Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.

be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Testimonial: "Yes, it's dual run capacitor problem. I used a stick to spin the fan blades and it starts to slowly spin and up to normal speed, so motor is good."
SOURCE: fan wont kick on
If you are talking about the condenser fan not running, that would cause the unit to shut down on high discharge pressure. Is the indoor fan running? Check the capacitor for the outdoor fan. Also make sure the outdoor fan has power to it. If it has power and the capacitor is good then the fan motor may be bad. If the nc in your name stands for NC then it is possible I could take a look at it as I am in NC. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: GE Profile fridge: freezer is
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand based on your post you have a GE profile PFS22MIS fridge not cooling in the fridge (upper cabinet) section, correct ?.
It is possible the problem is related to the condensor fan, but not likely. The difference with these fridges and many others (especially the older fridges) is the condensor fan does not run all the time. Instead the control board at the back (pcb) tells it when to run and at what rpm to run as well, it is a variable speed fan motor...and may in fact not run at all at periods.
The one thing I'd suggest you inspect is the back wall of the freezer. You mentioned the evaporator fan motor is operating, correct ? Is there any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section, or if not visible have you removed the back wall of the freezer ?
I will need to watch for your reply before going forward. I hope you can appreciate there are so many variables since the fridge has many factors controlling air flow which in turn determine what the possible problem and solution will be.
Sounds to me it is a damper or blocked evaporator initially at least. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.
