I own a GE Profile Side by Side. The fridge is blowing cool air, but is not getting cold enough for use. The fan that sucks air out of the freezer in the refrigerator's bottom door comes on only for a second when you plug it in, then shuts off. I unplugged it for a couple of days, then plugged it back in and pushed the "turbo cool" button and the fridge got down to 38 degrees and the freezer got down to 12, then started to warm back up. Please help.

This is one of those high end machines.

These refrigerators use computer boards, electronic controls, thermistors, DC motors, dual evaporators and power inverters. Specific tests are designed for these components and usually require entering the refrigerators diagnostic mode.

Troubleshooting steps are outlined in the service manual and should only be attempted by persons with some mechanical skills and the ability to read and understand flow charts and wiring diagrams. A multi-meter that can read AC volts, DC volts, Ohms/Continuity plus the ability to read and understand the multi-meter is also necessary. Troubleshooting with the service manual can be difficult and time consuming and without the service manual, next to impossible. I'll check and see if I have a service manual for your machine. If you think you are capable of diagnosing the problem yourself, I'll give you the manual.

I'll need to see if I can locate the manual so hang tight. It sounds like the motherboard is the problem
