Customer Question

I have a typical sz fridge 14 years old that had its condenser replaced about 8 years ago on warrantee. Recently, the "vacuum" light had been flashing for some time on the panel. I would reboot the fridge by turning it off and on and the flashing would end for a while but would come back on. About 3 months ago I replaced three of the burnt out interior lights with LED lights of lower wattage. Tonight my wife notice that the fridge had gone dark. When I examined it some hours later the lights were indeed off (there are four bulbs) but the fridge was still operating. I switched it off and on but unlike before it would not seem to come back on. At this point I also took the opportunity to clean the grate beside the compressor which had become quite clogged likely because of dust from recent home renovations. Ques: can you advise me as to what is likely going on and how to address it.
