Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
This seems to happen only in the summer--- not the winter; the refrigerator also seems to be "on" excessively. Could this be faulty gaskets with condensation from humid air in the summer rather than a defrost drain problem causing the water to drip from the ends of the freezer drawer bottom in summer only ? Purchased in 1994. A drain heater was installed years ago. Not sure if it still works. Would also like to replace the frig light switch but can't figure out the access.
A faulty door gasket will definitely cause excessive condensate and running time. There is also a door heating system which is from heated refrigerant circulating around the area where door gasket meets cabinet. You should be able to feel a certain amount of warmth in this area. If not there could be condensation again from cold leaking out of the gasket and being formed on the actual cabinet.

This problem seems to be two sided. A refrigerator
defrost it is supposed to take the water from defrost down a pipe located
behind the freezer rear wall to a pan below the refrigerator where there is a
fan blowing warm air over the water to evaporate back into your home or
business. If that drain is blocked your refrigerator will accumulate a large
block of ice and frost behind the rear panel of freezer and temperatures will
warm considerably in fresh food compartment and freezer. Here is one site I want you to read over=> Leaking Refrigerators Just What may Be Happening and here=> Leaking Refrigerators here is a link to a service manual=> LFX25960xx Service Manual Let
me know if this service manual is close enough to your model number. At this point I am looking for air blockage behind the rear panel of freezer. If air is being blocked by ice and frost you can use a hair drier to help speed you up while melting ice. If drain is blocked use whatever you can to open the drain line mentions on the links I sent you to and let me know what is found, Thanks Sea Breeze
