After I replaced the main board I plugged it in and the evaporator fan was working. It ran until it got pretty cold and the fan stopped blowing but the compressor still ran. This is when the temperature started to climb. It was very warm that day and the fridge is in my garage. The fan never came back on. I unplugged it and plugged back in the next day and it did the same thing. I plugged in the next day and it has been working now for about a day and a half. The weather is cooler. I wonder of on hot days it can't get cold and shuts down. Not sure if that's a possibility. I'm just letting it run now and observe the temperature. The warmest setting on freezer is 8 degrees and it has been running from 8 to 14 degrees the last day and a half.

The fridge is in my garage and it ran last night and was at operating temperature this morning. I guess maybe because it was cooler. I'm not sure why the evaporator fan works off and on. I guess it's just not worth fixing. Thank you for you help. Door switches seem to be fine.

Yes. It was covered with a thin layer of frost on the upper half. Lower half was just cold. This is with the door open.

The fan stayed on until the freezer got to 18 degrees and fridge around 60 degrees and then it shut off and temperature in both compartments started rising.

The compressor is running. I did not replace any sensors. Only main board. I just plugged it in to check frost pattern and after about 10 minutes the top half is frosty white. When plugged it in this time the main fan came on but not the fan that goes to ice maker. It wasn't working before except in test mode. Both fans would come on in test mode.
