Just moved in...have a sub zero 650.... There is a Vacuum Condensor flashing on the temp display. What to do?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Sub-Zero is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 10 years...It says Sub Zero. Dual Refrideration System 650

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends...what needs to be done?

The vacuum condenser means you will need to take a vacuum and vacuum the condenser coil on the unit .

This error code shows up when the condenser coil has gotten too hot.

If you just moved in have you had the door open moving in and out of the home?

Moved in in December, alert just came up. The condenser is on the top of the unit, behind a panel...how does the panel come off?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

And the upper condenser compartment panel just lift up and out .
