Subzero 700BR Refridgerated Drawers Not Cooling

Over a few days the drawers began warming up. First thought was to remove the kick plate and vacuum the fins. Found that they were totally covered in lint / dust. I vacuumed them and put the kick plate back. The compressor still works but the drawers are not cooling. I have turned the unit off, reset the cooling temperatures and still the same problem. Is there an "easy fix"? That is, before calling in an appliance repair person. Not sure if it may be the thermostat? Thanks

Re: Subzero 700BR Refridgerated Drawers Not Cooling

If your unit is new enough to have an on/off button on the keypad, then put it into diagnostic mode by pressing and holding the "colder" button, the pressing the on/off button at the same time. the display should change and it should read a temp like 67r or 67e. you can scroll back and forth through the 2 temp readings by pressing the colder key. If the fridge has been running, the temp of the one ending in "e" should be no more than 38. If it is, then you most likely are low on freon and will need to have the evaporater replaced. The part will be covered under the 12 year parts warranty, but the labor will only be covered for 5 years.(from date of install, not date of manufacture printed on the lable) If you want to go into it more, take the lower drawer out and remove the 6 screws holding the panel to the floor inside the fridge, then slide out the floor panel. Look at the coils in there, and if you see a ball of ice on the left hand side, you have a freon leak and the above repair is what youll need to to. if its older than 5 years, ecpect to pay about$500 to have it's a mojor pain. If its less than a year out of the 5 year, call subzero...theyll probably take care of it for you anyways. Good Luck!

Sub zero freezer drawer frozen shut

Subzero freezer: We had all our drawers stuck, including the ice drawer. We turned off the refrigerator, took all the drawers out and defrosted the rails with a hair dryer. The ice drawer was misaligned, so we reset the allen screws on the left to be the correct width. All better!

We can't find the model number on our old fridge we are trying to recycle and get a rebate.

Good day,
Look under the front kick plate (grille). You will have to remove it. If not there, look for an embossed plate inside the fresh food compartment. It may be covered by drawers, so you will have to look.
A general rule is it is located in a place that would not require you to move the machine, and it is never on a door, because they can be replaced.

Subzero 601R Extremely Difficult to Open

This is a problem with freezers that have their drain outlet blocked.
Clean the doorseals anyway with a warm cloth and soapy water, then remove inner drawers. There should be an access panel at the rear to remove, and this will reveal the cooling coils and the drain at the bottom of these. You will need a short length of wire to clear the pipe. Make sure power is off while you do this.

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator

Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.

Ice acculation under crisper drawers

No. There is, however, a drain hole in the back center that tends to get plugged. Remove the lower two drawers and see if it is plugged. It drains to a pan under the unitand behind the kickpanel
