My refrigerator is warm 72 and my freeze is 00. how to fix it.

You have to remember that sub zero has two independent compressors and evaporators so the freezer is fine. Focus on the fridge part. Here are some things you want to look at.
1) When you open the door, press the light switch and the fan switch, Does the fan run, it should.
2) Take the grate down that covers the compressors. The fridge is usually on the right as your looking at it. Is it running, hot or cold. If its running and hot, that's normal. If its hot and not running, you can tell by if its vibrating, you may have to turn the freezer off to prevent outside vibration. If its not running that means you more than likely have a bad compressor. If its cold and the fan inside didn't come on then the thermostat is bad inside the machine.

You might have a dirty condenser or possibly a freon leak. Check to see if the fans are running and lights are going off when the doors are closed. You didn't mention what the model number is, that might help.

My Subzero Condenser fan runs constantly - but coils are clean

If it is similar to mine at home (Model 550) the condensor fan is designed to run continuously, even when both the freezer and refrigerator are shut off. There is no control or switch in the fan circuit, so it just runs whenever the fridge is plugged in to the wall. It uses about 56 watts.

Fridge portion of my 611 is warm but freezer is still cold. Help.

The only other thing that seems could be wrong is that your freon lines are icing up and is cause you to not cool properly. Pull out your fridge and check the compressor on the bottom

Subzero 611 Refrigerator not cooling, freezer fine

It sounds like a defective ref section evaporator. This is common, due to poor quality metal used in fabrication. If you call subzero, they will more than likely fix it as they are aware of this issue. It probably wont cost you anything if you get them involved.
