If you wish to install your cabinet under a worktop, you will need to remove the top plate which is fixed from  
underneath by two front screws in the hinges and two screws behind in the angle brackets.  
Keep the two front screws if you wish to encase the unit under a worktop so as to fix it to the existing  
worktop (see diagrams page 4).  
Move the cabinet to where you want to install it. Make sure the place selected is:  
• Away from any source of heat  
• Not too damp (laundry room, utility room, bathroom, etc.)  
• On a stable level surface  
• Equipped with a power point (standard socket, rated voltage, 16A, connected to earth)  
Make sure the On/Off switch located on the right of the control panel is in the off position.  
Take out the power cord and connect it as shown in section 3.  
Check the power point supply (fuses in, fuse amperage, circuit breaker working.  
You can if you wish use another appliance to check the power supply.)  
Adjust the four feet underneath the cabinet (screwing them up or unscrewing them) so that your cabinet is level  
(it is advisable to use a spirit level).  
Slide the cabinet into its final position, leaving a space of between .75" and 2.25" between the wall and the rear  
wall of the cabinet, for installation under a worktop, fix the cabinet to the worktop using two screws in the top  
hinges (see page 6).  
Do not obstruct the front ventilation grille.  
If Wine Vault is installed under countertop or in cabinet, it is recommended that a ventilation hole be cut to allow  
for proper ventillation of the unit. A flush mount grill may be used in this case to prevent large objects from falling  
down vent opening. See diagram on page 6.  
The Wine Vault should be installed in a place where the ambient temperature is between 72-78°F. If the ambient  
temperature is above or below recommended temperatures, the performance of the unit may be affected.  
For example, placing your unit in extreme cold or hot conditions may cause interior temperatures to fluctuate.  
The range of 40-65°F may not be reached.  
Remove protective shipping materials from inside the Wine Vault.  
Remove the protective paper from the charcoal filter that you will find in the accessories pack.  
From inside the cabinet, position the filter in the round box located in the top back of the cabinet.  
Arrange the shelves to suit your convenience (see section 6.)  
Wait 48 hours before switching the cabinet on so as to allow the fluids to settle.  
If you need to move the Wine Vault, do not tip over 45 degrees, and only tip towards the back of the unit.  
Make sure you can access the plug of the unit for servicing or moving when needed.

Right Digital Display:  
Indicate the current temperature or preset temperature of upper layer. When +/- Key is pressed, display  
on the digital tube flashes, indicating the preset temperature. If no temperature setting operation occurs  
within five seconds, the system will automatically return to the display of ambient temperature in the  
storage cabinet, with the accuracy of 1°F.  
Malfunction Code Explanation:  
E2 Faults of upper layer’s cabinet temperature sensor. The sensor is short circuit or open circuit  
(10 seconds later the system will close and this code will display. The buzzer will tweet every 2 seconds).  
E9 is Superheating protection. After compressor operating 4 hours under any condition, When the upper  
layer sensor detects the cabinet temperature no less than 77°F, The buzzer will alarm and tweet every  
2 seconds. When the detected cabinet temperature is >86°F, “E9” malfunction code will display. The  
Electrical Heating will close and compressor will go on working. (The buzzer will tweet every 2 seconds).  
When Upper layer sensor detects the cabinet Temperature reaches 70°F, the system will restart auto-  
matically and the temperature will display normally.  
Preset Temperature Adjusting Key for Upper Layer:  
Press this key to adjust the preset temperature of upper layer. Every time it is pressed, the preset  
temperature of upper layer is increased or decreased by 1°F. Temperature setting range is 54°F - 72°F.  
Left Digital Display:  
Indicate the current temperature or preset temperature of lower layer. When +/- Key is pressed, display  
on the digital tube flashes, indicating the preset temperature. If no temperature setting operation occurs  
within five seconds, the system will automatically return to the display of ambient temperature in the  
storage cabinet, with the accuracy of 1°F.  
Malfunction Code Explanation:  
E3 Faults of lower layer’s cabinet temperature sensor. The sensor is short circuit or open circuit  
(10 seconds later the system will close and this code will display. The buzzer will tweet every 2 seconds).  
E8 is Supercooling protection. When the lower layer sensor detects the cabinet temperature reaches  
37°F , the compressor will stop, but electrical heating keeps going on. “E8” malfunction code will display  
(the buzzer will tweet every 1 second). When the detected cabinet temperature is no less than 43°F,  
the system will restart automatically and the temperature will display normally.  
Preset Temperature Adjusting Key for Lower Layer:  
Press this key to adjust the preset temperature of lower layer. Every time it is pressed, the preset  
temperature of lower layer is increased or decreased by 1°F. Temperature setting range is 41°F-54°F.

TEST Key:  
If this Key is pressed in Standby state, the compressor and electric heating device will operate at the  
same time, and Compressor Indicator LED and Electric Heating Indicator LED will come on at the same  
time. When this key is released, the system returns to previous standby state.  
This key is invalid in operational state.  
Notes:  
1. There should be at least 5-minute interval between compressor stopping and starting again.  
The compressor should operate for at least five minutes after it is started up and then its operation  
can be stopped depending on actual conditions.  
2. The temperature indicating range of Digital Display 1 and Digital Display 2 is 32°F - 99°F.  
When the temperature is below 32ºF in the storage cabinet, indicated temperature is 000, and when  
the ambient temperature is above 99°F in the storage cabinet, the indicated temperature is 99°F.  
3. The difference of temperature displayed on Digital Display 1 and Digital Display 2 should  
be above 41°F.  
4. The temperature setting range of upper layer (54°F - 72°F) and lower layer (41°F - 54°F) are  
effective when the ambient temperature is 90°F, otherwise it would be difficult to reach the lowest  
setting temperature of upper layer and lower layer.  
5. The difference between display temperature and setting temperature is 3°F,  
when the cabinet temperature is balanced.

Layout and Storage  
Your Wine Vault was designed to be flexible, to be able to adapt to your requirements. Many bottle may  
differ in size and dimensions. As such, the actual number of bottles you may be able to store may vary.

of track when loaded or unloaded with wine bottles. Shelves should be gently rolled out to  
their maximum extension. However, do not pull shelves out with excessive force, as this  
may allow the shelf to jump out of the track, resulting in the shelf to drop to the floor,  
creating a hazardous situation.
