Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I am getting an ice buildup behind the vegetable and fruit draws with water leakage running out above the bottom freezer door. Behind the produce draws, on the back of the refrig. are 2 angled down tracks meant to catch water and direct it to a small ribbed plastic tube that seems to extend to the floor pan. Recently after chipping away the ice in the refrig, I noticed that that tube was frozen solid. I poured hot water throught it until it was opened and I didn't have the problem for a few days. Then the situation reoccured. Obviously, the water is condensing in the track and because the tube is frozen the water is overflowing and freezing. Doors seal fine. Can you help?
Omg I have this problem too...continually thawing the drain tube and I was going to replace the heat tube..rust too where is pours over the vegetable drawer-

Same problem. had a coil installed about a year ago and it worked for a while. now, the problem is back :0 I guess I will have to put a reminder on the calendar to use a hair dryer every couple of weeks and NOT put veggies in the veggie drawer. Maybe Juice boxes?

I think the tube is clogged with gunk. Had the same problem and it recurs every 2-3 years. Blow the tube out with compressed air. from inside the refrigerator at the drain port. Insert the air compressor wand in the port and blow in the compressed air.

Seems to be a common problem with these units. You can get a drain tube heater ( got mine from an online refrigerator parts distributor), though may not totally solve problem. Some suggest running a copper wire through tube - supposed to conduct just enough heat to keep tube from freezing.
