Re: sub zero frig

First check the condenser up top behind the grille and on the right side. If it is clogged with dirt, shut it down and use a vacuum to remove the dust. If tis clean then look at the display. Does it read "service" or "vacuum condenser" Also, whhat temp does the freezer read on the display? Lastly is it saying anything like "EC40"? These may be clues as to the problem. Let me know about this and I can give you more help if necessary. Good luck!

Sub-zero is not freezing

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Sub zero 632 s frig freezing everything

First, is the temp really 40??  Get your outside thermometer and stick it in there.  You may get a surprise.  If so, see if the thermostat will respond to any changes.  It is possible that either the sensor or the electronics have gone bad...I'd vote for the sensor.  
the other possibility might be low gas...but I'll want to see what the temp in the unit is and whether the changes you make do anything.

Sub-Zero 550 - freezer unit is chilling, but not freezing

Ice maker was intermittent at best - ice was often just a shell. After two failures to correct we had the ice maker (a Whirlpool - on a Sub Zero - Go figure) replaced. Then the paddle that detects the ice level broke. Next step a new GE.

Freezer not cold enough to freeze items solid

Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.
