Question about Sub-Zero 690 Side by Side Refrigerator

Vacumm Condenser light flashing

Have a 2000 subzero 650. Two years ago light was flashing and temp rising. Tech replaced sealed system which was leaking. Light started flashing again two years later, but temp remains good. Tech checked sealed system and said there was no leak. Cleaned condensers and reset unit. Two days later light is flashing again.

What else can cause this to happen? What does it actually mean when th light is flashing and the condensers are clean and temp is fine. I'm not sure I understand what triggers that warning message to begin with. Does it mean the compressor is running too long? or????

Thanks in advance.

Hello.

Your unit is sensing that the condenser fan is running at a lower rpm than it should. that is how you get the signal. You will need to replace the condensor motor if your coils are cleaned already. That is the only cure for your problem. I hope this helps you out.

My 12 year old subzero fridge (650) is not getting cold. this morning i discovered ice behind the fresh food drawer, removed it, it was running fine, temp 35. now tonight the temp is 51. freezer is fine....


Is it flashing vacuum condenser? Ice behind the crisper drawer shouldn't effect the temp. What is it set at? You can go to www.subzerospecialists.com and click on Tech Help for additional info.

My 650/f sub-zero is not cooling in the refer but the freezer is working fine?


Subzero uses two compressors so the freezer is a separate system. The first thing to do is clean the condenser. You can find instructions on how in the owners manual or at subzero.com. They even have videos. If that doesn't take care of it you could have a bad condenser fan motor a sealed system issue or a temperature sensor issue. Also I have seen if you put something tall enough to push up on the light cover on the top shelf that can stop the evaporator fan at the top of the refrigerator section.

Subzero 650 fridge temp says 34 but is really about 50


Is your thermometer in a glass of water? That's the way to get an accurate temperature reading. You may want to call an authorized servicer.
