There are two things that will typically cause this problem on this model and they are door alignment and a defrost problem.
If the fresh food door is dropped down below the freezer door it may not be hitting the door switch properly. In this case the refrigerator will turn the fans on and close the damper because it “thinks” the door is open. The fresh food section will not get cold because the damper is closed. If this is the case adjust the door up and it should go back to work.
If there is a defrost problem the back wall of the freezer will be covered with heavy frost. If this is the case the defrost heater is most likely the problem but sometimes the thermistor attached to the coils will cause this. This page will help GE Refrigerator Not Cooling
The fan motors can also cause this problem this page will help GE Refrigerator Fan Motor Diagnostics
