Location Requirements
Your Dacor refrigerator can be recessed in an opening between
cabinets or installed at the end of a cabinet run using a side panel
to enclose the refrigerator.
*Add 2 1/2” (635 mm) for the optional top trim kit.
IMPORTANT:
◊
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for a
1/2” (1.25 mm) space at the top and behind the refrigerator.
◊
Do not install the refrigerator in a location where the
temperature will fall below 55°F (13°C).
◊
Allow a minimum of 2 1/2” (64 mm) space between the side of the refrigerator and an oven or range.
◊
The floor must be able to support the refrigerator’s weight of •
more than 600 lbs (272 kg), the door panels and the contents
of the refrigerator.
◊
The area to the left and the right of the appliance must •
permit both doors to open to a minimum of 90°. Allow space
between the side of the refrigerator doors and a corner wall
for the handle and/or custom door panels.
Electrical Requirements
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz. AC only 15 or 20 amp fused, grounded electrical
supply is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet that
cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an extension cord. Water Supply Requirements
◊
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 35 and
120 psi (241 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water
dispenser and ice maker. If you have questions about your
water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
◊
Install a shut off valve between the refrigerator and water
supply. Use 1/4” copper tubing with a compression nut and
compression sleeve and check for leaks. Allow a minimum of
24” (610 mm) diameter service loop of copper tubing outside
the wall or floor for easy connection to the water supply.
Install copper tubing only in areas where the household
temperatures will remain above freezing.
◊
Do not use a piecing type or 3/16” (4.76 mm) saddle valve
which will reduce water flow and clog more easily.
Cabinet Layout
◊
A grounded three prong non-GFCI electrical outlet must
be provided and should be in a location that allows the
refrigerator to be connected without an extension cord. See
“Electrical Requirements” for additional information.
◊
The plumbing for the water line can come through the floor
flush to or from the back wall. Install the water valve in a
location that allows it to be turned off without moving the
refrigerator out in the event the refrigerator or water line
requires service.

osmosis water supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of
a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator needs to be between 35 and 120 psi (241 and 827
kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than 40
to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
■
Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
■
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
■
If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce
the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse
osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See the use and
care manual.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
