Do you have the model number please.

Ok without a model number im unable to check if the part is still availble on this.

But if its getting to cold in the fridge section then its either the thermostat if its a thermostat controled or the air damper if electronic. As if its elelctronic controled then theres an air damper in the fridge that opens up to allow the cold air to enter the fridge. If this fails then it stay open so it then gets too cold and causes this fault here.

But if its mechnical controled then its going to be the thermostat as this isnt controling the temperture in there.

But to be honest ou can normally still get ge parts on older appliances so i would think this can still be repaired here for you as i dont think there will be an issue getting parts for this still.
