Customer Question
The profile refrigerator, model...

The profile refrigerator, model PFSS6PKWBSS. I can see that I’m not the only one that’s had this problem. The freezer is not cooling down but the refrigerator seems to be normal temp

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

GE profile. It’s a 2008 model

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it’s not too technical.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I saw in one of your other posts to unplug it for five minutes and plug it back in and see what the display read. I did that and the left side said -88 and the right side read 88
