Sub-Zero Refrigerator Freezer Error Codes – How to fix? by HoustonAuthorizedRepair.com 

Is your Sub-Zero refrigerator displaying an error code? Sub-Zero refrigerators have built in diagnostic systems. If your refrigerator finds, sees, or detects a fault or error in the system, it will show an error or fault code. The error code will display either inside the refrigerator where the temp controls are or where the usual numbers are on the display screen. When an error code is displayed, your refrigerator is telling you a specific fault. If the error or fault is not fixable by you, it will require a repair technician.

here are many different model numbers of Sub-Zero refrigerators with digital displays so if you see an error code write down what is flashing or displaying. Don’t pull the power from the fridge if it shows an error code. If you pull the power plug it will erase the fault code.
