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.

Not making ice fast enough


Good day,
Assuming the cubes it's making are the proper size, the speed the ice maker produces ice is determined by the temperature in the freezer.
When the ice maker harvests a batch of ice, an electric heater heats up the whole ice maker.
There is a thermostat embedded in the ice maker. It must cool back down to approx. 12 degrees before making the next batch. The colder the freezer compartment, the faster the cycles.

If the cubes are too small then that is usually caused by a blockage in the water filter if your unit has one, or the water valve that feeds water to the ice maker is getting weak, or lastly the water supply to the machine has become partially restricted.

On extremely rare occasions the thermostat built into the ice maker goes out of calibration which can cause a delay in cycling and requires the ice maker to be replaced. But again, it is a very rare occurrence.

Seems to be cooling fine but makes a buzzing sound for 7 seconds then stop.


Hi,

The 7 second buzz would be from the water valve trying to fill the ice maker that is in the freezer.

My guess is that your refrigerator is not connected to a water supply. You can stop the buzz by opening the freezer drawer and turning off the ice maker, it will have either an on/off switch or an arm on the right side that lifts up and locks in place, that will stop the buzz

RF266ABPN French Door Firdge/freezer Ice maker sensor


I found David's solution very helpful and I'll just add to it. Take out the top freezer door-- it just slides out and up. I had a bunch of stuff on the little shelf on the actual door and I had to take some of it off first. The big bottom drawer stays on. The little foam piece was on the floor of the freezer so I picked that up and can see how the little sensor part fits into it. Next, I put a chair next to the open bottom drawer, sat on it and leaned back onto and into the big drawer. I had to torque my head to actually get right under the ice maker. I am 5'5" so I don't know the heck David did it! Anyway, there is a little "slot" next to the last ice cube mold closest to the door. This is where the foam piece goes in. The slot where this piece goes has some raised lines sticking out on each side-- I wouldn't call them brackets and the foam thing doesn't stay in well by itself. However, on the right side of the ice maker, near that last cube, is a little hook. So I slid foam piece up with the sensor tucked in, facing the ice cube mold. I wrapped the tail/wire around the bottom of the foam piece and also the hook, so that it kind of holds the foam piece up in there, kind of cradling it. That was my solution, we'll see if it works!

Feeler arm on ice maker prevents freezer drawer from opening


Hi, There is no adjustment on the level arm other then bending it. Is it posible that something snagged it as the drawer was being pulled out and bent it? The arm should collapse all the way down tothe side of the icemaker and level with the bottom of the icemaker.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can help further.

Icemaker makes tons of ice and it spills all over the floor


The icemaker should have a thin metal arm that turns it off when the arm is raised, and on when the arm is lowered. This is so when the tub of ice gets full, the cubes push the arm up, and the icemaker is turned off to keep from making excess ice.

When I had the overflowing ice, I checked my icemaker and found that the arm had fallen off (and thus the icemaker won't know when to stop making ice). I found the arm and stuck it back on, and all was well. It may be a bit tricky, and it might take some ingenuity to keep the arm from falling back off.

I hope this helps!

Sub Zero Frezzer drawer


I had the same problem. I found the piece of plastic in the ice tray and couldn't figure how to put it back. I ordered a new ice flapper from the parts place on the internet and installed it. The ice maker now shuts off. Good Luck.
