Question about Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Hi, My old sub zero 550 has an ongoing problem of. The bottom of fridge module keeps filling up with water. Door fits and seems to seal well.(after closing, takes about 10-20 seconds to pull open again) Been a bit hot and humid here lately (So. Cal). But nothing top severe. I heard this was a common problem du to the drain freesing up and that Sub-Zero had a fix, some sort of heating element. 1) What Is this part called ? ? part #? 2) Where is the opening to this drain and tube (?) located? 3) A small amount of water is also spilling out on the floor (the drain pan is positioned right and the element is warm (last I checked) 4) Any other explanations for the water problems? Thanks in advance. Peter
The tube behind the crisper drawers is not insulated well enough and will repeatedly freeze, leaving the water to drain on your floor. The solution is to thaw the tube and put a piece of copper the length of your tube, into the area below. The wire extending into the area below is just warm enough to keep the tube from freezing.
