Before first use
You must allow the appliance to settle for at least twenty four hours prior to switching the power on.
It is recommended that you remove all internal and external packaging and clean the interior of the appliance prior to first use,
using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and warm water and then thoroughly dry the interior.
The appliance may have an odour to it at first use. This will disappear as the appliance cools.
Please note:
• The appliance will work continuously until it gets to the correct temperature.
• If the appliance is switched off, you should allow five minutes before switching it on again to prevent the risk of unnecessary damage to the compressor.
• The LED display may not show the selected temperature whilst the appliance first gets to the correct temperature. This is normal, and the display will be corrected automatically once the appliance has run for a few hours.
Use
• Only store wine in sealed containers
• Do not overload the cabinet
• Only open the door when necessary
• Do not cover the shelves with aluminium foil or anything else that will prevent air from circulating around the cabinet.
• To prevent damage to the door seal, ensure the door is fully open before removing the shelves.
• This is a self-defrosting appliance. The compressor will not run during the thirty minute defrost cycle.
• Do not pull the shelves beyond the anti-stop position (approximately one third out) when fully loaded.
• This appliance is intended to be used exclusively for the storage of wine.
• In the event of a power failure, leave the door closed as much as possible to maintain the internal working temperature. Should the power failure continue for a prolonged period, you should take steps to protect the contents of the wine cooler against a rise in temperature.
This appliance is suitable for use in an extended temperature climate (N for FWC151, N/ST for FWC301/FWC601/
FWC621) and has a normal operating ambient temperature of 16-38C. Use of the appliance below 10C may cause
performance issues that are not indicative of a fault. Normal operation will resume once the appliance is within the
specified range.
FWC151, FWC301 & FWC621 will not be able to reach the required temperature if the ambient temperature is lower than
that required.

Use
Humidity Control (all models except FWC151)
The wine coolers are equipped with a humidity control
system to maintain optimal humidity within the wine cooler.
Fill the humidity reservoir approximately 3/4 full with water.
Place the reservoir on the runners on the top shelf as shown
in fig. 5. Ensure it is located correctly to prevent water
spillage.
Check the water level regularly and refill if required.
fig. 5
Temperature display
The temperature display will show the current internal temperature.
The display flashes:
• When a different temperature is being set
• If the internal temperature is +/- 5˚ away from the set temperature. This serves as a warning to prevent damage to the contents of the appliance should the temperature be too high.
Dynamic Cooling and Silent modes
The appliance has two different running modes.
• Silent mode
Once the required temperature is reached, the appliance will run without the fan.
• Dynamic cooling mode
The fan cycles on and off to circulate the air even after the required temperature is reached. This ensures consistent humidity
and temperature distribution in the wine cooler, creating perfect conditions for long term storage. Dynamic cooling is the
factory preset mode.
To change to silent mode, touch and hold the up key for approximately five seconds. The wine cooler will beep three times to
confirm silent mode is on.
To change to dynamic cooling mode, touch and hold the down key for approximately five seconds. The wine cooler will beep
five times to confirm dynamic cooling is on.

Care and Cleaning
Always disconnect the appliance from the mains electrical supply before any cleaning or maintenance.
• Do not use abrasive products or detergents. After washing, rinse and dry thoroughly.
• The exterior of the appliance and the door seal should be cleaned using mild soapy water and dried thoroughly.
• The interior cabinet should be cleaned using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water.
• Clean the shelves separately by hand using soap and water. Do not put them in the dishwasher.
• Ensure that the cloth is only moist when cleaning the control panel and electrical parts, and that all water is thoroughly dried off before reconnecting the power.
• Once cleaning is complete, reconnect the mains electrical supply.
• If the appliance is not to be used for prolonged periods of time, unplug and clean the appliance thoroughly. The door should be left slightly ajar to prevent the formation of odours or condensation.
