I've found a Sub-Zero 550 in pretty nice shape, except that I'm told (by the seller) that it will probably need a new fridge compressor (on the advice of a repairman). The serial number is M1220619, manufacture date is Jan 96. Takes R 134a (and YES, I am certified to handle refrigerants).

I believe the part number I need is 4201670 -"service refrigerator compressor"... problem is, I can't seem to find anyone who stocks it. Can anyone help me with an alternate part number, or a tip on where to find one?

This fridge is MUCH nicer than anything that would normally be in my price range, but that's only if I can find the part, otherwise it's just a very large and pricey paperweight :P

Thanks in advance for any help.

SearsPartsDirect shows they have a 4201670 for $ 375
someone on eBay has a Maytag / Whirlpool Refrigerator Compressor Kit 12000018
(listing says: 4201670 replacement) for $ 198
12000018 Kit $ 234 at RepairClinic
But usually it's the Evaporator that is leaky ..
SubZero has a 12 year system parts warranty (maybe longer).

Awesome, :thanks: to both of you.


Group 51- I'm in Mo, 64077- but I probably ought to get it home and confirm that it is, in fact, the compressor at fault (and not say, the evaporator) before I go buying anything.:D

If you can plug the unit where ever it is sitting, let it start and operate.... if the compressor starts, well it aint the compressor :thumbsup: Sorry no evaporator............Sub-O comp. rarely fail...leaky evap.coils, #1 failure... <_< keep us posted....
