Question about GE GFSF6KKYWW 25.9 cu. ft. French-Door Refrigerator with 4 Glass Shelves, Gallon Door StoraDeluxe Quiet Desiand External Ice/Water Dispenser: White
The freezer is cold but will not freeze. Also the door ice maker, the ice was melting. The fridge are is still cold though?
Check to see that the evaporator is not covered with layer of ice. The latter serves as an insulator and prevents freezer temps from going down to about zero degrees. If the defrost heater/timer is defective that will certainly be a cause. Since the freezer air is not cold enough to freeze, then the refrigerator temps are also high. Using a digital thermometer will confirm this.
Leaking door gaskets can also be responsible for higher internal temps

OK, I think I understand. Thing is we need to do a few things to see if your control board is the problem or if the fan or a freon leak is the answer. You need to tell me if this began suddenly or if over a period of time. I have been having trouble lately from Fixya if the customer (YOU) responds to my solutions. Let me know if you want my help and I will see if I get a email letting me know of your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.

you might have 2 problems. First I think you have either a defrost problem or a evaperator fan problem.
Look at the lower back wall of the freezer and if you see frost build up then you have a defrost problem.
also open the freezer door and press the door switch button that makes the light go off and listen for the fan. if you don't here the fan its a good chance that it could be bad.
I would wait on the ice maker issue until the cooling issue is resolved because it could be causing the ice maker problem.
If you dont here the fan then ckeck it in 60 min again and if you still dont here the fan it is mostlikley bad.
If you do have the frost then one of the following compontents could be bad: Defrost heater, Defrost limiter or the Defost Timer.
