I have the same problem, I am not hearing anything running either, but the lights are working. Everything on the top is warmer than what is on the bottom. Any help would be appreciated.

When the refrigerator is running ( cooling mode ) the defrost timer contacts prevents any power from getting to the defrost heater. When the defrost timer turns off the power to the compressor and fan motor(s) the power is then redirected to the defrost system. The defrost timer motor
During a defrost cycle, the defrost heater causes the metal alloy in the switch to warm and as it does it curls back and breaks the circuit. As the metal cools, it makes a closed circuit again. A defective thermostat can prevent the defrost heater from coming on or allow it to overheat which could result in heat damage or fire.
The defrost thermostat is located near the defrost heater and is wired in series. It is usually located at the back of a side by side freezer, behind the freezer back wall of a top freezer or under the floor. It will be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, icemaker and the inside rear or bottom panel of the freezer. At room temperature the defrost thermostat is an open circuit ( no continuity ) and when cooled down the defrost thermostat closes the circuit ( has full continuity ) to allow the defrost heater to come on.

The temperature setting in the fridge section of your refrigerator is generated by diverting a part of the cold air generated in the freezer. This is done with the help of a fan and is controlled with a thermistor. If the temperature doesn't drop low enough then either the fan is faulty and it will have to be replaced
or it's not properly commanded because either the thermistor is faulty
or the control board itself has failed and it continuously activates the defrost resistance
