Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
There is a small trickle of water which appears to leak from a collection pan at the top of the freezer compartment. The pan drains to the right of the compartment and appears to go through the wall of the freezer. Where the pan meets the wall of the compartment it appears that the caulk has failed and the water that trickles down the inside wall of the freezer, freezes on the tracks of the drawer and makes a general mess. Does it seem like I am going in the right direction? Is there a special caulk to use that will not fail in the freezing temps?
Silicone bath/shower sealant should work, the one that smells like vinegar. Also known as RTV. Just make sure the area is dry, clean and free of old caulk. It'll need to be at room temperature to set properly for a few hours. I have used this sealant on things before that went as low as -50C. Preperation is the key though.

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
