Question about Sub-Zero 661/F Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My subzero side by freezer/fridge has a horrid squeek

On the lower hinge. Liquid Silicone spray has not stopped the squeek.
Anyone with another idea?
Surely I don't have to take that 45pound door off and change the hinge?

thanks for any help some one might have? Chili

Try putting some Vaseline onto the door cams, it is probably just the plastic cams rubbing, they may need to be replaced but the Vaseline trick is free. You will need someone to open the door and lift it a little to make some space between the two cams, put the Vaseline on with a Q-Tip onto the two mating surfaces of the cams.

Hello. My freezer part of my subzero 690 is getting too cold. The temperature has dropped to -8. My normal setting is zero. I tried raising the setting to +5 with no effect. I tried turning the whole...


check u tube for problem solving videos.

There are a number of great troubleshooting u tube videos, which show you what to look for and many of the fixes are really simple and are universal for all fridges. The simplest is that you left a door open, moisture got in and froze causing ice to build up, so you have to thaw it totally, not just turn it off. I moved my older subzero and think one of the tubes must have been knocked and it lost its Freon, so stopped cooling. The cost of having it recharged was so prohibitive (ie environmental disposal issue meant it had to be moved to a special location fixed and moved back at my expense or Subzero said it was a closed unit and you had to replace the whole thing$ 1,300 for the condenser alone) so, I tossed it + bought another used one until my renovation was done.

Generally with any fridge, there seems to be 2 possible Simple reasons:
1. DEFROST MODE PROBLEM it is stuck in defrost mode
. a)the defrosting tube is plugged

b)The tube or thermostat is frozen, most likely because someone left the door open or the seal is poor;

c) termostat defective-untube video explained how to test circuit;
4. CONDENSER ISSUES: the condenser coolant gas is low and can be easily recharged- see the u tube how to video;
5. Condenser is dirty and cannot breathe- vacuum it;
6. The condenser overheated and needs replacing . 4-6 will have the condenser blowing cool not warm air.


I have had this problem with the fridge portion of my SUBZERO bottom freezer and Subzero (and a repair person ) gave me some good advice, which should also apply to yours, but you might want to call them yourself:
1. Simplest fix- if the defrost tube is blocked or frozen, the defrost cycle will stick on preventing cooling (either freezing up or heating for the defrost cycle not cooling); Some subzero models are especially prone to this. I could see part of my tube inside the fridge on the back wall close to the bottom where it drains and removed the panels to expose and clean it;
2. You should pull it out and unplug it to get it to defrost fully. After doing that once, I made sure my fridge was on a separate circuit or switched!! Yours might not be the same, but on mine the tubes run through the fridge to get to the freezer so both parts have to defrost;
3. Subzero fridge and freezer each have their own independent condensers, so you might be hearing the condenser for the fridge running, even though one part is turned off.
4. Check the thermostat to see if it is working. There is a good u tube video on this.
5 Some of the u tube videos show how to "recharge" the Freon. Subzero told me these are sealed units and could not be done, so regardless of the problem, the condenser had to be replaced. The subzero repair person was really helpful + checked the Freon or gas level (Mine was old enough that it was Freon not the newer environmental stuff) so they would have to haul it away to drain and recharge it + then the condenser might still have to be replaced.


Good luck

Subzero model 532 fridge not cooling well, freezer ok


Did u check condenser on the top behind the grill? If it's clean, check unit for evaporator freon leaking. Light....Possibly bad bulbs behind that plastic light cover or light switch - one of them located on upper portion of door frame.

Fridge door squeeking.


Best option is a silicone lubricant spray from Radio Shack or Maplins depending which country you are in

It is clean and easy to apply and works its way into the hinge.

Also it does not smell of oil

Ice buildup on the back left wall is the sign of an evaporator leak. Not something you can fix yourself, at some point it is going to be completely out of gas, I would call for service now
