Question about Sub-Zero 700TC Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
We have a 700TCI 2 Series fridge/freezer. The fridge door has become difficult to open. A vacuum appears to be created inside the fridge compartment. Excessive pulling force is needed to open the door - in fact my wife cannot open the door but I can. To establish that a vacuum is being created inside the fridge I placed a thin self-adhesive pad on the magnetic door seal surface. That made the door easy to open BUT presumably cannot be left in place. What is causing the door to be difficult to open?
Simple fix! A small puddle of water near the fridge led me (indirectly) to this fix. Our model is a fridge only, no ice or water dispenser and nothing spilled inside. Upon closer inspection I found a narrow tray along the back wall above the crisper drawers with a drain hose leading under the unit. Apparently it's a condensate drain, a plugged one at that! I cleaned it out, yuk, and soon discovered it serves a dual purpose... as a vent to help relieve the pressure from the vacuum created immediately after closing the door. It has renewed our love affair with this fridge. Hoo Hoo!
