Was able to get an Authorized Subzero company here this morning with NO emergency service charge. Turns out the fan needs to be replaced and it also needed freon.

SOURCE: why does freezer get cold but not refrigerator side?

Check the freezer temp (available in most grocery and home improvement stores). The temp should be between 0-10 degrees F (not just barely below freezing).

SOURCE: refrigerator won't get cold enough

My fridge is running but not cold enough: Start out with the easy stuff first...make sure the lights go out when you close the door(s), make sure the doors are closing properly and the gaskets are closing fully and not torn. Check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is working, this fan blows the cold air around. If the fan is not working, possible bad fan motor - check for power to the fan motor and also check the fan switches around the door openings, ( if your fridge has these switches, not all do ). A common problem cropping up in the last several years has been the air damper not opening up and allowing the cold air from the freezer to be blown into the fresh food section . For many years the air damper was manually operated and now we have motorized controlled or temperature controlled or thermister and electronic boards controlling air dampers, and if this device sticks closed the FF section will normally warm up. An example picture of "one" style and an air damper ( called a diffuser by Whirlpool ). Next would be to check the condenser tubing, a good place to start is to make sure the condenser coils are not built up with dust!! Make sure the condenser fan motor is also working properly. Check for any "clicking on and off" noises from the compressor, is the compressor running.

The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost, this frost will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air around. The fan blade can also hit this frost and either become noisy or stop altogether. Locating the defrost timer can be tricky....they are often hidden behind the back bottom corners of the fridge at the bottom, in the last few years the timers have been located in the ceiling of the fresh food section, and some behind the cold control cover. Once you locate the defrost timer, slowly turn the screw like wheel in the middle of the defrost timer with a straight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. You are now in defrost. If the defrost heater(s) comes on now, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater(s) does not come on, you can ohm test the defrost heater for continuity or volt test for 120 volts to the heater(s). If you have no power to the defrost heater(s) you can also bypass the defrost thermostat to see if the defrost heater will come on, join the 2 wires together to bypass the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad, defrost the fridge with a hair dryer, replace the defrost heater* and defrost thermostat. If the defrost timer seems "hot" to the touch or is noisy ( like a ticking or screeching noise )...replace it.

My subzero is cold, but not really cold


it could be the damper door isnt opening fully due to ice or the cold control is bad,or the motherboard that electronically operates the unit is bad,clue:: if you have recently burned out lights in the refrigerator and the digital temp read-out is now out this is the board gone bad,if you replaced the lights and now they dimly flash when you open the door and you have a rapid clicking noise in the rear area its the relay trying to latch,but the burned board wont let it,you will see the burned area upon removal on the plastic cover and board trace is burned away

You probably have a leak in the evaporator and there is not enough refrigerant left to cool properly. Sub Zero has a 12 year warranty so You may want to replace the unit. You need to call a servicer to check it out.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

I have a 14 year old subzero 550 bottom freezer and it never gets cold enough. I vacuumed/cleaned the filter area, but I don't think it helped much. Anything else I should do? The problem however is not...


The compressor might be weak to pump the refrigerant to the top area resulting in poor cooling.

There could be a block in the system and the flow of refrigerant is blocked resulting in poor or partial cooling.

!4 years! It has out lived it's useful days and requires replacement and you could save on power bill by replacing the same with a new one.

Cheaper things are costlier on the long run!

SubZero fridge problems


Ice buildup on the back left wall is the sign of an evaporator leak. Not something you can fix yourself, at some point it is going to be completely out of gas, I would call for service now
