INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Refrigerator Surround Kit
All dimensions are internal or cavity dimensions.
The refrigerator can be installed:
1 In a cavity with 5/8” (16mm) panel (bottom trim attached), or in a cavity where the
product is at floor level (no bottom trim). (Diagram 1a).
2 In a cavity with a toe kick under the product with the bottom trim fitted to the base
(Diagram 1b).
3 Check whether your fridge has hinges concealed by the front of the fridge door.
For refrigerators / freezers where the hinge is not concealed by the door refer to
spare parts for the correct kit number. 820413 D should list non concealed number kit.

Due to the size of the refrigerator(s), it is essential that assembly of the surround kit be undertaken with a minimum of two ablebodied persons.
It is important to include adequate venting to the top of the refrigerator, to ensure efficient operation.
The installation of the refrigerator(s) can be at floor level as shown in Diagram 1a or installed above the toe kick board as in
Diagram 1b.
Rollers and feet must be fitted.
Refrigerators installed above the toe kit should have a floor base constructed to support the total weight of the loaded
refrigerator(s) placed on it.
The placement of the 5/8” (16mm) MDF or plywood under the refrigerator(s) on either installation type is to allow the fitment of the
bottom trim that covers it. It is optional.

9 TRIM INSTALLATION
Bottom trim (1)
The bottom trim is designed to cover the front edge of the floor base panel of the
refrigerator. This trim can be installed on a raised toe kick (Diagram 1a) or toe kick
below the refrigerator (Diagram 1b)
Remembering that if this trim is to be used with the refrigerator at floor level the
cavity dimensions will need to have 5/8” (16mm) added to its height to allow for the
bottom trim to be fitted. Note this trim is optional on this type of installation. If used
with a raised toe kick the 5/8” (16mm) packer should be part of the base (Diagram 5).
Therefore 5/8” (16mm) is not required to be added to the height dimension.

Locate the two/three top trim brackets.
For the side by side refrigerator kits, one bracket is to be
screwed in the top center of the cabinetry, secure the top
bracket with two of the screws (Type A, #8 x 12 Pozi Drive
CSK) (see Diagram 2a).
For all other kits, the two brackets are to be secured on
either side, by two screws which are mounted from the side
(see Diagram 2b).
Looking at the front of the refrigerator, place the top brackets
on top of the wooden cabinetry.
Care must be taken to line up the top front edge of the
brackets with the leading edge of the cabinetry.
Hint: holes should be drilled in the center of the slot in the
brackets to allow for adjustment.
Part of base
1 If used place the 5/8” (16mm) piece of plywood or with bottom trim fitted into
the cavity (Diagram 5 or 6). Note: the piece should be the same size as the base of
the cavity.
2 Remove protective coating film from surround trim.
3 To install the surrounds, first clip in the top surround. Ensure the locator strips at the
rear of the top brackets clip into the rear of the top trim.
4 Clip both side trims into place starting from the front refrigerator edge.
