690 series subzero freezer issue

Sub-zero 690 freezer will work for months at a time, then suddenly stop working (freezer side only). I power off the unit and then power it back up and works for a few more months perfectly. Originally thought someone left the door ajar but proved otherwise.

SOURCE: Freezer will Not Go Below 8 degrees and Alarm keeps sounding

Our manual says it can take our freezer up to 48 hours to get back to the correct temperature. I found that to be the case when we loaded it fully for the first time.

SOURCE: Ice Maker in Freezer in side-by-side not working

CHeck to make sure your freezer is 0 to 5 degrees. If it is warmer than that the water valve wont open to the ice maker. Have you replaced the water filter?

SOURCE: Frigidiare upright freezer has just stopped cooling

I was hoping it would be something like a cracked door seal, or a faulty thermostat, etc., but after reading the rest of your info, I've concluded the likely cause is a slow leak in the refridgerant line(s). I've seen many of these fairly new upright freezers with this problem.

Finding the leak is easy for a service tech to find, but the cost of the service tech isn't cheap and unfortunately, the repair cost will probably exceed the cost of a new freezer, but you can try to call a repair tech and see if they can give you a rough estimate over the phone or if they think it's worth fixing, etc.

My advice is to replace it. The cost of food you've lost has probably exceeded the price of a new freezer - and you've had this happen twice now. These days it seems that some appliances are being designed and built as "throw aways" due to the high repair cost.

Wished I had some better news for you, but unless you've got all the specialty tools; (charging gauges, vaccum pump, Freon, etc.) needed to do the repair yourself, along with the technical knowledge, it's likely not worth having the repair service contracted. Best Regards.

SOURCE: Freezer Temp keeps getting too high

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Sub Zero 700 suddenly stops after 12 years. Compresser is burning hot.


The compressor will normally be 100 to 110 degrees. I would suspect the thermostat or mouse damage in the freezer area. Also, if you keep it overstocked, to the point of poor air circulation, you could just have ice blockage. Put the frozen food in a styrofoam cooler or a good heavy corrugated box and give the unit a good full defrosting.

Sub zero side by side door won't open till about 10 minutes after we close it


When you open the door and then close it they will cause a vacuum. some freezers have a pressure relief. if the heater stops working on the relief it will cause this.

Ice maker is not making ice


Subzero ice makers arent all cut and dry. You could have an intermittent issue with either the ice maker itself, or the solenoid valve. SZs also often utilize a door switch which prevents the ice maker from operating if the door or the basket which the ice bucket sits in are not closed or in the proper position. If you have had other what would seem minor problems, that you have lived with, they can inadvertently affect different things. Most sub zero ice makers you can start manually by rotating the ejector comb clockwise as you look at the front of the icemaker, when the icemaker completes its cycle, do you get water to the ice maker, and do you get enough water, usually 140-150 ccs. If the ice maker continues rotating on its own after your initial start up, and receives the proper amount of water, either you have a cooling problem, a door or something is not in the correct closed position, you have a bad switch, or the ice maker is bad. If you receive little or no water at end of cycle, you have a bad valve.

Freezer always on


If the display reads -20 even though the freezer is set for 00, shut the unit off. If you can still hear the freezer compressor running, the board has a stuck relay for the freezer compressor. You will need a new board.
