I paid $900 to replace the compressor and evaporator. The evaporator went back out again within a year and labor was $300+, but part covered by parts warranty. Compressor lasted maybe another year (2-1/2 years from installation) and I didn't even bother to call repair service. Instead bought a 31.5 Kenmore made by LG for $1,399 with a small dent in the door. DON'T BUY SUBZERO.

Refridge temp


Lets go over the way a sealed system works. There is a highj side and a low side. The low side is the side that passes through the evaporator coils inside the machine. Most times on the freezer side only, but sub zero has independent sealed systems for each side. Once it goes throug the evaporator its then condensed into a liquid state, the high side. This is also the hot side. Well, lower pressures in the low side would logically mean lower temperatures. So for the refridgerator not to freeze more freon is used on it to keep the low side pressure higher than normal, giving the cooling effect verses freezing. So, and here is the bad part, if you are seeing ice build up in the refridgerator side you have a freon leak some where allowing the pressure to be less than required to keep it above freezing. Call a service technician and depending on how the model, sub zero warranty is parts and labor covered for the first 6, and only parts from the 6-12 year.

Why is vacuum condenser light blinking


this is usually a leak in the evap coil,if it's under 12 years old the coil is still under warranty.sub zero is a great machine,the only problem is that the evap coil behind the back wall in the fridge section leaks or a hole develops.the freon leaks out and the fridge section will continue to get warmer,the vacumm coil lite will come on.i've seen this happen to some machines that are 3 years old it happens.you need to get a tech in,he'll recover the gas,evacuate it,replace the coil and add new freon in,if it's under warranty it will be 650 to 750,or if not under warranty 11 to 12 hundred dollars to repair.

Although my sub zero 642 is holding the temperature, there is water leaking from underneath the refrigerator every day onto the floor. Sometimes it is heavier than others.


it's condensate from the evaporator coils. when the humidity collects on the coils, it should drain into a pan under the fridge that gets evaporated from the hot-side line. check to see if the condensate tube from the coils is still in the pan.

8 year old Sub-Zero model 690. Condensor coil leaking


When copper and aluminum are connected it cannot be welded, it has to be crimped. this is a problem that is not exclusive to sub zero, an all aluminum evaporator ( if it is in the refrigerator it's an evaporator) should resolve the problem nicely

Most likely you have a leak in the evaporator. Subzero warranties the parts for 12 years. Call them to find out what they will cover. They are agreat company and will be fair with you.
