Warning:
Improper use of the grounded
plug can result in the risk of electrical
shock. If the power cord is damaged,
have it replaced by a qualified
electrician or an authorized service
center.
This appliance should be properly
grounded for your safety. The power
cord is equipped with a three-prong
plug which mates with standard threeprong wall outlets to minimize the
possibility of electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or
remove the third (ground) prong from
the power cord supplied.
All electrical work should be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person in accordance with local and
national safety regulations.
Check that the voltage marked on
the product corresponds with your
supply voltage.
This appliance requires a standard
115/120V AC ~ 60Hz three-prong
grounded electrical outlet. 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
to have it replaced with a properly
grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The appliance must not be used with a
plug adapter as these can cause damage
to the appliance’s electronic unit.
The cord should be placed securely
7
behind the appliance and should
not be allowed to lie or hang
unprotected.
The appliance should always be

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
overheating. Never unplug the
appliance by pulling on the power
cord. Always grip the plug firmly and
pull straight out from the receptacle.
Repair or replace immediately all
power cords that have 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
appliance, be careful not to damage
the power cord.
Warning:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE GROUNDED.
EXTENSION CORD
Because of potential safety hazards
under certain condition, it is strongly
recommended that you do not use
an extension cord with this

appliance.
The temperature display will flash if
- A different temperature is being set,
- The temperature in the zone deviates
by more than 9F° (5C°) from the set
temperature.
The flashing of the temperature display
ensures that the temperature can not
rise or fall unnoticed and damage the
wine.
TEMPERATURE MEMORY FUNCTION
In the event of a power interruption
(power surge, breaker switch, etc.), the
unit can remember the previous
temperature settings, and when the
power is recovered, the cabinet
temperature will return to the same
temperature setting as before the power
went off.
TEMPERATURE ALARM
An alarm will sound if the temperature in
one of the zones rises or falls outside the
temperature range. The relevant
temperature display will flash at the
same time.
The temperature the appliance is set at
determines the temperature the
12
appliance recognizes as being too
warm or too cool.
The alarm will sound and the
temperature display will flash:
- When you switch the appliance
on, if the temperature inside the
appliance is very different from
the set temperature.
- When there has been a lengthy
interruption to the power supply.
- When too many items have been
put into the unit at one time.
- When the door has not been
closed tightly.
DOOR ALARM
If the door has been left open for
more than 60 seconds, the alarm
will sound.
Once the set temperature has
been reached in the appliance,
the alarm stops and the relevant
temperature display stops
flashing. However, if the noise
disturbs you, you can switch the
alarm off before this if you wish
by pressing the Power key once.
The alarm will stop. The relevant
temperature display continues to
flash until the set temperature

