Sounds like the sensor for the auto-defrost is not working.
Easily replaced.

You will need to find a local appliance parts shop, take the model number along.
Explain the problem. By gettign the part first you can figure out what you are looking for inside.

Usually it is a simple unplug and plug in operation.

You will have to open the unit. Only takes a screwdriver.

Had same problem. Removed kick panel at bottom and found the wires from the freezer door near the lower hinge are very flimsy. The white wire was broken at the connector and the connector was corroded. Since I have no plans to remove the freezer door, I spliced the wires together with **** connectors and it's working fine.
GE could do better.

GE Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling


Loss of coldness is common with compressor related problems....relay and overload(simple fix), loss/leak of refridgerant(need a cert. tech). need to check the compressor and see if its running....do this by pulling the unit out and removing the back panel, place your hand on the compressor and see if it feels like its running....if not probably just a relay, if it is running, could be a more serious problem dealing with sealed system.
