Protect a Sub-Zero during Renovations


  • Leaving a Sub-Zero running during kitchen renovations

  • How to protect a Sub-Zero during construction


Sub-Zero recommends to turn a unit off, prop open the doors, and cover completely with plastic during a remodel or when the floors are being refinished.

  • If turning the unit off is not possible, the condenser will collect excessive dust.
  • Condenser should be vacuumed after work in the kitchen has been completed.
  • Do not cover the grille area if the unit is on and running, as the compressor area will overheat.

Refer to the product use and care guide for further information.
