Installation instructions

Please follow the installation steps below to ensure your appliance operates correctly.

Power

  • The appliance must be installed so the plug is accessible.
  • To ensure that the appliance is not accidentally switched off, connect your Wine Cabinet to its own power point. Do not plug in any other appliance at this power point.
  • For power requirements, please refer to the serial plate located on the rear of the cabinet.
  • It is essential that the appliance is properly grounded (earthed).
  • Connect the appliance to the electrical supply (220 V – 240 V 50Hz) with the fitted plug and lead.
  • Connections to the mains supply should be in accordance with local regulations.

Location

  • Your Wine Cabinet should not be located in direct sunlight or next to any heat generating appliance such as a cooktop, oven or dishwasher.
  • The appliance should not be located in garages or on carpeted floors.
  • This appliance is intended to be used in indoor ambient temperatures between 16°C and 25°C. Do not operate this appliance outside the specified ambient ranges as performance may be compromised.
  • This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar applications such as:
    • Staff kitchen areas in shops, offices, and other working environments;
    • Domestic farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels and other residential type environments;
    • Domestic bed and breakfast type environments;
    • Domestic catering and similar non-retail/non-commercial applications.

Ventilation and installation

To ensure adequate ventilation for your Wine Cabinet remove external protective packaging film, and see recommended ‘Product and cabinetry dimensions’.

Product installation

  • Your Wine Cabinet is fitted with rear rollers designed for moving the product in the forwards and backwards direction.
  • Avoid moving the product in a sideways direction as this may damage the floor covering/surface.
  • Your Wine Cabinet will arrive with the front feet raised making moving the product into its final location a simple task.
  • Move the Wine Cabinet into its final position making sure there is correct clearances between the product and surrounding cabinetry.

Aligning your Wine Cabinet with cabinetry

  • Align the sides of the product with the cabinetry by adjusting the hinge side front foot.
  • Adjust the handle side foot until it touches the floor and takes a small amount of weight.
  • Once the product is in place and aligned with cupboards/alcove gently push on the front top and check if the product is rocking or stable.

Levelling your Wine Cabinet

  • It is important that all four corners of the Wine Cabinet base are supported firmly on the floor to eliminate any cabinet movement.
  • Installing the appliance on a soft or uneven/unlevelled floor may result in twisting of the cabinet and poor sealing of the door.
  • The cabinet has adjustable feet, which can be used to level the product. Remove the feet cover, turn the feet clockwise to raise the appliance or counter-clockwise to lower the appliance, until it is stable. This will ensure a good door closing action. Replace the feet cover.
  • The front levelling foot on the hinge side should take majority of the cabinet’s weight and be stable, ie the cabinet should not rock or wobble.

What to do if your Wine Cabinet is unstable

  1. Gently push the Wine Cabinet back until the rear contacts the floor.
  • Measure the gap under the front foot, which has come off the floor.
  • Obtain some solid packing material (hardwood, plastic, etc) which fits firmly into the gap under the foot.

Do not use metallic materials that may corrode, stain and/or damage floor coverings.

  1. Wind both front feet up and ease the cabinet out of position.
  • Place the packing material in the location diagonally opposite the front foot that lifts off the floor.
  • Make sure the packing material stays in place when the product is pushed back into position.
  • Ideally, the packing material is large enough to rest against the back wall to prevent it from moving when the cabinet is pushed back into position.
  1. Push the Wine Cabinet back into position and adjust the front feet. Check alignment and door closing action are satisfactory.
  • Make small adjustments to the front feet where necessary, and ensure the product is stable.

Before placing wine in your Wine Cabinet

  • Remove all internal packaging.
  • Clean the inside of the appliance to remove manufacturing and transportation dust. Please refer to the ‘Cleaning care’ section of this user guide for further advice.
  • Allow the Wine Cabinet to run empty for 1 – 2 hours, this allows the appliance to acclimatize and remove any residual odours before making temperature adjustments.
  • Ensure your Wine Cabinet has adequate ventilation.
  • Do not cover you appliance with any material that will prevent air from flowing around the cabinet sides.
