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.

Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at repairclinic.com. logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.

SOURCE: Sub zero 532 ice maker

When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

My ice maker in my Sub Zero Model 532 won't make ice. I can hear the motor try to unload ice, but nothing comes out. I think the hose is frozen but I dont know how to get to it. Help!


It sounds like it is the fill solinoid for the ice maker..I don't know if you just had it installled or if you have had this for a while.. so I will offer a couple of options.. your Sub-Zero is a built in and is not easy to pull out because it is sitting on jack bolts and will have to be let down before it can be pulled out...if you have owned it for a while and the icemaker has stopped working it maybe the water line solinoid It should be located at the front of the unit behind the kick panel on the bottom of the frig. take the two screws out that hold on the toe kick and then
you will be able to see where the water line connects to the frig. that assembly is the solinoid and is secured with a couple of 1/4" hex screws.. if you call your local appliance repair/parts dealer and give them the model and serial # off the tag inside of the refrigerator door they can order it and replace it for you if you do not want to mess with it...or if the unit was just installed you may want to make sure that
the water line is not kinked underneath the unit.. it is
pretty tight under there and somtimes when the unit is rolled back into the hole the line will get kinked..
it sounds like the rest of the unit is working fine. it is just not getting water.... I hope this helps.....

Our model 532 keeps over filling the ice maker causing a build up on the back and down all of the drawer. We can turn it off and thaw the entire box and the water keeps filling the tray even though the ice...


The fill valve for the ice maker could be stuck partially open and dripping into the ice maker. If this is the case shut off the water line to the ice maker and if the water stops you will need to replace the ice maker fill vavle

Ice maker won't stop dripping


If your i/m is dripping you most likely have a crack in the ice mold, you should replace the ice maker.

Sub-Zero 632 Ice Maker Leaking into Ice Bucket


Ice Maker is overflowing and leaking into the ice bucket: There are several things to check for.
Go for the easy stuff first, make sure the icemaker is level, some of the plastic liner fridge's will move and allow the icemaker to tilt over and leak. Other troublemakers..... the fill valve
staying on and over filling the icemaker..... the finish sometimes comes off the icemaker body and all the ice cubes don't come out. This will allow the new water to fill on top of an icemaker
that still has a ice cube or two left inside the body, if you have had trouble with black specs in your ice cubes, this may have been the beginning of your finish problem on the icemaker body.
On the module style ice makers (Whirlpool, Maytag Family, Sub Zero) the printed circuit in the
module head often wears and the contacts become too long and allow the icemaker to over fill = new ice maker or new module head.
waterfilladjustment.jpg
Older style icemakers: This gear is bad for breaking and the icemaker quits turning to eject the ice.
You can remove the front cover to see the gear.
This is a common parts breakdown of the older style icemakers

Water fill volume: The water fill adjustment screw will change the fill volumes by changing the fill time.
One half to one full turn usually ( approx ) is equal to 20cc ( 0.68oz ) to 40 cc.
The correct fill is usually 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).
When a water valve is replaced the fill volumes must be re-checked!

Sub Zero 532 Freezer Not Making Ice


These all sound like there is no water coming into the ice trays. The main water valve where the water feed line comes into the unit is probably plugged or not working at all. The solinoid may not be opening the valve..If you can operate a voltohm meter then test the solinoid coil to see that it is good by seeing an ohm reading below 1000 ohms. Also if you are crafty enough you could unplug the wires from it and connect 110vac directly to the solinoid coil to see if it clicks and lets water run in.. Also be sure the water is coming to the solinoid...If water is coming to it and the solinoid is letting water go through when fed directly with 110vac the problem is in the control circuit that operates the ice maker.
That problem would be on the Ice maker itself...
