Question about GE Monogram ZIC360NRRH Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I suspect a problem with the damper door on my GE Monogram bottom mount(ZIC360NRRH). Before I start tearing things apart to find the damper, I'm wondering if anybody can give me some hints on where to start looking (inside, at the back, fridge section, or freeezer section?) Thanks
on the 42" Monograms the Model & serial nomenclature are usually located behind the top panel in the center section to the right of the compressor panel. Hope this helps....Bill

Open the top hook. leave it open overnight.
Check in the morning if the temperatures comes back to normal. It works for me!

This is typical for frost-free refridgerators/freezers. In order to keep ice from buiding up on the interior walls of the freezer section, the manufacturer installs electric defrosting elements and extra "warming" elements in the outer edges of the cabinet, normally around the door openings to help mitigate any frost/ice build up and surface condensation that typically occurs on the exterior surfaces as the doors are opened and closed frequently.
These edge warmers stay very warm to keep ice and condensation from accumulating and will become VERY very warm (hot) when the fridge/freezer is in the once a day defrost cycle.
Unless you have an energy saver switch (GE trademark) inside the fridge section, which you can turn off, there is no way to disable these added elements. If you find that you're getting ice building up in the freezer, you'll need to turn off the energy saver switch to resolve that issue.
Energy Saver switch "ON" means these elements are off, while having the ES switch "OFF" means those heaters are running all the time and costing you more in energy consumption

It sounds like the damper assembly might have failed or be stuck open. The damper is mounted in the left side upper rear corner of the refrigerator section. The damper controls the amount of cold air that comes into the refrigerator section from the freezer.
If you want to repair the refrigerator yourself you should disconnect the power to the refrigerator and remove the 2 screws holding the damper cover to the center wall. Sometimes you can spray the damper with WD40 and free it up.
