PROPER USE OF THE COOLER
Names of Components
- The temperature in the cooler is 41°F – 64.4°F Temp Range
- Do not place food in the cooler in order to prevent bacterial contamination.
- The interior of the appliance should be kept dry
After powering on the cooler, you can turn the thermostat knob to set the inside temperature level.
- “Cold“ is the warmest setting
- “Colder“ is the coldest setting
- “OFF“ means stop cooling
- Setting range of the Celsius temperature: 5°C – 18°C.
- Setting range of the Fahrenheit temperature: 41°F – 64.4°F
- The cooler should be placed in a well-ventilated indoor place on ground that is flat and sturdy. (Rotate left or right to adjust the wheel for leveling, if unstable)
- Keep away from heat and avoid direct sunlight. Do not place the cooler in moist or watery places to prevent rust or reduction of insulation.
- Please leave at least 30 cm of space above the cooler, and 10 cm from both sides and backside to facilitate heat dissipation.
Start to Use
- The cooler must stand upright for half an hour before connecting power when it is first started.
Clean the interior before using for the first time.
- Do not connect the cooler to electronic energy saving plugs and converters that can convert DC into AC (e.g.: solar energy system, ship grid).
- When the compressor is running, there may be water drops or frost on the backside of the cooler. Wiping out frost or water drops is not needed as the water will be collected into drain tank, then inflow into water disposal pan above the compressor and vaporized.
Energy Saving Tips
- The cooler should be placed in a dry and well-ventilated room. The cooler should not be placed in direct sunlight or next to a heat source (such as a radiator, stove, etc.), and a suitable insulation board should be applied if necessary.
- Do not keep the cooler door open for too long.
The Arrangement of the Bottle
- Do not let the bottles touch the back side of the cooler in order to maintain proper air circulation within the cooler.
- The capacity for bottle storage within the wine cabinet is based upon the following marked bottle size. Oversized bottles may impact the number of bottles that can be stored inside the beverage cabinet.
MAINTENANCE OF FREEZER
- Clean dust behind the freezer and on the ground to improve the cooling effect and energy saving.
