Question about Sub-Zero Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Sub zero 511 icemaker not working ..

I had turned down the entire frig. to zero by turning it down with the interior controls while painting the trim ( for rusted appearance). after 3 days, i raised the temp up w the interior controls to resume normal function. apparently, it never goes off w this method..... i believe that the once working icemaker is now frozen. the mechanics are prob. fine. how do i troubleshoot options to get it going?

Well it happens you know?
the control switch thats never been moved for years packs up the moment you try to move it! that was the thermostat control by the way,
its like a volume switch,,,they kind of weld them selfs together,,you just broke the weld! the only way to fix it now is fit a new thermostat

Viking Frig ice maker


Depends how old the Viking is?
Older Vikings with icemakers with a arm on the side, simply lift
the arm up until locks.
Newer Vikings with Electronic Controls look for a "slide switch"
mounted on the right side of front interior trim. You will see a
red led light usually blinking on and off near the slide.

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

Top of my sub zero isn't cold enough and freezer is fine...I had this problem once before and solution was simple...water runs up to frig and it froze so I think I had to turn off frig so it could...


Hi, you can sometimes get away with just turning the fridge off so i would try that first, give it enough to melt and then switch it back on and see what happens, but if after doing that its still got the same problem then it will need it all turning off, usually just turning the fridge off for few hours solves the problem, it does help if you turn the freezer down a bit as well but remember to turn it back up after else you will have soggy food.

so give the above a try it usually works but turning the freezer down a bit usually saves you turning the freezer off so give that a try and see how you get on ok

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as a lot of people cant be bothered than i get a whole page or 5 pages of unrated posts, thanks

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.

you might have a few problems,, make sure to check the condensor is clean, also make sure the condensor fan motor is going... you might have a bad Condensor fan motor, and Ref Control or a Freon Leak @ the Evaporator... I would call a tech to check it out...

Sub-Zero temperture fluctuation


Just posted this elsewhere and it sounds like the same problem:
As you probably know, the recommended temperature range is between 35-45 F so if your control will not allow you to set this, the sensor or associated regulator has failed. 

This seems to be an issue with Sub-Zero.

Icemaker does not work on subzero 650


My ice maker on the Subzero 650 is up and running again. After checkig the tray and shutoff mechanism thoroughly I checked the display in the fridge aea and noticed a "service icemaker" indicator. I turned the icemaker off and then on again with no change. I then turned the power to the entire refridgerator/freezer unit off, waited ten seconds, and thurned it back on. This apparently must have reset some type of logic because the icemaker immediately began to cycle (ice ejector began to turn slowly) and then I heard the water soelenoid turn on to inject water into the ice trough. It's been 24 hours now and the icemaker tray is filling up nicely. I guess my icemaker just need to be rebooted. The miracles of modern technology. I appreciate the suggestions posted in response to my posting as well as the postings of others with similar issues as well as te corresponding suggestions. All of these together lead me to investigating areas that ultimately lead to resolution. I probably would have called for an expensive repairman if not for this forum. THANKYOU!
