Question about Sub-Zero 30.1 cu. ft. Cabinet Depth Side-by-Side Refrigerator 632 / F

2 Answers

Sub zero #590

Ice and water come out, when desired, but the dispenser keeps clicking-on and off for HOURS-after it's ice or water comes out, but the clicking noise continues, poltergeist like. Otherwise, it's working just fine.

    Turn on water supply to ice maker after 6 month not being used and water started to leak from the top panel inside the freezer door by the light. How can I get into the top panel to fix the water leak? It is a sub-zero side by side model #590 serial # M1085884.

Sub zero leaks water

You need to replace that water line, except it's not on top on a 632. And those weren't available in 1994. Do you maybe have a 590?

What is causing my sub zero moled 590 , made in feb 93 to gradually warm up?

yeah vacuuming behind the fridge is a good start this will help the fridge preform better as when dust builds up on the condenser it will cause the discharge to be hotter than it should be making the cooling in the case not as efficient. i would start by removing the pannel in the fridge and seeing if any ice is on the evaporator

No water or ice from door & light not working properly

Needs a new dispenser, there's really nothing else that can cause this. I gave more info on your listing under 690 model. Good Luck!

Ignore the fan operation... That is perfect.

You are likely experiencing a DEFROST failure
(most commonly a defrost timer failure)...
part number 3081180 item 69 on your exploded
top view (top right side as viewed from the front).

There are typically only three (3) elements to a DEFROST
- Defrost Timer (as noted above)

- Heater element to WARM the EVAPORATOR

- DEFROST thermostat... inhibit excess heat
(closed circuit at freezing - Opens at room temperature)

Check your defrost pan...
there should be water there DAILY...

IF not: you are assured that your DEFROST fails.

You need to look for a SUDDEN REASON (huge air leak)
why FROST would form so quickly...
USUALLY a big pizza box... BUT ANYTHING blocking a
TIGHT DOOR SEAL will cause massive frosting.

It is taking moisture from the WARM ROOM AIR and blocking your evaporator...

Yes ... all INTERIOR panels must be in place for the refrigerator to function properly.

In door water and ice cube not working

Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

Ice maker will not stop!

You are going to have to replace the dispensor module. Go to for your local parts distributor or service agent. The factory number is 800-222-7820 and they are very helpful.

Water Tastes Funny From Sub Zero Dispenser

It will take about three to four months of using it before the plastic loses it freshness into your water. It has to dissipate the "New Car/Plumbing Smell" so to speak. It.s a normal unpleasant necessity but on the bright side... it does go away with use.
