Yes, the model number would have to be GSS25QFMC BB (with a "Q").

** Refrigerator and freezer shut down, intermittently , mimics a defrost cycle for hours, temperature in freezer goes higher than 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Even though there is no excessive frost or moisture on walls of freezer. Is this a motherboard problem ? **

Yours is one of GE's electronically control fridge models (unfortunately) and does have a "motherboard" (aka electronic control circuit board) which could possibly (or not) be the cause of your symptom. Unfortunately such a system can be difficult to diagnose. It you're lucky the circuit board will have visual signs of failure if it has failed.

GE GSS25QFMCBB Electronic Control

Early such models did have a problem with their thermistors (electronic temperature sensors) which could cause the control to act unusually. The original ones used to be bullet shaped with a rounded tip. If that is the style of the ones on your model, I would suggest they they be replaced to the current flat-tipped replacements (see the following link).
