In 600 Series models, starting with serial number 1810000, it is possible to disable only one section for cleaning or service purposes.

  • This does not apply to models 601R and 601F.
  • Note: 600 Series prior to 181 SN's can not disable a single zone via the control panel. Would need to disconnect the offending zone's compressor wire (Gray for refer side, Purple for freezer side) at the compressor as well as disable lights and fan at the switches if they want to leave the door(s) open to defrost a zone.
