550 Subzero ice maker will not stop making ice
« on: May 05, 2009, 10:53:35 AM »

I have a Subzero refridgerator with bottom freezer.  Lately the ice maker will not stop making ice, unless I remove the ice bin.

Any ideas?

thanks

Usually this is a bad cam or gear in the icemaker. It may be best to replace the complete icemaker assembly.

Check to see if the feeler arm is properly attached. If it has fallen off the ice maker will just continue to make ice.

Definitely check that arm, while you are doing that inspect for proper contact closure of the arm's micro switch.
