The reversing valve that reverses the flow of refrigerant to heat the evaporator plate is stuck and will need to be replaced. This is not a DIY repair as it requires working with the sealed refrigeration system. It will require the use of very specialized equipment and training. This repair can be expected to cost about $350 + parts and take several hours to complete. A GE technician may be scheduled by calling 1-800-GE-CARES.

I can check new prices but they are usually about $1000-1500. However, at 15 years old, it may be time to look at replacing.....
