Question about GE Refrigerators
Is it a side by side? Do you have model number? Was the control board replaced because of this issue? Does the fan motor in freezer operate? Open freezer door and push in door switch to operate fan motor. If it is a side by side sometimes when the fan motor goes bad it damages the motherboard. Is their ice build up on back wall of freezer?

The ice maker won't work if the freezer is warmer than 17 degrees so that's not an issue till you get the freezer cold again. I would guess that your unit is stuck in the defrost cycle. This could be the defrost timer failing. See if you can find the defrost timer in your unit and advance it by hand if possible. http://www.partselect.com/PartSearchResults.aspx?modelnum=jcd2295hes&mfgmodelnum=&fkmfgid=1&hint=defrost

This is a fairly common problem with these types of refrigerators. The design is set to defrost every 12 hours and be down for 1 hour to allow ice to melt on coils. More often than not the ice never fully melts and creates a blockage in the coils and in turn slows air flow. You can remove the screws in the back wall of freezer unit and unsnap the ice maker plug to allow access to the coil. Gently tilt the back plate forward. You can then unplug the ref. and help it thaw with a blow drier. If you are not comfortable removing the back plate then you can just unplug the ref. and let it thaw on its own. this may take a while. try to remove as much ice as you can from the back of the freezer wall by hand and prop the door open for a couple of hours to ensure that all the ice melts. The rattling sound you are hearing is the fan blades hitting the ice that is built up around it. As a precaution I recommend that these type of refrigerators get manual defrost simply by unplugging about once a month for about two (2) hours. I hope that this will help you out with the melted ice cream. Good luck.

The problem can be temperature not set
properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is
getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked.
But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then
its weak compressor issue. Click the link below for more details:---
