Please check the ventilations as somewhere it is leaking air or somewhere the air is blocked from coming out.
for any further queries feel free to ask.
thanks

    The cold air for the refrigerator side comes from the freezer by way of a vent near the top. The air is blown from the freezer by the EVAPORATOR FAN .check it.

    If the evaporator coils are iced up due to auto defrost failure the fan can't pull the cold air across the coils. Check for ice on and or behind the back wall where the coils are. Probably easier to see from bottom. You may have to take the back panel off to see.

    So your all iced up. CHECK DEFROST TIMER--- CHECK DEFROST HEATER---CHECK DEFROST THERMOSTAT

Side by side GE TFT28PFBBWW freezer ok, refrigerator side cools interminently, most of the times does not cool at all


The problem is defrost.

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Our GE sss25kfmdww "freezes up" and then stops refrigerating


Most times on that model the defrost heater and defrost thermostat will need to be replaced. The timer is built into the mother board and for some reason they are not the most likely reason. The defrost heater has a glass tube around the element and easy to spot if burned out. If you replace one part you should replace both. Now is a good time for you to do a little reading about your model. I will give you a link to the service manual and a page with a tech sheet, Sea Breeze
