This fridge is about 3 years old. The model number is HTS18GBMCRWW.

This is a top bottom freezer fridge, the freezer section is cold, but the fresh food section is warmer than normal.

I took the back panel out of the freezer to view the evaporator and it is not iced up. The airvent going down to the fridge is not blocked, but the evaporator fan doesn't seem to be spinning. I don't know if the problem is the fan motor or the thermostat. Any advice?

If the compressor is running sounds like the thermostat is good, need to see of you have voltage to the fan motor in the freezer, if so the motor is bad, sounds like. If no voltage to the motor need to see where you have lost it.  This fan blows the air into the freezer and food compartment.
