The fan and compressors at the rear of refrigerator comes on. The frezor side blows some air and is cooling fine. The 2 fans at the evaportive will not come on. The lower fan at the crisper drawer area comes on.I replaced the evaporative fan kit and they still will not come on .

This is what has happened. Due to the door being opened for so long moisture which is naturally in the air has collected on your freezer coils. What you need to do is turn the whole thing off for at least 24 hours. Open the doors and put some towels around it to let the frost melt out. All the air that gets cooled in your unit gets cooled by a fan that pulls air through those coils. Once the frost has melted out of them it should cool just fine.
There are two fans in most modern refrigerators; one that circulates the cooled air between the two compartments, another that pulls or blows air over the external coils under the cabinet.
You may have bet on the wrong one.
I assume the compressor is running since you indicate you have some cool air.
Check to make sure the compressor fan is running. This fan should be near the compressor. Its purpose is to pull room air across the coils and remove the heat from them. If this fan does not operate properly, the refrigerant will not be cycled properly. If the fan is not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor.
First, you must determine if the compressor is running. The compressor is located at the bottom of the unit in the rear. Feel for motor heat and slight vibration. If it is cool then the problem may be an inexpensive start relay. If the compressor is very hot, the start relay could also be the problem or the motor has seized. Find the wiring diagram in the rear of the unit to replace this relay which should be availible at your local refrigeration supplie house.
Check the back of you fridge and make sure the coils are clean. If you have access to a small air compressor, blow everything out and make sure the motor are is clean. The build up of dirt on the coils will not let the heat escape during the cooling process.
Could be a fan problem; some blow cold air, some just have the coil running throught the back inside. Yo will also get very extended life if you plase a very small fan blowing over the compressor if it does not have one.
