Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Sub Zero dripping noise from freezer when cycles off

When the fridge cycles off I hear a constant dripping sound coming from within the evaporator section of the freezer. As soon as the compressor kicks in the dripping sound stops. Everything is working fine although there is sweating underneath at the back right. The fridge is 12 years old and has had the fridge evaporator replaced as is commonplace with the 650 series. Any ideas?

Is this noise periodically or every time the fridge cycles off? Does it sound like water dripping on a hot surface?

SOURCE: sub zero freezer too warm

I believe the freezer has to get down to 7 degrees or lower for icemaker to harvest. Clean your condenser and blow it out. If that doe not fix it you will need service for sealed system

I have a sub-zero fridge/freezer model #550. I inherited this unit when I recently purchased my home. The problem I have is that water dripds in the freezer area on the right hand side opposite from the...


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

Trickling water noise coming from the bottom of the fridge.


It may be nothing to be concerned about. The water produced during the defrost cycle drains into a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. This water is then evaporated by heat from the refrigerant coils.

You may be hearing this water dripping into the pan from the tubing that carries it from the inside of the refrigerator.

Whirlpool Fridge makes a loud dripping sound all the time G56SHE


Erin,

The water you hear sounds like it's coming from the automatic defroster in the freezer compartment. It runs down a drain tube into the pan you describe under the fridge. The pan is heated and evaporates the water.

Just some possible explanations if you are hearing "lots" of water"

* You may be in a warmer, more humid climate
* The temperature and humidity in your dwelling is elevated
* The door gasket on the freezer may be leaking
* The freezer is too full
* The freezer door is not closing properly
* The freezer door is being left open for extended periods
* There is a problem with the defrost cycle

If you are hearing water running all the time, check the ice maker water line and fill valve (if you have an ice maker) - there could be a leak or other malfunction.

Heavy water leak in basement under fridge


Has this fridge got an ice maker???
Because ice makers require a water supply to make ice.
This could be where your water is coming from.
