If you have a freezer door switch, it might be bad, not suppling voltage to the evaporator fan motor.

Your evaporator fan motor gets it's current throught the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. One or both are bad or a wire got disconnected. Pull freezer panel and check.

thank you for answering my post
i check out defrost thermostat, i believe its good. put everything back together.to test defrost heater . started refrige i hour ago.decided to let it cool first. fan is still not working. put in freezer seperate fan to help circlate air. freezer is down to 20 degrees and refrigerator at 70 right now.defrost timer " which i just replace" is moving forward. my question is i'm concern about compressor, i hear it humming not a normal run sound.when i place my hand on top of compressor cannot keep on passed the count of 5 without burning. i have another fridge that is working great. roper same basic style. it is running in cooling mode right now and i can keep my hand on it without being burned. will i harm refrigerator buy let it run? 1 was trying to get a full cyle to rule out defrost timer,defrost burner, and defrost thermostat.
thanks patty

If your compressor is hot, you might have a bad condenser fan.
