Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Ice maker won't stop dripping

Folks - have a Sub Zero 650 - ice maker won't stop dripping. Not a rapid drip just slow and steady - enough eventually to freeze all the ice in the tray together. Any suggestions - removed the cover plate to the maker and found instructions inside - indicate the model is "M1"

Will lowering the water fill switch do anything?

Thanks in advance for the help.

The ice maker can on hard water lime up to the point that the water will wick out a bit just after filling. The Ice maker needs to be cleaned or replaced.

If your i/m is dripping you most likely have a crack in the ice mold, you should replace the ice maker.

Sub zero 650 slow ice maker


Hi Maureen,

Your sub-zero 650 should produce about 8 cubes every 2 hours. It sounds like the heater beneath the ice maker may be wearing out. Ice makers use a heating mechanism to warm the cubes in the mold and force them to easily eject. If the heater is failing in the back slot, it could cause the ice cube to get stuck. If this is the case, you usually need to replace the part or the entire ice maker.

It is also possible the mechanism isn't properly aligned. You could try adjusting it.

You can find two manual on FixYa here: http://www.fixya.com/support/p24667-sub_zero_650_o_bottom_freezer

Otherwise, I suggest contacting their customer service or a technician: http://www.subzero-wolf.com/contact-and-support/index.aspx

Best of Luck!

Sub Zero 650 won't stop making ice


The arm activator is wire if you raise it up it should stop making ice. It sounds as if your stop may have broke. This would cause a continuous ice flow

Good day,
No, a new water valve should solve that problem. The diaphram in the valve is not completely closing.
Very common problem.

Ice maker leaking inside freezer compartment, water dripping down from unit


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Our model 532 keeps over filling the ice maker causing a build up on the back and down all of the drawer. We can turn it off and thaw the entire box and the water keeps filling the tray even though the ice...


The fill valve for the ice maker could be stuck partially open and dripping into the ice maker. If this is the case shut off the water line to the ice maker and if the water stops you will need to replace the ice maker fill vavle

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 532 ice maker


When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.
