Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Sub-zero 650 makes loud gurgling sound

Our fridge has started to make a loud gurgling sound - like a fluid is bubbling through a pipe. This either happens when the compressor is running and you open & close the door OR when the cycle ends.

This cannot be normal and as designed. Any help?

    I refuse to believe that sub-zero would design a fridge that, within three years of operation, would start to loudly gurgle at the end of every cycle. This IS unusual.

Gurgling is not unusual and is caused exactly by fluid bubbling thro a pipe.

My sub zero refrigerator makes a gurgling sound when you close the refrigerator door - sound is coming from the side of the unit.


Hi this is the drain tube sucking water back up through, this is caused by the vacuum inside the refrigerator that is formed when the air condenses, not much you can do about this sound its fairly normal.

My mothers beko fridge freezer making bubbling sound


Sounds like the evaporator fan is doing its job. Nothing to worry about. Good hearing is a blessing all fridges make different sounds some click loud while others gurgle loud. Some pop and snap. Till I got my hearing aids I didn't know mine ran so loud and clicked.

Most likely you have a leak in the evaporator. Subzero warranties the parts for 12 years. Call them to find out what they will cover. They are agreat company and will be fair with you.

That depends on if your model has a five or ten year warranty on the compressor. Your problem may not be warranty related. Check and see if the condenser is clean, check for a frozen cooling coil.
