We had the same problem on our 650. It turns out that there is a white plastic arm attached to the icemaker shut-off switch. This plastic piece was knocked off sometime when we pulled open the freezer. I found it laying on the bottom of the freezer compartment.

I stumbled on this site while looking for the replacement part.

Look in your freezer at the icemaker. It is not easy since the upper drawer is in the way. You will see a metal wire that is the actuator for the shut-off switch. It should have a white piece of plastic clipped on the part that is closest to the ice bin. If not, or if only half of the plastic part is there, That is your problem.

Let us know if you find the part, how much it costs, where you got it.

Back door of icemaker is fozen,cannot be fixed


Unplug your unit and let it sit for 24 hours. It will melt the ice and then you can dump the overflow tray located on the bottom of the unit. You may have to remove the guard in front to access the overflow water tray.

Clogged up icemaker on subzero 601F due to the door not being properly shut. Do I need to defrost the whole freezer to unclog or is there any other way?


You can buy a little steamer at the store and use it to defrost small areas. usually it's the fill tube that freezes, and you can hit just it with the handheld steamer. Lots of times however, this model will create a large ice flow below the glass shelf behind the upper basket and icemaker. this is usually caused by a bad drain trough heater. the only way to defrost this is to turn the unit off for 2 days and put towels down inside it and underneath it to catch the water as the ice melts.

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.

Why is water leaking from the bottom of the fridge towards the back?


If its just a few drips - it's likely condensate from the drip pan overflowing.

Check the door seals. Make sure they are clean and not letting fresh (humid) air in and causing it to be over-worked.

It could also be the freezer defrost pan overflowing from the same issue. Usually there is not enough to fill the fan - as it evaporates with the heat of the condenser.

If there seems to be alot - your water line to the icemaker or water dispenser may have frozen / cracked.

There's really a few reasons that will require further investigation.

Ice cube tray overflowing-not shuting off automatically


Yes that is a plastic extension for the icemaker shut off. When replaced the new one should be secured with two small zip ties. You can use the ice on/off button to shut the icemaker off manually in the mean time. When ice is displayed in the panel it is on and when it is off so is the icemaker.

Freezer and icemaker freezes, jams.


I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.

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.
