Try to check for Warranty protection, and if the time coverage has not yet elapsed. If it has not, try to take to service technician, if it has, then the problem is just the Coolant, a chemical liquid that when its volume is expanded, its temperature drastically drops, its called freon. Try see if you can replace the coolant. :)

ICE CREAM WON'T FREEZE
The ice cream does not freeze, it stays soft. I have a GE Monogram 42" Built-in-Side-by-Side Refrigerator.

Testimonial: "Great response time. Very helpful too."
The problem is most likely the condensor fan motor is starting to fail. This is easy to check, First remove the back cover and when the compressor is running you should have voltage going to the fan motor if you do the fan motor needs replacing if not then the main board would be at fault here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/refercondenserfan.html

SOURCE: GE Profile fridge: freezer is
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand based on your post you have a GE profile PFS22MIS fridge not cooling in the fridge (upper cabinet) section, correct ?.
It is possible the problem is related to the condensor fan, but not likely. The difference with these fridges and many others (especially the older fridges) is the condensor fan does not run all the time. Instead the control board at the back (pcb) tells it when to run and at what rpm to run as well, it is a variable speed fan motor...and may in fact not run at all at periods.
The one thing I'd suggest you inspect is the back wall of the freezer. You mentioned the evaporator fan motor is operating, correct ? Is there any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section, or if not visible have you removed the back wall of the freezer ?
I will need to watch for your reply before going forward. I hope you can appreciate there are so many variables since the fridge has many factors controlling air flow which in turn determine what the possible problem and solution will be.
Sounds to me it is a damper or blocked evaporator initially at least. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Most times the motherboard is the
problem that causes the solder to melt from a defective relay. You will need to
inspect the compressor start relay and capacitor to insure that they did not
cause the relay on the board to overheat. Also check that you have 12 volts dc
going to the evaporator and condenser fans while running because if for some
reason the fans are defective and you change the motherboard while one of the
fan motors are defective your new motherboard again can be damaged. Here is a
