Enclosure

Cutout and

Product

Dimensions

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.

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.

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 dimensions.

• 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.

Side panels are required whenever the sides of the product will be exposed.

1/2" to 3/4" side panels are normally set into place and fastened to adjacent cabinetry or back wall before rolling the refrigerator or freezer into the opening.

Therefore, the rough-in dimensions must allow for side panel thickness. In a flush and semi-flush installation, the finished dimension (width of the opening after side panels are installed), must accommodate the full width of the product. See page 11 for side panel sizes.

For proper installation, the refrigerator or freezer must be placed on a level surface of hard material the same height as the rest of the flooring. The floor should be strong enough to support a fully loaded refrigerator or freezer, or approximately 1,200 lbs.

NOTE: Protect the finish of the flooring. Cut a large section of the cardboard carton and place under the product where you are working.

IMPORTANT – (Please read carefully)

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.

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.

• A cold water supply is required for automatic icemaker operation. The water pressure must be between 20 and 120 p.s.i.

• Route 1/4" OD copper or GE SmartConnect ™ tubing between house cold water line and the water connection location.

• Tubing should be long enough to extend to the front of the refrigerator. Allow enough to accommodate bend leading into the water valve.

NOTE: The only GE approved plastic tubing is supplied in the GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing kits.

Do not use any other plastic water supply line because the line is under pressure at all times. Other types of plastic may crack or rupture with age and cause water damage to your home.

GE SmartConnect ™ Refrigerator Tubing Kits are available in the following lengths:

2' (.6 m) WX08X10002

6' (1.8 m) WX08X10006

15' (4.6 m) WX08X10015

25' (7.6 m) WX08X10025

Shut off the main water supply.

Turn on the nearest faucet long enough to clear the line of water.

• Install a shut-off valve between the icemaker water valve and cold water pipe in a basement or cabinet.

The shut-off valve should be located where it will be easily accessible.

• Turn on the main water supply and flush debris from the line. Run about a quart of water through the tubing into a bucket. Shut off water at the shut-off valve.

NOTE: Saddle type shut-off valves are included in many water supply kits. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle type valve complies with local plumbing codes.

All models have 4-point leveling. The front is supported by leveling legs, the rear is supported by wheels.

• Adjust rear wheels beneath the product to just barely touch the 2x4 block.

• Turn the 7/16" hex nut located above the front wheels.

Turn to raise or lower the refrigerator.

• For front leveling legs, use a 1-1/4" open-end wrench.

• Adjust carefully, the refrigerator should be level and plumb with cabinetry, and align with toekick height.

CAUTION

The rear leveling wheels and front leveling legs are limited to a maximum height adjustment of 1".

If the installation requires more than 84-1/2" height, the installer should elevate the refrigerator on a sheet of plywood or runners. Cabinetry trim could also be added across the top of the opening to shorten the opening. If you attempt to raise the refrigerator more than 1", you will damage the front leveling legs and the rear leveling wheels.

PRUDENCE

Les roues de nivellement arrière et les pattes de nivellement avant permettent un réglage maximal de 25 mm (1 po). Si l’ouverture pour le réfrigérateur a une hauteur supérieure à 2,15 m (84-1/2 po), l’installateur doit élever le réfrigérateur sur une feuille de contre-plaqué ou des glissières. Il est

également possible d’ajouter des baguettes de finition des placards sur le haut de l’ouverture afin de la réduire. Lever le réfrigérateur de plus de 25 mm (1 po) endommage les pattes de nivellement avant et les roues de nivellement arrière.

NOTE: Whenever possible, perform this step for additional anti-tip security. This step can be used as an alternate to Step

4, Anti-Tip bracket installation, whenever brackets cannot be used.

When using 1/2" to 3/4" side panels, the front flange of the case trim is attached to the side panel.

• Open door to access case trim.

• Drill hole in trim slightly below the interior opening.

PRECAUTIONS CONTRE LES BASCULEMENTS

Le réfrigérateur est beaucoup plus lourd en haut et il faut le maintenir en place pour éviter la possibilité de son basculement vers l’avant.

Side View

• Cut a 2"x4" block, 71" long. Secure the 2"x4" to the 4 mounting brackets provided using #12 or #14 wood screws.

• Secure the brackets with wood block to the back wall so that it is 84" (or your installation height) from the finished floor. Use #12 or #14 wood screws. See illustration.

• Screws must penetrate at least one inch into vertical wall studs.

Roll Both Products into Opening

• Gently push each product into opening with hands against front corners. Push back into the opening until it is flush or semi-flush with adjacent cabinets.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When the products are installed under a soffit or if there is not enough height for this method of security, use Step 4 as an alternative. The refrigerator and freezer must be secured to prevent tipping.

Both products MUST BE LEVEL AND PLUMB with each other and adjacent cabinetry on each side.

Toekick heights should align with cabinetry.

• Adjust carefully. Both models have 4-point leveling.

The front is supported by leveling legs, the rear is supported by wheels.

• Raise units to the same level, aligning with adjacent toekick heights.

• Adjust rear wheels beneath the product to just barely touch the 2x4 block.

• Turn the 7/16" hex nut located above the front wheels to raise or lower the back of the refrigerator.

• To adjust the front leveling legs: Use a 1/4" angled wrench to turn the top of the leveling leg, or turn the bottom of the legs with a 1-1/4" wrench.

Hex Nut Adjusts

Rear Wheels

Leveling Leg

Units must be 1" apart and evenly aligned at top and bottom. The inside case trims must align, top and bottom.

CAUTION

The rear leveling wheels and front leveling legs are limited to a maximum height adjustment of 1".

If the installation requires more than 84-1/2" height, the installer should elevate the refrigerator on a sheet of plywood or runners. Cabinetry trim could also be added across the top of the opening to shorten the opening. If you attempt to raise the refrigerator more than 1", you will damage the front leveling legs and the rear leveling wheels.

PRUDENCE

Les roues de nivellement arrière et les pattes de nivellement avant permettent un réglage maximal de 25 mm (1 po). Si l’ouverture pour le réfrigérateur a une hauteur supérieure à 2,15 m (84-1/2 po), l’installateur doit élever le réfrigérateur sur une feuille de contre-plaqué ou des glissières. Il est

également possible d’ajouter des baguettes de finition des placards sur le haut de l’ouverture afin de la réduire. Lever le réfrigérateur de plus de 25 mm (1 po) endommage les pattes de nivellement avant et les roues de nivellement arrière.
