Whirlpool Gold - freezer not freezing - fan not running

Hello experts

My Whirlpool Gold model gs2shexnb00 is no longer freezing. I pulled the coil cover and notice the fan is not running - it is cold but not cold enough.

The refrigerator side is working fine - only the freezer is the problem.

In searching for a fix, I have found the likely fix to be the run capacitor - my question is does this only effect the freezer section??? I don't thing so, so what else may be causing the fan to not run? A control board maybe...

Thanks in advance

Mark

UPDATE

I cycled all power and turned up the house heat - the fan is now running

Is it possible that the ambient temperature can effect the cooling?

Welcome to the forums.

Which fan is not running..... the condensor fan under the fridge or the evaporator fan inside the freezer ?
