Question about Sub-Zero 561 / F

1 Answer

Fridge not cooling

We are in the Northeast and just recently got our power back after being out for 10 days. Our SubZero Model 561 (side by side) is not cooling properly. The freezer works just fine, which tells me that the compressor is okay. We cranked the setting up to 10 but it has been 36 hours now and the inside is barely cold...almost warm.

Any suggestions as to what i can look for?

Sub Zero 561 Refrigerator side is not cooling." the freezer side is working perfect.."


pop the top panel and clean your condenser,this is the most common problem,other than that it could be your compressor or refrigerant leak.this model i believe is two separate systems so one will not effect the other/. 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.

Subzero model #561, freezer is warm, water leak


Check to see if the freezer fan is running. Push in the two switches at the top. The light should go out and if the freezer is powered on the fan should come on. The icemaker runs on temperature so no cold means no ice. Check for ice build up around the evaporator. Could be a defrost issue or a sealed system problem. As for the water, is it the floor of the unit or the floor of the house? Is the drippan in place or sitting on the floor? Also check the condenser fan motor. If this is all greek to you, you should probably call a factory authorized servicer.

Our Subzero 561 ( -15 yrs. old) just started making a rattling noise. It sounds like a fan is hitting ice. It stops when we open the freezer door. When we look up in there, ice is caked on. What steps...


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Subzero Model 550, freezer not working properly


Blow out the condenser with an air compressor. Make sure the evaporator coil is not frosted up, if so, the drawer may naot have been closed properly, or you may have a defrost problem, (timer, terminator, etc). Possible freon leak in the high side drain loop. Compressor may not be pumping efficiently, could have a bad condenser fan motor.

Subzero 690 flashing EC and service


Rhino, this is yet another simple fix. You need to call subzero and let them know that your ref section is not cooling properly. 9 out of 10 times it will be a problem with the evaporator coil needing replacement. Sub is aware of this issue and usually picks up the tab for this repair.
