Contact your local authority to inquire about required building permits before beginning any work on an existing cabinet.
Measure your cabinets' inner dimensions and compare them with the recommended cutout dimensions for the wine chiller you purchased.
Choose a cabinet that has the proper dimensions and an outlet on the rear wall within reach of the power cord. Without this, you will have to install an electrical outlet.
Remove the cabinet door with a screwdriver or drill.
Cut out the bottom of the cabinet and the outer top, front panel with a reciprocating saw if need be for sizing. You must do this if the fridge will not sit inside the cabinet properly.
Reinforce the cabinet, if the structure is compromised, with cross braces along the sides and back.
Ensure there is the minimum distance between the fridge door and the wall or side cabinet so that the door opens properly. The required distance varies by model.
Level the product as needed. Though the appliances vary, most have adjustable legs that raise and lower the cooler. The wine fridge typically needs to be plumb with the cabinet.
Plug in the fridge to a grounded, three-prong outlet in the rear. Never pull the cord to make it reach or use an extension cord.
Slide the wine fridge into the cabinet.
