Question about Sub-Zero 30.1 cu. ft. Cabinet Depth Side-by-Side Refrigerator 632 / F

2 Answers

WHATS THAT NOISE??!!

I've had my Sub Zero for about 6 years & I havent had any problems...UNTIL NOW. :o( The unit is built into an island in the center of my kitchen. I noticed recently that the countertop was above the Sub Zero extremely hot so I cleaned the vent. About a week later, an unbelievably loud running noise started coming from the Sub Zero. Not good. When you open the drawer, t sounds like a broken fan noise. Do you have any idea as to what the problem might be & is this expensive to replace?

More likely a bad compressor, which is more sensitive to temperature extremes...may be cheaper to replace the frig.

My ice maker is making a clicking sound on my sub zero 650

Do you have water connected? Was it working before?

Disconnect the power to the icemaker. Does the clicking stop. If it does it is the servo motor. Sub Zero are highly overengineered, you will need a technician. These days they fix with a laptop.

I have a 12 year old sub zero 590 side by side. The freezer is not working well.ice is fine but ice cream is very soft. Meats and others are not so hard either.

Jai,
If the ice is still frozen after any time the temp is below 32. But thats not cold enough as you know. Target temp in such a freezer is between +10 to 0 F inwhich ice cream is good and firm. BTW many restaurants and food pro's set and judge the freezer temp by the firmness of ice cream! A twelve year old Sub Z should not be having such problems and causes could be numerous. Lets talk about what you can do. This is a built in unit correct? Ok, get your step ladder and remove the cover above the doors and look for a dirty coil, a failed fan, or both. If the coil is dirty enough to restrict air flow or fan not blowing this IS a problem! One that will cause such problems and is my bet to whats going on.

My Sub Zero 642 is freezing my fruits and vegetables. I have not changed the temperature settings. What's up? I did unplug the unit to reset it but it keeps having the same problem.

Usually a bad thermostat, but it can be a freon system problem, or a problem with your evaporator fan motor. These are problems that a good Sub Zero technician needs to repair, especially if you have a system problem, since a system problem is under a 6 to 12 year warrantee. Make sure that the company you call is a Sub-Zero warrantee company. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I have had my subwoofer for 6 years. It has always

One way to check the operation is to connect a source directly to the inputs of the sub.

A CD player will work fine. Connect the out puts of the CD player to the inputs on the sub. Play a CD.

If you get music from the sub, then no problems with sub.

If nothing, sub has problem.

Could be

A Dead amp.

A Dead speaker.

Velodyne products usually need to be returned to them for service.

Cost is unknown.

Top shelf of old sub-zero refigerator 60 degrees, bottom shelf OK

u may have a defrost problem it would be worth paying for the service call if something simple like defrost or a fan would still be more than 200 but worth it

Sub-zero Fridge not cooling and ice forming

You do have a leak and it will be in the evaporator. So call a factory authorized company and have it replaced.The warranty of a Sub Zero sealed system is full parts and labor for years 1-5 and parts only in year 6-12. Sub Zero expects a lot of their service companies so it behooves you to call one. To find an authorized company go to http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip= or call 800-222-7820
