Question about Sub-Zero Overlay Design 632/O Side-By-Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frost forming on top/front panel in freezer side subzero 632

Fridge and freezer maintain respective temps. Don't hear fan operation as we used to immediately after closing freezer door. Also used to be very difficult to break seal and reopen freezer door for several seconds after closing door; now it's very easy... too easy. Temp does maintain at 3 degrees and ice maker works fine. Door seal appears to be in good condition and making clean contact all around.

In your freezer section there are 2 door switches -- press each one. One turns off the light. The other turns ON the freezer evaporator fan. If the freezer compressor is running the evap fan should RUN when the switch is depressed. If not, the fan motor is defective OR the switch is defective. Easy to troubleshoot the switch - just pry it out with a screwdriver, short the terminals with a piece of insulated wire. If the fan runs, it's OK and the problem is the switch.

If it's the fan, it's not hard to replace. Get replacement motor, turn freezer control to off, remove food and shelves, then the back sheet metal panel. Fan is right behind the panel.

SOURCE: Subzero 561 Fridge side works, Freezer side working fine

Sounds like a cold control. It is located behind the panel and can be ohmed out to check for proper operation. You need to remove the light shield then after the shelves have been taken out remove the two screws that hold the fan shroud in place. This will allow back panel to come for so you can check the cold control. It should read as a short in all positions except off when the cap tubes have come to ambient temp. If you get the back off and see ice on only a small portion of the evaporator you have a sealed system problem and need a qualified technician.

SOURCE: SubZero 690: Frost builds up on ice chute flapper door

you have a bad seal, Take a dollar bill and slide it in between the door seal and the frig. slide it up and down to see if if has drag on it. If you find places it dont touch loosen the screws and adjust the hinges till it fits tight. In some cases you might have to tweak the doors if they need it.

Hii m habing problem with hotpoint ff200m Fridge is workng gfin but freezer not working. I have removed the panel to check. the fan and fan is working. Im still getting warning triangle light on


The freezer is the important side- if the unit can maintain fridge temps, but not freezer temps- you have a sealed system leak and are losing the refrigerant volume needed to create sufficient cooling. When you remove the freezer panel, there should be a fine layer of white frost across the entire length of evaporator tubing... GE Compressor WR87X20798

Freezer working fine, fridge not at all


Brand name and model would help but here is a guess. Most frost free refrigerators have the main cooling unit in the freezer area side. To get the fresh food side cold, there is a small fan in the freezer side that blows cold air to the fresh food side through a duct work or trap door. If that fan stops or fails for and reason, the first place you will notice the temp rise is in the fresh food section. See if you can hear the freezer fan running. You may need to push in the door switch for the freezer light to hear the fan because they sometimes run the fan wiring through the door switch. It may stop when door is opened.

Kenmore side by side fridge. Green temp light flashing for fridge side, freezer side working fine. Fridge side not cooling.


possibly frosted up at the air door between the fridge and freezer, or the fan in the freezer is not pushing cold air into the fridge side, if you can not hear a fan running in the freezer when the fridge is running (compressor on) then change out the fan

Fridge is warm, was collecting water inside. Freezer is working fine. Increased temp but not responding. It is a bottom freezer model


send the model number off of the fridge,if the freezer is working fine then no air is being blown up to the fridge section,all it does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge section so either the door was left open and this is very common with a bottom mount freezer or the evap fan isn't blowing or on some models there's a damper inside the fridge section,the damper door opens and closes to let cold air in,when it reaches temp. the door closes,sometimes the door gets stuck in the closed position or the open position and the fridge freezes or gets warm depending on where the door is.first thing open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap. fan motor,next look at the ceiling and on the packages,do you see frozen water droplets,if so the door was left open and the air ducts are froze up from the warm air getting in from the door being open and mixing with the cold air freezes up the air ducts,also stick your hand onto the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's like snow or frost on the inside back wall of the freezer you could have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on the model or last a bad damper,when you open the fridge door there are air ducts usually up top and in the middle you should feel cold air blowing in,this is your problem the air isn't making it into the fridge section.if the door was left open,unplug the fridge,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer heat up the back inside wall of the freezer and blow the hot air into the air vent holes in the back wall to melt out the air ducts,keep heating it up until you don't see any more water dripping,you can see the water dripping through the vent holes.so let me know what you find,send the model number and we can go from there.look up near the ceiling in the fridge section on the right hand wall and you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers,send the full model number so i can see what you have in your machine.

Freezer is at 0 degrees and my fridge is at 60 degrees


Keep 3 to 5 degree temp setting. And check defrost cycling is properly done. Due to frosting formed behind the freezer could restrict the function freezer fan which throw freeze air to refrigerant compartment. Unplug fridge till defrosting all frosting, and then plug it again. Thanks.

Whenever I open the door the beeper starts beeping and continues for 19 beeps regardless of whether I leave the door open or close it again. The beeps are at approx 1 second intervels


Hi,

Whenever the fridge is open it gives 19 beeps actually.In your case even when it is closed it is giving 19 beeps.This is the problem with control board.The control receives the signal when closing the door and stops the sound.Check the wiring connection to and fro the control board to the door.Control board costs high.This is small problem you can just unplug the wiring connection to the door to the board instead of spending more.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
