4. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do
not use abrasive or harsh cleaners, or cleaners containing
chlorine. These can scratch or damage materials. Dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth. For additional protection against
damage to painted metal exteriors, apply appliance wax (or
auto paste wax) with a clean, soft cloth. Do not wax plastic
parts.

If you choose to turn the wine cellar off before you leave, follow
these steps.
1. Remove all wine bottles from the wine cellar.
2. Unplug the wine cellar.
3. Clean the wine cellar. See "Cleaning."
4. Tape a rubber or wood block to the top of the door to prop it

the "Installation Instructions" section for preparation instructions.

TROUBLESHOOTING

The motor seems to run too much
Is the temperature outside hotter than normal? Expect the
motor to run longer under warm conditions. At normal
temperatures, expect your motor to run about 40% to 80% of
the time. Under warmer conditions, expect it to run even
more of the time.
Is the door opened often? Expect the motor to run longer
when this occurs. In order to conserve energy, try to get
everything you need out of the wine cellar at once, keep wine
bottles positioned label side up so that they are easy to find,
and close the door as soon as the wine is removed.
Is the control set correctly for the surrounding
conditions? See "Using the Control."
Is the door closed completely? Push the door firmly shut. If
it will not shut all the way, see "The door will not close
completely" later in this section.
Temperature is too warm
Is the door opened often? Be aware that the wine cellar will
warm when this occurs. In order to keep the wine cellar cool,
try to get everything you need out of the wine cellar at once,
keep wine bottles positioned label side up so that they are
easy to find, and close the door as soon as the wine is
removed.
Is the control set correctly for the surrounding
conditions? See "Using the Control."
Is the exhaust vent blocked? For best performance, do not
install the wine cellar behind a cabinet door or block the
exhaust vent.
Has a large quantity of warm bottles been added? Limit
the quantity of bottles being placed into the wine cellar at one
time.
