The fan has ceased to rotate as you said. get to it and attempt to lube the shaft bushings while spinning it by hand (power off)

My freezer is freezing and not cooling


when it freezes u usually get cold air? I suspect u have a bad defrost terminator which has stopped the defrost from working and u get ice build up which then stops the fan from operating correctly and then u get no cold air in fridge? may also have a bad defrost timer?

My refrigerator is not getting cold


Is the freezer freezing? Do you hear a fan motor running inside the freezer? If the freezer fan is working and the freezer is still getting cold, do you see allot of frost on the back wall of the freezer?

Freezer not cooling at all - t-stat or compressor would be where to check next

No fan running in freezer and freezer is cold - bad evaporator fan motor.

If fan is running and you have heavy frost on the back wall of freezer - unit is not defrosting. could be defrost timer or defrost t-stat

Fan cycling low and high


The freezer fan slows down due to the refrigerator section being at the desired setting but the freezer section still needing coolant . If the refrig section needed more coolant , the fan would speed up , forcing more air into the refrig section .
After replacing the heater , it could be in the defrost cycle . The thermistors tell the main control board , " hey , we're freezing , turn on some heat " , in which the heater comes on and defrosts the coils , until behind the rear freezer panel , can get up to 140 degrees . As it gets this hot , the frozen food in the freezer , is what keeps the freezer cold . After defrost , the fan comes on and blows the residual heat into the refrig sectio , until the coils get cold again . So , if the refrig section warms up temporarily , it's normal .
