Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
ok on some of these model the fan runs threw the defrost thermostat, was there a lot of frost on the coils when you pull the panel?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes the coils were covered with frost and the gentalman I talk to last night . and we went through everything except the fan and I found that this morning
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
ok you need to replace the defrost thermostat, this is clipped to the top of the coils, you can test if its the problem by unplugging the refrigerator and cutting the two wires going to it, (far enough back so you can reconnect it if its not the issue,) leave yourself enough wire, strip the wires and connect them together, if the fan runs when you plug it back in and turn it on, replace the thermostat.
