If you are certain you don't have a sealed system failure.. here is some food for thought :
I had an amana where a faulty timer caused cooling problems as well as the water not to dispense. The problem was electrical and intermittent. I'm no electrical wiz but I think there must be a nuetral(?) line to the dispenser that runs to the timer/connector. My cooling problemwas not related to a defrost or sealed system failure. Maybe a faulty timer/connector sends interference to the fan as well as the dispenser. All i know is the problem stopped when I replaced the timer. Haven't looked at the diagram, but the timer I worked on was located under the fridge. I think condensation or water somehow can get into a timer located under the fridge.
