Should I Repair or Replace My Refrigerator?
Sub-Zero fridges have exceptional design, insulation, and cooling systems so that temperature stays accurate within one degree of their setting. Sub-Zero fridges also use separate compressors and evaporators for the refrigerator and freezer components, which means no air gets shared between the two.
Some of the most common reasons for Sub-Zero fridge repairs are:
- Cooling failures
- Leaking water
- Vacuum condenser light on
More often than not, cooling failures are due to the condenser or evaporator fan motor failing. There can also be a faulty start relay.
Leaking water is typically caused by a faulty water inlet valve, leaky water tank assembly, or cracked water filter housing.
If the vacuum condenser light comes on, it can indicate that your refrigerator is working overtime, or harder than it should be. If the light comes on, the first step is to check the cleanliness of your fridge’s condenser coils. For proper fridge maintenance, coils should be cleaned every six months.

Should I Repair or Replace My Refrigerator That Is 10 Years Old?
While a Sub-Zero refrigerator should last between 10 and 13 years, some have been known to last 50 years. It all depends on the shape its in and whether or not it’s been well maintained.
As a rule of thumb, if a refrigerator is over 10 years old and is in constant need of repairs, it might be time for a new fridge. However, Sub-Zero fridges can last much longer, as long as they are well-maintained. If breakdowns have occurred with the installation of genuine factory Sub-Zero parts along the line, there should be no reason to buy new.
