Question about Sub-Zero Overlay Design 632/O Side-By-Side Refrigerator
Fridge and freezer maintain respective temps. Don't hear fan operation as we used to immediately after closing freezer door. Also used to be very difficult to break seal and reopen freezer door for several seconds after closing door; now it's very easy... too easy. Temp does maintain at 3 degrees and ice maker works fine. Door seal appears to be in good condition and making clean contact all around.

In your freezer section there are 2 door switches -- press each one. One turns off the light. The other turns ON the freezer evaporator fan. If the freezer compressor is running the evap fan should RUN when the switch is depressed. If not, the fan motor is defective OR the switch is defective. Easy to troubleshoot the switch - just pry it out with a screwdriver, short the terminals with a piece of insulated wire. If the fan runs, it's OK and the problem is the switch.
If it's the fan, it's not hard to replace. Get replacement motor, turn freezer control to off, remove food and shelves, then the back sheet metal panel. Fan is right behind the panel.

Sounds like a cold control. It is located behind the panel and can be ohmed out to check for proper operation. You need to remove the light shield then after the shelves have been taken out remove the two screws that hold the fan shroud in place. This will allow back panel to come for so you can check the cold control. It should read as a short in all positions except off when the cap tubes have come to ambient temp. If you get the back off and see ice on only a small portion of the evaporator you have a sealed system problem and need a qualified technician.

you have a bad seal, Take a dollar bill and slide it in between the door seal and the frig. slide it up and down to see if if has drag on it. If you find places it dont touch loosen the screws and adjust the hinges till it fits tight. In some cases you might have to tweak the doors if they need it.
