The bearings on the condensor fan motor are dry. You can attempt to lubricate the motor with a parifin based oil using either Union 76 "Turbine Oil" or a product called ZOOM-Spout turbine Oiler that is available in most hardware and appliance parts stores. See this link for examples of the oiler: http://www.google.com/search?q=Zoom+Spout+turbine+Oil&hl=en&safe=off&pwst=1&rls=com.microsoft:en-ph&prmd=ivns&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&ei=sqPZTcivKISEvAPOv-G_Bw&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=image&resnum=3&ved=0CCoQzAMwAg&biw=1003&bih=587
Do what you can to clean off the bearings and armature shaft then lubricate with the oil.
Most of the time lubrication will snap a tired fan out of running slow. On the hard molded motors (encased) lubrication takes much longer as you have to lubricate and wait for the oil to reach the lower bearing deep inside the housing. It is ok to oil from the top and let it run to the lower bearing. It will not hurt the fan. I place the fan on a paper towel for as long as I can and wait for the exvess to drain off before re-installing the motor. On the non-encased motors you can remove the bearings and clean the motor shaft and the bearing then lubricate reassemble and lubricate again.
If your using an external fan... it is OK to use the refrigerator while your waiting for the oil in the motor to drip out. Just make sure there is a 15 minute pause each time you remove power or the compressor will not re-start properly.

Start with the easiest possible problem to solve. Clean it. Not the inside, not the front door; clean the outside, the underside, the back side, the compressor area.
A fridge does not produce cold. It moves heat from the inside to the outside. Step one is to make sure that heat can be released into your kitchen verses sitting in a layer of insulation.

The ventilation fan that circulates the COLD air from the evaporator coils could get clogged with frost and so could be jammed. Also the wires to the fan can be worn out due to the frost. If so check if the defrost timer works to switch the heater to remove the frost. Also the check if the compressor is shut down by the timer /thermostat . If the heaters are not working, check continuity of the heaters. Please check this link for tips to work.
To start a check shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off. If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
So attempt to test using a multi-meter / clamp tester from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
