Dear sir/madame
My subzero is not refigderating cold enough. Not even for a beer. Milk is spoiling etc. I've cleaned up top.It is a 48" (2compressors) but I don't know the model #. It is approximately 15 years old. There is frost forming on the back wall of the lower shelf.
could it possibly a shortage of gas?
If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Bill
