Question about Sub-Zero 685/S Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

We have a 5 year old side by side sub zero fridge/freezer (largest size)

The side of our sub zero (where the freezer is) is really hot where the door connects. The fridge side is ok...everything is cold, but service light is on. What should I do???

    I hear a fan, but the refridgerator is built in and my husband is not here to help me pull it out. I looked inside the freezer and see no frost build-up anywhere. Should I turn the fridge off?

Check the fan in the rear of the unit.  If it is running, check the rear panel inside the freezer section and tell me if there is frost building up on the outside of this panel.

Check whether the temprature is set properly in the freezer on proper level.

    OFF the unit to get it defrost. defrost the unit for 24hours and then set the tempratures to the normal , not very high not very low.just adjust it to the normal level.and it will reset it self after defrosting.ON the unit.let it work for 2-3 hours and then adjust the temprature as you set regularly and then check mostly it works after resetting.

Is it normal for warm air to blow out of the fan at the top of a side by side sub zero. Its over 20 years old and we recently had the compressor replaced on the freezer side.


warm air will blow out from the condenser fan which is in the same area as the compressor.
There should be no warm air inside the freezer of fridge.

You might have a dirty condenser or possibly a freon leak. Check to see if the fans are running and lights are going off when the doors are closed. You didn't mention what the model number is, that might help.
