Re: sub zero frig
First check the condenser up top behind the grille and on the right side. If it is clogged with dirt, shut it down and use a vacuum to remove the dust. If tis clean then look at the display. Does it read "service" or "vacuum condenser" Also, whhat temp does the freezer read on the display? Lastly is it saying anything like "EC40"? These may be clues as to the problem. Let me know about this and I can give you more help if necessary. Good luck!

Hi, As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
First, is the temp really 40?? Get your outside thermometer and stick it in there. You may get a surprise. If so, see if the thermostat will respond to any changes. It is possible that either the sensor or the electronics have gone bad...I'd vote for the sensor.
the other possibility might be low gas...but I'll want to see what the temp in the unit is and whether the changes you make do anything.
you might have a few problems,, make sure to check the condensor is clean, also make sure the condensor fan motor is going... you might have a bad Condensor fan motor, and Ref Control or a Freon Leak @ the Evaporator... I would call a tech to check it out...
Ice maker was intermittent at best - ice was often just a shell. After
two failures to correct we had the ice maker (a Whirlpool - on a Sub
Zero - Go figure) replaced. Then the paddle that detects the ice level
broke. Next step a new GE.
Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.
