Sub-Zero recommends the water line shut off valve be located in an easily accessible location.

  • There is no internal water supply shut off valve on a Sub-Zero unit.
  • Shut off valves are installed on the water line to the unit by a plumber.
  • The water line can be located under the unit, behind the kickplate.
  • An adjacent cabinet, under a nearby sink, or in the basement are all easily accessible locations.
  • A water shut off valve that is located behind the unit may not be accessible. If this is the case it may be necessary to shut off the house main supply if the line leading to the Sub-Zero is leaking.
