particular the plastic bags which can be a suffocation hazard.
Help Prevent Tragedies
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past.
Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous - even if
they sit out for “just a few days”.
If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow the
instructions below to help prevent accidents.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer:
• Take off the doors or remove the drawers.
• Leave the shelves in place so children may not easily climb
inside.
2
INSTALLING YOUR BEVERAGE AND WINE REFRIGERATOR
Select Location
The proper location will ensure peak performance of your appliance. We recommend a location where the unit will be out
of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. To assure your
product performs to specifications the recommended installation
location temperature range is from 65 to 80°F (18 to 27°C) for
indoor built in units, 65 to 90°F (18 to 32°C) for indoor freestanding units.
Leveling Legs
Adjustable legs at the front and rear corners of the unit should
be set so the unit is firmly positioned on the floor and level from
side to side and front to back. Turn leveling legs clockwise to
raise unit, counterclockwise to lower it. (See Figure 1).
Cabinet Clearance
Ventilation is required from the bottom front section of the unit.
Keep this area open and clear of any obstructions. Adjacent
cabinets and counter top can be installed around the unit as long
as the grille and door access remain unobstructed.
•
•
Do not splash or spray water from a hose on the refrigerator. Doing so may cause an electrical shock, which may
result in severe injury or death.
This unit should not, under any circumstances, be ungrounded.
Grounding Method
This product is factory equipped with a power supply cord that
has a three-pronged, grounded plug. It must be plugged into a
mating grounding type receptacle in accordance with the National Electrical Code and applicable local codes and ordinances
(see Figure 2). If the circuit does not have a grounding type receptacle, it is the responsibility and obligation of the customer to
exchange the existing receptacle in accordance with the National
Electrical Code and applicable local codes and ordinances. The
third ground prong should not, under any circumstances, be cut
or removed.
Front Grille
Do not obstruct the front grille. The openings within the front
grille provide air to flow into and exit from the refrigerator
condenser. For this reason it is important this area to not be obstructed and be kept clean. AGA MARVEL does not recommend
the use of custom made grilles as air flow may be restricted
because of inadequate openings. (See Figure 1).
Electrical Connection
115 volts, 3.3 amps running max. A 15 amp dedicated circuit is
required. A 3 prong grounded receptacle is required.
Do not use an extension cord with
this appliance.
Front Grille, keep
this
area open.

USING YOUR MicroSentry™ REFRIGERATOR CONTROL
Door Switch
NOTE
During initial startup, or anytime power is interrupted, there will
be an approximate 5 minute delay before the refrigerator starts.
During this period the controller will be assessing the temperature in the refrigerator and the display will appear erratic, this is
normal. The desired temperature set point can be programmed
during this start up period.
Starting your refrigerator
The refrigerator will begin start up when initially plugged in or
when power resumes after a power outage. At this time the refrigerator will take approximately 5 minutes to begin running as
noted above. If the refrigerator has been turned off during use,
“OFF” will appear on the display. To start the refrigerator from
the “OFF” position press and hold the ON/OFF button for three
seconds.
Set temperature
To set temperature set point, press and continue to hold “SET”
button. After one second, set point will be displayed. While
holding “SET” button use the “WARMER” or “COLDER” button to
desired set point.
NOTE: Momentarily pressing & releasing “SET” button will access
information menu of control. Refer to appendix A for information
on this feature.
Refrigerator operation
The available temperature range for the 6BARM refrigerator is
39° to 65°F (4° to 18°C).
It may take up to 24 hours for your refrigerator to reach desired
temperature. This will depend on amount of contents loaded
and number of openings and closings of the door.
For best results allow refrigerator to “pull down” to desired set
point before loading. Once contents are loaded, allow at least
48 hours for temperature to stabilize before making any adjustments to the set point.
Alarms
Your MicroSentry™ refrigerator control will monitor refrigerator
function and alert you with a series of audible and visual alarms.
• Door Ajar Alarm: If the door has been left
open for over five (5) minutes, the alarm
will sound in one (1) second intervals. The
display panel will flash “do” and the LED light will be a steady
amber color. This will stop as soon as the door is closed.
Control
Figure 3
•
High and Low Temperature Alarm: If your
unit reaches an unacceptable temperature
outside of your set point, the alarm will
sound in one (1) second intervals. The
display panel will flash either “hi” or “Lo”
depending upon the condition and the LED light will be a steady
amber color. “hi” indicates that the temperature is 10° F (5.5°C)
above the set point and “Lo” indicates that the temperature is
10° F (5.5°C) below the set point. The alarm will remain active
until the condition is corrected.
NOTE: During initial appliance start-up, the high temperature
alarm may sound until the interior temperature reaches set
point.
•
Temperature Sensor Fault: If the controller
detects that the temperature sensor is
not properly functioning, a temperature
sensor alarm will sound. “E1” will flash on the display, and an
alarm will sound. Please call AGA MARVEL Customer Service or
your dealer if this error code is displayed.
•
Condenser Needs Cleaning:

instructions.
To clear the alarm:
1) Press and release the “SET button four times.
“cnd”
will be displayed on the screen.
2) While “cnd” is displayed, press and hold the “SET” button. The display will show the number of weeks the
refrigerator has been running.
3) While holding the “SET” button, press and release the
ON/OFF button. The number shown on the display will
reset to 0.
4) Release the “SET” key.
Alarm Mute
Press any key to mute the audible portion of an alarm.

