Electrical connection

 Risk of electric shock!

The wine conditioning unit must only be switched on when it has been installed in accordance with the installation instructions.

Ground the wine conditioning unit.

The wine conditioning unit must not be grounded via a gas pipe.

If in doubt, have a suitably qualified and experienced electrician check that the wine conditioning unit complies with relevant regulations.

Do not install a fuse into neutral current or grounding electrical circuit.

Do not use an extension cord or power bar.

Do not use a frayed or damaged power cord.

 Risk of electric shock!

For protection against electric shock, this wine conditioning unit is equipped with a pole-free plug which is protected against reverse polarity.

The plug must be grounded in the usual way.

Do not remove the round grounding connector pin from the plug.

Use only a grounded plug adapter.

Wait for 1 hour after installation before plugging the wine conditioning unit into the power supply. This allows coolant and refrigerator oil to settle in accordance with regulations.

Ensure that the voltage of the power supply corresponds to the connection voltage of the wine conditioning unit. A power supply of 110–120 V, 60 Hz and

10 –16 Amps, which is protected by a power switch or a fuse, is required to operate the wine conditioning unit.

The manufacturer recommends operating the wine conditioning unit on a separate circuit to avoid overloading the electrical circuit.

All relevant legal electrical, fire, and building regulations must be observed when installing the outlet and/or the wine conditioning unit.

In certain countries, wine conditioning units are required to be connected to the electrical supply via a wall-mounted

ON/OFF switch.

To avoid the risk of fire, electric shock, or other injuries, the wine conditioning unit must be installed and connected by a suitably qualified electrician in accordance with all relevant local and national regulations and standards, including fire prevention.

The outlet must be easily accessible so that the wine conditioning unit can be quickly disconnected from the electrical supply in case of an emergency.

50

*INSTALLATION*

Installation

If the outlet is no longer accessible after installation, an additional means of disconnection must be provided for all poles. Suitable means of disconnection include switches with an all-pole contact gap of at least 1/8" (3 mm). These can be circuit breakers, fuses, and relays.

The plug and power cord must not come into contact with the back of the wine conditioning unit as vibrations can cause damage to these components.

This could result in a short circuit.

Do not plug in other appliances behind the wine conditioning unit.

Do not connect the wine conditioning unit to a stand-alone inverter such as those used with an autonomous energy source; for example, solar power .

When the wine conditioning unit is switched on, power surges could result in a safety switch-off. The electronic unit could be damaged. The wine conditioning unit must not be used with what are known as energy-saving devices either. These reduce the amount of energy supplied to the unit, causing it to overheat.

If the power cord needs to be replaced, this must be done by a qualified technician.

Connecting the wine storage unit

 Insert the electrical plug into the back of the wine storage unit.

Make sure that the electrical plug has clicked into position correctly.

 Insert the wine storage unit’s plug into the electrical socket.

77

The ideal temperature and humidity

Wine continues to mature depending on the surrounding conditions. The length of time for which wine can be kept in good condition will therefore depend not only on the temperature but also on the air quality.

The wine conditioning unit with its constant ideal temperature, increased air humidity and odor-free atmosphere offers the perfect conditions for storing your wine.

The wine conditioning unit also guarantees a vibration-free environment (in contrast to a refrigerator) so that the maturing process is not disturbed.

Temperature

Wine can be stored at a temperature between 42° and 64°F (6° and 18°C). If you are storing white and red wines together, select a temperature between

53° and 57°F (12° and 14°C). This is suitable for both white and red wines.

Red wine should be taken out of the wine conditioning unit and opened at least two hours before drinking to allow it to breathe and develop its aroma.

At too high a temperature (over 72°F /

22°C), wine matures too quickly, which prevents the aromas from developing further. Wine cannot mature fully at too low a temperature (below 41°F / 5°C).

Fluctuations in temperature put wine under stress and interrupt the maturing process. It is therefore very important to maintain a constant temperature.

Type of wine

Light, fruity red wines:

Full-bodied red wines:

Rosé wines:

Recommended drinking temperature

57° to 61°F (14° to 16°C)

64°F (18°C)

Delicate, aromatic white wines:

Full-bodied or sweet white wines:

Champagne, sparkling white wines:

46° to 50°F (8° to

10°C)

46° to 54°F (8° to

12°C)

46° to +57°F (12° to 14°C)

43° to 50°F (6° to

10°C)

Tip: Store the wine 1° or 2° cooler than the recommended drinking temperature as it warms up a little when poured into the glass.

Tip: Full-bodied reds should be opened for 2-3 hours before drinking to allow it to breathe and develop its aroma.

Tip: We recommend removing the oxygen from opened bottles of wine to avoid loss of aroma and taste, as well as spoiling. Special devices (a wine pump with bottle stopper, for example) create a vacuum by extracting the air.

78

The ideal temperature and humidity

Isolator panels for thermal separation

The wine conditioning unit has two fixed isolator panels that divide the interior into three zones, which can be conditioned in different ways. This means that you can store up to three different types of wine at the same time – for example, red wine, white wine, and champagne.

