•
•
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
or injury when using your appliance, follow
these basic precautions:
Read all instructions before using the Wine Chiller.
DANGER or WARNING: Risk of child entrapment.
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
appliances are still dangerous . . . even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days”.
Before you throw away your old Wine Chiller: Take off the door. Leave the
shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.
Never clean appliance parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire
hazard or explosion.
Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Do not repair or replace any part of the refrigerator or attempt any servicing unless
specifically recommended in the user-maintenance instructions or in published userrepair instructions. Replace the fuse with the same type.

Before Using Your Wine Chiller
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
• 4 Shelves
• 1 Instruction Manual
Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installation of Your Wine Chiller
This Wine Chiller is designed to be free standing installation only, and should not be recessed or
built-in (Fully recessed).
Place your Wine Chiller on a surface that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded.
Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the refrigerator, which allows the proper
air circulation to cool the heat sink.
Locate the Wine Chiller away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator,
etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical
consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the unit not to perform
properly.
This Wine Chiller uses thermoelectric refrigeration technology (no compressor) and is not
designed for storage in hot areas like garages, warehouses or outdoors since it is designed to
operate at a maximum of 30 degrees below the ambient temperature.
Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
Plug the Wine Chiller into an exclusive, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not under any
circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions
concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an
authorized Avanti Products service center.
After plugging the Wine Chiller into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2-3 hours before
placing any items in the compartment.

Electrical Connection
aWarninga
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is
damaged, have it replaced by an authorized Avanti Products service center.
This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the
possibility of electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This appliance requires a standard 115 Volt AC / 60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong. Have
the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly
grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation
to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent
accidental injury.
The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also
prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never
unplug the appliance by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from
the receptacle. Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end.
When moving the appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord.
¾
Extension Cord
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do
not use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at
least 10 amperes.
6
OPERATING YOUR WINE CHILLER
It is recommended you install the Wine Chiller in a place where the ambient temperature is between
23º-26ºC/ 72º-78ºF. If the ambient temperature is above or below recommended temperatures, the
performance of the unit may be affected. For example, placing your unit in extreme cold or hot
conditions may cause interior temperatures to fluctuate. The range of 8º-18ºC/46º-64ºF may not be
reached.

NOTE:
• When you use the wine chiller for the first time or restart the wine chiller after having been shut off
for a long time, there could be a few degrees variance between the temperature you select and
the one indicated on the LCD readout. This is normal and it is due to the length of the activation
time. Once the wine chiller is running for a few hours everything will be back to normal.
¾ Storage Capacity
NOTE: You can place 18 standard bottles in this wine chiller.
Many bottles may differ in size and dimensions. As such the actual number of bottles you may be able
to store may vary. Bottle capacities are approximate maximums when storing traditional Bordeaux
750ml bottles and include bulk storage.
¾ Interior Light
You can turn the interior light ON or OFF by pushing the button marked with the “bulb” symbol .
The light will be turned off automatically if it remains ON for 10 minutes. You have to push the button
again and the light will turn back on.

Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of
your appliance if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be
off for a longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps to protect your contents.

Energy Saving Tips
The Wine Chiller should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing
appliances, and out of the direct sunlight.
One characteristic of thermoelectric units is the length of time it requires to recover from having
the door opened and shut frequently. It may be necessary to wait longer for the temperature to
return to its former level once the door has been opened for too long. This is normal for this type
of unit.
Thermoelectric technology costs just pennies to operate. It is environmentally friendly due to the
lack of CFC’s.

INSTRUCCIONES DE SEGURIDAD
ATENCION
INSTRUCCIONES PARA
LA CONEXION A TIERRA
Este aparato electrodoméstico debe estar conectado a tierra. En caso de un cortocircuito eléctrico, la
conexión a tierra reduce el riesgo de choque eléctrico proporcionando un cable a tierra con una
enchufe de conexión a tierra. Este enchufe debe estar conectado en un tomacorriente instalado
correctamente y conectado a tierra.
ADVERTENCIA – El uso inadecuado del enchufe de conexión a tierra puede resultar en un riesgo de
choque eléctrico. Consulte con un electricista o persona de reparaciones competente si no
comprenden bien las instrucciones de conexión a tierra o si existe alguna duda sobre si el aparato
esta conectado a tierra correctamente.
NO USE UN CORDON DE
PROLONGACION ELECTRICA
Use un tomacorriente de pared exclusivo. No conecte su vinera a cordones de prolongación eléctrica
o junto a cualquier otro electrodoméstico en el mismo tomacorriente de pared.
ADVERTENCIA IMPORTANTE:
Una vinera vacía es una atracción muy peligrosa para los niños. Saque todas las juntas,
pestillos, tapas o puerta de todo electrodoméstico que no esté en uso, o tome alguna
medida para asegurar que no presente peligro.
INSTRUCCIONES DE INSTALACION
Saque los embalajes exteriores, limpie bien el exterior con un paño suave seco, y el interior con un
paño húmedo y tibio. Evite colocar la vinera cerca de una fuente de calor, luz de sol directa, o lugar
húmedo.
Ubicación
1. Seleccione un lugar con su piso fuerte y nivelado.
2. Deje cinco pulgadas de espacio entre la parte posterior de la vinera y toda pared contigua.
3. Las bodegas termoeléctricas necesitan cierto tiempo de recuperación cuando la puerta se
abre y se deja abierta por mucho tiempo. Esto es normal para este tipo de unidad.
4. Evite la luz directa del sol o calor. La luz directa del sol puede afectar la capa de acrílico.
Las fuentes de calor en su proximidad provocarán un consumo mayor de electricidad.
5. Para un mejor desempeño, nivele la vinera utilizando las patas ajustables o tornillos
niveladores.
OPERACION
Para evitar vibraciones, el compartimiento interior debe estar bien nivelado. La temperatura variará
dependiendo de la cantidad de botellas almacenadas y la frecuencia con que se abre la puerta.
Cuando la vinera no se use por un período largo, desconecte el enchufe y deje la puerta entreabierta.
