Sub-zero 550 reefridgerator top freezer bottom - refridgerator door not staying closed

This fridge came with the house, so I don't know how old it is. The door stopped staying shut one day without any warning. The freezer opens via a drawer and that stays shut. What can cause the door to not stay shut?

Just a guess, but I would check the gasket on the door. They can go bad or get distorted and bunch up and cause the door to bind and not close properly. Also check that the fridge is leveled properly. Will the door close if pushed? Will it stay closed?

I need instructions how to replace the cold control on Sub-Zero 550 Freezer.

Here is a pic of the insides. The cold control is at top right of this pic and the capillary tube goes from it across to middle and then down the centre. All this is can be reached from the back of the refridgerator.

I have a subzero 690...the freezer side is only cooling down to 50 degrees but refridgerator is working fine....control panel says to vacuum condensor. I vacuumed and also used compressed air. This made...

i would call a tech in for this,sub zeros are not like regular machines,the freezer and fridge have their own components,it's like two machines in one,whenever i've seen the vac condenser it's ussually a freon leak in the fridge evap coil so i would have to think you could have a freon leak in the freezer section,usually the bottom copper loop rots out,your talking about a machine that costs almost 10,000 dollars or more,if it is a leak i think you're covered for the first 12 years on the sealed system,you can do a few checks,look at the door gasket,does it have any rips or does it look damaged in any way,also i've seen the light switch stick and the lights stay on when the door is closed and heats up the freezer,open the freezer door and push the door switches in and out and see if the lights go out,but other than that i would call a tech in to repair your sub zero,i know if you do have a leak in the system it's could be close to a grand or more to repair and you need all the tools to do the repair.

Sub-zero 550. freezer icing

You probably have some food on the way. Unload the freezer and see if the door would close better. Looks like you have a warm air leak.

Drain in fridge is clogged - ice formation under crisper drawers

We have cleared / de-frosted the drain twice and it keeps freezing up, causing the accumulated ice problem to recur. Should the freezer settings be changed?

Refridgerator door

a lot of the sub-zero doors are good and heavy duty, but the plastic shim under the hinge wears and can drag when you go to close door, usually a simply repair to find a washer for the door hinge.

Refrigerator not cooling properly

You may have a low freon condition in the fridge section. Look to see if you have an ice block building up on the rear wall towards the lower left side. If so, you are low on freon and the ost likely culprit is a leaking evaporater. The best way to tell if you are low on freon for sure is to take out all the shelves, remove the light cover, then the 2 screws holding the fan cover, and then remove the back wall. You wont be able to pull it all the way out cause the cold control is attached to it for the freezer and fridge so be careful. Turn the fridge control all the way up to 10 and wait till the compressor is running. you can tell if the compressor is running by pushing in the little switch on the top of the door frame and seeing if the fan runs(one switch is for lights, the other for fan) if it runs the compressor is on. anyway watch the coils and see if they develop frost all the way from top to bottom. If they dont you are low on freon and are ooking at about a $600 repair. if it does frost all the way you may have a bad cold control or a stalling fan motor up by the condensor on top. The best way to tell this is the next time the fridge feels warm, sheck the frame around the door seal and see if it is hot to the touch. If it is you almost surley have a bad condensor fan motor. Hope you can wade through all tis to find the answers. Good Luck!
