Storing too many cans or bottles in the cooler may cause the temperature in the cooler to rise temporarily.

  • Before using the cooler, remove all packaging materials including bottom cushions, foam pads and tape inside, tear off the protective film on the door and the appliance body.
  • 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 appliance in moist or watery places to prevent rust or reduction of insulation.
  • Please leave at least 30 cm of space above the appliance, 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.
The Arrangement of Bottle

Do not let bottles touch the cooler’s back in order to maintain good air circulation within the cooler. The bottle number may be different from bottles in different shapes and sizes. Oversized bottles may impact the number of bottles that can be stored inside the beverage cabinet.

Usage of Temperature Zones Inside the Beverage Cooler

Due to different temperature zones generated due to air circulation in the cooler, the upper area’s temperature is higher than the lower area.

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.
