The compressor has probably overheated. Leave the fridge unplugged for a few hours until it cools down. If you keep trying to use it, the compressor will fail again. They have a self resetting thermal cutout but these will fail if the compressor keeps overheating.
When the door is left open alot of condensation forms in your fridge which freezes and ices up. This build-up will gather around your evaporator fan which sometimes stops it from working or sometimes the fan blades scrape on the ice built up.
Best to manually defrost your freezer. Empty your freezer. Turn fridge off. Put a pot of boiling water and close the door. Leave for some time to defrost the ice. You can repeat this a couple of times to defrost the ice. Otherwise you can use a blow-dryer as well.
When you defrost, and turn your fridge back on. Everything should go back to normal. Ash
you could have a leak in the sealed system,most likely the evap coil.in the fridge section,is there any ice on the left side back wall?look at the back wall on the left side around 12 inches up from the bottom draws,if there's ice there you have a freeon leak and you'll need it replaced.look at your warranty,i believe the sealed system is under warrany for the first 12 years and it's around 650 dollars to do the job.there are two compressors,one for the freezer and one for the fridge.also open the door,you'll see tow switches on top,push them in,does the lights go out and the fan come on,i've seen the light switches stick,the lights stay on and the fridge gets very warm.how old is it?if it's digital is it saying to clean the coil or anything like this?
I read about this somewhere. Leaving the door cracked open caused the ice box to get an air blockage. I think the solution was simply to unplug the unit and let it thaw out. Tried to find the thread in my forum with no luck. Sorry. From past experience, It is dang near impossible to get any information on SubZero online.
Check the light switch on the door frame, if that doesn't do the trick change the light bulb. If your refrigerator is not running and cooling and the light is out check the power, plug & circuit breaker in the power center.
You have probably already figured this out, but if the door is left open there is a sensor that will turn the lights off to keep the fridge from overheating. After you close the door and let it sit with the lights off for 15 minutes or so, the sensor will cool and allow the lights back on. If the temperature reading in the window is ok and does not say "service" or "vacuum condenser", then you should have no more trouble.
