Sounds like you have a blocked drain tube....when defrost system kicks in the melted water runs down a tube into a tray adjacent to the compressor and is evaporated by the heat. when the tube becomes blocked the water has nowhere else to go except overflowing and out through the refridge vent down the back and onto the floor of the refridge.

If you are hand with tools i can explain a procedure to fix this problem, If not call a service guy :)

Refrigerator sub zero 736 TC water leaking under vegetable drawer


Usually from plugged evaporator drain tube.

remove all the drawers and unscrew the frame that holds the drawers. Free the the drain tube (need to unscrew the clamps that hold the tube to the back wall). Pull it up from the bottom hole where it drains into the pan and free it from the top drain pan. Most likely it\'s plugged with crap and fungus and yecchy stuff. Clean it out and reinstall it.

Making a sound like fan is hitting something stops when pull open the drawer and ice tray


For me it was easy to fix. Ice had built up around the fan. I removed the bottom drawer. And remove the plate over the fan. That's the one in the back. 2 screws. remove the ice. Like new. The reason noise stops when you open the drawer is that the fan stops when you open it.

Ice behind the high humidity compartment


You have clogged train which has frozen over. There is a factory kit to add a heater. You firrst might want to try and defrost the tube using warm water after your remove the ice. You want to make sure that water will flow down that trough and passed the tube. THe watere goes to a drain pan below.

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.

Sub-Zero 550 water leak and freezing


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.
