Air was not cooling but indoor fan was working. Checked outdoor unit, fan not working and hearing like a vibrating/humming sound.


If the condenser coil is very dirty it may have tripped a manual reset high pressure switch try and locate it on the condenser , Also check breaker feeding unit. If it comes back on turn off at the thermostat and wash condenser coil with a garden hose .

How do i shut off and reset sub=zero 690 fridge?


Its not necessary when "Vacuum Condenser" light is blinking means That condenser is dirty. That light will come on if compressor running too long. Most common problem is that Evaporator coil in fresh food section is leaking freon. It still might keep temps ok, but compressor need to run much more to keep temperature you set. check back wall in fresh food section on left side at the middle, behind drawers. if you see moisture in one spot or a little bit of ice build up, then You will need to call people who can replace evaporator. It is pretty expensive fix. I made video how it looks to repair this problem. Thanks.

What purpose does the ignition condenser play .


The condenser (capacitor) has nothing to do with generating the hi-voltage, it is simply a filter. But it can leak or short and can affect the hi-voltage. If the condenser becomes questionable it is better to just replace it since it is so cheap.
Then I would use a point file to dress the points and reset them to the recommended gap. (or just replace, also cheap).
The coil itself could be suspect. Usually you can find the primary and secondary coil resistance online and check with an ohm meter to see if it is out of specs. The primary (- & + terminals) usually run .4 to 2 ohms. The secondary (- & coil tower) usually run 6K to 15 K Ohms.

I have to push the red reset button about once a day on my outside unit. What can cause this?


Depends on what the reset button is for.

If it is a low pressure cut off then you are probably low on refrigerant or have a dirty inside evaporator coil or bad airflow across the evaporator coil.

If it is a high pressure cutoff then you have a bad condenser fan motor, dirty condenser coil or it is over charged with refrigerant.

If it is an electrical overload reset button then the unit is pulling too many amps or over heating due to refrigerant loss and/or dirty condenser coil.

I'd wash out the condenser coil, ensure that the condenser fan is running, make sure you have a clean filter inside and that the blower is operating properly. If those things are OK and it still pops that reset then call a service tech to look it over for you.

UNIT WILL RUN FOR 15 MIN WITHOUT PROBLEMS THEN THE DISPLAY WILL GO BLANK AND UNIT WILL THEN BLOW OUT WARM AIR.


Check the condenser coil blower wheel. Soleus Air units use a cheap plastic wheel that comes apart after the warranty period. The condenser coil is the backside coil that is rejecting heat through the exhaust when unit is cooling.
The display going blank is a symptom of unit overheating, it's can't exhaust the heat buildup at the condenser, therefore the cabinet overheats.
If you find the blower wheel in pieces, I have a parts source for you:

The small copper line should not be really hot its supposed to be carrying liquid refrigerant which has already had the heat "pressed" out of it by the compressor and carried of by the air flowing over the condenser coil. This could indicate a few things; that your unit is overcharged, you have a mismatched evaporator coil and condenser, an ineffective condenser fan motor or a clogged condenser coil and as a result your compressor is shutting of due to an overload condition from the building heat and back pressure between the compressor outlet and the evaporator inlet.

First make sure your condenser is clean and that adequate air is flowing over the fins of the condenser coil. Then be sure your equipment is a matched system. A indication that your condenser fan motor is not at speed is slow starting a humming sound and excessive heat. In my experience this complaint is generally the result of a bad condenser fan motor that over heats and shuts of after a short period and the build up of heat in the liquid refrigerant line of course trips the compressor overload circuit- which by the way usually takes hours to reset. I hope you've already resolved this, but in case you haven't......
