Sub-Zero 685 Ice Maker Problems

Had a service guy come out to tell me that Ice Maker needed to be replaced. Dual valves were also recently replaced. Water was leaking into the Ice Chest and freezing the ice as well as pooling on the bottom and eventually freezing. I purchased an Ice Maker online and replaced, but seems to be doing the same thing. I adjusted the water fill as well w/ no success. Is there something wrong w/ the timing at which the ice is released ? Please advise.. Thank You.

    My icemaker isn't making ice. Everything seems to work, but I don't ever hear any water running thru to make ice. Yet, the water dispenser works on the door. What should I be looking for?

There are 2 important things to be aware of with these icemakers. One is that they need to be completly level, both side to side and front to back. Second, the fill on these icemakers should be right about 100 milliliters. Get a measuring cup with Ml markings and pull out the icemaker. Fast forward the icemaker by jumpering the little test terminals behind the square cover. You need to connect the terminals labeled T for thermostat and H for heater together with a piece of wire. Be careful, as there is 110 volts to these terminals. Keep the wire there for about fifteen seconds,then pul it out or the icemaker will get really hot. Just as a note, for all this to work the icemaker must be plugged in, turned on , and you must hold down the switch that is pushed by the bucket. If there are no test terminals on the icemaker, then you can just fast forward it by pushing the fingers around in a clockwise direction looking at it from the square end. Anyways, once you get it moving, put your measuring cup under the fill tube and wait for the fill cycle. the water should be very close to 100 ml (range is 90-120ml). If your fill is correct, and the icemaker is PERFECTLY level, then make sure the fill tube is inserted all the way into the icemaker. Hope you can wade through all this for an answer. Good Luck!

My ice maker is making a clicking sound on my sub zero 650

Do you have water connected? Was it working before?

Disconnect the power to the icemaker. Does the clicking stop. If it does it is the servo motor. Sub Zero are highly overengineered, you will need a technician. These days they fix with a laptop.

Ice maker stopped making ice

If ice maker is not filling with water then fill with tap water and allow to freeze. If ice maker cycles and then does not refill then this points to water control valve. If that happens replace water control valve. Ifice maker does nothing but freeze water to ice then the ice maker will need replaced or parts causing problem fixed. Please call Sub Zero at 1-800-222-7820 and they will refer you to one of their six authorized parts and service centers. Thank You, Sea Breeze

I have sub zero 642 and my techinician says that I need a ice make valve replacement. He says it costs $495, does that seem accurate?

Sub-Zero a hallowed name in refrigeration, and the 642 side-by-side refrigerator/freezer unit is a landmark Yeah, it's that impressive. Dual refrigeration uses two compressors and three evaporators, I can tell you to never expect less than $300 for calling anyone to your home!

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.
