• Keep your Stainless unit looking new by cleaning with a good
quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner/polish on a monthly
basis. For best results use Claire Stainless Steel Polish and
Cleaner, which can be purchased from U-Line Corporation
(Part numbers 173348). Frequent cleaning will remove surface
contamination that could lead to rust. Some installations may
require cleaning on a weekly basis.
• Do not clean with steel wool or abrasive pads.
• Do not use cleaners that are not specifically intended
for stainless steel on stainless surfaces (this includes
glass, tile and counter cleaners).
• If any surface discolors or rust appears, clean it quickly with
Bon-Ami or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser and a non-abrasive
cloth. Always clean in the direction of the grain. Always finish
this process with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or
comparable product to prevent further problems.
• Glass surfaces may be cleaned with standard household window
cleaners.
! CAUTION
Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate into the
surface of the stainless steel and complete removal of the
rust may not be possible.

Installation
9 Level & Install
1. Plug in the powercord.
Leveling Information
2. Gently push the unit into position. Be careful to not entangle the
electrical cord.
It is recommended that the unit is level once installed.
1. Use a level to check the levelness of the unit from front to back
and from side to
side. Level should be
placed along top
edge and side edge as
shown.
3. Re-check the leveling, from front to back and side to side. Make
any necessary adjustments. The unit’s top surface should be
approximately 1/8" below the countertop.
4. Install the 6 cabinet mounting screws for the anti-tip bracket.
5. Remove the tape from the glass shelves and wipe out the inside
of the unit with a clean, water-dampened cloth.
Relocating the Shelves
The glass shelves can be moved to accommodate your bottles,
cans and containers.
Glass Shelves
• Open door fully, grasp shelf firmly, lift front edge slightly, and
pull straight out.
• Remove shelf tabs and reposition as necessary.
2. If the unit is not level,
remove grille and adjust feet as necessary. Use included tool to
adjust the height of the rear leveler feet. Turn screw clockwise to
raise the rear foot, counter-clockwise to lower.
• Reinsert shelf into cabinet and set down onto shelf tabs.
• All four shelf tabs must be set to the same height to properly
support the weight of the shelf.
Installation Troubleshooting
3. Check the levelness after each adjustment and repeat the
previous steps until the unit is level.
Q: Problem
The door remains open unless it is pushed closed.
A: Solution

Rear Level Foot
The hinges should be self-closing when the door is open
approximately 8". If this is not the case, make sure nothing is
caught in the hinge closing mechanism. Also, re-check leveling from
front to back of the unit and readjust if necessary. Make sure that
pivot plate is installed correctly.

INSTALLATION TIP
If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cut-out opening,
adjust the rear feet to achieve a total unit rear height of 1/8" less
than the opening’s rear height. Shorten the unit height in the front
by adjusting the front feet. This allows the unit to be gently tipped
into the opening. Readjust the front feet to level the unit after it is
correctly positioned in the opening.
Q: Problem
The custom overlay door was designed to align with the rest of the
cabinet doors, but the unit has crept forward.
A: Solution
Make sure that the electrical cord is not obstructing the
installation.

to develop new ideas and to succeed when there were no clear guidelines or solutions are evident today. The newest
Uihlein generation continues to build upon the family’s innovative legacy at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin based business
by providing continuity and vision from which new designs and technology continue to be born.
Today the complete U-Line product collection includes Ice Makers, Ice Machines, Wine Captain® Models, Combo®
