Question about Sub-Zero 601R
That warning comes on when the compressor shows excessively high running time.
The condenser should be cleaned. However, to vacuum it is rarely effective.
The coils are too deep for a vac to clean them properly.
The only effective way is to blow the dirt out. Service techs usually use compressed air or nitrogen to perform the cleaning job properly.
It needs to be cleaned from both sides. First the outside, and then removing the panel that covers the compressor area. from the inside. It needs to be blown clean. It's a filthy ugly proceess but is necessary to do the job right.
If you have no access to an air or nitrogen tank then a good shop vac with a crevice tool makes a good substutute.
Once done (the power to the machine must be turned off before cleaning) then restart the machine and give it time to settle down.
If that fails to solve the problem, and the compressor is being overtaxed it would be smart to call in a qualified Sub Zero tech to determine what's at issue. Failing to do so could wind up costing you a compressor, a very pricey repair.

Here is the basic idea on how to keep the
refrigerator, air conditioner, or vacuum cleaner to work properly. Air is moved
by an electric fan or blower in order for that product to work properly. If air
movement is blocked the fridge won't get cold, the central air conditioner
won't cool enough, the vacume cleaner won't clean as well. Check on your
fridge's air movement by inspecting the bottom of the fridge for dust and cob
webs. Remove the front bottom clip-on plastic grill. Or also even access the
lower back of the fridge by removeing
the screws holding up the heavy cardboard cover to see inside. Blockage
of air flow will prevent a fridge from getting cold. Just like a vacuum
cleaner stops working when the bag is filled with dust and fibers. The air could be blocked by the accumulation of dust and
fibers. Look under your fridge if it is
cloged, it will look just like the stuff on a dirty central air filter.
Dust and fiber buildup blocking the fridge's air
movement from back to front (or visa-versa) of your fridge will slowly (years)
prevent how good it cools. The build-up of dust and cobwebs prevents your
fridge from cooling (more specifically prevents the heat to disapate
from the metal heat disipating fins
attached to the metal tubes to be blown off by the fans air). OK! Remedy
for a vacuum cleaner REPLACE THE CLOGED VACUUM BAG.
Remedy for your fridge manually REMOVE THE
CLOGING DUST AND FIBERS FROM UNDER YOUR FRIDGE. SORRY fridge
manufacturers do not provide a dust filter like the vacume cleaner and central
air systems manufacturers do. You have to figger out
the best way you can clean it. Possibly vacuum with a crevice tool, or use
a small brush than vacuum. The extreme would be unplug
the fridge ( so you won't get electrocuted) bring
a water hose into the kitchen and spray water at cobweb buildup at the bottom
fridge, than wet vac the floor then wait
20 minutes to dry before pluging the fridge back into the electric outlet.
When you stand in front of your fridge and you hear the fridge electric motor turn on, the fan will blow air.The fridge
