Common Sub Zero Fridge Problems

Insufficient Cooling

You can easily tell this by the loss in cool temperature in your fridge and freezer, or if the area between the doors is getting hot. You can also check if your compressor motor is working. It is in a black kettle-like casing and can be found on top of the Sub-Zero appliance. If it is humming or making constant noise, there could be a problem with one or several of the various components.

The number one reason for a warm fridge is that the condenser is clogged with debris, lint, and hair; the condenser should be cleaned every six months.

No Power

To check for power, push the power button on the display located in the top right-hand corner. Next, check the power supply, which can be found plugged in behind the grill section on the top right-hand side of the appliance. You test that the power source is functioning by plugging in something else, such as a phone charger. Lastly, it is possible that the circuit breaker or fuse has tripped. This is found in a common area of the house and will list all electrical units.

Filter Replacement

By not replacing the filter regularly, it can result in sediment and debris build up. As a result, you may not be getting the cleanest water. The filter cartridge should be changed every twelve months. Water filters should be replaced when water flow becomes low or when the indicator is lit

No Ice or Water

Like issues mentioned above, your freezer may not produce ice if your freezer is not cool enough or the filter is clogged with sediment. Ice makers also require 40 psi to fill. You can do this by turning on the water supply valve. At times, the fill tube may also be frozen. You can do this by removing the icemaker and looking at the tube itself.
