Replace the light switch at the top of the door opening. Kill the power to the unit, pull down the grille up top, then remove the cover over the switches. the light switch is the one with the white back. The one with a black back is the fan switch. pull the 2 leads off, open the fridge door, squeeze the switch with a pair of pliers to pop it out of the opening, then install the new switch in the opening facing the same direction. put the wires back on , in any order doesn't matter, put the cover back on the switches, then the grille back on and restore power to the unit.

I may need a picture to determine what is wrong. there is a screw-in pin that has a flat head top that you screw in. If that is in place, but the little cam itself (it's chrome with a black plastic center) is getting past the pin, then you have other problems. Either the 2 white plastic door closer cams on the bottom hinge are broken/worn/missing, or the lower hinge is sagging where it attaches to the cabinet of the unit and that needs to be replaced. These things can allow that cam to pass the 90 degree stop pin even when it is in place. you can look at a diagram of the hinge at http://www.greatplainsapplianceparts.com/order/subzeroparts.asp? (the question mark should be part of that link, but it won't take it so you may have to add it in the browser after you click the link). Let me know if this doesn't solve your issue!

Turn the power of the refrigerator off then back on. Simple as that.

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.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it.
The cold control probably the culprit

That is the suction line which carries refrigerant (freon) and indicates a sealed system problem which must be attended to by an EPA "Certified" Technician.

Hi there

There are a few of possibilities

Switch off and unplug before trying these.

1. You may not have got all the dust out of the condenser, sometimes you need to shine a torch through from the back and see if all the fins are clean, if not then a soft brush can be used with the vacuum cleaner to remove the rest of the dust.

2. There is a small temperature sensor either just behind the condenser or sometimes pushed in between the fins, this may have dust on it or it may be faulty. If it's faulty and you are competent with electrics it is fairly easy to change.

3. Is there a fan at the back of the condenser, and if so does it work. Again if it is not working its easy to change if you are competent.

However if you are not happy with electrics then you will need your local reputable service guy

Regards

Gordon
