    We have the same problem on our 601R.  The cooling element that is hidden behind back wall panel has a frozen section on top left corner.

You both sound like you need a qualified factory repairman out there. If there is a blockk of ice on the back wall you have a low charge in the refrigerant system. It is most likely the evaporator or cooling element as you call it which has a five year parts and labor warranty, then parts only for years 6-12. Here is the link to the factory locator site. http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=02030 or call 800-222-7820.

How do i shut off and reset sub=zero 690 fridge?


Its not necessary when "Vacuum Condenser" light is blinking means That condenser is dirty. That light will come on if compressor running too long. Most common problem is that Evaporator coil in fresh food section is leaking freon. It still might keep temps ok, but compressor need to run much more to keep temperature you set. check back wall in fresh food section on left side at the middle, behind drawers. if you see moisture in one spot or a little bit of ice build up, then You will need to call people who can replace evaporator. It is pretty expensive fix. I made video how it looks to repair this problem. Thanks.

My sub-zero 642 will not get colder in the freezer than about 9 degrees and the fridge won't get colder than about 45 degrees. I turned off the breaker and vacuumed the coils, but still no change. ...


The Sub Zero 642 uses independent refrigeration meaning the freezer and refrigerator each has their own system. Best to have an "Authorized Factory Service Company" check it out.

Vacuum condensor light flashing and the refrigerator won't get colder than 51 degrees.


The light is indication a problem with the condenser coils being covered with dust/dirt and cannot dissipate the heat energy absorbed by the system in the evaporator coils (freezer). Or the condenser fan is not running. Clean the condensor and/or check the fan.

601R sub zero vacuum condenser notice


Your problem might be serious enough to warrant a repairman's visit. But this was my experience: An official Sub Zero repair company in NYC told me this: If the "vacumm condenser" light keeps flashing after you've opened and cleaned the condenser grill, then either pull out the plug for the Sub Zero refrigerator or turn off the circuit breaker (or fuse) in your house that leads to it, wait for some minutes and then turn back on. It is NOT enough to turn off the unit using its own internal on-off switch - it has to be totally disconnected from the AC. I did so, waited 15 minutes, turned back on, and it worked!! I had vacuumed the condenser grill twice but the "vacuum condenser" light kept flashing AND the refrig would go bonkers if set below 38. Now the flashing warning is off and it's down to 35. Great !!!

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.
