IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or injury when
using your appliance, follow these basic precautions
 Read all instructions before using the wine cooler.
 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 cooler, be provided.
Use receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
 Never clean wine cooler parts with flammable fluids. These 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 cooler 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 manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
 Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
 Use two or more people to move and install the wine cooler.
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 61°F
(16°C) and below 95°F (35°C). This unit must be installed in an area protected from the
elements, such as wind, rain, water spray or drips.
 The wine cooler should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high
heat.
 The wine cooler 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.
 To avoid damaging the door gasket, be sure the door is fully open when pulling out
shelves.
 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 cooler to be leveled in order to work properly. You may need
to make several adjustments to level it.
1
 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 CFC- and HFC-free and contains a small quantity of Isobutane
(R600a) which is environmentally friendly, but flammable. It does not damage the
ozone layer, nor does it increase the greenhouse effect. Care must be taken during
transportation and setting up of the appliance that no parts of the cooling system are
damaged. Leaking coolant can ignite and may damage the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
-
Avoid open flames and anything that creates a spark,
Disconnect from the electrical power line,
Air the room in which the appliance is located for several minutes and
Contact the Service Department for advice.
 The more coolant there is in an appliance, the larger the room it should be installed in.
In the event of a leakage, if the appliance is in a small room, there is the danger of
combustible gases building up. For every ounce of coolant at least 325 cubic feet of
room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the rating
label. It is hazardous for anyone other than an Authorized Service Person to carry out
servicing or repairs to this appliance.
 Take serious care when handling, moving, and using the appliance to avoid either
damaging the refrigerant tubing or increasing the risk of a leak.
 Replacing component parts and servicing shall be done by factory authorized service
personnel so as to minimize the risk of possible ignition due to incorrect parts or
improper service.
DANGER!
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned appliances are still dangerous, even if they will “just sit in the garage a
few days”.
 Before you throw away your old wine cooler or any appliance: Remove the
door.
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 Cooler
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
Before connecting the wine cooler 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.
Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
This cooler is specifically designed for the storage of wine – do not use it for other
purposes.
Installation of Your Wine Cooler
This appliance is designed for free standing or built-in (fully recessed) installation.
If free standing, the unit should have at least 4” of clearance at both sides, at the
top and at the back to allow for adequate ventilation. If it is built-in, leave at least
3/16” at both sides, 1/16” at the top and 2” at the rear. Be sure that airflow under
the appliance is not blocked.
Place your wine cooler on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully
loaded. To level your wine cooler, adjust the front leveling legs at the bottom of
the unit.
Locate the wine cooler 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 cause the unit to perform improperly.
Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
Plug the wine cooler 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 or authorized products service center.
Reversing the Door Swing of Your Appliance
This appliance has the capability of the door opening from either the left or right
side. The unit is delivered to you with the door opening from the left side. Should
you desire to reverse the opening direction, please follow the diagrams and
instructions on the following pages.

OPERATING YOUR WINE COOLER
The wine cooler should be placed where the ambient temperature is between 61
and 95 degrees Fahrenheit (16-35°C). If the ambient temperature is above or
below this range, the performance of the unit may be affected. For example,
placing your unit in extremely cold or hot conditions may cause interior
temperatures to fluctuate.
Recommended Temperatures for Chilling Wine
Red Wines:
58-65°F (15-18°C)
Dry / White Wines 48-57°F (9-18°C)
Sparkling Wine
40-47°F (5-9°C)
The above temperatures may vary slightly depending on whether or not the
cabinet light is ON or OFF or whether the bottles are located on the upper or lower
section.
Dual Zone Control Panel
● RUN light: This indicates when the compressor is operating. When the
compressor is operating, the red light is on. When it stops, the light is off.
● UPPER CHAMBER: This displays the actual temperature of the upper
chamber. It can display temperatures from 0°C to 37°C (32°F to 99°F).
● LOWER CHAMBER: This displays the actual temperature of the lower
chamber. It can display temperatures from 0°C to 37°C (32°F to 99°F).
● °C/°F light: When the °C light is on, the temperature displayed is in Celsius.
When the °F light is on, the temperature is in Fahrenheit.
