IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

Before the wine chiller is used, it must be properly positioned and installed as described in this manual, so read the manual carefully. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or injury when using the wine chiller, follow basic precautions, including the following:

Plug into a grounded 3-prongoutlet, do not remove grounding prong, do not use an adapter, and do not use an extension cord

Replace all panels before operating

It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your wine chiller, be provided. Use receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain

Never clean wine chiller parts with flammable fluids. These fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion. And do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.

Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, make sure the power line of the unit is disconnected.

Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet

Unplug the wine chiller or disconnect the power before cleaning or servicing. Failure to do so can result in electrical shock or death.

Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your wine chiller unless it is specifically recommended in this material. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.

Use two or more people to move and install the wine chiller. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.

To ensure proper ventilation for your wine chiller, the front of the unit must be completely unobstructed. Choose a well-ventilatedarea with temperatures above 550F (130C) and below 900F (320C). This unit must be installed in an area protected from the elements, such as wind, rain, water spray or sunlight.

The wine chiller should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.

The wine chiller must be installed with all electrical, water and drain connections in accordance with state and local codes. A standard electrical supply (115 V AC only, 60 Hz), properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances is required.

Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord of the wine chiller.

The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amperes.

It is important for the wine chiller to be leveled in order to work properly. You may need to make several adjustments to level it.

All installation must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.

Make certain that the pipes are not pinched or kinked or damaged during installation.

Check for leaks after connection.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Before Using Your Freezer

Remove the exterior and interior packing.

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

1 Storage Basket

1 Divider (CF100 / CF101PS only)

1 Instruction Manual

1 Plastic Scraper

Before connecting the freezer 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.

Installing Your Freezer

This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.

Place your freezer on a floor that is strong enough to support the freezer when it is fully loaded.

Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the freezer, which allows the proper air circulation.

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

Avoid locating the freezer in moist areas.

Plug the freezer 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.

After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2~3 hours before placing food in the freezer compartment.

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 freezer should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this freezer 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.

This freezer requires a standard 115Volt~60Hz electrical outlet with three-prongground.

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

Never unplug the freezer by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.

Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.

The “RED” light indicates that the freezer is properly connected to the electrical power. The light indicates power supply, and will glow even if the temperature control dial is turned to “OFF”, or the compressor has failed to work and the compartment is not being cooled.

OPERATING YOUR FREEZER

Temperature Control

Your freezer has one control for regulating the temperature. The temperature control is located on the lower right hand corner.

The first time you turn the unit on, switch on the Fast Freeze switch (amber) and run for at least 2 hours before putting frozen foods inside. This will ensure the cabinet is thoroughly chilled before food is put in.

Turn off the Fast Freeze switch.

The range of the temperature control is from position" OFF", “1” the warmest to "5" the coldest. Adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suits your needs. The setting of “3” should be appropriate for home or office freezer use.

To turn the freezer off, turn the power switch to "OFF".

NOTE:

If the unit is unplugged, lost power, or turned off; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the freezer will not start.

Large amounts of food will lower the cooling efficiency of the appliance.

If you choose to change the thermostat setting, adjust thermostat control by one numerical increment at a time. Allow several hours for temperature to stabilize between adjustments.

The Fast Freeze Switch (Amber)

The light glows while the Fast Freeze switch is in the ‘ON’ position.

The switch overrides the thermostat and will make the compressor operate continuously, lowering the cabinet temperature still further than the thermostat setting.

This switch is used to freeze unfrozen food in appreciable quantities.

When loading the freezer, freeze only three pounds of fresh food per cubic foot of freezer space at one time.

Distribute packages to be frozen evenly throughout the freezer.

It is not necessary to adjust the thermostat setting when using the Fast Freeze switch.

Defrosting Your Freezer

When? For the most efficient operation and minimum energy consumption, defrost the freezer when the frost on the freezer walls is excessive or ¼ to ½ inch thick.

Choose a time when the stock of frozen food is low.

CAUTION

Do not use boiling water because it may damage the plastic parts. In addition, never use a sharp or metallic instrument to remove frost as it may damage the cooling coils and will void the warranty. We recommend using the plastic scraper provided with your unit.

Remove the frozen food from the freezer and place it in a cooler to protect the food.

Turn the thermostat knob to “OFF”.

Unplug the freezer. The Power Supply light should be off (red light out).

During defrosting, the ice melts into the cabinet.

Remove the drain plug on the inside floor of the freezer by pulling straight out.

Place a shallow pan outside drain outlet. The defrost water will drain out.

Check the pan occasionally so the water does not overflow.

Clean the interior of the freezer.

Replace the plug on the inside floor.

Reset the thermostat to desired setting.

Allow the cabinet to cool for one hour.

Switch on the Fast Freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.

Return food to the freezer.

HELPFUL HINT:

Defrosting usually takes a few hours. Leaving the door open will help speed the process. Also, pouring warm water (not boiling) on the ice/frost will help speed melting. If you must use a scraperplease use caution - it is very easy to damage the freezer compartment and void your warranty.

The Freezer Compartment

This compartment is designed for the long-termstorage of frozen food. Storage time is up to three months.

The storage life of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be exceeded. The instructions regarding the care of frozen foods should be followed when defrosting the freezer.

Pre-packedcommercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen foods manufacturer’s instructions for a three star frozen food storage compartment or home freezer.

Place frozen food into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. If there are instructions on the packet, carefully follow these instructions regarding storage times.

The freezer door is susceptible to breaking due to excessive ice build up. Be sure to defrost when the ice reaches ¼ to ½ inch thick.

A storage basket is provided for the organization of odd-shapeditems. To reach other packages in the freezer, just slide the basket to one side, or lift it out.
