Electrical Shock Hazard

  • Before carrying out any work on the electrical section of the appliance, it must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply.
  • Connection to a good earth wiring system is absolutely essential and mandatory.
  • Alterations to the domestic wiring system must only be made by a qualified electrician.
  • Failure to follow this advice may result in electrical shock or death.

Cut Hazard

  • Take care - panel edges are sharp. Failure to use caution could result in injury or cuts.

Fire hazard

Important Safety Instructions!

  • To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to person, or damage when using the warming drawer, please read these instructions carefully before installing this product.
  • Please make this information available to the person installing the product – doing so may reduce your installation costs.
  • Installation work, maintenance and repairs may only be carried out by suitably qualified and competent persons in accordance with national and local safety regulations.
  • Always disconnect the power supply prior to carrying out any installation, maintenance or repair work.
  • Before installation make sure that the voltage and frequency listed on the data plate corresponds with the household electrical supply.
  • The electrical outlet should be easily accessible after installation.
  • When a companion product is installed in combination with the warming drawer to the same circuit, operating both products may cause an overload. If in doubt consult a qualified electrician.
  • When installed in combination with a companion product the companion product may be placed directly onto the warming drawer. It is not necessary to place a shelf between the products. A built- in shelf at the base of the cabinetry able to support the weight of both products is required.
  • If installing the warming drawer directly underneath an oven, ensure you do not damage the oven’s lower trim. The lower trim ensures correct air circulation to the oven and allows the door to open and close without obstruction. Fisher & Paykel does not accept any responsibility for any damage resulting from incorrect installation.
  • The maximum weight the warming drawer is able to support is 60 kg.
  • The warming drawer is not designed for use in mobile installations such as recreational vehicles, boats or aircraft.
  • When installing companion products the weight of the companion product should be distributed across the edges of the warming drawer. Products above which rest on “feet” may only be installed if the feet of the product lie within 70mm of the sides of the warming drawer, as this area is reinforced. Failure to do this may result in damage to the warming drawer and companion product.
  • Before installing the warming drawer you must inspect it for any signs of damage. Under no circumstances should you install or use the warming drawer if it has been damaged.
  • If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or a similarly qualified tradesperson in order to avoid a hazard.
  • Connect the warming drawer to a properly rated, protected and sized power supply circuit to avoid electrical overload.
  • Do not use an extension cord or a portable electrical outlet device (e.g. multi-socket outlet box) to connect the Warming Drawer to the power supply. Make sure the power supply cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over or otherwise subject to damage or stress.
  • Ensure the connection to power supply is accessible after installation.
