I can tell you if it can be fixed by you or if you need service. Just answer a few questions as we go through this. Pull away from wall and remove the lower panel. Feel top of compressor and see if too hot to keep your hand there or cool. Let me know if freezer fan and fan below are running. Answer those and that will help me answer your questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

We have a GE side by side that was only 4 years old before it starting giving us problems-coiling freezing over. The warranty period was only one year on all parts, including the compressor. Through our research we learned that profile appliances have or did have a better warranty. I believe it is 5 years on all or certain components. Either way it may be worth contacting GE customer service to help you with the issue and determine if repairs and parts for your appliance are still covered under warranty. They were very helpful in our case and ultimately discounted the parts I ordered and replaced myself. Replaced the the temperature sensors on the freezer side, the defroster thermostat and defroster heater before finally breaking down and replacing the control board. The control board was the problem. It was very easy to replace. While working through the issue, we would defrost the coils located on the inside of the freezer side with a hair dryer. It would get us by until the parts came in or they frosted over again and prevented air from circulating over them, thus causing the freezer not to cool. Good luck. Hope this helps you.

The problem is usually a defective defrost control or defrost system, in some case the temp control may be faulty. The defrost system causing the problem is far more common.
If this model has a temperature sensor for the freezer, check also the sensor.
About the problem:
If the unit is cooling down regularly and then going off after about 8 hours, then it is the defrost timer. The part must be replaced.
If there is ice on top of the evaporator coil, then the problem is still defrost system. Defrost timer, defrost thermostat, heater element and fan must be tested.
If the unit is not responding, and the temperature is changing erratically, or the fridge is not working at all,then the problem can also be the temperature control. This basically means that the electronic control board located in control assembly (behind the panel where you set the temperature) is defective. The part is difficult to test.
Start disconnecting power overnight. This will allow full defrost and will also reset the electronic control. If the next day the fridge and freezer sections are working, then the problem is the defrost system (AKA evap). The problem will restart in one or more days, when the defrost system failure starts putting the condenser under stress.
Here below a short article I wrote some time ago. It shows how to do the repair on a Kenmore fridge. Part location and some part name will be differently, but it is useful to understand how repair is done (it explains how to test parts): When the fridge is not cooling ...
