4 Product Operation

Air Flow

IMPORTANT

The unit requires proper air flow to perform at its highest efficiency. Do not block the front grille or internal fans at any time, or the unit will not perform as expected. Do not install the unit behind a door.

Initial Startup

All U-Line controls are preset at the factory. Initial startup requires no adjustments.

IMPORTANT

U-Line recommends allowing the unit to run overnight before loading refrigerator or freezer with product.

To turn the unit on:

Turn the control dial found in the center of the grille to a MID setting, number 3 or 4 on the controller knob.

To turn the unit off, turn the control dial counterclockwise until hearingl a “click”. It may take some force to get the control to “click”.

Control Dial

Wine Captain Models provide three temperature zones within the cabinet to satisfy the specific storage requirements of your finest wines.

The control dial sets a single continuous set-point temperature. This set point is for the middle zone, it is a base number used by the controller to maintain the multiple temperature zones in the unit. The factory default MID setting set-point for Beverage Center and Refrigerator models is 38°F. The factory default MID setting set-point for Wine Captain models is 50°F. The set-point temperature is a gauge for further temperature adjustments.
