Sub Zero Frezzer drawer

A few days ago I noticed my sub zero kept making ice and the ice tray was over flowing. I opened up the area took out the ice tray and noticed the plastic arm that regulates when to stop making ice was in the bottom of the freezer area looks like it fell off not broken. How do I put it back on it looks like it goes on the wire that goes above the tray. I have looked in sub zero manuals but dosen't say or show how to re-attach this part.

Re: Sub Zero Frezzer drawer

I had the same problem. I found the piece of plastic in the ice tray and couldn't figure how to put it back. I ordered a new ice flapper from the parts place on the internet and installed it. The ice maker now shuts off. Good Luck.

The ice maker in my 550 bottom drawer makes ice but does not shut off before spilling a few ice cubes into the drawer. In lookin at teh metal arm that exrendes into the tray it appears that it may not...

good day,
Sub Zero makes both a wire device and on some models a round rubber device that slides over the ice level arm. If you don't have one on your model, call your local appliance parts house and check with them. The wire model just clips on, the rubber style has a **** in it. The purpose is to shut the ice maker off before it becomes too full, causing your problem.

Sub-zero 550. freezer icing

You probably have some food on the way. Unload the freezer and see if the door would close better. Looks like you have a warm air leak.

Sub-Zero 642 ice maker

When the drawer is opened, trhe "full arm" swings up and out of the way. When the drawer is pushed back closed, the arm should swing back down. If it is unobstructed, the icemaker should make ice.

One thing to try is with the ice tray removed, push the plate (that holds the ice tray) back into the freezer. Lift the full arm up and down. It should easily move and you should be able to hear a slight "click" when moving up/down. If not, you might have a bad switch in the ice maker unit...replacement time.

Sub Zero 632 leaking water

Had the same problem on the same model (632). Turned out to be a plugged drain tube on the condensate collection trough located on back wall of the refrigerator. Simply pull out the crisper drawer (the drawer below the lowest shelf) and you'll bee the trough. The drip tube can easily be plugged by a vegetable leak or grape, etc which had fallen into this trough. Hope its as simple for you as for us.

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.

Sub-Zero 550 - freezer unit is chilling, but not freezing

Ice maker was intermittent at best - ice was often just a shell. After two failures to correct we had the ice maker (a Whirlpool - on a Sub Zero - Go figure) replaced. Then the paddle that detects the ice level broke. Next step a new GE.

Frozen vegtables within refrigerator (sub zero 650)

Replacing the light switch is not related to the temperature. Check the settings on your controls.

Sub zero 532 ice maker

When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.

Freezer Drawer Stuck

Our 550 bottom freezer drawer froze shut earlier this week and the motor made an unusual sound, like it was working too hard. Two of us eventually were able to open the drawer to find that it had frozen shut due to a leak which filled the ice tray solid and then adhered to the actual door, freezing it shut. We emptied the fridge and freezer, turned the control dials down to 0, but neither the motor nor the light would go off. We finally killed the circuit breaker to get the appliance to shut down. It's cleaned and defrosted and we noticed that the gasket has torn in three places, two on the fridge door and one on the freezer door. The freezer door could be from our tugging, but the refrigerator door is normal wear and tear. We filled the tears with some kind of putty and when it is dry we will start everything up again. This is not the first problem of this nature we have experienced with our subzero 550, but it is the most dramatic. Each previous time we have called a repair man out and he has been unable to fix it.
