BEFORE USING YOUR APPLIANCE
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
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.
Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Install the handle on the door.
INSTALLATION OF YOUR APPLIANCE
The appliances are designed to be for built-in or recessed or free standing installation.
WARNING: Do not store or install the appliance outdoors.
CAUTION: This appliance is designed for storing and cooling wines. Do not store perishable food,
medicine or other medical products.
Place your appliance on a hard and level floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully
loaded.
We do not recommend installing the appliance on carpet.
To level your appliance, adjust the leveling legs at the bottom of the appliance if needed.
For free standing installation, 5 inches (127mm) of space between the back and sides of the
appliance are suggested, which allows the proper air circulation to cool the compressor and
condenser. Even for built-in installation, it is a must to keep a ¼” (6.35mm) space on each side and at
the top. And the air vent at the front of the appliance must never be covered or blocked in any way.
NOTE: Do NOT install the appliance near an oven or other heating source. Direct sunlight may affect
the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. For best performance, do
not install the appliance behind a cabinet door or block the base grille.
Avoid locating the appliance in area that may be exposed to excessive moisture.
Plug in the appliance into an exclusive, grounded wall power outlet. Do not under any circumstances
cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning power and/or
grounding should be directed toward a qualified electrician or an authorized service center.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
WARNING
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is
damaged, have it replaced by a qualified electrician or an authorized service center.
This appliance requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly
grounded. The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent
accidental injury.
The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating
that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevent
overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug the
appliance by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
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
appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord.

EXTENSION CORD
Because of potential safety hazards, it is strongly recommended that you do not use an extension cord
with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely necessary that it be a
UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet
and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.
