SUb-Zero 650 fridge lighting issue


Just a bad door switch. Turn the unit off, remove the upper grill, then remove the cover over the switches. there are 2. 1 with a black backside, and one that is all white. you want to replace the all white one with a new all white one. it just has 2 wires, doesn't matter what order they go in. pull em off and pop that thing out, then snap the new one into place. all of this should be done with the power off and the door open. Good Luck!

My sub zero 690 has the fridge & freezer light out as well as the screen


Well the most likely cause is 2 bad door switches, though I rarely see the door switch go bad in the freezer. At the top of the door openings you will see 2 switches in the freezer and the fridge. If you pull down the grille and remove the cover over those switches, the light switch will be the one with the white back, and the fan switch will be the one with the black back. I would try changing the switch in the fridge, and maybe start in the freezer by changing at least 1 bulb before blaming the switch. If that 1 new bulb doesn't light, change that switch too.

No power - seems to be totally off


check the breaker box and check to see if you have another plug outlet that's out with a gfi on it,i've found this before the electrician wired the outlet for the sub zero off of an outlet with a gfi on it,the fuse popped on the outlet and killed the power to the subby,usually if you remove the top front grill and look on the right hand side you'll see the plug for the machine,you can plug a light or anything you have handy and check to make sure it's not the fridge and it's an electrical problem,if the fridge and the freezer are both out most likely it will be an electrical problem because they are like two machines built into one,freezer and fridge are separate not like a regular fridge.if you do find that it is on a gfi circuit have a separate line run up just for the sub zero.if the problem is with the sub zero it would be wise to call in a tech that works on them,could be a bad computer board but they will do some checks and figure out what's up,they are a little complicated to work on.good luck

Subzero 695. The freezer is fine, the fridge is getting warm because the lights are staying on when the door is shut. I have taken the bulbs out for now to save my food in there. Any suggestions as to...


Hello Parnn,

I understand thating you are having to problems with you refrigerator one the lights are staying on, second the fridge is not getting cold.

The lights are not turning off because of the light switch. The switch needs replaced it is located on the door jamb so that when the door closes the light goes off.

The secound problem is usually the fan located with the evaperator coil. This fan pulls the air thru the coil and pushes it into the fridge section. When the unit is running you should be able to hear the fan running in the back of the freezer. If the fan is not running the freezer will stay cold but the fridge will not recieve any cool air.

In order to get parts for Sub-Zero Refridgerators you must contact them at 1-800-222-7820 and they will send you to their authorized parts distrubitors.

Breaker that powers my sub-zero side by side keeps popping off


The refrige has a name plate what is the rated amps for the refrige and what size breaker u have for it. How far is the refrig from the breaker panel. If you give me more info i can help with this. I can only suggest now or guess 1.) Breaker is bad 2.) Compressor motor is starting to fail. With an A.C Ammeter right at the breaker panel go to the breaker that supplies power to your refrig and measure how much amps it is using and compare it to the name plate specifications

Sub zero 700tc/fan runs but no compressor


A check of your breaker is in order. From your description the breaker could be week. If so the breaker my not cut off all the way and still allow enough power through to opperate the fan but not the added load of the compressor.

I have seen this a few times and it always confuses me too. Check the circuit by maybe moving the circuit on the breaker to a different one then retry it and see if the problem is gone. If it is then replace the breaker if not then its time to use a volt meter or call a repair person. And this is because there are a lot of what ifs that have to be covered to get to the root of the problem if this is not the trouble..

Please lket me know whow this works out. Rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.
