Most likely refrigerator section is low on freon. Somewhere leak in sealed system in 90% of cases its evaporator coils(they always sweating, always wet). Sealed system has warranty 6 years parts and labor and 11 years on parts only. Try to call subzero direct first, by serial # they can tell You what is under warranty, its very expensive repair.

Hi, I have subzero side by side refrigetor. Building up on back panel on refrigetor side . I defrost it clean and in week again ice building up ? Ho to resolve ? Thanks


check aall your seals on your doors and make sure they are sealing tight. Your compressor is working extra hard and freezing up. Also check the thermostat and make sure its not turned down to low, that will also cause compressor to run hard

Ignore the fan operation... That is perfect.

You are likely experiencing a DEFROST failure
(most commonly a defrost timer failure)...
part number 3081180 item 69 on your exploded
top view (top right side as viewed from the front).

There are typically only three (3) elements to a DEFROST
circuit:
- Defrost Timer (as noted above)

- Heater element to WARM the EVAPORATOR

- DEFROST thermostat... inhibit excess heat
(closed circuit at freezing - Opens at room temperature)

Check your defrost pan...
there should be water there DAILY...

IF not: you are assured that your DEFROST fails.

Per YOUR DESCRIPTION...
You need to look for a SUDDEN REASON (huge air leak)
why FROST would form so quickly...
USUALLY a big pizza box... BUT ANYTHING blocking a
TIGHT DOOR SEAL will cause massive frosting.

It is taking moisture from the WARM ROOM AIR and blocking your evaporator...

Yes ... all INTERIOR panels must be in place for the refrigerator to function properly.

Ice keeps forming inside on the back panel of mysubzero model 550


If the ice is on the back panel especially a block of ice in the middle left part of your panel, then you have a sealed system problem. Check to make sure that your condensor coils above the refer are clean, and if it continues to have an ice block then you have to have a technician come out an do a major repair. This is not something you can do yourself, most subzeros have a 6 to 12 year sealed system warrantee that covers either all of the repair or just parts. This is an expensive repair if it is not warranteed, but when the refers cost 8000 to 10000 new it is usually well worth it. Most often it is the result of a slowly leaking evaporator, though most inexperienced technicians replace the compressor first, so make sure you use an experienced Sub-Zero technician. Good Luck, Appliance Specialits

ICE IS FORMONG ON THE BACK WALL OF A SIDE BY SIDE SUB ZERO REFIGERATOR.


This is typically a problem with the sealed system (refrigerant leak). Usually a circular patch of ice or water driplets half way down on the back wall. The solution involves replacing the evaporator coil. Subzero will give partial warranty up to 12 years.Full warranty for 5.A subzero authorized company is recomended.

SubZero 690: Frost builds up on ice chute flapper door


you have a bad seal, Take a dollar bill and slide it in between the door seal and the frig. slide it up and down to see if if has drag on it. If you find places it dont touch loosen the screws and adjust the hinges till it fits tight. In some cases you might have to tweak the doors if they need it.

suspect fan is not working - can you hear fan?
if not, chances are fan is jammed with ice build up. take back panel off inside freezer and if there is ice build up, melt off with a hairdryer. also check for continuity thro fan and make sure it rotates freely
