To change the door hinge please refer to the diagram below and proceed as follows:—

positions close to walls or corners. There must be sufficient room for free ventilation particularly
at the back. The unit should be located away from direct heat sources, such as cookers,
radiators and direct sunlight. If the unit is positioned where the temperature is too low,
condensation will form on the outside of the cabinet. Normal room temperature is recommended.
Avoid locations which may be affected by draughts or dampness as this will impair the efficiency
