is environmentally friendly. Although it
is flammable, it does not damage the
ozone layer and does not increase the
greenhouse effect.
The use of this coolant has, however,
led to a slight increase in the noise level
of the appliance. In addition to the
noise of the compressor, you might be
able to hear the coolant flowing around
the system. This is unavoidable, and
does not have any adverse effect on
the performance of the appliance.

Temperature and air quality
Wine keeps on maturing depending on
the surrounding conditions. The length
of time for which wine can be kept in
good condition will therefore depend
not only on the temperature but also on
the air quality.
The wine storage unit with its constant
ideal temperature, increased air
humidity and odor-free atmosphere
offers the perfect conditions for storing
your wine.
It also guarantees a vibration-free
environment so that the maturing
process is not disturbed.
Temperature
Wine can be stored at a temperature
between 43°F and 64°F (6°C and
18°C). If you are storing white and red
wines together, select a temperature
between 54°F and 57°F (12°C and
14°C). This is suitable for both red and
white wines.
At too high a temperature (over 72°F
(22°C)), wine matures too quickly,
which prevents the aromas from
developing further. Wine cannot mature
fully at too low a temperature (below
41°F (5°C)).
Fluctuations in temperature put wine
under stress and interrupt the maturing
process. It is therefore very important to
maintain a constant temperature.

it warms up a little when poured into the
glass.
A full-bodied red should be opened for
2-3 hours before drinking to allow it to
breathe and develop its aroma.
Temperature and air quality
Safety device in case of low ambient
temperatures
The appliance is equipped with a safety
thermostat to protect your wine against
a sharp drop in temperature. If the
external temperature should drop
below this level, a heater element turns
on automatically to keep the
temperature inside as constant as
possible. If the ambient temperature
continues to fall, the appliance turns
itself off automatically.
Isolator panels for thermal
separation
The appliance has a fixed isolator plate
which divides the cabinet into two
different zones. This enables you to
store different types of wine at the same
time, e. g., red wine and champagne.
The isolation strips on the inside of the
glass door prevent an exchange of heat
between the individual zones.
Setting the temperature
The temperature can be set in both
zones independently of each other.
^ Tap the sensor button for the zone for
which you wish to change the
temperature so that it is highlighted in
yellow.
The current temperature for the
selected zone appears in the display.
^ Set the temperature using the two
buttons underneath the display.
By touching the button:
– the temperature will get colder,
– the temperature will get warmer.
^ Tap the OK button to confirm your
selection.
or
^ Wait approximately 5 seconds after
the last press of the button.
21
Temperature and air quality
The temperature being set will flash in
the display.
Possible setting values for the
temperature
The following information shows in the
display when the buttons are tapped:
In both zones, it is possible to set
temperatures between 41°F and 68°F
(5°C and 20°C).
– When first touched:
The last temperature selected
flashes.
– Each subsequent touch of the
button:
The temperature value adjusts in 1°
steps.
– Keeping your finger on the button:
The temperature changes
continuously.
Approximately 5 seconds after the last
time a sensor button has been touched,
the current temperature inside the
appliance is automatically shown.
When the temperature is altered, there
is a short delay until the temperature
selected is set.
The temperature display on the
control panel always shows the
actual temperature.
22
Temperature display
In normal operation, the temperature
display shows the actual temperature in
the zone.
If the temperature in one of the zones is
not within the range that the appliance
is able to display, dashes will light up in
the temperature display.
Depending on the ambient temperature
and the temperature setting, it can take
the appliance a few hours to reach the
temperature required and for this
temperature to then be shown as a
constant temperature in the display.
Temperature and air quality
Air quality and humidity
DynaCool (constant humidity) m
A conventional refrigerator with its low
humidity level is not the best place to
store wine. It is very important to store
wine in an atmosphere with a high
humidity level so that the corks remain
moist on the outside. Low humidity
causes corks to dry out from the
outside, and so do not seal the bottles
as tightly. Wine should be stored lying
down to keep the corks moist from the
inside too. Air entering the bottle will
inevitably spoil the wine.
DynaCool raises the relative humidity
inside the appliance.
It also distributes the humidity and the
temperature evenly around the interior
so that you can store all your wine
under the same excellent conditions.
This will create a stable climate in the
cabinet which imitates that of a wine
cellar.
Do not introduce additional moisture
into the air, e.g., by placing a bowl
of water in the appliance,
as this will lead to condensation on
the interior walls, which can cause
corrosion damage.
Turning on DynaCool
If you would like to use the wine storage
unit to store wine long term, we
recommend that you keep the
DynaCool function turned on.
^ Tap the button for constant humidity
until it lights up yellow.
Even if DynaCool has not been
turned on, the fans in the appliance
will come on automatically when the
cooling system turns on
to ensure your wine is kept in the
optimum climate.
The fans automatically turn off when
the door is open.
23
Temperature and air quality
Turning off DynaCool
The appliance uses slightly more
energy and is a little noisier when the
DynaCool function is turned on. You
can turn it off occasionally if desired.
^ Tap the button for constant humidity
until it no longer lights up yellow.
Air filtering with the active charcoal
filter
The active charcoal filter achieves
optimum air quality by filtering the
incoming air.
Fresh air from the outside enters the
appliance via the active charcoal filter.
The DynaCool system then distributes
the air evenly throughout the cabinet
via the fans.
Filtering the incoming air through the
active charcoal filter ensures that all the
air entering the appliance is fresh and
free from dust and smells.
This in turn ensures your wine does not
absorb any unwanted odors.
Replace the active charcoal filter when
the — indicator appears in the display
(see "Active charcoal filter").
24
Temperature and door alarm
The appliance is equipped with an
alarm system so that the temperature in
both temperature zones cannot rise or
fall unnoticed, thus possibly damaging
the wine.
Turning off the acoustic alarm

Storing wine bottles
Vibration and movement have a
negative effect on the maturing process
which can affect the taste of the wine.
Wooden shelves
To avoid disturbing other bottles when
removing a bottle of wine, store bottles
of the same type beside each other on
the same shelf. Avoid stacking bottles
on top of one another on the wooden
shelves.
Always place the bottles in a horizontal
