Generally the freezer or (evaporator) fan is behind the panel in the freezer and in most freezers Side by side or standard type have a series of screws or along the outer edges of the freezer panel...some (like in side by side have a freezer fan and a fresh food fan....but not many generally cold air from the freezer is introduced into the fresh food compartment by way of a vent or port hole that aloows free flow of cold air into the fresh food area (but I digress) anyway take out the (several) up to 10 screws that hold the panel in place...if you don't do it soon the fan will go out and then the freezer compartment will iIce over and the fridge will cease to cool...once you pull the panel you will see it ...take it out and take to Johnstone supply, Marcones, or WW graingers for a good price on parts. If you have them where you live.
I hope this helped....If so please rate me. thanks ...the Fang

you might have coils that are frozen up. Ironic that ice build up will prevent the fridge from working. In my case I could access the coils by removing the panel at the back of the freezer (on a maytag side by side). You then have to remove the ice (let it melt away, do mot try to cut it out...if you do you could damage the coils and there goes the fridge). In my case the problem was caused by a thermostat that was faulty. Easy to replace and all works good. Another issue could be a circuit board (located in the top part of the fridge section). I ended up replacing both parts. not too expensive if you do it yourself (less than $100 for both parts). It took me about 2 hours to do. It helps if you can get a diagram of the inside of your fridge.

SOURCE: Freezer section not freezing
If you only had ice buildup in one section of the evaporator you have a weak/inefficient compressor.
You need a new compressor or a new refrigerator.

SOURCE: My fridge freezer is broken.
Hi, you have to examine the cooling unit. If the refrigerator makes a bubbling sound, the cooling unit is leaking or the hydrogen has escaped which is why you are having problem with the freezer section not cooling and as time goes on the fridge section too will stop cooling. Replace the cooling unit.

SOURCE: I have a GE side
This is very strange,you have changed out all of the parts that are directly associated with a non defrost issue.
My suggestion would be starting all over. Not changing out parts but troubleshooting wise.
Just fyi.....all the parts can be checked from the mother board, so you will not have to take anything apart to get to the said part.
I have a procedure here on the website that will walk you through a "non defrost issue"
It has a video with a GE refrigerator set up to better explain and to show the customer the parts that are included in the defrost process.
I suggest watching all the videos and then post your questions.....
I believe we will be able to help you.
