Try pressing and holding the top left (Engery Saver) and top right (Alarm) buttons at the same time for about 10 or 15 seconds. It should give you and audible beep and reset the panel.

Try defrosting it completely then re start it again. Shut off the water suplly. Maybe the service guy forgot to turn the water supply off.

SOURCE: Temperature and adjust refrigerator panel does not work.

problems exist in its electronic control panel that is damaged, this problem should be solved by replacing one block electronic circuit in the control panel. damage is usually caused by a memory of the troubled program. actually if you know you can fix the electronic control panel of the electronic circuit itself, simply replace the IC EEPROM or memory alone. follows with Cristal oscilator usually must be replaced too

SOURCE: GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can't flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won't turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it's bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it's in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

Pfss6pkw drain plugged

Unplug your refrigerator and remove items and shelves from the fresh food section. Not sure about what nutdriver so try a 1/4 inch nutdriver first and remove the screws holding panel number 98 in this photo HERE The beginning of the drain hole for the fresh food section is below the evaporator and in the center bottom of location number 96 in that same photo HERE For the freezer drain it will be behind panel 47 in this photo HERE You will only need the to remove the fresh food section panel ocation 98 and the freezer panel location 47 to clean these two drains. I have a video from You-Tube that shows where to clean out but his refrigerator had the drain visible without removel of these two panels. In most cases the drain cannot be seen without removal of the panels. I am here should you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze
