How do I turn off and reset side-by-side Subzero fridge, to vacuum condenser?


Usually vacuum condenser light is on, not because of condenser coils dirty, but low on refrigerant unit, so compressor is running longer then usually. You can shut your subzero off at breaker box, if light will keep coming on in day or two, you will need to call service to replace evaporator. Most likely evaporator in Fresh food section has leak(at list its most common place). Check this video I made, even if Your Sub Zero sideXside it still will look the same about changing evaporator. Hope that was helpful.

It starts flashing VACUME CONDENSER after 24 hrs on my sub zero 690 side by side fridge .I cleaned the condenser but some one suggested I can wash with hot water spray bottle (I did not tried).If there is...


"Vacuum Condenser" light on this refrigerator will appear if you have any kind of issues - some of their models would have "Service" light instead of Vacuum Condenser. As My expirience shows Most likely Your Fresh food section is low on refrigerant - Evaporator might leak freon - so what we would have in this case - compressor runs for longer time then suppose to - as a result "Vacuum Condenser" or (some models) "Service" appears. Another sigh of low freon pressure people would notice ice build up on the back wall of the refrigerator section on the left side on the middle. I post video on my YouTube chanel, so u can check how to fix it properly.

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 a flashing vacuum condenser message on our screen -- what does this mean?


It probably means that your condenser coils are dirty and need to be cleaned up. The condenser coils are the copper tubes in the back of the machine next to the condenser fan. If just vacuuming them up doesn't sufficiently clean them then you may want to get some coil cleaner from your local hardware store or whoever sold you the refrigerator.
If the condenser coils are already clean then you may not have enough airflow. Be sure you have 4 to 8 inches of free space behind the unit to provide adequate airflow.

Smelly Jenn-Air Refrigerator


some of the most elusive odors can be developed by a rotted piece of fruit,hidden behind drawers,or stowed away inside door shelving somewhere...to remove odors/take about 5-6 charcoal briquettes and wrap them in newspaper this will absorb odor,and yeah-it actually works leave them in for about 2 days

My 650 flashes vaccum condenser i turned it off and did then turned it back on. a day later it flashes the same massage again does it have a reset or is there something else i need to do


Good day,
Cleaning the condenser is what the correct term should be. To vacuum many times does a poor job. I use either a compressed air tank with a hose, or else a push-pull vacuum cleaner with the hose and a crevice tool attachment on the end to blow the condenser clean.

Can create a mess at the time, but the condenser will be clean, and the purpose is to protect the compressor.
