My GSHS5KGXCCSS fridge started having issues with dispensing water and ice. When the compressor (at least I think it's the compressor) is running actively, everything is fine. But when it's off, the water will not come out and the front display just shows the "actual temperature" on the display. I have to open the doors to get the temperature up a little bit, until the compressor kicks in. Then water/ice dispenser starts working again.

Any ideas on what I should troubleshoot first?

The problem is the motherboard when it does that.

Here's the motherboard for your model you can order:
WR55X10942P Main Control Board


Let us know how it goes.
