Question about GE GBS22HCR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
SOURCE: Fridge too cold
There is a damper motor that is behind the vent where you feel the cold air coming out in the fridge section. That damper should open and close after making temp. adjustments. See if you can look in the vent and see if it is wide open. Set your freezer on the coldest setting and check this vent again an hour or so later. If it is still wide open then that damper motor is bad. Let me know if you find something different or have any questions.

The same fan that circulates air in the freezer also blows air in to the fridge. If you open the freezer door and hold the door switch closed you should hear the fan running. If not you have a failed motor or motor control. Look at the back wall of the freezer section and see if there is a heavy frost build up. If so. you have a defrost system problem. Please post back with what you find and with the complete model number and I will try to walk you through the steps of checking everything.

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling
see if the compressor motor is running
The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

I had this same problem. You need to totally empty the fridge and freezer and allow it to defrost for 24 hours. Then put it back on and it will work. This happens if someone leaves the freezer door open and then it gets closed. The defrosted water freezes in the pipes and doesn't allow the cold air to move up into the fridge so the freezer gets even colder. This has happened to me twice!
