First press and hold the lock button for about five seconds. If that doesn't help unplug the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. It may be that you have an electronc gliche then and if you break the circuit by unplugging the refrigerator (you can also trip the circuit breaker that controls the refrigerator, if that is more accessible than the plug) it should reset. if not you may have a more serious problem with an electronic control. Good luck, hope this helps.

Water has stopped flowing to the ice maker but is ok to the door fountain. hoses appear to be ok.


sounds like you ice maker is shut off. There should be a switch next to ice maker to turn back on. Also look for a lock out feature for the ice maker. It could also be a sticking water solenoid to allow water to enter tray.

Red lock light is on below ice and water dispenser. How do I turn it off so I can get ice and water?


Does this model have a light button? (I know the 685 and the 695 do.) If it does, press and hold the Light button until all the LEDs light up once. This takes about 5 seconds. (Repeating the process will reenable the lock.)

I hope this helps.

How do I shut off the ice and water feature on a model mzd2766ge? The house I'm moving into is not plumbed for it yet. Thank you for your help.


Hello. All you need to do is to raise the wire arm inside the ice maker, and above the ice bin. It will lock in the up position which turns this feature off. J.

How do I unlock the water function? My daughter put the lock on the water feature and I can't unlock it.


Usually you just press and hold the lock key for 3 seconds until the "lock" light goes out. If the ice is still working, it is not the lock mode activated, but possibly a frozen water reservoir or maybe a defective fill valve.

NO ICE


Check this first,
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
ice and water dispensers. To turn off the ice maker, see “Ice
Maker & Storage Bin.”
 Press and hold LOCKOUT for 3 seconds to lock the
dispenser.
 Press and hold LOCKOUT a second time to unlock the dispenser.
Let me know if this helped, Sea Breeze

Ice and water won't come out dispenser


here is link to your owners manual subzero.com
and here are instructions for using the lock feature..

LOCK For Models 685 and 695, the lock feature is used to prevent unintended ice and water dispensing. When the dispenser is locked, all key pads on the glasswell are deactivated to allow cleaning or to prevent small children from using the dispenser. To activate the lock feature, hold down the LIGHT key pad on the glasswell until the key pad lights flash once and the red LOCK icon is illuminated (approximately five seconds). The lights will remain in the state they were in before the lock feature was activated. To deactivate the lock feature, hold down the LIGHT key pad until the key pad lights flash once and the red LOCK icon is no longer illuminated (approximately five seconds). The lights will remain in the state they were in before the lock feature was deactivated.

Ice maker not getting water after changing filter


Check the following:
 Is the freezer door closed completely?
 Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
 Is there ice in the storage bin?
 Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
 Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
 Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
cubes produced by the current ice maker.
 Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket?
Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
bin.
 Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
ice?
Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
“crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
 Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.

The ON/OFF switch is located on the top right side of the freezer
compartment.
To turn the ice maker on, slide the control to the ON (left) position.
To manually turn the ice maker off, slide the control to the OFF
(right) position.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker
sensors will automatically stop ice production, but the control will
remain in the ON (left) position

REMEMBER:
 Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
 The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained

The Dispenser Lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.
Style 1: Press the LOCK BUTTON to lock the dispenser. Press the
UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.
Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the
dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to
unlock the dispenser.
