I would check the freezer wall first and foremost. Check for possible defrost problem or fan issue. No way I am starting by pulling the refrigerator out and checking the condenser fan motor.

The flow chart starts with both compartments warm. Even in a defrost failure, the freezer would be "cold"-- not necessarily 0F, but still cold. 

At this point, you know there's a problem with the sealed system-- either compressor not running or refrigerant leak. Why waste time tearing apart the freezer?
