Check power to fan with voltmeter to determine if it's the power supply or the the fan motor itself. You can get manual and parts at repairclinic.com

It starts flashing VACUME CONDENSER after 24 hrs on my sub zero 690 side by side fridge .I cleaned the condenser but some one suggested I can wash with hot water spray bottle (I did not tried).If there is...


"Vacuum Condenser" light on this refrigerator will appear if you have any kind of issues - some of their models would have "Service" light instead of Vacuum Condenser. As My expirience shows Most likely Your Fresh food section is low on refrigerant - Evaporator might leak freon - so what we would have in this case - compressor runs for longer time then suppose to - as a result "Vacuum Condenser" or (some models) "Service" appears. Another sigh of low freon pressure people would notice ice build up on the back wall of the refrigerator section on the left side on the middle. I post video on my YouTube chanel, so u can check how to fix it properly.

Condenser is dirty our the condenser fan not working. Remove back and check fan. If not working check voltage coming to fan. If 120 volts, replace fan. If no power, bad board, located far left corner next to compressor.

Door gets warm


Hi,

Warm is normal hot is not. Too hot is an indication that the condenser coils are overheating due to being dirty or a bad fan motor. See the link below for details I put together on this. Let me know if it helps.

The panel separating my side by side refrigerator from the freezer is hot - nearly to the point of burning. Kenmore model 10653606202


  1. check if the evaporator fan motor is running (inside the freezer)
  2. Same for the condenser fan motor on the bottom in the back of the fridge
  3. Clean condenser coils underneath or in the back of the fridge
  4. if there is a frost on the back wall in freezer - you've got the defrost problem, check defrost heater, defrost bimetal thermostat, and defrost timer

MY FREEZE DOES NOT FREEZ BUT IS COOLD DOES IT NEEDS GAS


When the compressor is running, two fans should be running. One inside the freezer compartment that moves air over the evaporator coils. The other is under/behind the fridge that cools the condenser coils.

If the fan on the condenser coil (the one under/behind the fridge) stops working, the system cannot dissipate the heat from those coils, and thus cannot sufficiently cool the inside of either the freezer nor fresh food compartment.

On mine, when the condenser fan failed, I noticed right away. The front face of the wall separating the compartments became very hot. Extremely hot.

Apparently the refrigeration system is designed so that waste heat keeps condensation from forming where the magnetic gaskets on the door need to seal. When the condenser fan failed, there was too much waste heat (because no heat was being dissipated from the condenser coils by the fan), thus making that gasket-sealing area very hot.

If it is your condenser coil fan, you can relieve the problem temporarily by removing the bottom back panel from the fridge and aiming a box fan (a regular room or window fan) at the condenser coils. This will circulate air over the coils, thus removing heat from the coils.

Center partition wall of refrigerator is hot !


Sounds like your condenser fan isn't working...Take the back cover off to see if there's anything stuck in the fan blades. Usually when the fan stops, the compressor & tubing that runs between the doors get really hot. You may also want to clean your condenser coils.
