First off, make sure its under 17F in freezer as icemaker will not start above this...you need to make sure the icemaker is coming on..if so, you may just have a bad water valve. I'd put four ounces of water into the mold and see if it starts by itself dumping out your ice. if it dumps out your ice..look to see if the inlet tube that brings water into your i/m is not frozen up with ice in it..if it is, defrost with hair dryer and wait and see if it starts to work ok dumping ice.if it starts to work ok..replace fill valve..

If you find everything looking normal and your sure no ice plug in fill tube..you can try to start i/m manually..if your confident enough to work with tools and electricity...find the T and H they are close to each other on front of i/m. take an insulated wire and make a jumper that each end has 1/2 of end stripped of to go into i/m T and H..keep in there for 30 seconds and i/m should start on its own..remove jumper and either put i/m back or be ready to catch water should it come on. if no letters on front of i/m just gears. find the small 5/16 gear and turn until rake arm starts to come up. this i/m should start on its own ... if it starts and runs fills, replace i/m...if it starts , but does not fill..your inlet valve may be bad. it helps to have a volt meter for this.. you can remove top and find valve up there or its under the bottom front vent plate. locate wires that go onto valve. use your volt meter to check for 111-130 volts when you restart your i/m as already talked about. remember, it will take several minutes before you notice anything..the i/m needs to cycle first and get to the spot it fills..if you get power and no water and your sure there is water..the inlet valve is bad...

Water on floor


The hose that goes into the drip pan to defrost the refer is plugged with stuff.
take the back off and see the hose connection.A coat hanger works well.Usually a 1/4" hose.
Also see where the bottom of the freezer drains into the drip pan.That may be plugged,also.
The temp may be set too low and the condenser is frozen up,leaking water into the floor.Just ice stuck to the condenser.
Possible that the condenser FAN stopped turning. That will ice up and melt at random:
see/hear that the fan is working.
If stuff gets into the fan,it will ice up,melt and make a mess on the floor.

Ice maker is not making ice


Subzero ice makers arent all cut and dry. You could have an intermittent issue with either the ice maker itself, or the solenoid valve. SZs also often utilize a door switch which prevents the ice maker from operating if the door or the basket which the ice bucket sits in are not closed or in the proper position. If you have had other what would seem minor problems, that you have lived with, they can inadvertently affect different things. Most sub zero ice makers you can start manually by rotating the ejector comb clockwise as you look at the front of the icemaker, when the icemaker completes its cycle, do you get water to the ice maker, and do you get enough water, usually 140-150 ccs. If the ice maker continues rotating on its own after your initial start up, and receives the proper amount of water, either you have a cooling problem, a door or something is not in the correct closed position, you have a bad switch, or the ice maker is bad. If you receive little or no water at end of cycle, you have a bad valve.

I suspect a bad fan motor, door switch, or not defrosting.The suction when door closes is caused by the low temperature created when working properly.

I have a Sub-Zero Model 501F freezer making ice cubes


Check defrost heater that goes into drain tube. When the drain freezes ;the defrost water spills into the icemaker.

10+ years old sub zero 550. ice cubes are green


I would not recomend using those ice cubes. Sounds like theres lots of mold or worse growing in your freezer. I would get rid of it. ;(
