Plug a Product in with an Extension Cord

Core Issue:

  • Can an extension cord be used on a Wolf or Sub-Zero product?
  • The outlet is in the wrong place, can an extension cord be used?
  • The power cord will not reach, what options are available?
  • When replacing an older Sub-Zero or Wolf, does the outlet need to be moved for the new unit?


Extension cords should not be used with Sub-Zero or Wolf products.
  • Even if used only as a temporary solution while work is being completed over short period of time, use of an extension cord could cause damage to the unit.
  • The power supply source or electrical outlet must be placed in accordance with the appropriate design and installation specifications.
  • For information on power cord lengths, refer to:
For additional information, refer to the Sub-Zero Design Guide or the Wolf Design Guide.
