Setting up my Classic wine cabinet

On unpacking you wine cabinet after delivery, check for any obvious exterior damage (dents, malformation, etc.).

Open the door and check that the inside of the appliance is complete and in good condition (walls, shelves, hinges, control panel, etc.).
In the event of a problem, contact your dealer.

Move your wine cabinet to your selected location. This location should not be a confined space.There should be space to allow air to flow around the cabinet. (not placed in a cupboard, etc.)

  • away from any heat source
  • not too wet (wash room, utility room, bathroom, etc.)
  • be on a flat solid floor
  • have an electrical power supply (standard 13A plug connected to a 30 mA circuit breaker)

Never place your wine cabinet in a location liable to flooding.

Avoid splashing water onto the base of the appliance.

Install the drip tray (which you will find inside your cabinet’s “accessories” box) on the compressor support at the back of the cabinet, locating it under the small pipe protruding from the housing, the lower part of the tank being placed under this pipe.

Take the power lead (which you will find inside your cabinet’s “accessories” box) and connect it to the socket provided at the rear bottom left of the cabinet. Unwind the power supply lead so that it can be accessed and place the appliance leaving about 7 cm space between the wall and the back of your wine cabinet.

Place the power supply lead so that it is not in contact with any of the appliance’s components.

IMPORTANT – Wait 48 hours before switching on to allow the fluids contained in the internal circuits to settle.

Gently incline the wine cabinet backwards in order to adjust the front feet (screw adjustment) so that your wine cabinet stands perfectly level (we recommend using a regular spirit level).

Remove the protective items located inside your wine cabinet.

Install the carbon filter, which you will find inside your cabinet’s “accessories” box, by placing it in the air circulation hole located inside the cabinet on the top left hand side.

N.B.: when moving your wine cabinet, do not incline it more than 45°, and always toward side where the power lead is located.
