Freezer worked but the refrigerator was not cooling
Toddler left the fridge door open for an undocumented amount of time. The freezer was operating perfectly but the refrigerator was not cooling. After some research I ordered the part needed and went to work. Process was simple, just keep track of the fans mounting bracket. I installed it upside down and the holes didn't align with the back wall freezer cover.

Step 1: Unplug the fridge
Step 2: Gloves and safety goggles
Step 3: Tools - Socket Set and screw drivers. Hammer and chisel for the ice build up.
Step 4: Remove the back wall of the freezer carefully
Step 5: Remove fan and motor housing, unplug Hot, Neutral and ground wire from motor
Step 6: Drink a beverage
Step 7: Remove fan and motor from housing. You will have to reuse the rubber gaskets/washers so do not dispose.
Step 8: Install new motor and connect the hot, neutral and ground. Do not overtighten the screws connecting the motor housing to the mounting bracket.
Step 9: Before mounting the bracket, plug in the fridge to confirm the fan is operating.
Step 10: Put everything back and have another beverage.

The Freezer was cold but the refrigerator was warm. The Fan motor had gone out.
It was very easy and I'm not a handyman by any stretch of the imagination. I just removed the back inside panel of the freezer. The I unscrewed the fan mounting bracket. Unclipped the wires. Removed the old fan blade and put it on the new motor. I then attached the wires to the new motor and secured it with the old mounting brackets. I then replaced the back panel. The fridge is working like new now.

The freezer section was working fine. Not properly cooling the refrigerator
I looked on line to see what was causes of the problem and determined that it was probably the fan in the freezer not working. I took the back section of the freezer apart and saw the fan was not running. I checked the parts on line and found that it was availiable and ordered a new fan motor. The blade looked fine, but I ordered a grommet anyway to ensure that there was no vibration problems causing the fan motor to go out. When the fan motor arrived, I began disconnecting the old one after unpluging the refridgerator and noting the terminals for the wires. The wire terminals were in a slightly different location, but reasoned out which wire belonged to the correct location. I pulled the old fan motor out, switched out the fan blade and grommet and re-incerted the new fan motor. I reconnected the wires and re-assembled the rear wall of the freezer. I plugged in the refridgerator and wa-la! It worked.
