Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
Spills have entered the front of the drawers between the clear plastic and the white fronts that I cannot get at and has started to mold. Looks like the fronts could come off because they are separate but don't want to force and break the plastic
I had the same problem. Apparently the problem is the main control board. According to the technician that came out to fix mine there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer. I had done a fair bit of research before calling GE and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. So I pressed them and was able to get the fee for the part waived (before I made the service call appointment) which was around $150. The part now has a 5 year waranty which I find funny, because I'm not sure why it wouldn't have that upfront as my refridgerator is only 2 years old. Whatever!! Unfortunately, unless you have indepth knowledge of refridgerator repair there is no way around the service call and labor. Anyone buying a new model of refridgerator (any company) should consider an extended waranty. The service tech also told me that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required, by law, to have an electronic mother board which in all likelyhood will fail at somepoint prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge!

You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.

SOURCE: removing refridgerator grill
Look at the top slots in the grille. If there is a slight cutaway near the ends that is where the release tabs should be. If no release tabs, try a gentle lifting pressure in the grille as you try to pull away. They are made to be removed by the user. Check the manual if you can find it. If no luck, reply, I'll see if I can find one.

Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

This is an issue with the convection system in the refrigerator, while the cold air trapped withing the crisper drawer remains and the temperature of the moisture in the area drops below the freezing point, the water content acts as a cover and thereafter enables the vegetables to freeze. A slight rearrangement of the utensils within the refrigerator solved the problem
