Remove the exterior and interior packings, wipe the outside thoroughly with a soft dry cloth and the inside with a wet, lukewarm cloth. Avoid placing the cabinet in a narrow recess or near any heat source, direct sunlight, or moisture. Let air circulate freely around the cabinet. Keep the rear of the wine cooler 5 inches away from the wall.


1.Select a place with a strong, level floor.

2.Allow 5 inches of space between the back of the wine cooler and any adjacent wall.

3.Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating. Heat sources nearby will cause higher electricity consumption.


To avoid vibration, the cabinet must be set level. To start the wine cooler, turn the temperature control to the position corresponding to the desired cooling. The wine cooler temperature will vary depending on the quantity of bottles stored and on the frequency with which the door is opened.

Turn the control to the “OFF” position to temporarily disconnect the cooling cycle. When the wine cooler is not to be used for a long period of time, disconnect the plug and leave the door partially open.

NOTE: Wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting if operation has been interrupted.


Your wine cooler is designed with an “Auto-Cycle” defrost system. What is Auto Cycle defrost?

The refrigerated surfaces of the fresh food compartment defrost automatically, during the “off” cycle of the cold control. (thermostat) Defrost water from the fresh food compartment is disposed of automatically, by means of being channeled onto a drip tray located on the compressor. Heat transfer from the compressor causes the defrost water to evaporate.




To clean the inside, use a soft cloth and a solution of a tablespoon of baking soda to one quart of water, or a mild soap suds solution, or some mild detergent. Wash glide out shelves in a mild detergent solution, then dry and wipe with a soft cloth. Clean the outside with a soft damp cloth and some mild detergent or appliance cleaner.

Vacation Time

For short vacation periods, leave the control knobs at their usual settings. During longer absences,

(a)remove bottles,

(b)disconnect from electrical outlet,

(c)clean the wine cooler thoroughly,

(d)leave door open to avoid possible formations of condensate, mold or odors.

Power Failure

Most power failures are corrected within an hour or two and will not affect your wine cooler temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off. During power failures of longer duration, take steps to protect your wine.

If You Move

Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the wine cooler. To avoid damaging the leveling screws, turn them all the way into the base.


This unit is equipped with the following shelves;

1 flat type (regular) refrigerator shelf

1 flat type half shelf

1 (staggered) lower shelf

Some Important Rules for the Correct Use of the Wine Cooler

Beverages should be stored in sealed bottles.

Don’t overload the cabinet.

Don’t open the door unless necessary.

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

DO NOT cover shelves with aluminum foil or any other shelf covering material which may prevent air circulation.
