Try cleaning your condenser coil at the back of the refrigerator. If there is constant ice built at the evaporator coil which you have to defrost manually then you have a defrost timer issue

Fridge side will not cool if fan in freezer doesn't work. Also freezer temps will be marginal.

Sounds like your defrost cycle has failed. Since the unit is running fine for a while before warming up, this can rule out your circulating fan also when the ice begins to build up, the sound you most likely hear is the fan blades hitting the ice on the coil. Your defrost cycle is operated by a defrost timer or your motherboard depending on the age of your refrigerator. When your refrigerator goes into defrost, it turns on an electric heater that melts the ice from your coil in the freezer. When your defrost time or electric heater fails, it allows ice to build up on the coil in your freezer which blocks airflow which causes your cooling compartments to not maintain temperature. Hope this gives you an idea what to look for and a guide on where to start looking

It was made in 2010. You will have to contact the GE support center regarding dimensions. Below is a link for that contact plus a link to a manual.

Hello Jeanneary9,

Proper AIR CIRCULATION is critical to the
proper operation of the unit as a whole...
(I prefer my milk ICY cold... but fluid).

First thing to do is inventory your air vents
inside the FREEZER area... to ASSURE that
NONE are blocked (from open)...

Then inspect the air vent INTO the refrigerator
area that NONE of those are blocked (closed)

Most modern refrigerators give preference
to the milk storage shelf...

(first try a full 3 day DEFROST... (unloaded
with doors wide open... Then set to original settings
(three more days)))...

Only then you are looking at (sorting) a
DEFECTIVE thermostat...!!

I use (rather inexpensive) TAYLOR ($6 - USA)
refrigerator thermometers to regulate temperatures...
and STAY AWAY from "adjusting" as much as
Possible... as it can take UP TO 3 days (72 hours)
for the refrigerator to stabilize...

Hope this helps

You would be best off also changing The terminating thermostat and the heater. That will pretty much guarantee a fix.
