Check what the "AMPERAGE" (Amps) is stamped on the info tag on your present heater --- If the number is the same or lower you shold be able to use the same wiring -- If the amperage is lower all you'll to do is lower the amp size of the fuse / braker

Our Sub-Zero Mdl 680F is 11 years old, and virtually for its entire existence in our house, the water and ice dispenser has been un-useable because they taste bad. The taste was "oily" almost as...


Change the supply line to the plastic tube line or copper. Do not use a braided plastic or metal braided line these will make the water taste bad. Changed mine to the plastic line and cured mine, no filters needed.

Replace the water filter cartridge in your refrigerator if the ice tastes bad or the control center display recommends it.

I am continually getting a frozen sheet of ice beneath the deli drawer

Hi this is your water tank leaking due to it freezing from too low of temperatures, this particular model, had problems with damper assembly leaking, you will need to change out the water tank, but before you do that you need to fix the temperature problem, which requires adjusting or replacing the damper assembly in the back of the refrigerator at the bottom, You can install a bigger gasket or the new damper comes with one. If you need futher assistance let me know.

Looking for the expert dblred

hi. if the test i gave you worked, and you called for water and it came out of the valve, then you probably have a froze-up reserve tank. this is located in the bottom, rear inside the refrigerator section. you will need to remove the botom shelves and crisper drawers. you should see a reserve tank there. it will not be visibley froze. take a hair dryer and de-thaw the tank and the two water lines coming out of the tank. it is plastic, so dont get it to hot and melt it. it usually takes me a while running the hair dryer, because you cannot get it to hot, but it does need to de-thaw ice that is inside of the tank. just keep using the hair dryer until water comes out the door. note: if water did come out of the valve, the switch is working, and so is the valve. let me know if this solves this for you.

Fridge keeps freezing

Chances are, they replaced the wrong parts, or didn't replace all the parts, assuming they replaced an electric motor kit. I would need to know the P/N of the electric motor kit to confirm what was replaced.

Based on the fact that it froze the drinking water tank, and if they replaced the electric motor kit, the problem is more likely the temperature sensor or the control board.

Let me know what the P/N is of what they replaced and we can be more precise.

U-line ice maker BI-95


try to steady your thermostat setting to the lowest or not turned at all. more stock in your ref. can help your ice maker not to frozen. if you have less stock in your ref. put some gallons of water. or put your ref near the fire bin but not too close. or with a circulation of hot air

Water dispencer

Hi. This is normal and there is nothing wrong with your refrigerator. Whenever you replace the water filter on any refrigerator, you must run a couple gallons of water thru the water dispenser until all the air from the new water filter is out. Use a large container to do this. The water will not stop when you pull a cup away because the water valves used on refrigerators are so weak it will not close until it has pressure on both sides of it. If you don't get the air out, the air from your new water filter can go to the ice maker and stop ice production. So flush the air out of your new water filter. The water you are drinking from your drink dispenser may not be healthy. It may contain a small plastic floating substance. This is part of the plastic that the water tank is made of. The chemicals in the water do this. You will have this problem even with a new water filter because the water tank is after the water filter. You have to replace the Water Tank. The water tank is located in the refrigerator section on the bottom back wall. I sell low cost new designed Water Tanks on Ebay as username: themackshack. Good Luck, Mack
