IF YOUR CONDENSER COILS WERE DIRTY JUST CLEANING TO OUTSIDE OF THE COILS WILL NOT CUT IT YOU WILL NEED TO BLOW AIR THOUGH THE COIL TO GET ALL THE DIRTY OUT OF THEM; USE A SHOP-VAC THAT BLOWS OR A CAN FO COMPRESSED AIR BECAUSE THOSE COILS ARE ABOUT 4 INCHES THICK AND DUST MAY STILL BE TRAPPED. IF YOU STILL HAVE PROBELMS AFTERWARDS CALL A SERVICE COMPANY TO LOOK AT IT UNLESS THE RF IS 22 YRS OR OLDER, SZ RF 650 WHICH IS TODAYS EQUAL RUN ABOUT ABOUT $5500 TO $6200 INSTALLED SO YOU WILL BE BETTER OF FIXING IT THE AVG. COST OF REPAIR IS 225 TO 1500. MASTER APPLIANCE TECH.

My subzero 550 never stops running. everything is working fine, just had freezer compressor side charged. it just seems wrong to be always running??


try to adjust your thermostat normal setting maybe you set it to maximum setting thats why the temp. cannot reach even your comp.running long hours. or maybe your ref . is over loaded try to lessen the load or your door is have leakage of cold air try to fix gasket.

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

Subzero Model 550, freezer not working properly


Blow out the condenser with an air compressor. Make sure the evaporator coil is not frosted up, if so, the drawer may naot have been closed properly, or you may have a defrost problem, (timer, terminator, etc). Possible freon leak in the high side drain loop. Compressor may not be pumping efficiently, could have a bad condenser fan motor.
