Handle the panel carefully. Set the panel in a clean, dry place where it won't be damaged.

A Sub-Zero refrigerator door's decorative front cabinet panel is inserted in a channel. Removing the panel requires removing the appliance's handles first. Keeping in line with the refrigerator's built-in appearance, the handles' screws are hidden behind magnetized trim molding. Once the screws and handles are removed, the panel is accessible and can be slid from the channel.


Step 1

Press a piece of tape onto the middle of the magnetized trim molding that hides the handles' screws. Pull back the tape. Grip the trim molding, and pull it off the refrigerator's frame.

Step 2

Remove the screws that hold the handles in place. Take off the handles, and set them aside.

Step 3

Grip one end of the cabinet panel, and slide the panel sideways through the channel's open end.
