Yep, the ice buildup is restricting air flow to the fresh food compartment. This means you have a problem in your defrost circuit. First, go to your local appliance parts store and purchase a defrost thermostat. Part #WR50X55. It's a G.E. built part and will replace your bad one. UNPLUG YOU FRIDGE! You'll have to empty out your freezer compartment and remove the rear panel. Once this is done, you'll see the defrost thermostat physically mounted to the *evaporator. *(the aluminum coil assy. that's all iced up.) It looks like the one you just bought. Remove it from the evaporator and cut the wires right at the thermostat, then discard it. Strip the newly cut wires exposing 1/2" of wire. Do the same with your new one. Wire color does not matter, just connect one wire of your new part to one of the wires in the freezer, then do the same with the other one. Now mount it (use the clip provided) back to the evaporator where the old one was located. Repair complete. Except that you'll need to completely defrost (melt) all that ice out of there before it'll cool properly again. Grab a hair dryer for this job. Do this before you replace the rear panel, it'll go quicker that way.

SOURCE: water in my fridge
sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
