Temperature Problems (will not cool)

Text:

I have a GE Profile refrigerator (model PSS26MSWASS) side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool down.
I have a GE Profile refrigerator (model PSS26MSWASS) side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool down.
 
I have broken it down and found that the evaporator motor was not starting. If I start in manually with my finger it will run. If I unplug it and plug it back it back in it is the same, only runs if I start it manually.
 
Does this mean that the fan motor is bad?