6BARM BEVERAGE AND WINE REFRIGERATOR FEATURES
Loading Tips and Suggestions
The wine rack pull-out shelf holds eight (8) bottles. See Figure 4
and Figure 6 for typical wine bottle orientation. The wine rack is
located at the bottom of the cabinet just above the fixed wooden
bottle cradle which will store 6 bottles of wine. The glass and
metal shelves and fixed position wire rack are for general beverage storage, such as beer and soft drinks. The glass shelf also
acts as a zone separator to create a warmer zone (5° - 8°F) for
wine storage. To cool your wine to the same temperature as set
point, the glass can be removed and if necessary replaced with
a second metal shelf. Opened wine bottles and tall beverage
containers may be stored on the black metal shelf closest to the
cabinet top, on the right side where there is clearance for the
bottles and/or containers to stand upright.
(See Figure 5).
Single Bottle Racks
Since bottles are not stacked on top of each other, you can easily
view and access your inventory without disturbing other bottles
(see Figure 6).
Front Bottles (Necks Facing Rear)
Rear Bottles (Necks Facing Front)
Figure 4
The wooden, bottom bottle cradle may be removed for storing “jug” wines. Just remove the two (2) screws that secure the
cradle to the cabinet floor.
You may store magnums and other large bottles on any of the
racks (except for the top rack) by removing the rack directly
above them. Position white wines on the middle or lower racks
and red wines on the upper racks (see Figure 6).
The bottles on the top rack directly under the light will be
exposed to a slightly higher temperature when the light is on.
Position your wines accordingly and REMEMBER TO TURN OFF
THE LIGHT WHEN IT IS NO LONGER NEEDED.

Keep wines that you plan to use for everyday drinking and entertaining on the front half of the racks where labels are completely
visible. Place wines for aging or longer term storing in the rear.
Pull-out Rack
The pull-out wine rack may be pulled out approximately seven
and a half (7.5) inches to facilitate adding or removing bottles.
Do NOT lean on or press down heavily on the wine shelf. Doing
so may damage the shelf and the wine bottles stored on it. Pull
the wine rack out gently and carefully to minimize unsettling
your wine collection.

DOOR ALIGNMENT
Door Alignment Procedure
The door should be parallel to the sides and top of the refrigerator. If alignment is necessary the door may be adjusted by
loosening the 2 screws which secure the hinge adapter brackets
to the door and adjusting the door side to side. Use a 5/32” allen
wrench for this procedure. (See Figure 7 below).
NOTE
NOTE: For door closer to work properly it is necessary to maintain a minimum space of 9/32” (7.1mm) between door and
cabinet flange as shown. This space can be adjusted by adjusting
the top and bottom hinge adapter.
Top hinge pin remove to remove
the door.
Hinge adapter screws loosen
these to adjust door, on the

CARE AND CLEANING OF YOUR BEVERAGE AND WINE REFRIGERATOR
Condenser
The condenser tubing inside the cabinet does not require
frequent cleaning; however, satisfactory cooling depends on adequate ventilation over the coils. Be sure that nothing obstructs
the required air flow openings in front of the cabinet. At least
once or twice a year, brush or vacuum lint and dirt from the front
grille area (see page 3).
Cabinet
The painted cabinet can be washed with mild soap and water
and thoroughly rinsed with clear water. NEVER use abrasive
scouring cleaners.
Interior
Wash interior compartment with mild soap and water. Do NOT
use an abrasive cleaner, solvent, polish cleaner or undiluted
detergent.
Pull-out Racks
The racks may be cleaned with mild soap and water and a soft
cloth. Do NOT use any abrasive cleaners.
Glass Door
Use a glass cleaner or mild soap and water and soft cloth to
clean the glass door model. Do NOT use any abrasive cleaners.
Door Gasket
The vinyl gasket may be cleaned with mild soap and water, a baking soda solution or a mild scouring powder.
Light Bulb Replacement
DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD BEFORE ATTEMPTING LIGHT
BULB REPLACEMENT. Failure to do so may result in an electrical
shock that could severely injure you.
The 6BARM uses one, 15 watt incandescent light bulb to illuminate the interior of the refrigerator. The light bulb is a very reliable electrical component, but should it not function properly,
please call the dealer where you purchased your refrigerator
from for a replacement light bulb. Use only an original equipment light bulb from your dealer or AGA MARVEL.
Do NOT under any circumstance use a light bulb that exceeds 15
watts!
To replace the light bulb, disconnect power to the unit. Unscrew
the old light bulb located behind the display housing at the top
9
of the unit. Set the old light bulb aside. Screw the new light bulb
into place. Reconnect power to the unit. Check to see if the light
bulb operates properly to complete the installation.
The light bulb is not covered by your warranty. A replacement
bulb can be obtained from your dealer or from AGA MARVEL.
In the Event of a Power Failure
If a power failure occurs, try to correct it as soon as possible.
Minimize the number of door openings while the power is off so
as not to adversely affect the unit’s temperature.
NOTE: If a power interruption occurs, the unit may take 5 to 10
minutes to restart.
