Question about Microwave Ovens
The problem is most likely the temperature control circuit board up front, replace the circuit board, u will need to find out the model to do this, it may be on a tag at back of fridge.

The fan at the bottom of the of the fridge is called the 'condenser fan'. That fan should be working while the fridge is plugged-in or turned on because it will affect the functionality of the fridge including the temperature inside of it.
The things that you could do to fix that is either check the wiring (if everything's properly connected) or replace the motor.
You need to refer to the user manual of the fridge to see the exact model number or it's better to contact the manufacturer for assistance or for second opinion.
Hope it helps and have a great day!

If your refrigerator is turned on and the compressor is running your freezer fan should be running unless the fan motor is bad.
To take a look at the fan motor.
1. Unplug the refrigerator.
2. Open the freezer door.
3. Clean the freezer out.
4. Remove ice maker, if you have one in the freezer.
5. Remove the back panel inside the freezer.
If you have a meter you can check to see if you have power to the fan motor, but like I said if your refrigerator is on and the compressor is running that fan should be running to, unless it's bad.
If the freezer is not defrosting there could be frost build up around the fan keeping it from turning, but your freezer will be a bit warm too if that is the case.
You will be able to check for frost build up around the fan once you take the back panel off so you can see the fan motor.
Replace the fan motor and that should correct the problem.
Warning: If the condenser fan is not running then the compressor will overheat and go out on overload
