Block of ice

3 posts in this topic

Unit is a Sub Zero model 532, in constant use for about 15 years. Problem is with the ice maker and started several months ago. Ice cubes seem to be properly made and drop into the tray. About 10 minutes later water enters the tray and of course freezes. The result is a single large block of ice with the individual cubed embedded within the block. Any thoughts on how to resolve this issue will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Your ice maker is either over-filling and excess water is going into the ice bin OR the ice maker has a crack in it and is leaking into the ice bin OR has become unlevel and leaking into the the ice bin.

You will have to determine which it is.
