6. Attach 2" x 4" cross support cleat between the studs, level with the bottom of the opening.
7. The cabinet will be attached to studs using four screws, one in each side at the top of cabinet and one in each side at bottom of
cabinet. Using a 1/8" drill bit, pre-drill pilot holes approximately 14" from the top of the cabinet and 1 1/2" from the back of the cabinet. For
models without a swivel, pre-drill pilot hole approximately 14" from the bottom and 1 1/2" from the back of the cabinet. For models with a
swivel board, complete Steps 8, 9, and 10 before pre-drilling pilot holes for bottom location.
Note: If an electrical model is being installed, the temporary removal of the electrical wireway may be helpful to complete this step.
Reinstall electrical wireway after cabinet is attached to studs.
8. If installing an electrical model, please review Electrical Instructions now. If installing a non-electrical modeldo not install your own
electrical outlet inside cabinet. Warranty voided if independent electrical outlet installed within non-electrical ironing center cabinet.
9. Begin installation by carefully lifting ironing center into the wall opening.
10. Plumb and level the cabinet. Shim to fit.
11. For models with swivels, continue with Step 12. For models without swivels, attach cabinet to studs using the four pre-drilled holes
with four #10 x 1 1/2" screws. Once complete, continue to Step 13.
12. Attach cabinet to studs using the two pre-drilled holes and two #10 x 1 1/2" screws for the top installation. Locate the side ironing board
brackets that are secured to the cabinet with three screws each. Remove the top screw only from each side bracket. Use this location
to pre-drill pilot holes for bottom installation location. Pre-drill a pilot hole through top hole in each bracket into stud. Finish attaching
cabinet into studs using the #14 x 2 1/2" screws for the just completed two pre-drilled holes in each side bracket.
13. Decorative trim may be added to cover any irregularity on wall.
ELECTRICAL INSTRUCTIONS
ALL ELECTRICAL WORK MUST BE DONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE ELECTRICAL CODES.
WARNING: TURN OFF POWER AT SERVICE ENTRANCE BEFORE INSTALLING, WIRING OR SERVICING
THIS PRODUCT.
Note: Opening in the top of the ironing center cabinet for the electrical supply wire is located 2 1/4" on center
from left side of cabinet and 2 1/4" on center from the back of the cabinet.
1. Open the front cover by removing the screw at the top and bottom of the electrical wireway.
2. Note: In the front cover of the electrical wireway, near the top, there is a loose black and a loose white
wire pigtail that are provided for hookup to the electrical supply line.
3. Locate and remove the knockout at the top of the back cover of the electrical wireway and install a
3/8" romex connector where the knockout was removed.
4. Verify that there is ample supply wire available to run from the top of the ironing center cabinet to the
approximate location of the electrical pigtails. (A free wire length of approximately 48" is recommended.)
5. Begin to place the ironing center into its location while feeding the free supply wire through the opening
in the top of the ironing center cabinet and the 3/8" romex connector attached to the back cover of the
electrical wireway.
6. Put into place and secure the ironing center cabinet as identified in Step 9 through 12 of the Recessed
Mounting or Step 10 through 13 of Surface Mounting whichever mounting method is applicable.
7. Connect all power supply wires and ground wires in accordance with all electrical codes. Trim as
necessary excess supply wire.
Note for Models A-46 and AL-42: Inside the front cover of the electrical wireway there is a yellow label
that identifies the Electrical Supply Connection Area. Make certain that when wiring the ironing center,
the wire nuts are placed and secured into the area identified by the yellow tag. If placement of wire
nuts is located elsewhere, damage to the LED timer will likely occur.
8. Place into position the top cover of the electrical wireway making sure no wires are pinched when
reinstalling the top cover to the back cover.
9. Reinstall the top screw and bottom screw removed in Step 1 into the electrical wire cover.
10. Turn on power at Service Entrance to test and verify that electrical components (timer or on/off switch,
automatic disconnect switch, electrical outlet) are working properly.
