•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
Note: Before connecting the Wine Cabinet 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 left side of the door.
Place your Wine Cabinet on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To level your Wine
Cabinet, adjust the front levelling foot at the bottom of the Wine Cabinet.
Locate the Wine Cabinet away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct
sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extreme cold
ambient temperatures may also cause the unit not to perform properly.
Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
The Wine Cabinet should be positioned where the ambient temperature is between 5°C and 35°C. If the ambient
temperature is above or below this range, the performance of the unit may be affected. Placing the appliance in
extreme cold or hot conditions may cause the interior temperatures to fluctuate. The range of setting
temperatures may not be reached.
Plug the Wine Cabinet into an appropriate socket. Should the plug require changing, use the instructions as given
in the Electrical Requirements section.

normal and is due to the length of the activation time. Once the Wine Cabinet has been running for a few hours the
temperatures will stabilise.
LOADING THE WINE BOTTLES
The bottle capacity of the Wine Cabinets is based on a standard 750ml Bordeaux style bottle. If larger wine bottles,
such as Champagne bottles, are to be stored it may be necessary to remove some of the shelves so that the bottles
can be stacked on top of each other.
Your Wine Cabinet may have been supplied with a Water Tray. This can be used to maintain the humidity inside the
cabinet, to prevent the corks from drying out. The water tray should be filled with water and placed on the top shelf. If
the water tray is used the bottle capacity will be reduced.
HWO7MA
The wine bottles should be located on the wire racks with the neck of the bottles facing the door.

HW19MA
The bottles on the top five shelves should be positioned into the slots in the shelves so that the necks of
the bottles are adjacent to each other.
On the bottom shelf two bottles can be laid side by side in the slots in the shelf and then two bottles laid on
top.
The shelves can be removed if larger bottles are to be stored.
HW40RMA
The bottles on the top five shelves should be positioned into the slots in the shelves so that the
necks of the bottles are adjacent to each other.
The bottles on the bottom two shelves can be laid side by side in the slots in the shelves.
The shelves can be removed if larger bottles are to be stored.
HW46MA
In the upper compartment the bottles on the two shelves should be positioned into the slots in

In the lower compartment the bottles on the top three shelves should be positioned into the
slots in the shelves so that the necks of the bottles are adjacent to each other.
The bottles on the bottom shelf can be laid side by side in the slots in the shelf.
The shelves can be removed if larger bottles are to be stored.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
How to remove a shelf
HW19MA, HW40RMA, HW46MA
