Good evening! My name is ***** ***** I can help you with your issue today. As for the fan itself, that would definitely be worth fixing if you just need to replace the fan. The frost build up could have caused the motor to overwork which can cause it to fail but just so are definitely checking the fan correctly, it only runs if the door is shut. So make sure you shut the door for 30 seconds and then open the door quickly to see if the fan is running. If not, then below is a link to the fan motor inside the refrigerator you'd need to order for your model number. The fan motor is only about $58.
