Top of grill is held by a spring. Pull out the top and lift the grill to remove. It can then be dropped down out of your way.

Need owners manual for a Sub-Zero 695 and maintenance manual


If your trying to remove the grill plate thats located at the top of the machine what you need to do is open both the freezer and the refridgerator doors and look up. There are three vertical phillips head screws that you'll need to remove first. After that you'll be able to pull the grate forward and remove the springs, one on each side that keeps tension on the grate. Once those are removed, the grate will be easy to take off.

The Vacuum Condenser message has come on. Where is the Condenser in my Sub Zero fridge Problem ?


The condenser is the coil on the outside of the unit that rejects the heat. most Sub zeros I have serviced had top mounted compressors and condenser coils .just find the compressor and the coil. Be careful of the fan. they just want you to check on it

Just had the condenser fan motor replaced on my 550 sub zero refrigerator. I forgot to asked the serviceperson the following questions: Does the fan continously stay on and what is the normal sound of...


Good day,
On models with 2 compressors the condenser fan motor runs 24/7. It must since the compressors run randomly and that motor must be on since it handles both units.

Fan noise is subjective. It itself makes little noise but the blade does. If for example the blade was changed from the nylon style to a metal blade (good idea) then it would be somewhat louder.
If the noise is not objectionable then I would use it as is.

My Sub-Zero side-byside freezer is at 35 degrees and says "vacuum condenser". What does it mean and what can I do?


At the top or bottom of your unit you have a removable panel that covers your compressor and condenser, you should hear a fan, that is your condenser fan, those coils need to be cleaned with a vacuum or dryer brush

601R sub zero vacuum condenser notice


Your problem might be serious enough to warrant a repairman's visit. But this was my experience: An official Sub Zero repair company in NYC told me this: If the "vacumm condenser" light keeps flashing after you've opened and cleaned the condenser grill, then either pull out the plug for the Sub Zero refrigerator or turn off the circuit breaker (or fuse) in your house that leads to it, wait for some minutes and then turn back on. It is NOT enough to turn off the unit using its own internal on-off switch - it has to be totally disconnected from the AC. I did so, waited 15 minutes, turned back on, and it worked!! I had vacuumed the condenser grill twice but the "vacuum condenser" light kept flashing AND the refrig would go bonkers if set below 38. Now the flashing warning is off and it's down to 35. Great !!!

Have you cleaned the coil? Pop the grate off the top of the fridge and vacuum the coil as well as the grate thoroughly.
