Installation
1.
Measure the height of your cabinet opening. The top of the
compactor
should be at least 1/8" (3 mm) from the top of the
cabinet opening.
The rear wheels are preset for a cabinet opening of 341/4"
(87 cm). See Position "1" in the picture following.
To adjust for other cabinet opening heights:
Loosen self-tapping
screw enough to clear stud from hole
in Position "1 ."
Move the rear wheel and stud to Position "2" or "3" as
needed for your cabinet opening measurement:
Position "2": 341/4 '' to 347/16 '' (87 to 87.5 cm)
Position "3": 347/16 '' to 345/8 '' (87.5 to 88 cm)
NOTE: To level the compactor
in position "3," you may
need to add shims under the leveling legs.
Tighten screw. Repeat for other rear wheel.

2. Use pliers to lower leveling legs away from cabinet. Adjust
legs so there will be a 1/8"(3 mm) to 1/4"(6.4 mm) space
between the top of the compactor and the top of the cabinet
opening. Stand the compactor
upright.
3. Move the compactor
close to its final location.
4. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
5. Determine whether you want the compactor
frame or drawer
front flush with the cabinet front.
Using the two #8-18 x 5/le" (8 mm) screws, install the retaining
brackets to cabinet top as needed:
If the compactor
frame is to be flush with the cabinet
front, place retaining bracket screws through "1 ."
If the compactor
drawer front is to be flush with the
cabinet front, place retaining bracket screws through "3."
If the compactor
is to be midway between "1" and "3,"
place the retaining bracket screws through "2."

Slowly lift the front slightly and roll compactor
into the cabinet
opening.
Using the two #8-18 x 1/2' (12 mm) screws, fasten the
