Freezer and Refrigerator not staying cool

I had a Kenmore Smart Reach 21' Bottom Freezer Refigerator, which is about 10-11 years old. I can't locate a model number but I think it is 596.61102100.

I first noticed the ice maker was not working or producing ice. The freezer itself seems to be working but then I noticed the refrigerator was not staying cool. I turned up the control to 6 and it still seems only slightly cool. I also noticed I don't hear the fan kicking on either. I vaccumed the coils in front and also the back. I would think if the motor is bad then the freezer would not work. When I turned the fridge up to 6 I did feel some air blowing out from the vent (right under the control).

Any ideas what the problem may be???
