If any fans stop cooling stops. The fan inside the freezer will need to be examined for why it stopped or if the one below is stopped it to will need to be checked. I think your defrost timer is on the front of your refrigerator on floor behind the kick plate. If you can turn the timer clockwise until refrigerator starts or stops that may tell us the reason for these failures. Place your model in the model search feature below and choose one of many the same models. Look inside back of freezer wall after you unplug refrigerator and tell me if fan is stopped and if coils have ice or snow covering them.Then we will go from there.Click link below.

There are about four different versions of your model. If you like I will send you the manual and we will work together as this refrigerator is very complex. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Look at item 4 on this picture for location of the defrost timer. You will need to rotate it with a flat head screwdriver and you should hear a click to see if your compressor starts. On the first picture above about 0.5 inch from the top from the 12 o'clock position is the dial that you will need to rotate It should be mounted horzintally in the top of your food section. The dial could be white or black. It has 2 tabs on it and can only be rotated in the direction that the tabs would be engaged by a flat head screwdriver. Turning it backwards will result in having to replace the defrost timer straight away. So again rotate this dial and see if your compressor starts.
If it starts then you have either a bad defrost timer or 60 deg F thermostat in the freezer section coils.
If it does not start then you can have a bad compressor relay, run capacitor or the compressor itself has failed. If the compressor is hot and you hear a hum from the compressor for about 30- 45 seconds it could be any one of the 3 above.
I would be willing to go out on a limb here and say you most likely have a defrost circuit problem.
There is a remote possibility that you had a one time instance of the defrost timer sticking but on an older unit If it stuck once it will most likely stick again in the future.
