Question about Sub-Zero 661/F Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a 8 year old side by side sub zero refrigerator and ice is forming on the back left hand side of the refrigerator, what is causing this?
The solution posted previously is TOTALLY WRONG. A Sub Zero ref doesn't have a heating element in the fresh food section. Only in the Frozen food section. It has 2 totally separate systems for each section. 2 Compressors and 2 evaporators. They share a condenser. If you are having ice build up in the refrigerator then the problem you are having is a refrigerant leak in the fresh food evaporator. You need to have a certified tech come out and replace the evaporator in your refrigerator section of your Sub Zero. Not sure what you are asking about the thermostat.

There is no heater in the fresh food section of sub zero. If you have frost or ice build up on the left of back wall, your sealed system failed, low on refrigerant, sub zero known for weak evaporator coils in fridge section. Here is how I fix it, check this video, put like or dislike on it, thanks ! THIS IS 100% What is wrong if you asking about refrigerator section!

This component is a heating element located on the evaporator coil. When the refrigerator or freezer switches to the defrost cycle, the defrost heater is turned on to melt the frost in the compartment. Failure of the defrost heater causes failure to defrost.Test the element with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the heating element, remove the compartment's wall panels. Clip one probe of the VOM to each element terminal. The meter should read between 5 and 20 ohms. If it doesn't, the heating element is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. Connect the new heater the same way the old one was connected.
