Ice build up blocked the fan and caused the motor to fail.
Unplugged the frig. Removed the food and let the ice build up thaw. Remove the shelves. Remove the 4 screws in the back panel and shelf rack bar. Gently start to pull the back panel toward you working to out a little at a time. There are 2 wire connections in the upper right corner. When disconnected and removed lay the panel face down and remove the 4 screws holding the metal fan panel in place. Two screws mount the fan to the fan bracket. When removed, twist fan 90 degrees and it will be free. A spring clip holds the fan blades on the motor. Use a pair of needle hose pillars to pull the spring clip off. Pull the fan blade off the motor. Reverse the process for reinstallation.

The French swing part of the door would not go back where it needed to. I had to put it back in place with my hand.
I just replaced the broken spring and the little plastic cylinder that goes over the end of one part of the spring. I placed the plastic part on first and slid it in place, then had to bed the other end of the spring a little bit to place it in the hole. But once it went in, the door worked perfectly. And I'm a 70 yr old woman. So if I can do it, anyone can.

Ice tray was one solid ice cube
Leaking icemaker assembly was causing all of the ice cubes in the ice tray to freeze together. Remove ice tray, remove one Philips screw, pull the cover off, unplug the wires, remove the icemaker assembly by pushing tab and pulling the assembly at the same time. Replaced the water filter as well.

Corner of shelf cracked
Watched repair video from this site cleaned off shelf, removed the two bins, lifted it out broken shelf, placed new shelf back in, returned the two bins. One step that would have helped a little would have been to remove the bottom door pockets. This would allow the bins to come out easier.

Broken hinge plates on folding shelf
Had to pay for entire shelf/hinges/ and backer plates. Aside from the high price, install was super easy. Pop off the two caps on the existing screws(Phillips head). Pull off old shelf and install new. Two screws, that's it! Just needed to reuse the screws and caps (did not come with new shelf).

Door on our GE Profile refrigerator failed to close properly - upper hinge replacement
If this repair looks hard then you probably aren't doing it right. The key to doing this fairly easy upper hinge replacement is to pry the metal back off of the swinging panel attached to the door as a first step. Doing so exposes the screws that hold the hinges in the panel, and also the tabs that you must press in to release and remove the hinge covers. I accidentally broke the tabs on both hinge covers removing them, but I discovered that it didn't matter - I was still able to snap them both into place without having to replace them as well. Once you've released the hinge covers slide the panel upwards to reveal the entirety of the hinge, then push the hinge up with a flathead screwdriver so that it slides off of the anchor piece on the door. Slide the replacement part down onto the anchor, slide the swinging panel down and replace the hinge covers. From inside the panel reattach the screws (middle hinge only) and replace the panel parts including the metal back. Whole repair takes about 15 minutes.

The door flap on the french door would not reset itself to go into the upper track it would just flop around freely and jam the door from being closed.
Just opened the french door took the new plactic sleeve placed it on the upper end of the spring and then inserted into the upper hole first then with a little pressure turned the bottom end of the spring and placed it into the lower hole.
