Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running.
Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. stopped up? clear? ice in one spot . frost everywhere.




The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's open.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost heater, defrost thermostat.Refrigerator Repair Guide: How To Fix a Refrigerator - ACME HOW TO.com

If the heater and thermostat are ok itíll be the control part 801 on diagram 9. Replacement parts for GE GSS25LGMFBB | AppliancePartsPros.com

Default New Information... with pics..

woodchuckie Thank you for the reply. I started to take apart the back of the fridge and found a burn spot on the motherboard. Could this be the problem? If so, Do you have any suggestions on where to get the part? The fridge has no ice, no frost, no cool air any longer. just hot. Thank you for your assistance..

I can't be sure about weather or not the new motherboard will fix your problem. You can buy it at the previous link I posted.

I would check a few other things first.
Is the compressor running? If not check the starter relay.
If yes, is it warm etc. If not check compressor.
If compressor is warm, is condenser fan near the compressor running.
Since you have no cooling I suspect the compressor isn't working.
