IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance.
Always read and obey all safety messages.
This is the Safety Alert Symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential
hazards that can kill or injure you and others. All safety messages will
follow the Safety Alert Symbol and either the words ”DANGER” or
“WARNING”.
DANGER means that failure to heed this
safety statement may result in severe
personal injury or death.
WARNING means that failure to heed
this safety statement may result in
extensive product damage, serious
personal injury, or death.
Safety messages will alert you to what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance
of injury, and let you know what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
Before the wine cellar is used, it must be properly positioned and installed
as described in this manual, so read the manual carefully. To reduce the
risk of fire, electrical shock or injury when using the appliance, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
 Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Do not remove grounding prong, do not use an adapter,
and do not use an extension cord.
 It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your wine cellar, be provided. Use
receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
 Never clean wine cellar parts with flammable fluids. These fumes can create a fire hazard or
explosion. And do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the
vicinity of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
 Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, make sure the power line of the
unit is disconnected.
 Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
 Unplug the wine cellar or disconnect the power before cleaning or servicing. Failure to do so
can result in electrical shock or death.
 Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your appliance unless it is specifically
recommended in this material. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
1
 Use two or more people to move and install the wine cellar. Failure to do so can result in back
or other injury.
 To ensure proper ventilation for your appliance, the front of the unit must be completely
unobstructed. Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above 60°F (16°C) and below
90°F (32°C). This unit must be installed in an area protected from the elements, such as wind,
rain, water spray or drips.
 The wine cellar should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.
 The wine cellar must be installed with all electrical connections in accordance with state and
local codes. A standard electrical supply (115V AC only, 60 Hz), properly grounded in
accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required.
 Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord of the appliance.
 The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amps.
 It is important for the wine cellar to be leveled in order to work properly. You may need to
make several adjustments to level it.
 Never allow children to operate, play with or crawl inside the wine cellar.
 Although the unit has been tested at the factory, due to transit and storage, you should clean
the appliance before use.
 Do not use solvent-based cleaning agents or abrasives on the interior. These cleaners may
damage or discolor the interior.
 Do not use this apparatus for other than residential purposes.
 THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE BY YOUNG CHILDREN OR INFIRM
PERSONS UNLESS THEY HAVE BEEN ADEQUATELY SUPERVISED BY A RESPONSIBLE
PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY CAN USE THE APPLIANCE SAFELY. YOUNG
CHILDREN SHOULD BE SUPERVISED TO ENSURE THAT THEY DO NOT PLAY WITH
THE APPLIANCE.
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 “just sit in the garage a few days.”
 Before you throw away your old refrigerator:
 Take off the doors.
 Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
 Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.

Installation Instructions
Before Using Your Wine Cellar:
 Remove the exterior and interior packing.
 Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
 6 chrome shelves
 2 chrome racks
 2 keys
 Instruction manual
 Before connecting the unit to the power source, let it stand for approximately 2
hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from
handling during transportation.
 Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installing the Wine Cellar:
 Place your unit on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded.
To level your unit, adjust the leveling leg at the bottom.
 Model SWC525L is designed to be free-standing only, and should not be
recessed or built in (fully recessed). On the other hand, model SWC525LBI is
specifically designed to be built in.
 Model SWC525L: Allow 5 inches of space at the back, sides and top of the unit,
which will allow the proper air circulation to cool the compressor.
 Model SWC525LBI: This built-in model is designed to be installed under the
counter in a 21-inch opening. When installing, provide the following clearances to
ensure the best operation and proper ventilation: 1/4” on both sides, 2” at the rear

and 1/16” at the top. Be sure that airflow under the appliance is not blocked. If the
appliance is going to be placed against a wall, if possible, leave extra space on
the hinge side so the door can open wider than its width (to make it easier to
remove wire racks).
Locate the unit away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater,
radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may
increase electrical consumption. Extremely cold ambient temperatures may also
affect the unit's performance.
Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
Plug the unit into an exclusive, properly installed and grounded wall outlet. Do not
under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power
cord. Any questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed
toward a certified electrician or authorized service center.
After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2 to
3 hours before placing items in the storage compartment.
Electrical Connection:
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power
cord is damaged, have it replaced by an authorized service center.
This unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this unit is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with a standard three-prong wall
outlet to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.
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.
This unit requires a standard 115-volt AC/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong
ground. Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make
sure the outlet is properly grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is
encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
To prevent accidental injury, the cord should be secured behind the unit and not left
exposed or dangling.
The unit should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has
a voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the
best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits that could
cause a fire hazard from overheated wires. Never unplug the unit by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
Repair or replace immediately any power cord that has become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length
or at either end. When moving the unit, be careful not to damage the power cord.
Extension Cord:
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have
a qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.
