I have looked at the posts. Mine is a little different.

My crisper is turning into a freezer which also causes the water line to freeze. Top of the fridge is warmer than the bottom. On the freezer side the bottom is cold but the ice maker is hot, there is water in the unit but it will not freeze. Help

Turn the ice maker off or unplug its wire harness and watch the refrigerator for a few hours. Put more attention on the cold air flow through the damper control (#426 on the diagram). Post the results.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for General Electric GSL25JFPHBS Refrigerator | AppliancePartsPros.com

I am having pretty much the same issue as Charles. My bins in the fridge side are freezing, and the freezer is not freezing on the top part. I took the plate out in the back of the freezer and saw the coils are frozen over in the middle third, but not so much frozen over in the top and bottom thirds. I have a GE side by side, model GSS25TSRE. Any tips would be appreciated, and I will unplus the icemaker assembly like you suggest and look at the damper control.

You refrigerator has a different design compared to the one owned by Charles. The problem you described has nothing to do with the ice maker because yours is not hot. Watch the damper control and post the results.

After doing some searching it appears it may be the thermistor or the thermostat. Is there a way to check the thermistors, or should I replace them since they are relatively cheap anyway (compared to a service call)?

The best way is to diagnose exact problem and then fix it. Guessing is not the way I'd like.

So far the problem with your refrigerator can be a bad damper control or a faulty defrost system.

Unhappy

Gene,

I checked the Fridge several times this weekend, with the ice maker off.

When the Fridge door is closed (holding the button) the Damper stays open all the time. When the fridge is open it closes. When I left the damper unpluged the water despenser works after is thaws out. Tried plugging in the damper and turning on the power to the ice maker, still no ice and the water line froze back up.

Gene,

P.S. the air flow going from the damper to the Frezzer did not seem to fast.
