Operation and Controls
It is recommended you install the appliance in a place where the ambient temperature is between 72º- 78ºF /
23º-26ºC. If the ambient temperature is above or below recommended temperatures, the performance of the wine
refrigerator may be affected. For example, placing your appliance in extreme cold or hot conditions may cause
interior temperatures to fluctuate.
NOTE:
When using the wine refrigerator for the first time or restarting after being shut off for a long period of time, there may
be a few degrees variance between the set temperature and the LED readout. This is normal due the length of
activation time. The unit should return to normal after running for a few hours. The internal temperature of this unit
will not rise if the ambient temperature where the unit is located is lower than the set temperature.

11
Operation and Controls
NORMAL SOUNDS
The unit is cooled by a compressor. The compressor pumps coolant through the cooling system, producing
operating noise. Even when the compressor cuts out, noises caused by changes in temperature and pressure
are unavoidable. Operating noise will be most audible immediately after the compressor comes on. It
becomes quieter as the operating period continues.
The following noises are normal and occur from time to time:

Gurgling sound, caused by the refrigerant flowing through the appliance’s coils,

Humming noise made by the compressor. This noise can get louder for brief periods when the motor is
switching on.

Cracking/popping sounds, resulting from the materials contraction and expansion due to temperature variations,

Fan operating sound, to circulate the air within the wine cabinet.

Unusual noise is normally the result of improper installation.

Where the unit is installed in open-plan kitchen or in partition walls, the level of operating noise will be
heard more acutely. However, this is due to the surrounding architecture and not to the unit.
NOTE: An individual’s perception of noise is directly linked to the environment in which the unit is located, as well the specific type of models. Our appliances are in line with international standards for such appliance and in line with the latest technical developments. Please remember that the noise of the compressor
and the coolant circulating in the system is unavoidable.
DEFROSTING AND VENTILATION
Your wine refrigerator is designed with an automatic defrost system. During off-cycle, the evaporator behind
the rear wall of the unit defrosts automatically. Condensation is collected in the drain at the back of the unit
and flows through the drainage hole into the drip tray above the compressor. The heat is transferred from
compressor and evaporates any condensation that has collected in the drip tray. Part of the remaining water
within the wine refrigerator is collected for humidity purposes.
NOTE: Frost may accumulate on the evaporator if the unit is repeatedly opened in a high heat or high
humidity location. If this frost pattern does not clear within 24 hours, your unit will require manual defrosting.
12
Storage
DOOR LOCK
The appliance is provided with a lock and key combination. The keys are located inside the plastic bag that holds
the User Manual. Insert the key into the lock and turn it counterclockwise to unlock the door. To lock the door do
the reverse operation making sure metal pin is engaged completely. Remove the key and place it in a secure
place.
STORAGE
Wine bottles may differ in size and dimensions so the actual number of bottles can be stored may vary. The 92
bottle capacity is approximate maximum when storing traditional Bordeaux 750 ML bottles and includes bulk
storage.
You may load your wine bottles in single row or by stacking while taking note of the following: if you do not have
enough bottles to fill your wine refrigerator, it is better to distribute the load throughout the wine refrigerator so as
to avoid “all on top” or “all below” type loads.

You can remove or relocate adjustable shelves to accommodate larger type of bottles (see removing shelves)

Keep small gaps between the walls and the bottles to allow air circulation.

Do not over load your wine refrigerator

Avoid obstructing the internal fans (located inside on the back panel of the wine refrigerator).

Do not try to slide the shelves outwards beyond the fixed position to prevent the bottles from falling.

Do not pull out more than one loaded shelf at a time as this may cause the wine refrigerator to tilt forward if
not properly installed.
REMOVING SHELVES
 To remove any of the shelves from the rail compartment, move the shelf to the position where the notch of
shelf is exactly under the plastic post and then lift it up and out.
 In order to replace the shelf, repeat steps described above in reverse. And make sure to engage the shelves
with the small pegs of the extended rails when the model is equipped with roller system.
13
Storage
REMOVING SHELVES
• To remove any of the shelves from the rail compartment, move the shelf to the position where the notch
of shelf is exactly under the plastic post and then lift it up and out.
• In order to replace the shelf, repeat steps described above in reverse.
DISPLAY RACK
6 wine bottles can be arranged on the display rack for wine
