sounds like your thermostat is faulty
the thermostat reads the temperature of the cabinet and controls the temperature
the 1 thing to check on the uprights is the evaporator is in the freezer and that makes the cool then there is a fan that blows the air around the fridge and freezer to freeze things
now there is a cycle that hapens to cycle usualy every 12 hours and that is the defrost cycle
this cycle turns off the compressor and fan turns on an defrost element on the evaporator and heats up the coils to get rid of the ice
the ice turns to water and runs through a drain to a evaporator tray and when the cycle is finished the fridge stars up again and goes into the cooling state again
when the thermostat decides that the fridge is cold enough it turns of the compressor and so on it goes through the cycles as required
if the drai is blocked or the defrost system is not working the evaporator will get choked with ice and the fan will not beable to let air through to cool things off

I believe that because defrost is done by the mother control board this is why this is happening the part of the board that controls defrost is malfunctioning and the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the mother board part number WR55X10656 You can find the replacement board at these places below.

Testimonial: "You were right, thanks for your help. The control board was bad. That is what I suspected, but I wanted a second opinion."
CHECK THE CONDENSER COILS UNDER THE UNIT. THEY PROBABLY ARE DIRTY AND CANT REJECT THE HEAT.

After reading the comments of many frustrated customer with the GE Monogram built in ZIRS360NXLH I decided to trouble shoot my frig myself. Ours worked great for 9 years and then all of the sudden started growing mold, getting ice underneath the vegetable drawers and not cooling well. I spent hours online researching and doing all the recommended procedures. I did not want to call a repairmen to have him replace condensers, fans etc.
I realized that the fan that circulates air when the door closes was not going on all the time, or was going on half the time. They are located directly center on top of door frame when the door is open. Of the three it is the left switch. I pushed it in when the door was open and could feel the cold air circulating and knew this was the problem.
The cold air was settling at the bottom when the door was closed and freezing the coils, drain and thus the condensation was backing up underneath my veggie drawers and forming ice sheets. Since the top of the frig was staying warm mold was beginning to grow.
We concluded that, our door had sagged due to the knotty alder panel and too much weight placed in the door over that past nine years. There is an adjustable hinge pin under the bottom door pivot hinge that can be adjusted to raise the door. Unfortunately our was stripped when initially installed, so we had to order a new pin ($80).
This solved all the issues and it is working perfectly. I decided to post this because I read so many issues, that were all mine, many frustrated customers, and never heard anyone diagnose this problem. One can find the refrigerator diagram online to see all the parts I am talking about.
This has been a wonderful refrigerator and unfortunately there are too many dishonest repairmen so this refrigerator gets a bad rap.
