Been there, done that. You need to have a new computer board installed in the fridge near the top. Ours got hit by static lightning ang blew two of them in two years. When they go out, the defrost cycle fails and Ice builds up in the freezer in the back middle. Take the back vover off in the freezer and you'll see it packed with ice since the defroster is not getting the signal to defrost. order a new computer board, install it in the top of the fridge side, in the back, above all those controls on the back right side in a white case to hold the board. defrost the ice by using a hair dryer and letting all the water drain out and get it dry. Those PC boards do not like static at all

Have looked at the schematics for this cabinet and am unsure as to the location of both defrost thermostats as unclear on drawings. The purpose of the defrost thermostat is to overide the heater and end the defrost cycle, once the temperature on the evaporator is high enough (normally around 0'C). If you have two then one will probably control the heaters going off and the other may well control the fan, for coming back on. I.E. once the defrost has ended the second sensor will tell the fan when the coil is cold enough to come on, this prevents heat being pushed into the main area after a defrost cycle. If you feel competent enough then I would bypass the heater thermostat temporarily and see if the heaters kick in. The other thing to check is that you have a resistance across the two ends of the defrost heater. In my experience the heater is the most likely to fail, the sensor sometimes fail and the timers rarely fail. The age of your cabinet would suggest the heaters. Please do not leave the sensor bypassed as it performs an essential role. Hope this helps.

The recall reads (in part):
GE Consumer & Industrial places a very high priority on product quality and customer satisfaction and thus continuously assesses our product reliability. Recent analysis has discovered a potential problem with the main circuit board on a limited number of refrigerator models, which could lead to lower than anticipated life expectancy on that component. Therefore, if the main circuit board fails, GE Consumer & Industrial will replace this part free of charge to the consumer until further notice.
The models affected are side-by-side plastic liner, side-by-side metal liner, bottom freezer two door and bottom freezer French door. The models were produced between May 2005 and August 2006 (HH – RL serial range) and are included in this program.
Potential Additional Covered Parts:
Specific parts involving the failure of the main board are included in this program. These parts are limited to the following:
-Evaporator Fan failure, only if accompanied by a Main Board failure
-Dispenser Board failure, only if accompanied by a Main Board failure
