THE JADE ™ BUILT-IN REFRIGERATOR
The Jade™ built-in refrigerator is the new choice in built-in
refrigeration excellence for discriminating homeowners — a choice
that’s backed by the solid reputation of Jade as a leader in the
development of innovative kitchen solutions. Now Jade continues
that tradition with a built-in refrigerator that is setting new
standards in style, storage and performance.
Personalization is the guiding principle behind every aspect of
the Jade™ built-in refrigerator design, from its variety of exterior
styling possibilities, to adaptable choices in interior storage, to
performance that exceeds expectations. It all begins with these
distinct styling options — our versatile overlay model featuring the
homeowner’s choice of custom panels and handles or our elegant
framed model featuring custom panels offset by sleek trim and
matching handles. Exterior customization continues with your
client’s choice of a dispenser or nondispenser model.
Adaptable interior storage enables the client to create and
recreate the space inside the refrigerator with ease. Adjustable
shelves and bins.
When it comes to performance, the Jade™ built-in refrigerator excels. The key to its superb performance edge is our
Professional Temperature Management™ System. This sophisticated multi-component system is highlighted by our variablespeed compressor and Optifresh™ storage drawers, two features
which help ensure precise temperatures for outstanding food
preservation.
that provide the best insulation and rigidity possible. A foursquare leveling system allows for each corner of the refrigerator
to be adjusted from the front of the unit for easier and more
precise leveling. And the acoustic design of our Ultra-Quiet sound
package ensures incredibly quiet performance.
You’ll also find that our built-in refrigerator is backed by one of
the best warranties in the industry. The Jade™ built-in refrigerator warranty provides parts and labor coverage for a full
three years from the original Purchase date. A five-year parts
and labor warranty and a six-through twelve-year parts warranty
covers major refrigeration components including the compressor,
evaporator, condenser, drier and connecting tubing.
This Design Guide outlines the unique features of the Jade™
built-in refrigerator and provides general guidelines for a smooth
installation process. Complete installation instructions are
shipped with each unit. Refer to these instructions when
preparing and installing all Jade® products. Should you have
unique design considerations or installation questions, you can

arrives at the installation site, make sure the installer checks the
shipment carefully.
Each of the three design choices — stainless steel, overlay and framed — has distinct installation requirements, which means it is crucial
that the unit delivered matches your space and planning requirements. The shipping carton will be labeled with a model number that
will describe exactly the size, design, handle style, color and whether the unit is a dispenser or nondispenser model. Note that the 4th
position of the model number indicates the different styles. (See chart below for model number guide.)
Installation instructions are shipped with each unit. Follow those instructions when preparing the space, uncrating the unit, and when
installing any Jade™ built-in refrigerator. If you cannot locate the installation instructions, call Jade Customer Assistance toll-free at 1800-794-5233 (U.S. and Canada). Or visit the Customer Service section of www.jadeappliances.com to download complete instructions

IN STAL L AT I O N G U I DE – GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
Even though Jade™ built-in refrigerators are available in a wide
range of design styles and configurations, the basic installation
planning information for all models has things in common. After
the decision has been made to install a Jade™ built-in refrigerator, be sure to review the installation requirements for the model
design chosen.
Make sure the opening where the unit will be installed is
properly prepared. Refer to Figure 1. Also check placements
for the electrical outlet and water line as shown in Figure 1.

Plumbing Requirements
• Rough in the water line for the location (FIG. 1).
• Connect a 1⁄4" (0.64 cm) copper line to the house water supply
in compliance with local codes and ordinances.
• Use a shutoff valve between the refrigerator and water
supply. The shutoff should be a drilled saddle valve. Do not
use a self-tapping valve.
• The icemaker operates on 30 — 120 PSI.
• Route the water line within 1⁄2" (1.3cm) of the wall and no higher
than 3" (7.6 cm) from the floor. Allow at least 3' (0.91 m) of excess
copper tubing outside the wall for easy connection to the
water valve.
IMPORTANT TIP: In homes with a reverse-osmosis water
treatment system, remove the water inlet connector from
the yellow valve and attach to the blue valve. Make sure the
water filter bypass plug is in place.

