Question about Refrigerators
Newer freezers/refrigerators tend to run a lot. Typically 75% of the time is a norm. Some other things could affect this such as ambient temperature, location could be an issue depending on if it is in the basement, or in a sunroom. Usage can also cause it if the door is opened and closed a lot. Along with trying to maintain a temperature below zero. The colder it is, the longer it needs to run to try and achieve it! Should be as close to 0' F as possible.
It is best to give as much info as possible when posting. Model #'s let me look up what you have and being a serviceman I am aware of certain "ticks" between models. Age of the unit tells me if it is maybe getting ready to go! Not always though. The temp you have while the problem is happening.
You said you replaced everything? do you men electrical parts or components? A list would be helpful. Location in home/ or is it business use? A picture of the frost pattern would also go a very long way!

SOURCE: freezer cold, fridge warm
The small cooling fan in the freezer compartment that sends chilled air to the food side is defective and needs replacement. Sometimes that are only frozen stuck.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect. If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply. Thank you.

unlikely to be the defrost timer. more likely to be the defrost element. try disconnecting the element and see if it trips then. could be of course a wiring fault - frayed wires etc

SOURCE: not cooling
Sometimes when the evaporator fan goes out, it takes part of the motherboard also. (part number WR55X10552, which also subs into a WR55X10656) If this is the case, I would not expect the refrig to be running either. (If your compressor still runs, check door switch.)

I don't know why there would be much of a delay between the condenser and evaporator fans coming on. If you have diagnosed it as a bad motor, that's probably correct.
But the motor could just need cleaning and lubricating
