Hi,

Along with the service light, are you getting any fault codes with it (like EC and a number)? Under normal conditions, this would mean the the unit as a whole is running too much and needs to be cleaned. If cleaned and this is still an issue, you may need a certified person to look for cooling issue that only the computer is seeing. This can happen in a unit the is about 10-15 years old, normally in the fridge section. Do you have a ice ball or frost on the the back wall of the fridge section around the meat slide shelf? this would b a tell - tell sign of a cooling issue. If in doubt, call SubZero dIrectly at 800-888-7820 ask for a certified dealer to take care of you. Not every service company can work on the SubZero unit. (You want certified!)

I hope this helps.

No ice


The service light flashing usually indicates that there is a rise in the temperature of the machine, most likely caused by either the condensor coils being dirty or the condensor fan motor not running, either of which cause the compresor to run hotter than normal. The ice maker itself won't operate if the temperature rises above 10 degrees F, which is still well below freezing but its a fail safe to prevent flooding in the machine. I would take off the removeable grate and check the coils and clean them before I call anyone.

The ice cube indicator is blinking


From the manual:

The Control Center monitors refrigerator and

freezer temperatures as well as the ice maker

system. If there is a temperature or ice maker

problem, you'll be alerted by a flashing

SERVICE indicator light. This same SERVICE

light will also flash if the condenser needs

cleaning. Before calling for service, please

check and see if your condenser area needs

cleaning. Refer to Condenser Cleaning,
page 22.

CONDENSER CLEANING

In all Built-In models, the condenser is located

behind the grille. First, remove the grille. Then

using a soft bristle brush, vacuum to remove

dust and lint from the condenser. NOTE: To

avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to

vacuum in the direction of the fins (up and

down). Clean the condenser area every three

to six months.


CAUTION

Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity

off at the control panel. When you

clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid

injury from the sharp condenser fins.

Failure to clean the condenser could

result in temperature loss or mechanical
failure or damage.

Kennmore refrigerator is not making ice,but water


The control light flashes to indicate the infrared beam is being blocked. The flap on the opposite side blocks the beam when the door is open to prevent ice from being dropped on the floor rather than in the ice bin. If you pushe the flap in so it's flush with the liner (use care not to block the hole) the light should go from flashing to on in a steady state. If not, your electronics are bad and would need to be replaced. If the light does glow steady, then the problem is with your ice maker, water valve or ice maker fill tube.

Sub-Zero service manual


Here is a link to the error codes. If there is a fault condition these should be flashing on the display:

http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/06/29/error-codes-for-the-sub-zero-600-series-refrigerators/

One this to try is a hard reset: unplug and wait for a few minutes and re-plug back in. Sometime this resets the service condition and will then display the error codes.

Ice is displayed when the ice maker is turned on. Press the ice on/off and it should turn off.

Inside unit not blowing air


The flashing light may be a diagnostic light. So count the sequence of flashing lights and write the number down like this example. Short(flash),Short(flash), Long(flash) Long(flash), Long(flash.

Usually on the other side of the blower compartment door there is a list of possible failures that will coincide with the number of flashes.

My guess is that the system is low on refrigerant. This has caused ice to form on the evaporator coil that is above the furnace. The ice will block the air from moving through it.

You will need an EPA certified technician to recharge the system and locate the leak. Make sure to shut off the A/C and allow it to thaw before he/she arrives to services it.

There are other possibilities but this one is probably the most common. Good Luck!

U-Line Model ULN-CLR60B-00


call 1-800-779-2547, U-Line's tech support.

Has to be a bad a switch, wiring issue or maybe a control board. pull the service cover and see if the red light is lit on the board (or flashing). Light on (no flashing) indicates the board is powered up and no errors are occurring.
