
Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong
from the power cord supplied, do not use an adapter, and do not use an extension cord.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your appliance be used. Do not use outlets that can be
turned off by a switch or pull chain.
Never clean appliance parts with flammable fluids 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.
Unplug the appliance or disconnect 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.
Use two or more people to move and install appliance. 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 element, such as wind, rain, water spray or drips.
The appliance should not be located next to ovens, grills or other high heat sources or in areas of extreme cold.
The appliance must be installed in accordance with state and local codes. A standard electrical supply (115 V AC
only, 60 Hz), properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local ordinances is required.
Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord of appliance.
The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amperes.
It is important for the appliance 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 appliance. Child entrapment and suffocation are
not just problems of the past, junked or abandoned appliances are still dangerous. When no longer using your
old wine cellar, take off the door and leave the shelves in place so that children may not climb inside easily.
Do not use solvent-based cleansers or abrasives on the interior as they may damage or discolor the interior.
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 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.
If the appliance is going to be used in an area that is prone to power surges/outages, it is suggested that you use
a power surge protector. The surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect
the appliance it is connected to. Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered
defect and will void your product warranty.
The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental injury.
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 with cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the appliance, be
careful not to damage the power cord.
Do not use this apparatus for other than its intended purpose.
California Proposition 65 Warning: This product contains a chemical or chemicals known to the State of
California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Failure to heed these safety warnings may result in extensive product damage, serious personal injury, or death.

Installation Instructions
BEFORE USE:
 Remove the exterior and interior packaging.
 Before connecting the unit 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.
 Install handles.
 This appliance is designed for free standing or built-in (fully recessed) installation.
 Place the unit on a flat, solid floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To level the
appliance, adjust the front leveling leg at the bottom of the unit.
 When moving your wine cellar, please do not incline it more than 45 degrees.
 Locate the appliance 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. The optimal ambient temperature range is 32°F 100°F.
 Avoid locating the unit in damp areas.
 Plug the wine cellar 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 electrical grounding should be directed to a certified electrician or authorized products service center.
 After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 3 to 4 hours before placing wine
bottles in the appliance.
Handle Installation
Step 1: Remove the box containing the handle and screws from the wine cellar.
Step 2: Pull out a bit of the rubber gasket from the back side of the holes.
Step 3: Insert the screws through the holes and connect with the handle.

Anchoring to the Wall
1. On the back of the appliance, attach brackets in the same zones shown using adhesive straps. Mark and drill
pilot holes for the screws about 8mm into the appliance. Then use a screwdriver to tighten the screws all the
way into the appliance.
2. Position the appliance in the desired location. Locate wall studs behind the appliance and mark the location
where the bracket on the back of the appliance lines up with a stud. Move the appliance away from the wall
and position bracket on the mark. Mark and drill pilot holes into the center of the stud with a 3/32” drill bit.
Attach a bracket to the stud with the long screws provided.
3. Move the appliance into its final position, taking care to line up the wall bracket close enough to the bracket on
the back of the appliance to strap them together. Thread a strap through the brackets as shown in the
illustration. Tighten the straps until snug. Do not overtighten.
CAUTION: This product is not intended to be a substitute for proper supervision. Manufacturer assumes no liability for
improper installation or excessive loads placed on screws, brackets, or straps.
Straps should be periodically adjusted, tested, and replaced.

Operation Instructions
The wine cellar should be placed in an area where the ambient temperature is between 32-100 degrees Fahrenheit. If
the ambient temperature is above or below this range, the performance of the unit may be affected. For example,
placing your unit in extreme cold or hot conditions may cause the interior temperatures to fluctuate.
Your Allavino Wine Cellar includes an operating panel on the front. The operating panel includes several features to
operate and control the temperature of the wine refrigerator, including:
ON/OFF - Turns the unit on or off
TEMP SET - Displays the desired temperature on an LED display
UP/DOWN Buttons – Increases or decreases the temperature in 1 degree increments
DISPLAY – Displays the temperature inside of the unit
°C / °F – Indicates whether the displayed temperature is in Celsius and Fahrenheit
°C / °F Button – Toggles the displayed temperature between Celsius and Fahrenheit
LIGHT - Turns the interior light on or off
RED/WHITE/SPARKLE – Indicates whether the set temperature is ideal for storing mostly red, white, or sparkling wines
If you are going on vacation, you may leave the wine cellar operating during vacations of less than three weeks. If the
appliance will not be used for several months, you should 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.
Setting Temperature
This Allavino Wine Cellar has a wide enough temperature range to store red, white, or sparkling wine, depending on
your preference. Different varietals of wine require different temperature settings. Red wine is generally stored
between 50 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit, while white wines are stored between 40 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. White
wine can be stored at red wine temperatures for a short period of time (less than three months), and flash chilled before
serving.
You can set the temperature as you desire by touching the UP or DOWN button. When you touch the buttons for the
first time, the LED readout will show the original temperature set at the manufacturing facility. Each push of the button
will adjust the temperature by one degree in the desired direction. Please be aware that the desired temperatures may
fluctuate depending on whether the interior light is ON or OFF and depending on the orientation of the bottles.
PLEASE NOTE:
 In the event of a power interruption, all previous temperature settings will be automatically saved and each
compartment will return to the previous temperature setting.
 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 it from starting.
 When you use the wine cellar for the first time or restart the wine cellar after having been shut off for a long
time, there will be a few degrees variance between the temperature you select and the one indicated on the
LED readout for the first few hours of operation. After a few hours of operation, the temperature will normalize
to the displayed temperature.

Racking Configuration
Disperse your bottles evenly throughout the unit so as not to concentrate weight in any one area. This also helps to
provide an even temperature range throughout the unit. Make sure that bottles are not all grouped together either at
the top or bottom of the cabinet. Never try to pull out more than one sliding shelf at a time as it can cause the appliance
to tip forward.
The shelves are removable to help with cleaning and maintenance. To remove a shelf, pull it out as far as you can.
There are levers on each side of the shelf near the rollers. Lift the lever on the left hand side and push down on the
lever on the right hand side to remove the shelf from the tracks.
The Allavino Wine Cellar has 8 shelves that can hold up to 11 bottles each and 2 shelves that can hold up to 20 bottles
each for a maximum bottle capacity of 128 bottles. The maximum capacity can be reached with many different bottle
sizes and is only affected when adding in larger Pinot or Champagne bottles.
Care and Maintenance
Cleaning your wine cellar:
 Turn off the power, unplug the appliance, and remove all items.
 Wash the inside surfaces with 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.
 Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning area of the controls, or any electrical parts.
 Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
 Dust 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 yearly to maximize the longevity of the product.
Moving your wine cellar:
 Remove all bottles and any other items you may have inside the unit.
 Securely tape down all loose items (shelves) inside your appliance and tape the door shut.
 Turn the adjustable leg up to the base to avoid damage.
 Be sure the appliance stays secure in the upright position during transportation.
 Protect the outside of the appliance with a blanket or similar item.
