Question about Refrigerators
I have an older (1993) Subzero 801 undercounter fridge/freezer with icemaker. A couple of months ago it stopped making ice. The ice tray isn't filling with water. I thought maybe the line was clogged so I blew it out with an air compressor but no luck. Any ideas on how I might be able to save this unit? It still cools and freezes perfectly but is the only ice maker I have. Thanks for any suggestions!!
Blowing the water lines may not be a good idea. If you blow with compressor toward inlet valve , you can push the blockage toward valve. Most blockages are caused by ice, you unblock them simply defrosting the fridge completely.
The problem is likely caused by a faulty inlet valve.
The inlet valve is usually located at the back of the fridge, at the bottom. Being this an undercounter unit, the valve may be located straight on the rear side of icemaker assembly.
I could be more specific having the complete model number.
Here all parts for your fridge. alternatively enter model number on website.
