How to Adjust the Temperature on a GE Profile Arctica Refrigerator

The GE Profile Arctica refrigerator is a discontinued model. Although the refrigerator is reliable, it does not meet many of the Energy Star qualification standards. One of the user-friendly features on the Profile Arctica is the temperature control panel. Instead of using a dial inside each compartment, the Arctica uses a digital display. This provides more accurate temperature control. Adjusting the temperature on a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator is literally a matter of the push of a button.

Step 1

Open the GE Profile Arctica refrigerator door and find the temperature controls at the top of the unit. There is a control for the freezer and the refrigerator. Some models have a display with the actual temperatures while others have a display showing single digit numbers. Units with single digit displays use "0" to shut off the system and "9" as the coolest setting.

Step 2

Press and release either the "Warmer" or "Colder" pad on the refrigerator temperature control panel. The LED "Set" light will illuminate, and the display will show the temperature setting instead of the actual temperature.

Step 3

Tap either the "Warmer" or "Colder" pad with your finger until you reach the desired setting. Allow five seconds for the display to return to the actual temperature.

Step 4

Repeat the process for the freezer control. Close the refrigerator door and allow 24 hours for the GE Profile Arctica to reach the newly set temperatures.
