There are 3 fans in this unit. One high up in the back panel for defrost (which should seldom run), and two inside the box with the LED's that divide the compartment into upper and lower areas. All are interchangeable. Replacement parts are available through Sears Parts Direct.
If you intend to do the repairs yourself, make sure the cooler is unplugged when working on it. To gain access to the two fans in the divider box, remove the wine racks to give you more room, and just remove the four screws holding the top of the divider box on and lift it off. One of the fans is directly behind the PC board and the other is inside the 8x10 foam box to the rear of it. Be careful with this foam box, it is delicate. To gain access to the fan inside, use a thin bladed knife or razor blade to delicately separate the top from the sides.
Before replacing fans, try tracing the leads from the fans to the PC board and swapping the plugs for the fans on the PC board and plugging the cooler back in to see if any of the fans are working. Make sure you restore the plugs to their original positions. If all three fans are not working, the problem may be the PC board or the thermocouples.
replacement fans are on ebay, you need to measure the fan, how many wires. etc or do a search of the fan number that is on the fan itself. as long as the fan is the same size from fixing hole top left to fixing hole bottom right and the right voltage and wiring it will work as a cooler fan in the device.
You can solder the two open ends of the wires/base together. Generally, it doesn't hurt at all to have the yellow wire not connected. As long as the fan is still running, you will be fine. The yellow wire gives information about the fan RPM. You just won't be alerted if the fan stops working.
