Sub-Zero Refrigerator Maintenance

Sub-Zero Maintenance with Box Appliance

It is usually quite clear when you require Sub-Zero refrigerator maintenance, but preventative maintenance is always a preferable approach to product failure.

Top Signs You Need Sub-Zero Refrigerator Maintenance

Outside of normal wear, the unit should consistently sound and feel the same. Here is a short list of symptoms to keep an eye out for–it may save you time, money and food.

Sub-Zero Refrigerator compartment:

  1. Consistently warmer cabinet or food temperatures are a sure indicator that a problem exists.
  2. Consistent excessive sweating or moisture on the interior of the refrigerator walls, shelves or food containers.
  3. Premature food spoilage, dairy products that sour before reaching expiration dates, vegetables wilting quickly.
  4. Liquids or vegetables freezing in the fresh food portion of your Sub-Zero.
  5. Any quick changes to normal operation in your unit such as new noises, louder noises, a change in how the door opens or closes.

Sub-Zero Freezer compartment:

  1. Thawing or inability to freeze food in a timely manner is a sure indicator that a problem exists.
  2. Any signs of water, ice build-up, or frost anywhere in the freezer cabinet or on stored food.
  3. If the unit has an icemaker and production has stopped.
  4. Excessive heat coming from the top of the unit or around the mullion surface (the perimeter surface that the door gasket seats against).
  5. Any quick changes to normal operation in your unit such as new noises, louder noises, a change in how the door opens or closes.

If you have noticed any one of these symptoms, especially if they persist, give Box Appliance a call and we can help you diagnose any issue you may be experiencing. Our technicians can help you identify whether or not the issue needs immediate attention or if there is a small adjustment in the unit that can remedy the problem.
