True Flush Installation
In a flush installation,
the refrigerator doors
will align evenly with the
front face of adjacent cabinet
doors. The refrigerator blends
into the surrounding cabinetry.
Monogram built-in refrigerators and freezers can be
installed flush with typical 24-3/4" deep cabinetry.
When installed semi-flush, the case trim will conceal
slight gaps around the enclosure. The refrigerator or
freezer will project forward approximately 3/4" beyond
the front face of surrounding cabinetry.
In any installation situation, a wide range of appearance options can be accomplished through the use of
one or more trim kits. See trim kit descriptions and
appearance options on page 6.

Semi-Flush Installation
These refrigerators
can also be installed
semi-flush into an enclosure
using the minimum cutout
width. The case trim creates a
frame around the opening.
Side Panel Requirements:
• Side panels are not required whenever the
refrigerator is installed into an enclosure or between
pantry and oven cabinets.
• Side panels are required whenever the sides of the
refrigerator are exposed.
• Side panel sizes vary depending on the type of
installation being made.
To accomplish an attractive installation, you must:
1. Determine the need for side panels.
2. Determine side panel thickness.
3. Order matching side panels from the cabinet
manufacturer. Be sure to provide the exact
Sdimensions.
• To achieve a flush fit the finished cutout width must
be at least 36" wide.
• A semi-flush installation requires 35-1/2" min. finished
cutout width.
• The electrical and water locations must be located as
shown for either type of installation.

Refrigerator
IMPORTANT - (Please read carefully)
• Bucket
• Level
• Appliance Hand Truck
• Tubing cutter
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
PROPERLY GROUNDED.
The power cord of these appliances are equipped with
a three-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a
standard three-prong (grounding) wall receptacle to
minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from
this appliance.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it
is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
IMPORTANT:
We recommend two separate 115V, 60Hz. 20 amp.,
properly grounded electrical outlets for a side by
side installation of two products. Each electrical
outlet should have a voltage rating that matches the
rating plate.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY
CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT
OR REMOVE THE THIRD
(GROUND) PRONG
FROM THE POWER CORD.
Use of Adapter plug
Because of potential hazards under certain conditions,
we strongly recommend against use of an adapter plug.
However, if you still elect to use an adapter, where local
codes permit, a TEMPORARY CONNECTION, may be
made to a properly grounded 2-prong wall outlet by use
of a UL listed adapter available at most hardware
stores.
The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the
larger slot in the wall outlet to provide proper polarity in
the connection of the power cord.
12
• 7/16" open-end wrench
• #2 Phillips screwdriver
• Stubby Phillips
screwdriver
• Drill and appropriate bits
• 7/16" socket with 3"
extension for ratchet
• Safety glasses
• Hardware for side panel installation.
• 35" long 2x4 for Anti-Tip support
NOTE: Protect the finish of the flooring. Cut a large
section of the cardboard carton and place under the
product where you are working.
CAUTION
Attaching the adapter ground terminal to a wall
outlet cover screw does not ground the appliance
unless the cover screw is metal, and not insulated,
and the wall outlet is grounded through the house
wiring. You should have the circuit checked by a
qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is
properly grounded.
PRUDENCE
FICHE D’ADAPTATION
(Fiches d’adaptation non permises au Canada)
When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter,
always hold the adapter in place with one hand and
pulling the power cord with the other hand. If this is not
done, the adapter ground terminal is very likely to break
with repeated use.
Should the adapter ground terminal break, DO NOT USE
the appliance until a proper ground has again been
established.
Use of Extension Cords
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of
an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an
extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL
listed 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the
electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum)
and 120 volts.

If you are installing handle onto a Stainless Steel
Panel:
Use extreme caution if you are drilling through a
stainless steel panel. Stainless steel panels must be
handled gently. Do not kneel on the stainless steel
panel. It will leave a permanent dent. Do not remove
protective plastic covering until final installation.
• Place panel on plywood section, appearance side
down. Be sure plywood is clean without nicks and
burrs. Center punch at each screw hole location.
• Drill 1/8" pilot hole. Use 9/32" bit to enlarge clearance
hole.
• Measure and cut a 2" wide strip, top to bottom off the
corrugated panel. This will allow room for spacer
rings between the stainless panel and extrusion.
• Place supplied filler panel (corrugated) on floor to use
as a pad.
• On the back side of the panel - at the handle side,
measure and mark 1/4" below the top edge of the
panel.
• Slip panel into the new extrusion, flush against inner
edge, on the handle side.
• Align extrusion to pencil mark as shown in Step 2.
Mark each screw hole location with pencil.

and freezer side by side.
This trim kit includes 6 foam spacer pads to fill the gap
between the side case trims. For a finished appearance,
a trim strip is provided to conceal the case trim of the
two products.
If you are installing into an enclosure, a 72" min. wide

will be exposed, allow additional width for any side
panels used.
• Apply foam spacer pads evenly to the side of one
refrigerator or freezer as shown.
• Slide second product into position.
• Check to be sure both products are level. If they are
not level, an obvious gap can be seen between the
side trims. Adjust leveling legs if needed. Slight gaps
will be concealed with the trim strip.

• The U-shape trim will overlap the side case trim of
both refrigerators.
• Set the top case trim (see page 17) to installation
