Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

4 Answers

Fridge portion temp

Yesterday, when I cleaned my fridge I noticed the temp went up to 48 -50 degrees. I checked later and it was still at 48 degrees.
I emptied it and then thought I would try pressing the off button and allowed it to remain off for 2 or 3 minutes. I turned it back on and when I checked it this morning it was at 34 degrees. - exactly what I had set the temp. to be. The freezer temp has remained fine -of course -
Did I jsut reset it and everything is now OK?.

    I didn't clean any mechanical areas of my Sub Zero. Only routine cleaning of crisper drawers, wiping off shelves etc.
    The door was open for a prolonged period of time. Usually the temp does rise a bit when I do this type of cleaning. This time tho, the temp went higher than normal 50 degrees and didn't go down.
    It wasn't until I emptied the fridge and thought to try turning it off and then back on again to see if that would do anyting.
    Do I need to call for service or have I corrected the problem? and what was the problem that turning it off and back on again corrected?

Normally this is the procedure of reset for this type of problems and unknowingly you did the right thing and thats good.this type of problem occurs if the fridge is kept open for long time in the power ON condition the temprature of the fridge rises a bit and this whole procedure caused a problem to your fridge.so take care of this things and you can use your fridge freely its perfect.
rate this solution if you find it worth.

Clean your coils first, if they are dirty from dog hair or lint in general it will overheat compressor and cause temps to fluctuate

GE model PDS22SFSALSS temp lights of the power control board blinking and clicking,what should I do


I have owned this fridge for less than 5 years. I had the same problem..very annoying...come to find out that the motherboard controlling the fan went bad. I will never own another GE fridge again, too many problems with GE. I paid for a sevice tech to come out and fix/replace the motherboard..$150.00 later and now the freezer portion doesn't seal and is always defrosting! I cleaned and checked all the gaskets, even cleaned the coils...still no solution. Time to put this dinosaur on craiglist and buy Samsung.

My wife posted the information below and I would like to add more to the story: We have two identical Amana Bottom Freezer Refrigerators, Model:BRD18V2S installed in our Kitchen. Both fridges are in an alcove and stand next to each other. One fridge is used as the beverage fridge and othe other is used as a food fridge. At about 10pm she noticed that an entire bottle (600ml) of Gin had cracked and emptied into the refrigerator section of the fridge used for beverages. We do not know how long the spilled gin was in the fridge. She mopped it up and we went to bed. At 7am the next morning, the beverage fridge and its freezer were showing 71 Degrees F. and everythind including the ice had melted. (We have aftermarket external temperature gages that show the fridge/freesor temperatures) The food fridge uninvolved with the gin spill was reading 68 Degrees F

Re: Tempurature Problems


The thermostat is likely failing intermittently, or the defrost timer could be failing.

Both parts can be tested (and should have been) by the repairman.

The defrost timer turns on and off to let the coils defrost - but if it stays off - can cause the rise in temperature. The thermostat, however, reports the temperature to the timer, so either (or both) could be to blame.

Have them tested.

The refrigerator side is not cooling.


ALMOST DEFINATELY YOU WILL HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED AUGER(MOTOR)CONTROLLING THE AMOUNT OF CHILL ENTERING THE FRIDGE COMPARTMENT. IF YOU SET THE FRIDGE TO MINIMUM AND LISTEN CAREFULLY, THERE SHOULD BE A SOUND INDICATING THE AUGER IS WORKING.( OPENING AND CLOSING THE FLAP). SET TEMP. TO MAX AND LISTEN. IF NOTHING, IT COULS BE A DEFECTIVE MOTOR OR FAULTY THERMISTOR(TEMP. PROBE).
