I had the same problem with my 550...several times the tech came out and used a steam machine to blow out the drain...which didn't solve the problem. Finally, they ordered a refrigerator drain heater from sub-zero (part#4201290) and this finally fixed the problem. Hope this helps...I'm not a tech, just a customer. K

Clarkk I have seen this many times. Your drain is clogged. If you pull the drawers out and pull the top cover you will see the evap. On the cover you will find a nozzle that goes to the drain. Use some compressed air and blow out the drain. In some cases there will be some silicone that will need replaced. You can get a food grade silcone sealant at a hardware store. Hope this helps.

My Subzero 550 did this: The right side of the freezer has a drain that was plugged with ice. When the freezer defrosts the water runs down the inside of the box and onto the drawer rails, where it then freezes. The drain tube is normally kept ice free by an aluminum strap wrapped around the copper defrost tube in the freezer heat exchanger, which runs down into the drain tube. Over time the copper defrost tube gets some surface corrosion and the aluminum strap doesn't get warm enough during the defrost cycle to melt ice in the tube. If you can get it apart, you can clean up the tub surface with steel wool, or buy the electric defroster for the drain tube to replace the aluminum strap.

You probably need to defrost freezer - frozen moisture possibly stockedevap. fan motor in the freezer. Turn it OFF for 24 hours and start itover. Make sure no moisture condensation on the freezer compartmentsurfaces as walls and shelfs. If so wipe it out. Pull out and remove upper basket from the freezer, push fan switch which is located almost under ice maker.You have to hear evaporator fan motor start working. Still not work? Call to professionaltechie! Good luck! :)

http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=Zip%20Code is the locator area parts distributors. Once you get the parts in, remove everything from the door, food, shelves.... Then with the door closed remove the upper hinge. If you have a left hinge unit you can bend the shroud out of the way and bend it back when you are done. The door can be quite heavy if you have wood panels on it so you may need help. Open the door 90 degrees and lift up and over the bottom hinge. Remove the cam from the door using a phillips head screw. Then replace the hinge cam that is on the hinge that is still attached to the body. Now you will need help, lift the door up and have some one set it into the lower hinge pin. Close the door and have some one hold it closed while you climb up and reinstall the hinge. You may have to adjust the door by sliding it forward and back left and right until you get your sight line just right.

Silicone bath/shower sealant should work, the one that smells like vinegar. Also known as RTV.
Just make sure the area is dry, clean and free of old caulk.
It'll need to be at room temperature to set properly for a few hours.
I have used this sealant on things before that went as low as
-50C. Preperation is the key though.
