Important Safeguards

When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:

Before use, please read and follow all instructions

Do not use if the power supply cord is damaged. If damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or a similarly qualified person.

This wine cooler is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision. Young children must be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.

Ensure the cooler is unplugged before cleaning or if not in use.

To clean the cooler use only mild detergents or glass cleaning products. Never use harsh detergents or solvents.

It is not recommended to use this wine cooler with an extension cord or power strip. Please ensure that the appliance is plugged directly into the electrical outlet.

This cooler is designed to store wine bottles. If food is placed inside, ensure that there is sufficient airflow between items. Also note that the temperature range for this cooler is optimized for wine and beverage storage. Perishable food items may require a different storage environment.

Do not place hot food or drinks into the wine cooler before they cool down to room temperature.

Close the cooler door immediately after putting in any items so the inside temperature will not rise dramatically.

Avoid subjecting the cooler to external heat sources or direct sunlight.

For a stable installation, make sure the cooler is placed on a flat, level, and solid surface.

Make sure that the surface on which the wine cooler is placed is strong enough to hold the wine cooler once it is fully loaded with wine bottles.

Do not place any other appliances on top of the wine cooler.

The wine cooler is an electrical appliance. To avoid injury or death from electrical shock, do not operate the wine cooler with wet hands, while standing on a wet surface, or while standing in water.

Do not use outdoors or in wet or moist conditions.

Do not turn the cooler upside down, on its side, or 45° or more off level.

Never pull the power cord to disconnect it from the outlet. Grasp the plug and pull it from the outlet.

Never lift or carry the wine cooler by the power cord.

Keep the power cord away from heated surfaces.

This wine cooler is designed for household, non-commercial use only.

Do not plug this cooler into the power socket before set up is completed.

An empty cooler can be dangerous for children. If disposing of the cooler remove gaskets, latches, lids and the entire door from your unused appliance, or take other action to ensure that children cannot become trapped inside.

If your model of wine cooler is equipped with a lock, take care to keep the keys away from children.

Do not cut or remove the third prong (the grounding prong) from the power cord.

The cord should be secured behind the unit and should not be left exposed or dangling.

Do not move this cooler without emptying it of its contents and securing the door in a closed position.

First Time Operating Instructions

Before use, make sure all packaging labels and materials are all removed from the unit. Be sure to keep track of all included parts and pieces before discarding packaging materials. It is advised that you keep the original box and packing materials in case you are ever to move or ship the unit in the future.

Let the unit stand for at least 24 hours before use; this allows the cooling components to settle from transit. The instruction manual should be thoroughly read before use.

LCD Display

Up and Down Buttons

Using the controls:

Use the left side controls to adjust the temperature. The temperature displayed will be in Fahrenheit. This wine cooler has an actual temperature range from 50°F to 56°F. Whether your wine cooler can reach the actual set temperature depends on the ambient environmental conditions.

Press the button on the left side of the control panel to lower the temperature by 1 degree increments. The set temperature will flash for a few seconds, and then revert to the ambient inner temperature of the wine cooler.

Allow at least 24 hours for the temperature to acclimate, and before storing your wines.

Press the button on the left side of the control panel to increase the temperature by 1 degree increments.

Press the button to turn on and off the inner light.

When the temperature of the unit becomes too low, the LED will display “LL”, likewise, when the temperature is too high, it will display “HH”. The unit will display “ER” in the event of an error or power disruption.

Tip: To conserve energy, always set the display above 48; otherwise, the inner fans will run continuously.

Note: The right side controls will have little or no bearing on the inner temperature. It is recommended you set the right LCD at 55.

Important Note: This unit will operate best in a room with a temperature less than 90°F (32°C).
