Installation
Installing the Refrigerator
Drawers
WARNING
Your Electrolux refrigerator drawers have been
designed for built-in installation. When built-in, your
refrigerator drawers do not require additional air
space for top, sides, or rear. The front grille must
NOT be obstructed.
NOTE
Double drawer Refrigerator Drawers are
designed to be built-in only. They can not be
used for free-standing.
All screws supplied with the Anti-Tip Kit
are for mounting the bracket directly to wall
studs. These screws will not work if used with
sheetrock (dry wall) or anything other than
wall studs.
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.

before it is used. Double stacking units may
cause serious personal injury.
2 This unit requires a grounded and polarized

local codes and ordinances.
