In Topic: Sub-Zero Icemaker Not Functioning

News!

 

I cleaned out the old ice in the unit and then was able to force cycle the unit jumping the T and H holes. I watched the head rotate, I think, an entire 360 degrees. Seemed like it took five minutes. The blades move, and everything looked good except no water. Should I prime the unit with water? Is this a water supply issue? If so, I don't thinks it's an ice problem, as none is visible and the heater on the water tube is working.

 

What's the hold up, do you think?

I don't think I can go with "may work." I'll need to fork over the bucks for the OEM unit. It's frustrating because this is the third repair call on the 700TCI in the last two years. Maybe they'll take some pity on me and cover the parts. They actually did that with a condensor that was a year out of warranty.

 

Anyway, thanks for the reassurance that the problem really is in the electronics of the unit and not on the water supply side.

Reg, (Is it okay if I call you that?),

 

It's my other fridge that's running constantly (since it almost certainly has a sealed system issue and can't cool down to its setting [though it gets close enough to be useful]). The Sub-Zero does not run constantly. I just went in there to get myself a Sunday evening sort of beverage (if you get my meaning), and the compressor and fan were definitely not on, but the unit's temps were fine.

 

I promise to check out (and upload if it looks odd) my FF evaporator situation, tomorrow.

 

Cheers,

 

Franz

Thanks for the props on the enormous expenditure. As for the taking apart, I am on it. Or I'll be on it, tomorrow morning. This evening is reserved for family stuff. I am, though, highly curious about the FF evaporator now.

 

Cheers,

Thanks, RegUS_PatOff.

 

That was the freezer evaporator, presumably, as it was at the back of the freezer. I didn't realize there were two evaporators. I guess that's what I paid all the money for, all those years ago. I suppose the fridge evaporator is behind the fresh food compartment. Any reason to take out the contents and look at it?
