    Ice maker has stopped making ice. It has done this before and I seem to recall it was a fairly simple fix with a new part necessary. I can't however remember what I did to fix it.

    ice maker stopped working; seams like a lot of ice/water on top of freezer; sub zero 550/

  • aiarls May 11, 2010

    Verified water supply to the valve, verified valve to icemaker works(unit has dual valve at rear bottom of fridge): I switched plugs, pressed water dispenser and water ran through line. HOWEVER the water flow appeared to be low, but there was pressure (put thumb over end). As I was removing the icemaker the unit heater coil was hot. Couple questions. #1- Can a low water flow thru value cause icemaker NOT to trigger filling? #2- Or is icemaker bad because it isn't triggering the value to open and fill with water? thx

Verify the water supply to the valve first, second verify valve to icemaker works(unit has dual valve at rear bottom of fridge, switch plugs, then press water dispenser and see if icemaker fill with water ) if fills icemaker is bad , if not valve is bad. replace one or the other.

Sub Zero model 632 Icemaker shutoff arm stuck in the up position. No water in ice tray. Tried turning frig off for 30 seconds, no luck. Checked water supply, it's good. Metal fill tube not...


The shut off arm is in up position. This is the off position for the ice make. Try pulling the down to the first level this will engage the micro switch to start the ice maker. Also, behind the ice maker is a 4 wire plug remove the plug and see if there were some electrical arcing. But first before removing the ice make plug--Please unplug the refrigerator first before work on the ice maker. stewbison

good day,
Sub Zero makes both a wire device and on some models a round rubber device that slides over the ice level arm. If you don't have one on your model, call your local appliance parts house and check with them. The wire model just clips on, the rubber style has a **** in it. The purpose is to shut the ice maker off before it becomes too full, causing your problem.

We have a sub zero refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. The ice maker stopped working and i am wondering if there is a switch that i might have accidently hit to turn it off


No, Sub Zero does not have an icemaker switch to turn it off and on. How old is your unit? Icemakers can last for 3 years and sometimes they can go out after 18 months.

I believe it's your ice maker. We are factory authorized Sub Zero and can get the correct part out to you right away.

Sub-Zero 550 - freezer unit is chilling, but not freezing


Ice maker was intermittent at best - ice was often just a shell. After two failures to correct we had the ice maker (a Whirlpool - on a Sub Zero - Go figure) replaced. Then the paddle that detects the ice level broke. Next step a new GE.

My subZero Model 245 Icemaker stopped making ice


Ice maker, I don't know where you can find the manual but I'll give you a few ideas of what to look for. First make sure that the inlet tube is not frozen over. Next, look at the center gear on the module and see if the clips in the center are not broken. If so you will have to replace the module. The ejector blades should be at the 2:00 position when home. If you get a jumper wire and jump T to H, this will by pass the bi-metal and run a cycle. The ice maker should fill at around the 12:00 position. Test points L & N will verify if you have 120v to the ice-maker. Test points L & H will test the resistance of the heater, 72 ohms. plus or minus 10%. Hope this gets you going, Catriver...post back.
