Sub Zero Tips

When you need to repair your sub zero refrigerator, you might need to spend some money. But if you maintain your unit periodically, you can save yourself a lot of these costs. Because we highly value you as a customer and care about your experience here at AmeriPro Appliance Repair, we put together a list of good preventative practices to preserve the life of your refrigerator units. This will not only save you money but increase the length of time you can use your fridge.

Storing Food in Your Sub ZeroSub Zero Repair and Maintenance

  • Set the temperature to your sub-zero refrigerator to 40 degrees Fahrenheit before you begin to store food in your unit.
  • Be very careful not to mix food with these specific foods: products made from chicken, any raw meet, or fish. This can contaminate other foods if they drip onto them.

Cleaning the Exterior of your Sub Zero

  • There is one simple way to clean the outside of your unit. Simply use a soft, non-abrasive stainless steel product. Then apply the cleaner with a cloth totally free of lint. Make sure it is soft as well.
  • Light soap mixed with water finishes cleaning the steel well.

It is essential to maintain the luster of your refrigerator to make its appearance look as clean as possible. Focus on lighting to do this. You can, for example, wipe down the fridge lightly. Use a small microfiber towel with some water. Then apply polishing chamois to finish the job. For the best possible results, the cloth should be touching as much as possible the steel surface.

Cleaning the inside of your Sub Zero

To wash the surface on the interior of your refrigerator along with any removable parts, use slightly warm water, baking soda, and soap. Next, rinse and dry off the solution but absolutely don’t use vinegar because it can damage the parts. Also make sure not to wet the lights by accident nor the display panel nor control center.

How to clean the glasswell

A mixture of baking soda, soap, and water, depending on which model is your unit, works great. Simply clean up any dripping after having removed the water grill, which dispenses.

Cleaning the Condenser

Every three to six months or so, clean the condenser, which can be found behind the grill. Remove the grill when you locate it and use a soft bristle brush. Vacuum lint and dust inside the condenser.

How to clean the ice chute on a Sub Zero

You definitely need to maintain the ice chute, which looks like a clear plastic house, with a regular cleaning as well. The purpose of the chute is to funnel ice from the freezer to the glass well ice dispenser located inside the door. Remove the adjacent shelves to clean the ice chute. Unscrew the crew found in the bottom left part of the side panel. When you see the ice chute, take the side over before pressing the two locking tabs. This will permit you to pull the part up.
