How do i shut off and reset sub=zero 690 fridge?

Its not necessary when "Vacuum Condenser" light is blinking means That condenser is dirty. That light will come on if compressor running too long. Most common problem is that Evaporator coil in fresh food section is leaking freon. It still might keep temps ok, but compressor need to run much more to keep temperature you set. check back wall in fresh food section on left side at the middle, behind drawers. if you see moisture in one spot or a little bit of ice build up, then You will need to call people who can replace evaporator. It is pretty expensive fix. I made video how it looks to repair this problem. Thanks.

Freezer always on

The service technician was partially correct. The compressor does not run all the time, but the fan inside does, and this actually is for efficiency. There must be something else affecting your electric bill.

Sub-Zero 680 - Service light flashing/need to change the filter

The service flashing means that you had a long run time over a period of time. You can reset it by turning the unit on and off or if you have a door alarm button hold that for 30 seconds and that will clear the fault code. If it comes back you have a problem that needs to be addressed such as cleaining the condensor. There is no factory filter on these units. If there is a filter it is most likely under the unit, which can be accessed by removing the kick. THe kick plate is held in place by two phillips head screws, remove them and have a look. If it was done by a "professional" they should have put an inline shut off valve for easy replacement of the filter.

Condensation and water in refrigerator

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 or call 800-222-7820 and explain the situation and get another company to fix it right.

Sub Zero Frezzer drawer

I had the same problem. I found the piece of plastic in the ice tray and couldn't figure how to put it back. I ordered a new ice flapper from the parts place on the internet and installed it. The ice maker now shuts off. Good Luck.
