Sub-Zero Refrigerator Error Codes

Sub-Zero Refrigerator Error Code: EC 85

Sub-Zero refrigerator fault code EC 85 signals an overpressure on the compressor. This may be caused by a low fluid level, leading to extended run times and excessive heat buildup.

Low Refrigerant Levels

At the heart of EC 85 lies a critical factor – low refrigerant levels. Refrigerant is the lifeblood of your Sub-Zero refrigerator, essential for efficient heat exchange and temperature control. When these levels dwindle, your compressor faces an uphill battle, running longer and harder to uphold the desired coldness.

What Can You Do?

  1. Refrigerant Level Check: It’s a good idea to have a professional technician inspect and adjust the refrigerant levels. This should only be done by experienced hands, as the process involves handling refrigerants safely and precisely.
  2. Consult a Sub-Zero Repair Expert: Given the intricate nature of refrigerant-related matters, reaching out to a Sub-Zero repair specialist is often the most prudent choice. These experts possess the knowledge, tools, and expertise needed to diagnose and rectify EC 85, ensuring your refrigerator operates at peak performance.
