    I can hear the compressor working normal and stable , I think something could break when the refrigerator fell to the ground, I will disassemble the interior to check the fans, thermometer or sensor, I will tell you thank you very much.

How soon did you start it up after you moved it & put it in its place?
If you plugged it in to soon after moving. Oil may have still been up in the wrong place of the compressor. Unplug it for about an hour. Then plug it back in. By plugging it in to early after moving you could have burnt up the compressor. This happens often.

SOURCE: cooling

Check if the condensar ( outside fan unit) is getting enough free ventilation. IF there is no free air flow you will mostlikely be triping the unit due to short cycling. Ie the unit is pulling its own discherge air causing the compressor to trip due to high back pressure

SOURCE: Sub-Zero 532 not cooling

Simple think I guess - just pull down a little a plastic fan blade on motor shift it will produce a powerful air flow. Fan blade should sit pretty close to the shift end. ;)

SOURCE: Whirlpool 20.8 Top won't cool neither refrigerator nor freezer

that's about right, if the compressor is drawing more than 4 amperes, then it is no good.

A reminder also to check the condenser for dirt and debris that could have accumulated at the front, this is a major contributor to compressor failure. check also the fan near the compressor. it should be running at the same time the compressor runs.

that's nice to hear from whirlpool....

good luck tapperal,

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: rodeo won't start after driving until it cools down

it's probably a fuel injection problem. the seals wear or get some little bit of junk in seal surface and are unable to completely close. it's not a problem as long as the engine is running, the seals let in a little more fuel and the computer adjusts for it. after you shut it off the leaky seals let the fuel into the cylinders and then if you try to start it up it is for all intents and purposes a flooded engine. if you don't try to start it again for a good while the fuel that leaked into the cylinders evaporates or runs down into your oil pan. anyway, it's not there and so your engine is not flooded and it starts like it's supposed to. obviously i haven't looked at your vehicle and that's just a guess but it's based on vehicles i have seen. hope that helps

Sub-zero refrigerator on but not cooling


Your thermostat, or compressor (motor) is defect. Or the cooling fluid has leaked away. (used to be freon)
To be sure let a technician have a look.

Sub zero 601R not cooling properly


The display does not show air temp, and it is not "live". It uses both thermistors to calculate the internal product temperature of the stuff in your fridge. You would have to have it open for a very long time to affect the reading. Also, the reason the compressor will not run after leaving the door open, is because the computer will not allow the compressor to turn on until the evaporator reaches at least a 38 degree reading, no matter what the set temp is. This is designed to ensure that the evaporator is not "iced up" when the unit turns on, thus causing a frost up. They call this an "off cycle defrost" that is how they defrost the coils without using a heater. When you disconnect the thermistor, it doesn't know what the evap temp is, so it runs in a default mode.

Sub-Zero 601R door handle is loose


My Sub is a 650S. Not sure your handle assy. is the same or not. But each of the 2 attachment points have a small 3/32" set screw on the bottom of each short piece between the vertical handle and the door. These set screws grab onto posts that are screwed into the door. There can be 3 points where the handle can work loose.
1. The set screw(s) have backed out and not holding tightly onto the door studs. 2. The studs in the door are loose and need to be tightened with a screw driver. 3. After loosening the handle via the set screws, when you look back into the cavity vacated by the studs from the door, (pivot handle clockwise past edge of door) you will see a Philips-head screw that secures the spacer to the handle. If the spacer is loose, tighten it with screw driver. Then mount back into door stud and tighten set screw. Problem Solved. Have a beer!!!

Subzero 601R Extremely Difficult to Open


Hi,
This is a problem with freezers that have their drain outlet blocked.
Clean the doorseals anyway with a warm cloth and soapy water, then remove inner drawers. There should be an access panel at the rear to remove, and this will reveal the cooling coils and the drain at the bottom of these. You will need a short length of wire to clear the pipe. Make sure power is off while you do this.

601R sub zero vacuum condenser notice


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 !!!
