GE Profile Fridge PFSS5NJW SS. My fridge and freezer warmed up about a week ago. Fans working, no frost buildup, the thermister test from the display panel indicated they all passed, other tests that can be run from the display panel were all positive. I replaced the main control board (evidently mistakenly) and the fridge returned to its 0/37 setpoint over a period of about 18 hours and stayed there for a day before beginning to warm again. At first the freezer temp starts to climb but fridge holds fairly steady, then as the freezer temp approaches the fridge they start to climb in tandem until they get up to about 60 (still below ambient). Then after another day, they started down again. Compressor and compressor fan seem to be working. Compressor is a bit hot to touch (dont know if this is normal).... any suggestions?

Ok lets focus on freezer temp since all cold air actually comes from the freezer.. when the unit starts to warm in temp are you saying the compressor is running during this time?
We want to make sure both fans are running, the condenser fan in back by the compressor and the freezer fan motor.. if it is warming and both fans are running + the compressor this could be a more serious issue.
