    Our 3 year old GE Profile 22 cu ft bottom freezer model PDS22SBSALSS has similar symptoms. After I recycled the AC power to the fridge the display worked briefly and went blank again.

    Our Square D circuit breaker box has whole house surge protection.

    I have the same GE Profile freezer on the bottom fridge. Mine is 3 years old. Yesterday the digital display worked and today it quit. I did change the filter for the first time. I don't think it has anything to do with it, but my ice cubes were tiny. The ice cubes are fine now and now the digital display is working for a few hours and not for a few more hours. I did call GE. I wasn't willing to pay 79.99 for a trip charge and any parts extra. Any help you can give I would appreciated it. thanks Julie

Hi. Its either a bad motherboard or control board. I would check the control board for any obvious signs of damage to the board first. I've seen the control board go blank on the GE side by side and it turned out to be the motherboard. The motherboard is located behind a cover on the back of your refrigerator cabinet. You should have a new motherboard on hand at all times because they fail alot. Be sure to put a surge protector on your refrigerator. Good Luck, Mack

Had similar problem, freezer was working fine, but fridge was warm, (68 degrees) It wasnt my damper, the mother board was fried, and so was the inverter board that told the compressor what to do, after having the inverter and two mother boards replaced.......I threw it out, biggest piece of ****, only three years old, and Sears would not stand behind it, even though I used their repairmen. I will never buy another GE product, or enter a Sears store again
