We investigate the influence of a weak uniform field [Formula Presented] on chaotic diffusion generated by iterated maps which, in the absence of the field, lead to subdiffusion. When [Formula Presented] the probability density [Formula Presented] of the escape times from the vicinity of the fixed points of the maps decays as a power law. When a field is switched on, [Formula Presented] decays exponentially at long enough times, with a decay rate that diverges when [Formula Presented] becomes small. The mean displacement and mean squared displacement show a transition from an anomalous type of motion, valid at short times, to a normal behavior at long times.
