Replace UC-24 Undercounter Refrigeration or UW-24 Undercounter Wine Storage with DEU2450 Designer Undercounter


  • Are the opening size, electrical requirements, water location, and panels the same for UC and DEU models?
  • Do panels transfer from an old unit to a new unit?
  • Can a Designer Undercounter DEU Wine Storage unit replace a UW Undercounter Wine Storage unit?
  • UC compatibility with DEU units
  • Replace UW-24 with DEU2450W
  • Is there a DEU replacement unit for the UC-15I?


UC-24 Undercounter and UW-24 Undercounter Wine models use the same opening dimensions as 24" DEU units.

  • Note that even though DEU units are slightly taller than UC and UW units, the opening height of 34.5" is still the same.
  • There is currently no DEU replacement for the UC-15I ice maker unit.


Opening Size

Electrical Requirements

Water Requirements

  • Opening dimensions are the same for single installations.
  • Cabinet modifications may be necessary in dual installations, as the old units are slightly wider.
  • Two UC models installed together require an opening width of 48.5", whereas two DEU units installed together require an opening of 48".
  • Change Needed
  • The existing electrical location for UC-24 and UW-24 models is in a different location than suggested for DEU models.
  • Water locations may need to move. 


  • Panels from UC and UW units cannot be used on new DEU units.
