Customer Question

My GE Profile's temperature won't stay constant and typically drops so that all the stuff in our refrigerator freezes.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: P5C235GNABS- I'd guess 10 years.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Depends on how much rocket science is involved.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The water dispenser doesn't work- when pressed the water goes out the bypass. Don't think it's related though.
