Question about GE GSH22SGRSS Side by Side Refrigerator
The GE fridge is 3 years old. Last year motherboard was replaced due to problems with ice dispenser and other issues (howling). Been working great. All of sudden, freezer goes from freezing to cold and fridge goes from cold to cool. Found massive amounts of frost in freezer! Defrosted fridge for 2 days and all of the frost was melted. Plugged it back in. Things seemed to be relatively back to normal (fridge still didn't seem to be as cold as it was before) but reloaded fridge. Within two weeks or so, back to the frost in the freezer and cool fridge. Checked seals around door to eliminate issue of outside moisture being the cause of the moisture. Everything looks good. Oh, by the way, I checked and the water dispenser doesn't work now! Don't know when that happened! The model of the unit is a GE GSH22JSRE SS.
I had a similar problem, i found that the small mast on the motor turning the fan was just spinning and the fan was spinning just a little bit because it sits on there. I took the plastic fan off and put tape around the mast of the fan motor and placed the fan back on so it sat on there tightly. The fan blew cold air again because it was able to **** up the cold from the coils again, compared to when it was very loose.

Your defrost timer is bad. this device is dual purpose, it is a small heater/solenoid that calls for the compressor to turn off so the lines can defrost (usually does it once every 48 hours or so). it looks like a round button clipped to the coil lines in the freezer behind the plastic paneling where the cold air comes out. you need to replace that part, which is actually very inexpensive compared to a new fridge. it will unclip from the coil line and the two or three wires will either disconnect or you may have to cut them and splice on the new ones from the new defrost timer. either way it is a job that will take anyone with basic hand tools less than an hour to do.
