Kitchen Fitting and Installation Guide

Kitchen installation guide

Step 1

When moving your unit please ensure it is supported in the middle to avoid any fracturing of the middle structure. We would recommend your compact kitchen remains in its packaging until near its final position and ready for installing.

Step 2

Check all first fix positions of the electrics, water and waste are correct and the surface your kitchen is to be installed on is clean and level. There is no adjustment on feet and in the event of an uneven surface you may need wedges to keep the unit level and maintain the drawer and door lines.

Please note there is a minimum of 45mm clearance to the back of the unit to allow the utilities to exit and any skirting or other architectural features.

Step 3

When unpacking please put the waste kit and tap in a safe place for later use.

Step 4

Check the 13amp plugs and tails on the appliances for unlikely damage whilst in transit. Read on for more kitchen installation advice.

Step 5

Move into final fixing position, please remember these units are designed to be free standing. Should you tile or use one of our stainless steel splash backs above the unit a bead of mastic will help secure the unit and ensure water does not run down the back of your unit.

Step 6

Proceed with the connection of water and waste.

Step 7

If you have an Ms or Mos model, the microwave or combi should be installed when the above works are complete. For the Ms, remove the two drawers below the microwave housing before putting the microwave into position.

For the Mos, please remove the single drawer where you will find two screws on the underside of the microwave frame after removing these the frame can be easily removed and allows the combi to be positioned. Re-fit the frame and replace the drawer.

Step 8

Before switching on the fridge when installing a mini kitchen, please remove the packaging from the inside and read the operating instructions.

Step 9

Please keep all paperwork in a safe place for future reference in the unlikely event of any failure within the first year of purchase after fitting kitchen units. This may include any kitchen fitting instructions that you might need in the future.
