Sounds like contamination inside the controller. Unfortunately this usually means replacing the controller.

Most likely a thermostat that’s bad or a fan that’s not working or a defrost problem

Since I don't know what does work I am kind of shooting in the dark.
Does the ac heater get hot ?
The spark ignitor is part of the control board. But won't work?
I assume that you have a user manual but I am including a link to download one.

Note that there are three fuses. B (12V control) and C (120V Heater) on the control board and a thermofuse L located on the stack.
If L is good and everything else is good there should be 12VDC on J1 and at Fuse B

The motor should cut in and out as controlled by the thermostat. Assuming your freezer is actually working and is cooling down, try the following. If you turn the thermostat down you should hear a click and the motor should stop. If there is no click before it gets to the lowest setting then either the thermostat is faulty (so won't cut out) or the freezer has not dropped to a temperature that is registered by the thermostat (it is too warm). A faulty thermostat is indicated by excessive freezing because it doesn't know when to stop the cooling process. A freezer that is too warm means the cooling process is ineffective and may, for example, require re-gassing.

You might try resetting the unit. The E5 on some models means power failure ... which may have been triggered when you unplugged it to defrost it?
Anyway ... to reset ... press at the same time ... both the "Power Freeze" button on the right and the "Power Cool" button on the left ... and hold for 8 seconds ... that should reset it and have your display go back to normal.
Good luck on your troubleshooting

Not a lot you can do about this. Unplug it and wait about 5 minutes and see if it works when you plug it back in. The unit is controlled by a micro computer and could have been damaged by the power surge. You may claim it on your insurance though

Put it in the off position. Turn the knob to the right. If the refrigerator comes on then continue to turn the knob to the right until you get to the temperature you want.The more you turn to then right colder it should be. Turning it back makes it warmer.

It looked like your model does NOT have an external ice/water control panel which has caused beeping problems on some models.
For your model I would try the following....
Door Alarm
The main cause of a beeping GE unit is an open refrigerator door. Some models are equipped with an internal door alarm, which trips when the door remains open for 3 minutes or longer.
One way to check this .... put your smartphone in the refrigerator on video mode and close the door. The light should go off with the door shut. If the video shows that the light stayed on when the door was closed ... then it reinforces that something is wrong with the switch/alarm. Repeat video for the freezer.
Door Seal
If beeping persists after the freezer or refrigerator door is closed, the door seals may be blocked or so dirty that the internal door alarm is tripped. The seals can be cleaned with a soft cloth and warm, soapy water. Also, an item inside the refrigerator may be preventing the door from fully closing.
Cooling System
Reactivating the refrigerator's cooling system includes a beeping noise. When the refrigerator is off, the "Off/Off" light appears on the door display. When the "Adjust Freezer" and "Energy Saver" buttons are held down for approximately 3 seconds at the same time the beep sounds and the "Off/Off" indicator disappears. Hold the "Ice Off" and "Freezer" buttons to activate the cooling system inside of the fresh food compartment. A beep signals the system is activated. The beeping should stop after the cooling system turns on. If it fails to stop, try unplugging the power cord to reset the connection.
Power
The GE's internal door alarm can get stuck. Try unplugging the refrigerator for about 10 seconds and then plug it back in. If the beeping continues, the internal door alarm might be broken or defective. Contact the manufacturer or a technician for further assistance. One way to check this .... put your smartphone in the refrigerator on video and close the door. The light should go off with the door shut. If the video shows that the light stayed on when the door was closed ... then it reinforces that something is wrong with the switch/alarm.

Good luck on your troubleshooting!

Food freezing in fresh food compartment is most likely a bad thermostat/ control board, or a damper that’s open too much.
