IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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.

Before you throw away your old Wine Chiller: Remove 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.

∼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.

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. 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.
OPERACION
Para evitar vibraciones, la unidad debe estar bien nivelada. 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.
Nota: Espere entre 3 a 5 minutos antes de volver a encender si el funcionamiento ha sido
interrumpido.
Se recomienda que Ud coloque su vinera en un lugar donde la temperatura ambiental se mantenga
entre 23-25 grados centígrados.
Si la temperatura ambiental oscila afuera de esos límites, pueda afectar la temperatura de la caja.
Por ejemplo, si su unidad está situada en lugares donde hay temperaturas muy frías o calientes
también puede afectar la temperatura de la caja.

CARACTERISTICAS ESPECIALES
La unidad está equipada con un aditivo que le permite funcionar en Modo
de Bajo Consumo de Energía (ECON: ECONOMY MODE). Este
funcionamiento ECON le permite reducir el consumo de energía al apagar
todas las luces indicadoras y la pantalla electrónica LED.
Para activar el funcionamiento ECON, presione el botón ECON hasta que la
luz indicadora de color verde se ilumine.
Para desactivar el funcionamiento ECON, simplemente presione el botón
ECON otra vez.
Una característica que hemos integrado a esta unidad es una alarma que
indica cuando se va la electricidad o apagón. En caso de apagón, el
indicador PWR LOSS va a parpadear y una alarma sonará
continuamente. Para apagar la alarma simplemente presione el botón
RESET que se encuentra debajo.
Si la puerta está entreabierta o abierta por más de 5 minutos, entonces el
indicador DOOR (Puerta) se va a activar. El indicador DOOR va a
parpadear y una alarma intermitente sonará cada 60 segundos. Para
apagar la alarma simplemente cierre la puerta correctamente o presione el
botón RESET que se encuentra debajo.
Otra característica que hemos integrado en esta unidad es el indicador para
cambiar el filtro (FILTER). Cuando la unidad haya estado en uso por 12
meses, la luz indicadora FILTER va a parpadear, recordándole que es
tiempo de cambiar el filtro. Después de cambiar el filtro presione el botón
RESET (que se muestra abajo) para que el contador de tiempo se vuelva a
activar en los próximos 12 meses.
El botón RESET se usa para reactivar cualquiera de los indicadores
mostrados arriba (PWR LOSS, DOOR, FILTER). Al apretar el botón
RESET, cualquiera de los indicadores que estén encendido, se volverán a
reactivar.
Luz interior
La luz interior se controla manualmente y no funciona al abrir ni cerrar la puerta. Para prender o
apagar la luz, presione el boton marcado (
) de la luz ubicado en el panel de control.
Cerradura de la puerta
Su unidad viene equipada con una combinación de cerradura y llave.
Las llaves (2) están dentro de la bolsa plástica junto al manual de instrucciones.
Introduzca la llave en la cerradura y gírela hacia la izquierda para abrir la puerta.
Para cerrarla, gire la llave hacia la derecha.
Quite la llave y colóquela en un lugar seguro para evitar que se pierda.
Descongelación
Su vinera ha sido diseñada con un sistema de descongelación de “ciclo automático”.
Las superficies refrigeradas del compartimiento para vinos se descongelan automáticamente, durante
el ciclo “apagado” del control de enfriamiento (termostato). El agua descongelada del compartimiento
es eliminada automáticamente, encauzándola hacia una bandeja de goteo ubicada en el area del
compresor. La transferencia de calor del compresor evapora el agua.
ADVERTENCIA
Asegúrese de tener la puerta abierta completamente se Ud desea remover las repisas o moverlas
hacia adelante para extraer una botella.

NOTA:
Para remover las repisas corredizas, vacíe las repisas antes de sacarlas. Hálelas aproximadamente
la mitad hacia afuera hasta que el raíl se alinee con el poste plástico en ambos lados.
Levante cada repisa y sáquela suavemente de la unidad. Para reemplazar de nuevo la repisa, repita
los pasos anteriores en dirección opuesta.
