#309156 Subzero 650 G/S 2 Fan replacement

Posted by TheApplianceTechnician on 09 December 2014 - 11:26 AM

Yes replace it, you're asking for bigger problems down the road if you don't. The new fan motor usually comes with a new rubber grommet, nut, and screws in a little bag included. IF it's a metal fan blade as long as you don't mangle the blade while wrestling it out you should be fine with just the fan motor. Just be careful with it. IF it's plastic order the blade. Take the bracket out with the fan motor and blade in one piece, do the swap and put it back in.

#299025 My freezer don't seem to work

"We have an old freezer that's not really cold enough" . . . . . They are great customers and great people. All I could do was scratch my head about how the hell do you defrost this thing?? It had to weigh 1000 pounds. I tried to tilt it and it wouldn't budge, I just started laughing.

Battle plan

1. Patience.

2. More of 1

3. repeat


You get the point. The ones i've worked on are pretty simple really., just a real pita because of the screws, rust, placement. . . . I like hadco for parts.


Vikings always seem to take 3 times as long as the regular ones

#213910 DIY recharge of Sub Zero 532

NO! Don't, the pressures are very different from a car 134a system. I have seen a few of these mechanic freon refills over the last few years and most of them are severely overcharged. Durham is right, it takes a lot more than a colored pressure gauge to figure out how much you would need anyway.

Usually droplets are from a gasket problem, check the gasket around the door a good check to see if it's sealing properly.

#203433 I Thought I Was on Jerry Springer

hahah, guess I'm not used to this kinda stuff. Saw a youngin slapping the holy everliving crap out of her dad because she didn't get her way. Said I'd have to order a part and split never to go back. Dysfunctional family means dysfunctional checking account. No thanks. . . .
