Freezer working refrig not!
Ordered and replaced defrost timer as this seems to be the problem most of the time. Installed and still no refrig. Waited 24 hrs to get on cycle and still no refrig. Noticed that freezer fan is not turning and circulating air to refrig.
How do you test fan motor to se if it is bad.

I removed fan and checked voltage with refrig on med setting and got 121V. This leads me to think fan is getting voltage but not running. Ordering new fan motor. Am I doing the right thing?

Yes.
Since the fan is getting the correct voltage it should run.
