Question about Refrigerators
Freezer side is not maintaining foods solid frozen and so I want to clean the condenser as recommended in the manual. The manual does not say how to do it or how to get to it.
You first need to see if there is frost building up on the rear panel inside your freezer. This may be a defrost issue so I need you to at the least have a look to see if any frost is building like in this=> PHOTO You may also need to remove the rear panel of your freezer to expose the frost buildup as seen in this=> PHOTO
If you find frost building like the examples I listed the problem will be the Adaptive Defrost Control listed as part location 23 in the photo=> HERE
The adaptive defrost control board can be found here=> FRS26R4AW5 Defrost Control Board
The defrost heater is part location 14 and the defrost thermostat is listed as part location 21 found in the exploded view of the evaporator section=> HERE The next most likely parts to fail are the=> 5303918255 Defrost Heater Assembly
and the=> 53how do you clean the condenser in Frigidaire side - 12_5_2012_7_24_09_am.jpgtat
How to test these parts can be found in the tutorial found on the same pages. Below is a link to=> HVAC Refrigerator Coil Cleaning

I can offer a suggestion. It sounds like you have a plugged defrost drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube

icemaker is iver filling and running down through the freezer, some of the water runs out into the floor since the door gasket does not provide an water proof seal just an air tight seal
the ice maker can be adjusted, remove the cover off the frount of the icemaker and back the screw on the right side so that the indicator in the middle is twards the minus sign and you need to clear the frozen water out of the freezer drain pan so it can go to the drain pan down at the compressor
it might take a few adjustments on the ice maker to get it right

You are right about it being little or no air circulation. There is a fan motor in the freezer, which you can access by removing the rear panel of the freezer panel.
That's the good news. The bad news it is a DC variable speed motor controlled thru a thermistor and powered from the motherboard located in the back wall of the refrigerator.
You can remove and take the motor to an appliance parts house that deals in GE parts. If they determine the motor is bad, then you could effect a repair.
If not the machine is too complex, and some parts so expensive that repair is best left to a GE qualified pro.
