Cleaning the Appliance
Wipe the internal surfaces of the appliance with a soft sponge lightly dipped in a solution of table salt. (Add 2 tablespoons of salt to a quart of warm water.) Wash the shelves in warm water with a small amount of kitchen dishwashing liquid, rinse and wipe dry. Allow the wooden shelves (if the appliance has them) to dry completely before returning them to the wine cooler. Use a glass cleaner to clean the glass surfaces and a commercially available stainless steel cleaning agent for the stainless steel surfaces. All parts that you wash with a soft sponge lightly dipped in water must be wiped dry. Wipe the outer surface with a soft sponge lightly dipped in a dilute solution of dishwashing liquid in water. Wipe dry using a clean cloth.
Dust and liquids can cause gaskets to stick to the cabinet and tear when you open the door. Wash each door gasket with a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly after cleaning. Do not use steel wool or sponges with steel wool on stainless steel surfaces. They could damage the surface. Do not use cleaning waxes, concentrated cleaning agents, bleaches or cleaning products containing kerosene on the plastic or rubber parts. Never use paper towels or window cleaners on the plastic parts.
Before moving the appliance, remove all contents. Secure freely moving parts inside the appliance (racks), e.g., using adhesive tape. To prevent damage, screw in the leveling feet. Tape the door(s) shut. Ensure that the appliance always remains in a vertical position while being transported. To prevent the appliance from being damaged during transportation, cover it with a blanket or other soft cloth.
