• Consult a qualified electrician or service technician if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
• If the outlet is a standard 2-prong wall outlet, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
• For best operation, plug this appliance into its own electrical outlet to prevent flickering of lights, blowing of fuse or tripping of circuit breaker.
• Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.
• Do not use an adapter plug with this appliance.
• 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.
It is important that your wine cooler is level. To level the wine cooler:
1) Move the wine cooler to its final location.
2) Have someone gently lean on the front of the wine cooler to take some of
the weight off of the leveling leg.

WARNING! Extreme Weight Hazard! Use 2 or more people when moving the
wine cooler.