Electrical Connection
This appliance is designed to operate on a normal 115 volt, 15 amp,
60 cycle line. There should be a separate, grounded circuit serving
this appliance only. Do not use an extension cord. Do not use any
device that will alter the electrical performance of this appliance.
For the placement of the electrical outlet, refer to Figure 1. Do not
use a ground fault circuit interrupter.
7.62 cm
60.96 cm
Uncrating The Unit
Uncrate the unit. Remove the lower shipping bolts and brackets.
Slide the unit off of the crate base. Remove and save the
7.62 cm
lower toe kickplate, anti-tipping brackets and mounting hardware
(FIG. 2a). Remove the upper cover (this will help when moving the
unit) (FIG. 2b).
For the door to open properly, it must be able to open at least
90 degrees. For installation in a corner, a 2" (5.1cm) filler strip is
required to ensure the 90-degree opening. Be sure to add the
filler strip width to your finished rough-in dimension.
The floor under the refrigerator has to be level with the
surrounding floor. To protect the floor when moving the refrigerator, place cardboard or a carpet remnant with the backing placed
up on the floor.
FIG. 2a
IMPORTANT TIP: Refer to the illustrations at the end of this
section for details on door openings and filler-size alternatives.

IN STAL L AT I O N G U I DE – PROPER POSITIONING
Blocking and/or Anchoring the Refrigerator
If there is a solid soffit above the unit and the clearance is 1"
(2.5 cm) or less, you will not need to block the unit. For installations
with clearances of more than 1" (FIG. 3), you must use the anti-tipping 2 x 4 and brackets provided (FIG. 4).
More than 1" (2.5 cm) Clearance:
Use the anti-tipping kit provided with the shipping crate. Locate
and mark the two wall studs behind the unit. Mark where the
"L" brackets and 2 x 4 will be located and drill two 1⁄8" pilot holes.
Locate the proper height to clear the unit. The space between the
top of the unit and bottom of the wood block must not exceed
1
⁄4" (0.6 cm). Secure the L brackets into the wall studs using the
provided screws ( 1 ). Make sure the screws will extend 7⁄8" (2.2cm)
into the wall studs. Align the pilot holes with the L brackets and
secure the 2 x 4 with the screws provided ( 2 , 3 ).
FIG. 3
Adjusting Door Hinges
FIG. 4
Check to make sure the doors are properly adjusted. If not,
adjust the top and bottom hinges. The hinges are slotted for
side-to-side movement. First, remove the small Phillips screw
on the door hinge, which is inboard on the hinge, and throw
it away. Adjust the upper and lower hinges by loosening the
three large Torx screws. Tighten the screws after the doors are
adjusted. Door handles can be adjusted to level top handle
trim. The doors are slotted for handle alignment.

INSTAL L AT I O N G U I DE – P ROPER POSITIONING
Leveling
Slide the unit in place and raise the front and rear
levelers until the unit touches the brackets. Use a
3
⁄8" socket for raising and lowering the unit. On each
wheel housing, there are two 3⁄8" hex bolts. On the
left side, the outside bolt will move the rear leveler
and the inside bolt will move the front leveler. On
the right side, the outside bolt will move the front
leveler and the inside bolt will move the rear leveler
(FIG. 5). The front levelers must be in contact with
the floor. To raise the leveling legs, turn the hex
screw counterclockwise. Place level on lower ledge
of the machine compartment. Level the unit front to
back and side to side to prevent tipping of the unit
(FIG. 4). Install the kickplate. The kickplate must be
removable to allow access to the water valves. In
the machine compartment there is an on/off power
switch. Make sure the switch is in the ON position
and switch lever is up. Install the upper cover.
FIG. 5
1 1/4" (3.2 cm) vertical adjustment for leveling and height adjustments.
Optional: If you are attaching
the unit to cabinetry, drill three 3⁄16"
holes through both outer trims. Drill 1⁄8"
pilot holes into the cabinetry. Install screws.
Additionally, if the depth/height of opening is excessive, use the steel
hanger strap. Double over strap at the anchor points to secure cabinet.

