Can 30-year-old subzero be fixed?

3 months ago

My parents have a very tight small kitchen in their apartment, which came with a built-in subzero from 1994. Last night the fridge compressor stopped working. Freezer is fine. They have a repair person coming later this week but I wanted to do some research first. Are parts still available? Is it reasonable to think a subzero from '94 could be fixed?

The rest of their kitchen is great shape, new appliances, and high end cabinets from 1994 still look new. They do not want to spend $$$ on a new subzero or other built-in nor do they want to have to redo their kitchen. I'm sure they secretly hoped the fridge would outlive them!
