Question about Refrigerators

There is a trench/drain on the back wall behind

Sub Zero 650 - There is a trench/drain on the back wall behind the produce drawer that collects water but does not drain. The water then leaks onto the surface below the produce drawer and eventually after a few days through the door seal and onto the floor. I don't know where/what the drain is supposed to flow into and whether that (whatever it may be) needs to be emptied.Any suggestions?

If you can view to rear of the unit wnd remove the bottom panel, there should be a hose coming from the drain to a pan of some type. If it has clamps on both ends remove the tube, place a vessel under the top tube attach point of trench drain and test the trench drain, if water is flowing freely from the drain to the vessel then clean out the tubing and replace.

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.

Water is leaking out from the fridge floor onto the ground.


The drain pan in the back evaporates from the heat of the compressor. The freezer drain drains into this pan. If there is water under the bins it sounds like the drain is partially clogged and over flowing into the refrig section. But I need more info, like model , brand.

Subzero 650 bottom freezer is pooling water under the veggie drawer


Check you your drain line behind the 2 bottom drawers. Most likely it's clogged. You can try snaking it out with a single foot wire. See if the water goes away from the trough.

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.
