Question about Microwave Ovens
Sorry to hear about your problem.
Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

For Complete Defrosting
Turn the temperature control to the
OFF position and unplug the freezer.
Remove all food and place it in
corrugated boxes, insulated bags,
picnic coolers, etc. Use towels and
newspapers for insulation as needed.
With the door/lid open, use pans of
hot water to speed loosening of frost.
Remove large pieces before they melt.
Chest models have a defrost water drain
at the front.
NOTE: Water may drip from the back flange of
the lid cover during defrosting. This is normal.
Ice builds up in the lid insulation when the lid is
open for adding or removing food, and melts
during the defrosting operation.
Sponge excess water from the bottom
of the freezer as it collects to prevent
After defrosting, clean the inside of the
freezer (see Care and Cleaning).
Replace the drain plug inside the
cabinet and the cap on the defrost
drain. Fold over and dry the gasket
on the hinge side of the lid.
Plug in the freezer. Return the
temperature control to its previous
position and return food to the freezer.
Hopefully with this information you can find the drain. If not go to www.ge.com and click on service and support to download your manual. (Model number required)
