Ice maker in Sub Zero 642

We just purchased a home with a Sub Zero 642 refrigerator.  The previous owners did not leave a manuel for the frig.  The problem is the ice maker.  It is working fine but the drawer is titled and spills ice all over the freezer.  It seems to be missing a part? or isn't in correct position (it tilts down and has no support underneath)?  Is there a diagram of the freezer showing all the parts and how to insert in freezer?

Call the factory at 800-222-7820 for the manual. It souns like you are missing one or two screws. Pull the ice tray out and lift it up about an inch and it should release. Take a look at the ice maker and there are two supports that both need to have screws on them. There is also a third underneath on some models. Insert the screws and you should be fine.

Sub Zero model 632 Icemaker shutoff arm stuck in the up position. No water in ice tray. Tried turning frig off for 30 seconds, no luck. Checked water supply, it's good. Metal fill tube not...


The shut off arm is in up position. This is the off position for the ice make. Try pulling the down to the first level this will engage the micro switch to start the ice maker. Also, behind the ice maker is a 4 wire plug remove the plug and see if there were some electrical arcing. But first before removing the ice make plug--Please unplug the refrigerator first before work on the ice maker. stewbison

I have sub zero 642 and my techinician says that I need a ice make valve replacement. He says it costs $495, does that seem accurate?


Sub-Zero a hallowed name in refrigeration, and the 642 side-by-side refrigerator/freezer unit is a landmark Yeah, it's that impressive. Dual refrigeration uses two compressors and three evaporators, I can tell you to never expect less than $300 for calling anyone to your home!

Our ice maker makes a little ice , and it doesn't drop. What is wrong with that? Also the house was built in 2005, but the previous owner hasn't live here. How come it can be that? Thanks


Turning the fridge temp down a degree or two will create more ice and at a faster pace. It usually takes a few hours to notice the increase in ice production.

Water Leaks from Ice Maker of Sub-Zero 642


Sounds like the water inlet valve to icemaker is leaking - not closing completely after filling the tray. Rare, but possible. Prove it by shutting off icemaker arm or switch. If that is the cause, the drip will continue.
If dripping stops when I/M is off, then it is ice blockage in I/M fill tube and or diverter funnel at end of ice tray. Remove I/M, clean ice from both, and re-assemble.
Replacing that valve (water supply to refrig connects to it in the back) should solve it.

Sub-Zero 642 ice maker


When the drawer is opened, trhe "full arm" swings up and out of the way. When the drawer is pushed back closed, the arm should swing back down. If it is unobstructed, the icemaker should make ice.

One thing to try is with the ice tray removed, push the plate (that holds the ice tray) back into the freezer. Lift the full arm up and down. It should easily move and you should be able to hear a slight "click" when moving up/down. If not, you might have a bad switch in the ice maker unit...replacement time.

Sub-Zero service manual


Here is a link to the error codes. If there is a fault condition these should be flashing on the display:

http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/06/29/error-codes-for-the-sub-zero-600-series-refrigerators/

One this to try is a hard reset: unplug and wait for a few minutes and re-plug back in. Sometime this resets the service condition and will then display the error codes.

Ice is displayed when the ice maker is turned on. Press the ice on/off and it should turn off.
