! WARNING

SHOCK HAZARD — Electrical Grounding Required. Never attempt to repair or perform maintenance on the unit until the electricity has been disconnected.

Never remove the round grounding prong from the plug and never use a two-prong grounding adapter.

Altering, cutting or removing power cord, removing power plug, or direct wiring can cause serious injury, fire, loss of property and/or life, and will void the warranty.

Never use an extension cord to connect power to the unit.

Always keep your working area dry.

NOTICE

Electrical installation must observe all state and local codes. This unit requires connection to a grounded (three-prong), polarized receptacle that has been placed by a qualified electrician.

The unit requires a grounded and polarized 115 VAC,

60 Hz, 15A power supply (normal household current). An individual, properly grounded branch circuit or circuit breaker is recommended. A GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) is usually not required for fixed location appliances and is not recommended for your unit because it could be prone to nuisance tripping. However, be sure to consult your local codes.

INSTALLATION

LEVELING INFORMATION

1. Plug in the power/electrical cord.

 

1. Use a level to confirm the unit is level. Level should be placed along top edge and side edge as shown.

2.If the unit is not level, adjust the legs on the corners of the unit as necessary.

Turn to Adjust

3.Confirm the unit is level after each adjustment and repeat the previous steps until the unit is level.

INSTALLATION TIP

If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cutout opening, adjust the rear legs to achieve a total unit rear height of 1/8" (3 mm) less than the opening’s rear height. Shorten the unit height in the front by adjusting the front legs. This allows the unit to be gently tipped into the opening. Readjust the front legs to level the unit after it is correctly positioned in the opening.

2.Gently push the unit into position. Be careful not to entangle the cord.

3.Re-check the leveling, from front to back and side to side. Make any necessary adjustments. The unit’s top surface should be approximately 1/8" (3 mm) below the countertop.

4.Remove the interior packing material and wipe out the inside of the unit with a clean, water-dampened cloth.
