Installation

Installing the Wine Cooler / Beverage Center

Your Electrolux wine cooler / beverage center has been designed for either free-standing or built-in installation. When built-in, your wine cooler does not require additional air space for top, sides or rear. In either case, the front grille must NOT be obstructed.

NOTE

To ease unit installation and removal, it is recommended that the cabinet rough opening dimensions be increased by at least

¼

inch over the dimensions given for your unit.

NOTE

All units require zero clearance when installed flush with a cabinet or wall. Electrolux stainless steel models require a minimum 2

⁷⁄₈ inch handle clearance when installed against a wall or cabinet that extends beyond the front edge of the unit.
