you need to find out if the evaporator fan in the freezer is working. or if the evaporator is all iced up. If the fan is not working you will need to replace it. If the coils are all iced up you have a defrost problem and that will ned to be resolved. Once a evaporator is all iced over air can not pass through it and you will loose your cooling in the refrigerator first. Check the heater and the terminator to make sure they are good. You can use a hair dryer to clear the ice off the evaporator. Once you find the bad part replace it and the unit will function normally

I have a GE side by side and had the same problem. Upon removing the inside cover I found that there was a substantial amount of ice on the evaporator. Melting with a hair dryer was the short term fix. I have been told, by a reputable appliance repair man, that this is common for GE refrigerators and that the cause is usually a bad defroster heating element. Fortunately you can replace this yourself for about $40.

You most likely have an automatic defrost problem. When one of more of the defrost components fails, frost accumulates behind the freezer wall and restricts airflow to the fresh food side. You will still generate cold into the freezer section but will have virtually no cold to fresh food side. If it is a few years old it is most likely the defrost heater which is defective. Replace the defrost thermostat (bi-metal) as well.
