displayed at an approximate 40° angle.
4 Product Features
Échelon Wine Captain
All Wine Captain Models feature specially designed wine
racks that allow for the proper horizontal storage of
wine. The corks remain moist, which keeps air from
entering the bottles.
Models 2115WC and 2115WCOL will accommodate up to
24 bottles (750 mL size), and Models 2175WC and
2175WCOL will accommodate up to 48 bottles (750 mL
size).
The Right Temperature for Wine
• Wine Captain Models feature either a stainless steel,
black or full overlay ready door frames.
a. Stainless steel units feature a wrapped 2 in. (5.1 cm)
wide door frame, handle. Stainless steel doors are
not field reversible.
b. Black units feature a seamless 1-1/2 in. (3.8 cm) wide
door frame with a slightly contoured top mount
integrated door handle that is field reversible and
easy to maintain.
c. Door full overlay wood frames are customer
provided, and not supplied by U-Line.
Your Wine Captain has been designed to provide three
temperature zones within the cabinet so the specific
storage requirements of your finest wines can be satisfied.
• Self-closing door hinges that engage when the door is
open approximately 8-10 in. (20.3-25.4 cm), ensure a
positive door seal and prevents door bounce back.
Superior Features of Échelon
• Stainless steel models feature a full wrap stainless steel
cabinet.
• An electronic control panel with digital display allows
you to display the interior temperature in each zone.
The unit is shipped from the factory with a default
temperature of 50°F. The controller only controls the
middle zone. This zone can be set from 45-54°F. The
upper zone will be approximately 5-6°F warmer and
the lower zone will be approximately 5-6°F cooler than
the middle zone. The electronic control and digital
display provide an attractive appearance, and its
method of control provides precise temperatures for
storage of multiple types of wine.
• An interior light will illuminate automatically as the
door is opened, providing easy visual identification of
the wine. However, you can easily select two other
modes of operation:
• Black models feature a vinyl clad steel cabinet that
provides a rich textured look, and resists scratching,
peeling and flaking.
• Wine Captain Models are not recommended for
outdoor use.
• Wine Captain Models installed in either a free-standing
or built-in configuration must be anchored to prevent
tipping, using the originally provided anti-tip kit.
Features and specifications are subject to change without
notice.
a. The interior light can be illuminated while the door
is closed, providing an attractive display of your
wine collection for a period of four hours.
b. A blackout/Sabbath mode (not Star K certified)
allows you to darken both interior lights and the
LED display, while maintaining complete
temperature control in the unit.
• The door features tinted thermal glass that protects
your wines from potentially harmful light rays while
providing a fashionable appearance.
• Wine racks have a contoured maple front trim that
adds a fashionable appearance to the Wine Captain.
The wood facing may be stained, with a WATER-based
stain, or replaced in its entirety with other woods or
manufactured products (such as Corian® or Sandstone).
• Five fully extendable sliding wine racks provide easy
access to all wine bottles.
• Black vinyl wine racks blend with the wine bottles,
placing greater emphasis on the wines themselves. The
vinyl holds the wine bottles more effectively than a
chromed or painted finish.

Normal Operating Sounds
All models incorporate rigid foam insulated cabinets to
provide high thermal efficiency and maximum sound
reduction for its internal working components. In spite of
this technology, your model may make sounds that are
unfamiliar.
Normal operating sounds may be more noticeable
because of the unit’s environment. Hard surfaces such as
cabinets, wood/vinyl/tiled floors and paneled walls have a
tendency to reflect normal appliance operating noises.

6 Wine Guide
Wine Recommendations
To most, wine is a delicious mystery. We purchase it,
uncork it, and savor its taste and beauty. But there is so
much more to true wine appreciation. Many secrets are
simply too good to keep bottled up. The U-Line
Corporation is proud to present Spilling Wine Secrets
online at www.U-Line.com/resources/wine_secrets. Take a
moment to explore this section of our website to uncover
wine myths, learn ideal storage conditions or ask our wine
expert, Mr. Dave Barna, a specific question relating to
wine. Mr. Barna will respond to your inquiry, and it may
also be selected to appear on our Questions and Answers
page.
Wine Selections Suggestions
Selecting the right wine for the right occasion can
sometimes be a seemingly awkward or difficult task for
the beginning wine enthusiast. We would therefore like
to present you with a few suggestions which may provide
a little more confidence and enjoyment when choosing
and serving your wines.
When selecting wines, keep an open mind and do not be
afraid to be adventurous. Do not view the subject of wine
so seriously it discourages you from learning and
discovering for fear of embarrassment if something is
incorrect. Wine is best viewed as a hobby and enjoyed.
When assembling your collection, try not to become
obsessed with “Vintages.” Although a chart can be a
useful tool, generalizations about a specific year have led
more than one collector to disappointment. In many
instances an “Off Year” will provide a better value and
more drinking enjoyment.
The primary guideline to the subject of wine is your own
palate. Do not be afraid to make mistakes. Experiment,
discover, but most of all, enjoy yourself and your new
U-Line product.
3. Remove the cabinet door.

