Defrosting, cleaning and maintenance
Automatic defrosting
The wine cooler is defrosted automatically.
Defrost water runs through a pipe and is
collected in a tray above the compressor
where the heat generated by the compressor causes it to evaporate. The defrost
water tray should be cleaned at intervals.
Before cleaning the appliance, unplug
it from the main supply. The cabinet is
best cleaned using warm water (max.
150°F) with a little mild detergent. Never
use cleaning agents that scour. Use a
soft cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry
thoroughly. The defrost water channel, in
which condensation from the evaporator
runs, is located at the bottom of the rear
inside wall of the cabinet and must be kept
clean. Add a few drops of disinfectant, e.g.
Rodalon, to the defrost water drain a couple
of times a year, and clean the drain using a
pipe cleaner or similar. Never use sharp or
pointed implements.
The sealing strip around the door must be
cleaned regularly to prevent discolouration
and prolong service life. Use clean water.
After cleaning the sealing strip, check that it
continues to provide a tight seal.
Dust collecting on the condenser on the
rear of the cabinet, the compressor and
in the compressor compartment is best
removed using a vacuum cleaner.
