Answers :

There is an updated ADC board for that unit. Your unit has the ADC III board and the new one is ADC IV. Replace the board and you should be good to go. Also, be sure the coils are clean on the condenser and the fan as well. Here is the board to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

The circulation fan in my freezer runs almost continuously, cycling between full speed for a few seconds, then half speed for a few seconds. Makes a constant 'hoot' noise when running at half speed. I would think the fan should not run this much. Are these fridges equipped with variable speed fans, or is this a pre-failure symptom. Is it possible that this could be caused by a blockage in the air path (the fan seems to be pushing air just fine). Both fridge and freezer sections cool fine.

OK, I TOOK YOUR ADVICE AND FIRST REPLACED THE MAIN BOARD. WHEN THAT DIDNT WORK, I REPLACED THE CONDENSOR FAN IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT. THE FAN DOES NOT WORK AT ALL NOW. ALSO, BEFORE THE FAN USED TO WORK ON ONE CYCLE AND COOL DOWN THE FREEZER AND FOOD COMPARTMENT, THEN AS YOU WOULD GO IN AND OUT OF FOOD COMPARTMENT, WOULD STEADLY RISE IN TEMPERATURE. AT LEAST THE FAN WORKED FOR ONE CYLCE. SO FAR OUT OVER $300, AND PROBLEM WORSE THAN BEFORE. NOW WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST? BEEN WITHOUT A REF

Freezer stops working as if its stuck in a defrost mode. Stays in this cycle too long and everything in the freezer thaws out. Service people came out and when they removed the inside cover over the coils, the fan was not running and it was a solid block of ice.

This morning I went to the 561 and the freezer lights stopped working. Refrig side works fine as do the other switches to cycle the fan on/off in both freezer and refrig.

The freezer and refrigerator sides not cooling correctly. Both maintain some cooling at the bottom, but warm at the top, 50+ degrees. Refrigerator side at bottom is actually below freezing; freezer is not. Fan motor sounds as if it is running, but have not heard the compressor cycle on and off for some time, and when it does it goes off very quickly.
