compressor technician to fix your situation if you remove the rear panel on the inside of the freezer and find the evaporator coil has ice built up all over it or the fan located above the evaporator coil is not running then this would be a defrost issue and if it is then message me back and I can instruct how to properly diagnose which piece has a fault causeing your situation if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped Thanks Rick

I had this issue after a power outage with our GE Profile Model GFSF6KKY Dispenser Model. No solution that I could find online helped me so I started trying different button combinations. Pressing Adjust Freezer and Adjust Refrigerator buttons at the same time and holding it for at least 10 seconds worked for me.

I have a GE profile side x side refrig. The


Your owners manual , will tell you the minimum clearences for the refrig . If I have 2 refrig's on my test line , less than 2 " apart , both will emit moisture on the sides , depending on the weather . There has to be air flow on the sides and rear . Sorry this doesn't answer your question directly , but there is no product that can be installed , to stop this problem with the refrig . However , you may , pull the refrig out , and treat the faceing wood , with a waterproof paint or sealant . It sounds like this part of the cabinet , will not be seen . Plastic will not work , moisture will just go thru it . Yes , treating the faceing wood sounds like the most logical solution .

GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR MOTHER BOARD PROBLEMS i REPLACED THE MOTHERBOARD AND IT STILL DOSEN'T KEEP THE PROPER TEMPERATURE. It varies from 36 to 45 degrees.


Go into the diagnostic mode on your touch display .
1) . Press any button on the display 1 time except the temp adjust buttons.
2) Press the temp up and down on both the freezer AND refrig (all 4 at the same time)
3) when 0's show , release the buttons and press any button except for the temp adjust buttons .
4) NOW , fress the temp adjust buttons until the freezer side displays 0 and the refrig side displays 7 . 0 and 7 is for the thermistors test .
5) After 0 and 7 display , press any button again except temp adjust , and this will start the thermistor check .
6) You will have 7 thermistor tests , indicated on the refrig display , starting at 1 , then 2 then .......
7) The feezer display will tell for the corresponding thermistor , indicated by the refrig display , if the thermistor p = pass , s = short , b = bad (replace board)

After determining if or which thermistor is bad , then adjust the display to 1 on freezer display and 6 on the refrig display . This ends the testing procedure and resets the refrig back to normal .

Refrig & freezer not cooling properly


I believe the start relay and start capacitor with the overload will need replaced. That is easy and should solve your problem, Sea Breeze

Not cold enough


I opened the bottom panel at the back of the fridge and cleaned the coil because it was completely covered with dust and lints and less than an hour later the fridge side temp started going down and the freezer took five hours for the temp to start going down when we didn't open it for that much time. It's back to factory setting now and thanks for the blogs that I read that I was able to try different possibilities. Your site is very helpful.

There is an internal door between the fridge and freezer section that allows the freezer air to enter the fridge side to keep the fridge cold. Sounds like the internal door is stuck open. Steve
