Before the Wine Cooler 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 Wine Cooler, 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 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. 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.

shelves in place so that children may not easily 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.

Ø Before Using Your Wine Cooler
• Remove the exterior and interior packing.
• Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
• 2 Shelves (1 Large / 1 small)
• 1 Instruction Manual
• 1 warranty card
• Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Ø Installation of Your Wine Cooler
• This Wine Cooler is designed to be free standing installation only, and should not be recessed or
built-in (Fully recessed).
• Place your Wine Cooler on a surface that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded.
• Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the Wine Cooler, which allows the proper
air circulation to cool the heat sink.
• 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. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the unit not to perform properly.
• This Wine Cooler uses compressor refrigeration technology and is not designed for storage in hot
areas like garages, warehouses or outdoors since it is designed to operate at a maximum of 30
degrees below the ambient temperature.
• Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
• Plug the Wine Cooler into an exclusive, properly installed-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 an
authorized service center.
• After plugging the Wine Cooler into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2-3 hours before
placing any items in the compartment.
Ø 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 appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong 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.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This appliance requires a standard 120 Volt AC / 60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong. 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.
The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent
accidental injury.
The appliance 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
prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never
unplug the appliance by pulling 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.
Extension Cord
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do
not use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 120 volts and at
least 10 amperes.
Ø Setting the Temperature Control
• To control the internal temperature, adjust the control dial
according to the ambient temperature or purpose of use.
• The first time you turn the unit on, set the temperature control
to “5” (coldest setting).
• The temperature range to control is 4℃~10℃, and the relative
setting position is from “5” to “0”. After 24 to 48 hours, adjust
the temperature control to the setting that best suites your
needs. The setting of “3” should be correct for home or office
Wine Cooler use.
If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or turned off; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before
restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the Wine Cooler will not start.
Ø Storage Capacity
NOTE: You can place 15 standard bottles in this Wine Cooler.
Many bottles may differ in size and dimensions. As such the actual number of bottles you may be able
to store may vary. Bottle capacities are approximate maximums when storing traditional Bordeaux
750ml bottles and include bulk storage.
Ø Defrosting Your Wine Cooler
Defrost the Wine Cooler when the frost accumulated on the evaporator is about 5mm (1/5 inch) thick.
Set the thermostat dial to “0” position. Defrosting usually takes a few hours. After defrosting, return
the thermostat dial to the desired position. To defrost quickly remove Wines from the Wine Cooler
and leave the door open. Never use a knife or other metal instrument to scrape ice/frost from the
Ø Cleaning Your Wine Cooler

• 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.
• Wash the shelves with a mild detergent solution.
• The outside of the Wine Cooler should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
• Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the controls, or any
electrical parts.
