Question about GE Refrigerators
Seems like you left the door open or you have a bad door seal. If it has a lot of frost against the back wall, you may have a defrost issue.

Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.

SOURCE: freezer no frost
This is probably due to the failure of defrost timer or the heating coil..Try this
1)The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.
The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.
Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.
2)If this doesnt work then Test the heating element for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. Because of the number of different elements we cannot tell what your reading should be, but we can be certain of what it shouldn't be. If the reading is zero or infinity the heating element is definitely bad and should be replaced. Proper power ( careful!! ) to the heating element ( 110-120 volts AC ) and the defrost heater does not come on = bad defrost heater.

I have a Kenmore w/ freezer on bottom. The top vent in the fridge is ducted to the freezer and is supposed to blow air. Mine was not.
I removed all the frozen goods and took off the back panel (inside to unit) which had a little ice on it. Underneath the panel was a solid wall of ice......including the motor which is supposed to blow air up to the 'fridge. I'd bet a beer that is your problem as well.
The ice seized motor will not be harmed because it is resistance loaded.
The best part is with a blow dryer and some elbow grease...the fix is free! I hope it helps.

Good Morning friend, thanks for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided the freezer on your Frigidaire refrigerator is working and the bottom portion is not. This sounds like a potential issue with your damper or defrost timer. You should check the damper and that is located on the rear upper wall. If the damper is not working properly it could be due to frost build-up or food blockage. I would recommend checking the freezer to make sure there is no frost build-up or food blocking the damper on the rear wall. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt
