This issue could be because of three different parts in the fresh food side.
Here is a link to your units fresh food side parts diagram.

Look at part number 336 temperature sensor....tells the control what the temp is and it adjust the damper door part number 367
so we must determine is it the damper that is getting the signal from the control board but is unable to adjust to the controls command because it is stuck,broken,or the motor is bad.
Or is the control getting the info from the temp sensor but is unable to relay the info to the damper door.
Or the temperature sensor ( also called a thirmister) is not relaying the temperature correctly or not at all to the control board (part number 390)
On this link you will be able to check the thirmisters value off of the mother board that is located on the very back panel of your refrigerator.(the backside that is against your wall.)
It will be the last link on the procedure....called a tech sheet. This is the Mother Board print.

GE refrigerator non defrost issue with Mother... This procedure will define the issue with a non defrost issue in all GE refrigerators controlled by
If the Thirmisters check good then you will need to get to the damper door and check to see if you are getting power to it. If you are then the motor is bad ...but first check the door itself for damage or blockage. If the motor/damper is getting power and the mechanics are good on it then you will need to look at the control board.Look for burnt marks ....but if the other parts are good then most proably it is the temperature control board.
