Hello, in this segment we’re going to show how to convert your Continental undercounter or sandwich case from a door to a drawer. It’s always recommended to disconnect the power to your cabinet before service or modifications. In this segment you are going to need the following tools: a Phillips screwdriver, or a Philips adapter for the drill, a cordless drill with an eighth inch drill bit, and 6 Philips #8 truss head sheet metal screws as well as a pair of pliers not shown in the video to remove the vertical pilaster strips. Once the power’s been disconnected, open the door and remove the top and bottom hinge screws, set the door to the side, also remove the shelf and the side wall vertical pilaster strips. Take the four hinge screws that you removed, reinsert into the four hinge holes, top and bottom. Your drawer cage assembly will consist of 2 drawers and the cage with the center mullion that holds the drawers. Open the top drawer, slide the locking clip from the slide forward and down the back, and remove the top and bottom drawers and set to the side. Carefully lift up and slide the cage assembly into the door opening. Be sure that the center mullion is flush with the front of the case. Locate the six mounting holes in the cage assembly and take your eighth inch drill and drill into the plastic breaker covers. Insert the 6 Phillips screws into the predrilled mounting holes. Install the top and bottom drawer, locking the slide clip on right and left sides. Open and close the top and bottom drawers making sure they close properly and have a good gasket seal. I hope this information was helpful and if you need additional information, please contact the factory or you can download the operation manuals from our website, www.continentalrefrigerator.com.
