Question about Sub-Zero Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Sub-zero is not freezing

My sub-zero refrigerator is having some issues. It's a refer on top and freezer below model. The refer is working fine but the freezer is having problems freezing. The coils in the top of the freezer become covered with frost which eventually makes a fan in the freezer make noise. This is followed by the ice maker becoming jammed (no more ice production): bad for cocktails on the weekend. The problem is temporarily solved by turning off the freezer (placing the freezer items in a cooler), melting the frost, cleaning the water out of the freezer, reloading the freezer, turning the freezer on and voila' it begins working (making ice) for a week.

Freezer not working/but fan is running


The freezer side may be icing up. Soon enough the fridge side may have problems, too. Love those Sub-Zeros, but if the defrost timer fails, it will ice up. Defrost timer is up top. A generic one will do.

1988 sub zero refrigerator's freezer is warm on the top and not making ice


Hi,
Sounds like you have a fan problem around the evaporator in the freezer, it is possible it has failed and won't move air within the freezer section anymore. Cold air drops and heat rises.

Good Luck

I suspect a bad fan motor, door switch, or not defrosting.The suction when door closes is caused by the low temperature created when working properly.

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.
