Sub-Zero Classic Series Crisper Shelf Removal and Installation


  • How to remove the Classic (formerly Built-In) (BI) crisper shelf
  • Can the BI crisper shelf be installed backwards?
  • Install the BI shelf above the crisper drawers


The Classic (formerly Built-In) Series crisper glass shelf rests on shelf standoffs that are mounted to the refrigerator side walls.

  • It is not possible to install the shelf backwards.
  • The channels on the bottom of the shelf will not line up with the standoffs if it is in backwards.
  • The shelf will sit down on to the standoffs and will not move when properly installed.

    To remove the crisper glass shelf:

    1. Lift shelf straight up off the standoffs.
    2. Pull shelf forward and out of compartment.
      • If door is stopped at 90°, the shelf may need to be taken out at an angle.
      • Removing the door shelves will help in removal.
      • For the French door model, drawer slides may need to be pushed back manually to provide sufficient clearance for removal.
    3. To install, set the shelf back on to the shelf standoffs.
