To troubleshoot your Sub Zero refrigerator keep in mind these simple tips. IF your unit has a digital display, see below for useful Sub Zero repair tips.

  • Error Codes
    • Assess if you are getting any SubZero error codes (EC 24, 08, 07, etc.)
  • Indicator Lights
    • Are any indicator lights turned on (i.e., service light or vacuum condenser light)
      • Many of these indicator lights can be resolved by a simple and thorough cleaning of the condenser coil.
      • Proper maintenance and cleaning of your Sub Zero appliance will keep the unit running at its best. A small percentage of customers opt to perform the cleaning on their own. 
      • IF, DIY is not your forte, SubZero Repair Houston can assist you. IF, you choose to do this on your own, take this precaution to avoid injury: cleaning must only be done after turning off the unit and once the heat of the compressor and condenser compartment has cooled.


In all Sub Zero models, it is important to clean and maintain the unit every 6 months or every year. A Sub Zero refrigerator not cooling, or leaking water can often times result from having a dirty condenser coil.

Clogged coils can cause the refrigerator to stop cooling entirely. It is important to address these problems as soon as possible.

Get your unit cleaned and inspected, if you see these early warning signs:

  • Excess dust and lint on the compressor grill cover
  • Panel and door frames heating up
  • Any and or all indicator lights on
  • Any signs of water, condensation, or rust
  • If any of these conditions exist for an extended period of time irreparable damage can be caused such as peeling and or yellowed paint, rust, and more

If you are in doubt about how to clean your unit or have specific questions related to your appliance, call to speak to one of our representatives (281)-558-7350.

Refrigerator Not Cooling

Refrigerator Repair Tips

Appliances seem to breakdown when you need them most and when you least expect them to, most always putting a wrench in your daily routine. Some proper maintenance can keep your unit in good condition. Other times, it is best to hire an appliance repair company, especially if your refrigerator is not cooling or keeping the proper temperature. Here some things you can do at home and red flags to let you know when it is best to hire Sub Zero repair professionals.


DIY Refrigerator Repair Tips

  • Try and identify the problem: Is your unit making noise or does it sound like it is over-running? If so, you can clean the coils. Did you know that refrigeration units should be cleaned every 6 month to 1 year to keep them in good shape? With the right mind and a few handy tools around the house, cleaning the condenser coils can be easily done. If that doesn’t make a difference, you should consider calling for help.


  • If you feel that you can handle the repair yourself, you can save time and money by making sure the basic components of the unit are hooked up properly and in good condition. Basic refrigerator troubleshooting can also be solved by looking through the Manual. Before calling a professional, make sure to check the power, controls, condenser coils, check your cold controls and that your fridge or freezer door seals properly.


Red Flags – When You Should Call a Professional

  • If you have a Freon leak or your refrigerator is not cooling or not cooling enough. This is a common issue in refrigerators. Each customer has their preference in deciding if repairing or purchasing a new unit is most beneficial to them. Many customers opt for repairing the unit, since it usually only a fraction of the cost for purchasing a new one.


  • Depending on your level of comfort, doing repairs yourself may solve the problem, but in some cases, it is not wise to do so. For example, if the unit has an electronic issue, such as the touch panel not working, or the unit is not turning on, it is better left to a professional. Units that have problems related to cooling or lack thereof, leaking water or ice build-up are areas best left to a skilled technician. If you find yourself in this situation, you should think about calling a qualified service professional that specializes in Sub Zero Repair Houston.
