These installation
instructions are provided
only as a possible customer
option. Electrolux
recommends that you use a
service or kitchen
contracting professional to
install your refrigerator.
1 Prepare The Installation Site
Your counter-depth refrigerator is designed to be part of a built-in kitchen cabinet
system. Be sure to coordinate site preparation and installation with your kitchen
Include these minimum guidelines in your site preparation:
• Choose a place near a grounded electrical outlet.
• Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
• Avoid direct sunlight and close proximity to a range, dishwasher or other
heat source.
• Floor should be level and able to support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• The refrigerator’s Ice & Water Dispenser requires water supply access.
• Plan for easy access to counter tops when removing food.
• For complete access to drawers and freezer baskets, doors must be able to
fully open.
Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper air circulation, and
plumbing and electrical connections:
Sides & Top: 3/8 inch
Rear: 1 inch

Room temperatures below
55°F (13°C) or above
110°F (43°C) will impair
cooling ability of your
refrigerator’s compressor.
2 Transport Unpackaged Refrigerator To Site
By now, you have already removed your refrigerator’s shipping carton. You may
still need to use a hand truck to move it through close spaces or entrances. If the
refrigerator is larger than an entrance, consider two options:
• Remove the entrance door if one exists.
• Remove the refrigerator doors (see how in your Use & Care Guide).
When using a hand truck:
• Load refrigerator from side of cabinet only.
• Do not run retaining straps over handles.
• Do not over-tighten retaining straps.
• Never use refrigerator handles to move the refrigerator.
• Remove tape from doors only after unit is in place.
3 Connect Water Supply
What you will need:
• Access to a cold water line
with pressure of
20-100 psi.
• Copper tubing with ¼-inch
(6.4mm) OD. Length for this
íÜÉ ï
tubing is the distance from
the rear of the refrigerator to your household
water supply line plus 7 feet (2.1 meters).
• A shut-off valve for the connection between your household
water line and the refrigerator supply line.
Do not use a self-piercing shut-off valve.
• A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for the water supply
connection at the rear of your refrigerator.
1 Ensure that the refrigerator is not plugged in.
2 Flush the supply line until water is clear by placing the end of the
copper tube in a sink or bucket and opening the shut-off valve.
3 Unscrew the plastic cap from the water valve inlet at the rear of
your refrigerator. Discard the cap.
4 Slide the brass compression nut, then the ferrule (sleeve) onto
copper tube.
5 Push the copper tube into water valve inlet as far as it will go
(1/4 inch).
6 Slide the ferrule (sleeve) into valve and finger-tighten the
compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a
wrench. Do not over-tighten.
7 Secure the copper tube to your refrigerator’s rear panel with a
steel clamp and screw (see illustration).
8 Coil the excess copper tubing (about 2½ turns) behind your
refrigerator as shown. Arrange coiled tubing to avoid vibration or
wear against other surfaces.
9 Open water supply shut-off valve and tighten any connections
that leak.
Location of these
materials may vary
depending on your
• The ice maker’s fill valve may operate noisily if the household water supply is shut off.
• After ensuring no water leaks exist at any connection, be sure to check for leaks again in 24 hours.
• See your Use & Care Guide for detailed information about setting up and operating the Ice & Water
Dispensing system.
Place In Permanent Position
If possible, use a hand truck to position the refrigerator directly in front of
its cabinet enclosure.
Be careful not to move the refrigerator beyond its water supply (copper
tubing) connections.
Plug in the power cord, and push the refrigerator straight back into
If you are installing your refrigerator without connecting it to a water
supply, make sure the ice maker’s power switch is turned Off (see the
Use & Care Guide for more details).

• Shifting the refrigerator from
side to side may damage
• Do not block the toe grille on
the lower front of your
refrigerator. Sufficient air
circulation is essential for
proper operation.
5 Level Refrigerator & Adjust Doors (if necessary)

may damage flooring.

To avoid property damage:
• Use copper tubing for the water
supply line (plastic tubing is more
likely to leak).
• Ensure water supply complies with
local plumbing codes.
Electrolux Kit #53039117950, available from
your dealer, provides all materials for a water
supply installation, including 25 feet of
copper tubing and full instructions.
Guidelines for final positioning of your refrigerator:
• All four corners of the cabinet must rest firmly
on the floor.
• The cabinet should be level at the front and rear.
• The sides should tilt ¼-inch (6 mm) from front to back
(to ensure that doors close and seal properly).
• Doors should align with each other and be level.
All of these conditions can be met by raising or lowering the
adjustable front rollers.
7 Check Initial System Settings
Your refrigerator includes an ice &
water dispensing system, a digital
temperature control system,
controls to monitor the status of a
water filter, and controls for storage
drawer humidity and temperature.
See the Use & Care Guide to
learn more about the start-up
settings for these controls.
After changing control settings,
wait 24 hours before making
further adjustments.
Problems? Try These Suggestions
Operation problems are possible if any of the installation tasks are not completed. Here is a list of things to check
• Is the refrigerator’s power cord plugged in?
• Is the refrigerator connected to the household water supply?
• If you had to remove the refrigerator and freezer doors, did you reattach water and power connectors at the
door hinges? (See the Use & Care Guide for detailed instructions on removing and replacing doors.)
• Is the ice maker power switch turned On?
Other possibilities to check:
• Is the power to the receptacle turned on?
• Is the water filter above the fresh food compartment fully seated (see Use & Care Guide for details)?
If you still have operation problems after checking these suggestions, please see the “Solutions To Common
Problems” section in your Use & Care Guide.
To adjust the front rollers:
1 Open both doors and remove the toe grille by
unscrewing its two mounting screws and gently pulling
forward (see illustration).
2 Close the doors and use a flat-blade screwdriver or 3/
8-inch socket wrench to raise or lower the front rollers.
3 Ensure both doors are bind-free with their seals
touching the cabinet on all four sides.
4 Replace the toe grille by fitting it into place and
refastening its mounting screws.
6 Remove Internal Shipping Materials
Electrolux uses packing foam and tape to secure the internal parts of your refrigerator for shipping. Once the
refrigerator is in position, you can remove this material.
Turn to other sides for Spanish & French.
The doors are designed to close automatically at
an opening of 20 degrees or less.
