Installing the Wine refrigerator

The wine refrigerator should be installed in accordance with local electrical code requirements. The wine refrigerator should also be placed in a location that is strong enough to support its total weight, keeping in mind that it will weigh substantially more when fully loaded than when empty.

Before you plug the wine refrigerator into a power supply, be sure to let it stand upright for at least 24 hours to allow the compressor’s oils to settle.

Unpacking the Wine refrigerator

WARNING: Use two more people to move and install the wine refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury. Carefully remove the packaging materials. Remove any shipping tape and glue from your wine refrigerator before using. Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of your wine refrigerator.

IMPORTANT: Do not remove any safety, warning, or product information labels from your wine refrigerator.

Types of Installation

This wine refrigerator has been designed for free-standing, or built-in installation. In every case, there must be adequate ventilation and access for service.

Free-standing installation:

A free-standing installation will allow you to install the wine refrigerator in almost any place you desire. You must follow the stated instructions for electrical requirements, and leveling the wine refrigerator.

Built-in installation:

A recessed installation will allow you to install the beverage cooler under a counter or in a kitchen cabinet provided the required clearance space around the beverage cooler is followed.

It is necessary to allow adequate ventilation space around the unit (make sure there is at least some ventilation room for the back of the unit). The following additional items must be observed.

1.Place the wine refrigerator in front of the installation location. Adjust the feet and place the unit flat on the floor or on a platform depending on your installation requirements.

2.If the electrical outlet for the wine refrigerator is behind the cabinet, plug in the wine refrigerator.

3.Push the wine refrigerator into position.

WARNING: Do NOT install the wine refrigerator behind a closed cabinet door.

Important Notes:

Choose a location that has ambient temperatures above 50°F and below 95°F.

Operation outside these temperatures may result in lowered efficiency or cause other adverse effects.

This unit MUST be installed in an area protected from the elements, e.g., wind, rain, water spray or drips.

The wine refrigerator should not be located next to ovens, grills or other high heat sources.

Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord between the wine refrigerator and wall or cabinet.

Installation Clearance Requirements

When installing the wine refrigerator under a counter, follow the recommended spacing dimensions shown.

• To ensure proper service access and ventilation, allow at least 2/5” clearance at the back, 1/5” at top and 1/5” at sides. The installation should allow the unit to be pulled forward for servicing, if necessary.

Electrical Requirements

ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD!

Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.

Never remove the grounding prong from the plug.

Never use an adapter to bypass the grounding prong.

DO NOT use an extension cord.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire, electrical shock, or death.

Before you move your wine refrigerator into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection: A standard electrical supply (115 V, 60Hz), properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required.

It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your wine refrigerator, be provided. Use receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.

The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 3 Amps.

Recommended grounding method

For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. It is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3-prong grounding plug. To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating 3-pronged wall socket, and grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall socket is not available, it is the personal responsibility of the customer to have a properly grounded, 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.

Leveling the Wine Refrigerator

It is important for the wine refrigerator to be leveled in order to work properly. It can be raised or lowered by rotating the plastic sheaths around each of the feet on the bottom of the machine. If you find that the surface is not level, rotate the feet until the wine refrigerator becomes level .You may need to make several adjustments to level it. We recommend using a carpenter’s level to check the machine.

1.Place a carpenter’s level on top of the product to see if the wine refrigerator is level from front to back and side to side.

2.Adjust the height of the feet as follows:

Turn the leveling feet to the right to lower that side of the refrigerator. Turn the leveling feet to the left to raise that side of the refrigerator.

IMPORTANT: Once you are ready to install it in a cabinet or directly on the floor, you must adjust the feet to level the wine refrigerator.

Normal Sounds

Your new wine refrigerator may make sounds that are not familiar to you. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces like the floor, walls can make the sounds seem louder than they actually are. The following describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you and what may be making them.

Ratting noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or the water line, Items stored on top of the wine refrigerator can also make noises.

The high efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or highpitched sound.

Water running from the evaporator to the water bin may make a splashing sound.

As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your wine refrigerator.

You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.

Defrosting

Note that under most refrigerating settings, the unit will automatically defrost under most ambient conditions. However, on colder settings, some frost may build up. Additionally, the more humid the ambient conditions, the more frost may build up. Keep the door closed as much as possible and avoid opening the door unnecessarily to minimize frost build-up.

If frost is preventing the door from closing properly, you may need to power the unit off until the frost melts. Use a soft absorbent towel to dry the unit.

WARNING: Never attempt to remove frost with a sharp object!

IMPORTANT:

Do not touch the power plug when your hands are wet.

Never unplug the unit by pulling on the plug.

Preparing the Wine Refrigerator for Storage

If the wine refrigerator will not be used for a long time, or is to be moved to another place, it will be necessary to defrost the unit and dry the interior.

1.Disconnect the cooler from the power supply by removing the power plug from the wall socket.

2.Leave the door open to allow for air circulation and to prevent mold, mildew and unpleasant smells.

CAUTION: Store the unit out of the reach of children. If you have children, you may want to take additional precautions such as removing the door to prevent a child from being trapped inside the cooler!
