Question DetailsAsked on 2/17/2018

what is the cost of replacing a sub zero icemaker?

My model is Sub Zero BI-48SD and Serial F4015522 andit is 7 years old. I've gone through the entire troubleshooting guide, even installing a new water filter. I just had an appliance company out and he looked at it, pressed a few buttons and declared that he could not fix it. He said it would be $1,000 for a new icemaker which I find hard to believe. I see parts out on the web that are $60-$150 at the most. What should the part and the installation cost in 92660? Can a handyman do the install or must it be a Sub-Zero person?

I think he was gouging you because he figured if you could be suckered into buying a $7000-8000 reefer, then you can afford it and deserve to pay through the nose for repairs.

You would have to confirm exact part number, but it appears original was 7002740 and replacement is 7007844 - here are a couple of websites showing parts breakout and pricing -

If only the icemaker is the problem, not water supply or power, changing them out is pretty easy in my experience. But if not a DIY'er (most have plug-in cord for power but some do require connecting bare wire ends), I would go with an Appliance Repair - Large technician rather than a Handyman - not much cost difference and should be a VERY large difference in ability to do it right, and to diagnose it if not the icemaker. Service charge for labor probably about $100-200 depending on local costs.


Cost - a few websites and eBay list new ones under $100, more reliable reefer parts house like above link list more like $180-250 for the complete unit (not including the ice bucket). Could not get SearsAtHome website to come up (they were down) but that or FSP would be other good places to get competitive pricing for the part.
