The fan won't run if the unit is in a "defrost" cycle. It turns the fan and compressor off so the heater can defrost the coils. If the evap fan isn't running and the compressor isn't running then you may be stuck in a defrost cycle. See if you have a defrost timer that can be manually advanced (looks like a screw head that can only turn clockwise direction). It could be located in the frige section on the roof area. Usually a small hole mixed in with other screw holes that you will have to look up into and see the clock dial screw head. If you find that, manually turn the screw (it will click as notches go by) until you can hear the compressor and fan turn on. If that happens you likely have a bad defrost timer. If you have an "adaptive" defrost unit it will be a small circuit board that controls the defrost cycle and you will have to replace the board.

The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.

9 times out of ten, when the freezer portion works, and the refrigerator portion doesn't, it is the evaporator fan that is the problem. I am not familiar with that model, so I do not know where the fan is located. But there is a fan that blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge portion. Usually, a fan blade is just stuck, and just needs to be repositioned or the bearing the motor spins on could be frozen or rusty. I little household oil usually does the trick, or you might need a new fan motor.
Another possible cause is the ice that can build up. If there is ice blocking the air's path it will have the same result. You said you had defrosted the unit, so this is not likely in your case

Your refrigerator's cool is provided by your freezer section through a damper - there should not be excessive frost on the cooling coils - the most common problem is a defrost timer - are you absolutely sure the noise you hear is the defrost this is the first thing to check, defrost control and its components, is it properly shutting off or stuck on during operation - the next thing to check is for possible sealed system problems / small leaks, door gasket seals, etc.
The fact that it started to work once you manually defrosted is the key here - an over forsted evap will cause the problems you describe most commonly - so have your defrost system checked completly and properly - that should solve the problem. followed by checking door gaskets, damper and sealed system - if only part of the coils are frosted as opposed to the entire surface, that usually a clue to sealed system leak - yes 10C is quite warm for a refrigerator. It should be between 34F-40F, optimal is 34F. And freezer section no warmer than 10F, optimal at 0F (-18C)
