SOURCE: Can't find refrigerator coils/ cooling issues

There're two coils ,the condenser coil wich you already clean (also make sure the condensing fan motor works properly and the fan blades are also clean).The other is the evaporator coil wich is located inside the freezer behind the back wall cover.

Hi,

Spray with clorox all purpose cleaner and scrub it with hot or warm damp wash cloth.If the handles are plastic, Krylon makes an excellent line of spray paint products that bonds to plastic and adheres to the surface. Most spray paint products only coat the plastic and on a surface like a handle that will be used constantly, is easily scratched or peeled. The Krylon plastic paint bonds to the plastic surface and is very durable. The one down side is if you paint the handles and don't like the results, there is no going backwards, you can't remove the paint once it has cured.

Thanks.

SOURCE: The GE Profile of 13 years old makes a loud bang

Good day,
If it makes the clunk or banging noise when the compressor is shutting off, then yes, internal spring or springs inside the compressor have broken.
Only solution to that problem is a new compressor.
P.S. these things can run a long time with this condition, but ultimately .....

Thank you for using FixYa

SOURCE: GE Side by Side Refrigerator no longer cooling.

If not cooling or signs of not defrosting we will need to check the compressor start components, fan mortors and motherboard. Let me know and I can guide you through this. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: how do I go about 'cleaning the coils' on a GE

It is not necessary to clean the evaporator coil.
The condenser coil underneath may need cleaning.
Use a long handle bottle brush and a vacuum cleaner.
Your refrigerator freezer temp will fluctuate from minus 5 degrees to plus 18 degrees on a regular basis.
It will not be a steady temp.

GE Profile refrigerator temperature problem


refrigerators have 2 coils. the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. one is on the bottom of the fridg and one is on the back or inside behind a false panel. these coils must be kept clean or if the condensing coil cannot reject the heat absorbed by the evaporator, the box temp will stay high and if the evap coil cant absorb heat the box temp stays low running the risk of freezing
