My Sub Zero 642 is freezing my fruits and vegetables. I have not changed the temperature settings. What's up? I did unplug the unit to reset it but it keeps having the same problem.

Usually a bad thermostat, but it can be a freon system problem, or a problem with your evaporator fan motor. These are problems that a good Sub Zero technician needs to repair, especially if you have a system problem, since a system problem is under a 6 to 12 year warrantee. Make sure that the company you call is a Sub-Zero warrantee company. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I have an Amana BRF20V1S refrig w/bottom freezer. I cannot put fruit or veggies in the bins as they will ALWAYS freeze. I have the fridge compartment at setting 1 right now, and it is still extremely...

Good day,
Tricky problem.
The fresh food compartment gets it's cooling from the freezer.
When running zero degree air is blown up the back wall and out to the fresh food compartment thru a modulating thermostat.
This modulating tstat is continuously opening and closing .

I have seen many of these where the spring that tries to keep the flap on this device closed, has popped off.
If you can find the spring, it usually can be reinstalled, if not, you have to replace the whole control.

If that control is working O.K. another problem is at play.
During cooler weather, and light usage, the machine tends to stay off longer.
This causes the air in the machine to stratify. Warmer air rising, colder air falling. Thus, the warmer air reaches the modulator at the top of the machine, and throttles it wide open.
On the next running cycle, it allows a large volume of near zero degree air to enter the fresh food compartment.

Here are two possible solutions. The first cannot be verified.
A user claims that the return air vents behind the crispers got blocked by various items from food handling, and prevented the cold air at the bottom from returning to the freezer.
Your using a foam at the bottom would only make the matter worse.

The second option, would be to replace the modulating thermostat, and test for results. It's a pricey part.

Hopes this gets you some results..

Breaker that powers my sub-zero side by side keeps popping off

The refrige has a name plate what is the rated amps for the refrige and what size breaker u have for it. How far is the refrig from the breaker panel. If you give me more info i can help with this. I can only suggest now or guess 1.) Breaker is bad 2.) Compressor motor is starting to fail. With an A.C Ammeter right at the breaker panel go to the breaker that supplies power to your refrig and measure how much amps it is using and compare it to the name plate specifications

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.

not really sure as far a swhatconstitutes ruining along time, you are doing the right thing by keeping it clean for sure, refrigs now run for as long as they need if it never stopped running youd see hte effects of that in 2 ways, either all your food would be FROZEN solid( cause it never shuts off), or your food would be spoiling quicker hat n usual, in which case your refrig is trying to run all the time to maintain temps! the noise that you hear running might just be the evap fan motor running( circulater fan, sure its gonna run to circulate, but the compressor wont be running all the time.. check and go by your dairy products, ice cream too hard or too soft, and in refrig check the milk and butter.youll never know how cold you leftover is but youll know right away if the milk it too warm
