Fernando is right! Now I will put it in girl terms. The lip of the drawer (lip is at back of the drawer) rests on a white plastic thing. But when you take the drawer out completely, the white plastic thing retracts and just looks like the back of the fridge. So when you go to put the drawer back in, you see nothing to put the lip on. So pull the white plastic thing (it looks like a white plastic rectangle about the size of an envelope) forward and then hook the lip onto it and gently pull the white "augur" (the thing that senses when it's time to make ice) down and slide the drawer back in. My son figured this out from reading Fernando's solution. What a relief! Our model is a 561.

Re: subzero model 532
The trick to putting the drawer back correctly is to ensure that the auger pushes into the motor coupling. To achieve this you will have to put the drawer in place and gently push it in while turning the auger inside the drawer by hand. You will know when it has clicked in.
Well done! The two explanations were really helpful for a Subzero series 600 as well. Nothing in the manual or on line did nearly as good a job of explaining this. Basically, that white rectangle that slides back and forth is the carrier for the drawer, and the lip of the back of the drawer hangs on it. Once you get that, it's pretty simple!

Subzero freezer: We had all our drawers stuck, including the ice drawer. We turned off the refrigerator, took all the drawers out and defrosted the rails with a hair dryer. The ice drawer was misaligned, so we reset the allen screws on the left to be the correct width. All better!
make sure your ice tray in in the righ position. really important. the tray have to press the ice maker switch. or bad ice maker or bad water valve. also make sure to press the ice maker key. in the display. ONLY IN NEW MODELS
Did u check condenser on the top behind the grill? If it's clean, check unit for evaporator freon leaking. Light....Possibly bad bulbs behind that plastic light cover or light switch - one of them located on upper portion of door frame.
We have the same SubZero unit and the water leak is the ice maker line or the pan that catches condensation. If you unscrew the panel at the bottom, you will be able to take the pan out and see if the water is from there. If it is from the ice maker line (which was plastic on ours), you should fix this right away as we didn't and we ended up having a $10,000 flood that ruined our hardwood floors. Also, the increased motor noise happened to us as well, but when we had the motor replaced, it is not much quieter.
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.
