Some subzero's run the condensor motor all the time. This is the motor next to the compressor. If you check the temp. and it is running normal then check the condensor coil and if dirty clean it. If it is clean and its cooling fine (you've checked the temp). You may have a bad t-stat also, but normally if your not freezing food that won't be the issue. Just clean the condenser and see if it runs less.

Hi,

If either compressor is running the fan is always on to cool both compressors. As they cycle it is possible the both compressor cycle at the same time and the fan turns off. But it is rare to see this happen. So yes the fans for the compressor does run at the time. I hope this helps, good luck

Sub zero 736 condenser fan not running


You will need to remove the cover around the condenser fan motor then remove the screws holding it down to the base. Remove the wiring from the junction box and away you go. Do not run the unit without a working condenser fan motor, you run the chance of causing yourself many other problems. With a new fan motor the unit should run fine unless there is waxing in the cap tube from overheating. Good luck

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

Cleaned condenser on sub sero 680f and now fridge is running high


Check to see if the condensor fan (underneath the refrigerator) and the evaporator fan (behind a panel in the freezer) are both running. If one of these is not running, the refrigerator will not have its full efficiency.

Sub-Zero 532 (About 18 years old)





First do the simple things like cleaning the condensor coils and turning the defrost timer a few times, also check the evaporator motor or just listen to the fan by opening the freezer door. Also check the light switch, make sure it turns the light off every time you close the door.

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. ;)
