Question about Sub-Zero 690 Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Light on refirgerator side doesn't come on unless I tap switch.

Sometime even manually pushing in and releasing the light mechanism doesn't work. Other times light comes on after a few seconds when fridge is opened. Sub zero 690 is 10 years old. Is there an easy solution?

The replacement light switch part number is Sub Zero Part # 3060140- this is a common problem. I just changed mine - very easy to do.

I had to take my switch apart and clean and lube it and it worked fine. Or just replace the switch. It may have gotten some sticky ketchup in it like mine did.

    My switch also sticks, for the short term, I removed it from the unit and sprayed WD-40, then compressed air to remove the excess. The switch works fine now. Now I'm going to order a new switch from a local store, or online.

How to turn off cooling off light off. My child was leaning against the fridge for a while when stood up straight I saw the cooling off light was on.


Check your user manual, but for my whirlpool it says: If the buttons are inside the fridge, push the FAST COOL and MOISTURE CONTROL buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. Once cooling comes back on, your previous settings will reappear on the display. If the buttons are on the outside of the fridge (as mine are), push the FREEZER TEMP and FRIDGE TEMP buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. Same result as above. Hope that helps.

Cant remove ice bin kitchenaid


This is an ice freeze up in the mechanical release mechanism. Leave the door open for a few minutes. But if you are impatient like me, warm the area with a hair drier for about 20 - 30 seconds, and you should be good-to-go.

I have a Frigidaire FRC150FF fridge, the fridge light comes on but the fridge is warm. The frezzer compartment is working fine


How old is the fridge? Can you hear it running?
It could me many things. Could be anything from a dead compressor to a coolant leak.

Did someone change thermostat setting, maybe during a cleaning? There's a knob in the refrigerator section somewhere; see if it's turned to "Off" or to a less-than-cold setting.

If you hear the motor running, but it doesn't get cold, it probably doesn't have any refrigerant to compress. That could be recharged, but modern refrigerators are pretty tight, so that would also indicate a leak. With a leak, it will need recharging again sometime later.

What you are hearing is most likely your compressor cycling on the overload due to drawing excessive amperage, You will have to have it checked out by a tech

Hi, you may be looking at the cruise control release switch. The stop light switch is behind the pedal as shown below. You're right--this is not an easy fix. After replacing, you need to make up a special tool to adjust it.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the three fasteners from the left side insulator panel.
  3. Slide the steering shaft protective cover towards the cowl.
  4. Remove the vacuum hose at the cruise control cut OFF switch, if so equipped.
  5. Remove the stoplamp switch-to-steering column bracket retaining pin.
  6. Unplug the electrical connector.
  7. Push the switch arm to the left and towards the cowl to disconnect switch-to-pedal arm. Release the snap clip and remove the switch.

To install:
  1. Install the switch and push up until it is seated into the top snap clip.
  2. Attach the electrical connectors.
  3. Connect the switch to the pedal.
  4. Install the switch-to-steering column retaining pin.
  5. Connect the vacuum hose if equipped with cruise control.
  6. Install the steering shaft protective sleeve.
  7. Adjust the stoplamp switch.
  8. Install the left sound insulator, connect the negative battery cable and check switch operation.

Fig. Fig. 4: Adjusting the brake light switch-1992 vehicle shown

  1. Depress the brake pedal (push down), as far as possible and hold.
  2. Using a stiff wire with a hooked end, gently pull the switch set lever forward (toward the front of the vehicle), and listen for an audible click that indicates release of the automatic adjuster.

If no click is heard, release the brake pedal and repeat the above procedure.
  1. After release of the automatic adjuster, slowly pull the brake pedal all the way rearward. Listen for the switch to ratchet into the set position (setting the brake light switch). At least three clicks of the ratchet should be heard.
  2. Inspect the operation of the brake lights, as follows:
    1. The brake lights should light at maximum brake pedal travel of 1 1 / 4 in. (32mm) and throughout the remainder of the pedal travel.
    2. If the brake lights do not light, repeat the switch adjuster procedure one more time.

Whats the problem when the truck wont start and i tap the clutch slave cylinder and it does start? but then that wont work anymore. what do i do? smugman697@yahoo.com


I'd take a look up near where clutch pedal pivots for a switch similar to brake light switch, that has to be depressed or released by pedal when pushed. Probably a safety feature to insure vehicle won't start unless clutch in, just in case it's in gear. May be adjustable, but if not, or adjustment doesn't help, replace it.
