Question about GE Refrigerators
I have a GE GSS22VGMD side by side with icemaker in the door. Both the freezer and the refrigerator seemed to have stopped working and are not staying cold.

The fan should be a standard 12v DC computer style fan , test that you are getting voltage to the fan connector . You should also be able to get the fan to run by connecting it to a suitable supply . Once you have eliminated the possibility of fan failure then it gets more involved.

Did you clean the condenser? Is the unit FULLY defrosted? Defrost fully!!!!!!
Did he check the amount of gas in the unit? If your unit has low gas...it is in need of more. R12 is expensive.
Check gas level: Shut unit for at least one hour. View compressor. Several pipes...we're looking at the largest. Start the unit. This pipe will begin to frost. If it does not clear to dry, ice or wet...stays frosted...it is low. Get the repair guy back ... but ask how much he'll charge first.

If solution #1 fixes the problem, but it happens again, then check to see if you have water leaking from the ice maker area. I had a similar problem with my same model, and found that the ice maker water fill tube was leaking where connects to the connector in the back wall of the freezer. Water was leaking onto the freezer coils, causing it to go into defrost for long periods and both the freezer and fridge would warm up.
Getting to the fill tube is not an easy job. If you just pull it out without disassembling the fan compartment, you will probably not be able to get it back in.
You will likely want to move your food, unplug the fridge and thaw it out. Disassembling the top compartment on the inside of the back wall of the freezer is a tedious and time consuming task. After that I was able to just pull the tube out and turn it around and push it back in for a snug fit. You might consider using a sealer.

using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get
rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.
The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.
If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

You will need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel inside the freezer. Check for ice or a frozen over evaporator coil. If frozen defrost and we will need to examine the defrost heater at the bottom of the evaporator. It may have a glass tube covering the heater element inside. I want you to check to see if it is burned out. The part number for the defrost heater is WR51X10042
You please let me know what you find. If the element is burned out I recommend you replace it and the defrost thermostat part number WR50X10068
