Vacuum condenser keeps flashing

Clean the coils, usually at the bottom of the unit, remove the cover and use a vacuum and a bottle brush and clean away, use a crevice tool on the vac. hose but do not force it between the coils.

My 12 year old subzero fridge (650) is not getting cold. this morning i discovered ice behind the fresh food drawer, removed it, it was running fine, temp 35. now tonight the temp is 51. freezer is fine....

Is it flashing vacuum condenser? Ice behind the crisper drawer shouldn't effect the temp. What is it set at? You can go to and click on Tech Help for additional info.
