This Use & Care Guide provides general operating
instructions for your model. Use the refrigerator only as
instructed in this Use & Care Guide. Before starting the
refrigerator, follow these important first steps.
Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical
outlet. Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter
For the most efficient operation, the refrigerator
should be located where surrounding temperatures
will not drop below 10° F (-12° C) or exceed 110°
F (43° C). The Freeze Control Feature is designed
to automatically maintain the selected interior
refrigerator temperature within these boundaries.
Allow space around the unit for good air circulation.
Leave a 2 inch (50 mm) space on the back, 1 inch
(20 mm) on the sides, and 12 inches (300 mm)
above the refrigerator for adequate circulation.
The exterior walls of the refrigerator may become quite
warm as the compressor works to transfer heat from
the inside. Temperatures as much as 30° F warmer
than room temperature can be expected. For this
reason it is particularly important in hotter climates
to allow enough space for air circulation around your
The refrigerator must have all bottom corners resting
firmly on solid floor. The floor must be strong enough
to support a fully loaded refrigerator. NOTE: It is Very
Important for your refrigerator to be level in order to
function properly. If the refrigerator is not leveled during

or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture

ENERGY SAVING TIPS
Install the refrigerator in the coolest part of a dry
and ventilated room, out of direct sunlight and away
from heating ducts or registers. Do not place the
refrigerator next to heat-producing appliances such
as a range, oven or dishwasher.
Level the refrigerator so the door close tightly.
Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold air
vents. Doing so causes the refrigerator to run longer
and use more energy. Shelves should not be lined
with aluminum foil, wax paper or paper toweling.
Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the
wine cooler less efficient.
Wipe bottles and containers dry before placing them
in the refrigerator. This cuts down on moisture build-
up inside the unit.
Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings.
Remove as many items as needed at one time and
close the door as soon as possible.
