GE Profile Side by Side doesn't cool at all

About a 2 weeks ago we noticed the fridge not cooling as well as we liked. It gradually got worse. Then for two days it worked perfectly. Then the temperature on the fridge side started rising but the freezer was only a little warmer than normal. I removed the panel in the back of the freezer and noticed ice and frost on the lower side of the coils. I thawed them out with a hair dryer. The temperature continued to rise to the point that it seemed nothing was working. It had stopped cooling completely. I removed the back panel to expose the compressor and motherboard. The compressor did not seem to be running right. Sometimes it would start and sometimes it wouldn’t. The voltage from the motherboard to the inverter board was fluctuating rapidly from 4 to 6 volts DC. The winding’s in the compressor seemed to check out okay. If I unplugged the fridge then plugged it back in the compressor would sometimes start and sometimes not. I replaced the inverter board and no change. I replaced the motherboard and the DC voltage was just under 6 volts dc and no longer fluctuated. The compressor and fan seemed to start normally but was unusually quiet. I let it run for 24 hours and it did not cool at all. No frost, ice, or anything. The compressor still doesn’t seem to be working properly
