SOURCE: Need to change the light bulbs

The light shield has two tabs, one on each side. They may be on the front or back of the shield, It fits either way. Pull the tabs down and slide the shield back and forth a couple of time and it should drop from the four pegs that hold it in place. You will have access to the bulbs. You can go to http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=02030 and find a parts distributor near you or take a bulb to the store and match it. Make sure you get the same wattage rating.

SOURCE: 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 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.

SOURCE: sub zero refrig - ice forming inside

The solution posted previously is TOTALLY WRONG. A Sub Zero ref doesn't have a heating element in the fresh food section. Only in the Frozen food section. It has 2 totally separate systems for each section. 2 Compressors and 2 evaporators. They share a condenser. If you are having ice build up in the refrigerator then the problem you are having is a refrigerant leak in the fresh food evaporator. You need to have a certified tech come out and replace the evaporator in your refrigerator section of your Sub Zero. Not sure what you are asking about the thermostat.

SOURCE: Sub-Zero service manual

Here is a link to the error codes. If there is a fault condition these should be flashing on the display:

http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/06/29/error-codes-for-the-sub-zero-600-series-refrigerators/

One this to try is a hard reset: unplug and wait for a few minutes and re-plug back in. Sometime this resets the service condition and will then display the error codes.

Ice is displayed when the ice maker is turned on. Press the ice on/off and it should turn off.

Im trying to recharge my ac in my 91 nissan pickup and im pretty sure i know where the lowside ac port is but the hose adapter from my recharge kit does not fit snugly on the fitting?


Your 1991 will have R12 refrigerant in it unless it has been retrofitted to the newer R134a refrigerant. If it is still factory original then you will need to retrofit it to the new refrigerant, or see if you can find some R12. R12 has been discontinued years ago and if you can find it it is very expensive.

What type of refrigerant does a 1990 Ford Ranger use?


there are only two types of refrigerant (or normally called as freon): R12 and R134. R12 is designed for car model 2000 and below. though, some old car compressors can accomodate R134 provided that you change your auxillary fan (fan for your aircon condenser) since R134 is hotter than R12. Ask an aircon technician if your compressor can be charged with R134.

Most of the countries now ban the use of R12 since it is more harmful to our ozone.

I need to put freon in my 1992 ford explorer but i can not find the valve for it. Can you help please.


Your 1992 vehicle is probably R12 and not R134a. Since R12 was discontinued due to enviornmental concerns, your system will need to be "retrofitted" to the new 134a refrigerant. I would take it to any auto A/C shop that you trust and have them do the work. they will need to remove all the R12 refrigerant, flush all the oil out, change the service ports, replace the drier/reciever and then recharge. Total cost for this will depend on what area of the country you live in as labor rates are set by the geographic area.

Clean front of Sub Zero


Try GOO Gone in either the liquid spray or the gel. This will not remove anything like paint or things like that. You can also use this on your cars finish and will not hurt it. So you are good to go
