Question about Refrigerators
SOURCE: Sub Zero Freezer Vacuum
If your freezer temps are ok, it may just be that your gasket is getting older and it becomes more porus as it ages. The vacume sound doesnt really mean alot except that the difference in the room temp and the cold of the freezer create this vacume.

Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at repairclinic.com. logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.

The service flashing means that you had a long run time over a period of time. You can reset it by turning the unit on and off or if you have a door alarm button hold that for 30 seconds and that will clear the fault code. If it comes back you have a problem that needs to be addressed such as cleaining the condensor. There is no factory filter on these units. If there is a filter it is most likely under the unit, which can be accessed by removing the kick. THe kick plate is held in place by two phillips head screws, remove them and have a look. If it was done by a "professional" they should have put an inline shut off valve for easy replacement of the filter.

On the top of your unit there is a grill. Open both door and look at the lip under the grill. Remove these four screws. Now, pull on the top of the grill. You will notice that it is held on by two springs. Unhook those springs and set the cover aside. The coils are on the right hand side. Use a vacuum with the soft brush attachment to clean them and avoid damaging the airflow. Also, check the fan on the other side of the coils to make sure it is running.

still not clear. in your question you say refrig side is dark and not running, then you say you put a temp guage in it overnight and it's steady. So you DO have cooling in refrig? If it's just the lights, yes it could the switch or it could be the light bulbs.
