Removing a shelf o Remove all of the bottles from the shelf that you want to remove. o Lift the shelf upwards and then gently pull the shelf away from the wine cooler.

Replacing a shelf o Place the shelf back into a supporting guide slot and push it back until the shelf tabs slide into place. o IMPORTANT: You must not store any bottles on a shelf until the tabs are fully engaged.

Using your Baumatic wine cooler

Before switching on o Make sure that it has been installed by a suitably qualified person, as per the information contained in Baumatic’s installation instructions. o After delivery, wait for eight hours before connecting the appliance to your mains supply. This will allow any refrigerant gasses that may have been disturbed during the transportation process to settle.

10

o The outside of the appliance and the removable accessories contained within it, should be cleaned with a solution of liquid detergent and water. o The interior of the appliance should be cleaned with a solution of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in lukewarm water. The interior and accessories should be thoroughly dried, after the cleaning process has been completed. o There can be an odour when you first switch on the appliance. It will lessen as the appliance starts to cool.

During first use o When you first switch on the appliance, the compressor will run continuously until the wine cooler reaches a cool enough temperature. o During this period of time, you should try not to open the door frequently or place bottles inside of the appliance. o If the unit is switched off or unplugged, you must allow at least 5 minutes before restarting the appliance or reconnecting it to your mains supply.

Switching on the appliance and setting the temperature o When the appliance is connected to your mains supply, all of the display indicators will light for approximately 3 seconds, there will be a beeping sound as well.

o Use the upper zone temperature buttons (2) to set the temperature in the upper zone.

o Use the lower zone temperature buttons (9) to set the temperature in the lower zone.

11

o Each time you press either the or button, the temperature of a particular zone will adjust by one degree. If you press and hold down either the or button, the temperature will adjust by one degree every half a second.

o The button will increase the temperature of a zone. The button will decrease the temperature of a zone.

o Whilst you are setting the temperature of a zone, the corresponding temperature display will flash. When you stop pressing the temperature buttons, after 3 seconds the display will stop flashing and the temperature of the zone will be set.

o The display will then show the temperature that is currently being registered by the cooling zone.

o The upper fan neon (3) and lower fan neon (8) will light periodically to show that the fans inside of the wine cooler are operating.

Changing between Fahrenheit and Celsius o You can set the displays to show either Fahrenheit or Celsius. To switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius, you need to use the zone temperature buttons.

o Press the and buttons of the display that you want to change. If you hold down the buttons for approximately 3 seconds, the display will change from Fahrenheit to Celsius or vice versa.

o If you alter one display, then it will not change the other display, so you will need to follow the above procedure for the upper and the lower display.

o You cannot change the display if you are in the process of adjusting the temperature of a cooling zone (i.e. the displays are flashing).

Interior lights o To operate the interior lights, you should use the light on/off button (1). o You cannot operate the interior lights if you are in the process of adjusting the temperature of a cooling zone (i.e. the displays are flashing).

12

Locking and unlocking the control panel o If no button on the display panel is pressed for one minute, then all of the buttons will lock automatically, apart from the control panel lock on/off button (10). o The control panel lock neon (5) on the display will light. o If you press any button on the display, the control panel lock neon (5) will flash to remind you that the control panel is locked. o To unlock the control panel, press and hold down the control panel lock on/off button (10) for three seconds, until the control panel lock neon (5) goes out.

Stand-by mode o Once you have made any necessary adjustments to the temperature of each zone, then it is possible to put your wine cooler into stand-by mode. o Press both of the lower zone temperature buttons (9) simultaneously and hold them down for three seconds. The stand-by neon (6) will light.

Storing your wines

* Light red wines, such as Beaujolais, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc benefit from being served slightly cooler than full-bodied reds.

** Chardonnay is often served too cold. You should chill it at a warmer temperature inside of your wine cooler. Or leave it to warm slightly when you remove it from your wine cooler. o Temperature stability is the most important factor when it comes to storing wine.

