This could be one of two problems, either the thermostat is faulty and there's little control over temperature ( you'll know this if the fridge is always humming away and doesn't turn off very often) or, the gasket around the door is worn or damaged, il explain, if the fridge isn't air tight or at least the freezer box the moister in the air will condense as ice, hence if you leave a freezer door open it will freeze over in no time! Now the thermostat is made up of two parts, firstly there is a sealed metallic bulb which contains a heat sensitive gas, when the gas expands it shoots down a very thin pipe to a switch , hens the name thermostatic switch, now it is common for these to have a short shelf life as they are always on off on off! some fridges and freezers have an anti freeze over function ( called frost free) Check to see that your drip tray is free from water, the hole is clear that the water drains down (usually at the back, and try and keep food which contains alot of water sealed and not just open, that should cut down the amount of water in the fridge. Drying clothes in your home causes alot of excess moisture in the air also. Good Luck the Yeti

The defrosting heating element may have burnt out. Also if the gasket around the door/drawer isn't sealing correctly moisture from the air leaking in could be condensing inside and then freezing causing the build up.

What is causing the items in the vegetable bin to freeze and the ice maker is not working,(ice melted in the bin) and the water dispenser is not working and the filter was just replaced a week ago /


Sounds like the source of your refrigerator freezer temperature problem is due to a faulty evaporator fan motor. This fan circulates the air from the freezer to the refrigerator and back to the freezer. When it fails, temps are warm at the top, cold at the bottom, so the ice melts, and the water tank inside the fridge, near the bottom, freezes. I looked up your model #, but it shows no results so i cannot give you a part number.
Also, its possible if you have a control board microcomputer, its bad as well. Some model GE refrigerators the fan burns out part of the computer, necessitating replacing both.

Kitchenaid superba ice freezes in the bin


The temperature of your freezer is probably set to low allowing the ice to melt a bit, then refreeze. Try setting your freezer temp a bit lower. That should fix it.
