Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi Joann Conner. Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. If you give me
just a bit of time I will see if I can find an authorized service repairman for you.
I read some of the reviews from your area the best for Sub Zero is Toms appliance.
some of the reviews I ve read were not good at all.
In the meantime look in the freezer side....look at the lower back wall...is there frost there?
Also hold the light switch button with the freezer door open,,,is the fan running?
I have already put a call in to Tom's they fixed it before and they are good. You could recommend them to anyone who ever asks. But they have an answering machine and it can take a day to reach them.
I will check the lower back wall of the inside of the refrigerator since it is built in I can not see behind it.. Is that correct.? I do not hear the fan when the two switches are pressed in and the door is open.
Anyway inside the freezer....look at the lower portion of the back wall...Is there
frost on that wall....also the unit is not running?
Ok,,you may need a fan motor.....in the freezer is where all the cold is.
It works like this. The fan in the freezer circulates the air over to the
refrigerator. There is a damper in the refrigerator that opens and closes
as needed. And there is a return in the lower part of the refrigerator that
allows the warmer air to come back to the fan to be cooled.
There are several things that can cause the fan to stop but usually its
a bad motor. I have seen icemakers overflow and the ice stop them.
Also door switches can be bad which allows the fan to come on. If
the door switch is bad this can happen, If you press the door switch
and the fan does nt come on in the freezer side and you see no ice
or frost buildup on the backwall of the freezer there is nt much you
I know this is nt an acceptable answer and I do nt expect to be paid for it, if the
above posts are the case there is nothing I can do that will help... Im so sorry.
HAHAHAHAHA! Thats nice.
Well actually cold flows down. It probably won't generate enough
circulation to keep the food in your refrigerator safe. If you could stick that in a
cooler with the things you want to keep safe it will be ok for a day but no more.
