the freezer is not cooling (so the fridge isn't either)...

Pulled the Cover off the back..
- Compressor is running and warm to the touch
- Condensor fan is running
- Cleaned the condenser grills, but they weren't that bad

inside the freezer, pulled the inside back cover
- there is NO ICE AT all.. the evaporator coils in the back are not cool.
- the fan on the left side is turning (blowing to fridge I assume)
- the evaporator fan is not turning, now I understand that it may not turn of the door is opened, but a quick look didn't show it turning.

would the evaporator fan failure cause the evaporator not to cool at all?

Thoughts?

No, If the compressor is running hot and there's no cooling, the problem is in the sealed system.
