Section 1. Installation
This appliance is intended to be used exclusively for the storage of wine. This
appliance is designed for domestic use only and should be operated in
ambient temperatures (surrounding air temperature) between 16°C and 32°C
(61-90°F). If these temperatures are exceeded i.e. colder or warmer, the
appliance will not operate correctly.
1.1. Before Use
Remove all securing tapes. Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm
water with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5ml to 0.5 litre of water). Do not
use soap or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.
1.2. Installing the Door Handle
Carefully ease the door seal to one side
Attach the door handle using the two
screws
• Ease the door seal back into place
1.3. Installation & Ventilation Requirements
•
•
To ensure correct operation this appliance must not be located where
the temperatures may fall below 16°C or rise above 32°C.
Avoid the following locations: unheated kitchen, outhouse, conservatory,
garage.
For correct operation this appliance must be installed:
- In a dry atmosphere
- Out of direct sunlight.
- Away from extreme temperature (not next to a cooker or other sources of
heat)
Ensure the following points are observed during installation:
-
The appliance must be placed on a strong floor
The appliance must be level. Adjust the level by screwing the adjustable
foot up or down (use your fingers or a suitable spanner)
The appliance must be upright and in firm contact with the floor so that
the cabinet is stable.
You must ensure that the Front Ventilation Panel remains clear.

1.4. Shelves
•
•
•
•
The shelves can be pulled out by approximately 1/3 in order to facilitate
access to your wine.
Depending on the model supplied, your wine cooler will be fitted with
non-telescopic or telescopic shelves (see image below).
Always ensure that the door is fully open before pulling out the shelves.
Failure to do this may damage the door seal which may not be covered
under the guarantee.
Do not place any form of material across the shelves as this will prevent
air-circulation inside the unit and prevent your wine cooler from operating
correctly.

-
-
-
-
Please read this booklet thoroughly before installing and
switching on the appliance. The manufacturer accepts no
responsibility for incorrect installation and usage.
If this appliance is to replace an old refrigerator with a lock; as a
safety measure break or remove the lock and/or door before
disposal.
Your old appliances contain insulation gases and refrigerant that
must be disposed of correctly. Please ensure that the refrigerant
circuit is not damaged before the appliance is taken away for
correct disposal in line with current legislation. If there is any
doubt contact your Local Authority for instructions.
This appliance may contain the refrigerant isobutene (R600a).
This is a natural gas with a high level of environmental
compatibility; however, caution is required as isobutene is a
flammable gas. It is essential to ensure that refrigerant tubes are
not damaged during transportation and the installation of the
appliance. In the event that the refrigerant circuit is damaged,
avoid naked flames or sources of ignition and ventilate the room in
which the appliance is situated.
Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
The appliance shall not be used by children aged from 8 years

3.3. Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant is pumped
to the cooling system and through the coils or tubing at the rear of the
appliance. When the compressor is in operation you may hear a slight whirring
sound or pulsating noise. The thermostat controls the operation of the
compressor, and you may hear a slight click as it cycles in and out.
3.4. Energy Saving Advice
Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a cooker,
dishwasher or radiator. Locate the appliance in a cool well-ventilated room and
make sure that the air vents are clear.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long time, warm air will enter the cabinet,
and may cause condensation as well as affecting the energy consumption.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing properly

restored the appliance will start to operate but it may take some time to achieve

powders, highly perfumed cleaning products, wax polishes or cleaning products
containing bleach or alcohol.
4.2. External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. Do NOT use abrasive products.
There may be sharp edges on the underside of the product, so care should be
taken when cleaning. Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grille) and
the compressor at the back of the appliance, with a brush or vacuum cleaner, as
an accumulation of dust will affect the performance of the appliance and cause
increased energy consumption.
