Subzero 690 flashing EC and service

The fan went out, so I installed a new one. It flashes EC and service. I've reset it by pushing the bell button and that didn't work. I can turn unit off and back on and it will go away for about 4 or 5 days, but always go's back to EC and service. It seems to be always running. Can you help?

Our Subzero 632 freezer side is fine. The right refrig side is flashing EC then the temp whch is always 41-46 no matter what we set it at. Tried cleaning the coils & shutting off the circuit breaker to see if it would reset itself. whats the problem or is there a way to reset it?

    This is the second round of Fashing Service and EC we have had for our Sub Zero - freezer section.  The first time (10/07on a unit installed in Jan of '05) I vacuumed the coils, reset the unit, reorganized the freezer several times and it eventually went away.  It's back now and I've done the same steps but am having no success.  The outside of the door of the freezer - by the hinges - is hot.   It seems to be working too hard to try to cool.  Also, the "sucking" noise from the vacuum compression doesn't happen every time.  Appears the freezer door is sticking out 1/8 of an inch farther than the fridge door.

If the light keeps coming back on and temps are rising in the refer section, then you most likely have an evaporator leak. Check to see if you see either a moist spot or ice on the back wall on the left side of the back wall of the refer. If you do, it's definetly a leak. Call a authorized Servicer.

Rhino, this is yet another simple fix. You need to call subzero and let them know that your ref section is not cooling properly. 9 out of 10 times it will be a problem with the evaporator coil needing replacement. Sub is aware of this issue and usually picks up the tab for this repair.

Is it possible to clean the condenser with low velocity air compresser . My sub zero 690 side by side fridge flashing VACUME CONDENSER SERVICE.


Hi,
Yes but this will create a dusting nightmare for the rest of the house. By just cleaning the condenser is not enough for the computer has no knowledge of said act. You must rest the computer after cleaning, your model has a picture of a bell on the panel of the control. Push and hold that bell for 10 seconds, you should hear a beep and the service light will disappear. If this returns, this means either the condenser is dirty or the computer has detected that it takes too long to reach your desired temp. But reset first, less work and see what happens.

Good Luck

Call the factory at 800-222-7820.They will give you a list of the authorized servicers in your area. It sounds like the evaporator and the parts will be covered by the year 6 through 12 parts only warranty. If you are in Westchester County $625 sounds right. The vacuum condensor flashes when the compressor has too long of a run time and will reaapear a day or so after it has been reset. I assume the tech made sure the condensor fan was running and the condensr is actually clean.

Subzero 690 flashing EC and service


If you replace the fan and clean the coils, and the refrigerator STILL does not cool, then contact SubZero or a service provider for an evaporator coil replacement.  Units manufacturer before mid-2003 had copper+aluminum coils that would corrode and allow all of the coolant to escape.  The (should be warranty) replacement is all aluminum.
Note the freezer does not have this issue due to the lack of liquid water.
