I arrived home from a long day at work and went to grab a cold one from the fridge and noticed that they weren't as cold as they should be :(. I opened the freezer door and found a pool of water where the ice used to be :drowning:. After transferring everything to my big freezer and coolers I got behind the fridge and started removing panels. The condenser coil wasn't too dirty but I cleaned it anyway and I check the main board to see if it was a crispy black color but that also look OK. After a while I heard the compressor kick on and it started cooling again. When I last check this morning the freezer was -6°F and the fridge was around 40°F.

Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to what I should check next and how to check it? Is there a service manual available for the GE STS22ICMBRWW Top-Freezer Refrigerator?

Thanks.

Not sure about the temp in the freezer section and there was no noticeable frost buildup. The temp in the fridge section was close to 50°F.

Checked on it yesterday evening after work and things appear to be operating within normal temp range. Freezer section -4°F and fridge section 37°F - 40°F.

Just keep an eye on it, you fan could be starting to fail as well as the motherboard. If it starts to fail again see if the fan in the freezer is running and the compressor

Well I hope everyone likes happy endings. :bananadance:The fridge stopped cooling again so I decided to order a new control board assembly (aka...motherboard). The part arrived on Jan 13th. Installed the board that evening and it has been working great ever since. It's great to have individual ice cubes and cold beer again.
:cheers:

Thanks for the advise appl.tech.29501
