Customer Question

I have a GE Profile model PFSS6PKWSS that the temp control keeps changing along with the bell ringing each time it changes. This may fluctuate for up to and hour at times. Frig and Freezer are both cold and working.

Hi, when the temp changes how far does it go up or down? Do you have a volt meter? Thanks
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
goes up only a few degrees around 40-42 then it might go back down. Yes I have a volt meter. It's that ringing that's driving me up a wall...lol

So only the refrigerator side fluctuates? The freezer side never moves?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

You either have a thermistor issue or a control board issue. I suspect a thermistor but you would need to rule that out. The thermistors are inside the refrigerator section. You will need to access them and ohm them out. If they test good, the control has a software issue and will need to be replaced. The sensor should read 6.2k ohms at room temp and in a glass of ice water 16.3k. The board is on the back behind the small access cover. If you need to replace it, it has all plug and play connections. It's a very straight forward repair. You can see where all the temp sensors are in the link below. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/freezer-door-parts-for-ge-pfss6pkwass.html We work on the honor system here at Just Answers.
