550 Door Seal Doesn't Seem to Be Working

We have a 550 Subzero. Recently we've noticed a lot of condensation on items in our refrigerator section. My husband noticed this morning that the door appeared to be open (slightly) which would account for that. I made sure that nothing was blocking the door from closing and pressed tightly to make sure it was firmly closed. A minute later when I opened it, it didn't appear to be sealed. Is there any way to fix broken door seals or is it time to kiss this frig goodbye?

    Few year ago the door was sealing very good; it was hard to open it after we just close it but now the door is not closing thigh sometime we find the door slightly open and the inside is getting hot from the lights staying on.
    Is the magnetic seal around the door must be change or is it a solution to my problem?

    should I use a door seal lube when replacing under lip of seal and metal fisture strips?

Since the doors on most refrigerators are adjustable, check the alignment of the door by pushing it close to being closed and seeing if the crack still visible is consistent around the three sides not yet in contact with the frame. These normally don't change much over the life of the unit but you may be able to improve the contact through an adjustment. Considering that the door does not seem to want to stay closed, check too on the hinge side to see if that part of the gasket is striking the frame too early.

Could be but before that check if settings are working. Set the freezer settings to coolest and see if cools. If ok, set to desired temp.

Sub-zero 550 refrigerator is too cold--icing at boottom near vegetable bins. Temperature is eratic--a lot of variation between top shelf and bottom and frequently shifting and changing.


It is very common for this refrigerator to have a freon leak in the evaporator.
Since you need a EPA license, This is usually beyond the scope for the home owner to repair.

I have a Model 550 SubZero Refrigerator. I have ice build up on the lowere left rear interior wall just above the criper drawers. Can you advise on cause and fix?


Check your door and door gasket. Make sure it has a tight seal. The ice is from air and moisture getting in on the left side.
I hope this helps. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

Subzero Model 550, freezer not working properly


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.
