Once you buy a Sub Zero Refrigerator, you’ll likely have a few questions – such as when you should perform the first maintenance service or have it scheduled. The manufacturer recommends that the condenser is cleaned at least every six months, but there are other maintenance steps you can take that will help keep your refrigerator running as long as possible.
Schedule Sub Zero Condenser Cleaning Starting Six Months from the Date of Installation
It is wise to set up a schedule for condenser cleaning and maintenance starting six months after you have the unit installed. If you have this service from the very beginning, you will form the habit and be more likely to continue getting the service. At American Appliance Repair, we can schedule in advance and alert you to upcoming cleaning and maintenance needs.
Remove Ice from Bins Every One to Two Weeks in Most Cases
To prevent your ice from caking up into one large pile of ice, or the ice from taking on a bad flavor, you should be removing the ice from your bins every one to two weeks. There is one main exception to this rule: If you use enough ice that you are regularly emptying the tray from merely using it, then you may need to empty the trays less frequently.
Replace the Air Filter Yearly
It is wise to replace the air filter in your refrigerator at least once per year. Your unit has a sensor that will alert you when it is time for the filter to be replaced, or you can work with American Appliance Repair, and we can ensure you always have a fresh filter.
Replace the Water Filter Yearly
Likewise, your water filter should be replaced yearly. This helps prevent bad odors or flavors from getting into your ice or seeping into your food and beverages. Your unit should have a sensor that tells you when it is time to replace the water filter, but we can help with this too.
The Shelves Should Be Wiped Down as Needed but At Least Every Three Months
As the owner of a Sub Zero refrigerator, you should do your best to keep it clean. If you see a spill or stain, take care of it right away. At the very least, give the unit a deep cleaning every three months to assure that everything is in good shape and clean.
