Was able to get an Authorized Subzero company here this morning with NO emergency service charge. Turns out the fan needs to be replaced and it also needed freon.

I need a new compressor for my 12 year old subzero refrigerator.I was quoted $1150 installed.Does this sound high? Marty


Hi,

Subzero wants customers to call the on these, Call them and most likely they will concession the parts needed to save you some money. I see this a lot as I am a certified repair person. This you save you about 500 or so, but your question is yes, this is about right as the EPA mandates us to recover and collect the charge of freon. The disposal fee and equipment is what makes the rate higher on any refrigerator not just yours.

Original warranty was 12 years parts, I am sure they will help if your using a certified servicer.

Good Luck

How difficult is it to replace a subzero 650 compressor?


With E.P.A. laws, of you do not have the equipment, I would donate the unit for a great tax break. Any unit that is over 10 years old, always replace to a higher energy effiecient unit. It will pay for it self in a few years, just off the money you saved. If the unit is only a few years old, the new compressor will run $120-$175, plus a coupple hundred for labor.

We have been getting service code 50 for our SubZero -- it;s a 690 model fridge/freezer. I cleaned everything however over last three weeks the error repeats. I reset the board by pulling power from the...


Error code 50 means excessive refrierator section compressor run. Possible causes include: dirty condenser, stopped condenser motor, faulty termistor or an evaporator refrigerant leak. If it is a refrigerant leak it usually shows up as frost or water driplets half way down on the back wall. Clear codes by holding the alarm button in for 15 seconds.

Freezer Compressor Leaks Oil and Stopped Working


Hi I'm a subzero asc (Autorized service center) Subzero would not be responsible, your unit is out of there warranty. Now if the service company your dealing with is any good they can get a new compressor under a part warranty from there part distributor. Also in my many years working on subzero I have never seen oil dripping from the compressor unless you have a leak somewhere in the sealed system. Unfortunately the only thing you can do is see if your service provider will fix the unit. they will charge you labor if they get the part in warranty. It's possible that the service provider did not to the job properly but that's your word against there's. Good luck I hope everything works out for 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.
