Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Vacuum condenser message flashing

I had a problem with my subzero 650 not cooling. It went up to 48 degrees and stayed there even after we vacuumed the condenser 3 times. The repairman suggested it was the warm weather. After 2 weeks the temp has finally gone back down to 36 - 39 degrees, but the condenser message is still flashing. The book says it will reset after the unit is turned off and then back on, have done this several times. Do I need to leave the unit off for a certain amount of time, or do I still have a hidden problem?

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.

My Subzero 650 does not stay on 34 degrees consistently. It is not now and I have turned the unit off for 15 minutes but to no avail. It has done this before but after a 36-48 hours it is back to 34...


aHi,
You need to check the following to make sure your fridge is working properly:
Vent blockage - Air flows between the freezer and refrigerator sections to provide proper cooling via air vents.
Condenser coil - When the condenser coil is dirty it causes the sealed system to overheat and therefore the refrigerator will not cool properly.
Defrost Cycle - When the refrigerator goes into defrost, the cooling mode stops and a defrost heater energizes to remove accumulated frost from the evaporator (cooling) coil, which causes the freezer temperature to rise slightly.
Proper Air Circulation - Refrigerators require a specific amount of clearance around the cabinet to allow for air circulation. If the refrigerator does not have the minimum clearance required, the refrigerator cannot cool properly.
Hope this helps.

My 12 year old subzero fridge (650) is not getting cold. this morning i discovered ice behind the fresh food drawer, removed it, it was running fine, temp 35. now tonight the temp is 51. freezer is fine....


Is it flashing vacuum condenser? Ice behind the crisper drawer shouldn't effect the temp. What is it set at? You can go to www.subzerospecialists.com and click on Tech Help for additional info.

My Subzero Condenser fan runs constantly - but coils are clean


If it is similar to mine at home (Model 550) the condensor fan is designed to run continuously, even when both the freezer and refrigerator are shut off. There is no control or switch in the fan circuit, so it just runs whenever the fridge is plugged in to the wall. It uses about 56 watts.
