Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Subzero CHANGING THE PANELS

Hi,

I have a Sub-Zero 650. A friend of mine owns a laser cutting business. I want to remove the existing panels and use them as templates for stainless steel panels. The existing panels are white. Could you explain how I remove the existing panels? What is the sequence of disassembly and reassembly of the door frame?

I removed the door from the 650 to move it. I am unsure as to how to install the door back onto the fridge. There is a somewhat tranangular shaped piece approximately 3" x 3" that has a white plastic bushing through the center of it. I am unsure as to how this incorporates into the hinge. Please explain how to reinstall the door, step by step.

Thank you, I look forward to your solution!

John White

This is a two person job! The triangular piece with bushing is the door stop. It must be held up into place first. Put the round hole onto the larger stud while making sure the smaller stud fits into the slot on the door stop. Lift the door onto the lower hinge set in place. With one person keeping the door steady hold the door stop in place (the inner door trim on the hinge side must be off) place the top hinge piece back in place and screw in th two small shipping screws first then the four door hinge screws next.This can be very difficult if never done before and may be worth having a Trained tech to do it for you. If you want the white door panel out simply remove the door handle trim and then you can access the screws for the handle. Take the handle off and slide the panel out!

SOURCE: Sub Zero 642 side by side stainless steel leaks water from right

remove the crisper drawers and you will see a drain trough and a drain line . One or both is most likely blocked. If you pull the drain line off the trough usually you can clear it with a turkey baster filled with hot water

SOURCE: i need to remove the wood door panels on my sub

I have subzero 642 but it should be the same. Remove 2 screws on the top edge of the door. The screws attach a metal track to the top of the door and the track needs to be loosened to allow the front wood panel to slide out. Next on the side edge of the door are 3 metal strips. The middle one is held in place simply by magnets and slots at the top and bottom edges of the door. You can remove the middle strip by lifting it out in the middle with a small screwdriver and pulling it off. This will expose 3 or 4 screws that hold a metal track to the side edge of the door. Remove these screws and the metallic track on the side edge of the door. You can then slide the wood door panel out enough to expose the 2 screws that the door handle attaches to. Good luck!

Subzero regrigerator door not closing properly


Hi there,
Is it possible to elaborate a bit? Is it sticking? Jamming? Slamming? Not staying closed or sealed? Most of the time problems arise from damage to the white rubber seal (subzero's are specially fitted to ensure a stellar seal). Check along the entire rectangle surface for any cuts or problem areas.

Good luck!

How do you get an icemaker in a subzero 650 refrigerator to stop making ice when the bin is full?


There should be a metal bar that flips when it hits the ice at a certain level. It should stop automatically. There is a problem with the sensor.

My 650/f sub-zero is not cooling in the refer but the freezer is working fine?


Subzero uses two compressors so the freezer is a separate system. The first thing to do is clean the condenser. You can find instructions on how in the owners manual or at subzero.com. They even have videos. If that doesn't take care of it you could have a bad condenser fan motor a sealed system issue or a temperature sensor issue. Also I have seen if you put something tall enough to push up on the light cover on the top shelf that can stop the evaporator fan at the top of the refrigerator section.

Sub-zero not keeping cold. It will cycle on and cool properly, then after a while the temp goes up to near 50 and it takes too long to cycle on to cool down again.


Call a subzero repairman. My subzero had a leak in the refrigerant coolant tubing. Trust me, only a trained and equipped repairman has a prayer of fixing this.

Installing cams to sub zero 550


http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=Zip%20Code is the locator area parts distributors. Once you get the parts in, remove everything from the door, food, shelves.... Then with the door closed remove the upper hinge. If you have a left hinge unit you can bend the shroud out of the way and bend it back when you are done. The door can be quite heavy if you have wood panels on it so you may need help. Open the door 90 degrees and lift up and over the bottom hinge. Remove the cam from the door using a phillips head screw. Then replace the hinge cam that is on the hinge that is still attached to the body. Now you will need help, lift the door up and have some one set it into the lower hinge pin. Close the door and have some one hold it closed while you climb up and reinstall the hinge. You may have to adjust the door by sliding it forward and back left and right until you get your sight line just right.
