Question about Sub-Zero Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
If its as warm as you say and the refrigerant is R134A his estimate of the pressure (4# is low for 38'F) is correct.
As for the leak I can only assume he sees something to make him believe its the evaporator.
As to the warranty (if its under 1 year it should all be covered. If its 2-5th year just the compressor is covered on some manufacturers others its the sealed system meaning leaks also).
And as far as $400.00? That's not out of line from my experience (limited by 30 years of doing this) I believe from what you have said about this fellow he knows his stuff and what it costs him to do business and that he will be around to perform your next service you need also. A rare thing to see these days. Even with hard times everywhere a business still has to make a profit and cover over head. Unless your AIG, GM, or Chrysler.

Make sure the condensor is clean, blow some Air though the Condensor to make sure good Air flow towards Compressors. also, you might have a bad defrost timer or Freezer Control... worst case you might have a bad Compressor... hope I can help....

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.

Hi Kirk Huggins - Do you hear the compressor running? The compressor is constantly meant to go on and off frequently to keep unit at a constant temperature. If you do not, the refrigerator could possibly have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system including a faulty compressor or evaporate fan. Contact a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues and to assist with the repairs.
