Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

We have a sub-zero refrig/freezer that came with our condo. Condo built in 1985. We purchased 12 years ago and were the 1st owners. This was originally the model and not lived in but very rarely by one of the developers (with the model furnishings). We lived there 10 years and it was rented the last 2 years. It has been vacant since 5/1/10. The refrigerator/freezer were empty but we kept it running. Since we've owed the condo, we have replaced the ice maker line and compressor ($700 and $600). Today we had the refrig repair guy check it out because it was rather warm inside and were told the compressor needs to be replaced again ($1200). He said parts went way up. Is this normal? Also, what can we expect as far as other costly repairs in the near future with a unit of this age? We just signed another tenant yesterday for a year. Would you replace the refrig altogether? Not sure what would fit in there without retrofitting the cabinets around it.

Hi,
After 12 years you can expect that kind of repairs...I would not spend the 1200 for the compressor and would instaed replace the unit...it will just irritate you more from here on...

it sounds as if the ice door is not closing properly. Check the little rubber door seal to see if it is sealing properly. If not try a hair dryer to soften it. Otherwise you have to buy a door kit.

That depends on if your model has a five or ten year warranty on the compressor. Your problem may not be warranty related. Check and see if the condenser is clean, check for a frozen cooling coil.
