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, see recommended ‘Product and cabinetry dimensions’.

Product installation

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

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.
  • This Wine Cabinet has four adjustable feet, which can be used to level the appliance.
  • 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.

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.

Energy efficiency

For the most energy efficient use of your appliance:

  • Ensure your Wine Cabinet has adequate ventilation as recommended in the installation instructions.
  • Avoid overcrowding shelves, as this reduces airflow.
  • Keep door openings to a minimum.
