I couldnt find a diagram of this frig.
Some of the evap. fans run thu the defrost thermost ..u could try by-passing thermost and see if fan comes on... have you checked with volt meter if there was power at the fan motor?

Check to see if air is blowing into refrigerator compartment.If no air is blowing.It may be that the settings on your dials are not right.If they are and air is not blowing,your evaporator fan is not working,or may be obstructed.

If you are sure you have the right start relay, and are positive the start and run connections are correct, the compressor may be bad. There is an internal overload/overheat thermostat inside the compressor. If the motor windings are partially shorted out it will run for a little bit then stop. It will probably start after several hours when cooled down. The other possibility is that you have the start and run terminals reversed. If the start winding can't kick out after a few minutes it will overheat. As a final test, disconnect all wires from compressor. Plug in the box and turn it on. Make a test cord with a plug, wire and some alligator clips. One clip on one side and two clips on the other pole. Single clip goes to the common terminal, One of the other goes to the run. The last one is briefly touched to the run terminal. Just keep it there long enough for the compressor to start then remove it. Let it run for a few hours. It should cool the box down completely. It will run until you stop it as it's not using the thermostat in the box. If it works this way replace the relay again. If it stops by itself the compressor needs to be replaced. This is almost never worth it to fix.

I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.
Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.
