I did check for faults and all I got was a u2 code. I pulled the rotor in the bottom and it looked intact but I did not compare its thickness to the top one. Top unit is working fine.

That is the correct connector to jump the defrost system. If the heater doesn't come on you know either the heater or high limit thermostat is bad. I don't personally see a lot of the thermostats bad, but I just did one yesterday and was glad I had started stocking that part. It has a lot higher temperature than most high limits, 140 degrees, so you can't use any old thermostat. If you get in there and it is the heater circuit, check the thermistor anyways and if it has black around where the wires enter change it out anyways because they are prone to failure and it will save you time in the future.

 

Might as well check the freezer thermistor also and change it if it is the old style. It is the one down by the drain port.

You can defrost and it will definitely freeze over again. You may get a week or two, depending on how often you open the fridge doors and introduce moist air. I usually just throw a towel under the heater covering the drain hole and go to town with the steamer. People go about testing different ways on these GE's, I personally always test the evap thermistor from the motherboard while the frost is still covering it. Then I will pull the power plug on the bottom of the board and jump the line and defrost on the connector. If the heater comes on, I know I have an issue with thermistor and/or board and the heater circuit is good.

You can pull the back wall cover off without killing the power. Just watch the light bulb and don't singe your skin off as your pulling up(experience speaking). Get a pic of the evaporator frost pattern and post it here. You will probably have to post to a file sharing service and post the link to the image here unless you upgrade your membership.

 

Sounds like you might have a problem with the damper if you feel no air coming through. I am not sure of the algorithm that tells it when to open. Since you said your freezer temps are high, it may be closed by design to get the freezer to temp first. I will let another expert on here chime in if they know the answer to that.
