The manufacturer recommends that Sub Zero owners clean their condenser every three to six months. This can be done by the homeowner or by a professional appliance repair and maintenance company. While this is the only step that the manufacturer recommends, other maintenance steps can help these units last as long as possible.
The Importance of Regular Condenser Cleaning
When you choose to have your condenser cleaned on the schedule the manufacturer recommends, you can enjoy several benefits. First, it saves wear and tear on the condenser – which saves wear and tear on the refrigerator as a whole. Second, it saves electricity. If you want your Sub Zero refrigerator to run as effectively as possible, the best thing you can do is to have your condenser cleaned every six months.
Maintenance Can Help Sub Zero Appliances Live Up to Their Potential
Sub-Zero refrigerators are indeed known as reliable, virtually trouble-free options that have long lifespans. However, even with their high-quality parts and assembly, regular maintenance can help them last as long as possible – and help them run as efficiently as possible.
Empty the Ice Trays Every Two Weeks Unless You Use Ice Regularly
If your Sub Zero has an ice maker in it, you may need to empty the ice tray every week or two – it all depends on how often you use the ice. If you use it daily, then this may not be needed – you can clean it once a month or any time that your ice is not used for more than a week or two. However, if you use it just once or twice a week, emptying the ice tray helps prevent the ice from clumping and developing a stale taste.
Change the Air and Water Filters Yearly
Depending on the type of Sub Zero you have, your maintenance may involve charging the air and/or water filter. If you have these filters, then they should be replaced at least yearly. There is a digital readout on your unit that will tell you when it is time to change them, or you can count on American Appliance Repair to create a maintenance schedule that for this.
Do Your Own Deep Cleaning Regularly
In addition to the maintenance you need from your local appliance repair company, it is also wise to do your own maintenance. This should including thoroughly cleaning out the shelves. Remember that any spills or debris that are left can end up causing odors and bad flavors in the foods and beverages you store in your refrigerator.
