Question about Sub-Zero 611 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I can't open the freezer door on my sub zero
SOURCE: Sub-Zero model 211
First of all, the freezer temperature is the MAIN part of the unit. Either look for a new thermostat for your model unit and try switching it out, or look for a new fan motor for the freezer. The concept of the refrigerator is just like an A/C unit. It is designed to remove heat from one spot and andcarry it to a discharge place of NO imporatnce. I would definately start with the thermostat in the top of your refrigerator since it is likely the least expensive solution. Research your particular model number for proper fan replacement if it comes down to it. Also, check to insure that the freezer isn't frozen up behind the back wall. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with or if you need more assistance on the same issue.

Sounds like your freezer drain is blocked up. You will require a freezer drain heater kit for this repair. It was a common problem for this unit and can be a easy fix. However it does take some patience to fish the heater down into the drain pan.

Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at repairclinic.com. logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.

You probably need to defrost freezer - frozen moisture possibly stockedevap. fan motor in the freezer. Turn it OFF for 24 hours and start itover. Make sure no moisture condensation on the freezer compartmentsurfaces as walls and shelfs. If so wipe it out. Pull out and remove upper basket from the freezer, push fan switch which is located almost under ice maker.You have to hear evaporator fan motor start working. Still not work? Call to professionaltechie! Good luck! :)

There are different handles depending on serial number. The older of the two is at the top of the door. The screws are covered with a magnetic trim piece. You can remove this by putting tape on the chrome and pull up. You can then tighten the nuber two phillips head screws. The newer model is on the door itself. These are held on with small set screws accessed from the bottom of the handle. You may get by just tightening the set screws. If not you need to remove the handle by removing the set screws. You can then tighten the standoff and reatach the handle. For the 632 same procedure except it will be on the side.

It went into self protection mode. Just leave it closed and when the compressor cools down enough, it will start. Once the ref starts to cool, the lights and such will come back on.
All of this assumes that no failure was caused by the long run times when the door was open
