The Sub-Zero Freezer brand was founded in Madison Wisconsin by Westye F. Bakke in 1945. He built the first free standing freezer in the basement of his home in 1943. In March of 2000 the Sub-Zero Freezer Company acquired the Wolf brand name. The Sub-Zero Freezer is now in its third generation of family ownership and management. The brand is consistently modifying their product line to meet and exceed their customer’s expectations.

Sub-Zero Wine Storage Repair Issues

There are several common issues that can occur with your Sub-Zero wine preservation product. A few signs that you may need to call a Sub-Zero wine storage repair person are when the service light is on, no lights are on or the unit wont cool, condensation forms outside of the unit, when the unit is expelling high temperatures, or when it runs excessively.

Sub-Zero wine storage repair can be either complex or simple. If you encounter a problem with your product and are not sure what to do you should consult your user’s manual. If you don’t find your user’s manual helpful then you should consult a certified professional. Don’t attempt to resolve the problem yourself unless you are skilled and certified to do so. You should leave all major Sub-Zero wine storage repairs to a certified factory service man.


Sub-Zero Wine Storage Repair

Where there is a problem there is a solution. If the service light flashes in the control panel display you should verify that your condenser is clean. If you check the condenser and it is clean then you should turn the unit off at the control panel and then back on again. If the service light indicator continues to flash you should contact a Sub-Zero wine cooler repair person for service.

If there are no interior lights on in your unit you should verify that the power is on. Next, you should verify that the unit is getting electrical power and that the home circuit breaker is on. There is also a possibility that the cabinet lighting may need to be replaced. If this is the case contact a Sub-Zero repair for further assistance. If the unit is not cooling properly you should check to see if a door was left ajar. If a door has been left ajar after an hour the lights would automatically be disabled in order to eliminate excess heat.

When condensation forms outside of the unit it could mean that your condenser needs to be cleaned. If you find that the condenser is clean then you should verify several other things before calling a repairman. First, you should verify that the unit door is closing properly. If the door is not closing properly then you should check the hinges. Second, you should verify that the door has not been left ajar. If the door has been left ajar close it. Third, you should verify that the door gasket does not have rips or tears in it. If it does, you should immediately contact a Sub-Zero factory certified service technician.

If for some reason the unit is expelling high temperatures or is running excessively you should check the following things: that the condenser is clean, the door is closing properly, the door has not been left ajar, the ambient temperature has not increased which can cause the compressor to run longer, or that the unit is in showroom mode. (Consult your user’s manual to determine how to reset the ambient temperature. If the unit is in showroom mode consult your user’s manual to take it out of this mode or contact your local factory certified technician.)
