INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

BEFORE USING YOUR WINE CHILLER
 Remove the exterior and interior packing.
 Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
 6 Burgundy Bottle Shelves
 8 Standard Bottle Shelves
 1 Small Standard Bottle Shelf
 1 Bottom Shelf
 2 Keys
 1 Stainless Steel Handle Assembly with 2 Screws, 2 Flat Washers and 2 Lock Washers
 1 Door Lower Hinge Bracket for Door Opening from the Right Side
 1 Instruction Manual
 Before connecting the Wine Chiller to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately
2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling
during transportation.
 Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
 Install the handle on the left side of the door.

INSTALLATION OF YOUR WINE CHILLER
 This appliance is designed to be free standing or recessed with a minimum clearance of ¼
inch on each side and at the back.
 This appliance is not designed for built-in installation (zero clearances).
 Place your Wine Chiller on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To
level your Wine Chiller, adjust the front leveling legs at the bottom of the Wine Chiller.
 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.
 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.


ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Warning
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 115/120 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.

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.

SURGE PROTECTOR
Most electrical appliances use a series of electric control boards to operate. These boards are very
susceptible to power surges and could be damaged or destroyed.
If the appliance is going to be used in an area or if your city / country is prone to power surges /
outages; it is suggested that you use a power surge protector for all electrical devices / appliances
you use. The surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect the
appliance it is connected to. If you have any questions regarding the type and size of surge protector
needed contact a licensed electrician in your area.
Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered defect and will void your
product warranty.

 INSTALLING STAINLESS STEEL HANDLE
This wine cellar includes a stainless steel handle that is not required to operate this unit.
To install the handle please follow the below instructions:
For your convenience the screws used in the installation of the handle have been put in place at the
factory.
1. Pull away the door gasket in the area where the handle is to be installed on the left side as
shown below in Illustration # 1. The gasket is easily displaced by hand, no tools are
necessary.
2. Align the handle with the screws installed. Tighten the screws using a Phillips head
screwdriver until the handle sets both flush and secured tightly against the door frame. (DO
NOT over tighten as this will cause damage to the handle assembly).
3. Replace the door gasket to its original position.
4. If you choose not to use the handle supplied, simply follow step 1 to access the installation
screws and remove them and then place the two decorative plugs into the two holes
