Requires an additional 11" of height for the new model.

The existing electrical location for the 601RG is in a different location than suggested for model BI-36RG.

No change.

The new model door clearance fits if installed near an island. See the Sub-Zero Design Guide for details.


  • Panels from the 601RG will not fit the model BI-36RG. The 601RG panel is too short and narrow.