If the customer has chosen a stainless steel model, it will arrive complete with wrapped stainless steel doors and stainless steel towel bar
handles. You will not have to install panels. Jade offers 42" and 48" dispenser and nondispenser models with the stainless steel design.
Framed or overlay models require the installation of custom or decorative panels to give the refrigerator the personalized look the
consumer has chosen for the kitchen. Framed models are shipped with full-length extended handles (see below). Overlay models are
designed to use the custom hardware the consumer has chosen separately; handles are not included with this type of product.

B. Decorator Panel Specifications for Framed Models
Decorator panels for framed models cover the door trim for an
attractive, seamless look that flows into the overall design of the
room. Framed models include full-length extruded handles, unlike
overlay models. Attention must be paid
to hand clearance, or the depth of
space between the decorator panel and
the built-in handle. (See figures 12 and 13
on page 17 for more information.)
This application is often accomplished
by using three panels: the decorative
front panel, a spacer panel of .10" (2.5
cm) thickness and a 1/4" (0.6 cm) backer
panel. Other options to achieve this
look (such as using one panel routed for
different dimensions) may be available
from your cabinet manufacturer.
Jade offers 42" and 48" dispenser and
nondispenser models with the framed
design.

Overlay Models
The decorator panels for overlay models cover the door trim for an attractive, seamless look that flows into the overall design of the
room. This application is often accomplished by using three panels: the decorative front panel, a spacer panel of .10" (2.5 mm) thickness,
and a 1⁄4" (0.6 cm) backer panel. Other options to achieve this look (such as using one panel routed for different dimensions) may be
available from your cabinet manufacturer.
Jade offers 42" and 48" dispenser and nondispenser models with the overlay design.

INSTALLATION GUIDE – DECORATOR PANELS
Installing Decorator Panels
Be aware that panels used on refrigerators with the framed or overlay design have the potential for coming into contact with adjacent
cabinets and/or countertops when the refrigerator doors are opened. You will want to be mindful of the surrounding cabinetry and
space limitations when planning for decorator panels.
Refer to the 90° door stop information in Figure 18 on page 21.
Grille Panels
A decorator grille panel that matches the decorator door panels
! CAUTION. Do not exceed the panel dimensions shown in the
charts on pages 15 and 16 for the grille panel. If the decorator
may be used to replace the standard grille shipped on the
panel is larger than specified, it may restrict the airflow to the
unit. This allows the refrigerator to integrate completely into
compressor and condenser area, which may cause the unit to
the surrounding cabinetry.
function improperly.
Installation of Panels (Framed or Overlay Models)
1. Begin by removing the door handle or trim piece. A magnetic-backed molding hides the handle or overlay trim screws. Use the adhesive
side of the packaging tape on the magnetic-backed molding to pull it away from door (FIG. 10a).
2. Remove the screws with a Phillips screwdriver (FIG. 10b). Slide the panel into position. The panel needs to be under the trim. Install the
handle. Replace the molding in the channel and reset the magnetic-backed molding.
3. To install the panel on the grille, remove the screws on the top and bottom of the upper cover (FIG. 10c). DO NOT REMOVE the foam.
4. Slide the panel into place and replace screws (FIG. 10d). If the thickness of the panel is less than a 1/4" (0.6 cm), back it up with a sheet of shim
material to obtain 1/4" (0.6 cm) thickness. Cardboard backer is recommended for stainless steel application. For panel size, refer to pages
9 — 13.
! CAUTION
Do not drive screws or sharp objects into door panels.

Do not pinch door seal when reinstalling handle.

Handle Considerations for Overlay Models
If the customer has specified a Jade™ built-in refrigerator overlay model, the unit will be shipped without
handle hardware. Handle hardware that the customer has specified to match the overall decorating scheme must
be provided separately at the job site.
Before installing the custom panel assembly, the custom
handle hardware must be installed. It is recommended that
handles with larger D-style pulls be used. If the screws that
are used have thick heads, the screws will need to be
countersunk into the panel before it is put into place.
IMPORTANT TIP: Jade advises that single-pull knobs not
be used on built-in refrigerator overlay models.
