I assume from your post you have vacuumed the condensor at the top of the unit? Did you do this regularly over the life of the unit? You have shut the unit off for at least 5 minutes (allowing it to reset) and then turned it back on and the vac condensor light still flashes? I had this same thing happen - unfortunately for me I have had to replace the condensor twice in the 12 years I have owned the unit. Luckily first time was covered by warrantly (parts and labor). Second time was in the 11th year and the parts were covered, and the labor was covered 50% after I complained......It ended up being a leak in the sealed system (condensor). If it keeps happening you may want to call for service - could be that it just needs freon, but it could be the condensor)

Sub zero 690 model if doors are not flushed right , my fridge door is little out think that is the reason flashing clean the condenser light comes after 12 hrs or so .The fridge is worth 10,000 so how can...


It is perfectly normal for the refr door on a side by side Subzero to stick out a little further than the freezer door. That light could mean several things. If you have vacuumed the condenser then you should call a repairman to look at it.

My 650 sub zero vacum condensor error code is flashing and the refrigerators inside temp rose to 58. Should I try and clean the coils first or does this sound like a more serious problem


Good day,
Cleaning the coils on a Sub Zero should be a routine procedure.
At least once a year.
Unfortunately the depth, fin design and overall layout of the Sub Zero machines does not lend itself to vacuuming.
The coils, to be cleaned properly must be blown out, from both ends.
Service techs carry nitrogen tanks or air under pressure with a hose to do the job.
If you do not have access to one of these devices, a quality push/pull shop vac with a crevice tool and some patience will do the job.
It's ugly and messy but there is no other way to do it properly.

It should be done as soon as possible, and if it produces no results on frig temperature a service tech qualified on Sub Zero should be called since it could easily be a serious problem.

Vacuum condensor light flashing and the refrigerator won't get colder than 51 degrees.


The light is indication a problem with the condenser coils being covered with dust/dirt and cannot dissipate the heat energy absorbed by the system in the evaporator coils (freezer). Or the condenser fan is not running. Clean the condensor and/or check the fan.

Vacumm Condenser light flashing


Hello.

Your unit is sensing that the condenser fan is running at a lower rpm than it should. that is how you get the signal. You will need to replace the condensor motor if your coils are cleaned already. That is the only cure for your problem. I hope this helps you out.

My vaccume condensor light is flashing and my refrigerator is 55 degrees. I vaccumed the coils on the side of the fan What could be the problem ?


You may need to unplug the fridge for a few hours and let it reset itself. Also make sure coils are clean and there is plenty of air flow to the condensor..

8 year old Sub-Zero model 690. Condensor coil leaking


When copper and aluminum are connected it cannot be welded, it has to be crimped. this is a problem that is not exclusive to sub zero, an all aluminum evaporator ( if it is in the refrigerator it's an evaporator) should resolve the problem nicely

Sub zero 690


Call the factory at 800-222-7820.They will give you a list of the authorized servicers in your area. It sounds like the evaporator and the parts will be covered by the year 6 through 12 parts only warranty. If you are in Westchester County $625 sounds right. The vacuum condensor flashes when the compressor has too long of a run time and will reaapear a day or so after it has been reset. I assume the tech made sure the condensor fan was running and the condensr is actually clean.
