Before it is used, the wine chiller must be properly
installed and located as described in this manual.
How to Connect Electricity
For personal safety,
this appliance must be
properly grounded.
To reduce the possibility
of electric shock, the
power cord is equipped
with a 3-prong
(grounding) plug which
mates with a standard
3-prong (grounding)
wall outlet.
Use of Adapter Plug

we strongly
recommend against
use of an adapter
plug. However, if
you must use an
adapter, where local
codes permit, a
CONNECTION may be made to a properly grounded
2-prong wall outlet by use of a UL-listed adapter
available at most local hardware stores.
The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the
larger slot in the wall outlet to provide proper polarity
in the connection of the power cord.
Use of Extension Cords
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use
of an extension cord.
However, if you must use an extension cord, it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed, 3-wire
grounding type appliance extension cord having a
grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical
rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum) and
120 volts.
Insure proper ground
exists before using.
Insure proper grounding
and firm connection exist
before use.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
If you have only a standard two-prong wall outlet, it is
your personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall
Use of an adapter plug will increase the clearance
needed for the back of the wine cooler.
CAUTION: Attaching the adapter ground terminal to a
wall outlet cover screw does not ground the appliance
unless the cover screw is metal, and not insulated, and
the wall outlet is grounded through the house wiring.
You should have the circuit checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
When disconnecting the power cord from the
adapter, always hold the adapter in place with one
hand while pulling the power cord plug with the other
hand. If this is not done, the adapter ground terminal
is very likely to break with repeated use.
Should the adapter ground terminal break, DO
NOT USE the appliance until a proper ground has
again been established.
Electrical Requirements/Power Cords
• The wine chiller should always be plugged into its
own individual electrical outlet which has a
voltage rating that matches the rating plate. This
provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause
a fire hazard from overheated wires.
• Never unplug the wine chiller by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull
straight out from the outlet.
• Repair or replace immediately all power cords that
have become frayed or damaged. Do not use a cord
that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its
length or at either end.
• When moving the wine chiller, be careful not to
damage the power cord.
