Operation and Controls
OPERATING THE WINE REFRIGERATOR
Recommend Temperature Settings
It is recommended that you install the wine cabinet refrigerator in a place where the ambient temperature is
(68°F - 78°F). If the ambient temperature is above or below recommended temperatures, the performance
of the unit may be affected. For example, placing in extreme cold or hot conditions may cause interior
temperature to fluctuate thus the set temperature may not be achievable.
Press to turn ON appliance. To turn OFF, press and hold for 5 seconds.
SETTING THE TEMPERATURE
The temperature range can be set between 40ºF and 65ºF (5ºC and 18ºC ). To set the desired tempera-
ture, press the button to lower the temperature or button to raise the temperature on the control
panel. The temperature display will flash for 5 seconds indicating that the desired temperature is set and
will revert back to its actual internal temperature.
NOTE: The temperature inside the wine cabinet refrigerator is dependent on the ambient temperature
INTERIOR LIGHT / ºC and ºF SELECTOR
You can turn on and off the interior light by pressing the Light button on the control panel. To change tem-
perature conversions, touch and hold for 5 seconds.
LEVELING THE APPLIANCE
It is important for your appliance to be leveled in order to work properly. It can be raised or lowered by rotat-
ing each of the feet on the bottom of the machine. If you find that the surface is not level, rotate the feet until
the appliance becomes level .You may need to make several adjustments to level it. We recommend using a
carpenter’s level to check the machine.
NOTE: The Whynter FWC-1201BB has 2 large leveling legs and 1 small leveling leg under the door hinge.
1. Place a carpenter’s level on top of the product to see if
the appliance is level from front to back and side to
2. Adjust the height of the feet as follows: Turn the level-
ing feet to the right to lower that side of the refrigera-
tor. Turn the leveling feet to the left to raise that side of
