Hello,

I will advice you clean the condenser on your unit, follow the steps below to clean the condenser,

Before you delve into any electrical appliance and especially something like a refrigerator, it is extremely important to switch off the refrigerator and unplug it from the power source.
After you have switched off the power of your refrigerator, you would find a grill like cover panel at the bottom front part. Unscrew or remove this panel by snapping it off, you can do either depending on its setting. Then find a plug point for your vacuum cleaner as you are soon going to need it.

You have already set the vacuum cleaner, so just turn it on. Use the attachment of the wand and nozzle, your condenser cleaning equipment for cleaning out all the dirt and grime collected beneath the refrigerator. Get rid of as much dust as you can from the condenser. The nozzle attachment will be more helpful in cleaning the coils.

Once you are done with the coils, check out the cover plate which would also be dirty. Clean out the grills from that cover plate. Hot bleach water will do wonders to clean the plate. Before you re-install the cover plate let it dry.

Well, congratulations! You have successfully accomplished condenser cleaning with regards to your refrigerator. You can now turn the refrigerator on.

Take care.

Condenser was vacuumed but cannot turn off notification


The light usually indicates a bigger problem. Turn off power at the breaker for 20 minutes to make sure the board clears. If the temperature doesn't return to normal in a day you will need service.

Although my sub zero 642 is holding the temperature, there is water leaking from underneath the refrigerator every day onto the floor. Sometimes it is heavier than others.


it's condensate from the evaporator coils. when the humidity collects on the coils, it should drain into a pan under the fridge that gets evaporated from the hot-side line. check to see if the condensate tube from the coils is still in the pan.

Condenser needs cleaning need to get grill off 642 model


Before one can get to the two springs, there are a three screws that need to be removed first. Open the refrigerator and freezer doors. Their are two screws on the reefrig side and one on the freezer side in the jamb, at the top. Once these are removed, the SS grill can be tilted forward and the two springs removed.

The best way to clean the condenser is with a paint brush on one side and a vacuum cleaner on the other side. Gently brush teh condenser to loosen the debris. It will be sucked in by the vacuum cleaner.

Cannot reopen Sub-Zero 642 freezer door for 50 seconds


Yes, this is normal.  My 642 does the same thing. It seals to be more efficient while trying to cool back down after it has lost heat while open.

Vacuum condensor


open both the freezer and refrigerator doors, there are 4 screws at the top of the door frame that extend into the grill covering above the doors where the condenser is housed.  Remove all 4 screws, pull the grill open and then use your home vacuum to clean the dust from the condenser coil (it'll be obvious that it needs it).  Close the grill back, replace the screws and the message should go away.
