As OB noted, if the fridge is in a slide you can access the thermal switch through the top side vent. Or you could remove the cover on the roof if the fridge is not in a slide and probably pull a wire off that way.
If a fan is bad on our 1210 in a slide, I can remove the top vent, remove a vertical baffle, and reach the two fans.
The first step for you is to yank a wire off the thermal switch. Either the fuse will continue to blow or it won't. If it does still blow it's not a bad fan. If it does not blow then dig into the 1200 installation or service manual to see where the fans are located.
