Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a GE side by side refrigerator, model GSL85JFPHBS. It sstopped working altogether last month. first the refrigerator stopped working, two day later the freezer part stopped working. I had someone come out and look at it. He cleaned the back part of the unit, and it worked GREAT for 2 weeks. Now the bottom part of the refrigerator is working and is cold, the top part is warm. I checked to make sure the coils were still clean. Any ideas?

I have live in my current residence for 2 years. It came with appliances such as my maytag plus side by side refrigerator. It worked perfectly up until about the last 2 months.

As I was cleaning out the unit it suddenly started working again and has worked for about a month. Now it has again suddenly stopped working.

My Kenmore side by side is not cooling the refrigerator. The freezer works fine. About 3 months ago I had the same problem which I solved by letting it sit for 24 hours. Everything melted and the fan then could blow cool air to the refrigeration side. I am noticing again that there is a build up of ice on the inside back coils. is there a defrost unit that could be out which is why I had the first problem but now the same thing again. What is the expected repair?
