Feature Description

VINO1500CD, CTED and VINO2500CD, CTED cooling units are designed and used to provide a subtle temperature between 50~65 °F for suitable space at a normal environment.

The refrigerated space will maintain humidity of 50~70% RH even when the environment becomes dry and humid.

These temperatures and humilities are optimized for long term storage of wine.

Bottom cold-airsupply is optimized for use in the wine cabinets.

Multiple options for top and rear hot air exhaust

Self-containedready for use and easy for installation

Installation Instruction

1.Cabinet Location

Place the wine cabinet in a properly ventilated location. Otherwise, heat exhausted by the cooling unit will build up and it will not operate properly.

The exhaust area must not be a closed space and must be ventilated. The ambient temperatures shall not be higher than 90 °F or lower than 50°F.

1) Rear Exhaust Location

Leave min 6 “clearance from the rear to the wall.

Leave min 12” clearance from the top to the ceiling.

Leave min 6” clearance from the left and right sides.

2) Front Exhaust Location

• Leave min 6” clearance from the front if left and right sides unobstructed.

• Or, leave min 36” clearance from the front if left and right sides obstructed 3) Top Exhaust Location

Leave min 12” from the top to the ceiling.

Leave min 2 “clearance from the rear to the wall.

Leave min 2” clearance from the left and right sides.

4) Side Exhaust Location

Leave min 6 “clearance from the left or right side to the wall.

Leave min 12” clearance from the top to the ceiling.

Cut a rectangular inside opening at the rear of the cabinet with the 1/4” clearance inwards to the width and height of the cooling unit. By not going through, leave 1/2” lip inside at the wall to place the gaskets (see Fig. 2.2).

If top exhaust, cut another rectangular opening at the top of the cabinet to the length and width of the top exhaust (see Fig.2.2).

Make 2 holes at the ceiling to install the 1/4 inside diameter wood thread inserts (see Fig.2.2).

Place the gaskets (1) on the gasket lips (see Fig 2.1).

If top exhaust, place another gaskets along the top exhaust at the top of the cooling unit (see Fig.2.3).

Place the cooling unit to a flat and stable place.

Then move it on the top of the wine rack temporally.

Move the cooling unit towards the mounting sides and push to press the gaskets.

Fasten the 2 brackets and use 7/16” wrench to tighten the 2 screws (see Fig 2.1).

Attach the exhaust and fresh air grille with screws from the rear side of the cabinet.

If top exhaust, install another top exhaust grille at the top of the cabinet.

Plug the cooling unit in receptacle.

Plug the wine cabinet.

NOTE: DO NOT INSTALL ANY DUCTS ONTO THE SUPPLY, INTAKE ANY EXHAUST.

2.Electrical Cord

We strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord. However, if you still select to use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it is a UL LISTED 3-wiregrounding type appliance extension cord. The marked rating of the extension cord shall be 115 V, 15 A. or equivalent and not greater than 15ft in length.

Temperature Control & Humidity Adjustment

1. Temperature Setting

Set the temperature at 55 °F for the optimum aging of wine

On initial start-up,the time required to reach the desired temperature will vary, depending on the quantity of bottles, temperature setting and surrounding temperature.

Allow 24 hours to stabilize the temperature for each new temperature setting operation

2. Use of the controller

Fig. 3.1 DIGITAL CONTROLLER

1) Display

During normal operating conditions, the display shows the value measured by the air regulation probe. In case of active alarm, the temperature flashes alternately to the code alarm.

1.1 LED Functions

1.2 Front Panel Commands

2) Alarm Signals

2.1 Code Description

2.2 Alarm Recovery

Probe alarms P1”, start a few seconds after the fault in the related probe; they automatically stop a few seconds after the probe restarts normal operation.

Check connections before replacing the probe. Temperature alarms “HA”, “LA” automatically stops as soon as the temperature returns to normal value. Alarm

“CA” (with i1F=PAL) recovers only by switching off and on the instrument.

3) Temperature Set-Point

3.1 How to see the set-point

1. Push and immediately release the SET key: the display will show the Setpoint;

2. Push and immediately release the SET key or wait for 5 seconds to display the probe value again.

3.2 How to change the set-point

1.Push the SET key for more than 3 seconds to change the Set point value;

-9 -

2.The value of the set point will be displayed and the “°C” or “°F” LED starts blinking;

3.To change the Set value, push the keys or arrows within 10s.

4.To memorize the new set point value, push the SET key again or wait 10s.

4) Humidity Adjustment

The parameter Fon is used to adjust the humidity in the wine cabinet. The higher value ofFon, the higher relative humidity will be.

1.Press the Set +keys for 3 sec until the “°C” or “°F” LED starts blinking.

2.Release the keys, then push again the Set +keys for more than 7sec, thePr2 label will be displayed.

3.Release the keys, select the required parameter Fon by up or down keys.

4.Press the “SET” key to display its value.

5.Use up or down keysto change its value.

6.The default value is 0, change high or low value to maintain high or low humidity.

7.Press “SET” to store the new value.

8.To exit: PressSET + or wait 15sec without pressing a key.

5) Regulation Differential

The parameter Hy is used as intervention differential for set point. Compressorcut-inis theset-point+Hy, and compressorcut-outis theset-point.

1.Press the Set +keys for 3 sec until the “°C” or “°F” LED starts blinking.

2.Release the keys, then push again the Set +keys for more than 7sec, the

Pr2 label will be displayed.

3.Release the keys, HY will display immediately.

4.Press the “SET” key to display its value.

5.Use up or down keysto change its value.

6.The default value is 4, change high or low value to result in long high or short running cycle.

7.Press “SET” to store the new value.

8.To exit: PressSET + or wait 15sec without pressing a key.

6) Defrost Cycle

The parameter IdF is used as interval between defrost cycles.

1.Press the Set +keys for 3 sec until the “°C” or “°F” LED starts blinking.

2.Release the keys, then push again the Set +keys for more than 7sec, thePr2 label will be displayed.

Care Guide

I

I. Condenser Coil Cleaning

The condenser coil is on the ambient air intake side of the cooling unit.

Clean the condenser coil regularly. Coil may need to be cleaned at least every 6 months.

Unplug the cooling unit or disconnect power.

Use a vacuum cleaner with an extended attachment to clean the coil when it is dusty or dirty.

Plug the cooling unit or reconnect power.

II. Moisture Removing

Remove the extra condensate if it is accumulated in the wine cabinet at humidity condition.
