If the GE Profile refrigerator is not cold enough, the condenser coil may be dirty. Clean the condenser coil to improve the efficiency of the refrigerator. If the problem persists, examine both the condenser and evaporator fan motors. If any of the motors are defective, consider replacing them with new ones.

If the GE Profile refrigerator is equipped with water and ice dispensers that are not working, check the dispenser’s control board and switch. Replace a defective control board or switch to solve the problem. If the model has a water filtration system, ensure that it is installed properly and is not clogged.

A dirty water filter should be replaced with a new one of the same kind.

If the refrigerator does not operate, first confirm the appliance is plugged into a working outlet. If the problem persists, a circuit breaker may have tripped or a fuse blown off. Replace a blown fuse and reset a circuit breaker. Note that GE Profile refrigerators do not operate when in a defrost cycle, so wait for half an hour for the cycle to end and check if the refrigerator is operating.
