Here are your parts

I cannot find any tech info on this unit so do not know how the fan is wired in.
then took out the defrost thermostat and I checked it with Ohm meter nothing then I put ice around it and it snapped open checked with Ohm meter and it showed it was ok I checked heater and it read resistant
Neither of these should effect the fan.

Did you check the 120 volts with the fan running or was it disconnected.
My guess is that both motors ran without much turning power that the 120 volts is dropping once a load is on it.
Check it with the fan connected.
If it drops then there is probably a bad connection/wire somewhere in the unit.
On most older units the compressor, the condenser and the evaporator fan are wired in parallel since the compressor and it's fan seem to run OK I am guessing that only the evaporator fan has the bad connection.
With luck you have the wiring diagram and can trace it.
