Customer Question

I've got a sub zero 550 from 1994. The compressor fan is constantly running, which I believe is normal for this model. Later model 550s have a feature where the fan only runs when the compressor needs cooling. I've read online that some technicians can make this modification. What part do I need to make the upgrade?

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.

Can you get at the condenser relay on the unit? There are 5 wires to it.
