INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Wine Cellar:
• Remove any exterior and interior packing material.
• Check to be sure the following parts are included:
♦
2 slide out shelves: 1 full size, 1 half size
♦
1 instruction manual
• Before connecting the appliance to the power source, let it stand
upright for approximately 24 hours. This will reduce the
possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling
during transportation.
• Place your appliance on a surface that is strong enough to
support the appliance when it is fully loaded.
• To level your appliance, adjust the front legs.
• Ensure that the unit is installed with clearance of 1” on the sides
and 4” in the back for proper air circulation.
• Designed for freestanding installation only, away from direct
sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct
sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may
increase electrical consumption.
• Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
• For maximum storage, place wine bottles both on their side and
standing within the cooler. Remove metal half shelf and place
bottles on their side on both the contoured metal shelf and the
molded shelf. Stand bottles upright in bottom storage area.
OPERATING YOUR WINE CELLAR
It is recommended that you install the wine cellar in a place where
the ambient temperature is between 50-80°F. If the ambient
temperature is above or below recommended temperature, the
performance of the unit may be affected. Placing in extreme cold or
hot conditions may cause interior temperature to fluctuate. The
range of 39-65°F may not be reached. Not intended for garage or
basement installs. The temperature may fluctuate depending on
whether or not the interior light is on or off or whether the bottles are
located on the upper/middle or lower section. Close the cellar door
immediately after putting in any items so the inside temperature will
not rise dramatically.
