Most likely that light is caused by a refrigerant leak somewhere in the fridge system. Most likely the fridge evaporator, but you would need a leak detector to confirm this. It could also be that the fan to cool the compressors is not running all the time, or that the compressor itself is weak. Do you have any error codes? Is there a ball of ice forming on the back wall of the fridge section on the left side towards about halfway down from the top? what is build date on the serial tag, located on the frame of the fridge inside the freezer door at the top. Good luck, hope this helps.

How do i shut off and reset sub=zero 690 fridge?

Its not necessary when "Vacuum Condenser" light is blinking means That condenser is dirty. That light will come on if compressor running too long. Most common problem is that Evaporator coil in fresh food section is leaking freon. It still might keep temps ok, but compressor need to run much more to keep temperature you set. check back wall in fresh food section on left side at the middle, behind drawers. if you see moisture in one spot or a little bit of ice build up, then You will need to call people who can replace evaporator. It is pretty expensive fix. I made video how it looks to repair this problem. Thanks.

Is it possible to clean the condenser with low velocity air compresser . My sub zero 690 side by side fridge flashing VACUME CONDENSER SERVICE.

Yes but this will create a dusting nightmare for the rest of the house. By just cleaning the condenser is not enough for the computer has no knowledge of said act. You must rest the computer after cleaning, your model has a picture of a bell on the panel of the control. Push and hold that bell for 10 seconds, you should hear a beep and the service light will disappear. If this returns, this means either the condenser is dirty or the computer has detected that it takes too long to reach your desired temp. But reset first, less work and see what happens.

Good Luck

Guanaquito you suggested I spray with water my 690 subzero condenser or with degreser . It won't do the demage to anything if I use water .Thank you . Vacume is not helping but everything else is working...

You can use a chemical degreaser on the condenser, just be sure to unplug the unit and put paper towels down around it to absorb the grease and cleaner, and let it air out well before plugging it back in and turning it on. Water wont help anything if its grease buildup. if your fridge is not cooling, it's most likely some other problem though. it's very rare that a dirty condenser causes cooling issues on a 690 Good Luck!

It is perfectly normal for the refr door on a side by side Subzero to stick out a little further than the freezer door. That light could mean several things. If you have vacuumed the condenser then you should call a repairman to look at it.

It is likely the condenser fan is not functioning. You may need to open the compressor access panel to check. If you can hear the compressor running, and the condenser feels warm, the fan should be running. If it isn't, it probably needs to be replaced. Another symptom is the area around the doors feels warm.

Sub zero 690 side by side refrigerator . Vacume the condenser light keep on showing after 10 or 12 hrs. Is it possible if both side holding the temprature then it could be door seal?Could some one help me...

That light comes on when the unit is running more than normal to maintain temperature. Have you vacuumed the condenser coil at the top right of the unit? It could be that simple. There is also a fan up top to move air thru the condenser that may be stalling out and not circulating air. The most expensive cause would be a sealed system issue such as a refrigerant leak. With a replacement cost somewhere around $10,000 you may just be better of locating your local authorized service center.

Cleaned the condenser on model 690 sub zero side by side after 12 hour or so it says vacume the condenser......thanks


Is this still an issue as this post is a month old? Was the computer cleared after cleaning? If not, hold the (bell) button for 10 seconds and you should heard a beep. This will clear the computer (the fault from the screen). If it returns you may have a cooling issue only the computer noticed, you made need a service tech to look at this. But only if this continues.

I hope this helps.
