Your problem might be serious enough to warrant a repairman's visit. But this was my experience: An official Sub Zero repair company in NYC told me this: If the "vacumm condenser" light keeps flashing after you've opened and cleaned the condenser grill, then either pull out the plug for the Sub Zero refrigerator or turn off the circuit breaker (or fuse) in your house that leads to it, wait for some minutes and then turn back on. It is NOT enough to turn off the unit using its own internal on-off switch - it has to be totally disconnected from the AC. I did so, waited 15 minutes, turned back on, and it worked!! I had vacuumed the condenser grill twice but the "vacuum condenser" light kept flashing AND the refrig would go bonkers if set below 38. Now the flashing warning is off and it's down to 35. Great !!!

Have a sub-zero 601F about 10 years old and the 'vacuum condensor' light is flashing whenyou open the door in the same box as the temperature.


You should first vacuum condenser coil on top (looks like radiator coil in the car), then try to reset it by turning it off and back on. Otherwise it indicates that it's running too much and most likely it's not getting cold enough.

The fridge shows vaccum condenser?


It is just a message advising you to clean the condenser behind the top access panel. Basically an "idiot light" kind of thing although it should be cleaned about once a year

Sub-zero 601 fridge won't get below 42 degrees


You both sound like you need a qualified factory repairman out there. If there is a blockk of ice on the back wall you have a low charge in the refrigerant system. It is most likely the evaporator or cooling element as you call it which has a five year parts and labor warranty, then parts only for years 6-12. Here is the link to the factory locator site. http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=02030 or call 800-222-7820.
