Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.


If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…


Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

How do you get an icemaker in a subzero 650 refrigerator to stop making ice when the bin is full?


There should be a metal bar that flips when it hits the ice at a certain level. It should stop automatically. There is a problem with the sensor.

Making hardly any ice


Are the ice cubes being formed the same size as before? If freezer temperatures are increasing above 5 Degrees Fahrenheit in freezer this will slow down and at times stop ice production. Look around the rear wall of your freezer to see if a layer of frost is building. If yes this will indicate a defrost problem that in turn raise freezer and fresh food temperatures. Here is a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting PDF You can find this info on this page HERE You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents.

Subzero 501F icemaker slow in making ice


More thatn likely, being thats an older model, you are low on freom and the temperature isn't cold enough for the icemaker to keep constant production up. You maybe thinking the freezer is fine because stuff is frozen in there but that is why most people don't catch the problem until they lose all their food. The temperature for the icemaker to even come on is 10 degrees F. The sub zero freezer temperature should be around 0. Check your settings and make sure they are turned down but I would get a thermometer and put in the freezer and check to see what it says. If its above 5 degrees F check your condensor coils to make sure they are clean and also see it the condensor fan is running. If dirty, clean the coils and see if the temperature drops, if not call a service company.

Subzero freezer with ice maker. Ice melts and refreezes, into blocks of ice. What could be causing this?


Good day,
In most cases it is the water valve that feeds water to the ice maker well. The valve is energized by the ice maker to fill for 7 seconds and then shut off promptly.
The valve will many times dribble water into the well after shut off, causing an overflow problem.
The fix is a new water valve kit.
The only other possibility is the freezer temperature going above freezing from time to time, but is a rare problem.

My subzero 650 ice maker drips water w/o making ice. Makes a mess with ice build up. I had to turn off water lined to stop the ice maker from dripping. Turning off the ice maker switch did not stop the ice...


Good day,
No, a new water valve should solve that problem. The diaphram in the valve is not completely closing.
Very common problem.

Thank you for using FixYa

Freezer Drawer Stuck


Our 550 bottom freezer drawer froze shut earlier this week and the motor made an unusual sound, like it was working too hard. Two of us eventually were able to open the drawer to find that it had frozen shut due to a leak which filled the ice tray solid and then adhered to the actual door, freezing it shut. We emptied the fridge and freezer, turned the control dials down to 0, but neither the motor nor the light would go off. We finally killed the circuit breaker to get the appliance to shut down. It's cleaned and defrosted and we noticed that the gasket has torn in three places, two on the fridge door and one on the freezer door. The freezer door could be from our tugging, but the refrigerator door is normal wear and tear. We filled the tears with some kind of putty and when it is dry we will start everything up again. This is not the first problem of this nature we have experienced with our subzero 550, but it is the most dramatic. Each previous time we have called a repair man out and he has been unable to fix it.
