Hello, in this segment we’re going to show you how to convert your Continental pizza prep or base unit from doors to drawers. To do this you’re going to need the following: a Philips screwdriver, cordless drill with an eighth inch drill bit or a Philips adapter, a putty knife, 4 #10 sheet metal screws, a caulking gun with food grade silicone, a rubber mallet, some five and quarter inch breaker covers, possibly a hack saw. Also a pliers which is not shown to remove the vertical pilaster strips. Open the door and remove the top and bottom hinge screws and set the door to the side. Take the four hinge screws that you removed and place back into the hinge holes. After that is done, remove the shelf, the clips, and the side vertical pilaster strips. Your drawer assembly will consist of the top and bottom drawer, and the cage that holds the drawers. Open the top and bottom drawer, find the locking clip for the slide, slide forward, push down at the back, and remove the top and bottom drawers. Unfortunately, the cage assembly will not fit into the opening without removing the right and left outer breaker cover. To do this, take a putty knife, slide it under the front edge and gently remove the covers and set to the side. You’ll have to fill in the space above the drawers. You’ll need to cut 2 five and one quarter inch breaker covers from the covers you removed the hacksaw or you can order from the factory. Snap in at the back, slide up into the top corners, and tap in place with a rubber mallet. You are now ready to install the drawer cage. Take the drawer cage, lift it up slightly, and slide it into the opening. After the drawer cage is installed, slide it all the way to the back, making sure that it is flush to the front of the cabinet. Once the cage is installed, locate the four mounting holes; take your cordless drill with the eighth inch drill bit, and drill the four holes and secure with the 4 #10 Philips truss head sheet metal screws. Take your caulking gun with the food grade silicone, if you have any gaps or spaces where air can be infiltrated into the cabinet, seal those areas with the silicone. We’re now ready to install the top and bottom drawers. Pull the slides out, insert the drawer into the slides, and push all the way back until the drawer is set properly. Do the same for the top drawer. Once the drawers are installed, take your locking slide clip, slide back, and lock in place. Check the top and bottom drawer for closing and 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.
