Before Installation


Refrigeration Alcove Preparation

  • For integrated installation, a finished return of solid material is required across the top and sides of the new or existing alcove.
  • It is recommended that the return be at least 3 1/2” (88.9mm) deep across the sides.
  • Refer to 'Cavity Preparations' prior to installation of the appliance.


  • To ensure that the appliance is not accidentally switched off, connect your refrigerator to its own isolating switch. Do not plug in any other appliance at this isolating switch.
  • For power requirements, please refer to the information on the serial plate. This is located at the front right-hand side of the drawer when open.
  • It is essential that the appliance is properly grounded (earthed).
  • Connect the appliance to the electrical supply (115VAC, 60Hz) with the fitted plug and lead.
  • Follow the National Electrical Code and all local codes and ordinances when installing this product.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) may trip during normal operation of your refrigerator and interrupt the power supply. The use of a GFCI is not recommended with this product.


  • Your refrigerator should not be located in direct sunlight or next to any heat generating appliance such as a cooktop, oven or dishwasher.
  • Your product is fitted with front and rear rollers designed for moving the product in forwards and backwards direction.
  • Avoid moving the product in a sideways direction as this may damage the rollers or the floor covering/surface.


  • Your product must be installed by a qualified appliance installer as incorrect plumbing can lead to water leaks.
  • Fisher & Paykel Appliances and DCS by Fisher & Paykel Appliances do not accept responsibility for damage (including water damage) caused by faulty installation or plumbing.
