Icemaker no workee... Model # 253.7480240.

Aloha from Honolulu!

I have an icemaker which stopped working.
It started off by making icicles down the back wall of the freezer (still made ice though).
Then a few weeks later...Kaput!

I don't see an area to do a jumper for T-H.

See photo.
I have more photos but due to the size, was only allowed to upload one.

Not Making Ice

Sub-Zero 690/S P-1421049 Problems

25 July 2009 - 01:29 PM

Konnichi-wa!  Aloha from Hawaii!

I'm new to this forum so go easy on me!

Sub-Zero 690/S    P-1421049

I purchased this side-by-side for $4100 (display model) back in Fall of 2003.                               

It was delivered, then just sat (unplugged) until Jan. 07.

The kitchen was finally finished and it was finally set home and turned on. As of today I didn't connect the ice maker yet by the way.

After a few months, I noticed icicles dripping from the icemaker area. I removed the ice tray which was very difficult to remove due to the ice build up, and cleaned it. I  emailed Sub-Zero about it and never got a reply. I got to busy with work, so I just left it.

I would vacuum the condenser and remove icicles over the next few years whenever the "vacuum condenser" light would flash.

Yesterday my Wife notices that the goods on the top shelf of the freezer isn't frozen. I open the fridge side and see that the "vacuum condenser" & "service" lights are flashing. Along with an "EE" display where the freezer temp. digits usually are displayed.

I thoroughly vacuumed the condenser and the surrounding areas and made sure that the fan is running.

I turned off both the unit and circuit breaker at the panel. Turned them both back on after 5 minutes. The "vacuum condenser" light is off now, but the "service" light still flashes with the constant "EE" display.

The goods on the top shelf are a lot more frozen than yesterday but the ice cream is still soft.

Any ideas?


Onegai shimasu!

Mahalo (Thank You),
