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.

SOURCE: Need to change the light bulbs

The light shield has two tabs, one on each side. They may be on the front or back of the shield, It fits either way. Pull the tabs down and slide the shield back and forth a couple of time and it should drop from the four pegs that hold it in place. You will have access to the bulbs. You can go to http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=02030 and find a parts distributor near you or take a bulb to the store and match it. Make sure you get the same wattage rating.

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


Hi,
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

"Vacuum Condenser" light on this refrigerator will appear if you have any kind of issues - some of their models would have "Service" light instead of Vacuum Condenser. As My expirience shows Most likely Your Fresh food section is low on refrigerant - Evaporator might leak freon - so what we would have in this case - compressor runs for longer time then suppose to - as a result "Vacuum Condenser" or (some models) "Service" appears. Another sigh of low freon pressure people would notice ice build up on the back wall of the refrigerator section on the left side on the middle. I post video on my YouTube chanel, so u can check how to fix it properly.

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.

MOST LIKELY FRIDGE SECTION IS LOW ON FREON! "VACUUM CONDENSER" WILL COME ON IF COMPRESSOR RUNS MORE THAN IT SHOULD BE. COMMON THING IS LEAKING EVAPORATOR COILS IN FRESH FOOD SECTION. CHECK MY VIDEO, I HOPE IT HELPS.

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


Hi,

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.
