procedures require power to be connected. Discharge capacitor through a resistor before attempting to service.
Ensure all ground wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
Compressor
When compressor electrical circuit is
energized, the start winding current
causes relay to heat. After an amount of
starting time, the start winding circuit
turns off. The relay will switch off the
start winding circuit even though
compressor has not started (for
example, when attempting to restart
after momentary power interruption).
Resistance test
1. Disconnect power to unit.
2. Discharge capacitor by shorting across terminals with a resistor for 1
minute.
NOTE: (Some compressors do not have a run capacitor.)
3. Remove leads from compressor terminals.
4. Set ohmmeter to lowest scale.
5. Check for resistance between

10. With power to multimeter, press start cord switch and release.
• If compressor motor starts and draws normal wattage, compressor is
okay and trouble is in capacitor, relay/overload, freezer temperature
control, or elsewhere in system.
• If compressor does not start when direct wired, recover refrigerant at
high side. After refrigerant is recovered, repeat compressor direct wire
test. If compressor runs after recovery but would not run when direct
wired before recover, a restriction in sealed system is indicated.

WARNING
• When using your appliance, always follow basic
precautions.
• Use the wine chiller only for its intended purpose.
NOTE: This product is not intended for food storage.
• To prevent possibility of hazard due to electrical
shock, never plug the wine chiller into a receptacle
which has not been grounded adequately and in
accordance with the local and national electrical
codes. See
warning and the grounding
instructions that follow.
• Disconnect the power cord to the wine chiller before

• In case of power failure, minimize door openings.
• Any electrical service cord that becomes frayed or
damaged should be immediately repaired or
replaced. Never unplug your appliance by pulling on
the power cord.
WARNING
• This appliance is designed to operate on a normal
115 volt, 15 amp, 60 cycle line. There should be a
separate, grounded circuit serving this appliance
only. Do not use an extension cord. Do not use
any device that will alter the electrical
performance of this appliance.
This appliance is equipped with a three-pronged
grounding plug for your protection against possible
electrical shock hazards. It must be plugged into a
grounding receptacle. Where a standard two-prong
wall receptacle is encountered, it is the personal

Wine Racks
The wine chiller features slide out racks at the mid and
lower level. The upper two racks are fixed.
To be able to pull the wine racks out from the wine
chiller, the door from a closed position must be opened
a minimum of 150°.
Verify before completing installation of your wine
cooler at it’s proposed location will allow the door to
open sufficiently so that the wine racks can be pulled
out, if desired. As a possible solution, reversing the
door swing may provide enough door swing to pull out
the wine racks.
You may also alleviate the door swing situation, by
keeping the wine chiller’s door pulled out further than
the cabinet fronts.
150°

CAUTION
• Do not attempt to remove a rack while it has wine
bottles stored. Always empty the rack prior to
removing it from the cabinet.
Operation
Loading Tips and Suggestions:
1. Setting the Control:
The available settings of 1 through 7 provide a
temperature range in the wine chiller from the low
forties to the mid sixties.

Use a coin to initially turn
the control clockwise to
the middle thermostat
setting (4). Allow at least
48 hours for the wine
chiller to stabilize before
making any adjustments to
the initial setting.
The mid setting on the control (4) provides
approximately 55° F (13° C) which is the
appropriate temperature for long term storage of
all types of wine.
The coldest setting (7) provides a storage
temperature of approximately 45° F (7° C) which is
the serving temperature for white wine.
The temperature can be adjusted by turning the
control clockwise for a colder temperature or
counterclockwise for a warmer temperature.
2. Insert Wine Bottles: The top two racks each hold
six bottles, with the necks alternating front (rear
bottles) to back (front bottles). The middle four
racks each hold eight bottles, with necks
alternating front (rear bottles) to back (front
bottles). The bottom rack holds six bottles and are
loaded with necks facing the rear. Tall bottles
should not be loaded on the bottom rack because
they may prevent the door from closing.
Front bottles
(necks facing
rear)
1. As with most refrigeration products, there is a
slight temperature variance at different locations
within the wine chiller.
The coolest areas will be at the rear of the four
middle racks. The front locations on these racks
are generally a few degrees warmer than the rear
locations.
The overall warmest storage location in the wine
chiller will be the upper two racks. This location in
the wine chiller is approximately 3° to 7° F (-1.5° to
-4° C) warmer.
2. Position white wines on the middle or lower racks
and red wines on the upper racks.
3. Turn off the light when it is not needed, as bottles
directly under the light will be exposed to a slightly
higher temperature when the light is on.
4. Place wines that are being stored for aging or long
term at the rear of the racks.
5. Place wines that will be used sooner on the front
half of the racks where labels are more readily
visible.
6. Magnums and other large bottles can be stored on
the upper right and left positions of the wine chiller
or on any of the middle racks, by removing the
rack directly above them.

