How do I check the defrost heater?

The fan is running in the correct direction (assuming the correct direction is blowing air toward the back), there is no air coming out of those top ports at the top of the freezer, nor out of the air diffuser in the fridge. This is what is leading me to think the fan has lost power.

I spent some time yesterday with a turkey baster, very hot water and a water line tube for poking and could not find any ice in that back duct leading to the fridge. I was able to push the water line from the port in the fridge all the way up through into the freezer with no resistance.

There is nothing obstructing the two holes that I assume are the return air ports, the 3-4 inch slots on either side of the back floor of the freezer that open into the refrigerator. No ice anywhere. Won't be able to do a full shutdown for a long period until the new fridge arrives and cools down. This one is still sort of keeping my condiments cool, prob should throw them all out and start over though, don't want to die of food poisoning.

The damper, which I assume is the one marked "freezer" and that opens and closes in that duct, is working just fine. I did ask yesterday what the refrigerator warmer/colder dial was supposed to do but no one has answered that yet.

Well if that frost pattern example is whats going on with mine i prob have a refrigerant leak and have been wasting my time. Sigh. I will stay out for the fridge till tomorrow eve, not looking good though is it? the fridge door seal is strong. The freezer seal seemed strong enough but maybe not as grabby. No gaps around the seal though.

Yes I fully put everything back together before I checked to see if what I did helped, it didn't. Just holding my hand behind the fan while it was on, it didn't feel very strong. Then I put it all back together, just a very very almost can't tell its there breeze from the duct.

This was the frost pattern when I opened it earlier...

Well there is definitely nothing blocking that duct, I was able to run a water line from the bottom all the way up. Maybe I need a new fan? It spins but maybe its not forcing enough air down?
