MAINTAINING YOUR WINE COOLER
Periodic cleaning and proper maintenance will ensure efficiency, top performance,
and long life. The maintenance intervals listed are based on normal conditions. You
may want to shorten the intervals if you have pets or other special considerations.
Exterior Cleaning - As Required
The door, grille and cabinet may be cleaned with a mild detergent and warm water
solution. Do not use solvent based or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft sponge and
rinse with clean water. Wipe with a soft, clean towel to prevent water spotting.
Stainless Steel Models
Stainless steel models may discolor when exposed to chlorine gas, pool
chemicals, salt water or cleaners with bleach.
Keep your stainless unit looking new by cleaning with a high quality, all-in-one
stainless steel cleaner/polish on a monthly basis. Frequent cleaning will
remove surface contamination that could lead to rust. Some installations will
require cleaning on a weekly basis.
• DO NOT CLEAN WITH STEEL WOOL PADS.
• DO NOT USE CLEANERS THAT ARE NOT SPECIFICALLY INTENDED FOR
STAINLESS STEEL (this includes glass, tile and counter cleansers).
• If any surface discolors or rusting appears, clean it quickly with Bon-Ami or
Barkeepers Friend Cleanser and a non-abrasive cloth. Always clean in the
direction of the grain. Always finish this process with a high quality, all-in-one
stainless steel cleaner/polish to prevent further problems.
• USE OF ABRASIVE PADS SUCH AS SCOTCHBRITE WILL CAUSE THE
GRAINING IN THE STAINLESS TO BECOME BLURRED.
• Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate into the surface of the stainless
steel and become impossible to remove.
Stainless steel models exposed to chlorine gas and moisture, such as areas with spas
or swimming pools, may have some discoloration of the stainless steel. Discoloration
from chlorine gas is normal. Follow exterior cleaning instructions.
