Good day,
Yes it will work fine, however, make sure the ice maker is turned off. Otherwise it will dry cycle causing it undue wear and eventually fail.

Ice maker won't work


Before you replace the Water Valver -Shut your water off - disconnect the water line to the from the back of the refrigerator at the top where it goes into the icemaker. I used zip tie or something flexable item to see if it would go all the way through to the
tube inside the refrig. If you have obstruction - use your hair dryer
to thaw the ice from inside the refrigerator tube. When the flexable goes all the way through. Hook back the water line to the icemaker. You will have ice soon. If Still not working, replace the water inlet valve at bottom back right of refrig.

Need info on how to hook up ice maker lines


OK the ice maker is the boss. It calls for water. Nothing else in the ice box controls the ice maker water but the ice maker itself. How? Fancier models use capacitance of ice mold to correctly fill the ice mold. On board intel monitors the temp of the ice mold by sending power through it and checking for differences in capacitance in the mold. When it hits the sweet spot it monitors the temp till it temps inside the mold determine ice is there and kicks in the harvest cycle. Older styles simply put a measured amount of water into the ice mold at the end of each harvest cycle. You gotta first run a water line to the water valve and then run a line from the water valve up to the Ice Maker fill spout behind the ice box. Nothing to it.

Ice maker not working in sub zero 561 model


you need to make sure that the unit has the water supply turned on. if you have a water dispensor on the front door and you are getting water then the water supply is on.

This ice maker is located in tight spot and has to be removed to cycle it manualy. so im going to give you a different way of doing a test.

first i want you to try to put your finger in the ice maker to see if you have any water or ice in it.

If it is empty then follow this step : try to get water in it without removing the ice maker. Do not fill it to the rim, just about halfway. This wont be easy, but if you do that you can check it the next day and see if it droped ice. if it did then your water valve is bad.

If it has ice in it then the ice maker in mostlikey bad.
or the switch for on and off is bad. (not common)

The freezer has to be under 14 F for most ice makers to operate.

Ice Maker stopped working


You need to defrost the freezer. By the door being ajar, there was excessive ice build up on the coil that was not removed during a system defrost resulting in a blocked coil. This caused the temperature to rise in the freezer above twelve degrees that is why the ice maker stopped.

Subzero model #561, freezer is warm, water leak


Check to see if the freezer fan is running. Push in the two switches at the top. The light should go out and if the freezer is powered on the fan should come on. The icemaker runs on temperature so no cold means no ice. Check for ice build up around the evaporator. Could be a defrost issue or a sealed system problem. As for the water, is it the floor of the unit or the floor of the house? Is the drippan in place or sitting on the floor? Also check the condenser fan motor. If this is all greek to you, you should probably call a factory authorized servicer.

How to hook up Ice & Water dispenser on freezer door


The water valve is on the back of the refrigerator. The water line connects directly to that valve. If there is no line available then you will need to run one from a cold water line in the plumbing using a drill type (1/4") saddle valve on that pipe. Hope this helps. If you need more instruction let me know!
