Replace Model 736 with Model IT-36

Topics:

  • Are the opening size, electrical requirements, water location, and panels the same for model 736TR, 736TFI, or 736TCI and model IT-36R(ID) or IT-36CI(ID)?
  • Do panels transfer from an old unit to a new unit?
  • Can panels be reused on a new unit?
  • Is there a direct product replacement for models 736TR, 736TFI, or 736TCI?
  • 736 compatibility

Answer:

Sub-Zero does not make a direct product replacement for models 736TR, 736TFI, or 736TCI.

  • The Designer (formerly Integrated) products are not the same size.
  • Changing from a 700 Series to a new product requires modifications.
  • Similar units are IT-36R(ID) and IT-36CI(ID).

Planning

Opening Size

Electrical Requirements

Water Requirements

  • Height of the required opening is different.
  • 736: 80" H
  • IT-36: 84" H
  • Width and depth of the required opening is the same.
  • Electrical modifications are necessary.
  • Water modifications are necessary.

Panels

  • Stainless steel door and drawer panels, regardless of height, from a 736 unit will not transfer over to an IT-36 unit.
  • Custom door panels from model 736TR, 736TFI, or 736TCI will not fit replacement models IT-36R(ID) or IT-36CI(ID).
  • Custom door panels from a 736 unit made to fit an 84" high opening can fit the new models if the door panels are redrilled for the new style panel brackets.
  • Custom drawer panels from a 736 unit can fit the new models if the drawer panels are redrilled for the new style panel brackets.
  • When reusing panels, use the installation guide and the panel template to determine where to drill the new holes on the old panels.
