Replaced the defrost bulb and the defrost sensor. Temp reached zero in the freezer but now are creeping back up again, they are reading 6 degrees. Any suggestions on what I can check next? Refrigerator side appears to be working fine.

Remove the freezer back panel and check the evaporator frost pattern, should be uniformly frosted with light frost.

Light uniform frost about 2/3 thirds of the way up, how long after restart should I wait to check it? I have the ability to run diagnostics on it but do not know the codes for my GE. I can entered the self check mode, change the numbers to some codes that I found, but I do not have a "hold" button to start the test. What do I push? What tests should I run?

You might have an intermittent condensing fan motor or a compressor going bad. You should always have a fully frosted evaporator.
Remove the motherboard in the back and look for bad solder connections under the big power relay.
