IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.

This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.

This appliance is equipped with a power cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.

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.

Operating Instructions

Wine

Storage

The *maximum capacity of the DWC516 is 51 (750ml) wine bottles.

*When stocked as per instructions and when the humidors are not in use.

In order to achieve the maximum storage capacity of fiftyone (51) bottles, it will be necessary to position the bottles alternately on the upper five (5) shelves, as shown in Fig A. This will allow for the storage of nine (9) 750 ml bottles per shelf in each of the top five shelves, and six

(6) bottles on the bottom shelf (Fig B) for a total storage capacity of fifty-one (51) wine bottles.

If humidity conditions are low, it will be necessary to use the humidors. Fill the humidors about 3/4 full with fresh water, and place one humidor on the bottom shelf of each section. Check the water level occasionally and refill as necessary.

NOTE: The use of the humdiors will reduce the storage capacity of the shelves on which they are placed on by

Shelf Instructions

IMPORTANT!

Do not cover shelves with aluminum foil or any other material that will prevent adequate air circulation within the cabinet.

To remove a shelf from it’s locked position, remove the shelf stoppers located on either side of the shelf as shown in Fig C, and pull outward.

To re-install, ensure the shelf is resting securely on the support brackets and push the shelf in completely, then re-install the shelf stoppers.

Please Note: The bottom shelf is not secured in place (locked). Do not attempt to pull on the shelf when it is stocked.

Preparing the

Enclosure

Electrical Requirements:

The appliance must be connected to an individual properly grounded electrical outlet, protected by a 15 ampere circuit breaker or time delay fuse.

Important: It is recommended that you install the wine cooler in a location that allows the door to have a greater then 45° opening swing. A limited door swing will prevent the shelves from sliding out as intended, and may lead to damaging the door gasket.

The rough cabinet opening must be on a level floor area and at least 24” deep* by 12-1/2” wide. The opening should also have a height of at least 34-1/2”.

The electrical outlet may be positioned from within either side of the adjacent cabinetry, or the rear of the shaded area (as shown in Fig C.).

Note: If the electrical outlet is surface mounted (not flush) within the enclosure, the depth requirment for the installation will be affected.

If the electrical outlet is located inside the adjacent cabinetry, cut a 1-1/2” diameter hole to admit the power cord.
