    Is a bad thermostat control an easy fix. Can it be done oneself or does it require a repairman.

If your temperatures are OK, then you have a bad thermostat control.

Why is my sub zero fridge model 590 warming up?


Hi fridges will warm up on the outside as they remove heat from the inside. excessive heat with not extreme cooling inside the fridge indicates a possible degridation of coolant fluid or a leak. as the motor tries to cool the fridge the thermostat inside stays on as the tempreture inside has not been reached. if you hear the motor/ pump continually running this will indicate a cooling problem.

Our sub-zero refrigerator has not been cooling properly and mold builds up near the bottom


My Sub Zero 561 would lose cooling in the main fridge area over time and I would usually turn the thermostat down. This helped but I'd get an ice buildup on the back wall of the fridge, especially if it was packed full of stuff and didn't allow for air movement. I finally removed everything, removed the back panel to the fridge, and discovered that the entire rear area was a solid block of ice. A defrost fixed it but I had to turn up the thermostat to keep it from coming back. Now it works great after driving me crazy for years.

I left the bottom freezer of my 650 ajar and when I returned the unit was producing a loud buzz - presumably a motor or fan. It turns off if I pull the shelf that contains the ice tray forward.


When the door is left open alot of condensation forms in your fridge which freezes and ices up. This build-up will gather around your evaporator fan which sometimes stops it from working or sometimes the fan blades scrape on the ice built up.

Best to manually defrost your freezer. Empty your freezer. Turn fridge off. Put a pot of boiling water and close the door. Leave for some time to defrost the ice. You can repeat this a couple of times to defrost the ice. Otherwise you can use a blow-dryer as well.

When you defrost, and turn your fridge back on. Everything should go back to normal.

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


I had to take my switch apart and clean and lube it and it worked fine. Or just replace the switch. It may have gotten some sticky ketchup in it like mine did.

How do you reset the fridge to remove the vacuum condensor light on our subzero 690 refrigerator


You have to press the unit off button inside of the refrigerator and then press it again to turn the fridge back on. The light should go away after that

Sub zero 700tc/fan runs but no compressor


A check of your breaker is in order. From your description the breaker could be week. If so the breaker my not cut off all the way and still allow enough power through to opperate the fan but not the added load of the compressor.

I have seen this a few times and it always confuses me too. Check the circuit by maybe moving the circuit on the breaker to a different one then retry it and see if the problem is gone. If it is then replace the breaker if not then its time to use a volt meter or call a repair person. And this is because there are a lot of what ifs that have to be covered to get to the root of the problem if this is not the trouble..

Please lket me know whow this works out. Rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.
