After emptying refrigerator section, removed plastic housing of temperature controls at top of refrig section. Broke one of plastic restraints as I couldn't see how housing had to be slide forward first. removal of house reveals another plastic housing which contain the Adaptive Defrost Controller (ADC).

Removed three screws: two in front and one in rear of plastic housing, allowing housing to swing down from some wiring and ductwork in rear left corner. ADC was in rear right corner. Unplugged old ADC, plugged in new one [recommend you unplug refrigerator first unless you like some sparks!] and reversed process to re-install all housings. Defrosted coils in freezer section. Refrigerator now seems to be working fine.
