It's probably low in refrigerant ,that means there's a leak in the seal system .Sub zero refrigerators have 10 years warranty on the seal system you should call them.

My sub zero has condensation forming inside the refrigerator


Hi - Did you take the vegetable drawers out to see if there is ice in back? If so, you might have a problem with the refrigerator seal. Defrost the ice and then check the seal of the fridge! If you don't have ice behind the drawers, still check to see if the seal is good. When you close the fridge door, it should be very hard to open if you try to re-open it quickly.

What is causing my sub zero moled 590 , made in feb 93 to gradually warm up?


yeah vacuuming behind the fridge is a good start this will help the fridge preform better as when dust builds up on the condenser it will cause the discharge to be hotter than it should be making the cooling in the case not as efficient. i would start by removing the pannel in the fridge and seeing if any ice is on the evaporator

Ice on back wall of fridge


The ice forming on the back wall of your sub zero indicates that you have a part failure. I don't recall exactly what the part is but as soon as you mention your symptoms to a sub zero repairman he'll know your problem. It's an easy fix. Everything comes out of the fridge, takes the inside back wall off and replaces the part. Not an inexpensive repair, however the part is guaranteed for 5 years so you may have an opportunity to have it replaced under warranty as I did.

Sub zero refrig - ice forming inside


The solution posted previously is TOTALLY WRONG. A Sub Zero ref doesn't have a heating element in the fresh food section. Only in the Frozen food section. It has 2 totally separate systems for each section. 2 Compressors and 2 evaporators. They share a condenser. If you are having ice build up in the refrigerator then the problem you are having is a refrigerant leak in the fresh food evaporator. You need to have a certified tech come out and replace the evaporator in your refrigerator section of your Sub Zero. Not sure what you are asking about the thermostat.

Sub-Zero 550 - freezer unit is chilling, but not freezing


Ice maker was intermittent at best - ice was often just a shell. After two failures to correct we had the ice maker (a Whirlpool - on a Sub Zero - Go figure) replaced. Then the paddle that detects the ice level broke. Next step a new GE.

Sub-zero Fridge not cooling and ice forming


You do have a leak and it will be in the evaporator. So call a factory authorized company and have it replaced.The warranty of a Sub Zero sealed system is full parts and labor for years 1-5 and parts only in year 6-12. Sub Zero expects a lot of their service companies so it behooves you to call one. To find an authorized company go to http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip= or call 800-222-7820
