Question about Freezers
My GE freezer is warming up to +/- 28 degrees with the fan running in a lower speed? The refrigerator temperature remains about 37. This just started happening and it seems to be happening more than once a day. I heard the fan speed increase while I had the freezer door open but the temperature did not appear to go down. Eventually the temperature does go down at times to -4 degrees when it set at 0 degrees. Last night I heard the compressor running without the fan running in the freezer.
This sounds like your motherboard,computer or control board(they call it different things in different models) is bad. It is responsible for the fan speed and timing of the defrost cycle.
To locate your timer, motherboard, control or adaptive
defrost control , enter your model number and search for the part or post back

Tips for a great answer:
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The normal setting for a freezer is -2 to +2 degrees F., and the normal setting for the fresh food section is +35 to +40 degrees F.
You only have one source of cooling and that is your freezer. With the settings that you have, you are asking your unit to do what it is not designed to do.
The ice maker is struggling because if it is a cast steel ice cube mold, the heater beneath it is not designed for the current to break the ice cubes free @ -18 degrees F., or if you have a plastic flex ice cube mold it is too ridged to flex enough to break the ice cubes free. Normally your ice maker should dump 8-10 times in a 24 hour period.
A note on food storage. Make sure you do not overload your freezer of fresh food section to the point where food product extends beyond the edge of the shelves.
