Question about Sub-Zero 695/O Side by Side Refrigerator
The freezer is set at 0 degrees but internal temp is now at 25. Also, loud motor noise. Light is on so it has power. No water leakage.
There are a couple of possible problems. If you mean load motor noise as in the compressor then you likely have a sealed system problem. Either a bad internal valve is making it noisy and you are loosing presure within the system. You will need a new compressor if this is the problem. A technician could tell you if this is the problem just by checking the internal low side presures. A few things that I would check before calling a technician is 1. Make sure the condenser fan in the upper unit is running. 2. Check to see that the internal fan in the freezer is operating as well. 3. Check to see that the freezer light is going off when you close the door. If all of these things are working I would suggest call a technician.

Your Refrig/freezer should be set as follows:
Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.
Then check the door seals around the edges to see if any splits, tears or cracks have messed up the seal. This will cause your compressor to constantly run as it's trying to cool off the warm house is being sucked into the freezer (or Refrig). A sure sign the door seals are damaged is lots of ice in the freezer door area or water pooling in the bottom area of the refrigerator.
Wait about 4 hrs after you readjusted the Refrigerator/Freezer settings so everything settles down. If you still have problems then the coolant may need to be serviced (topped off) or the motor serviced/checked.
Don't procrastinate because a water heater and Refrig/freezer are the 2 largest energy users in your home- they run 24 hrs a day.
Hope this helps...
