IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

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

BEFORE USE, PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS FOR

THIS WINE COOLER

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.

When positioning the wine cooler, ensure that there is at least a 2” clearance at the sides and a 4” clearance at the back of the cooler. This will allow for adequate ventilation of heat from the back of the cooler.

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.

2

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.

3.Installation

1.Remove all interior and exterior packaging.

2.Set up your wine cooler on a level surface. Make sure you have at least 2” clearance on both sides and 4” clearance in the back for ventilation.

3.Clean the interior surface with a little bit of lukewarm water and a soft cloth.

4.If you desire, install the handle as outlined below (if your cooler comes with a handle.)

5.Insert the power cord into the power socket. Make sure the power socket is a grounded 115V~AC / 60Hz socket.

6.Fill the wine cooler with your choice of wine bottles. Allow up to 24 hours of operation for the bottles to reach the desired temperature.

4.Operation

The Temperature Control

Your wine cooler uses one of two systems for adjusting the thermostat:

Digital control-

Adjust the temperature using the up and down arrows located on the door of the wine cooler. While you are using the arrows, the temperature you are setting appears on the digital display. After you finish setting the temperature, the digital display will show the current temperature within the cooler.

Manual control-

Use the temperature adjustment knob located inside the wine cooler to change the temperature. Turn the knob clockwise to lower the temperature or counter clockwise to raise the temperature.

Interior Light

Your wine cooler has an interior light with an on/off switch. Turn the light on or off by pressing the switch. On digital control units the light switch will be located on the temperature control, on the outside of the door. On manual control units, the light switch will be located on the temperature control, inside the unit.

Door Lock

Some models of wine cooler have a factory installed lock with keys. The lock is inset into the door. To lock your cooler, insert the key into the lock and turn the key counter clockwise until the metal tab is fully extended.

To unlock your cooler, insert the key into the lock and turn clockwise until the metal tab is fully retracted back into the door.

Caution: Make sure to keep the key in a safe place and out of reach of childrento prevent child entrapment.

Levelling Legs

Your wine cooler is shipped with four levelling legs installed. To adjust these levelling legs, carefully lean the cooler to one side (make sure the cooler is

5

empty and the door is secured) and unscrew the levelling legs to make them longer. Screw them in tighter to make them shorter.

Note: This cooler is not designed to operate with the levelling legs removed.

Handle

Some models of wine cooler are shipped with a towel bar-style handle. To install the handle, you will need a Phillips head screwdriver.

Look at the left side of the door frame, facing outwards. There are two small holes in the frame. Take the handle and hold it up to the door frame so that the holes in the handle line up with the holes in the door frame. While holding the handle with one hand, insert a screw through the top hole in the handle and screw it into the top hole in the door frame. Then insert a screw in the bottom hole in the handle and screw it into the bottom hole in the door frame. Now insert the small “caps” included into the holes in the handle.

Note: On some models, the handle can be installed in either side of the door frame. To install the handle in the right side of the door frame, use a small flat head screwdriver to pry the caps out of their holes and follow the above directions.

Caution: If you do not feel comfortable making this installation yourself, have a qualified person do the installation for you.

Bottle Capacity

Bottle capacity listed for your wine cooler is an estimated maximum capacity based on standard 750 mL wine bottles. For any other size bottles, capacity will vary.

Racks

Please note that the racks for your cooler have a top and a bottom. If you are having trouble fitting the stated number of bottles in the cooler (provided you have standard wine bottles), try flipping over one or more racks.

Also note that your wine cooler (depending upon the model) may have more

“slots” for racks than the number of racks provided with the unit.

Reversing the Door Swing

Single door wine cooler models come with the hinges factory installed on the right side, so the door opens from the left side, swinging open to the right. The hinges can be reversed, to swing open from the right. To reverse the hinges, you need a flat head screwdriver and a Phillips head screwdriver.

Please call service for further instructions about reversing the door swing. Note: dual door models do not feature reversible doors.

Caution: If you do not feel comfortable reversing the hinges yourself, have a qualified person do it for you.

Cleaning the Air Filter

Your wine cooler has a washable air filter over the air intake in the back of the unit. Periodically, this air filter should be cleaned. You can remove it from the cooler and gently wash it in a solution of mild detergent and water. Make sure it is completely dry before reinstalling it over the air intake.

Alternatively, for a quick cleaning, you can vacuum the air filter.

6

Cleaning the Cooler

Turn the temperature control to “off” and unplug your cooler. Remove all items from it (wine bottles, shelves, etc.)

Wash the inside surfaces with a mild cleaner. We suggest you use either warm water alone, or a baking soda solution (try mixing 2 tablespoons of baking soda into a quart of water.)

Wash the wire shelves/trays (if you have them) with a mild detergent solution.

Clean the wooden shelves/trays (if you have them) with a soft cloth and some wood cleaner.

Wash the outside of the cooler with a mild detergent solution.

Dry any wet parts with a soft cloth.

Caution: make sure to minimize the exposure of water to any electronic or control parts.

Extended Periods of Disuse

Your cooler can operate safely for three weeks or longer without any adjustments. However, if the cooler is going to be left alone for several months, you should unplug it and clean it according to the instructions above. Pay special attention to drying the interior.

Now set the unit aside somewhere safe. You may want to crack the door slightly to prevent mold growth or odor.

Transporting the Cooler

The ideal packaging for you cooler is its original packaging. If possible, keep this packaging handy and repack the cooler as it was initially packed if you need to transport it.

If you do not have the original packaging:

Make sure the cooler is turned off and unplugged.

Remove all items.

Tape down the shelves and any other loose items within the cooler.

Shut the door and tape it closed.

Transport the cooler in a secure, upright position.

Protect the outside of the cooler with Styrofoam, cardboard, a blanket, etc.

Energy Efficiency Tips

Locate your cooler in the coolest area of the room.

Locate your cooler away from direct sunlight or any heat-producing sources. Let any hot foods or drinks cool before placing them inside the cooler.
