Before Using Your Wine Cellar:
• Remove any exterior and interior packing material.
• Check to be sure the following parts are included:
o For 16 Bottle Wine Cellar, 3 slide out shelves.
o 1 instruction manual.
• Before connecting the appliance to the power source, let it stand upright for
approximately 2 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 at the bottom of the appliance.
• When positioning the cooler, leave a minimum of 6 inches at the back of the cooler,
10-12 inches on each side of the cooler. This will ensure proper air circulation.
• The unit is designed for freestanding installation only. It is not designed to be installed
under a counter, inside a cabinet, or in any location that does not allow the proper
clearances on all sides, as stated above.
• Locate the cooler 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. Several inches clearance is required at rear for proper
air circulation.
• Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
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
54-66°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.
How to use the buttons on the Display Panel:
You can set the temperature by pushing the control buttons.
There are two buttons on the panel “ + ” and “ - ” to adjust the temperature by 1°F
increments from 54-66°F. You can turn the interior light on or off by pressing the light

Cleaning Your Wine Cellar
• Unplug the wine cellar and remove the bottles.
• Wash the inside with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should be
about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
• The outside of the wine cellar should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
• Unscrew the water box at the bottom, and wash it.
• Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Moving Your Wine Cellar
• Remove all the bottles.
• Securely tape down all loose items inside your wine cellar.
• Turn the leveling legs up to the base to avoid damage.
• Tape the door shut.
• Be sure the wine cellar stays in the upright position during transportation.

You can solve many common wine cellar problems easily, saving you the
cost of a possible service call. Try the suggestions below to see if you can
solve the problem before contacting Vinotemp at [email protected]
Door will not close
Unit does not
operate—does not
have power
Power is ON but
the unit will not
Fan is always
Check to make sure the wine cellar is level.
Frost appears in
cabinet (on back).
Inside light
Either too much humidity or too low of temperature inside
cabinet. Unplug cooler and allow to manually defrost.
Reconnect when ice has melted. If problem persists,
contact the manufacturer for service instructions.
In some instances, this is normal. The light may flash
when the automatic defrost function starts to work.
Set temperature is higher than inner temperature. Adjust
temperature to resolve.
The wine cellar is not level.
The shelves are out of position.
The door was reversed and not properly installed.
The door gasket is dirty.
A bottle in the cellar is too long.
Check that unit is plugged into the wall socket.
Make sure the wall socket has power. If outlet is controlled
by a wall switch, make sure switch is set to on. Test wall
socket functionality by testing another electrical appliance
in the power socket.
Make sure there are at least 3 to 5 bottles in the unit.
When using the unit for the first time, it can take up to 24
hours to reach the desired temperature.
If the room temperature is at the high end of the ambient
temperature range, it may have more difficulty achieving
a low internal temperature.
To achieve accurate temperature control, the unit should
not be used or operated in any of the following locations:
o In a sunny place, a room with poor air circulation such
as a garage or near another heat-producing appliance
such as a dishwasher, oven or refrigerator.
o With an outlet shared with a refrigerator, as the
refrigerator will drain power from the wine cellar.
Make sure the cooler has proper clearances at side and
rear and is located in a well-ventilated area.
Door is not closed tightly or is being opened too
This is simply a function of the cooling system. The lower
the setting, the more the fan will run. If the room is very
warm, the cooler will run more.
The unit has been designed to run continuously when
operating at the lower temperatures.
