I have had 4 GE techs try to solve this problem. 2 months ago I noticed the freezer temp was very low (-19) and fridge temp was getting high (40-50 degrees). Long story short, the techs all had a different theory with a potential air leak as the common denominator. The damper in the freezer behind the ice maker would ice up which would prevent the cold air from circulating in the freezer. The first tech said it was the door spring in the fridge (which was missing) was causing air to circulate incorrectly. So we fixed that. Then the problem immediately returned. 2nd tech said it needed to be defrosted. So we did that - lost everything basically since the fridge was at 50 degrees. Defrosted it for 48 hours, then 2 days later at full temp, the ice started returning in the same place (back upper left quadrant of the fridge). It alternates between dripping water and ice drops. 3rd tech came out and spayed the gaskits saying there may be an air leak. Defrosted again for 48 hours. Again, problem returned. 4th tech (I'm grumpy by this point) is the senior tech and said there was a small adhesive door seal that shouldn't be there that was preventing the door from closing tightly. He also said the fan was slightly bent which could interfere with the circulation. Fixed that, removed the seal and was told to defrost again. Did that for 3 days while out of town. Came home, turned on the fridge, got it back to temp and guess what - ice is back. Temp is OK (0 and 34-36) but it's only a matter of time.

I hate this fridge and can't afford a new one. Will be remodling the kitchen in a year or so and getting new appliances hopefully (not GE at this point!). I don't want to put any $ into trying to fix an air leak that could or couldn't be causing the problem. Any other suggestions?

This is a built in monogram - very expensive (came with the house) but not efficient either in energy or in space layout. Thanks for your help.