13

o Exposure to light, vibrations or fluctuations in temperature and humidity can all cause wine to spoil. When properly stored, wines not only maintain their quality but many will actually improve in aroma, flavour and complexity as they mature. o Wines kept at a higher temperature will age faster. Wine that is exposed to temperatures that are greater than 21°C (70°F) will suffer from poorer flavour and aroma. o If wine is kept at too low a temperature, this can result in the development of harmful deposits. A humidity of 70% is ideal for keeping corks from shrinking. o After a bottle of wine has been opened, the wine comes into contact with air. So it is best to store the remainder of the bottle upright, to minimize the surface area of the wine that is coming into contact with the air. o Once opened, wine will remain in a drinkable condition for two days for delicate whites or three days for rich reds, as long as the bottle as been resealed. You should make sure that the seal is firm by checking the stopper. o Special stoppers that keep wine sparking and Champagne bubbling for one or two days after opening, can be bought at most good wine shops. o When stored correctly, white wines can keep well for up to two years. Full bodied reds will age well for ten years and dessert wines will age well for up to twenty years. o When you buy a bottle of wine, you should transfer it to a suitable storage location immediately (if you are not going to store it in your wine cooler). o Cheaper bottles of wine will not age as well as more expensive ones. o To make the most of the bouquet and taste of your wine, never fill more than half a glass at a time. It will also help if the shape of your wine glass is appropriate for your wine. The size and shape of your wine glass’s bowl will determine the intensity and complexity of the bouquet. The stem should be long enough to allow you to avoid hand contact with the bowl of the glass and should be tulip-shaped or tapered at the top.

Wine storage problems

Corking- a tiny percentage of bottled wine (about 1%) will suffer from this. The cork reacts with the wine and gives it a musty, unpleasant taste. It is the most common wine storage problem and is caused by harmless bacteria growing on the cork. As unfortunate as this is, there is nothing to do but to discard all of the wine in the affected bottle.

This is not to be confused with small fragments of cork floating in the wine itself, which will not impair the flavour.

Oxidisation- when wine has been opened and left for longer than a day, it tends to lose its aroma and colour, giving an overall flat taste.

The only way to avoid this, it to either drink the wine on the same day it was opened or to use a vacuum device specially designed for removing oxygen from opened wine bottles. If you use such a device, the wine should still be consumed shortly afterwards.

Ullage- this is loss of wine from the bottle by evaporation or leakage.

Signs of ullage include wine seeping around the cork, a protruding cork or a stained label. It can happen if the bottle has been allowed to get too warm. The wine may still be drinkable, if the leakage was recent; however, you should be aware that if the wine cools down again, contraction can cause more air to be sucked into the bottle and result in further deterioration.

Slight effervescence in still wine- this isn’t really a problem with the way the wine has been stored, but as a result of incomplete malolactic fermentation before the wine was bottled. A good way to get rid of the effervescence is to let the wine breathe. Alternatively you can use a bottle vacuum device, after about five minutes the effervescence will vanish.

Sediment- this is not normally a problem, however both red and white wines can produce sediment after a number of months in a bottle. The sediment consists of tartrate crystals and is totally harmless. If anything the building of sediment can be considered a good sign because it means that the wine was not subjected to much

(if any) filtering, meaning that the flavours and aromas should be preserved better.

A good way to get around sediment (if it is a problem) is to stand the bottle upright, the day before opening, so that the sediment can settle to the bottom of the bottle.

You can also decant your wine; decanting will “open up” the flavour of both young and old wines, but younger wines in particular. To decant, pour the wine slowly and evenly into your decanter.

Cleaning and maintenance

WARNING: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR

APPLIANCE IS DISCONNECTED FROM

YOUR MAINS SUPPLY BEFORE

ATTEMPTING TO CLEAN IT. o Do not clean the appliance by pouring water onto it or spraying water over it. o The interior of the wine cooler should be cleaned periodically, using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water. o Clean the accessories separately with soap and water.

Do not clean them in a dishwasher. o Do not use abrasive products, detergents or soaps. o After washing the appliance, wipe over the area that you have cleaned with a damp cloth and then dry it thoroughly. o When cleaning is complete, dry your hands and then reconnect the plug to your mains supply.

16

Defrosting o Defrosting occurs automatically inside of the wine cooler during operation. The defrost water is collected by the evaporating tray and evaporates automatically. o The evaporating tray and defrost water drain hole should be cleaned periodically. This will prevent water from collecting in the bottom of the wine cooler, instead of flowing down the defrost drainage channel and drain hole. o You can also pour a small amount of water down the drain hole to clean inside of it. o You should be careful to make sure that wine bottles do not touch the rear wall of the appliance, as this can interrupt the automatic defrosting process and deflect water into the base of your wine cooler.

Installation

IMPORTANT: Before installation and usage read all the instructions and make sure that the voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on the rating plate are exactly the same as the voltage and frequency in your home. The rating plate can be found on the front left edge of the
