Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

SubZero 650 - fridge 36 to 50 deg, vac condensor light flashing

The Vacuum Condenser light has been flashing in the fridge for a couple of months. I vacuumed the condenser but it still flashes. the fridge temp varies from about 37 degrees (the setting) to 50 degrees. It will cool normally for several days then you open the door and see that it is 48 or 44 and may stay 44 for a day then cool normally for a couple of days.

the area where the door seals is warm to the touch.

the fan is running

How do I turn off and reset side-by-side Subzero fridge, to vacuum condenser?


Usually vacuum condenser light is on, not because of condenser coils dirty, but low on refrigerant unit, so compressor is running longer then usually. You can shut your subzero off at breaker box, if light will keep coming on in day or two, you will need to call service to replace evaporator. Most likely evaporator in Fresh food section has leak(at list its most common place). Check this video I made, even if Your Sub Zero sideXside it still will look the same about changing evaporator. Hope that was helpful.

The condensor is clean, but the vacum condensor lights keep coming on. What do I do?


when "vacuum condenser" or "service" lights r on, it means compressor is running more time than desired. most common issue that freon leaks out at evaporator in fresh food section. thats the most common issue with all subzero models. Hope thats helpful.

Subzero 650 accumulates and freezes water under the vegetable pan in fridge. Why wont it drain through to the tray on bottom of cabinet?


This freezing can be caused by some debris in the drain slowing the drain, or it can be caused by a weak fridge compressor, dirty condenser, or refrigerant leak somewhere in the system causing the cooling cycles to run too long and freezing the drain. this is usually accompanied by a "service" or "vacuum condenser" warning flashing between the temp readings in the display. If you have one of these warnings, you are probably in for a big repair, the parts will be covered under a 12 year warranty depending on the age of the unit and only if you use an authorized servicer. If no warning lights are present, you can order a fridge defrost drain heater kit and install it, and that will keep the drain line warm so that it doesn't freeze and back up. the easiest way to defrost that drain is to purchase a small handheld steamer form a drug store and use steam to clear the line. Good luck!

My 12 year old subzero fridge (650) is not getting cold. this morning i discovered ice behind the fresh food drawer, removed it, it was running fine, temp 35. now tonight the temp is 51. freezer is fine....


Is it flashing vacuum condenser? Ice behind the crisper drawer shouldn't effect the temp. What is it set at? You can go to www.subzerospecialists.com and click on Tech Help for additional info.

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.

My Subzero Condenser fan runs constantly - but coils are clean


If it is similar to mine at home (Model 550) the condensor fan is designed to run continuously, even when both the freezer and refrigerator are shut off. There is no control or switch in the fan circuit, so it just runs whenever the fridge is plugged in to the wall. It uses about 56 watts.

Sub-Zero 611/O not cooling


sorry but i do not have experience with hte sub-zero product line, I can reccomend to you thought that it is a very expensive piecce, and replacing it ( with another sub-zero) may prove to be a more costly option then the repair, Generally a Qualified subzeroe technician, (at least inmy area) is strictly a SubZero, specialist, so although you may pay a premium for the service it will be backed by the manufacture, and only 6-7 years old i cant imagine a problem that would justify replacing the unit.Althougth Im a Do-it-your self advocate, there are somethings that are generally best to leave to a professional opinion. This would be my reccomendation

Subzero 630 hot door jamb


If the door jambs are hot, that is either a dirty condensor or a dead condensor fan motor. Make sure the condensor is vacuumed and check to see if the condensor fan is spinning. It should be running anytime either compressor is on. You can clear the service light by holdint the "alarm: button for 15 seconds or turning the unit off and then on again.