Suggestions for Matching Food and Wine
Although there are no hard fast rules for matching wine
to food, observe some guidelines. Delicate dishes should
be accompanied by lighter more delicate wines. Fullflavored foods should be matched with fuller-bodied
wines.
As a general rule, one should aim to ascend in flavor and
quality of wines served.
Table 1
Serve a:
Before a:

Any step back in quality will be noticed. If a fine wine is
tasted prior to a lesser wine, many of the fine wine’s
subtle qualities may be missed.

Common Tasting Terms
Terminology
Description
Acidity
A critical element of wine that is responsible for preserving the wines freshness. Excess acidity results in an
overly tart and sour wine.
Balance
A desired trait where tannin, fruit and acidity are in total harmony. Wines with good balance tend to age
gracefully.
Body
The weight and presence of wine in the mouth provided by the alcohol and tannin level. Full-bodied wines
tend to have this strong concentration.
Bouquet
The blending of a wine's aroma within the bottle over a period of time, caused by volatile acidity.
Complex
A subjective term often used in tasting. A wine is said to be complex if it offers a variety of flavors and scents
that continue to evolve as it develops.
Flabby
A wine that lacks structure, or is heavy to the taste, lacks acidity.
Full-Bodied
Wine high in alcohol and extract, generally speaking, fills the mouth, powerful.
Lean
Generally describes wines that are slim, lacking of generosity or thin.
Oaky
A desirable flavor imparted to wine if done in moderation. Most wines are aged in oak barrels one to three
years, thereby receiving this toasty oak characteristic. However, if a weak wine is left in contact too long with
an oak barrel it will tend to be overpowered with an oaky taste.
Tannin
Tannins are extracted from the grape skins and stems and are necessary for a well-balanced red wine. Tannins
are easily identified in wine tasting as the drying sensation over the gums. Tannins generally fade as a wine
ages.

7 Cleaning and Maintenance
General Cleaning
Exterior Cleaning (As Required)
Black Models:
• Surfaces may be cleaned with a mild detergent and
warm water solution. Do not use solvent-based or
abrasive cleaners. Use a soft sponge and rinse with
clean water. Wipe with a soft, clean towel to prevent
water spotting.
Stainless Steel Models:
• Stainless steel surfaces and components can discolor
when exposed to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, salt
water or cleaners with bleach.
• Keep your stainless steel unit looking new by cleaning
with a good quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner/
polish on a monthly basis. For best results use Claire®
Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner, which can be
purchased from U-Line Corporation (P/N 173348).
Comparable products are acceptable. Frequent
cleaning will remove surface contamination that could
lead to rust. Some installations may require cleaning
on a weekly basis.
• Do not clean with steel wool pads.
• Do not use cleaners that are not specifically
intended for stainless steel on stainless steel
surfaces (this includes glass, tile and counter
cleaners).
Maintenance
Proper maintenance of your U-Line product will ensure
efficiency, top performance and long life. The
maintenance intervals listed are based on normal
conditions. You may want to shorten the intervals if you
have pets or other special considerations.
Defrosting
Automatic (Cycle) Defrost Models
Automatic defrost models do not produce frost in normal
operating conditions. However, a frost pattern may be
noticed on the interior walls if the unit is repeatedly
opened in a high heat or high humidity location. If this
frost pattern does not clear within 24 hours, your unit will
require manual defrosting.
WARNING
DO NOT use any type of electrical heating device,
ice pick, knife or other sharp instrument to
defrost; this could damage the inner lining or
refrigeration system and void the warranty.
IMPORTANT
The drain pan was not designed to capture the
water created when manually defrosting. To
prevent water from overflowing the drain pan,
place towels or other absorbent materials over the
interior drain trough, under the evaporator (Figure
10, 1), before defrosting.
• If any surface discoloring or rusting appears, clean it
quickly with Bon-Ami® or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser®
and a non-abrasive cloth. Always clean in the direction
of the grain. Always finish this process with Claire
Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable
product to prevent further problems.
• Using abrasive pads such as Scotchbrite™ will
cause the graining in the stainless steel to
become blurred.
• Rust that is not cleaned up promptly can penetrate into
the surface of the stainless steel and complete removal
of the rust may not be possible.
Interior Cleaning (As Required)
1
• Disconnect power to the unit. Clean the interior and all
removed components using a mild non-abrasive
detergent and warm water solution applied with a soft
sponge or non-abrasive cloth. Rinse the interior using a
soft sponge and clean water.
• Do not use any solvent-based or abrasive
cleaners. These types of cleaners may transmit
taste to the interior products and damage or
discolor the interior.

