    Exact same problem...with icing on lower left of back wall. Compressor runs continuously. I noticed the flashing 'vacuum compressor', and I did so. Temp is around 42 and not going any lower. Do I also have an evaporator leak, and is this a difficult/expensive repair?

If the light keeps coming back on and temps are rising in the refer section, then you most likely have an evaporator leak. Check to see if you see either a moist spot or ice on the back wall on the left side of the back wall of the refer. If you do, it's definetly a leak. Call a authorized Servicer.

I had the same problem. Then ice started building up on the left back wall of the inside of the fridge.Turns out this is a common problem and the evaporator needs replacing. My fridge is 10 yrs. old. The warranty on this part is 12 yrs. just have to pay for the labour.

How can I get the refrigerator to cool (the freezer is working fine)?


Double check your refrigerator setting, it should be separate from the freezer. Check the vent is clean. If it is still not cooling, set freezer to warmer, turn off the unit, unplug, wait 3 minutes. Restart and see if the condenser starts

The condensor is clean, but the vacum condensor lights keep coming on. What do I do?


when "vacuum condenser" or "service" lights r on, it means compressor is running more time than desired. most common issue that freon leaks out at evaporator in fresh food section. thats the most common issue with all subzero models. Hope thats helpful.

The ice cube indicator is blinking


From the manual:

The Control Center monitors refrigerator and

freezer temperatures as well as the ice maker

system. If there is a temperature or ice maker

problem, you'll be alerted by a flashing

SERVICE indicator light. This same SERVICE

light will also flash if the condenser needs

cleaning. Before calling for service, please

check and see if your condenser area needs

cleaning. Refer to Condenser Cleaning,
page 22.

CONDENSER CLEANING

In all Built-In models, the condenser is located

behind the grille. First, remove the grille. Then

using a soft bristle brush, vacuum to remove

dust and lint from the condenser. NOTE: To

avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to

vacuum in the direction of the fins (up and

down). Clean the condenser area every three

to six months.


CAUTION

Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity

off at the control panel. When you

clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid

injury from the sharp condenser fins.

Failure to clean the condenser could

result in temperature loss or mechanical
failure or damage.

We have been getting service code 50 for our SubZero -- it;s a 690 model fridge/freezer. I cleaned everything however over last three weeks the error repeats. I reset the board by pulling power from the...


Error code 50 means excessive refrierator section compressor run. Possible causes include: dirty condenser, stopped condenser motor, faulty termistor or an evaporator refrigerant leak. If it is a refrigerant leak it usually shows up as frost or water driplets half way down on the back wall. Clear codes by holding the alarm button in for 15 seconds.

My 650/f sub-zero is not cooling in the refer but the freezer is working fine?


Subzero uses two compressors so the freezer is a separate system. The first thing to do is clean the condenser. You can find instructions on how in the owners manual or at subzero.com. They even have videos. If that doesn't take care of it you could have a bad condenser fan motor a sealed system issue or a temperature sensor issue. Also I have seen if you put something tall enough to push up on the light cover on the top shelf that can stop the evaporator fan at the top of the refrigerator section.
