I need instructions how to replace the cold control on Sub-Zero 550 Freezer.


Here is a pic of the insides. The cold control is at top right of this pic and the capillary tube goes from it across to middle and then down the centre. All this is can be reached from the back of the refridgerator.

I have a sub zero (model 550) bottom freezer. Moisture appears to gather at the right side of the freezer then ices up to the point that the drawer can not be opened. I have replaced the drawer seal and...


I had this problem several times and have learned alot. Hopefully some can benefit from my learning and mistakes.

On the inside of the freezer on the right is a drain tube. The defroster cover flows into this little drain. This drain goes into the pan at the bottom of the freezer, and the water evaporates. My subzero 550 had an old drain heater already in there, but obviously not working properly.

First, defrost the freezer completely. I had also poured hot water down this little tube, but this takes too long, and doesn't clear the drain completely. Also, see if you can tolerate turning the freezer temp setting down. I had mine at 1, and it was sufficiently cold. With this simple method, note the weeks /months until it happens again. If you can live with this, you are done.

If not, order a drain heater (contact Clarke Customer at 800-305-0722 and order item number 4202160, Freezer Drain Heater - under $40). I installed this and got some success, and am still counting the weeks after 8 have already passed.

Good luck

Sub-zero 550. freezer icing


You probably have some food on the way. Unload the freezer and see if the door would close better. Looks like you have a warm air leak.

Sub-Zero 550 - freezer unit is chilling, but not freezing


Ice maker was intermittent at best - ice was often just a shell. After two failures to correct we had the ice maker (a Whirlpool - on a Sub Zero - Go figure) replaced. Then the paddle that detects the ice level broke. Next step a new GE.
