ELECTRICAL CONNECTION Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is damaged, frayed or shows cracks or abrasions across its length, have it replaced at an authorized service center. For your protection, this unit is equipped with a 3-­‐conductor cord set that has a molded 3-­‐prong grounding-­‐type plug, and should be used in combination with a properly connected grounding-­‐type outlet. • Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded. • The cord should be secured behind the unit and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental injury. • When a standard 2-­‐pin wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-­‐pin wall outlet. • Never unplug the unit by pulling the power cord. To disconnect the appliance, always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the wall outlet. When moving the unit, be careful not to damage the power cord. • The unit should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet with a voltage rating that matches the rating label on the unit. • Do not pinch or kink the power supply cord. • Repair or replace all power cords that have become frayed or damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord. Extension Cord CAUTION: It is strongly recommended that you do not use an adapter or an extension cord with this unit. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Before Using Your Wine Cooler •

Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth before first use. Installation of Your Wine Cooler •
This appliance is designed for free standing or built-­‐in (full recessed) installation. •
Position the cooler in a dry and airy place. The recommended ambient temperature should be between 50° and 80°F. •
Locate the wine cooler away from direct sunlight and sources of heat such as a stove, heater, radiator, etc. Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating. Sources of heat may increase electric consumption. Extreme ambient temperatures may cause the unit to malfunction. •
Avoid locating the unit in moist areas. •
Place your cooler on a solid, level surface (other than carpet). This will ensure vibration and noise-­‐free operation. To level your wine cooler, adjust the front leveling legs at the base of the cooler. 4
Defrosting: 1. Your wine cooler will defrost every 8 hours for a period of approximately 30 minutes. Condensation will accumulate in the evaporator drip tray and will eventually evaporate. While your cooler is defrosting, the temperature displayed may be higher than the temperature set. 2. You may notice condensation on the glass exterior of your unit. If you notice an excessive amount of condensation on or around your unit, please relocate it to a less humid location. Drain: 1. Your wine cooler is equipped with a drain to release any excess liquid which may build up inside the unit. 2. We recommend routing the drain or water pipe into the drip tray. Please refer to the diagram shown on page 8 for instruction on drip tray installation. OPERATING YOUR WINE COOLER Recommended temperatures for wine storage: Red Wines: 15-­‐180C (59-­‐640F) Dry /White Wines 9-­‐140C (48-­‐570F) Sparkling Wine 5-­‐80C (41-­‐46 0F) The above temperatures may vary slightly depending on whether or not the interior bulb is ON or OFF or whether the bottles are located in the upper/middle or lower section. Operating your wine cooler as a two-­‐zone wine cooler Please place your wine cooler in a location where the ambient temperature is between 16-­‐35 / 60-­‐95°F. 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. ON/OFF Power To turn the appliance on or off, press the ON/OFF button for 3 seconds. Setting the temperature control Each cooling compartment of the Wine Cooler (left and right) is independently controlled. To set the temperature: 1. Connect the power cord to a properly grounded outlet. In the event of a power interruption, all previous temperature settings are automatically erased and each compartment will default to a preset temperature setting of 5℃ / 41°F for left compartment and 12℃ / 54°F for right compartment. 5
2. Set the desired cooling temperature by pressing the corresponding buttons for “set lower” program. Pressing the button once will decrease the temperature by 1 degree. The temperature selected will flash in the LED display for approximately 5 seconds and then revert back to display the temperature of the internal cooler. The left zone can be adjusted from 5℃ / 41°F to 10℃ / 50°F. The right zone’s temperature setting can be adjusted from 10℃/ 50°F to 18℃/ 64°F. When using your cooler we recommend you maintain 7 degrees difference between the left temperature zone and the right. 3. To view the “set” temperature, press flash in the LED display for 5 seconds. once. The “set” temperature will temporarily RUN This indicator light will illuminate when the cooling mode is currently in operation.

LOCK Press the “LOCK” button for 3 seconds to lock the control panel. To unlock the control panel, press the “LOCK” button again. To switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit readings, press the “LOCK” and “LIGHT” buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. NOTE: -­‐If the unit is unplugged, turned off or if there is a power failure, you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the wine cooler will not start working. -­‐When you use the wine cooler for the first time, or restart the wine cooler after having been shut off for a long time, there could be a few degrees variance between the temperature you select and the one indicated on the LED readout. This is normal and is due to the length of the inactivation time. Once the wine cooler is running for a few hours everything will return to normal. -­‐The top of the cooler has 6 bottle holes. The two on the left side are the low temperature zone. The four on the right side are the high temperature zone. Temperature may fluctuate depending on the ambient temperature and the seal of the wine cooler. 6
WALL INSTALLATION GUIDELINES Add on the adjustable feet/bumpers to the back of each screw on the rear of the wine cooler. This will ensure that your wine cooler has enough room between it and the wall to properly exhaust. Place the M8 boring crowns against the wall and use them as a guide for where to drill your holes. The diagram above shows the required space between each hole. Use the screws (part B) to affix the boring crowns to the wall. 7
Attach Part A to the back of the unit. Slide Part A into the boring crowns to affix your unit to the wall. Drip Tray Installation 1. Affix the mount for the drip tray to the bottom of the cooler as shown in the diagram above. 2. Route the water pipe into the drip tray. 3. Place the drip tray into the mount. 8
