Either your fan is going out or you have a blockage.Replace the fan after you totally defrost it.
Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working becuse it is still frozen,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling enough and freezer has ice on back wall

HI, You will need to remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and check the defrost heater located on the bottom of the evaporator coils, for continuity. If the heater shows a break in it, replace the heater. If the heater checks out ok, check the bimetal switch that is located on the top of the evaporator coil. It has to be tested while it is cold. Check coninuity and if is shows the switch is open, replace the bi-metal switch.
If the heater and bi-metal check out ok, you will need to replace the mother board.
The heater is the nost common issue with this model.
I hope this helps you and if I can assist you further, please let me know.

SOURCE: 15 yr old GE TBX18SA refrigerator. Not cooling.

Remove the screw , on the left side of the control panel , and pull the panel , from the left side , outward to the right . You should now see , slightly to the right , from the middle , a black screw , a hole with slot , and slightly higher to the right , a hole with a white piece , with a hole in it . Now , the hole with the slot , turn with a screwdriver , until you hear/feel a louder click . Turn this slowly . When you hit the right click , the refrig will shut off . Remove the inside rear freezer panel ( and ice maker if equiped ) , by removing 3 or 4 screws , pop off the grill piece , and may have to twist the ice maker receptical slightly , to remove . If you do not see the heater on ( red ) , below the coils , then the heater is most likely the problem . pt # WR51x464 . Your old one , has a glass tube , but the new one , is calrod . I believe 2 screws hold this heater on .. If the glass heater does come on , then the problem is the defrost timer ( the piece you turned with the screwdriver ) which is removed , by removing that black screw and bending the panel out slightly . Pt # WR9X520 .
