Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer drawer on sub zero stuck

The drawer will not move at all. We recently have had some ice build up on the back of the rails. So I suspect ice and ice maker. Is there a valve I can change? If yes where is it?

I'm going to thaw and see if that frees the drawer.

Chances are it is frozen stuck and also needs lubrication. Do this. Unplug it for an hour and try the drawer. If it doesnt open wait another half hour and try it again. When it does open, dry the rails thoroughly with a towel and then a hair blow dryer. Finally spray the rails with a lubricating spray like WD40 or better yet some white lithium lubricating grease, both products readily available at any hardware store, home depot, etc.

SOURCE: Ice maker drawer for sub-zero 632

Look at both those tracks on each side. its likely one or both are cracked or broken. Each one has 2 screws holding it in. To put the metal hange back in the tracks, you must get new tracks (if broken/cracked) then hold the2 tracks onto the bucket carriage...then stick thewhole thing in as an assembly, hen put the 4 screws back in. there are 2 more small screws way in the back (one on each side), but they do not have to be removed, only there to guide the racks in properly. these tracks are only about 7 bucks apeice, and shouldn't take long to chamge. Good Luck!

Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at repairclinic.com. logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.

SOURCE: water puddles under the drawers

You have a blocked defrost drain look at item 56  in this picture. you need to clear this drain either with hot water or clear ice that may have accumulated in the trough. to me it looks as if there is possibly a cover over this area so you will need to remove drawers and shelves to get to it. message me back here with any comments or questions.. You can fix this yourself!! thanks Peyton 10058779-00002.png

SOURCE: sub zero particles in ice from ice maker

This issue occurs if your Ice Maker is not clean or have dust particals inside, follow the below steps in order to clean it properly:

Step 1 Lift the power bar located above the ice maker storage tray.

  • Step 2 Unplug the refrigerator.
  • Step 3 Allow the refrigerator and freezer to defrost. This will melt any large blocks of ice that have accumulated in the ice maker.
    Clean the Ice Machine
  • Step 1 Remove the ice machine storage tray.
  • Step 2 Dump any water in the ice machine storage tray.
  • Step 3 Wash the ice machine storage tray using warm, soapy water. Rinse and allow to dry completely.
  • Step 4 Sanitize the lines of the ice maker. Consult your manufacturer's directions for steps to do this, because it's not available on all models.
    Reassemble the Ice Maker
  • Step 1 Replace the ice machine storage tray.
  • Step 2 Plug the refrigerator into the outlet to restore power.
  • Step 3 Lower the internal power bar located just above the ice machine storage tray. This allows the ice machine to make new ice.

    SOURCE: 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.

    I cannot figure out how to install the left had rail for the Ice drawer on my Sub zero #632 refrigerator


    you have to remove both screws in both rails, and pull the whole carriage and rail out as an assembly. then replace the rail, put the whole assembly back in, making sure to line up the hooks on the back of the rail with the screws way back in the back that aren't removed. then slide the ice bucket carriage back all the way in and put back in the 2 screws in each rail. good luck!

    Sub zero freezer drawer frozen shut


    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!

    Glide rails on kenmore bottom drawer freezer keep freezing up


    I suspect that you've got a leaky ice maker. Do you have clumps of ice in the bin, too? Many times, replacing the ice maker will solve the problem.

    Ice maker is splashing water all over back of freezer and it builds up til the fan starts to make noise if I turn it off and defrost the ice it will start up noise free til the ice builds again.


    What is the model number of your unit? When the ice builds up, does the ice just build up where it is splashing or is the ice also building up behind the back wall of the freezer?

    Thank you! Richard

    Ice maker just stopped making ice. had no problem up to a complete stop


    Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

    First off make sure the water in door still works. If it does not work suspect the door / light switch.
    Next make sure the freezer temp is below 16 Deg F. The ice maker has a thermostat that starts the ice harvest / fill cycle and if the freezer is warming up because of automatic defrosting problems (Ice build up on the evaporator coils) the ice maker will never cycle. If you note an ice build up in the back of the freezer compartment or poor air flow from the evaporator fan you have an automatic defrosting problem. If the fan is not running at full speed the bearings or windings on the evaporator fan are failing and there is not enough air flow to get the freezer to @ or Below 16 F.

    Check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer and the condenser fan in the rear bottom of the unit are running un-obstructed. (clean as necessary.... but if the front of the cabinet is hot to the touch then the condenser coils my be clogged with lint or... the condenser fan is not running full speed.

    The ice maker may be cycling but it may not be filling with water. If it is cycling but your not getting any water.... at all the prime suspect is the solenoid on the inlet water valve. The water valve is not repairable.

    Make sure that the rubber fill tube on the back of ice maker is not blocked with ice... squeeze the end of the tube. If it is frozen with ice... the inlet water valve is bypassing water off cycle and causing the tube to freeze up. The only remedy for this is to replace the inlet water valve.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa,