Operation of the Buttons
● SET Button of the upper chamber: This button sets the temperature in the
upper zone. Each time you press the button, the set temperature increases 1°C
or 1°F. The allowable setting range is between 5°C and 12°C (41°F to 54°F).
● SET Button of the lower chamber: This button sets the temperature in the
lower zone. Each time you press the button, the set temperature increases 1°C
or 1°F. The allowable setting range is between 12°C and 22°C (54°F to 72°F).
8
● LIGHT Button: This controls the LED cabinet light.
NOTE: Once the light is turned on, it will shut off automatically after 10 minutes.
● °C/°F Button: Converts the temperature display to Celsius or Fahrenheit.
● ON/OFF Button: This turns the unit on or off. Press once to start the unit; press
again to turn it off.
To view the SET temperature for either chamber at any time, press SET button
once. The SET temperature will flash in the LED display for 5 seconds, then the
display will show the internal temperature of the chamber once again.
Temperature memory function: In the event of a power interruption, all previous
temperature settings will be restored once the power returns.
NOTES:
1. This wine cooler has a delay protection feature. Once the unit has lost power
or is turned off, the compressor will start to work again only after a period of
3 to 5 minutes after power is restored.
2. When you use the wine cooler for the first time, or restart the wine cooler
after it has been shut off for a long time, there could be a few degrees
variation 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 has been running for a few hours, it should operate
normally.
Door Lock
This unit can be secured with a lock and key. The keys are located inside the
plastic bag that contains the Owner’s Manual. Insert the key into the lock at the
bottom of the door and turn it counter-clockwise to lock the door, making sure the
metal pin is engaged completely. To unlock the door, do the reverse. Remove the
key and put it in a secure location.
Defrosting
The wine cooler defrosts automatically during its operating cycle. The water
resulting from the defrosting is collected in a drip tray near the compressor at the
back where it is automatically evaporated. During the defrosting operation, the
displayed temperature may be higher than the set temperature.

To remove or change the position of a shelf
Follow the illustrations and instructions below if you wish to take out a shelf:
First remove all wine bottles from the shelf and pull it out as far as you can.
Simultaneously press down the left lever on the sliding shelf and press the right
one up, pulling the shelf out at the same time. Next, push up on the shelf to
release the front hook from the shelf bracket. Then just pull the shelf out.
To reinstall a shelf, follow these steps in reverse.
Storage of Wine Bottles
Your wine cooler was designed to store wine bottles in total security. Model
SWC902D can hold up to 76 standard wine bottles, and model SWC1380D can
hold up to 144.
We recommend that you observe the following tips to optimize loading:
 Spread your bottles out as evenly as possible over the shelves, so that weight
is not concentrated in one spot. Also make sure your bottles do not touch the
back of the cabinet or the step at the bottom of the lower chamber.
 Make sure that bottles are not all grouped together at the top or bottom of the
cabinet.
 Never stack more than one layer of bottles on a sliding shelf.
 Never try to pull out more than one sliding shelf at a time.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Wine Cooler
1. Turn off the power, unplug the appliance, and remove all items including
shelves and racks.
2. Wash the inside surfaces with a warm water and baking soda solution. The
solution should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
3. Wash the shelves with a mild detergent solution.
4. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning the area near the
controls, or any electrical parts.
5. Wash the outside cabinet with warm and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and
wipe dry with a clean soft cloth. Clean the stainless steel trim with a product
specifically designed for this use.
Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the
temperature of your appliance if you minimize the number of times the door is
opened. If power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need to take
the proper steps to protect the contents of your wine cooler.
Vacations
Leave the wine cooler operating during vacations of less then three weeks. For
periods longer than this, turn the wine cooler off and leave the door slightly ajar to
prevent odor from building inside the appliance.
Transporting your Wine Cooler
If you need to move your wine cooler once the box has been discarded:
1. Securely tape down all loose items (shelves) inside your appliance.
2. Turn the adjustable legs up to the base to avoid damage.
3. Tape the door shut.
4. Be sure the appliance stays secure in the upright position during transportation.
Also protect the outside of the appliance with a blanket or similar item.
Energy-saving Tip
The wine cooler should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from
heat- producing appliances, and out of the direct sunlight.
