Classic (BI) Grille Stuck Open


  • The grille on a Classic (BI) Series refrigeration unit is stuck open
  • How do you unlock the grille on a BI?
  • Why will not the BI grille close?


Classic Series (BI) grilles prior to serial # 4100000 contains two black double locking tabs, one on each hinge of the grille.

  • The tabs lock the grille when fully opened.
  • BI models after serial # 4100000 have a hinge system without the black tabs.
  • For either grille style, to close the grille, firmly force the grille down.
  • If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
