Normal Sounds

Your new wine cellar may make sounds that your old one didn't
make. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be
concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces, such as the flooring and surrounding structures, can
make the sounds seem louder. The following describes the kinds
of sounds and what may be making them.
Your wine cellar is designed to run more efficiently to keep
your wine at the desired temperatures and to minimize energy
usage. The high efficiency compressor and fans may cause
your wine cellar to run longer than your old one. You may also
hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound from the compressor
or fans adjusting to optimize performance.
Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant or items
stored inside the wine cellar.
As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to
the refrigerant flowing in your wine cellar.
You may hear water running into the drain pan when the wine
cellar is defrosting.
You may hear clicking sounds when the wine cellar starts or
stops running.

Using the Control

Your wine cellar has electronic temperature controls that allow
you to set the temperature in both the upper and lower
compartments. This allows you to select the exact temperature to
meet your specific wine storage needs.

easier to adjust the leveling legs.

as you like. If not, tilt the wine cellar slightly more to the rear
by turning both front leveling screws to the right. It may take
several more turns, and you should turn both leveling legs the
same amount.

button. The temperature will increment one degree each time the
button is pressed.
