Sounds like you did all the right things. Consider taking it back to the store where you purchased the unit or call for warranty service. There should be no good reason for you have to to pay extra.

Moved our kenmore 69292 from my house to my mom's, let it sit 24-hours because we had it on its side, placed it in mom's kitchen yesterday, plugged it in to start cooling the food we put in it, last night...

hi Kristen,although it should be left for 24hours,it will take at least that and more to get back to a level temperature,just leave it on rapid cool(if fitted)then check after 48 hours.

My evaporator fan dont work on my fridge

You may need to advance your timer so you fridge will start cooling. If it's in defrost neither will work because the defrost thermostst has to be cold enough to close the switch inside it.
Please rate this solution.

it might have got stuck in defrost look for the defrost timer if it is a older fridge you can manuley turn it out of defrost to buy you time to getting a new timer
