Cleaning and Care

The glass shelves in a Sub-Zero unit are made with tempered glass.

  • Do not place hot pans or containers on Sub-Zero glass shelves. Allow containers to cool until they are only warm to the touch.
  • Condensation or fogging may form on glass shelves if the door is left open for a period of time. This happens more quickly in warm climates or on humid days if the room is not climate controlled. Refer to Moisture or Condensation in Refrigerator for more information.
  • Shelf frame around the glass cannot be removed for cleaning. Replace the shelf if needed. Refer to Cleaning Interior Shelves and Light Diffuser for more information.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Use care when handling glass shelves to prevent breakage or scratching the interior.

CAUTION: Glass shelves should warm to room temperature before immersing in warm water.

Removal and Installation

To remove or adjust a glass shelf:

  1. Tilt up, then lift up and pull out.

To install or reposition:

  1. Insert the shelf in the rails on the back wall.
  2. Lower the front until the shelf locks into position.
