Customer Question

Hi.
I just moved to a new rental house where there is a GE refrigerator "Profile Performance" type, black exterior, digital with options like "Normal" "Door Open" "FF" "PF" "dE" "CI" "Chilled Water" "Crushed Ice Door" "Alarm" "System Check".
I don't find a model number anywhere, including the sides and the back of the refrigerator.
The refrigerator was open for a while because the rental broker or the previous tenant left it open so it want accumulate bad odor or so.
When I closed the doors, it keeps blinking "FF", and a light is ON saying "WARM TEMP".
I did system check and i got it to stop blinking on "FF" but "WARM TEMP" is still there.
The refrigerator is not cooling whatsoever. Now again it says "FF" and "WARM TEMP".
Is there anything I can di\o to make it work without calling A technician?
We are renting the house less than market, but we got it "As is" and we are responsible for repairs.
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
Thank's,
Isaac. [email protected]
