  • Ensure that the hose is not run over when moving the product/s to prevent damage and possible water leaks.

  • Use low speed, low torque setting when using a powered driver.

  • Ensure power cord is not damaged during installation.

 

Positioning the Product Inside the Cabinetry

  1. Coil the water hose flat behind the product.

  2. Before rolling the product into the cabinetry, insert a barbed plug into a large hole on each side of the product to protect the inside of the cabinetry from being damaged by screws on the sides of the product (A).

  3. Roll the product slowly into the cabinetry. Ensure that the water hose is not run over to prevent damage that can cause a water leak.

  4. Continue rolling the product into the cabinetry until the anti-tip bracket overlaps (min 180mm) the back top surface of the product. Refer to ‘Cavity Preparation’.

  5. Check the clearance between the floor and the feet. Ensure the rollers of the product can roll freely on the floor.

  • Ensure the doors are in line with the cabinetry front and the product is centred.

  • All four corners of the product must be supported firmly onto the floor to

    eliminate any movement. Installing the product on a soft, uneven, or not level floor may cause twisting and poor door sealing.

 

Adjusting Height of the Product Inside the Cabinetry

  1. Turn the front and rear adjustment screws using a cross-head screwdriver (or powered driver) to extend the feet until it engages the floor.
  • One turn of height adjusting nuts is equivalent to 0.5mm of height adjustment. Clockwise turn raises the height and counter-clockwise turn lowers height (A).

  • Align bottom gauge.

  • Adjust height.

  • Align top gauge.

  1. Continue turning the adjusting screws alternately between front and rear feet until you achieve the correct alignment.

  2. Once you are satisfied with the alignment, raise the height of the product by alternately adjusting the front and rear feet until the top surface contacts the alcove ceiling.

    • Check the alignment gauges while adjusting the screws to make sure you maintain the alignment of the product.

  3. Ensure all feet are positively engaged with the floor.

  • Make sure to remove the depth alignment brackets before fixing the product inside the cabinetry.
  • Open the product door to remove the alignment brackets from both sides of the product, and then re-tighten the screws.

  • Dual installation applies to two products to be installed side by side.

  • A joiner kit is required and located in the Freezer model only.

  • The joiner kit is also available for purchase through an authorised Fisher & Paykel dealer. Visit fisherpaykel.com for more information.

  • Refer to ‘Cavity dimensions’ section for cabinetry overall width for dual install, and ‘Dual installation option’ for selecting applicable options.

  • Follow the steps carefully for the correct installation of first and second products inside the cabinetry.

 

Attaching the Central Spacer to Cabinetry

The spacer must be attached between the first and second products. The attachment location of the spacer to the alcove ceiling depends on the model of each product.
  1. Measure from the alcove side towards the centre.

    The alcove width for each side depends on the size of the product to be installed.


    For example,

    • left side alcove width (A) = 457mm model

    • right side alcove width (B) = 762mm model

Refer to ‘Cavity dimensions’ section for dual install options.

  1. Using one depth alignment gauge, mark the location and depth position of the central spacer on the alcove ceiling depending on the door panel thickness (C).

    • Make sure to follow the marked depth of the alignment gauge relative to the door panel (D).

  2. Fix the central spacer to the alcove ceiling with two 8Gx16 countersunk screws. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver or Powered driver) (E).
