It sounds like the drainage for the defrost water is plugged or obstructed somehow. The ice build up is left over water that is freezing due to the fact that it has not been channeled out properly and when the cycle comes back on it freezes.
look for the collection pan underneath the fridge, access the tube ending to there, blow some air through it. Compressed works best if you have access to some. Also I would advise doing this after the unit has been off for a short while, sometimes the plug will be frozen, so give it time to melt just in case. When you blow on the tube there should be no back pressure, this will tell you if the plug has been removed.

i have seen this problem before
its the control board in the back the board is about 150 dollars
and it goes every DING DING 5 years lol
horrible design of the one that comes on the fridge every ge side by side has this problem
its very easy to replace but have to "ground" yourself before you touch the new control board meaning rub you hands on plumbing pipes, not pvc or copper
good luck if you got questoins let me know

Had the same problem. Bottom of freezer was about the right temp but the upper part was way too warm. Fridge side was fine. Ice maker stopped making ice - it wasn't broken, but it won't run through its cycle if the temp is too high. Cubes already in storage hopper melted and water refroze as it ran to lower, colder part of fridge. Problem: Fan controller for freezer compartment was faulty. The fan itself was fine. Fix: GE replaced the main circuit board that controls everything on this model, including the freezer compartment fan. Once that was done, temp returned to normal, ice maker is happy again. The board had undergone several revisions from the factory installed one (could tell this by comparing the part number on the old and new boards - they increment it when they revise it.) Bad news: the part/labor were expensive and of course failed after the warranty ran out. Good news: the board is now guaranteed for 5 yrs. (Why wouldn't the factory-installed board ALSO be good for five years instead of just one? It's not like the replacement boards are made better.) Labor is covered only for 90 days though so it won't be free if they have to come back after that.

Hi: Your defrost heater or defrost timer is bad. There is an off chance your freezer or fresh food compartment are so full they block the airflow. If not full, Remove the food from the freezer, unplug the ref. and hit the back wall of the freezer with a hair dryer. Avoid plastic components as they will melt. When your defrost mechanism fails frost will form where it shouldnt and block the airway to the fresh food compartment. That's why the freezer still works. That will get you a week or two of fresh food getting cold. If your'e handy remove the back panel of the freezer at the bottom will be a glass tube with a metal coil in it. If the coil is broken buy the new defrost heater and install it. If not look for a defrost timer. Use the model number of the refrigerator to find the part. www.searspartsdirect.com will have a parts schematic to help you find out where the timer is located. There shipping is high so try to buy it locally. I hopes this helps, Jeff
