It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: coils keeping freezing up again
Yep , replace the # 4 and # 5 thermistors . The # 4 , is the small , white 1" long torpedo looking piece , clipped to the top of the coils on the left side , in the freezer , with 2 white wires going to it . This tells the control board , the temp of the coils , when to defrost , and when to stop defrosting . The # 5 thermistor , is located at the bottom left rear of the freezer ( or behind a small oval grill on the right ) with 2 white wires going to it . This thermistor , tells the control board , the freezer temp . The part number for both is WR55X10025 .

Ok, sounds like you are on the right track. Let me see what you have for defrost control. I don't know what your OHM are through the defrost heater but it will show resistance because that is normal. Open or almost nothing would concern me more. You do have Adaptive Defrost Control inside the fresh food compartment and that may be the problem, I just checked one site and will be back soon.

It is normal for the coils to frost evenly all over but if it's not defrosted it will build up preventing proper cooling. After replacing your defrost components make sure the frost is being melted. The motherboard determines when to defrost based you your use of the freezer/fridge. It should defrost from once a day to once every two or three days.
Is the fan in the freezer running? It won't cool right without it. It should run when the compressor runs.
Are the coils frosting evenly? Uneven frost means it is low on freon and requires a tech to repair.
Is the fan underneath the fridge near the compressor running when the compressor runs. If not It won't cool properly.
Does the compressor ever cut off as it should when it reaches the selected temp.

There are four things that will cause this problem and they are the defrost thermostat, defrost heater, evaporator thermistor and the main board. This page will help http://appliance-repair-it.com/GE-refrigerator-repair.html
Also yes, the board is the timer.
