Relocate Sub-Zero Sealed System Components


  • Can the compressor or condenser be moved off a Sub-Zero to reduce noise?
  • Is it possible to relocate the compressor or condenser?
  • What are the specifications for moving a compressor or condenser from a Sub-Zero to another room?
  • Can the sealed system be installed in a separate location from the Sub-Zero?


Sub-Zero does not recommend or support permanent relocation of sealed system components.

  • In some circumstances, it is necessary to temporarily remove the unit's compressor(s) and condenser to move a Sub-Zero into a home. Refer to Sub-Zero Decrease Height to Move Product for more information.
  • If the customer wants to relocate the sealed system components:
    • Consult with a qualified HVAC technician for suggestions.
    • Sub-Zero does not provide any advice on tubing length, diameter, or refrigerant charge.
    • Sub-Zero will not guarantee unit performance if sealed system components are relocated.
    • Any alteration or relocation of sealed system components will void any product warranty related to the sealed system or issues resulting from a change to the unit's original manufactured configuration.
