GE Profile French Door Bottom Freezer not cooling

I have a 22 cu ft. GE Profile french door, bottom freezer that is about 1 1/2 yrs old (model no. PFS22SBSBSS). It does not stay cool and I can hear frequent start/stops "clicking". The freezer seems to stay around 0 degrees, but the fridge is warm. The display often shows 0, and 60 (fridge). Sometimes when I open the doors the display stays blank, but the fridge seems to be running and is cooling down.

I have tried unplugging it for 1 day and it seems to start back up and cools down, but not for long. Then it goes into the frequent clicking mode.

Any suggestions/things I can check?

    I have the exact same problem as of yesterday with the same refrigerator? My freezer stays cold but my refrigerator is at 60 degrees. My display also is blank when I open the door sometimes. Does anyone have the solution a part from what's already been posted? Can I repair it myself without any special know-how?

    Thank you

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.

When it's running is the fan in the freezer on? It may be a quite fan so feel for air from top back in freezer. If not it may need a new evaporator fan motor.
Also , is there frost on back wall of freezer? If so it's not defrosting.
Is there frost near the freezer door area? If so the door isn't always getting closed properly. This causes a frost and ice build up in the passageway to the refrigerator section from the freezer. The blocks the cold air from getting to freezer.

Not cooling. i do not hear the compressor. fan is working. 3 yrs old

The condenser fan is very quiet so you may not hear it . remove the lower rear back panel and check whether the compressor and or fan is running . Also check if the back wall of the freezer has frost on it or if the evaporator fan in the freezer is running.

GE French Door 22 cu ft (PFSW2MIXSS). Loud buzzing from behind the freezer. Ceased cooling.

The model number you post appears to be incorrect.
The buzzing was from the evaporator fan blade hitting on some ice build up. Getting to it on a bottom freezer refrig is a bit of a pain in the back side. If your model has a pull out freezer drawer, that has to be removed, the icemaker removed, one side of the drawer supports from the freezer wall, all to allow you to remove the back wall of the freezer to get to the fan. You may be able to just thaw out the fan and surrounding area then which will get your refrig cooling again, if the ice was just around the fan area. On the pain in the but repair scale of 1 - 10, this one rates at least a 7.

Display out

Does the display not light up when you press a button ?? Check the electrical connector at the bottom of the door as it may have corroded or become disconnected.
