Question about Sub-Zero 601R

1 Answer

Condensation and water in refrigerator

I keep getting lots of condensation -- wet cartons, bottles, jars and shelves -- in my Sub-Zero 36" refrigerator. I've had freon recharged numerous times and a freon leak "spray" sprayed in. The condensation/water is so bad that I get black spots (mold) on the items in the refrigerator. Please help.

It sounds like you need someone who knows what they are doing out to your house. A tech should find and repair or replace the component that leaks. A second trip should be not be needed. The fact you have mold tells me they have never properly did your repair. Mold will grow only when the cavity gets above 40 degrees for a sustained period of time. use http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=02030 or call 800-222-7820 and explain the situation and get another company to fix it right.

Frost developing inside the refrigerator on the bottom two shelves


Lets go over the way a sealed system works. There is a highj side and a low side. The low side is the side that passes through the evaporator coils inside the machine. Most times on the freezer side only, but sub zero has independent sealed systems for each side. Once it goes throug the evaporator its then condensed into a liquid state, the high side. This is also the hot side. Well, lower pressures in the low side would logically mean lower temperatures. So for the refridgerator not to freeze more freon is used on it to keep the low side pressure higher than normal, giving the cooling effect verses freezing. So, and here is the bad part, if you are seeing ice build up in the refridgerator side you have a freon leak some where allowing the pressure to be less than required to keep it above freezing. Call a service technician and depending on how the model, sub zero warranty is parts and labor covered for the first 6, and only parts from the 6-12 year.

Vacuum condenser keeps flashing


Clean the coils, usually at the bottom of the unit, remove the cover and use a vacuum and a bottle brush and clean away, use a crevice tool on the vac. hose but do not force it between the coils.
