Installing Your Wine Cellar
Unpacking Your Wine Cellar
1. Remove all packaging material. This includes the foam base and all
adhesive tape holding the wine cellar accessories inside and outside.
2. Inspect and remove any remains of packing, tape or printed
materials before powering on the wine cellar.
Leveling Your Wine Cellar
• Your wine cellar has four leveling legs which are located in the
front and rear corners of your wine cellar. After properly placing your
wine cellar in its final position, you can level your wine cellar.
• Leveling legs can be adjusted by turning them clockwise to raise your
wine cellar or by turning them counterclockwise to lower your wine
cellar. The wine cellar door will close easier when the leveling legs
are extended.
Proper Air Circulation
• To assure your wine cellar works at the maximum efficiency it was
designed for, you should install it in a location where there is proper
air circulation, plumbing and electrical connections.
• The following are recommended clearances around the wine cellar:
Sides……………2" (50mm)
Top....................2" (50mm)
Back..................2" (50mm)
• Do not over fill your wine cellar for proper wine cooling.
Note: If your wine cellar has been tilted for any reason, wait 24 hours
before plugging it in.

English
Electrical Requirement
• Make sure there is a suitable power Outlet (115 volts, 15 amps
outlet) with proper grounding to power the wine cellar.
• Avoid the use of three plug adapters or cutting off the third grounding
in order to accommodate a two plug outlet. This is a dangerous practice since it provides no effective grounding for the wine cellar and
may result in shock hazard.
Install Limitations
• Do not install your wine cellar in any location not properly insulated
or heated e.g. garage etc. Your wine cellar was not designed to
operate in temperature settings below 55˚ Fahrenheit.
• Select a suitable location for the wine cellar on a hard even
surface away from direct sunlight or heat source e.g. radiators,
baseboard heaters, cooking appliances etc. Any floor unevenness
should be corrected with the leveling legs located on the front and
rear bottom corners of the wine cellar.
• Your wine cellar is designed for free-standing installation only. It is
not designed for built-in application.
Use of Extension Cord
• Avoid the use of an extension cord because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions. If it is necessary to use an extension
cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding
plug and a 3-slot outlet that will accept the plug. The marked rating
of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the electrical
rating of the appliance.

Wine Cellar Features And Use
Initial Setup
Once you have plugged the unit into an electrical outlet, let the unit run for at
least 30 minutes to acclimatize itself before making any adjustments. During this
time, depending on the internal temperature, the red or white wine light will stay
on for the upper compartment and red or white wine light will stay on for the
lower compartment. The LED display will show the current internal temperature.
Temperature Adjustments:
See fig. # 1
• The wine cellar is preset from the factory to automatically
to accommodate temperature requirements for red or white wines.
• The wine cellar can be set to any temperature between 39˚ and 65˚F
in either of the compartments to accommodate your wine storage
requirements. To set the temperature hold the "Set" button for about 3
seconds. You will notice the temperature display blink for the upper
compartment. Press the up or down arrow button to increase or
decrease the temperature setting. Once the desired temperature is
attained, press the "Set" button. Doing this, the electronic control
panel will memorize the setting. The temperature display will revert
back to display the inside temperature. It may take some time to
reach the set temperature.
• Once the tempurature is set for the upper compartment, you will
notice the temperature display blink for the lower compartment.
Again press the up or down arrow button to increase or decrease the
temperature. Once the desired temperature is attained, press the "Set"
button. Doing this, the electronic control panel will memorize the setting. The temperature display will revert back to display the inside
temperature. It may take some time to reach the set temperature.
