Re: fan not working
If this is an older refrigerator it is possable that either the condenser fan or the evaporator fan is worn out. If a fridge has been turned off with the door closed the evaporator fan shaft will rust and stop running. The symptoms of stop and starting of the fan leads me to think that the fan needs replaced. Still yet we will need more Q&A to help you on this problem.

Under the hood should be a fuse box with a relay marked for the fan. Remove the relay and see if the fan stops running. It's possible that the relay latched and is stuck. There should be another relay in the panel that is the same as the fan relay. Try swapping them. If the fan continues to run, there could be a short underneath the fuse box (Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep were known for their fuse boxes corroding and shorting), or it's a possibility that the engine computer is telling the fan to run even when off indicating a bad computer. I would lean toward the fuse box however.
It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.
I gather that it is the outdoor fan motor that runs a bit then stops.
Fan motors that stop by themselves are overheating and going into self-protect. The fact that you replaced the motor and capacitor opens up a whole world of "which wire is in the wrong place". I could do this if I could see it, but I can't see it. You're probably going to wind up calling a service man to sort out the wiring.
I have the same thing, mine is the cooling fan for the lamp. If the sound continues for a short time after you turn off the TV then this is the most likely cause as the cooling fan will continue to run for a short time to cool off the bulb. I have looked into replacing mine, the part runs around $50 but I can't say yet how easy it is to replace yet.
You may have a serious issue with the wiring harness inside the refrigerator. You will need to have the technician come back out and check the continuity of the wires leading from the control board to the fan checked out. If there is no continuity, it is not repairable.
