The freezer is working fine. The drawers in the top fridge are also working fine along with ice maker. No air blowing out of vent in back of fridge. I have seen post about the condenser fan not working, I took the back off the fridge and the fan was turning fine. Could there still be something wrong with the fan? Thanks in advance.

You refrigerator evaporator fan motor? You should hear it running fast and see it running fast, that is the only part that sends cold air up to the top.

Here's the refrigerator evaporator fan motor for your model:
Refrigerator Evaporator Fan Motor WR60X26866


--->To verify it, you can use a multimeter test to see if its getting proper voltage to it from the motherboard. Pull the refrigerator out from the wall, then you will see a cover over the motherboard, just remove that cover.

--->J6 Pin 2 and Pin 4

--->Pin 2=12 volts DC +
--->Pin 4=12 volts DC -

--->Put your meter on DC volts, then put the RED meter lead on Pin 2, put the BLACK meter lead on Pin 4 and you should get 12 volts DC.

At the electrical connector at the FF(Fresh Food) Fan motor inside the Fresh Food(Refrigerator) section, when the FF Fan is NOT running:
RED to BLACK - 12 VOLTS DC CONSTANTLY

If you get 12 VOLTS DC CONSTANTLY when it should be running and its not running or running slow, then that fan motor is bad.

Let us know how it goes.
