Lights under cabinet b(Roo 23WS)

A new mod I just did. I installed reading lights under the cabinets (over the U-shape table).
I had to lift the bottom panel of the cabinets to get to the wires. There are two panels and the wires are tucked between the two......Anyway, once I found a positive and negative wire, it was a breeze.
I do have to say the bulbs that came with the lights (1056, I think) were producing a lot of heat, and my DW mentioned it to me after touching the cabinet bottom panel. I ordered LED equivalent from eBay, and these don't produce any kind of heat.....GREAT!

This is just another issue I have with this website! Now I have another item to add to my "to do" list.😄

Nice job with the lights!

What's it take to lift the cabinet bottom? (And I assume you meant you lifted the TOP panel of two that make up the BOTTOM of the cabinet?

Kind of easy.....In the upper cabinets, remove the two moldings that holds the piece of board behind the electric switch panel, and then start lifting the top bottom panel starting from the left .....Welcome to a world of wires !!!

My Roo is gone, I'm in a Mini Lite now, so I'm guessing I don't have quite the same setup as yours. I'm more interested in the moldings and the lifting. Are you saying you just pried out the molding and lifted the panel? The molding was stapled/nailed? There was nothing glued that you had to deal with?

As you said: pried and lifted.....no glue.

Thanks. I'm surprised about no glue, but maybe it's just the bottom panel that's glued. Would make some sense, so you could still get to the wiring from the top panel. But I don't see a lot of sense in the things on these TT's!!
