Safety
Disposal of Old Appliance
DANGER!
Risk of child entrapment.
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of
the past.
Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous –
even if they will sit for “just a few days.”
If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please
follow these instructions to help prevent accidents.
Before you discard old appliances:
• Remove the doors.
R600a Refrigerant
WARNING!
The refrigerant R600a contained within the
appliance is environmentally friendly, but
flammable. Leaking refrigerant can ignite.
To prevent possible ignition, follow the
warnings below:
• Keep ventilation openings, in
the appliance enclosure or in
the built-in structure, clear of
obstruction.
• Leave the shelves in place so that children
may not easily climb inside.
• Cut off the power cable from the discarded
appliance. Discard separately from the
appliance.
• Be sure to follow your local requirements for
disposal of appliances.
Contact the trash collection agency in
your area for additional information.
Disposal of this Appliance
This appliance contains flammable gases
within the refrigeration circuit and insulation
foam.
• Do not use mechanical devices or other
means to accelerate the defrosting process,
other than those recommended by the
manufacturer.
• Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
• Any repairs and work on the appliance
should only be performed by the customer
service department.
• Do not use electrical appliances inside the
wine cooler compartment, unless they are of

Safety
Important Safety Information
Electrical Safety
• To prevent injury to you or damage to the unit,
the appliance should be unpacked and set up by
two people.
Connect this appliance to a 15 amp or 20 amp, 110120 VAC, circuit which is grounded and protected by a
circuit breaker or fuse.
• If the appliance is damaged on delivery, contact
the supplier immediately before connecting it to
the power source.
We recommend using a dedicated circuit for this appliance to prevent circuit overload and the chance of
interruption to the appliance.
• To guarantee safe operation, ensure that the
appliance is set up and connected as described
in this manual.
• Disconnect the appliance from the power source
if a fault occurs. Pull out the plug, turn off or disable the power source.
• When disconnecting the appliance, always pull it
out by the plug; never pull on the cable.
• Any repairs and work on the appliance should
only be performed by the customer service
department. Unauthorized work may be dangerous to the user. The power source cable should
only be changed or replaced by the customer
service department.
• Do not store explosives or sprays using combustible propellants such as butane, propane,
pentane, etc. in the appliance. Electrical components might cause leaking gas to ignite. You can
identify such sprays by the printed contents or a
flame symbol.
• To prevent possible injury due to an electrical
shock, be sure to disconnect the power cord or
turn off the circuit breaker before cleaning the
appliance.
• To avoid injury or damage to the appliance, do
not use steam cleaning equipment to clean the
appliance.
• Do not operate the appliance in the presence of
explosive fumes.
• In the event of a power outage, open the door
as infrequently as possible.
• To protect the appliance from possible damage,
allow it to stand 1/2 to 1 hour in place before
turning on the electricity. This allows the refrigerant and system lubrication to reach equilibrium.
4
This appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) polarized plug for your protection against possible
shock hazards.
Where a two-prong wall receptacle is encountered,
contact a qualified electrician and have it replaced with
a properly grounded three-prong receptacle in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING!
Electrocution hazard.
Electrical grounding required.
• Do not remove the round grounding
prong from the plug.
• Do not use extension cords or
ungrounded (two-prong) adapters.
• Do not use a power cord that is frayed or
damaged.
•
Do not use a power strip.

Features
The Right Environment for Your Wines
A grapevine is an extremely sensitive plant. From the time it is planted until its maturing period and the time the
grapes are harvested and the wine is made, it is dependent on three factors: light, air humidity and ambient temperature.
This sensitivity continues even after the wine is bottled.
To allow the flavor of the wine to fully develop or to preserve the excellent aroma, the wine has to be stored at optimal
conditions.
Your wine cooler offers the best conditions for this.

Wine Cooler Compartment
Air Exchange with Activated
Charcoal Filter
The way in which wines continue to age depends on the
ambient conditions.
The quality of the air is
therefore decisive for preserving the wine.
We recommend that you
replace the filter illustrated
here once a year. Filters can
be obtained from your dealer.
Pull-out Shelves
The pull-out shelves
allow bottles of wine to
be viewed and removed
more easily.

The storage pattern shown above is only
possible with the specified bottle size.
Taller bottles must be stored crossways
since otherwise the bottles will collide with
the appliance door.
