Y refridgerator just shut off! I swtiched the circuit breaker and it's just dead right now

1) Make certain there is power to the unit, 2) Check the power switch in the unit area (a rocker switch), 3) If there is still absolutely no power (no lights, no clicks, no hum, dead) then check the power to the controller located in the top of the refrigerator section. The controller operates all the components, so if it has power but there is no outputs (ie. nothing works) then it is the problem. This is unusual so check items 1 & 2 first. A worst case scenario may require pulling the unit forward to access the house wall receptacle.

Sub zero plugged drain tube

remove all the drawers and unscrew the frame that holds the drawers. Free the the drain tube (need to unscrew the clamps that hold the tube to the back wall). Pull it up from the bottom hole where it drains into the pan and free it from the top drain pan. Most likely it's plugged with **** and fungus and yecchy stuff. Clean it out and reinstall it.

601R no lights come on no compressor

If all the lights are out, check the bulbs. They sometimes get build up on them and need to be wiggled to make better contact. a 1/8 turn will sometimes do the trick. If there is no light, the panel will not illuminate. It is back lit with the 4 bulbs under the plastic top panel. No light, no panel light. Compressor has a 4 minute delay. It is possible that a switches are bad at the bottom of door. Do a check with a multi-meter, one switch is always on, the other is always off, if you push it and the status changes, the switch is good.

I have a sub zero 601r that has stumped me. We had a power surge and the board went. I got a new one and installed it. The new one has error codes of 07 & 08, the service light flashes and the ICE...

I believe the codes in this particular case mean that there is an open or mixed up connection on the board, or that the board you got is not for the unit you own. You may try unplugging the unit for a few minutes to reboot the board and see if the codes disappear. Here is a description of the codes:

07 Freezer Cabinet Thermistor read open or shorted for 10+ seconds, or repeatedly read erratic temp's

08 Freezer Evaporator Thermistor read open or shorted for 10+ seconds, or repeatedly read erratic temp's

This is the Control Board for your unit (601f, 601r) Call 800-269-2609 to verify with serial number off model tag.

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sub-Zero 601R door handle is loose

My Sub is a 650S. Not sure your handle assy. is the same or not. But each of the 2 attachment points have a small 3/32" set screw on the bottom of each short piece between the vertical handle and the door. These set screws grab onto posts that are screwed into the door. There can be 3 points where the handle can work loose.
1. The set screw(s) have backed out and not holding tightly onto the door studs. 2. The studs in the door are loose and need to be tightened with a screw driver. 3. After loosening the handle via the set screws, when you look back into the cavity vacated by the studs from the door, (pivot handle clockwise past edge of door) you will see a Philips-head screw that secures the spacer to the handle. If the spacer is loose, tighten it with screw driver. Then mount back into door stud and tighten set screw. Problem Solved. Have a beer!!!

Have a sub-zero 601F about 10 years old and the 'vacuum condensor' light is flashing whenyou open the door in the same box as the temperature.

You should first vacuum condenser coil on top (looks like radiator coil in the car), then try to reset it by turning it off and back on. Otherwise it indicates that it's running too much and most likely it's not getting cold enough.

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 !!!
