Welcome and Thank You

Welcome and thank you for purchasing this EdgeStar® wine cooler. Once you complete our easy unit set up by following this manual, it will provide you and your family years of great service.

If you are reading this owner’s manual, you’ve probably already unpacked the unit. Note that you should save the packaging in case you need to safely transport this wine cooler in the future.

In order to assemble this wine cooler, carefully unpack all parts. The only assembly required is that of the handle(s). In order to install a handle, you need a Phillips head screwdriver, the handle(s), and the two installation screws.

Open the door of the wine cooler.

Locate the two screw holes on the inside of the door (they may be partially obscured by the door liner gasket.

Insert the screws into the holes. They should now poke out of the front of the door.

Line up the holes in the handle with the screws and give each screw about 2-4 full turns into the handle.

Now screw the screws in all the way, and your handle is installed!

After you get the handle(s) installed, make sure that your wine cooler is fully unpacked, and position it into your preferred location (remember, for the best conditions for your wine, choose a spot in a cool (room temperature) area, away from direct sunlight leaving about 2-4 inches around all sides, specifically the back for adequate ventilation. Make sure the unit is set on a sturdy surface that can support its weight.

Note: that you can screw in and out the legs to level the unit. You may also want to clean the interior with a solution of mild soap and water and a damp cloth. Then plug the unit in, set the temperature, and fill it with wine.

At what temperatures should you set the wine cooler? Experts differ in opinion, but we recommend low to mid 50’s (F) for whites and mid 60’s (F) for reds. Enjoy!

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 technician.

This wine cooler is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.

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 an electrical outlet.

When positioning the wine cooler, ensure that there is at least a 2” clearance on each side with 4” directly behind the cooler. This will ensure 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.

Please close the cooler door immediately after putting in or taking out wine in order to prevent inside temperature from dramatically changing.

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 /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.

2

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.

Note: The above diagram is for reference onlyyour specific model of wine cooler will likely differ slightly from the diagram above (in light placement, bottle capacity, etc,) but its operation will be essentially the same.

3. Operation

The Temperature Control

Your wine cooler uses a digital control to adjust the thermostat-

Adjust the temperature using the up and down arrows located on the wine cooler.

Interior Light

Your wine cooler is equipped with an interior light with an on/off switch. Turn the light on or off by pressing the switch.

Leveling Legs

Your wine cooler is shipped with leveling legs installed. To adjust these leveling legs, carefully lean the cooler to one side (make sure the cooler is empty and the door is secured) and unscrew the leveling legs to make them longer. Screw them in tighter to make them shorter.

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

4

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. Additional racks may be purchased from your retailer.

Door Lock (not standard on all models)

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

To unlock your cooler, insert the key into the lock and turn 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.

Cleaning the Cooler

Unplug your cooler. Remove all items from it (wine bottles, shelves, etc.)

Clean 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.)

Clean 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 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 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 out of the reach of children. You may want to crack the door slightly to prevent mold growth or odour.

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:

5

Make sure the cooler is turned off and unplugged.

Remove all items.

Remove shelves and any other loose items within the cooler.

Shut the door and tape it closed.

Transport the cooler in a secure, upright position along with its shelves.

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, as this will force the cooler to work even harder, making it less likely to cool your wine properly.

Let any hot foods or drinks cool before placing them inside the cooler.

5. Troubleshooting

Your EdgeStar wine cooler is a thermoelectric refrigeration unit that uses “green” thermoelectric cooling to store your wine under ideal conditions.

What are the benefits of thermoelectric cooling?

Low energy usage

No vibration

Cools with little noisethe only noise produced is by the fans used to dissipate heat.

What are some of its limitations?

Cooling takes longer than with equivalent compressor-based unitsyou must allow 24 hours or more for the unit to reach its lowest temperature

Fans run constantly

Units are more sensitive to ambient temperature, sunlight conditions, and potentially loading conditionsthey may not cool to their theoretical minimum temperature under adverse conditions
