Custom Overlay Panels
(A)
Grille Panel
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-inch
thickness, and a 1/4-inch backer panel. (see page 4)

Use counter sink screws for attaching the backer panel to
the front panel.
On 42” custom panels watch location of handle mounting
due to under cut of front panel.
For freezer dispenser front panels, remove fountain trim
and tape to the backside of the backer panel. Note recycle
symbol should be visible and located at the bottom.
You may want to remove any additional material on the
backer panel when used in conjunction with a front panel.
Remove 1/32” on thickness and 1/2” wide of material on
the inside surface of the backer panel. This will help ease
assembly of the panel assembly onto the door.

use an adapter. Do not us an extension cord. Failure to do so
can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
A 115VAC, 60 Hz, 15 Amp circuit breaker and electrical supply are
required. A separate dedicated non-GFCI circuit, servicing only
this appliance, is required.
Your Dacor® Built-In refrigerator is equipped with a 40” (1016mm)
3-prong grounded power cord, which must be plugged into a
3-prong grounding-type non-GFCI wall receptacle. Follow the
National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances when
installing the receptacle. See “Rough-In Dimensions” for location

All installations must meet local plumbing code
requirements.
◊
Connect to 1/4” (6mm) copper line to the house cold fresh
water supply.
◊
Use a shut off valve between the refrigerator and supply.
The shut off valve should be a drilled saddle valve.
◊
Do not use a self-tapping valve which reduces water flow
and clogs more easily.
◊
Route the water line within 3-1/2” (89mm) of the rear wall
and no higher than 3” (76mm) from the floor.

when not completely installed, Keep doors taped closed until
refrigerator is completely installed. Use two or more people to
move and install refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in death
or serious injury.
Anti-Tip Blocking
Blocking the Refrigerator
If there is a solid sofit or ceiling above the unit and the clearance
is 1” (25mm) or less you will not need to block the unit. For
installations with clearances of more than 1” (25mm), you must
use the anti-tipping 2x4 and brackets provided.
IMPORTANT:
◊
Do not remove the protective film until the refrigerator is in
its operating position.
1.
Uncrate the refrigerator.
2.
Remove the lower shipping bolts and brackets.
3.
Slide the unit off of the crate base.
4. Remove and save the lower kick plate, anti-tip brackets and
mounting hardware.

More than 1” clearance:
Use the anti-tip kit provided with the shipping crate.
1.
Locate and mark the 2 wall studs behind the refrigerator.
2.
Mark where the “L” brackets and the 2x4 will be located and
drill two 1/8” pilot holes
3.
Locate proper height to clear the unit. The space between
the top of the unit and the bottom of the wood block must
not exceed 1/4”.

Place an appliance dolly under the freezer side of the
refrigerator. Be sure to protect the side trims and handles.
Place the corner post from the packing materials over the
trims and handles as appropriate. Carefully tighten the strap.
NOTE: Avoid damaging water valves and water lines in front and
back of cabinet.
6.
Place protective material on the floor when rolling the dolly
and refrigerator into the house. Move the unit close to the
built-in opening
Installation Instructions
Water Line Connection
◊
Before attaching the copper tubing to the unit, flush at least
2qt (1.9L) of water through the copper tubing into a bucket to
get rid of any particles in the water line.
Level Unit
◊
Slide the unit in place and raise the front and rear levelers
until the unit touches the brackets. (Use a 3/8” socket to
raise and lower the unit.)
◊
Check for leaks around the saddle valve. Do not overtighten
the clamp or sleeve. This will crush the copper tubing.
◊
Check to see whether the refrigerator is level left to right, by
opening the doors and place a level on top of the refrigerator
frame as shown.
◊
Make connection to the refrigerator.
◊
Turn shutoff valve ON.
◊
Check for leaks, Tighten any nuts or connections (including
connections at the valve) that leak.
◊
Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the
refrigerator is level from left to right.
◊
Check to see whether the refrigerator is level from front to
back, by placing the level(s) on the shelf or shelves.
◊
Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the
refrigerator is level from front to rear.

Installation Instructions
Install Custom Panels
Panel Installation
Before you begin installing panels, refer to the “Custom Panel
Specifications” for overlay models and verify that you are working
with the panel design called for in your installation. If you have
chosen the stainless steel design, your refrigerator has been
shipped complete with a finished stainless steel front. It will not be
necessary to install panels or handle hardware.
Be aware that panels used on refrigerators with the 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 on page 6.
Panel Installation for Dispenser Models
1.
Power switch needs to be off. Switch located in machine
compartment area (see User Guide).
2.
Remove magnetic strip on door trim. Use of tape may be
required removing the magnetic strip.
3.
Remove four Phillips screws to remove door trim.
(Refer to numbered illustrations for steps 4-10)
4.
Remove the spill
tray grille from the
fountain.
IMPORTANT: The weight of each panel cannot exceed 50lbs
(23kg).The grille panel weight cannot exceed 10lbs (5kg).
To install overlay panels, the door trim must be removed. The trim
screws are hidden by a magnet backed trim molding. Remove
the molding by using the adhesive side of packing tape on the
magnetic backed molding to pull it away from the trim and expose
the trim screws. The molding will bend at the center so that you
can remove it. See illustration below.

With a phillips screwdriver, remove the trim from the freezer and
refrigerator doors. Slide the panel into the frame on the door. With
the panel in position, replace the trim. Be sure that the panel is
inserted completely into the channel for proper fit and alignment.
Replace the trim molding by inserting the top, then the bottom into
the trim channel. Release the middle and set the magnets.
Remove the two
#15 Torx long plastic
screws that retain
the fountain control
panel. (Longer
screws). Slide control

Open the freezer door
and slide panel onto
the door.
WARNING – Do not exceed the panel dimensions shown in the chart on
page 4 for the grille panel. If the decorator panel is larger than specified,
it may restrict the airflow to the compressor and condenser area, which
may cause the unit to function improperly.
IMPORTANT: When attaching a raised wood panel of 1/2” or
thicker secure the raised panel to the back of the grille cover
frame. Use 4 #8 or similar screws.

with the mounting
holes in the door
panel. Reverse

collar screws from the
fountain escutcheon
collar)

Check to make sure the doors are properly aligned. If not, the
door hinges will have to be adjusted. Remove the two small
shipping screws from the top and bottom hinge as shown below.
Next, using a #25 torx screwdriver, loosen the torx head screws
in the top and bottom hinge. Loosen the torx head screws only
slightly, so that the door will remain in position as you adjust it.
You will now be able to move the door to the left or right. Once
the adjustments are made, tighten the torx head screws - do not
put the shipping screws back.
Installation Instructions
Side Panel Installation
If using side panels with the Dacor® Built-In Refrigerator,
they will need to be 1/4-inch thick. Slide the panel into
position and secure with screws indicated by the shaded

DANGER
To reduce risk of injury or death, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
IMPORTANT: Child entrapment and
suffocation are not problems of the
past. Junked or abandoned
refrigerators are still dangerous –
even if they sit out for “just a few
days.” If you are getting rid of your
old refrigerator, please follow the
instructions below to help prevent
accidents.
Before you throw away your old
refrigerator or freezer:
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so
children may not easily climb inside.
