Sub-Zero 532 not cooling

Well, it cools when the cover is not in place over the fridge fan. i recently replaced the fridge fan motor and blade with oem sub-zero parts since the motor was going bad and making a lot of noise. now, with the cover off it cools fine. with the cover in place it will not cool at all. the fan blade is not impeded by the cover, it seems to run fine, but no cooling takes place.

Simple think I guess - just pull down a little a plastic fan blade on motor shift it will produce a powerful air flow. Fan blade should sit pretty close to the shift end. ;)

Where is the fan on the freezer side that cools the fridge on sub zero 690


Hi,

The freezer section has its own fan and the fridge has its own fan motor. The two systems are separate from each other and does not share air. The Fan in the freezer is located behind the ice maker in the freezer section.

I hope this helps.

Re: Lights and fan problems for Sub Zero 532 Side by side refrigerator.


First of all if you're condensor motor is controlled by electronic control board varyable speed type you might want to think about looking at replacing the control board. But first I would take a voltmeter test to see if the fan motor is getting enough voltage. If the voltage varies with the temperature inside the box then you have a controller. If the voltage remaind constant (120) and the motor still slows down yoy have a bad fan motor. As far as you're like the problem goes the only thing I can think of besides loose wires or bad switch.would be if it operated off the same control board.

We have a wonderful SubSero bottom frezer refrigerator. Recently the refrigerator is making a loud motor sound that we have never heard before. I think we need some maintanence. Please advise.


If the sound is from the inside the freezer compartment its a small fan that circulates air. If it is from the back outside of the unit its your condensor fan motor. You can replace these yourself just let us know. Be aware over time the fridge will stop cooling as the motor fails completely.

I have a noisy cooling fan. I have cleaned and removed all the dust from the vents in the compressor compartment, but the fan still make a squeeking sound. Can the fan be oiled or greased or should it...


Is the area between your fridge and freezer smoking hot? Can you smell the rubber seals melting? Does your fridge squeak like crazy? You have an issue with your condenser fan. You can save about $50 by fixing the fan motor yourself. I'm no engineer but this was an easy fix. 1) Unplug the fridge. 2) Take off the lower back panel covering the condenser and fan. 3) Unplug the fan (on the top left from the fan. 4) Slide the fan out of the bracket 5) Take the fan blade off. (This will take the most time and TLC, it is glued on) 6) Take the two screws out of the back of the housing. **The fan motor should be free of the housing and blade** 7) Remove the two screws from the fan motor housing. 8) Pull the shaft out of the motor and clean all parts with some oil and a rag. 9) Make sure all moving parts are well oiled then put the shaft back in the motor housing. 10) Replace the motor housing screws 11) Replace the motor into the fan housing and replace the screws. 12) Slide the fan blade back onto the shaft (I used some super glue to help hold it in place) 13) Slide the fan housing back into place 14) Plug the fan into the socket 15) Plug in the fridge to make sure your fix worked (it may take a minute to kick on) 16) Replace the lower cover

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp


check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly

Freezer not getting cold enough


I recently had my fridge run alot but not cool and I had to have the computer chip and a part in the blower motor changed before it cooler correctly again. You can try to clean off the back of the fridge by the motor really good, get inbetween the thin blades and everything, sometimes that will fix it.

Sub Zero side by side frig. side not cooling. Freezer works fine


There is a fan inside the freezer and possibly the fridge. It circulates the cold evenly throughout the unit. The fan may shut off with the door open so hold the door switch in to see if you hear the fan. It's behind the rear cover on the inside.

Subzero model 532 fridge not cooling well, freezer ok


Did u check condenser on the top behind the grill? If it's clean, check unit for evaporator freon leaking. Light....Possibly bad bulbs behind that plastic light cover or light switch - one of them located on upper portion of door frame.
