The Haier wine cooler is an excellent addition to any home, and it’s especially valuable during the hot summer months when you want to avoid drinking warm, stale wines. However, with so many different features and settings available, it can be difficult to find the right temperature that works best for your favorite wines and personal tastes.
In this blog post, you’ll learn nine easy steps to adjusting the temperature on your Haier wine cooler in an effective and efficient manner that works with any type of wine you choose to store inside the unit.
Step 1 – Press the Set Button
To set a specific temperature, simply press and hold down Set until you hear a beep. At that point, let go of Set and use your arrow buttons to choose your desired temperature.
Depending on how far apart two temperatures are in Fahrenheit (for example, 68°F – 70°F), it will take several seconds for these two temperatures to be selected once you let go of Set. For example, for an eight-degree separation like 65°F – 71°F it will take three seconds for both temperatures to be selected once you let go of Set.
Step 2 – Change the Temperature with a Combination of Arrows
One temperature arrow is your cool button while one arrow is your warm button. You have to push them in combination with each other (at same time) in order for it to activate or turn off whichever function you need.
The letter C will appear above or below a blue-green box beside each of these arrows when pressed simultaneously. These letters can be used as indicators for where you are on a spectrum of coolness.
Step 3 – Changing Through Shortcuts
There are two ways to change your temperature settings through shortcuts. You can use keyboard shortcuts or navigation keys. I personally prefer navigation keys since it is easy for me.
However, if you prefer using keyboard shortcuts, here’s how you can do that: Press Function and then press 3 key of your remote control panel. Thereafter press buttons 1, 2 and 3 at once. These will give you an option of switching between Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures.
Step 4 – A Few Notes about Setting the Current Time
After setting your desired temperature and storage space, you’ll see a couple of options at the bottom: T60 and T90. These stand for Temperature Hold Time and Temperature Restart Time. They are crucial in making sure that your wine stays perfectly chilled as long as possible, so pay attention!
A temperature hold time will allow you to choose how long (in hours) your wine cooler will keep its current temperature if there is no cooling activity or power outage.
For example, if you want your wine cooler to maintain its ideal 55-degree climate while it’s unplugged for eight hours every day (for instance, from noon until 8pm), set T60 to eight hours.
Step 5 – Press Enter to Save Changes
The controller will then ask you if you want to save changes. Make sure you do, or else all your work will be for nothing. The interface is fairly self-explanatory, so just make sure that when prompted with a question, you select Yes (or Sí or Ja).
If you don’t know what an option does, just press Enter to keep going until it asks whether or not you want to save your changes again. After that, it’s as simple as shutting off and unplugging your appliance and then plugging it back in after a few minutes.
The wine fridge should now remember what settings have been adjusted and automatically adjust them accordingly when powered back on. Repeat steps one through five if necessary until desired temperature is reached.
Step 6 – Check The New Temperature
After your new thermostat has been added, check that it’s working properly. To do so, use a reliable thermometer and place it in various spots within your wine cooler. Make sure that it’s reading accurately and if so, you can move onto Step 7. If not, replace your old thermostat with a new one.
Step 7 – Reset Settings by Pressing Set Twice in A Row
If you’ve adjusted your temperature using a digital thermometer, then it’s likely that some buttons aren’t functioning correctly. One way to fix them is by pressing Set twice in a row. This will force your wine cooler back into its default settings and, hopefully, allow for proper operation of all buttons.
Before resetting, make sure you note which numbers correspond with each button so that you can re-program them later if necessary. You will also want to take down any manual override commands as well such as AUX or Freeze.
Step 8 – Set The Defrost Timer
Set your defrost timer for three hours and follow your appliance’s instructions on how to program it. You should set a reminder in your calendar two weeks in advance. This will make sure that you don’t forget about it.
And, since most refrigerators will automatically turn off when they sense that there is no electricity flowing through them, make sure that your refrigerator is plugged into an outlet at all times. This may require some planning, but can save you from a lot of trouble down the road if you don’t do it!
Step 9 – Press Enter to Save Changes and Exit Settings Menu
There are many reasons why you might want to adjust your wine cooler’s temperature: Perhaps you’re a fan of rosé and enjoy warmer temperatures. Maybe you like both red and white wines, but favor white when drinking in hot weather.
You might be suffering from seasonal allergies, or perhaps you just want to save money by adjusting it for a different type of wine (cooler temperatures keep whites crisp).
Did you know that adjusting your appliance’s temperature can affect its overall performance? It’s true, and it’s why we recommend consulting a professional before adjusting your appliance’s temperature. When done correctly, making small adjustments can help keep your appliance operating at optimal levels.
