i have a 21 y old sub zero model 561 the door edges feel warm . also where i can get a ice maker its broken
Hello, I can help you with this. The door edges are warm due to a failed fan motor or the condenser (air filter) being clogged. You will need to remove the to grill and inspect both parts to determine which is at fault. I would recommend going to sub zero's website and entering your zip code to find a local authorized repair shop and you can purchase the ice maker from them. you can also get the fan if that is the failed part. Let me know if you need any further assistance. Thanks, Sam

my zip is 18069 ty
Mid-Atlantic Parts Dist

Havertown, PA 19083

I would also attempt to blow pc air duster compressed air through the condenser (filter) from the right. The surface may be clean but you may have debris inside clogging it. Pressure gauges on the compressor would be the true test but I'm assuming you don't have those.
