I just got the info that the model Sub Zero 601f has a compressor of 1/2 hp.

Which answer is correct?

Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
1/2 HP is pretty large for a home unit, but SZ usually rates there compressors by BTU

I am still in doubt which answer is correct! 1/2 hp or 1/3 hp
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
SubZero may have put a larger compressor in some of the freezer only models, they use serial number breaks to look up parts. What are you trying to ascertain?
