Sub-Zero Drain Pan Removal

Core Issue:

  • How is the drain pan removed?
  • Are drawings, pictures available for drain pan removal?
  • How to reinstall the drain pan
  • How to remove and reinstall the kickplate
  • Where is the drip pan located on a Sub-Zero?
  • There is a black bar in front of the drain pan preventing its removal

Answer:

Integrated Series
The drain pan on a 700 Series and Integrated Series product is not accessible. It is in the rear right corner of the unit so it may be visible if the kickplate is removed but can not be removed for cleaning or care. Contact Factory Certified Service for drain pan removal if needed.

Built-In Series
The drain pan slides in from the front of unit on two side brackets. A locating feature was built into the drain pan
in the form of detents at the bottom front that drop into notches at the front of the side brackets. To remove the drain pan:

1. Remove kickplate.
2. Push front of drain pan up slightly, then pull forward.

600 Series Side by Side and Over/Under models starting with serial # 1810000

  1. Remove the kickplate by extracting two screws at the bottom left and right corners and pull forward
    • The drain pan is located near the center of the unit
  2. Push in on the front of drain pan and up slightly, then pull forward to remove
  3. To reinstall, slide the rear of the pan back into place then push up on the front tab until it engages in the kickplate support.

500 Series and 600 Series Side by Side and Over/Under Models prior to serial # 1810000

  1. Remove the kickplate by extracting two screws at the bottom left and right corners and pull forward.
  2. Push the front of the drain pan back and down.
  3. Pull the drain forward.
  4. To reinstall, the tapered end of the drain pan must be inserted on top of the drain pan holder at rear.
    • Tapered end with cut corners are placed toward the rear of the unit on the wire support bracket. The square end of the drain pan is the front.
  5. Push the front of the drain pan up until the top front flange engages the tab in the kickplate support.

For all refrigerator and all freezer models, to remove a drain pan:

  1. Remove lower grille section
  2. Remove the kickplate
  3. Push the drain pan up and out from underneath.
  4. To reinstall, tilt the pan to set it back down into place.

Drain pan may be difficult to remove due to tubing that is in front of the drain pan. Clean the drain pan out with a turkey baster if the pan is too difficult to remove.
