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.
NOTE: To keep your stainless steel wine cellar looking like
new and to remove minor scuffs or marks, it is suggested that
you use the manufacturer's approved Stainless Steel Cleaner
and Polish. To order the cleaner, see "Accessories."
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for stainless steel parts only. Do
not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish to come into
contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces,
dispenser covers, or door gaskets. If unintentional contact
does occur, clean plastic part with a sponge and mild
detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
5. Replace the racks.
6. Clean the condenser coils regularly. They are located behind
the base grille. Coils may need to be cleaned as often as
every other month. This may help save energy.
Remove the base grille. See "Base Grille."
Use a vacuum cleaner with an extended attachment to
clean the condenser coils when they are dusty or dirty.
Replace the base grille.
7. Plug in wine cellar or reconnect power.
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.

Vacation and Moving Care

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
open far enough for air to get in. This stops odor and mold
from building up.
When you are moving your wine cellar to a new home, follow
these steps to prepare it for the move.
1. Remove all wine bottles from the wine cellar.
2. Unplug the wine cellar.
3. Clean, wipe, and dry it thoroughly.
4. Take out all removable parts, wrap them well, and tape them
together so they don't shift and rattle during the move.
5. Tape the doors shut and tape the power cord to the wine
When you get to your new home, put everything back and refer to
the "Installation Instructions" section for preparation instructions.
The lights do not work
Is the power supply cord unplugged? Plug into a grounded
3 prong outlet.
Your wine cellar is equipped with LED lighting which does not
need to be replaced. If there is power to the wine cellar and
the lights do not illuminate when the door is opened, call for
service or assistance.
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.
Are the condenser coils dirty? This obstructs air transfer
and makes the motor work harder. Clean the condenser coils.
See "Cleaning."
