I first replaced the fan, because it wouldn't run, then replaced the defrost thermostat, because I didn't know how to test it, and the defrost control board, because it was all I thought was left. Turns out it was the defrost heater. The control board senses current flow through the heater and switches the fan off. With an open element the fan won't work. This can be tested with an Ohm meter. The thermostat will test open at room temperature, this is normal.
