Drain pans accumulate condensate liquid as part of the normal refrigeration process.
- A drain pan may be more than half full of water at any given time depending on several factors.
- Drain pan condensation evaporates as the unit runs, so it is not necessary to empty it regularly.

To clean a Sub-Zero drain pan:
- Remove the drain pan.
- Empty the drain pan.
- Use a mild detergent, baking soda paste, and water to clean and wipe with a soft cloth.
- Rinse and dry thoroughly.
- Replace the drain pan.
Note: Drain pans in most Undercounter and 700 Series units are not removable by the consumer. If needed, they can be emptied by using a large syringe (turkey baster) to suck up any water and residue.
If there is water under the crisper drawers, the drain tube may be clogged.
- Food debris, standing water, or ice built-up in the drain trough or drain tube located along the back wall may cause this.
- For a 200, 300, 500, or 600 Series unit, refer to 200/300-500-600 Series Refrigerator Drain Tube Cleaning.
