Question about Refrigerators
14 year old Sub-Zero 550. The tube is in the back of the refrig compartment, starts just above the vegetable crispers and runs down the back of the freezer compartment down into the drainage pan.
I cleared the tube with alcohol, it clogges up again within 2-3 days. It is clearly ice, not debris. Tried several times and it ices up again.
I heard one possible solution: insert a copper wire down the tube and leave it in, so it transfers heat up the tube. But, not sure where to attach it to so that it would pick up the heat. Would this work? Is there another solution?
the tube that you are talking about is the water line and it runs all the way to the icemaker. not sure about the copper line and it's also not a good idea, as cooper conducts electricity and you may damage your heat exchanger or even worse your compressor. i would have a technician come and take a look at this one. the mfg. should have a water line freeze kit available to remedy this problem.
