NOTE:
 If the appliance is unplugged, encounter power interruption, or turned off, you must wait 3 to 5
minutes before restarting the appliance. If attempted to restart before this time delay, the appliance
will not start.
 When the appliance is used for the first time or restarted after having been shut off for a long time,
there could be a few degrees variance between the temperature you select and the one indicated on
the display. This is normal and it is due to the length of the inactivation time.
SETTING THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL

During normal operation, the temperature display on the control panel shows the temperature inside
the appliance.

The unit has two separate temperature zones. The temperature range of the UPPER zone is between
41ºF and 50ºF (5ºC and 10ºC) and the LOWER ZONE is between 50ºF and 72ºF (10ºC and 22ºC)

When the unit is plugged in for the first time, the unit will power up automatically to the preset defaults.
The preset temperature for the UPPER temperature zone is 43ºF (6ºC) and for LOWER temperature
zone is 54ºF (12ºC).

You can press the left side UP and DOWN keys to control the internal temperature of the UPPER
temperature zone and press the right side UP and DOWN keys to control the internal temperature of
the LOWER temperature zone.

The temperature that you desire to set will increase 1ºC or 1ºF if you press the UP key once and will
decrease 1ºC or 1ºF if you press the DOWN key once. The display flashes while you make the setting.

After the temperature has been set, the display will flash four times before it shows the current internal
temperature of the particular temperature zone.

To view the set temperature at any time, press the UP or DOWN key, the set temperature will
temporarily flash in the display for 5 seconds. Then the display shows the current internal temperature
again.
TEMPERATURE MEMORY FUNCTION
In the event of a power interruption (power surge, breaker switch, etc.), the unit can remember the previous
temperature settings. When the power has restored, the temperature display will show the current cabinet
temperature.
DOOR ALARM
If the door has been left open for more than 60 seconds, the alarm will sound. The alarm will stop by closing
the door.
TEMPERATURE ALARM
An alarm will sound if the temperature in one of the zones rises or falls outside the temperature range for more
than an hour. The zone’s relevant temperature display will flash at the same time.
INTERIOR LIGHT
The interior light makes it easy to view your wine labels and enhances the display of your collection. Pressing
the LIGHT key toggles between 2 modes of operation for the internal lights: Functional (default) mode and
Showcase mode. If you are in functional (default) mode, the lights will turn on only when the door is open. If
you are in Showcase mode, the lights will be on whether or not the door is open.
DYNAMIC CLIMATE / SILENT MODE
In the Dynamic Cooling mode, the interior fan cycles on and off to circulate the inside air evenly even the set
temperature is reached. This will create a continuous climate inside the cabinet so you can store all your wine
Page 11
under exactly the same excellent conditions. In the Silent mode, the interior fan stops working when the set
temperature is reached.
Dynamic Climate mode is the default preset mode which creates low noise. To change to Silent mode, press
and hold the UP key for approximately five seconds. The wine refrigerator will beep three times to confirm
silent mode is on. To change back to Dynamic Climate mode, press and hold the DOWN key for approximately
five seconds. The wine refrigerator will beep five times to confirm Dynamic Climate mode is on.
SABBATH MODE
Sabbath mode is available for the observance of certain religious holidays. This mode turns off the displays,
interior light and audible alarms and prevents them from turning on again. Normal cooling operations will still
take place. To initiate Sabbath mode, press and hold the POWER and LIGHT keys at the same time for at
least 5 seconds. The indicator light will flash four times and confirm the Sabbath mode is ON. Sabbath mode
can be exited by repeating the above process. The Sabbath Mode will automatically exit after 96 hours.
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.
