Sub-Zero Maintenance Service

Sub-Zero refrigerators are well known for their reliable, trouble-free performance. MD Appliance offers professional Sub-Zero Maintenance Service in San Diego CA. There are a few tips to keep your Sub-Zero in tip-top shape for years to come.

- Condenser Cleaning

The most important Sub-Zero maintenance service is a regular condenser cleaning. This will protect compressors of overheating and will prolong it's life. You can do it yourself but it is important to do it correctly. If you don’t you might damage the condenser fins. - How to clean your Sub-Zero condenser? With the soft brush first and then with vacuum cleaner, remove the dust build-up. Move the brush and the vacuum cleaner up-down, into direction of the condenser fins to avoid bending them. If you would rather a professional handle the job call MD Appliance LLC and we will do it for you. We recommend scheduling a condenser cleaning about once a year in the spring time.

- Ice Maker Maintenance

If you don’t use ice from the ice maker regularly, it’s a good idea to empty the ice tray once every week to prevent the ice from clumping and tasting stale. If you use ice frequently, just clean the unit once a month or whenever it sits for a long period of time.

- Air and Water Filter Replacement

Change the air and water filter at least once a year. Don’t worry about trying to remember this because the digital readout on the unit will notify you when it is time to change them!

- Cleaning the Inside of your Sub-Zero

It’s a good idea to thoroughly clean the inside of the refrigerator periodically. Spills and debris can cause odor and cause bad flavors in some of your fresh and cooked foods.

Bosch Dishwasher Troubleshooting

This article explains simple Bosch Dishwasher Troubleshooting procedures you can do in your home before you call for professional service. Bosch is number one manufacturer of the high-end dishwashers that give you the choice of flexibility, cycle options, and quiet operation. But even the best dishwashers are not perfect. When your Bosch dishwasher stops working, there are few steps you can do to troubleshoot and possible solve the problems.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning dishes:

    Make sure that the dishwasher is filling up with water. Also, check for clogged spray arms, drain filter and the circulation pump operations. One of the most common problems is the white residue on the dishes after the dishes being washed. This is due to the lack of phosphates in dishwasher detergents, and simply changing the detergent might solve this problem.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not draining:

    If your Bosch dishwasher experience the drain issue it will display E24 or E25 error. First thing to do is to check for the clogged air gap. The air gap provides back-flow prevention for an installed dishwasher. To clean it, simply remove the top of the air gap and clean the accumulated debris. If the problem persist, you might have an issue with the clogged drain hose or failed  drain pump. In that case you should look for Bosch Dishwasher Service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is making noise:

    The most common cause will be the accumulated water in the dishwasher base that activates the safety switch. The drain pump will run all the time and the program can not be switched off. The display will usually show errors such as E15 or E17.  If you don't see the obvious reason for the water leak in to the base, call for service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not dispensing soap:

    If your Bosch dishwasher is not spraying water the soap will not dissolve. Check for the clogged spray arms, drain filter and for the circulation pump operation. If your detergent dispenser will not open it's either due to faulty dispenser or the faulty heather circuit. In any case you should call for service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is overflowing:

    Your dishwasher might overfill with water even if it is not in use.  This is due to the faulty water inlet valve. The solenoid part of the valve fails to shut off and  the water keeps entering the dishwasher. The only way to stop the water filling up your dishwasher is to find the water supply shut off valve and to turn the water supply off. The shut off valve is usually under the kitchen main sink. To replace the valve you will need to call Bosch dishwasher professional service.
If you're not certain that you can safely perform these simple troubleshooting steps our advice is to call for Bosch Dishwasher Service.

  • Replace the refrigerator door gaskets due to damages such as tears, cracks, gaps etc.
  • The inside of the refrigerator is overloaded with food. The items in your fridge could be blocking the air vent. Because of that cold air will not circulate properly.  That will cause temperature problems as well.
  • The refrigerator is located in either too hot or too cold  outside environment . The outside temperature can affect refrigerator proper operation. As a result that will cause the refrigerator to work longer and harder. 
  • The evaporator fan motor might stop working. As a result there will be no cold air circulation inside the unit. Temperature will rise and the food will spoil. If so replace the evaporator fan or call our professional service.
  • The condenser fan motor stops working or starts making noise. Consequently that will overheat the compressor due to lack of the cooling airflow. If so replace the condenser fan motor or contact our service department.

  • Ice maker is not making ice. First make sure that the it's turned on. Then check the water supply shut-off valve.

If you experience problem with a Miele dishwasher, many of those problems may be resolved by yourself without the need for a technician. Manufacturer suggests you to conduct a series of troubleshooting procedures in attempt to solve minor problems before you spend money by calling out a service repair technician. The troubleshooting steps are relatively simple.

I means that program is interrupted because there is the problem with the unit. Some models with the digital display will show the error code but on all other models you need to perform diagnostics in order to read the error.
  2. Not draining or slow drain. If your Miele dishwasher is not draining, clean the triple filter, air gap and non-return valve. Examine the drain hose for clogs or kinks. 
  3. Not filling with water. In most cases the the restrictor filter inside the water proof system valve is plugged and needs to be cleaned. It is possible that the water proof system is also defective and needs to be replaced.
