It is recommended you install the Wine Cooler in a place where the ambient temperature is between 23°-26°C. If the ambient temperature is above or below the 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 8°-18°C may not be reached.
Recommended temperatures for chilling wine
|Red wines||14-18° C|
|Dry/White wines||9-14° C|
|Rose wines||10-11° C|
|Sparkling wines||5-9° C|
Temperature ranges for your wine cooler
|Temperature Range||8-18° C|
You can choose temperature from Fahrenheit or Celsius by pushing this button for two seconds. The Fahrenheit or Celsius indicator will appear in white on the LCD temperature display with a blue background.
- You can turn ON or OFF the interior light by pushing the button once.
- The light will be turned off automatically if it remains ON for 10 minutes. You have to push the button again and the light will turn on.
- You can select temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit by pushing the button for 2 seconds.
- Your Wine Cooler has been equipped with an “automatic” control panel lock that will activate 20 seconds after the last time a button has been touched.
- Push the button for 2 seconds to unlock the control panel. You will hear a “beep” sound to alert you that the control is now active.
- You can set the temperature as you desire by pushing the or button on the control panel.
The temperature will increase 1°C if you push the button once and the temperature will decrease 1°C if you push the button once.
When you use the wine cooler for the first time or restart the wine cooler after having been shut off for a long time, there could be a few degrees variance between the temperature you select and the one indicated on the LCD readout. This is normal and it is due to the length of the activation time. Once the wine cooler is kept running for a few hours, everything will be back to normal.
Many bottles may differ in size and dimensions. So that the actual number of bottles you store may vary. Bottle capacities are approximate maximums.

Instruction for Uses
- 1.1 Position your wine cooler so that the plug is accessible.
- 1.2 Keep your wine cooler out of direct sunlight.
- 1.3 Do not place next to heat generating appliance.
- 1.4 Do not place directly on the ground. Provide a suitable stand.
2. Very Important
2.1 The wine cooler will have better performance at an ambient of 20-25 degrees. It is suggested to turn off the wine cooler if the ambient temperature is lower than 10 degrees.
2.2 After plugging the appliance, allow the unit to cool for 2-3 hours before placing a beverage into the cooler compartment.
2.3 Ventilation is very important for this kind of thermoelectric wine cooler. The inside PCB will be broken easily if the ventilation is bad. It will also reduce the life of the wine cooler.
2.4 If leakage occurs (which can be easily detected due to the unpleasant smell), please
- Switch off the wine cooler immediately.
- Ventilate the room thoroughly.
- Contact Kogan.com support.
2.5 These models use a thermoelectric cooling system with an automatic defrosting system, so there is no need to defrost it manually.
3. Power Supply
3.1 The wine cooler must be connected to a properly earthed socket in line with relevant, valid country regulations before operating.
3.2 Check the data label (which is on the side of the wine cooler) for voltage and frequency to correspond to your local on. If not, don't plug your cable into the socket.
When putting a thermoelectric wine cooler, ventilation should be considered seriously, please refer to the following:
- There should be at least 20cm free space for ventilation.
- The distance between wall and sides of wine cooler should be at least 20cm.
- The bottom should have at least 50mm free space for air flow.
- Air passing through must not be preheated.
- The entire cooling system should be kept in a well-ventilated place.
