      1. At the top of the product, open the grille and locate the condenser. 
      2. The Connected Module is located to the left of the condenser.
  2. To pair, see Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Connected Appliance Pairing

Appliance Pairing General Troubleshooting

Pairing Process:

  1. If the appliance does not appear during the pairing process, verify the appliance is not attempting to pair with Bluetooth Only Mode.
    • Bluetooth Only Mode is available only for Legacy Designer Series (IT, IC, ID) units starting with serial number 5959000. All other connected capable appliances use Wi-Fi Connected Mode only.
    • If the appliance is not in Bluetooth Only Mode and still fails to appear, see Sub-Zero Group Owner's App Appliance Missing or Does Not Appear.
  2. If the pairing PIN does not appear, see Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Connected Appliance Does Not Show PIN.
  3. For assistance locating the PIN, see Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Connected Appliance PIN Location.


  1. If issues occur while pairing appliance to home's Wi-Fi, refer to:

Time Zone:

  1. If the time zone is inputting wrong, see Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Time Zone on Connected Products.


  1. If an error code is present, first search for the error code shown to check for specific troubleshooting information. 
  2. If a message appears in the app that says the appliance firmware needs to be updated, see Connected Module Firmware Updates.

Additional Information:

  • There is no limit to the number of appliances that can be connected on the app.
  • If more than one phone is used to connect, the appliance may only be paired to one phone during setup. The second phone can be paired after setup is complete on the first.
  • Products from multiple homes can be connected on the app. However, it is necessary to be within 20 feet of each appliance to do the pairing procedure.
  • Pairing appliances is optional. Appliances do not need to be connected to the internet to be used.
