instructions for your model. Use your Wine Cooler only
as instructed in this guide. These instructions are not
meant to cover every possible condition and situation
that may occur. Common sense and caution must be
practiced when installing, operating, and maintaining any
appliance.
Record Your Model and Serial Numbers
Record the model and serial numbers in the space
provided below. The serial plate is located on the upper

Important Safety Instructions
WARNING
Electrical Information
WARNING
Child Safety
• 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 three-prong
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.
• 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.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should be
replaced by an authorized service technician to
prevent any risk.
• Remove the door(s) of any appliance that is not in
use, even if it is being discarded.
• 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.
• 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.
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.
• Allow space around the unit for good air circulation. Leave a 2 inch space on the back and sides of the wine cooler for adequate circulation.
• Be sure the wine cooler stays in the upright position during transport.
• Keep the wine cooler from any hazardous or
combustible agents.

NOTE
The exterior walls of the wine cooler may become quite
warm as the compressor works to transfer heat from
the inside. Temperatures as much as 30° F warmer
than room temperature can be expected. For this
reason it is particularly important in hotter climates to
allow enough space for air circulation around your wine
cooler.
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.

• 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.

Step 10:Use knife to remove the parts�,see chart 5.
• Wipe containers dry before placing them in the wine

• 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.

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 litres) 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.

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.
WARNING
If leaving the wine cooler door open while on vacation,
make certain that children cannot climb inside and
become entrapped.
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.
