Equipped with Marvel's advanced MicroSentry™ microprocessor-controlled refrigeration monitor, this model will always maintain the optimal temperature. Need it a little warmer or cooler at times? Simply use the amber LED temperature control to easily adjust the temperature within a 35 °F to 43 °F range.
The Marvel 24-Inch Refrigerator with Black Cabinet and Black Trim Glass Door has a durable powder-coated door with a hinge that can be reversed from the factory so you can choose which way you would like it to open. Inside you’ll find easy-to-clean molded surfaces all around, and a spacious 5.6 cubic feet of storage room. With a display lighting option, you can really show off the fridge itself or even what you keep inside.
MicroSentry™ Refrigeration Monitor:The advanced microprocessor-controlled system monitors the temperature in real-time to maintain the perfect temperature
Advanced Cooling System:Efficient cooling is automatic with the employment of a forced air cooling system
Close Door Assist:The special hinge system automatically draws the door closed when it is accidentally left ajar

What is the difference between a refrigerator, a beverage cooler, and a wine cooler?
A wine cooler is set to a higher temperature range than a refrigerator or beverage cooler because wine is not stored as cold as other products. A beverage cooler and refrigerator are similar, but refrigerators often have adjustable shelves and door storage while beverage refrigerators do not, but they do often have glass fronts to display their contents. Wine and beverage coolers have wide temperature ranges so they can be interchangeable; but if you want to store both wine and beverages at the same time in the same unit, you’ll want to keep in mind that the wine might be too cold or the drinks might be too warm.
What is the difference between a freestanding and a built-in unit?
A freestanding unit is meant to stand by itself or on top of counters. Built-in units (also called zero-clearances or undercounters) can be built into counters and cabinetry because of the front venting, which also causes them to be more expensive.
Can I build in a freestanding unit?
The only way you can build a freestanding unit into cabinetry is to leave 2-3 inches of space around the sides and top, as well as 3-4 inches of space in the back so that it can vent properly. If you do not leave this venting space, the inside will not be cold and your unit will overheat (and possibly break). Keep the extra space in mind when building your cabinetry or shopping for a new unit to go into existing cabinetry.
Can I use my refrigerator outside?
It is not a good idea to use a regular refrigerator in an environment that is not insulated or climate-controlled. The compressor will burn itself out running constantly, and the unit will never get cold. However, there are units specifically designed to be used outdoors. They can be more expensive, but they will perform much better than a regular indoor unit would. Look for "outdoor" in the product title to see these units.
Can I store red and white wine in the same wine cooler?
Dual zone wine coolers are specifically designed for holding red and white wines separately. Whites should be stored at lower temperatures than reds, so these units have separate sections with independently controlled thermostats to accommodate this. Some wine coolers feature three zones, so you can keep your ready-to-serve whites and reds at their appropriate temperatures (40-45º F for white and 60-65º F for red) and the middle zone keeps wines aging at their correct temperature (50-60º F). Whites and reds can both be kept in a single zone cooler if the reds are on top, since the top will be warmer than the bottom. However, this temperature difference is only 5-10 degrees, so you will end up with either white wine that is too warm or red wine that is too cold.
What is the difference between a freestanding and an under counter unit?
A freestanding unit is designed to stand alone while an under counter (also called a zero clearance or built-in) unit may be built into existing counters and cabinetry as they include a front vent located under the door that will channel heat forward away from the unit.
What would happen if I installed a freestanding cooler under my counter?
Since a freestanding unit does not include a front vent the heat produced by the unit during operation will remain within the built-in enclosure and eventually overheat the unit. This overheating will in turn noticeably decrease the coolers ability to maintain its internal temperature and cool your wine. The unit’s compressor will attempt to overcompensate for the overheating unit and may eventually burn itself out. At the very least you run the risk of shortening the coolers overall lifespan as the compressor is continually overworked. You also run the risk of invalidating the manufacturer’s warranty by operating a freestanding unit in a built-in space.
Are there any options that will allow me to install a freestanding unit under my counter?
Yes, if you allow sufficient space around the unit for the heat produced during operation to properly dissipate you will be able to install a freestanding unit into a built-in space. We strongly suggest leaving a gap of 2 to 3 inches on each side of the cooler as well as on top and in the back to create the needed airflow around the unit. You will not be able to achieve a true built-in appearance with these gaps but this should allow you to utilize a freestanding unit within a built-in space.
What exactly is thermoelectric cooling?
Many smaller wine coolers employ thermoelectric cooling instead of utilizing a traditional compressor and refrigerant. A thermoelectric wine cooler will contain what is referred to as a cooling node which is simply a ceramic tile that has electrical current passed through it. As the electrical current is passed through the cooling node the outside of the tile will heat up and the other side (the side facing into the cooler) will cool down. Typically, a thermoelectric wine cooler will contain small fans inside the unit which help to evenly distribute the cool temperatures being created by the node throughout the interior of the unit. Due to the lack of a compressor, thermoelectric coolers will produce fewer vibrations which in turn will equal fewer disturbances of the sediments within the wine bottles. Please keep in mind that thermoelectric wine coolers are not completely silent as the internal fans needed to distribute the cold air within the cooler will produce some noise. Overall, they are usually quieter than compressor driven models.
What is the best way to store white and red wines in the same cooler?
Typically, white wines should be stored in the temperature range of 46ºF to 56ºF and red wines will be stored between 58ºF to 68ºF. The best way to accommodate both wines within the same unit is to purchase a dual zone wine cooler. A dual zone cooler will allow you to maintain two distinct and separate temperature zones within the same cooler. Many times a dual zone unit will offer a larger storage capacity for one style of wine over the other so be sure to purchase the unit that best suits your individual drinking preference. You may of course store both red and white wines together in a single zone unit. By placing your red wines in the top shelves of the unit you will be storing them in the warmest section of the cooler. There is usually only a 5 to 8 degree temperature difference between the top of a single zone wine cooler and the bottom so ultimately either your red wines will be too cold or your whites too warm depending on how you choose to set the master thermostat of the unit.
May I use a wine cooler to store my other beverages?
The average wine cooler will not offer temperatures below 46ºF degrees. Due to this limitation we suggest purchasing a dedicated beverage cooler or traditional refrigerator if you wish to store beverages other than wine.
What is the difference between a wine cooler, beverage cooler and refrigerator?
A wine cooler is set to a higher temperature range than a refrigerator or beverage cooler because wine should not be stored as cold as other beverages. On average a wine cooler will not offer temperatures below 46ºF degrees. A beverage cooler and refrigerator are similar to each other, but beverage coolers frequently do not offer the adjustable shelves or door storage that a refrigerator will, and they often have glass doors in order to display the contents. A wine and beverage cooler has a wide temperature range so it may be used for either, but keep in mind if you want to store both at the same time you will either have too-cold wine or too-warm drinks depending on how you choose to set the internal thermostat.
