Solution: Contrary to popular belief, the various types of built-in food slicers (AES 62 SL for slicing from the left or AES 62 SR for slicing from the right) are not intended as variants for right-handed and left-handed users but offer alternatives for planning of various installation conditions. If an angled worktop or tall kitchen cabinet (highboard, refrigerator, etc.) is located right next to the kitchen drawer intended for installation of the built-in food slicer, slicing should be guided on the opposite side. If there is sufficient space, e.g. in extra-wide kitchen drawers, the problem can be avoided by positioning the appliance at maximum clearance to the angled worktop or kitchen cabinet.
The clear height of the drawer is insufficient / when the device is installed, the drawer cannot be closed anymore / the device rubs against the cabinet crossbeam
This problem occurs e.g. with drawers with underfloor guides. The technology for dampening, self-closing of the drawer, etc. is installed below the drawer for design reasons which reduces the clear height of the drawer. Consequeuntly, an installed built-in food slicer, built-in toaster oder built-in hand blender rubs against the crossbeam or the drawer cannot be closed at all.
Most kitchens have a wooden crossbeam with a thickness of approx. 16 mm installed below the worktop. On one hand, the crossbeam ensures the stability of the cabinet (e.g. during transport), on the other hand, it is used to mount the worktop.
Solution: If it is not possible to install the device due to insufficient clear height, you can gain approx. 14 mm of clear height by removing the wooden crossbeam and replacing it by a metal crossbeam. You can order these metal crossbeams as optional accessories from your distributor or from ritter customer service.
