I unplugged the unit to let it defrost. After a day I plugged it back in and it seemed to be working. However, after a couple of days the problem was back, the freezer side is cold while the fridge side is not.

You have a failure in your automatic defrost system.   Test evap thermistor, defrost heater, defrost limit, drainage and mainboard

An easy test for DIYers is to disassemble the freezer and see if the defrost heater is schmutzed up and burned out.  If it is, go with the obvious problem and fix it first.  Part number: AP3183311

Part number: AP3183311

 

Better yet, use the new double heater for better defrosting Part number: AP4355467

I think that double heater is shorter, for the 22 cu.Ft models. I don't think they interchange.

I think you're right, vee8.  I've used the double heater to replace a single heater in a GSS23 before when you look up the defrost heater, they specifically call out the new double as the replacement for the single.  You'd think the GSS23 would be narrower than the GSS25.  I'll never understand the mind of GE when it comes to their models.
