Customer Question
I have a GE...

I have a GE profile side by side refrigerator that is 11 years old. The refrigerator side is not cooling below 40 degrees. Is this fixable or do I need a new one?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It's 11 years old.

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

Where do I find the model number?

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

I don't plan on fixing it myself. Just wanting ro know if it can be fixed and if it's worth it.

Yes this is definitely worth fixing. The refrigerator cools by stealing air from the freezer section which means that if your freezer is working, the expensive sealed system stuff is not your problem. You either have a bad thermostat, damper, or defrost issue not allowing air to flow properly but they can all be fixed for about $150-250 depending on the exact issue.
