The units are designed to operate between 50°F (10°C) and 100°F
(37°C). High ambient temperatures (100°F [37°C] or higher) may
reduce the unit’s ability to reach low temperatures and may also
reduce the ice production rate for those models with icemakers.
For best performance, keep the unit out of direct sunlight and away
from heat generating equipment.
In climates where high humidity and dew points are present,
condensation may appear on outside surfaces. This is considered
normal. The condensation will evaporate when the humidity drops.
2115RSOD & 2175SOD Models: For best performance and life
outdoors, place under a counter or provide shelter of some kind.

excessive frost may form in the interior.
IMPORTANT
• Properly aligned, the door’s gasket should be firmly in
contact with the cabinet all the way around the door
(no gaps). Carefully examine the door’s gasket to ensure
that it is firmly in contact with the cabinet. Also make
sure the door gasket is not pinched on the hinge side of
the door.
• The door will not be flush with the top of the cabinet.

8 Wood Trim Finishing
Staining and final finish application:
IMPORTANT
WARNING
To prevent permanent damage to the inner liner of the
unit, the wire rack wood trim MUST be removed from
the unit for staining and/or finishing. Allow stain/finish
to dry thoroughly (at least 24 hours) in accordance with
the stain/finish manufacturer’s instructions, prior to reinstalling the wood trim inside the cabinet of the unit.
Failure to do so may cause the inner liner of the unit to
have a permanent odor, which is not covered by the
warranty.
IMPORTANT
• Your model may contain an electronic display panel in
the lowest level trim piece. After removing the trim
screws and gently pulling the trim from its location, a
wiring harness connector will become visible. Unplug
the connector and remove the trim from the interior.
• Glass in door is tinted. Stain may look darker when
door is closed.
Removing Wire Racks
1. Grasp the end of the rack, and gently slide it out until it stops.
2. Remove any bottles stored on the rack.
3. Press the left rack release lever (see above) down, and at the
same time, lift the corresponding right rack release lever up, and
pull the rack out until it is free of the tracks and the cabinet.
4. Do not remove the track side rails from the cabinet.
To insert a rack in the cabinet:
DO NOT use oil-based stains on wood trim. Vapors from
oil-based stains will permanently penetrate the liner and
will not dissipate over time.
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and
remove the trim from the cabinet interior.
2. Lightly sand and clean wood.
3. Apply Minwax® Water-Based Wood Stain to wood with a
synthetic bristle brush or a foam applicator. Allow stain to
penetrate about three minutes. Before the stain is dry, take a
stain dampened rag and remove any excess stain remaining.
Wipe towards the grain with medium pressure to achieve the
desired stain color.
4. After two hours, repeat step 2. This will even out the color of
the wood.
5. Allow stain to dry for a minimum of three hours before applying
the final finish.
6. If desired, sand the wood with very fine sandpaper to smooth
the surface after staining.
7. Remove all dust from the wood, and apply one coat of Minwax®
Polycrylic® Protective Finish using a synthetic bristle brush to
the wood. Apply this finish in a thin coat following towards the
grain. Apply the finish to the back and sides of the wood first,
and allow it to dry for two hours. Apply the finish to the front
side of the wood next, and allow it to dry for two hours. Sand
with very fine 220 grit sandpaper. Apply two morel coats of
finish in the same manner, but do not sand the trim after applying
the final third coat.
8. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling the
trim to the cabinet interior parts.
Final finish-only application:
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and
remove the trim.
2. Lightly scruff sand the wood trim with 280 or finer grit
sandpaper.
3. Remove sanding dust with a clean, dry cloth.
1. Align the left and right rack channels with the tracks in the
cabinet, and ensuring an even track engagement on both sides,
gently push the rack into the cabinet until it stops.
Before reloading the rack, ensure proper operation of the travel
stops in the left and right track rails by pulling the rack out gently
until it completely stops.
12
4. The factory-applied seal is compatible with almost all finishes. A
low odor, water clean up, quick-drying finish such as Minwax®
Polycrylic® Protective Finish is recommended (Minwax®
Polycrylic® is an ultra fast-drying water-based finish). Apply a
thin coat of a clear, protective finish, following the container
label directions.
5. Lightly sand and reapply if desired.
Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling
the trim to the cabinet interior parts.

