Freezer not getting cold enough - GE TPX24SIYE

Some foods were getting defrosted, temperature was about 10 degrees Fahrenheit in freezer. Noticed the condenser fan wasn't spinning, so I replaced the condenser fan motor but now freezer is up to 25-30 degrees. Sounds like the compressor is running but the coils underneath the refrigerator are room temperature (not hot, not cold). Before replacing the condenser fan motor I checked evaporator coils and there wasn't much frost on them. Defrost timer seems to be working since I can manually spin it and turn compressor/fans on and off. Just seems coincidental that right after I changed the condenser fan motor the freezer is getting warmer than when it wasn't working. A couple of times when I was first trying to figure out what might be wrong and I was restoring power the compressor did shutter for a few seconds. But it no longer does that, and after putting in the new condenser fan motor it didn't shutter. Any chance it can be something besides a bad compressor?

If you're sure the compressor is running then it should be getting hot as well the condensor coils that the fan blows thru. If not..... you may have a refrigerant leak.

Thanks Pete for the quick response. I know this might be a bizarre question, but by any chance would the fact that I removed the ice maker from inside the freezer have anything to do with it?

I couldn't see how removing the ice maker would have any bearing on this problem.
