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.

You presumably refer to the interior air circulation fan? This usually doesn't operate continuously but runs for a time after the door has been open and with some fridges can be switched off.

If the fan motor has failed it should be possible to replace it but first it is best to know the motor has failed rather than the supply (timer, wiring, etc.)...

Hello, Sylvia -

The refrigerator drip pan may still be emanating the bad smell. If you did not remove it, poor out the standing water from the pan, and then clean it thoroughly, then that is probably the source of the bad smell.