Prepare The New Overlay Panel
IMPORTANT
The overlay door panel must not weigh more than 20 lbs.
The thickness of the door panel must be 3/4”
1. Place a towel, or similar, soft non-marking material out on a flat
clean surface. Be sure the material is large enough to have the
wood panel not touch the hard mating surface.
2. Lay the wood panel out with the front side of the wood facing
down.
3. Cut the foam tape in to four pieces, two pieces the width of the
overlay and two pieces the height of the overlay.
4. Remove adhesive protection strip from one piece of the cut
foam and align the edge of the foam tape to the inside edge of
the overlay as shown, adhering the foam tape to the overlay. See
Below
2. Carefully lay the door over the wood panel, making sure door is
oriented correctly (top of door with top of wood overlay).
3. Pull door gasket out of the groove completely. Start in the
middle and pull outward, moving towards the corners (See
Below). This may take some force, but be careful not to cut or
rip the gasket.
5. Trim each piece of tape immediately after applying it to the
overlay. Do not allow any overlapping of the foam tape. Damage
to the overlay can occur is the foam tape is not trimmed
correctly.
6. If required, attach any optional cabinet hardware to the wood
panel at this time. If an optional cabinet handle is installed, make
sure the mounting screw heads are below (countersunk) the
back surface of the overlay.
Note: After attaching the optional cabinet hardware, additional
supports may be needed to keep panel flat for next steps.
Attaching the overlay panel
1. Remove the top hinge pivot pin with a Phillips screwdriver and
lift the door off bottom hinge pin. Be careful not to lose the
door closer insert sets. Save pivot pin for use later. See figure
in next column.

4. After the gasket has been removed, place it on a clean, flat
surface.
5. Secure the door to the back of the wood overlay using tape on
all four corners. Make sure all four edges are aligned. (See figure
on next page)

10. Position door over closer. Be sure the door hinge plate holes
align with the bosses on the closer (see below). Failure to do so
will result in the door not sitting in the proper position and door
will not align correctly. (Sometimes it is helpful to open the door
180° to have the closer and pivot align correctly).
11. Holding the door in the closed position, install the pivot post
through the top hinge into the top pivot plate. Tighten securely
with a Phillips screwdriver, making sure post is seated fully.
12. Adjusting the door as needed.
Depending on installation
bottom of overlay may NOT
align with bottom of door
7. Attach the door to the overlay using #6x1” wood screws.
IMPORTANT
If you decide to drill pilot holes, remove the wood overlay
from the door, and do not use a drill larger then 7/64”. Be
sure not to drill deeper then 3/8”. The door frame and
wood overlay must be aligned properly or the door will
not operate correctly.
Note: After attaching the wood to the door, double check the
bottom pivot hole location. If the hole in the pivot bracket is
covered by any wood, chase through the hole with a 11/32” drill to
open hole in door panel. DO NOT drill deeper than 1/4”.

1. Plug in the powercord.
Leveling Information
2. Gently push the unit into position. Be careful not to kink the
water supply line or entangle the electrical cord.
It is recommended that the unit is level.
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. Remove the tape from the glass shelves and wipe out the inside
of the unit with a clean, water-dampened cloth.
Relocating the Shelves
Both the glass shelves in the refrigerator and the inner door
shelves can be moved to accommodate your bottles, cans and
containers.

Glass Shelves on Right-Hand Hinge Units
2. If the unit is not level, adjust the feet on the corners of the unit
as necessary (not available in CO29 models).
• Open door fully, grasp shelf firmly, lift front edge slightly, and
pull straight out.
• Choose new location and slide shelf onto the appropriate rib.
Glass Shelves on Left-Hand Hinge Units
• Pull shelf out about 6” to clear the wall’s molded protrusion.
• Tilt right-hand edge of shelf up.
• Keeping at this angle and hugging the right wall, pull the shelf
out.
• Choose new location and insert over ribs, tilting right-hand
edge up. Push in, then lower shelf onto ribs.
Door Shelves
• First pull shelf up at a 45° angle, then straight out (see Figure
39).
Turn Foot to Adjust
3. Check the levelness after each adjustment and repeat the
previous steps until the unit is level.
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.
• Choose new location and line up on bosses. First push straight
in, then down at a 45° angle.
Installation Troubleshooting
Q:
Problem
The door remains open unless it is pushed closed.
A:
Solution
The hinges should be self-closing when the door is open
approximately 8". If this is not the case, make sure the closers are
clean, greased and installed correctly. Also, re-check leveling from
front to back of the unit and readjust if necessary. Make sure that
pivot plate is installed correctly.
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 and water supply line are not
obstructing the installation.
