Disabling fridge lights

I need to disable the lights in my fridge.
does the unit on/off button in my subzero fridge turn the whole fridge off, or just the lights and the little screen?
is there a better way to disable the lights other than taping over the little things that get pushed down when the door closes. the tape has a bad habit of coming unstuck.

Buzzinzg fridge. every 3 minutes. then clicks off. Ice maker is turned off.


Sounds like even though the ice maker is turned off, the water solenoid is still opening to request water. This is true if the ice maker has no water in the trays and the ice maker is disabled through the use of a lever that prevents the unit from cycling. Since you did not post the make and model number of the whole refrigerator, that is all I can offer.

It is stuck in demo mode how do I fix the problem

How to disable the demonstration (DEMO) mode.
Article ID: 42707 ' Last Updated: 03/11/2014
Sony® stereo systems will enter the DEMO mode the first time you power on the system or if you do not operate the unit shortly after turning on the power to the system.
To disable the DEMO mode, while the stereo system is powered off, press the DISPLAY button repeatedly until the demonstration display disappears.
NOTES:
  • Depending on your model, some units have a DEMO button that is used to disable the demonstration mode. If your unit has this button, with the power to the system off, press the DEMO button until the display disappears.
  • If applicable to your unit, setting the clock on your stereo system will also disable the DEMO mode.
  • Using the buttons on a supplied remote control will not disable the demonstration mode.
If model-specific information is needed to complete any of these steps, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals, Specifications and Warranty information for your Sony product is available online.

How do I turn off and reset side-by-side Subzero fridge, to vacuum condenser?


Usually vacuum condenser light is on, not because of condenser coils dirty, but low on refrigerant unit, so compressor is running longer then usually. You can shut your subzero off at breaker box, if light will keep coming on in day or two, you will need to call service to replace evaporator. Most likely evaporator in Fresh food section has leak(at list its most common place). Check this video I made, even if Your Sub Zero sideXside it still will look the same about changing evaporator. Hope that was helpful.

Flashing ice light service


Hi,

Along with the service light, are you getting any fault codes with it (like EC and a number)? Under normal conditions, this would mean the the unit as a whole is running too much and needs to be cleaned. If cleaned and this is still an issue, you may need a certified person to look for cooling issue that only the computer is seeing. This can happen in a unit the is about 10-15 years old, normally in the fridge section. Do you have a ice ball or frost on the the back wall of the fridge section around the meat slide shelf? this would b a tell - tell sign of a cooling issue. If in doubt, call SubZero dIrectly at 800-888-7820 ask for a certified dealer to take care of you. Not every service company can work on the SubZero unit. (You want certified!)

I hope this helps.

Hello. My freezer part of my subzero 690 is getting too cold. The temperature has dropped to -8. My normal setting is zero. I tried raising the setting to +5 with no effect. I tried turning the whole...


check u tube for problem solving videos.

There are a number of great troubleshooting u tube videos, which show you what to look for and many of the fixes are really simple and are universal for all fridges. The simplest is that you left a door open, moisture got in and froze causing ice to build up, so you have to thaw it totally, not just turn it off. I moved my older subzero and think one of the tubes must have been knocked and it lost its Freon, so stopped cooling. The cost of having it recharged was so prohibitive (ie environmental disposal issue meant it had to be moved to a special location fixed and moved back at my expense or Subzero said it was a closed unit and you had to replace the whole thing$ 1,300 for the condenser alone) so, I tossed it + bought another used one until my renovation was done.

Generally with any fridge, there seems to be 2 possible Simple reasons:
1. DEFROST MODE PROBLEM it is stuck in defrost mode
. a)the defrosting tube is plugged

b)The tube or thermostat is frozen, most likely because someone left the door open or the seal is poor;

c) termostat defective-untube video explained how to test circuit;
4. CONDENSER ISSUES: the condenser coolant gas is low and can be easily recharged- see the u tube how to video;
5. Condenser is dirty and cannot breathe- vacuum it;
6. The condenser overheated and needs replacing . 4-6 will have the condenser blowing cool not warm air.


I have had this problem with the fridge portion of my SUBZERO bottom freezer and Subzero (and a repair person ) gave me some good advice, which should also apply to yours, but you might want to call them yourself:
1. Simplest fix- if the defrost tube is blocked or frozen, the defrost cycle will stick on preventing cooling (either freezing up or heating for the defrost cycle not cooling); Some subzero models are especially prone to this. I could see part of my tube inside the fridge on the back wall close to the bottom where it drains and removed the panels to expose and clean it;
2. You should pull it out and unplug it to get it to defrost fully. After doing that once, I made sure my fridge was on a separate circuit or switched!! Yours might not be the same, but on mine the tubes run through the fridge to get to the freezer so both parts have to defrost;
3. Subzero fridge and freezer each have their own independent condensers, so you might be hearing the condenser for the fridge running, even though one part is turned off.
4. Check the thermostat to see if it is working. There is a good u tube video on this.
5 Some of the u tube videos show how to "recharge" the Freon. Subzero told me these are sealed units and could not be done, so regardless of the problem, the condenser had to be replaced. The subzero repair person was really helpful + checked the Freon or gas level (Mine was old enough that it was Freon not the newer environmental stuff) so they would have to haul it away to drain and recharge it + then the condenser might still have to be replaced.


Good luck

Subzero model 532 fridge not cooling well, freezer ok


Did u check condenser on the top behind the grill? If it's clean, check unit for evaporator freon leaking. Light....Possibly bad bulbs behind that plastic light cover or light switch - one of them located on upper portion of door frame.

There is no reset. There is an on/off but it doesn't trip. You should check the breakers at the breaker box and then call for service if the one for the refr isn't tripped
