Wine Placement
Storage tips
The amount of time to store wine
depends on its maturity, type of grape,
alcohol content, and dissolved fructose and tannins. When purchasing
your wine, find out whether it is mature
or if it will improve over time.
In the lower part of the cooler. Cold air
prolongs the time to maturity. Accordingly, store old and mature wine as well
as wine you would like to store for a
long time in the lower portion of the
cooler. The lower part should also be
used to store wine that is to be served
In the upper part of the cooler. In the
upper part, store wine that you wish to
let further mature, wines that are
served at a warmer temperature, and
those wines you intend to consume
relatively soon.
Store the bottles lying down so that
the corks do not dry out.
Store the wine in the dark. The cooler
doors are made with double-paned
glass with a dark coating. This will
protect the wine against light damage
if the cooler is placed in a well-lit area.
Avoid turning on the light in the cooler
too often or for too long. The wine
should be stored in the dark.
Handle the bottles with care, so that
the wine is not agitated.
Heed any advice and recommendations given at the time of purchase or
in the professional literature concerning the wine's quality, durability and
optimal storage temperature.
Recommended storage temperatures:
- for white wines +10 to +12°C
- for rosé wines and light red wines
+12 to +16°C
- for champagne and sparkling wines
+6 to +8°C
If you stack several bottles on top of
one another, make sure they do not
touch the cabinet's cooling plate.
Measuring the temperature
If the temperature is measured using a
standard, single thermometer, this
should be put in a glass of water
centrally placed inside the cabinet.
This will reflect the temperature inside
the food products. Do not place the
thermometer hanging or lying directly
on the shelf.
Switching off
Switch off the cabinet by pressing the
power switch.
Keep the button pressed for approx. 1
Power to the cabinet is completely
interrupted only when the power plug
is disconnected.
Alarms and other features
Door open alarm
If the fridge door remains open for
more than 5 minutes, the red warning
lamp starts flashing and an audible
alarm sounds.
To switch off the alarm:
Press the "alarm shut-off button". The
red warning lamp goes out when the
door is closed.
The cooler lighting may be turned on
with the door closed. This makes it
easy to survey the contents of the
cooler without opening the door. The
cooler lighting should normally be off,
so that the wine is not unduly exposed
to light. The lighting turns off automatically after about 5 minutes.
Cabinet interior
The drawer has two moveable
The shelves may be placed flat or at
an angle.
Angle the shelf by placing the front
pegs in a lower set of tracks. You can
store already opened bottles on the
shelf in this position.
Saving energy
· Pay careful attention to where the
cabinet is placed. See the section
"Installation". When installed correctly,
the cabinet will consume less energy.
· Try to avoid keeping the door open
for long periods, or opening the door
too frequently as warm air will enter the
cabinet, and cause the compressor to
switch on unnecessarily often.
· Ensure there are no obstructions
preventing the door from closing
· It is advisable to periodically clean
the refrigeration system at the back of
the appliance with a duster or vacuum
· Make sure the door gasket is
complete and always clean.
Food Storage
· To obtain the best results from your
appliance, neither hot foods nor liquids
which may evaporate, should be
placed in the larder compartment.
· Avoid buying frozen food if you can
not store it straight away. The use of
an insulated container is advisable.
When you arrive home place the
frozen food in the freezer immediately.
· Ensure that food placed in the
freezer is dated and labelled and used
in date order to ensure that food is
consumed at its best. Remove suspect
food from you refrigerator and clean,
refer to cleaning and maintenance.
Protect the environment
· Hand over the cabinet packaging
and discarded fridges and freezers to a
recycling station. Contact your local
city office or your closest dealer for
more information.
· When cleaning the cabinet, use a
mild washing-up detergent.
· Follow the advice in the section
"Saving energy"
· The door gasket and coolant used in
this cabinet will not harm the ozone
· All parts in the packaging can be
· The cabinet has been designed for
easy dismantling and subsequent

grille (see the section "Removing the
ventilation grille") and vacuum-clean
under the cabinet. Once or twice a
year dust the condenser (black grille)
and the compressor at the back of the
appliance, with a brush or vacuum
cleaner, as an accumulation of dust
will affect the performance of the
appliance and cause excessive
electricity consumption.
Defrosting the wine cooler

automatically every time the
compressor stops. Frost formation can
be prevented by:
· not putting warm foodstuff inside
the cabinet.