To defrost:
CAUTION
1. Turn unit off.
2. Remove all products from the interior and prop the
door in an open position (2 in. (5 cm) minimum).
3. Allow the frost to completely melt naturally. Clean the
interior and all removed components using a mild nonabrasive detergent and warm water solution applied
with a soft sponge or non-abrasive cloth. NOTE: DO
NOT use any solvent-based or abrasive cleaners. They
will discolor or damage the interior.
4. Dampen a soft sponge or non-abrasive cloth in clean
water and wipe down the cabinet interior and removed
components to remove any detergent residue. Rinse the
sponge or cloth in clean water and repeat as necessary
until the cabinet and components are clean.
DO NOT use any type of cleaner on the condenser
unit.
4. Clean the condenser coil (Figure 11, 2) using a soft
brush with a “combing” action or vacuum cleaner. Do
not touch the condenser coil.
5. Position the grille to align the mounting screws with
the holes in the cabinet.
6. Secure, but do not over-tighten both grille screws.

within the housing will generate excessive heat,
causing damage to the light housing and cabinet
interior, and will compromise the precise
temperature control of your unit.
3. Replace the bulb only with a genuine U-Line P/N 31317
replacement.
4. Replace the lens by first inserting the tab side back into
the housing at a slight angle. While gently pushing the
lens towards the tab end, push the free end up into the
housing, and release when you will hear a snap/click.

Wine Rack Removal/Installation
WARNING
To remove a rack from the cabinet:
1. Grasp the end of the rack, and gently slide it out until
it stops.
2. Remove any bottles stored on the rack.
To prevent permanent damage to the inner liner
of your unit, the wood trim MUST be removed
from the unit for staining and/or finishing. Allow
stain/finish to dry thoroughly (at least 24 hours
per coat) in accordance with the product
manufacturer’s instructions prior to
reinstallation. Failure to do so may cause the
inner liner of the unit to have a permanent odor,
which is not covered by the warranty.
If staining the trim is desired, it must be done before the
application of any type of final finish. Review the
following staining/final finish and final finish-only
guidelines when staining/ and or sealing the wood to
ensure proper adhesion and durability of the finish.
NOTE: Glass in door is tinted. Stain may look darker
when door is closed.
Staining and final finish application:
ULIN_0207_A
Figure 25
3. Press the left rack release lever (Figure 25) down, and
at the same time, lift the corresponding right rack
release lever up, and pull the rack out until it is free of
the tracks and the cabinet.
IMPORTANT
Do not remove the track side rails from the cabinet.
To insert a rack in the cabinet:
1. Align the left and right rack channels with the tracks
in the cabinet, and ensuring an even track
engagement on both sides, gently push the rack into
the cabinet until it stops.
2. Before reloading the rack, ensure proper operation of
the travel stops in the left and right track rails by
pulling the rack out gently until it completely stops.
Wood Trim Finishing
Interior components of your U-Line unit are equipped
with a natural wood trim for appearance and durability.
Although this wood trim has been coated with a clear
sealer at the factory, it is recommended that the trim be
stained (if desired), and receive a final finish coating prior
to the unit going into full-time service.
18
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior
components, and remove the trim from the cabinet
interior.
NOTE: Your model may contain an electronic display
panel in the lowest level trim piece. After removing the
trim screws, and gently pulling the trim from its location,
a wiring harness connector will become visible. Unplug
the connector, and remove the trim from the interior.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use oil-based stains on wood trim. Vapors
from oil-based stains will permanently penetrate
the liner and will not dissipate over time.
2. Apply Minwax® Water-Based Wood Stain to wood with
a synthetic bristle brush or a foam applicator. Allow
stain to penetrate approximately three minutes. Before
the stain is dry, take a stain dampened rag and remove
any excess stain remaining. Wipe in the direction of the
grain with medium pressure to achieve the desired stain
color.
3. After two hours, repeat step 2. This will even out the
color of the wood.
4. Allow stain to dry for a minimum of three hours before
applying the final finish.
5. If desired, sand the wood with very fine sandpaper to
smooth the surface after the staining process.
2115WC and 2115WCOL, 2175WC and 2175WCOL
6. Remove all dust from the wood, and apply one coat of
Minwax® Polycrylic® Protective Finish using a synthetic
bristle brush to the wood. This finish should be applied
in a thin coat following the direction of the grain.
Apply the finish to the back and sides of the wood first,
and allow it to dry for two hours. Apply the finish to the
front side of the wood next, and allow it to dry for two
hours. Sand with very fine 220 grit sandpaper. Apply
two addition coats of the finish in the same manner, but
do not sand the trim after the final third coat is applied.
7. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before
reinstalling the trim to the cabinet interior components.
Final finish-only application:
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior
components, and remove the trim.
2. Lightly scruff sand the wood trim with 280 or finer grit
sandpaper.
3. Remove sanding dust with a clean, dry cloth.
4. The factory-applied seal is compatible with virtually all
finishes. A low odor, water clean up, quick-drying finish
such as Minwax® Polycrylic® Protective Finish is
recommended (Minwax® Polycrylic® is an ultra fastdrying water-based finish). Apply a thin coat of a clear,
protective finish, following the container label
directions.
5. Lightly sand and reapply if desired.
6. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before
reinstalling the trim to the cabinet interior components.
