A few days ago I noticed my sub zero kept making ice and the ice tray was over flowing. I opened up the area took out the ice tray and noticed the plastic arm that regulates when to stop making ice was in the bottom of the freezer area looks like it fell off not broken. How do I put it back on it looks like it goes on the wire that goes above the tray. I have looked in sub zero manuals but dosen't say or show how to re-attach this part.
I had the same problem. I found the piece of plastic in the ice tray and couldn't figure how to put it back. I ordered a new ice flapper from the parts place on the internet and installed it. The ice maker now shuts off. Good Luck.

Unfortunately, you need defrost freezer - put freezer thermostat on OFF. You possibly got broken ice tray or damaged sliders.Or leak in ice maker area. Till you defrost that compartment - no chance to pull tray out.
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.
When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.
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.
