Sub-Zero Refrigerator Won’t Turn Off, Condenser Fan Runs Continuously

Many times, when a condenser fan doesn’t shut off, it means your fridge is running non-stop. However, on some designs, the condenser fan is hard wired to run all the time.

Liberty Appliance has come up with a solution that fixes the issue with the older Sub-Zero refrigerators running their condenser fan all the time. Our Electrical Engineer has put together a simple redesign kit that only runs the condenser fan when it is needed.
