I assume you have a fault code, do you have good working knowledge and electronic testing equipment to troubleshoot this? if not u are better off calling a technician while the fridge still works, if the fault is serious it will stop shortly

I have not seen a subzero unit that could not be repaired, even thirty years old unit can be repaired. With that being said, I would call subzero directly to ask for a certified servicer in your area to take care of your unit. Here is a link for their website to help you Contact and Support they will get you a person knowledgeable to correct your issue. FYI not everyone can work on SubZero unit. This unit if 12 1/2 years old is just a teenager to this manufacture, no worries. They can last over 30 years, I have seen them and repaired them.
I am here if you need help in SoCal.

Cd loaders will not work. It seems to be jammed.

If this is a multi disc system the plastic bays over time ware out along with the gears that run it, the repair is very difficult and usually impossible. The cost for repair will be high if the tech is successful, because he will need to dismantle and re-time the gears to work properly. I suggest an estimate before you commit

The ice maker doesnt make ice and the vacuum condenser warning always is on. even when I turn off and on and vacuum

Your unit may still be under warranty- the following blog has the warranty lengths (in years):
Here is a general ice-making troubleshooting guide that may help you:
Here's what a tech on says about the vacuum condenser problem:

The vaccuum condensor light just means one or more compressor in the unit has excessive run time, you need to have this unit checked, your compressor(s) are running too long for some reason so might be a sealed systen problem developing.

Try this unauthorised repair, pop the key top off make a small spitball and push it down the little hole in the hole and replace the the ket top. It should work. The proper repair is to replace the contact sheet. You need a tech for that.

Condensation and water in refrigerator

It sounds like you need someone who knows what they are doing out to your house. A tech should find and repair or replace the component that leaks. A second trip should be not be needed. The fact you have mold tells me they have never properly did your repair. Mold will grow only when the cavity gets above 40 degrees for a sustained period of time. use or call 800-222-7820 and explain the situation and get another company to fix it right.

Subzero 690 flashing EC and service

Rhino, this is yet another simple fix. You need to call subzero and let them know that your ref section is not cooling properly. 9 out of 10 times it will be a problem with the evaporator coil needing replacement. Sub is aware of this issue and usually picks up the tab for this repair.
