The cabinet may not rest against a wall on
its hinged side. When placing the cabinet
on a carpet or on a wooden floor you should
adjust it once more after some time as the
cabinet might settle in soft foundati­ons.

If you want to build the appliance into a
cupboard you must consider 3 factors:
1. There must be space above the appliance in order to make the cooling
system work satisfactorily.
2. When the door is opened the appliance
takes up more room in the width and
therefore the door must either be placed
outside the cupboard or there must be
a space of at least 1,5 cm at the hinge
3. The distance to the wall at the hinge side
must be of a sufficient size.
Furthermore is it possible to build together
the appliance and another cabinet.
