There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

Yes, there is supposed to be a plastic bushing/washer under there. Usually 1/8 inch thick. If a dealer is not handy you may cut some out of plastic to put there. Then undo the top hinge, and carefully lift the door off (you might want to empty the shelfs). Put your spacer on the hinge pin, and replace the door and the top hinge.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

Yes it is a hinge cam that broke. Can be ordered on the GE website. A no pro job to replace. A little patience and time about 30 minutes.

To avoid risk of electrical shock, severe personal injury or death; disconnect power to unit before servicing, unless
testing requires power. Discharge capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before handling. Wires removed during
disassembly must be placed on the correct terminals to ensure proper grounding and polarization.
Here are the instructions from the manual below.
1. Open door and remove all storage buckets.
2. Remove toe grille.
NOTE: Shut off water supply before performing Step 3.
Have a bucket ready to catch spillage from tube.
3. Loosen water-tube clamp screw. Loosen plastic
water-tube union nut. Pull water tube away from
union nut and through tube clamp.
4. Remove screw that mounts door closure to top
surface of bottom hinge.
5. Close door.
6. Remove screw holding top hinge cover in place.
Remove top-hinge cover.
7. Unplug wiring harness connectors. Remove ground
screw and ground wire from top hinge.
8. Remove top hinge and hinge bushing. Pull hinge and
bushing off wiring harness.
NOTE: Hinge shim is glued to top of cabinet and must
be left in place.
9. Lift door about 3 inches to bring lower hinge bushing
up, off hinge pin.
10. Set bottom edge of door on protective pad. Remove
hinge pin (with door-closure tab) from bottom hinge
11. Reverse procedure to rehang door.

and for a simple snap on coupling I want you to call to insure you get the correct size and snap on union.