operations will still take place.
mark toggles between 2 modes of
operation for the internal lights:
functional (default) mode and
showcase mode. If you are in
functional (default) mode, the lights
will turn on only when the door is
open. If you are in showcase mode,
the lights will be on whether or not
the door is open.
To initiate Sabbath mode, press
the Power and Light keys at the
same time for at least 5 seconds.
The indicator light will flash four
times and confirm the Sabbath
mode is ON.
Sabbath mode can be exited by
repeating the above process. The
Sabbath Mode will automatically
turn off after 96 hours.
DYNAMIC CLIMATE / SILENT MODE
The Dynamic Climate mode enables
the relative humidity inside the unit
and the temperature to be distributed
evenly around the interior so you can
store all your wine under exactly the
same excellent conditions. If you
would like to use the unit to store
wine long term, the Dynamic Climate
mode is a must. This will create a
continuous climate in the cabinet
which imitates that of a wine cellar.
In the Dynamic Climate mode, the
interior fan circulates the inside air
evenly even after the set temperature
is reached. Dynamic Climate mode is
the factory preset mode, creating a
soft whirring sound. To change to
Silent mode, touch and hold the Up
key for approximately five seconds.
The wine cooler will beep three times
to confirm Silent mode is on. To
change back to Dynamic Climate
mode, touch and hold the Down key
for approximately five seconds. The
wine cooler will beep five times to
confirm Dynamic Climate mode is on.
CABINET SHELVES
IMPORTANT - Do not cover any
part of the shelves with
aluminum foil or any other
material that will prevent
adequate air circulation within
the cabinet.
• To prevent damaging the door
gasket, make sure the door is
fully open when pulling shelves
out of the rail compartment.
• For easy access to the stored
bottles, pull the shelves out
approximately 1/3. The shelves
are designed with an
emergency stop to prevent
them being removed too far
when loaded.
13
DEFROSTING / HUMIDITY /
VENTILATION
Your wine cellar is designed with an
automatic defrost system. During “Offcycle”, the evaporator behind the rear
wall of the unit defrosts automatically.
The condensate collects in the drain
trough behind the rear wall of the
unit, and flows through the drainage
hole into the drip tray by/above the
compressor. The heat is transferred
from the discharge pipe or compressor
and evaporates any condensation that
has collected in the tray. Part of the
remaining water is collected within the
wine cellar for humidity purposes.
This system enables the creation of
the correct humidity level inside your
wine cellar required by natural cork to
maintain a long-lasting seal.
The wine cellar is not totally sealed: fresh
air admission is permitted through the
drainpipe. Air is circulated through the
cellar by means of a fan/fans and the
slotted shelves.
NOTE: However, frost may accumulate
on the evaporator if the unit is
repeatedly opened in a high heat or
high humidity location. If this frost
pattern does not clear within 24 hours,
your unit will require manual
defrosting.
BOTTLE STORAGE
Bottles differ in size and dimensions. As
such, the actual number of bottles you
may be able to store can vary.
Stated bottle capacities are approximate
14
maximums when storing traditional
Bordeaux 750-ml bottles and
include bulk storage.
You may load your wine bottles in
single row or by stacking while
taking note of the following: if you
do not have enough bottles to fill
your wine cellar, it is better to
distribute the load throughout the
wine cellar so as to avoid “all on
top” or “all below” type loads.
Remove or relocate adjustable
wooden shelves to accommodate
larger type of bottles or increase
the capacity of the cellar by stacking
the bottles up when necessary. (See
“Removing Shelves”.)
• Keep small gaps between the
walls and the bottles to allow air
to circulate. As in an underground
cellar, air circulation is important
to prevent the growth of mold
and to achieve a more
homogeneous temperature
within the cellar.
• To facilitate air circulation, do not
overload your wine cellar.
• Avoid obstructing the internal
fans (located inside on the back
panel of the wine cellar).
• To prevent bottles from falling,
do not try to slide the shelves
outward beyond the fixed
position.
• Do not pull out more than one
loaded shelf at a time as this may
cause the wine cellar to tilt
forward if not properly installed.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ABOUT TEMPERATURE
Your wine cellar has been designed
to guarantee optimum conditions
for storing and/or serving your
wines.
Fine wines require long and gentle
development and need specific
conditions in which to reach their
full potential.
All wines mature at the same
temperature, which is a constant
temperature set between 11°C to
14°C. Only the temperature of
“dégustation” (wine appreciation)
varies according to the type of wine
(see “Wine Serving Temperature
Chart” on the previous page). This
being said and as it is for natural
cellars used by wine producers for
long period of storage, it is not the
exact temperature that is
important, but its consistency. In
other words, as long as the
temperature of your wine cellar is
constant (between 11°C to 14°C, or
52°F to 57°F) your wines will be
stored under perfect conditions.
Not all wines will improve over the
years. Some should be consumed at
an early stage (2 to 3 years) while
others have tremendous ageing
capability (50 years and over). All
wines have a peak of maturity.
Check with your wine merchant to
get the relevant information.
NOTES ON WINE STORAGE
• Only store wine in unopened bottles.
Always lay bottles on their side for
storage.
• Do not overload the cabinet.
• Do not open the door unless
necessary.
• Do not cover shelves with aluminum
foil or any other shelf material which
may prevent air circulation.
• If the wine cooler is to be left empty
for long periods, unplug the appliance
and after careful cleaning, leave the
door ajar to allow air to circulate
inside the cabinet in order to reduce
the possible formation of
condensation, mold or odors.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Warning: Failure to unplug the appliance
during service and cleaning could result
in electrical shock or other personal
injury.
REMOVING SHELVES
• To remove any of the shelves from the
rail compartment, move the shelf to
the position where the notch of the
wooden shelf is exactly under the
plastic post and then lift it up and out.
• In order to replace the shelf, repeat
the steps described above in reverse.
And make sure to engage the shelves
with the small pegs of the extended
rails when the model is equipped with
a roller system.
CLEANING YOUR WINE CELLAR
• Turn off the power, unplug the
appliance and remove all items,
including shelves/racks.
• Wash the inside surfaces with a warm
water and baking soda solution. The
solution should be about 2
tablespoons of baking soda to a pint
of water.
• Wash the shelves with a mild
detergent solution.
• Wring excess water out of the
sponge or cloth when cleaning any
17
area of the controls.
• Wash the outside cabinet with
warm water and mild liquid
detergent. Rinse well and wipe
dry with a clean soft cloth.
• Do not clean the stainless
steel with steel wool pads.
Instead, use an all-in-one
stainless steel cleaner to
clean the stainless steel.
Always wipe in the
direction of the grain.
POWER FAILURE
• In the event of a power
interruption, all previous
temperature settings are
automatically memorized. If
power is interrupted (power
surge, breaker switch, etc.)
and then powered up again,
the unit will operate with the
last temperature set-point.
• 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 the power
is going to be off for a longer
period of time, you need to
take the proper steps to
protect the contents.
Note: Irrespective of the cause,
if you notice either abnormal
temperature or humidity
levels inside your wine cellar,
be reassured that only long
than necessary.
• Store contents in an organized
way.
• To allow air to circulate, do
not overfill the appliance.
and frequent exposure to these
abnormal conditions can cause a
detrimental effect on your wines.
VACATION TIME
• Short holidays: Leave the Wine
Cellar in operation for holidays
of less than three weeks.
• Long absences: If the appliance will
not be used for several months,
remove all items, turn off the
appliance and unplug. Clean and dry
the interior thoroughly. To prevent
odor and 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.
• 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.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
• The wine cellar should be located in
the coolest area of the room, away
from heat-producing appliances and
out of the direct sunlight.
• Ensure that the unit is adequately
ventilated. Never cover air vents.
Clean dust and dirt from the
condenser at regular intervals.
• Do not keep the door open longer
