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.

SOURCE: sub zero refrig - ice forming inside

The solution posted previously is TOTALLY WRONG. A Sub Zero ref doesn't have a heating element in the fresh food section. Only in the Frozen food section. It has 2 totally separate systems for each section. 2 Compressors and 2 evaporators. They share a condenser. If you are having ice build up in the refrigerator then the problem you are having is a refrigerant leak in the fresh food evaporator. You need to have a certified tech come out and replace the evaporator in your refrigerator section of your Sub Zero. Not sure what you are asking about the thermostat.

The sub zeros I have worked on have a compressor for each side. Is your fan blowing. You may have a defrost timer or heater. Possible low on gas but thats not very likely the sub zeros are made very well. Check to see if fan is blowing. Check condensor coils on top to see if they are clean. Check to see if your condensor fan is blowing. These are just possoble problem you can check if every thing looks good. Call a service tech ask for free estimate on repairs. Rus

SOURCE: Light on refirgerator side doesn't come on unless I tap switch.

The replacement light switch part number is Sub Zero Part # 3060140- this is a common problem. I just changed mine - very easy to do.

My 10 year old Sub-Zero refrigerator works very well except for two issues: 1. I continuously have from 1/2 to 1 inch of frost build up in the center of the back wall. I have cleaned the refrigerator...

Hello Teresa,
I'm going to address the main issue and that is the frost ball in the refrig. That is due to a leak of some of the refrigerant having leaked out causing the frost ball.A company could come out and recharge the refrigerant and that would work for a while till it leaked again. What it takes to fix it properly is to replce the coil in the refrig. then recharge the refrigerant. That typically cost around $1,200.00 but will stop it from leaking ,and avoid paying $200 to have it recharged every year or less.

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.

Freezer below temperature. Set to 0F and is at -20F.

If this is just a freezer then the likely problem is a failed thermostat. If it is a combo then check the refrigerator settings and possibly a door leak in the refrigerator. The refrigeration is shared between both sides and to my knowledge never 100% on either side.

Good Luck,

I have a subzero frig, 601R, after puuting in a new gasket around the door, it doesnt close all the way. The gasket looks perfect. Is there an adjustment on the door hinges? thanks

Congratulations on being able to install one of these beasts. You may have a gasket dragging on the hinge side of the door. Apply some petroleum jelly to this side of the gasket so that it doesn't hang up on the ref cavity. Make sure that all your screws are screwed all the way in. There are no adjustments. Use a blow dryer to heat gasket to get any wrinkles out. careful not to scorch the gasket.

Sub-zero Fridge not cooling and ice forming

You do have a leak and it will be in the evaporator. So call a factory authorized company and have it replaced.The warranty of a Sub Zero sealed system is full parts and labor for years 1-5 and parts only in year 6-12. Sub Zero expects a lot of their service companies so it behooves you to call one. To find an authorized company go to or call 800-222-7820
