If the fans are not coming on that would tell me the defrost timer=> R0131577 Defrost Timer is worn out and or stuck in defrost. Turn that red dial clockwise slowly until you hear compressor and fan restart.. If this solves turning on the refrigerator then you will need to replace the timer with the red dial because the clock inside is stuck and will contine to cause problems until replaced. Let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze
