Question about Refrigerators
Our 15 year old Sub-Zero 550L has developed what sounds like a noisy fan. We have a loud vibration that comes from the upper portion of the unit. The noise stops as soon as the refrig door is opened and starts up when the door is closed. Noise greatly diminished after we vacuumed upper cooling fins, but returned the next day. Do we need a new fan, or just better cleaning? Does the whole unit need to come out to access the fan?
Thanks for any advice.
You could try taking the fan assembly out and adjusting it or oiling it, sometimes it gets that back pressure when the door is closed because it has to work harder
