Prepare The Installation Site
Your counter-depth refrigerator is designed to be part of a built-in kitchen cabinet
system. Be sure to coordinate site preparation and installation with your kitchen
contractor.
Include these minimum guidelines in your site preparation:
• Choose a place near a grounded electrical outlet.
• Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
• Avoid direct sunlight and close proximity to a range, dishwasher or other
heat source.
• Floor should be level and able to support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• The refrigerator's Ice & Water Dispenser requires water supply access.
• Plan for easy access to counter tops when removing food.
• For complete access to drawers and freezer baskets, doors must be able to
fully open.
Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper air circulation, and
plumbing and electrical connections:
Sides & Top: 3/8 inch
Rear: 1 inch

Transport Unpackaged Refrigerator To Site
By now, you have already removed your refrigerator's shipping carton. You may
still need to use a hand truck to move it through close spaces or entrances. If the
refrigerator is larger than an entrance, consider two options:
• Remove the entrance door if one exists.
• Remove the refrigerator doors (see how in your Use & Care Guide).
When using a hand truck:
• Load refrigerator from side of cabinet only.
• Do not run retaining straps over handles.
• Do not over-tighten retaining straps.

• All four corners of the cabinet must rest firmly
on the floor.
• The cabinet should be level at the front and rear.
• The sides should tilt ¼-inch (6 mm) from front to back
(to ensure that doors close and seal properly).
• Doors should align with each other and be level.
All of these conditions can be met by raising or lowering the

adjustable front rollers.
To adjust the front rollers:
1 Open both doors and remove the toe grille by
unscrewing its two mounting screws and gently pulling
forward (see illustration).
2 Close the doors and use a flat-blade screwdriver or 3/
8-inch socket wrench to raise or lower the front rollers.
3 Ensure both doors are bind-free with their seals
touching the cabinet on all four sides.
4 Replace the toe grille by fitting it into place and
refastening its mounting screws.

Problems? Try These Suggestions
Operation problems are possible if any of the installation tasks are not completed. Here is a list of things to check
for:
• Is the refrigerator's power cord plugged in?
• Is the refrigerator connected to the household water supply?
• If you had to remove the refrigerator and freezer doors, did you reattach water and power connectors at the
door hinges? (See the Use & Care Guide for detailed instructions on removing and replacing doors.)
• Is the ice maker power switch turned On?
Other possibilities to check:
• Is the power to the receptacle turned on?
• Is the water filter above the fresh food compartment fully seated (see Use & Care Guide for details)?
If you still have operation problems after checking these suggestions, please see the "Solutions To Common
Problems" section in your Use & Care Guide.
