The water tank in the refrigerator section has spruing a leak. The connecor to the water tank appear to be heat fused to the pipes. Is it possible to replace the water tank without heat-fusing the pipes to it.

If there are only a few rows producing cold from the freezer it may be a
Freon leak. Remove the rear panel inside the back wall of your freezer and
examine the frost pattern. When a refrigerator has enough Freon it will have
the complete evaporator covered with frost. Here is a photo of what a frost
pattern looks like with only a few rows. Frost Pattern Only Two Rows

Unfortunately if this is what you see with evaporator
exposed you will be better off shopping for a new replacement refrigerator
because the cost to repair is just not worth the expense to have someone repair
your refrigerator. If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze
Possible that the vent is getting blocked to prevent the cool air to be blown into the fridge section. So make sure that the auto defrost is working, if not check the auto defrost timer section, the fan, the heaters.
make sure that the thermostat is set to normal.
Finally shut off the fridge for 6-8 hours and see if the cooling resumes. If so the defrost section must be revisited
the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that
directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the
pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of
this in the How Things Work section of our website).If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed,
the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator
compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the
refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of
the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain
tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain
pan. In some refrigerators, the defrost water is
intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it
then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a
small drain--usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of
the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water
may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. Another cause may be the following. The
refrigerator may have doorframe heaters to evaporate any condensation on
the cabinet frame. If your refrigerator is equipped with a switch
inside that says “energy saver” or something similar, while running in
that mode the door heaters are disabled. Turn the switch to the
opposite setting and wait 24 hours. If the condensation disappears the
problem is solved.The back of the refrigerator
If the water tank in the fresh food section is leaking then you will need to replace it. the freezing in the fresh food section is due to the damper door not closing when it should. at the top left of the fresh food side there is a door that controls how much cold air it gets from the Freezer side. This door on your GE is controled by a motorized door witch is controled by a controlboard witch is reading sensors in your freezer and freshfood section for tempretures.
In short your freezing problem could be any of these:
temp sensor, Motorized damper door or control board. I would check the Motorized damper door first.
Your plastic lines at the bottom left side of frig have dry rotted from the heat of the compressor. it will leak every time the water comes on to fill the internal tank. I had the same problem and I replaced mine with copper.
hi tanks for the question there are heaters at the spots you said were hot and those heaters are there to prevent moist air from hitting cold surface and create warer droplets from forming on those surfaces i would remove the back of the fridge and vacuum it out that should solve your problem thanks the appliance doc
sounds like a leak where your incoming water line hooks to the water valves might just need to tighten the coupling or a mouse has chewed through one or both of the lines access the lines on the back and watch while some one gets water out the door to locate the leak
