Question about Refrigerators

Water puddles under the drawers

I have a 501-R Sub-Zero refrigerator only (no ice maker or water supply) and water puddles under the drawers. I have to sponge up the water (about a pint every 2 or 3 weeks) and am looking for the cause and a solution for the problem.

You have a blocked defrost drain look at item 56  in this picture. you need to clear this drain either with hot water or clear ice that may have accumulated in the trough. to me it looks as if there is possibly a cover over this area so you will need to remove drawers and shelves to get to it. message me back here with any comments or questions.. You can fix this yourself!! thanks Peyton water puddles under the drawers - 10058779-00002.png

Sub Zero 700 TC with two freezer drawers on bottom. Ice sheet is forming on the bottom below the drawers and causing the drawer to stick. I have defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer and thought this...


Hi,

How are the ice cubes? Are they normal size or hollow? I was wondering if some of the water was not making it into the ice maker and causing this issue. Is there any frosting issue not mentioned? Any water droplets on or around the back wall of the unit (inside)? I am a service tech certified and would like to know more about this issue. Have you cleared the drain completely, meaning after you de-iced unit, did you use water to verify the drain was cleared?

I you like to know more, so I can direct you in solving this issue.

try replace the cheapest part first.( vater valve). you only need 2 components to make ice. water valve and ice maker.is simple and easy water valve located in the bottom part of the unit. remove the kick plate. left side. and color blue. ice maker inside the freezer. (DISCONECT POWER BEFORE SERVICE. ALSO TURN WATER SUPPLY OFF.) try main box , garage. and water meter outside your house. good luck

Heavy water leak in basement under fridge


Has this fridge got an ice maker???
Because ice makers require a water supply to make ice.
This could be where your water is coming from.

Cannot get ice drawer back on the track 500 series


Unfortunately, you need defrost freezer - put freezer thermostat on OFF. You possibly got broken ice tray or damaged sliders.Or leak in ice maker area. Till you defrost that compartment - no chance to pull tray out.

ICE MAKER SUB ZERO REFIGERATOR


Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at repairclinic.com. logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.
