fridge fan stops working

I had a problem with my fridge getting warm and I found out the fan in back stops working. I have sprayed it with WD40 and have to manually get the fan going with a stick almost everyday this week. Is it time to replace the fan or could it be something else? I don't know how old it is and it's a Maytag if that helps. Do I need to call a repairman?

If you had to turn the fan manually more than once replace the motor. Sometimes these motors will stick and you can turn them to get them going and they never stick again. But if it ever sticks again always replace it.
