It is just a message advising you to clean the condenser behind the top access panel. Basically an "idiot light" kind of thing although it should be cleaned about once a year

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.

Vaccum condenser light flashing on sub zero


Usually the problem is not with the dirty condenser. Most likely there is freon leak at evap coils on fresh food side. You can charge it with freon to proper pressures, but it will leak out; or replacing evaporator - thats most common place where freon leaks out. Here is my video how i do it. Thanks.

Sub zero 690 model if doors are not flushed right , my fridge door is little out think that is the reason flashing clean the condenser light comes after 12 hrs or so .The fridge is worth 10,000 so how can...


It is perfectly normal for the refr door on a side by side Subzero to stick out a little further than the freezer door. That light could mean several things. If you have vacuumed the condenser then you should call a repairman to look at it.

Sub zero wine cooler showing 78 and76 and says


Clean the condenser located under the unit. This may help. However, more serious problems involve refrigeration leaks shorted thermistors and non running fan motors. All are common. I recommend an authorized Subzero tech for this unit if cleaning the condenser does not help.

Sub zero freezer too warm


I believe the freezer has to get down to 7 degrees or lower for icemaker to harvest. Clean your condenser and blow it out. If that doe not fix it you will need service for sealed system
