Sub-Zero Repair Costs

Core Issue:

  • Why do sealed system repairs cost so much?
  • The estimate for a sealed system repair is very high, why is that?
  • How are repair costs calculated?
  • How can I find the cost of parts?
  • Sealed System labor rates.


Repair costs can be provided by your local Factory Certified Service company.
  • Costs can vary, but are generally the same throughout a region.
  • Parts costs can vary from the Factory Certified Servicer to the Parts Distributor, as the Servicer would absorb the shipping costs.
  • Parts sold through other retailers can not be guaranteed.
  • Contact a Factory Certified Parts Distributor to order parts.
Sealed System Repair Costs
  • If  a sealed system repair is required, the refrigerant is recovered, the faulty component repaired or replaced, the filter-drier replaced, a vacuum pump used to evacuate any moisture, air and/or contaminants introduced into the system when the system was opened, and finally the system is recharged with the correct amount of new refrigerant.
  • Repair of the sealed system can take anywhere from 45 minutes up to several hours to complete, depending on the nature of the failure.
  • Replacing an evaporator is generally a less time consuming repair.
  • Repairing a contaminated or restricted sealed system is the most complex repair and can take many hours.
  • Special tools and training are required to perform the above repairs; therefore, sealed system repairs are the most costly repair done to any refrigeration product.
