Resolved Question:

I have a GE side by side refrigerator/freezer. This unit is 4 years old. There are multiple problems... not sure if they are related.

1). The freezer gets warm. It gets so warm the ice cubes start melting and meat thaws out. It will eventually get cold and run just fine for days.

2). The veggies in the crisper freeze sometimes

3). The water dispenser won't dispense water at times. I thought maybe it was freezing but the last time the freezer was warm the water dispenser didn't work so that blew my theory. Again this will work fine for days then stop for hours.
