Step 1: Remove the Drywall

Determine the location for the coffeemaker on the wall. It will need both water and electric supplies. Use the template supplied by the manufacturer to mark the cut-out lines on the wall. Remove the drywall or plaster and lath.

Step 2: Attach the Supply Line

Turn off the water supply to the kitchen. Run a water-supply line through the wall from the cavity to a nearby pipe. Attach the supply line to the pipe.

Step 3: Connect the Electrical Wiring

Turn off the power to the circuit that will supply the coffeemaker, and hook up the electrical wiring from the coffeemaker.

Step 4: Secure the Coffee Maker

Hook up the water-supply line. Install the housing. Slide the coffeemaker into place, and secure it with screws
