IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

WARNING!

Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:

This wine chiller must be properly installed and located in accordance with these instructions before it is used .

Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang on the shelves in the wine chiller . They could damage the wine chiller and seriously injure themselves .

Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas; clearances between the doors and between the doors and cabinet are necessarily small .

Be careful closing doors when children are in the area .

Unplug the wine chiller before cleaning and making repairs .

Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance .

NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be performed by a qualified individual.

Do not store or install this appliance outdoors .

DANGER! RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT

PROPER DISPOSAL OF THE WINE CHILLER

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past . Junked or abandoned refrigeration products are still dangerous… even if they will sit for “just a few days .”

If you are getting rid of your old appliance, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents .

Before You Throw Away Your Old

Refrigeration Product:

Take off the doors .

Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside .

CFC Disposal

Your old refrigerator has a cooling system that used CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) . CFCs are believed to harm stratospheric ozone .

If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure the CFC refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a qualified servicer . If you intentionally release this CFC refrigerant, you can be subject to fines and imprisonment under provisions of environmental legislation .

USE OF EXTENSION CORDS

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord.

However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be CSA certified, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum) and 120 volts .

2

GEAppliances.ca

HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY

Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.

For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance .

Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded .

If you have only a standard 2-prong wall outlet, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded

3-prong wall outlet .

The wine chiller should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating plate .

This provides the best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires .

Never unplug your wine chiller by pulling on the power cord . Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet .

Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged .

Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end .

When moving the wine chiller away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord .

USE OF ADAPTER PLUGS

Adapter plugs are not permitted in Canada.

READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

About the controls and settings.

Setting the Temperature Control

Display Panel

GEAppliances.ca

When the Wine Chiller is Plugged In

After plugging in the wine chiller and making your temperature selection, allow the wine chiller to reach the set temperature before loading your wine . This may take up to 12 hours to completely stabilize .

After loading the wine, you may notice a rise in the temperature . Allow adequate time for the temperature to return back to the set temperature . This may take up to 12 hours to completely stabilize .

On some models, if there is no key operation for 30 seconds, the display screen will turn off .

The display screen will turn on again, if you touch any key .

When powering on, the temperature of the zones will be adjusted according to the factory pre-set .

By pressing the Temperature-rise key , the temperature will increase 1°C (or °F) .

By pressing the Temperature-drop key , the temperature will decrease 1°C (or °F) .

The upper zone temperature range is 5~12°C, the lower zone temperature range is 12~18°C .

The factory pre-set temperature is 8/15°C

(upper/lower zones) .

Switching of the Fahrenheit temperature and Celsius temperature

Press the Light key and the Power key at the same time for 3 seconds to switch between Celsius temperature and Fahrenheit temperature; the screen will display the

Fahrenheit temperature or Celsius temperature under the current mode .

NOTE: WHEN MIXING ANY COMPARTMENT FOR BOTH RED WINE AND WHITE WINE STORAGE,

WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU PLACE RED WINE BOTTLES ON TOP SHELF AND WHITE WINE ON

BOTTOM SHELF.

Interior Light

On some models, after the power is on for

3 seconds, the lighting turns on by default for

30 seconds . If the lighting key is not operated within 30 seconds, the lighting will automatically turn off .

Press the Light key to turn on or turn off the light .

Installation Instructions

About the controls and settings.

Important:

In order to extend the compressor life, please restart wine cooler after waiting 3 minutes .

Memory Function:

The cooler has a power off memory function . When power comes on again, the wine cooler will operate according to the setting mode before the power went off .

Fault Indication:

• If there is failure on the sensor, the screen may display failure codes, such as: “E” and “F” .

When the screen displays these errors, please do not disassemble it or check by yourself . You should contact an authorized service person for repair .

• If the temperature in the cooler is too low, it will display “L” .

• When the temperature in the cooler is too high, the screen will display “H” and will flash . Under this state, the buzzer will buzz once every second for 30 seconds; This will repeat one minute later, the buzzer will continue to give alarm for another 30 seconds; After the alarm is given three times, it will not give alarm any more . You can press any key to cancel the alarm sound .

Call for service if any of the above error messages show .

You should touch the temperature control panel softly as the panel is touch screen control . Please protect the touch control panel carefully to avoid scratching,keep far away from strong magnetic fields and high humidity, or it can cause wine cooler to not work properly .

During the operation of the wine chiller, the back wall of the chilling chamber can form water balls or frost . This is normal . You do not need to defrost or wipe off water drops because the back wall will defrost automatically . The defrosted water will be collected into a discharge channel and the water will flow to the water receiver above the compressor and will evaporate there .

When there is too much frost at the back of inner side of cabinet, please turn off the power

until the defrosting is finished.

Due to the air circulation in the wine cooler, some areas with different temperatures are generated:

• The upper area has the highest temperature.

• The lower area has the lowest temperature.

Care and cleaning.

GEAppliances.ca

Cleaning the Outside

IMPORTANT: Unplug the wine chiller before cleaning.

Keep the outside clean.

The cabinet can be washed with mild soap and water . Rinse thoroughly with clear water .

Never use abrasive scouring powders .

Use a glass cleaner or mild soap and water and a soft cloth to clean the glass door . Do not use any abrasive powders .

Wipe the control panel with a damp cloth .

Dry thoroughly . Do not use cleaning sprays, large amounts of soap and water, abrasives or sharp objects on the panel—they can damage it . Some paper towels can also scratch the control panel .

Do not wipe the wine chiller with a soiled dishcloth or towel. These may leave a residue that can erode the paint. Do not use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or cleaners containing bleach because these products can scratch and weaken the paint finish.

Stainless steel.

Regularly clean and polish the stainless steel areas (on some models) with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner such as Gleem-it

®

to preserve and protect the fine finish . Gleem-it

®

is available at leading hardware stores . It is also available through our website,

GEAppliances .ca, or call 1 .888 .261 .3055 .

Order part number WX10X15 .

Do not use appliance wax or polish on the stainless steel .

Protect the paint finish.

The finish on the outside of the wine chiller is a high-quality, baked-on paint finish .

With proper care, it will stay new-looking and rust-free for years . Apply a coat of kitchen/appliance wax when the wine chiller is new, and then at least twice a year .

Cleaning the Inside

IMPORTANT: Unplug the wine chiller before cleaning.

To clean the inner liner and racks, use a warm water and baking soda solution— about one tablespoon (15 mL) of baking soda to a quart (1 liter) of water . This both cleans and neutralizes odors .

Rinse and wipe dry .

Defrosting

Defrost whenever frost on the inside surfaces of the storage area becomes 1/8"

(3 mm) thick.

Never use a heater of any kind, scraper or sharp instrument to remove frost as it

may damage the wine chiller.

To defrost,

unplug the wine chiller . Remove the contents and wipe inside surfaces and

The vinyl door gasket may be cleaned with mild soap and water or a baking soda solution . Rinse well .

Do not use detergents, scouring powders, spray cleaners or other harsh chemicals to clean the interior.

racks with a clean towel . If frost does not come off easily, allow the frost to melt somewhat and wipe off .

After defrosting,

make sure inside surfaces are dry; then return the contents to the wine chiller and set the temperature control to the desired setting .

In the Event of a Power Failure

If the power fails, open the door as infrequently as possible to maintain the temperature . A gradual rise in temperature should not have any adverse effect on the wine .

If it is extremely hot, you may want to unload the wine from the wine chiller and move the wine to a cooler location until power is restored .

When power is restored, the controls automatically are set to the Factory

Setting

50°F (10°C) . If needed, reset the controls to the desired setting .
