Checked the electrical circuits to find out if there was power to the fan motor. there was and the motor would not run. Further testing found the motor DOA. Pulled freezer compartment apart, removed the Ice maker, unscrewed the four screws that hold the evaporator cover on the back of the compartment, and removed mounting bracket for the evaporator fan / motor. there is a two wire molex connector that you pull apart, two wires on the compartment light and everything is free. Swap out the motor and reverse the procedure.
