Sub Zero insulation freezing

My sub zero freezers insulation is getting wet and then freezing probalby due to age and natural breakdown of the material. Is there some way to dry it out and then drill holes in the back and refill it with new foam insulation as a stop gap measure?

These units are pretty much manufactured, then the insulation is inserted as a liquid that forms into a solid insulation. Consider the age of the unit for a replacement IMHO.

Sub Zero 700 suddenly stops after 12 years. Compresser is burning hot.


The compressor will normally be 100 to 110 degrees. I would suspect the thermostat or mouse damage in the freezer area. Also, if you keep it overstocked, to the point of poor air circulation, you could just have ice blockage. Put the frozen food in a styrofoam cooler or a good heavy corrugated box and give the unit a good full defrosting.

Sub zero freezer - 501 f


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.

Sub zero freezer door no longer vacuum seals when the door closes. There is nothing obstructing the door.


Make certain that the freezer fan motor is operable. Otherwise, contact an appliance service company.

10+ years old sub zero 550. ice cubes are green


I would not recomend using those ice cubes. Sounds like theres lots of mold or worse growing in your freezer. I would get rid of it. ;(
