Designer Series Header Panel Does Not Stay in Place


  • How to install header fillers
  • Header fillers fall out of unit
  • Header fillers not staying in place
  • Top trim strips broken


To install the top trim strips (header fillers):

  1. Identify the top trim strips by the notch on one end at the
    bottom; this trim strip fits on the hinge side of the unit.
  2. Insert the outer end of each trim strip behind the vertical
    side trim.
  3. Engage the snap in the plastic side bracket and
    slide the panel as far to the outside as possible.
  4. Rotate the inner end of each panel into the side flange of
    the center shroud, next to the water filter access door.
  5. Press on the trim strip to push into place.
  6. Units do not ship with top trim strips in place.
  7. If the top trim piece will not stay in place, is falling out, or is broken, a new trim strip may be needed. Contact a Factory Certified Parts Distributor to order parts.
  8. If the header panel does not stay in place after these steps are complete, no further troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
