Sub-Zero Classic Series (BI) Overlay to Framed Conversion

Topics:

  • How to change a Classic (BI) overlay unit to a framed unit
  • Can framed panels and a louvered grille be used on a BI model?
  • Stainless Steel framed panels

Answer:

To convert a Classic Series (BI) unit from overlay to framed, the following are required:

  • A framed handle for each door.
  • A framed louvered grille insert to change the flip-up grille from overlay to framed.

The chart below provides parts needed by model.

  • The louvered grille insert is for 84" finished product heights only.
  • Number in parentheses (x) indicates number of handles included with the part.
  • The screw covers from the overlay door/drawer trim can be reused on the framed handles.
  • To reuse framed panels from an older model on a Classic series product, see Classic Framed Retrofit Kits.

Contact a Factory Certified Parts Distributor to order parts.

Refer to the table below for part numbers.

  • Stainless and White door panels are not available for Glass Door models. A custom panel must be used for these models.
  • External dispenser models also have a Partial Framed Kit accessory, refer to Sub-Zero Classic (BI) Partial Framed Panel Kit for more information and part numbers.
