If you have a "lump" of ice on back wall of fresh food compartment then you are most likely low on freon and have a leak in the fresh food evaporator. Sub Zero has had problems in this regard. If your back wall is frosted up over a large section then you need to check to see if your evaporator fan motor in the fresh food compartment is working. If not then that is your problem if so then your cold control may be bad and not kicking out causing ice to form on evaporator. A door not sealing can also cause this condition.

The evaporator coil inside the freezer compartment is iced over and can't transfer cold air in thes condition,remove panel inside freezer on back side of freezer compartment and thaw it out with a hair dryer,then check the defrost heating element for continuity,if its open replace it,if its good, ,check the defrost control that powers the defrost heater

    Sub Zero's do not transfer cooling from freezer to fresh food compartment. Either they have two compressors and two evaporators (one for each the freezer and fresh food) or they have one compressor and two evaporators. Still do not send air from freezer to fresh food.

I need instructions how to replace the cold control on Sub-Zero 550 Freezer.


Here is a pic of the insides. The cold control is at top right of this pic and the capillary tube goes from it across to middle and then down the centre. All this is can be reached from the back of the refridgerator.

Is it normal for warm air to blow out of the fan at the top of a side by side sub zero. Its over 20 years old and we recently had the compressor replaced on the freezer side.


warm air will blow out from the condenser fan which is in the same area as the compressor.
There should be no warm air inside the freezer of fridge.

Fridge portion of my 611 is warm but freezer is still cold. Help.


The only other thing that seems could be wrong is that your freon lines are icing up and is cause you to not cool properly. Pull out your fridge and check the compressor on the bottom

Sub zero freezer too warm


I believe the freezer has to get down to 7 degrees or lower for icemaker to harvest. Clean your condenser and blow it out. If that doe not fix it you will need service for sealed system

Sub-zero 550 reefridgerator top freezer bottom - refridgerator door not staying closed


Just a guess, but I would check the gasket on the door. They can go bad or get distorted and bunch up and cause the door to bind and not close properly. Also check that the fridge is leveled properly. Will the door close if pushed? Will it stay closed?
