Plug the wine cooler into a working power supply.
Press the "+" and/or "-" buttons to adjust the temperature in the wine cooler. The recommended temperature for storing most bottles of wine is 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
Press the "Light" button to turn on the interior light and view the stored bottles of wine.
