    Since I have one I thought it would be easy to look up in the owner's manual, but it only describes them as "fixing bolts" without giving the size of the bolts. Their long with an allen wrench head, without dismantling mine, I want to say maybe 1/4 inch thread and they require a washer too. Sorry I can't be of more help, but I would just try a few sizes and see.

    Here's a page from the manual.

    I've got the bolts out on mine (not an xl, but should be the same). I'll send you the measurements when I get home if you don't have an answer already.

    Ok. Now I'm not an expert on this stuff, so take this with a grain of salt. I'm pretty sure that it's a 55mm long hex head cap screw (Class 8.8 DIN933) with an M8 body diameter (8mm measured outside thread diameter) and a thread pitch of 0.8 threads per mm. Hope this is right and helps.

    If you have any of the bolts then take one to the hardware and have it matched. If you dont have any bolts, take the baseboard to the hardware and find ones that fit. Make sure they are not so long as to protrude through the bottom and hit the counter top.
