    freezer seems fine, the fridge is warm and ice in the lower left side. We had fixed in the past and was very expensive - and did not last.

You are number 3 in the series this AM-
As you probably know, the recommended temperature range is between 35-45 F so if you control will not allow you to set this, the sensor or associated regulator has failed. 

This seems to be a problem with your brand; I'd check to see if there is a recall or factory 'fix' for this. They may have gotten a batch of defective sensors or controllers.

1988 sub zero refrigerator's freezer is warm on the top and not making ice


Hi,
Sounds like you have a fan problem around the evaporator in the freezer, it is possible it has failed and won't move air within the freezer section anymore. Cold air drops and heat rises.

Good Luck

Our sub-zero refrigerator has not been cooling properly and mold builds up near the bottom


My Sub Zero 561 would lose cooling in the main fridge area over time and I would usually turn the thermostat down. This helped but I'd get an ice buildup on the back wall of the fridge, especially if it was packed full of stuff and didn't allow for air movement. I finally removed everything, removed the back panel to the fridge, and discovered that the entire rear area was a solid block of ice. A defrost fixed it but I had to turn up the thermostat to keep it from coming back. Now it works great after driving me crazy for years.

pop the top panel and clean your condenser,this is the most common problem,other than that it could be your compressor or refrigerant leak.this model i believe is two separate systems so one will not effect the other/. good luck!

NEED ORIGINAL DOORS ON MY 561 SUB ZERO LOOKS LIKE DOORS ON FRONT


Given the model serial number I could get your decorative panels. The door itself is a framed door and designed to take a 1/4" insert. You can have new panels made if you have changed the cabinets, order stainless steel panels or put another material of your choosing. If you would like the more about the panels reply with mod and ser number which is in the freezer door jamb at eye level. Open the door past 90 degrees and look in.
