Designer Undercounter panels are adjustable for proper alignment.

  1. Close the door. Make any necessary adjustments to align the panel and reveals.
  2. For side-to-side adjustment, move the panel side to side, then install and tighten all mounting screws.
  3. For up-and-down and in-and-out adjustments, slightly loosen the bracket screws.
    • Depending on the level of adjustment required, it may be helpful to loosen all of the bracket screws, which will allow for maximum adjustment.
    • Once the bracket screws are loosened, use a wrench to rotate the cams to make adjustments.
    • After the adjustments have been made, tighten all bracket screws.

Kickplate Adjustment

The kickplate must be removable for service. The floor cannot interfere with removal.

1. Finger-tighten the adjustment bracket nuts as shown below.
2. Make in-and-out adjustments, then wrench-tighten the bracket nuts.
3. Install the kickplate with the provided screws.

A decorative kickplate can be attached to the factory installed kickplate.

  1. To install a decorative kickplate, remove the paper backing from the magnets and attach the decorative kickplate to the magnets.
    • The magnets allow the decorative kickplate to be removed if necessary.
    • The three rows of vented louvers cannot be covered.
    • A decorative kickplate cannot be attached to the outdoor model.
