Instruction manual
12 Standard Shelves
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 cellar.
DANGER: Risk of child becoming trapped in new cellar, old wine cellar/refrigeration unit, or large boxes.
Junked or abandoned appliances, boxes and other containers are still dangerous, even if they will “just sit in
the garage for a few days”.
Before you throw away your old wine cellar or refrigeration unit: 1. Take off the door. 2. Leave the
shelves in place so that children cannot climb inside.
Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.
Never clean appliance parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Do not store in the vicinity of any other appliance. Do not store near gasoline or any other flammable vapors.
The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
-Save these instructions-
Remove the exterior and interior packaging.
Before connecting the wine cellar 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.
General Installation Instructions
This appliance is designed for free standing installation.
Do not build-in or recess into closed cabinetry.
Place your wine cellar on a flat, solid floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To level
your wine cellar, adjust the front leveling leg at the bottom of the wine cellar.
When moving your wine cellar, please do not incline it more than 45 degrees.
Locate the wine cellar 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. Extreme
cold ambient temperatures may also cause the unit to perform improperly.
Avoid locating the unit in damp areas.
Plug the wine cellar into a dedicated (for this appliance only), properly installed and grounded wall outlet.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (grounding) prong from the power cord. Any
questions concerning power and/or electrical grounding should be directed to a certified electrician or
authorized product service center.
Built In Application.
Your wine cellar can be installed built into cabinetry. The minimum dimensions of the built in area are as follows:
24 ½” W X 26 ½” D X 34” H

different service temperature settings. The recommended temperature ranges for serving different varietals of
wine are listed below. Your wine cellar will indicate when you have set the Upper/Lower zones to the below
temperature ranges.
 Red Wines:
 White Wines
 Sparkling Wines
Your cabinet was designed to store a maximum number of bottles securely. We recommend that you observe the
tips below to optimize loading.
Remove tape from shelves once unit is stable and ready for storage.
Disperse the bottles evenly to avoid concentrating weight in one place. Bottles must not touch either the back of
the cabinet.
Make sure that the bottles are not all grouped together either at the top or bottom of the cabinet.
Only pull out one shelf at a time. Never attempt to pull more than one.
Maximum weight capacity per shelf is 55 lbs.
You can increase your wine cellar’s storage capacity by removing shelves and stacking bottles on top of one
another. Do not stack more than 3 rows of bottles per shelf.
Cleaning Your Wine Cellar.
Turn off the power, unplug the appliance, and remove all items including all shelves.
Wash the inside surfaces with a solution of warm water and baking soda (approximately 2 tablespoons of baking
soda for each quart of water.)
Wash the shelves with a mild detergent solution.
Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning area of the controls, or any electrical parts.
Wash the outside of the cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft
Vacuum the front grill and back of the unit twice yearly. Make sure the power is off before cleaning.
It is recommended to clean the unit completely inside and out once a year to maximize the longevity of the wine
Power Loss
Power failures that are corrected within a few hours should not affect the temperature of your appliance if you
minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need
to take other measures to protect your contents.
If the unit is unplugged, loses power, or is turned off, you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting. Attempting to
restart the wine cellar before this time has elapsed may prevent the wine cellar from starting.
Short vacations: You may leave the wine cellar powered on and unattended for absences of less than three (3)
Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for more than three weeks, remove all items and turn off the
appliance. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent mold growth, leave the door open slightly, blocking it
open if necessary.
Moving Your Wine Cellar
Remove all items.
Securely tape down all loose items (shelves) inside your appliance.
Turn the adjustable leg up to the base to avoid damage.
Tape the door shut.
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.
