Question about GE Refrigerators
The unit is in trouble, but you're right, it's not dead yet. Check the condenser coils, clean them if needed. They must be able to dissipate the heat. Check the condenser fan, must be unobstructed, turn free, a drop of oil may help if it's dying. You may have a failed Defrost system. That failure causes the evaporator coils to ice over, choking off the airflow inside the box. If you shut it down, and train a heatlamp on the rear panel of the freezer (inside) and a small flood occurs, then the defrost is it. After the thaw, you can start the box, and it will cool again until it ices over again. the right answer is to fix the defrost problem in that case. The defrost timer can fail and cause this, if you locate the timer, (usually behind the grille) and advance the center shaft with a screwdriver, slowly until a click and the compressor stops, give it an hour and advance again to restart, you may get a defrost if all else is ok. (replace the timer)
