If not cooling or signs of not defrosting we will need to check the compressor start components, fan mortors and motherboard. Let me know and I can guide you through this. Sea Breeze

Even though technicians may wear a patch which says GE , is does not mean they are electronic refrigerator capable . Most probably know very little refrigerator repair .
From your description , it sounds like the 2 freezer thermistors could be bad . 1 is located on the freezer side panel inside a small oval housing . This thermistor tells the main control board , the actual freezer temp and when to cycle on / off . The second thermistor is located on the top of the coils , behind the inside rear freezer wall . This thermistor is " clipped " to the coils . Both are 1 " long , torpedo looking pieces , which you can easily replace ( only 2 wires to each ) . The thermistor on the coils , tell the main board the coil temperature and when to defrost .
The part number for both is WR55X10025 and cost about $10.00 each .

SOURCE: The unit will not cool
Without refrigeration gauges, you can't check your freon level. You have to check the pressure of the freon, not the level. If you are careful and have a basic knowledge of electricity and moving parts, you can get an idea if you are out of freon. If you remove the lower slotted cover from the refrigerator you will see the condensor coils. This is a radiator that has aluminum fins on the front and will have a fan running behind it. If the compressor is running this condenser coil should be hot to the touch at the top part of the aluminum fins. If the fins are covered with dust and dirt it can cause your cooler to malfunction. Also if the fan is not running the compressor will overheat and quit. If you pull the cooler away from the wall, you can see the compressor in the bottom of the cooler. There are two copper lines leading to the compressor. The small line goes to the condensor coils (the radiator) and should be hot enough to burn your finger if you have enough freon. Also the larger of the two copper lines brings the freon back to the compressor from inside the cooler. It should be cold to the touch if you have proper freon pressure. If both of those two lines feel about the same temperature, either the compressor is not running or you have no freon. BE CAREFUL! There are electrical lines and moving fan blades near the compressor, and some of the tubing gets really hot.
