Good day,
If the freezer is that cold and the compressor runs all the time, you've eliminated everything but the thermostat. Your on the right track.

COMPRESSOR RUNS A LOT


Your model has a mechanical thermostat inside the control panel. I believe you have something else going on like a bad fan, start relay, capacitor. Something is causing the compressor to struggle to keep up and in turn causing the compressor to short cycle. If the thermostat has no control over run time then something like I explained is causing the problem. Here is a parts manual=> ED5VHEXVB04 Contact me if you would like my help, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a SubZero 690. Freezer is not working at all, Refrigerator is fine! Two different compressors or refrigertion units?


Hi, and no, you have only one compressor for this unit.It sounds as though your defrost timer is not working on the evaporator, stuck in the defrost cycle, and this is why its not freezing. It could be several different reasons the freezer stopped working. Check the fan in the freezer to see if its running.The defrost timer should be located behind the unit at the lower section. If this unit has a panel that is removable, you can take it off to find the timer and take a flat head screw driver to see if you can give it a 1/4 turn, as it may be stuck in defrost.While you are there, you will see the compressor, condenser fan motor, and condenser coil also. Clean this coil while your there and make sure the fan is up and running. If its not running, but the compressor is, the motor has failed. Take these steps and let me know the outcome.

My refrigerator won't get cold. I had cleaned the condensor 2x and it seemed to fix it, but it keeps warming back up after about 3 days. The light does go off when the swich is pushed. Any ideas?


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

The freezer stopped working but the frige seem fine. no ice build up on the defrost timer.


No model # given to reference the symtoms. I would surly worry if you had ice buildup on the defrost timer. Some are in the fresh food side and some are outside the compartments. Extreamly rare to have one in the freezer.
Also if this is a standard SxS or top mount system...everything that happens in the fresh food section, happens because of the freezer. Air moves from the ff side to the freezer. The air is cooled down and recirulates back through the freezer and to the ff side. Issue could be ...evaporator fan bad or low RPM, freezer door switch, cold control not cycling on / back on. Compressor intermittantly cycling / bad start device / weak compressor, condenser fan slow or not cycling...should be on anytime compressor is running. Some of these items can be visually checked, some require advanced knowledge and a multimeter for test. Be careful of live voltage and sharp edges.

Compressor area above refrigerator is getting very hot


Hi,


Check Thermostat.
Proper Cleaning/Defrosting of fridge and freezer.
Proper Placing and Distance from wall.
If your hand bear the body temperature of that specific area then its normal.
Contact technician to verify Freon pressure.


Best of Luck,

Freezer side of 690 does not work (not even cool); refrigerator side works just fine.


Check the fan in the freezer department. It has to run when the door i closed. Sometimes the door switch is bad. This causes the freezer coils to ice up so the cold air does not go through the coil to cool the freezer. Unplug the power cord for 1 hour or two hours. Then plug the cord in and see if the freezer gets cold.
