Customer Question
I am upgrading my...

I am upgrading my kitchen, bought a 500 series sub zero with panel doors. I removed them and want to install handles but am afraid to drill into the two front doors and am wondering if it is okay to do so. Do you happen to know? Thanks for your time.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Sub-Zero is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Yes 2014

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. My dad says epoxy will work but I think it may not hold

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The exact model number is *****

Can’t you just tell me if there is any reason that I shouldn’t drill into my sub zero? Are there important Freon filled tubes that I could mistakenly hit and have a didsastrrbin my hands
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 6 months ago

Of course, sorry for the confusion. There are no refrigerant lines in the doors.
