We have a sub zero 632 approx 7 years old. Over past few days has been leaking water out of the front right and left corner areas on to the floor. Leaking is spuratic. Seems to be increasing each day. Any ideas?
Had the same problem on the same model (632). Turned out to be a plugged drain tube on the condensate collection trough located on back wall of the refrigerator. Simply pull out the crisper drawer (the drawer below the lowest shelf) and you'll bee the trough. The drip tube can easily be plugged by a vegetable leak or grape, etc which had fallen into this trough. Hope its as simple for you as for us.
The water fill hose is out of place and is pouring water into the ice bucket instead of the ice tray. Unfortunately the solution requires that you disassemble the front of the icemaker. You can see the fill tube on the right if it is not in the proper position it may be repositioned. It may also need to be replaced if it is broken or deteriorated. Worked for me.

It does appear that your side by side refrigerator has an ice maker, so that rules out any extra water from a faulty valve. I think the seal on your freezer door may be broken/torn. Usually there is no water (per se) in the freezer, but as things thaw, or as the door is opened it can create condensation that leaks. The freezer will retain cool for a while but eventually things will thaw out and water will leak. Please check the thermostat for the freezer, and make sure there are no containers leaking in the fridge portion. Good luck.
The sub zeros I have worked on have a compressor for each side. Is your fan blowing. You may have a defrost timer or heater. Possible low on gas but thats not very likely the sub zeros are made very well. Check to see if fan is blowing. Check condensor coils on top to see if they are clean. Check to see if your condensor fan is blowing. These are just possoble problem you can check if every thing looks good. Call a service tech ask for free estimate on repairs. Rus
We have the same SubZero unit and the water leak is the ice maker line or the pan that catches condensation. If you unscrew the panel at the bottom, you will be able to take the pan out and see if the water is from there. If it is from the ice maker line (which was plastic on ours), you should fix this right away as we didn't and we ended up having a $10,000 flood that ruined our hardwood floors. Also, the increased motor noise happened to us as well, but when we had the motor replaced, it is not much quieter.
