Is your refrigerator leaking water? Take a look at our guide to resolve a refrigerator water leak.

Check the Ice Bin

One common cause of a Sub-Zero refrigerator ice maker overflowing is an improperly installed or loose ice bin. The ice bin must be properly installed in order to work correctly.

To check if the ice bin is properly installed, open the freezer door and look for the two plastic tabs on the top of the ice bin. The ice bin should be flush with the freezer wall and these tabs should be visible.

If the tabs are not visible or if the ice bin is not flush with the freezer wall, it is not properly installed.

To install the ice bin, hold it against the freezer wall and ensure that the two tabs on top are in the correct position. Then, push firmly until you hear a click.

Check the Max Ice Feature

Does your Sub-Zero ice maker make too much ice? Another common cause of a Sub-Zero refrigerator ice maker overflowing is the Max Ice feature. This feature increases ice production for a 24-hour period.

To verify that the Max Ice feature is not enabled, press and hold both control panels at once for five seconds to open diagnostic mode. Scroll down to “ice” with the arrow buttons and press enter.

If “max ice” is highlighted, this means that the max ice feature is enabled and needs to be turned off. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to “max ice” and press enter.

Then, use the arrow buttons to scroll to “off” and press enter. The display should now say “ice off.”

Check the Ice Maker Shut-Off Arm

If the ice maker shut-off arm is not attached to the ice maker, this could be causing your Sub-Zero refrigerator ice maker to overflow.

To check if the ice maker shut-off arm is properly attached, open the freezer door and look for the small metal arm on the side of the icemaker.

Check the Ice Maker Rudder Arm

If the ice maker rudder arm is not attached to the shut-off arm, this could also be causing the problem of a Sub-Zero ice maker overflows.

To check if the rudder arm is properly attached, open the freezer door and look for the small metal arm on the side of the icemaker.

The rudder arm should be in an upright position and attached to the shut-off arm. If it is not, simply reattach it by pushing it into place until you hear a click.
