INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

BEFORE USING YOUR BEVERAGE COOLER

Remove the exterior and interior packing.

Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:

2 Beverage Shelves

1 Beverage Shelf with Temperature Control Panel

1 Instruction Manual

Before connecting the Beverage Cooler to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation.

Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.

INSTALLATION OF YOUR BEVERAGE COOLER

This appliance is designed to be for free standing installation.

Place your Beverage Cooler on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To level your Beverage Cooler, adjust the front leveling legs at the bottom of the Beverage Cooler.

Locate the Beverage Cooler away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the protective coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the unit not to perform properly.

Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.

Do not let anything cover or obstruct the ventilation grilles.

Plug the Beverage Cooler into an exclusive, properly installed-groundedwall outlet. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized Avanti Products service center.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

Warning

Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is damaged, have it replaced by an authorized Avanti Products service center.

This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a three-prongplug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.

Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.

This appliance requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong.Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded. When a standard2-prongwall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded3-prongwall outlet.

The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental injury.

The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug the appliance by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord.

EXTENSION CORD

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do not use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed,3-wiregrounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.

SURGE PROTECTOR

Most electrical appliances use a series of electric control boards to operate. These boards are very susceptible to power surges and could be damaged or destroyed.

If the appliance is going to be used in an area or if your city / country is prone to power surges / outages; it is suggested that you use a power surge protector for all electrical devices / appliances you use. The surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect the appliance it is connected to. If you have any questions regarding the type and size of surge protector needed contact a licensed electrician in your area.

Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered defect and will void your product warranty.

OPERATING YOUR BEVERAGE COOLER

It is recommended you install the Beverage Cooler in a place where the ambient temperature is between 72-78degrees Fahrenheit.