Features
• Adjustable Temperature Control: The temperature
control is adjustable from the low forties to the mid
sixties. The temperature range allows flexibility for
storage temperature preferences and accommodates
storage of a variety of red, white and sparkling wines.
• Interior Light: The light control knob is located on
the lower right front of the wine chiller, in the toe
kick area.
The light automatically illuminates to full intensity any
time the door is opened, to make it easier to view the
wine labels.
To view the display of your wine collection, while the
door is closed, turn the light control knob (see page
12).
NOTE: When the knob is turned fully counterclockwise, the light is off when the door is closed.
In the full clockwise position, the light remains on
continuously. The knob can be set at any position in
between to achieve the desired level of light intensity.
The dimming feature only affects the light when the
door is closed. The light is always at full intensity
when the door is open.
Remember to turn off the light when it is no longer
needed.
• Single Bottle Racks: Because bottles are not
stacked on top of each other, you can easily view
and access your inventory without disturbing other
bottles.
• Lock: To secure your wine collection, the wine
chiller can be locked. Use the ejectable key that has
been shipped with your appliance to securely lock
the door.
NOTE: Lock is designed so key cannot stay inserted
into the lock.
• Wood Rack Fronts: There are four unfinished solid
maple rack fronts packed with your wine chiller.
These can be finished to match the surrounding
cabinetry in your home. Follow the finishing
instructions provided by the stain manufacturer.
NOTE: In many cases stains and/or finishes have
odors that may be objectionable in an enclosed area.
To Install: Place one rack front on each of the
middle four racks. Align the holes in the wood up to
rack front and gently tighten down.
• Pull-out Racks: The middle four racks may be
pulled out approximately 6" (15 cm) to facilitate
adding or removing bottles
CAUTION
• Do not attempt to remove a rack while it has wine
bottles stored. Always empty the rack prior to
removing it from the cabinet.

Care and Cleaning
Cleaning
Light Bulb Replacement
WARNING
• To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe
personal injury or death, disconnect power to the
wine chiller before cleaning.
• Condenser: The condenser tubing inside the wine
chiller does not require frequent cleaning; however,
satisfactory cooling depends on adequate ventilation
over the coils. Be sure that nothing obstructs the
required air flow openings in front of the wine chiller.
At least twice a year brush or vacuum lint and dirt
from the condenser for efficient performance by
unscrewing the grille on the bottom front of the wine
chiller.
• Wine Chiller: The painted cabinet can be washed
with mild detergent and water and thoroughly rinsed
with clear water. Never use abrasive scouring
powders.
• Stainless Steel Door Frame: Use a soft cloth or
sponge and wipe with the grain of the stainless steel.
Use mild detergent and water for light soil, Bon Ami*
for more moderate soil and Cameo Stainless Steel
Cleaner* for discoloration. Do not use chlorine
bleach or products containing chlorine bleach on
stainless steel.
After cleaning, rinse and dry. To restore luster and
remove streaks, follow with Stainless Steel Magic
Spray* (Jenn-Air model A912, part number
20000008).
WARNING
• To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe
personal injury or death, disconnect power to the
wine chiller before replacing light bulb. After
replacing light bulb, connect power.
CAUTION
To avoid personal injury or property damage,
observe the following:
• Allow light bulb to cool.
• Wear gloves when replacing light bulb.
The wine chiller uses a 15 watt, intermediate base bulb
and is located inside the light shield. The light shield is
on the ceiling of the wine chiller and is held in place by
three screws. Remove the three screws and light
shield to remove the light bulb. Do not use a
replacement light bulb greater than 15 watts.
In the Event of a Power Failure
If the power fails, open the door as infrequently as
possible to maintain the temperature. A gradual rise in
temperature should not have any adverse effect on the
wine.
If it is extremely hot, you may want to move the wine to
the coolest location you can find until power is
restored.
• Interior: Wash interior compartment with mild
detergent and water. Do not use an abrasive
powder, solvent, polish cleaner or undiluted
detergent.
• Glass Door: Use a glass cleaner or mild detergent
and water and soft cloth to clean the glass door. Do
not use abrasive powders.
• Door Gasket: The vinyl gasket may be cleaned
with mild detergent and water, or a solution of
2 tablespoons baking soda to 1 quart warm water.

Care and Cleaning
Cleaning
Light Bulb Replacement
WARNING
• To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe
personal injury or death, disconnect power to the
refrigerator before cleaning.
• Condenser: The condenser tubing inside the
refrigerator does not require frequent cleaning;
however, satisfactory cooling depends on adequate
ventilation over the coils. Be sure that nothing
obstructs the required air flow openings in front of
the refrigerator. At least twice a year, brush or
vacuum lint and dirt from the condenser for efficient
performance by unscrewing the grille on the bottom
front of the refrigerator.
• Cabinet: The painted cabinet can be washed with
mild detergent and water, and thoroughly rinsed with
clear water. Never use abrasive scouring powders.
• Stainless Steel Door: Use a soft cloth or sponge
and wipe with the grain of the stainless steel. Use
mild detergent and water for light soil, Bon Ami* for
more moderate soil and Cameo Stainless Steel
Cleaner* for discoloration. Do not use chlorine
bleach or products containing chlorine bleach on
stainless steel.
After cleaning, rinse and dry. To restore luster and
remove streaks, follow with Stainless Steel Magic
Spray* (Jenn-Air model A912, part number
20000008).
• Interior: Wash interior compartment with mild
detergent and water. Do not use an abrasive
powder, solvent, polish cleaner or undiluted
detergent.
WARNING
• To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe
personal injury or death, disconnect power to the
refrigerator before replacing light bulb. After
replacing light bulb, connect power.
CAUTION
To avoid personal injury or property damage,
observe the following:
• Allow light bulb to cool.
• Wear gloves when replacing light bulb.
The refrigerator uses a 15-watt appliance light bulb. To
replace the light bulb, proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the power cord from the wall receptacle.
2. Open the cabinet door.
3. Remove lower shelf.
4. Remove the 3 screws on the front face of the light
lens.
5. Remove the lens.
6. Unscrew the existing bulb and replace with an
equivalent 15-watt, threaded, intermediate base
appliance bulb. Do not replace with a bulb higher
than 15 watts.
7. Reassemble.
8. Reconnect power.
• Door Gasket: The vinyl gasket may be cleaned with
mild detergent and water or a solution of
2 tablespoons baking soda to 1 quart of warm water.
