Sub zero gurgiling

My fridge notified me the condenser needed to be cleaned, since I did that it has developed a gurgiling noise. It is keeping cool, I'm worried this could be the prelude to a problem.

    Thanks for responding! Yes, the noise only occurs after you close the door, you must be psychic.

  • senfred Feb 24, 2008

    Is this something I need to worry about, it is a new sound, the unit is almost nine years old. It doesen't hapen every time I open the door, in fact it seems to be making the noise less and less.

The problem is the drain line sucking air back in the unit to equlize the pressure that is the noise you hear A dirty condenser has nothing to do with the noise just an FYI

    That noise obviously varies because the condenser operation is varied by the thermostat depending on the temperature inside the fridge. The condenser has nothing to do with this.

How do i shut off and reset sub=zero 690 fridge?


Its not necessary when "Vacuum Condenser" light is blinking means That condenser is dirty. That light will come on if compressor running too long. Most common problem is that Evaporator coil in fresh food section is leaking freon. It still might keep temps ok, but compressor need to run much more to keep temperature you set. check back wall in fresh food section on left side at the middle, behind drawers. if you see moisture in one spot or a little bit of ice build up, then You will need to call people who can replace evaporator. It is pretty expensive fix. I made video how it looks to repair this problem. Thanks.

It is likely the condenser fan is not functioning. You may need to open the compressor access panel to check. If you can hear the compressor running, and the condenser feels warm, the fan should be running. If it isn't, it probably needs to be replaced. Another symptom is the area around the doors feels warm.

MOST LIKELY FRIDGE SECTION IS LOW ON FREON! "VACUUM CONDENSER" WILL COME ON IF COMPRESSOR RUNS MORE THAN IT SHOULD BE. COMMON THING IS LEAKING EVAPORATOR COILS IN FRESH FOOD SECTION. CHECK MY VIDEO, I HOPE IT HELPS.

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp


check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly

The fridge shows vaccum condenser?


It is just a message advising you to clean the condenser behind the top access panel. Basically an "idiot light" kind of thing although it should be cleaned about once a year

Sub-Zero 532 not cooling


Simple think I guess - just pull down a little a plastic fan blade on motor shift it will produce a powerful air flow. Fan blade should sit pretty close to the shift end. ;)

Sub zero 650 fidge holding at 53 degrees


That depends on if your model has a five or ten year warranty on the compressor. Your problem may not be warranty related. Check and see if the condenser is clean, check for a frozen cooling coil.
