IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

Electrical Information

• The wine cooler must be plugged into its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz., 15 Amp,

AC only electrical outlet. The power cord of the appliance is equipped with a threeprong grounding plug for your protection against electrical shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into a properly grounded three prong receptacle. The receptacle must be installed in accordance with local codes and ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Avoid connecting refrigerator to a Ground Fault Interruptor

(GFI) circuit. Do not use an extension cord or adapter plug.

• If the power cord is damaged, it should be replaced by an authorized service technician to prevent any risk.

• Never unplug the wine cooler by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly, and pull straight out from the receptacle to prevent damaging the power cord.

• Unplug the wine cooler before cleaning and before replacing a light bulb to avoid electrical shock.

• Performance may be affected if the voltage varies by 10% or more. Operating the wine cooler with insufficient power can damage the compressor. Such damage is not covered under your warranty.

• Do not plug the unit into an electrical outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord to prevent the wine cooler from being turned off accidentally.

Grounding type wall receptacle

Do not, under any circumstances, cut, remove, or bypass the grounding prong.

WARNING

Child Safety

• Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately after the wine cooler is unpacked.

Children should never use these items to play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.

• Remove all staples from the carton.

Staples can cause severe cuts, and destroy finishes if they come in contact with other appliances or furniture.

• An empty, discarded wine cooler is a very dangerous attraction to children.

• Remove the door(s) of any appliance that is not in use, even if it is being discarded.

WARNING

Proper Disposal of your Wine Cooler

Risk of child entrapment

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned wine coolers are still dangerous – even if they will sit for “just a few days”. If you are getting rid of your old wine cooler, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.

We strongly encourage responsible appliance recycling/disposal methods.

Check with your utility company or visit www.recyclemyoldfridge.com for more information on recycling your old wine cooler.

Before you throw away your old wine cooler:

• Remove doors.

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

• Have refrigerant removed by a qualified service technician.

INSTALLATION

This Use & Care Guide provides general operating instructions for your model. Use the appliance only as instructed in this Use & Care

Guide. Before starting the wine cooler, follow these important first steps.

Location

• Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.

• For optimal performance, it is recommended that you install the wine cooler where the ambient temperature is between 70 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit.

• Leave a 2 inch space at the back of the wine cooler for adequate air circulation.

• Be sure the wine cooler stays in the upright position during transport.

• Keep the wine cooler from any hazardous or combustible agents.

Cleaning

• Wash any removable parts of the wine cooler interior, and exterior with mild detergent and warm water. Wipe dry. Do not use harsh cleaners on these surfaces.

• Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments, which can scratch the appliance surface when removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from the tape can be removed with a mixture of warm water and mild detergent, or touch the residue with the sticky side of tape already removed. Do not remove the serial plate.

Important Safeguards: Do not store food in your wine cooler as interior temperature may not get cool enough to prevent spoilage. In summer months or areas of high humidity, the glass door may build up moisture. To remove the moisture, wipe it away.

Leveling

The wine cooler must have all bottom corners resting firmly on solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support a fully loaded wine cooler. NOTE: It is Very Important for your wine cooler to be level in order to function properly. If the wine cooler is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.

To Level Your Wine Cooler:

After removing all interior and exterior packaging materials, use a carpenter’s level to level the wine cooler from front-to-back. Adjust the leveling legs in front, ½ bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open.

Handle Installation

1. Place the handle over the two mounting screws at top of door.

2. Tighten the two set screws in bottom of handle using Allen wrench.

DOOR REVERSAL INSTRUCTIONS

Reversing the door swing

The glass door can be opened from left to right and vice versa. Should you desire to change the opening direction, please follow these instructions.

NOTE

Door reversal is not available for a unit with control panel on door. The following operation is only for a unit with control panel inside the cabinet.

Remarks: These instructions are based on a unit with right hinge installed already.

To reverse the door from right hinge to left hinge, you will need the extra hinge kit that comes packed inside the unit.

Save all removed parts in case of door re-reversal.

1. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the top hinge pin at the top right corner of door. (See Figure 1.)

3. Remove the three screws that hold the upper right hinge to the top of the cabinet. (See Figure 3.)

• Install the wine cooler in the coolest part of a dry and ventilated room, out of direct sunlight and away from heating ducts or registers.

Do not place the wine cooler next to heatproducing appliances such as a range, oven or dishwasher.

• Level the wine cooler so the door close tightly.

• Do not over crowd the wine cooler or block cold air vents. Doing so causes the wine cooler to run longer and use more energy.

Shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the wine cooler less efficient.

• Wipe containers dry before placing them in the wine cooler. This cuts down on moisture build-up inside the unit.

• Organize the wine cooler to reduce door openings. Remove as many items as needed at one time and close the door as soon as possible.

CARE AND CLEANING

Cleaning the wine cooler

• Before cleaning, turn the temperature control to OFF, unplug the wine cooler and remove the bottles.

• Clean your wine cooler once every two months.

Inside: Wash inside surfaces of the wine cooler with a solution of two tablespoons of baking soda in one quart (1.136 liters) warm water.

Rinse and dry. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning in the area of the controls, or any electrical parts.

Wash the removable parts with the baking soda solution mentioned above, or mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.

Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners, or alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash removable parts in a dishwasher.

Outside: Wash the cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.

Care of plastic parts

• Be sure and protect the door gasket. It should be kept clean at all times.

• If the plastic parts in the wine cooler remain contaminated by oil (animal or vegetable) for a long period of time, they will age and crack easily. Please clean them on a regular basis.

Vacation and Moving Tips

Vacations:

If the wine cooler will not be used for several months:

• Remove all wine bottles and unplug the power cord.

• Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.

• Leave the wine cooler door open slightly, blocking it open if necessary, to prevent odor and mold growth.

Moving: When moving the wine cooler, follow these guidelines to prevent damage:

• Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.

• Remove wine bottles and clean the wine cooler.

• Secure all loose items by taping them securely in place to prevent damage.

• In a moving vehicle, secure the wine cooler in an upright position to prevent movement. Also, protect the outside of the wine cooler with a blanket or similar item.
