So my GE Profile bottom freezer no longer stays cold (refrigerator temperature is fine).  The freezer jumps around to 10 or 20F...which seems like a common occurance for this model from what I've read.  I noticed the condenser fan wasn't spinning fast. GE replaced the motherboard...fan and freezer worked for about a day then freezer quit cooling again (fan is fine).  GE replaced the motherboard...again.  It worked for about a day then quit cooling...again.  So, it's looking like the motherboard isn't the only original problem.  The freezer works well for about a day each time they replace the motherboard.  Forgive me cause I don't exactly understand how the freezer maintains temperature but it's almost like each time they replace the motherboard, it resets the freezer which cools just fine to 0 degrees but then when it hits the target temperature and it knows it's okay to let it warm up a little, it's like something is "sticking" that is letting it get warm and not turning off to let the cooling take back over?  Any idea on what the other part or parts that are causing me problems could be?  Bad thermostat?

Couple things here:

- if you have the old style thermistors, they need to be changed out with the new ones. See this picture. You have three: one in each compartment and one attached to the evaporator coil.

- the condenser fan needs to be replaced *along with* the muthaboard. The condenser fan may have been the cause of the previous muthaboard failures.

Thanks for the quick response!  It doesn't look like your link for the pictures is working though. :(

I just took apart the inside of the freezer and see the evaporator coils are as dry as a desert...not even a thin layer of frost.  Does that help identify the issue for why the freezer still isn't getting cold enough?
