BUILT-IN CABINET INSTRUCTIONS
These appliances are designed for both built-in or free standing installation. For built-in installation, ensure
proper service access and ventilation, allow at least ¼” space on each side and at the top.
This appliance requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong. Have
the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded. The
cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental injury.
The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating
that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevent over-
loading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug the appliance by
pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or replace
immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows
cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the appliance, be careful not to
damage the power cord.
Because of potential safety hazards, it is strongly recommended that you do not use an extension cord with
this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-
Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the
electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.
