No. There is, however, a drain hole in the back center that tends to get plugged. Remove the lower two drawers and see if it is plugged. It drains to a pan under the unitand behind the kickpanel

Check the drain channel at the rear of the fridge just above the crisper drawers and blow through the drain hole with a drinking straw to clear it.

My 12 year old subzero fridge (650) is not getting cold. this morning i discovered ice behind the fresh food drawer, removed it, it was running fine, temp 35. now tonight the temp is 51. freezer is fine....


Is it flashing vacuum condenser? Ice behind the crisper drawer shouldn't effect the temp. What is it set at? You can go to www.subzerospecialists.com and click on Tech Help for additional info.

I have a Model 550 SubZero Refrigerator. I have ice build up on the lowere left rear interior wall just above the criper drawers. Can you advise on cause and fix?


Check your door and door gasket. Make sure it has a tight seal. The ice is from air and moisture getting in on the left side.
I hope this helps. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

Puddles on top shelf and under crisper drawers


This is not a major repair and also a very common problem. You will need to turn unit off and remove everything from inside the freezer. After this remove the back panel of the freezer and you will see ice built up at the bottom of the coils. You will have to remove all this ice and clear the defrost drain trough and tube. After the ice is removed you will see the defrost drain located about midways. Use a hair dryer to melt this then take a cup of very very very hot water and pour a little in the tube. Let stand for 5 minutes then dry it up real good and repeat. Do this till the drain clears and water flows freely. Then reassemble and you are good to go.

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.
