Electrical Requirement
• Make sure there is a suitable power outlet (110-120 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.
• Allow 5 inch (15cm) of space on the rear and both sides of the wine cooler to
allow proper ventilation.
• It is recommended that you keep the wine refrigerator in a place where the
ambient temperature is below 78°F. In order to reach the lowest temperature
(lower zone), the best ambient temperature will be around 60-65°F.
• 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 corners of the wine cellar.
• This appliance is designed for free standing installation only.
Use of Extension Cords
• 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
• Before connecting the wine cellar 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.
• Once you have plugged the unit into an electrical outlet, let the unit run for at
least 30 minutes to acclimate before making any adjustments.
Temperature Adjustment
• The wine cellar can be set to any temperature between 54° and 66°F for the
upper zone and 46° and 66°F for the lower zone.
• It is recommended that you keep the wine refrigerator in a place where the
ambient temperature is below 78°F. In order to reach the lowest temperature
(lower zone), the best ambient temperature will be around 60-65°F.
Shelving
(Type and number of shelves will vary per model)
Your cabinet was designed to store a maximum number of bottles securely. We
recommend that you observe the tips below to optimize loading:
• Remove tape from shelves once unit is stable and ready for storage.
• Disperse the bottles evenly to avoid concentrating weight in one place. Bottles
must not touch the back of the cabinet to allow for proper air circulation.

Before You Start
The wine cellar should be placed in a location where the ambient temperature is
between 60-77° Fahrenheit. If the ambient temperature is above or below this
range, the performance of the unit may be affected. For example, placing your
unit in extreme cold or hot conditions may cause interior temperatures to
fluctuate.
8
Setting the Temperature Control

temporarily show the set temperature while making adjustments, then reverts
back after 5 seconds
1. Make sure power cord is connected to a properly grounded outlet.
2. Set the desired temperature by pushing the UP or DOWN button.
3. Temperatures increase or decrease 1°F with each push of the UP or
DOWN button.
4. Repeat with the other zone
NOTE: Temperatures may fluctuate depending on whether the interior light
is ON or OFF and depending on the position of the bottles.
Temperature Settings for Serving Wine
Although optimal storage temperature is generally regarded to be 53-57°F,
different varietals of wine require different service temperature settings. The
recommended temperature ranges for serving different varietals of wine are listed
below. Your wine cellar will indicate when you have set the Upper/Lower zones to
the below temperature ranges.

Proper Wine Cellar Care and Cleaning
Cleaning and Maintenance
Warning: To avoid electric shock always unplug your wine cellar before cleaning.
Ignoring this warning may result in death or injury.
Caution:
Before using cleaning products, always read and follow manufacturer’s
instructions and warnings to avoid personal injury or product damage.
General:
• Prepare a cleaning solution of 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda mixed
with warm water. Use sponge or soft cloth, dampened with the
cleaning solution, to wipe down your wine cellar.
• Rinse with clean warm water and dry with a soft cloth.
• Do not use harsh chemicals, abrasives, ammonia, chlorine bleach,
concentrated detergents, solvents or metal scouring pads. Some of
these chemicals may dissolve, damage and/or discolor your wine
cellar.
Door Gaskets:
• Clean door gaskets every three months according to general
instructions. Gaskets must be kept clean and pliable to assure a
proper seal.
• Petroleum jelly applied lightly on the hinge side of gaskets will keep
the gasket pliable and assure a good seal.
Power Interruptions
• Occasionally there may be power interruptions due to thunderstorms
or other causes. Remove the power cord from AC outlet when a power
outage occurs. When power has been restored, wait 3 to 5 minutes
then re-plug the power cord to AC outlet.
11
Vacation and Moving Care
• For long vacations or absences, unplug the wine cellar and clean the
wine cellar and door gaskets according to "General cleaning" section.
Leave doors open, so air can circulate inside.
• When moving always move the wine cellar vertically. Do not move
with the unit lying down.
Note: After moving, wait for 2 hours before plugging in the wine
cellar.
