Door swing clearance

The unit is not intended for freestanding use and has to be installed inside a cabinet. This type of cabinet must be carefully constructed using the proper dimensions and it must provide proper ventilation to ensure proper appliance operation.

Fig. 7

-An effective ventilation cross-section of at least 31 in2 (200 cm2) per unit must be present at the air intake

Fig. 7 (1) and air outlet Fig. 7 (2).

-The upper ventilation cross-section can be set up directly above the appliance with an optional ventilation grille Fig. 7 (2), near the ceiling above a cabinet Fig. 7 (3) or as an air vent in an intermediate ceiling Fig. 7 (4).

Fig. 8

- An unobstructed air way with a depth of at least 1 1/2 in. (38 mm) must be ensured at the back of the kitchen cabinet.

u The air-circulation clearances indicated above must be maintained.

6 Door swing clearance

Frameless cabinets: The casing trim overlaps the cabinets at the side and top. Cabinets may require filler strips to prevent interference with the cabinet door swing. The door opening must allow for filler strips.

The factory setting for the door to swing open is 110°. The optional setting for the door to swing open is 90°. Use the following illustrations (1:1) to ensure other cabinets or counters do not interfere with the door opening.
