Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Does the fan turn off if you open or close the door at all?

no it does not

OK so the only thing that would cause the fan to run all the time whether the door is opened or closed is the display board itself. Unfortunately the relay on the display board is stuck and it's sending power all the time even though it shouldn't be. Below is a link to the display board you'll need to order for your model number. The part is quite expensive at about $135 so it may not be worth repairing, but that's completely up to you.
