Setting up Beverage Cooler

Before Using Cooler
  • Remove the exterior and interior packaging.
  • Let your cooler stand upright for approximately half an hour before connecting it to power. This reduces the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from incorrect handling during transportation.
  • Clean the interior surface with a damp, warm cloth.
Finding a Suitable Location
  • Your cooler is designed to be free standing only, and it should not be recessed or built into a countertop or wall.
  • Place your cooler on a floor, countertop, or cabinet that is strong enough to support your cooler when it is fully loaded.
  • Allow 1.6 in. (4 cm) of space on all sides of your cooler to allow for correct air ventilation.
  • Place your cooler away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (such as a stove, heater, or radiator). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Ambient temperature below 50°F (10°C) or above 85° F (29.4°C) hinders the performance of your cooler. Your cooler is not designed for use in a garage or any other outside location.
  • Avoid placing your cooler in moist areas.
  • Your cooler is not designed to be installed in an RV or used with an inverter.
  • Do not stack your cooler.
  • For your cooler to operate normally, avoid placing it in areas with high magnetic fields or high humidity.

Dimensions

Leveling Your Cooler
  • Your cooler must be level in order to function correctly. If your cooler is not leveled during installation, the door may not close or seal correctly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.
  • To level your cooler, you may turn either leveling foot clockwise to raise that side of your cooler or turn it counter-clockwise to lower that side.
Reversing the Door

You need a 10 mm socket wrench and a Phillips screwdriver. Have someone available to assist you in the process. Make sure that you keep all of the parts you remove to reuse them later.
CAUTION: Do not lay your cooler completely flat as that could damage the coolant system.

  1. Make sure that your cooler is unplugged and empty.
  2. Adjust the leveling feet to their highest position.
  3. Use a blade to remove the rivets.
  4. Use a blade to remove the hinge cover, then use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the hinge bolts.
  5. Remove the upper hinge.
    Reversing the Door
  6. Remove the door from your cooler.
    Remove the door from your cooler
  7. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the door stopper screws, then remove the door stopper.
    remove the door stopper screws

  11. Adjust the leveling feet to level your cooler.
Grounding Requirement

Your cooler must be grounded. Your cooler is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be inserted into an outlet that is correctly installed and grounded.
Consult a qualified electrician or service person if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether your cooler is correctly grounded.

WARNINGS:

  • Incorrect use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
  • Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third ground prong from the supplied power cord.
Connecting to Power
  • Plug your cooler into a dedicated, correctly installed, grounded wall outlet. Your cooler should be operated on a separate electrical circuit from other operating appliances.
    CAUTION: Your cooler is not designed to be installed in an RV or used with an inverter.
  • Plug in and run your cooler for three to four hours before making any temperature adjustments and before adding beverages. This allows your cooler to reach a stable temperature.

Notes:

  • Check your local power source. Your cooler requires a 110 V-120 V, 60 Hz power supply.
  • Use a receptacle that accepts the grounding prong. The power cord is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which plugs into a standard 3- prong (grounding) wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from your cooler.
  • To prolong the service life of the compressor, wait for at least five minutes before restarting your cooler after a power failure.
  • Do not use an extension cord with your cooler. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician install an outlet near your cooler. Use of an extension cord can negatively affect your cooler’s performance.

Using Your Beverage Cooler

Turning on Your Cooler

Press the power button to turn your cooler on. The display screen and indicators blink for three seconds and your cooler makes an audible beep, then the compressor starts working.
You can manually set your cooler to “Standby” mode by touching the button for approximately three seconds, provided that the control keys are unlocked and no other setting is in effect (the display is not blinking). Repeating this action restarts your cooler.

Setting the Temperature
  • Press the temperature up or down buttons to increase or decrease the temperature by one degree. The temperature range is 34° – 50°F (1° – 10°C).
  • Press and hold the temperature up and down buttons at the same time for three seconds to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius.

Notes:

  • A large number of beverages lowers the cooling efficiency of your cooler.
  • When you put several beverages in your cooler at one time, the temperature in your cooler may rise temporarily.
  • Adjust the thermostat setting by one increment at a time. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize between adjustments.
  • The screen display always shows the set temperature. When adjusting the temperature, the temperature display blinks to indicate that the temperature is being adjusted.
Memory Function

If you experience a power outage, when your cooler is turned on again it resumes the same temperature that was set when the power went off.

Using the Display
  • When you plug in your cooler for the first time, the display screen turns on for three seconds and you hear a start-up tone.
  • In normal mode, the display shows the set temperature.
Lighting Your Cooler
  • Press the light button to turn the interior light on and off.
Using the Adjustable Shelves
  • All of the shelves have tabs to engage the cabinet on both sides.
  • Any of the shelves can be removed to accommodate larger beverages.
    To remove a shelf:
    • Remove all beverages from the shelves.
    • Lift the shelf upward and then gently pull out the shelf. To replace a shelf:
      To replace a shelf:

Maintaining Your Beverage Cooler

Your cooler is designed for year-round use with only minimal cleaning and maintenance.
When you first receive it, wipe the cabinet with a mild detergent and warm water, then wipe dry with a dry cloth. Do this periodically to keep your cooler looking new.

CAUTION: To prevent damage to the finish, do not use:

  • Gasoline, benzine, thinner, or other similar solvents.
  • Abrasive cleaners.
Cleaning the Interior of Your Cooler
  1. Turn off your cooler and unplug it from the wall outlet.
  2. Remove all beverages.
  3. Wash the interior with a damp, warm cloth.
    Note: We recommend that you soak your cloth in a baking soda solution before washing the interior. Mix one quart of warm water and two tablespoons of backing soda.
  4. Clean the door gasket (seal) so the door closes correctly.
  5. Dry the interior and exterior with a soft cloth.
Defrosting Your Cooler

The ice build-up on the inner back wall of your cooler is automatically defrosted in a compressor-off cycle.
When you press the button, the compressor and circulation fan stops running while defrosting is in process.
Defrost water drains out of your cooler, passing through the drain outlet in the inner back wall into a drain pan located above the compressor. The water evaporates from the drain pan on its own.

Storing Your Cooler

  1. Turn off your cooler and unplug it from the wall outlet.
  2. Remove all beverages.
  3. Clean your cooler.
  4. Leave the door open slightly to avoid possible formation of condensation, mold, or odor.

WARNING: Make sure that children do not have access to your beverage cooler. If the door accidentally closes while a child is inside your cooler, the child may suffocate.

Moving Your Beverage Cooler

Note: Make sure that your cooler stays in the upright position during transportation.

  1. Turn off your cooler and unplug it from the wall outlet.
  2. Remove all beverages.
  3. Securely tape down all loose items inside your cooler.
  4. Tape the door shut.

Tips on Saving Energy

  • Locate your cooler in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of direct sunlight.
  • Do not overload your cooler. It forces the compressor to run longer.
  • Do not open the door too often, especially if the weather is hot. Close the door as soon as possible to prevent cool air from escaping.
  • Make sure that the door seals completely to keep your cooler running efficiently.
  • Make sure that your cooler is sufficiently ventilated, with adequate air circulation behind it.

Troubleshooting

Error Codes

If a fault is detected, the display shows one of the following codes:

  • E1: Temperature sensor fault
