Important Safety Information

READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

FOR YOUR SAFETY

Two people should be used when moving the wine cooler.

Remove interior and exterior packaging prior to installation.

Before connecting the appliance to a power source, let it stand upright for approximately 4 hours; this will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation.

Place your wine cooler on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To level your wine cooler, adjust the front leveling leg at the bottom of the unit.

Locate the wine cooler away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the unit to perform improperly.

Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.

Plug the wine cooler into an exclusive, properly installed-grounded wall 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 service centre.

Do not cover shelves with aluminum foil or any other material which may prevent air circulation.

In order for the cabinet to remain efficient do not over load it.

Do not open the door unless necessary.

Should the wine cooler be stored without use for long periods, it is suggested, after careful cleaning, to leave the door ajar. This will allow air to circulate inside the cabinet in order to avoid possible formations of condensation, mold and odors.

IMPORTANT WARNING

Risk of fire or explosion due to puncturing of refrigerant tubing. Do not use sharp opjects to aid in defrost. Please handle with care. Keep flammable materials and vapors such as gasoline away from the unit. Use nonflammable cleaner.

Disposal of this unit should be in accordance with federal and local regulations.

Operating Instructions

SETTING THE TEMPERATURE

The temperature of the wine cooler is controlled by adjusting the thermostat control knob on the back of the unit. To achieve maximum cooling temperature quickly:

Turn the temperature control knob clockwise to the widest, darkest part of the graduated blue control dial.

Allow the unit to run at this setting for 3 - 4 hours.

When maximum cooling is achieved, turn the temperature control knob to the middle position on the graduated blue control dial, as per Fig. A.

To turn the wine cooler off, turn the control knob to the “0” position, as per Fig. B. If the wine cooler will not be used for an extended period of time, it is recommended to unplug the unit and leave the door partially open to avoid possible formation of odors inside the unit.

Note: Wait 3 - 5 minutes before restarting the unit if operation has been interrupted.

Note: On the graduated blue dial, the thicker, darker blue indicates colder temperatures and the thinner, lighter blue indicates warmer temperatures. The wine cooler temperature will vary depending on the quantity of bottles stored in the unit and the frequency that the door is opened.

INTERIOR LIGHT

To manually operate the interior light, press the light switch situated on the right side of the interior light housing on the ceiling of the unit. This will allow the light to remain on while the door is closed.

Note: The light will default to off. It can be turned on to run continually. Due to energy efficiency requirements for a wine cooler in this size, there is no option to have the light turn on when the door opens.

DEFROST

This unit is equipped with an automatic defrost function and does not require manual defrosting. Defrost water from the unit is channeled into a drip tray located above the compressor. Heat transfer from the compressor causes the defrost water to evaporate.

SHELF INSTRUCTIONS

To remove a shelf from its locked position, lift the rear of the shelf upward and then slide the shelf out of the unit.

To replace the shelf, ensure it is resting securely on the support brackets and then push inward until the shelf locks into place.
