SOURCE: subzero 550 water drain in refrigerator section backs up

The problem is that the water freezes in the drain, either because the door is not sealing good, it's open too often or there is mold in the catching tray and tube. Best solution is to take a turkey baster (pump), disconnect the flexible tube from the tray, by pulling down, take a large cup with very hot water mixed with a spoon or 2 of Clorox, fill the baster with that mixture and pump it on the drain tube. You have to do it several times, water will come out, but do it until you hear a "woosh" sound and the water goes freely on the drain. Also spill some of that mixture in the tray so it kills the mold.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Although my sub zero 642 is holding the

it's condensate from the evaporator coils. when the humidity collects on the coils, it should drain into a pan under the fridge that gets evaporated from the hot-side line. check to see if the condensate tube from the coils is still in the pan.

SOURCE: Subzero model #561, freezer is warm, water leak

Check to see if the freezer fan is running. Push in the two switches at the top. The light should go out and if the freezer is powered on the fan should come on. The icemaker runs on temperature so no cold means no ice. Check for ice build up around the evaporator. Could be a defrost issue or a sealed system problem. As for the water, is it the floor of the unit or the floor of the house? Is the drippan in place or sitting on the floor? Also check the condenser fan motor. If this is all greek to you, you should probably call a factory authorized servicer.

SOURCE: Sub Zero 642 side by side stainless steel leaks water from right

remove the crisper drawers and you will see a drain trough and a drain line . One or both is most likely blocked. If you pull the drain line off the trough usually you can clear it with a turkey baster filled with hot water

Does a refrigerant leak mean we must replace the evaporator of our subzero 642 side by side?


Hi,

Thank you for all this important information. Your units average life span is or can be up to 30 years, with this being say. The rule of freon is 5% less in a 12 month period is allowed, over that it this unit must be fixed, charging a leaking unit with out a plan to fix is against EPA guidelines. Now Verify the age of this unit, if 12 years or younger the parts are covered under factory warranty. You can call the factory to verify this if you like. Back to your question, yes the evaporator is most likely the reason of less freon. I personally change 4 to 5 a month during this time of year. Your evaporator part number is 4204430 and a drier 7006964 is needed also. Call subzero for assistance if you like. Good Luck, remember your unit was and investment for this is just a maintenance issue after about 10 years.

LCD panel and lights not working


On your Sub-Zero 642 Your display will not work unless your refrigerator lights work.
1st. Make sure your light bulbs are good.
2nd. Check your refrigerator door light switch.
3rd. The subzero uses a thermal overload to kill your lights if the door is left open to long.

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