Setting the temperature

 Touch the   sensor control to set the temperature.

The previously set temperatures for the

3 wine conditioning zones are displayed.

 Use the   and   sensor controls to select the wine conditioning zone for which you want to adjust the temperature and select OK to confirm your selection.

 Use the   and   sensor controls to set the temperature. Keeping your finger on the sensor control changes the temperature continuously.

 Confirm the temperature setting with

OK or wait approx. 8 seconds after the last touch of the sensor. This temperature will be automatically adopted.

Tip: The new temperature setting can also be confirmed and adopted by closing the appliance door.

79

The ideal temperature and humidity

The temperature display always shows the required temperature.

If you have adjusted the temperature, wait for approx. 6 hours if the wine conditioning unit is not very full and for approx. 24 hours if the wine conditioning unit is full before checking the temperature display. It will take this long for an accurate reading to be given.

 If, after this time, the temperature is still too high or too low, adjust it again.

Temperature range

In all three zones, it is possible to set temperatures between 41°F and 68°F

(5°C and 20°C).

Humidity

In most refrigerators the humidity is too low for wine and therefore a refrigerator is not suitable for wine conditioning.

Higher humidity levels are necessary when storing wine to moisturize natural corks from the outside. When the humidity is too low the natural corks dry out and the bottle is no longer tightly sealed. For this reason wine bottles should always be stored horizontally to ensure that natural corks are also moisturized from the inside. If air gets into the bottle, this will have a negative impact on the wine!

Tip: Humidity levels can be set separately for each wine conditioning zone.

Always increase the humidity level in a wine conditioning zone whenever you are using it to store wine bottles sealed with natural corks.

 Risk of damage caused by excess moisture

This will lead to condensation on the interior walls, which can cause corrosion damage.

Do not introduce additional moisture into the air, e.g., by placing a dish of water inside the wine conditioning unit.

Increasing the humidity  

If you have set a higher level of humidity, the fans will switch on automatically. This will distribute the humidity and the temperature evenly around the wine conditioning unit so that you can store all your wine under the same excellent conditions. The fans switch off automatically when the appliance door is opened and remain switched off for as long as it is kept open.

 Touch the   sensor control to set the temperature.

 Use the   and   sensor controls to select the wine conditioning zone for which you want to increase the humidity and select OK to confirm your selection.

 Touch the   button.

The   button will then be highlighted in color.

 Confirm your selection with OK or wait approx. 8 seconds after touching the button for the last time. The setting will be automatically adopted.

The humidity increases in the selected wine conditioning zone.

 Touch the OK sensor control in the display.

The alarm stops and the message disappears from the display.

After a certain time the alarm will sound again and the message will reappear in the display until the appliance door is closed.

82

Always observe USDA food safety guidelines.

 WARNING! Fire hazard!

Do not operate any electrical equipment inside the wine conditioning.

This can cause sparking.

Vibration and movement have a negative effect on the maturing process which can in turn affect the taste of the wine.

To avoid disturbing other bottles when removing a bottle of wine, store bottles of the same type beside each other on the same shelf. Avoid stacking bottles on top of one another on the wooden shelves.

Always place the bottles in a horizontal position so that the natural corks can be kept moist on the inside and air is prevented from getting into the bottles.

Tip: We also recommend increasing the humidity level inside the wine conditioning unit for wine bottles with natural corks (see “Increasing the humidity   ” under “Optimum temperature and air quality”).

Storing wine bottles

 Risk of injury from falling wine bottles.

Wine bottles may become wedged in the wooden shelves above and fall out of the wine conditioning unit when the shelves are pulled out.

Always pull out the wooden shelves slowly and carefully.

 Risk of damage and injury from broken glass.

If wooden shelves and bottles protrude too far forwards, they will damage the glass door when it is closed.

Please ensure that the wooden shelves and wine bottles do not protrude.

Do not cover the vents in the rear wall, as they are essential for keeping the appliance cool.

83

Storing wine bottles

Wooden shelves Adjusting the wooden shelves

The slats in the wooden shelves can be individually adjusted to suit, so that every bottle is stored in perfect safety regardless of shape or size.

The wooden shelves are mounted on telescopic runners which can be pulled out to make it easier to store and remove bottles.

Frequently Asked Questions

General problems with the wine conditioning unit

Problem

Bacteria has begun to form on the wine bottle labels.

The slats on the wooden shelves are warping.

A white deposit has formed on the wine bottle corks.

Possible cause and solution

Bacteria may form on the labels, depending on the type of label adhesive used.

 Clean the wine bottles and remove any adhesive residue.

Volume change due to moisture absorption or drying out is a typical characteristic of wood. An increase in humidity will cause wooden components to warp, which can lead to cracking. Knots and wavy grain are characteristic for wood and cannot be avoided.

The corks have oxidized due to contact with the air.

 Use a dry cloth to wipe off the deposit. The deposit will not affect the quality of the wine.
