AT TIMES YOU MAY HEAR THE COMPRESSOR CLICK OFF AND ON OVER AND OVER. Signs of a bad start relay or capacitor. Check with an OHMS meter for continuity (ohms) and voltage, capacitor can be checked for Microfares. ( if in series with the windings)
To check ur compressor with multi meter:
Disconnect and remove the relay and capacitor from compressor, somes located next to compressor in a casing.

You wills see 3 prongs coming out of compressor. 1 goes to ur start winding, 1 goes to ur run winding and the center goes to ur ground or COM

Place ur meter connector or prong on the start prong and the other on the ground (center prong) take note of the reading in OHMS for example 5 ohms.
Next place meter prong on run prong and the center ground prong agin. Take note of the reading in OHMS. Example 4 ohms

Next place meter prong on the start prong and the other on the run prong, now take note of the reading example 9 ohms. Now match the total of this ohms test with the total of ur two separate test. 9 ohms, if they match ur ok give or take 5 percent plus or minus. One more test to make to test of there is a short in compressor attach meter prong to ground prong and rub the other end of meter prong to metal ( scrape the metal clean of paint and test on metal surface not painted surface. If it shows continuity or ohms , u have a short in ur compressor. It should show infinity

Unplug, and take cardboard cover at bottom off using 1/4 nut diver. Look at the fan; is there anything touching it? Spin it with your finger. Wait a few minutes then plug back in. Is it comming from the roundish black thing the size of a basketball? If so its not worth fixing?GOODLUCK>>>

SOURCE: sub zero fridge model 561 not making ice

Thanks to everyone for the help.We did get it moving and working finally. My husband took the ice drawer out. Reached up to where the ice drops out and poked around a bit. He said he didn't move anything but I heard a piece of ice move. We then shut the power off at the breaker switch, waited 10 seconds or so then turned back on. An hour or so later, we heard ice drop and it's still making ice. What a relief. I
could tell there had been a power failure as the clocks all needed resetting. So as someone suggested, we just had to reboot the thing.
We tried everything after reading 50 plus pages of questions and answers and finally got it. Thanks so much!

Did you get the codes before you cleared the memory? The codes play an enormous part in diagnosis. If you did not copy the codes befored you cleared them make sure if it happens again that you do.

It'll be fine. Leave the door ajar and clean it inside with bactericidal cleaner after you finish using it and before you start using it again.

I bought the fridge in 2006. In 2008 it began making a loud vibrating noise. Repairman replaced the fan motor blade.Took 30 days to get part! It was never quite right after that. Had problems with defrost...

Could all be in the fan motor. If it's bad again, I would change the motor and blade. Then fire it back up and test for correct cycling.
That may take a week of running until you get a true picture of whats happening, but they do have a lot of trouble with the motherboard./

Ice maker stopped after electric shutoff

You may have a problem with the computer control board in the ice maker.  Try this.  Turn off the icemaker for about 2 minutes.  
Turn on the ice maker and press the clear button.  Press and hold this button for 12 seconds to get it to force extract.  This will confirm that the motors will work and push the ice cubes out.  Afterwards, let it run by itself.  If it still doesn't make ice, you will need to replace the icemaker.
