You're obviously all over it, I'll leave you with it.
Look at the evaporator.
It should have a fairly even coating of frost on it.
Note do this after the compressor has been on for at least 10 minutes. If you do it right after a defrost cycle you will come to the wrong conclusion.

If there is just frost in one area (usually where the freon enters the coils) or it is blotchy you have a sealed system problem.
It is probably not worth fixing as you need a pro for a sealed system problem.

Yes, both of the fans are running.

I forgot there is one more piece of information that might be useful.  I've had the refrigerator on and the evaporator covers (the one for the evaporator and the one for the evaporator fan) off overnight.  There is a pipe to the evaporator that was ice free but now is has a half an inch of ice on it in places.

Also, the temperature went down 10 degrees overnight so I'm now at 60 F instead of 70 F.  Progress? :-\
Is the evaporator (fridge) fan running?

Is the condenser (compressor) fan running?

I have a Whirlpool wrr56x18fw02 refrigerator (with no freezer) that doesn't cool.  I ran the diagnostic tests and I didn't find any errors.

This is the first refrigerator I have tried to repair.  What do I do next?

I don't know if this is useful, but the compressor is hot and I have a hot pipe on one side of the compressor and a slightly cool pipe on the other side.

Yesterday I replaced the evaporator fan motor in my maytag fridge/freezer-on-top after I saw the old fan was not spinning and the fridge was warm (~55F) while the freezer was still cold (0-3F).

After installing the fan and plugging it back in the fan started spinning immediately so i thought it was fixed and all good.

Today when I checked i noticed the new fan was not spinning any more even though the compressor was on. Instead the new fan was making a humming noise, but when i gave it a gentle nudge it started spinning right away.

So now every couple hours I've been giving it a nudge to get the fan to spin.

There is no ice/obstruction on the fan stopping it from spinning, but when the condenser is running the evaporator fan is shaking/humming, and a nudge starts it spinning.

Does this suggest the new fan i got was  defective? or is it more likely  some other issue causing these problems?

what should i check next?

thank you!

I didnt think that was important.
Both temps I listed indicate a problem. Especially the 2nd.
After 20 years, it would be very likely that its slowly lost some refrigerant. Especially considering everything else ive listed. Do I know that for sure? No, i dont, which is why I asked.
Wash a disposable filter?

Generic info as you don't say what type of A/C, make or model.
What is it not doing exactly?
A/C's/fridges etc. don't EVER use refrigerant, that's why you can find 50 year old fridges purring along just like the day they were made. They only need refrigerant if there has been a leak, the leak needs to be found and repaired, not just some gas added.
After at least 15 minutes running with thermostat set low, check your temperature with a digital probe thermometer mounted inside the first air register in the circuit closest to the A/C unit and in the duct at the return air grill. Remove return air grill and remove filter and wash it.
