Re: Subzero 550, today the freezer was warm and the freezer light was out.  Aside from obvious bulb, switch, socket is there a reason the light would be out in freezer and freezer warm but  fridge seems pretty ok.

 

Last week the fridge was not staying cold had  refrigerant added then.

1) no
2) Fridge has separate Compressor and Evaporator

Could be a defrost issue.  Any ice or frost visible from the front vents of the freezer evaporator cover?

When they added refrigerant was the leak fixed?

 

The Sub zero condenser coils tend to get so dirty that air can not pass through them. As a result the compressors overheat and cant cool the fridge or freezer.

 

 If there is a valve on the compressor they tend to leak after they overheat and need the core replaced. Also make sure there is a cap securely tightened on the valve end.

 

The valve looks like the kind on your car tire.
