Not much info available for the Danby aside from the wiring diagram on the back.  Looks like your model uses a mechanical thermostat.  What are your exact symptoms?

Went back to the refrigerator and found that it is not running.Checked the compressor with a ohm meter and it should that it was good,also checked the compressor for grounding,not grounded.When the thermostrat is calling for refrigeration,shouldn't the wires to the compressor be showing voltage?

I don't see any fan motors on the breakdown but it's a lousy breakdown that Danby provides.  Looks like a wraparound evaporator.  If the evaporator is exposed, feel for cooling completely across the sides and back of coil when running.  Might also check the compressor relay for continuity.
