Question about GE Refrigerators
The freezer side does not get cold enough to make or keep ice in the bin. Just below the ice maker and bin are some vents where a fan used to blow out of but does not anymore. Is it the obvious, fan issue or something else? Thanks.
YOU COULD HAVE A BAD FAN MOTOR IN THE FREEZER BUT IT COULD BE A DEFROST PROBLEM ARE HAVE A BAD MAIN BOARD ON THE BACK OF THE FRIG

Thre is a fan inside the freezer which circulates the cold air around both the fridge and the freezer compartments.
You should be able to feel cold air blowing around the inside, particularly at the top of the freezer.
If the defrost thermostat fails open, the internal fan (depending on freezer) will stop and this can be the cause of the freezer being warm at the top and no ice.
You say the bottom of the freezer is blowing cold, but are you sure its blowing, as it can feel like a cold blow. Of course the fan could have failed or may be the defrost heater itself.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.
