2 - Important safety instructions
PLEASE NOTE
You must always observe some basic precautions when
using your wine cabinet, including:
Only use your wine cabinet for the use intended, as described in this guide.
Never unplug the wine cabinet by pulling on the power cord. Grip the plug firmly and pull straight out to remove from wall socket.
Immediately repair or replace any worn or damaged cord. Never use a cord that is split or which shows signs
of wear along its length or on its ends.
Do not allow children to climb on, sit on or stand on the wine cabinet, nor hang from its shelves. They could
damage the wine cabinet and injure themselves seriously.
Be sure always to keep your keys out of childrens’ reach, to avoid them locking themselves in.
3 - Connecting to mains supply
FOR YOUR SAFETY, THE WINE CABINET MUST BE CORRECTLY EARTHED
The wine cabinet's power cord is equipped with a plug which fits into any
standard socket with earth connection, to prevent any risk of shock.
Have the mains socket checked by a qualified electrician
to make sure it is actually connected to earth.
If this is not the case, you must have it replaced with a
socket which is suitably earthed.
If the power cord is damaged, have it replaced by a
qualified electrician to prevent any risk.
If the wall socket is not equipped with an earth connection, it is your
responsibility and your duty to have it replaced with a suitably earthed
wall socket.
If the plug does not match your socket, you may have
another fitted. PLEASE NOTE: new electrical cables and
plugs should be fitted by a qualified electrician.
Make sure the socket is correctly earthed and that your
installation is protection by a differential circuit-breaker.

4 - Installing your wine cabinet
- When unpacking your cabinet after delivery, make sure there are no visible external defects (i.e. signs of impact, deformation, etc.).
- Open the door and make sure that nothing is broken or missing (e.g. walls, shelves, hinges, control panel, etc.).
- Move your cabinet to your intended installation site. This location must:
- not be in a confined space, to allow air to circulate (not in a closed cupboard, for example)
- not be near any source of heat
- not be too humid (e.g. laundry, linen, bathroom, etc.)
- have a stable and flat floor
- be equipped with a plug (for a standard 230V, 50/60 Hz, 16 A plug, with earth connection and differential circuit-breaker)
- Pull out the power cord so that it is accessible and position your cabinet while leaving 8 to 10 cm between its back and the wall.
- Adjust your cabinet's front feet (by screwing them in or out), until it is level (use of a spirit level is recommended).
- Remove the protective devices placed inside your cabinet.
- Take the charcoal filter you will find in the small bag of cabinet accessories, and fit it, from the inside of your cabinet, in the ventilation hole
at the top on the left side.
- Arrange shelves according to your requirements (see section 7 of this guide)
- Before plugging in, allow the cabinet to sit for 48 hours, to allow fluids to settle.
NOTE: When moving your cabinet, never tilt it more than 45¡, and always on the side of the power cord.

5 - Putting into service-Temperature settings
- After waiting 48 hours, connect your cabinet to the mains socket after making sure it is correctly supplied (check fuses
and amperage and circuit-breaker). Connect another electrical device to check mains if necessary.
- Once your cabinet is plugged in, make sure the On-Off switch of the control panel is in the "On" position ( I ).
- If the switch is at the "On" position( see above diagram) when you connect your wine cabinet to the mains, the blue warning
light only lights up if the ambient temperature is higher than 12¡C.
(In the event of an anomaly, please refer to Chapter 9).

TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT
Note: setting the temperature of your wine cabinet is done solely from the control panel which is laid out in the following way.
Temperature display panel:
Adjustment dial:
Displays the effective temperature
inside the wine cabinet
Enables the setting of required
temperature inside the wine cabinet
Circuit indicator lights
Enable you to see which circuit, hot
(red) and cold (blue), is operating
TEST button:
Enables you to test your cabinet’s
circuits (see Chapter 9)
N.B. For safety reasons, the control panel's protective transparent cover only
opens (pivots towards the front)when the door of the cabinet is open.
ON/OF Switch
Hot (red) and
cold (blue) indicator

Test button
Temperature
adjustment dial
Temperature display
To set the temperature of your cabinet:
Turn the temperature setting dial until the mark
is on the interior temperature required.
WARNING: To operate correctly, your cabinet should be located in a room where the temperature range is between 0° and 35°C.
If not, it will be difficult to obtain the temperature required.
Recommended setting range: 10° to 14°C.
It may be that despite following all the recommendations in this manual you cannot obtain the temperature your require. As each
situation is unique, it is possible that it will be necessary to make some minor alterations to the recommendations.
To offer your wine ideal ageing conditions, your EuroCave wine cabinet is equipped with a safety thermostat that switches on if
there is an excessive or unusual drop in temperature within (Temperature lower than 5°C).

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LAYOUT AND STORAGE YOUR WINE CABINET
Your EuroCave cabinet was designed to store a maximum number of bottles in total security. We recommend that you observe
the tips below to optimize loading.
- Spread your bottles out as evenly as possible over the shelves, so that weight is not concentrated in one point. Also make sure
your bottles do not touch the back of the cabinet, or the step at bottom.
- Also make sure that bottles are not all grouped together at the top or bottom of the cabinet.
- Observe the loading instructions provided in section 7, according to the type of storage fixtures with which your cabinet is equipped, and never stack bottles on a sliding shelf.
- If your cabinet has sliding shelves, they should be installed toward the top of the cabinet to facilitate everyday access.
- Also place one or two bottles of each of your wines on the sliding shelves and keep your reserve bottles on the storage shelves.
Then simply replace bottles when necessary.
- Never try to pull out more than one sliding shelf at a time.

8 - Routine maintenance
Your Eurocave cabinet is easy to operate and has proven its reliability. It will provide long-lasting satisfaction if you follow the simple maintenance
and cleaning operations listed below.
- Replace the activated charcoal filter in our cabinet's upper ventilation hole each year (your EuroCave distributor keeps this accessory in stock).
- Remove dust from the heat exchanger (metal screen on the back of the cabinet) twice a year.
- Make sure the power cord is unplugged before cleaning the back of your cabinet, or before moving it.
- Clean the inside of your cabinet thoroughly once a year, after unplugging and unloading it (use water and a mild cleaning product, then rinse
carefully).
- Put the power switch on the "0" position, then unplug the cabinet before changing the temperature display battery(ies). Remove the display(s)
through the front of the control panel, as shown below.
Use silver oxide SR 44W (357) battery
When the battery has been replaced, put the sensor wire back into the panel, and clip the display unit back in.
To assure that your wine cabinet provides long-lasting service, you should check it regularly and
inform your dealer if you note anything unusual.

1- Place your hand on the heat exchanger (metal screen at the back of your cabinet) to check its
temperature. Contact your dealer if cold.
2-If the heat exchanger is hot, set the cold temperature as high as possible (as far as it will go clockwise) and
make sure that the cold circuit operation indicator goes off. If the compressor does not stop, unplug the cabinet and contact your dealer.
DURING OPERATION
A liquid crystal display indicates a temperature below the
temperature you set.
A liquid crystal display indicates a temperature above the
temperature you set.
1 - Check the manual's recommended temperature settings (See page 7).
2-Check that the red hot circuit operation indicator light is on.
3-Press on the TEST button to check that both indicator lights (red and blue) are alight. If either step 2 or 3
