#295811 SubZero 590 Won't Make Ice, Replaced Water Valve

Posted by woftam on 07 June 2014 - 01:12 PM

Should be 120v at valve. I switch connectors on valve and hit water dispenser to check all the time. . Also when wires are switched remove tube at valve to ice maker when hitting dispenser to check for water.


#293142 Sub Zero pricing fair?

Posted by woftam on 08 May 2014 - 08:05 PM

What is serial number? You said he was certified did Sub Zero refer you. Prices seem high but might be different where you are. I do ref side evaps in forty-five minutes to an hour. Did he force freezer into defrost to see if heater came on and check length of cycle? What error codes did you have?


#287505 Sub Zero Evaporator 632 Pre 1810000

Posted by woftam on 11 March 2014 - 07:34 PM

Again check drain pan loop or after you pull vacuum it will draw water into system and you will end up replacing it a second time.


#284043 Wolf Double Oven Troubleshooting

Posted by woftam on 09 February 2014 - 04:55 PM

There is two thermal cut outs. One for each oven. If cut out is open it will disable all elements in that oven. Sounds like both bake elements are bad and maybe upper oven relay board. These all have five year part warranty. Is there foil or any type of liner on floor of oven? This will reflect too much heat back down on elements and cause them to burn out.


#267753 Sub Zero 601F problem

Posted by woftam on 10 September 2013 - 06:15 PM

If heater comes on probably board. Thermistor is not likely. Press and hold colder and power buttons at same time for @ 5 seconds to enter service mode. Press colder button while in service to toggle through thermistor readings. Will exit service mode on own after @ 90 seconds.

S/Z refrigerators are known for evaporator leaks. Remove back panel. Evaporator will probably have mini volcanoes on it where Freon is leaking.


#267743 Sub Zero 601F problem

Posted by woftam on 10 September 2013 - 05:05 PM

On freezer when coil is frosted over, press and hold ice button for @15 seconds to force defrost cycle. Heater should come on. If not check for 110v at heater and ohm out heater and bi-metal. If heater comes on problem is probably control board.

With refrigerator if Freon had to be added there is a leak and needs to be repaired or just going to leak out again.

Southern Coastal is S/Z part supply for area.


#267246 Sub Zero defrost troubleshooting

Posted by woftam on 06 September 2013 - 10:38 AM

Defrost bi-metal should be closed when cold. Timer should be 21 minutes of defrost every eight hours of compressor run time. Check for 110v at bi-metal and heater while in defrost.


#264970 sub-zero vacuum condenser light, compressor always on

Posted by woftam on 16 August 2013 - 07:19 PM

S/Z part is 7006964. I don't like dye dries on ref side. Found they can clog cap tube. Know others use them though. Do use other after market driers without problems.


#264758 sub-zero vacuum condenser light, compressor always on

Posted by woftam on 14 August 2013 - 07:07 PM

That is a 4204430 evaporator. Vacuum condensor light is before s/n 1810000. After 1810000 has service light. If prior owner had warranty work done SZ should be able to find record from address.


#255734 Subzero 3211RFD Condenser Cooling

Posted by woftam on 23 May 2013 - 08:16 PM

  Sounds like you need to blow out cond coils..It is going to make mess.I carry old towels to seal off compressor side best I can and use exhaust from shop vac. Baffle does force air down to drain pan so check pan if you are going to run without it.

 

  I see in video ref side heat exchanger and compressor was replaced, was evaporator replaced as well? Can also see fre side drier has been replaced but ref drier  passes by to quick to make out. Was it replaced ?




#243244 Wolf Gas Range model# S60GBKK-1

Posted by woftam on 28 November 2012 - 09:17 PM

  When you are checking burners check venturi tube coming into buner. You should not be able to remove it from burner body. Also it looks like there are after market drip pans in trays. Wolf says you cannot use them because they change air mixture.




#235207 SubZero 650/S Ice in Refrigerator

Posted by woftam on 28 June 2012 - 08:23 PM

If you are getting a block of ice under crisper draw you most likely need the floor heater kit #4202530.

650s is stainless door 650f is framed door. No difference other than door trims.


#233814 Subzero 680 evaporator fan freezes

Posted by woftam on 05 June 2012 - 06:59 PM

Need serial number. Is the fan motor mounted horizontal under evap coil or vertical next to it. If under coil it sounds like defrost drain is freezing up and overflowing. Check wiring and trough and drain heaters.


#233812 Subzero 550 - Cracked drain tube BS fridge - How to replace?

Posted by woftam on 05 June 2012 - 06:52 PM

Sorry I took so long. Part number for floor heater kit is 4202530. I have same number for drain tube and it still available.


#233400 Subzero 550 - Cracked drain tube BS fridge - How to replace?

Posted by woftam on 30 May 2012 - 06:51 PM

Drain tube runs down back of unit. If water is freezing under drawers you have other problems. Even if water leaks under draws it shouldn't freeze in ref section. Insulation between ref and freezer is breaking down allowing floor of ref to get too cold. There is a heater kit for this problem. I will get part numbers for kit and hose tomorrow and post tomorrow when I get home.
