Very simple and common fix. The refrigerator cools by stealing air from the freezer section so if the freezer section is working, then the issue will never be a major issue. You have already done all the inspecting needed. You determined that the fan back inside the freezer isn't running and that fan is what pushes air up to the refrigerator so the refrigerator can cool. All you need to do is replace the fan motor and you'll be good to go again. Below is a link to the fan motor for your model. CLICK HERE for fan motor We are on the honor system here.
