We have a black Sub Zero refrigerator (Model 550, circa 1990). The outside surface is some kind of plastic, I think...maybe glass, but I don't think so... We've taped things to the front of it over the years, but now we're selling the house and I need to clean it up. There's lots of residue from the tape left on it after I took all our little sayings and pictures down. Can you recommend something for cleaning it and removing this paint residue without damaging the surface?

i coud not see the model # of your sub zero . some models like th 550 / 650 use 2 compresors . freezer system maybe ok when fresh food is not . . first thing to do is ck the cond coil up on top and clean it and mk cure the fan is cooling the coil . you moy have a cold control failure . and the fresh food comp may be low on gas . these are the most common cause for your problem .. mm feed back pls ..
set freezer for 0 deg and clean the coils on top . and make sure the fan up top is working . very important .. mm 550 are r12 and may be low or refergent . this is somthing you may need a service tec to ck but do the cleaning first and see how it works. mm
The right side of the freezer has a drain that is plugged with ice. When the freezer defrosts the water runs down the inside of the box and onto the drawer rails, where it then freezes. The drain tube is normally kept ice free by an aluminum strap wrapped around the copper defrost tube in the freezer heat exchanger, which runs down into the drain tube. Over time the copper defrost tube gets some surface corrosion and the aluminum strap doesn't get warm enough during the defrost cycle to melt ice in the tube. If you can get it apart, you can clean up the tub surface with steel wool, or buy the electric defroster for the drain tube to replace the aluminum strap.
Clarkk I have seen this many times. Your drain is clogged. If you pull the drawers out and pull the top cover you will see the evap. On the cover you will find a nozzle that goes to the drain. Use some compressed air and blow out the drain. In some cases there will be some silicone that will need replaced. You can get a food grade silcone sealant at a hardware store. Hope this helps.
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.
