Feature Description

HZD cooling unit is designed and used to provide a stable 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, fur and tobacco.

Horizontal cold-airsupply is optimized for use in the wide cabinets or wine rooms.

Self-containedready for use and easy for installation

Installation Instruction

Select a place to mount the unit where the exhaust airflow is unobstructed for a minimum of 6 inch. The area into which the unit exhausts must be well ventilated.

If it is not, heat exhausted by the unit will build up and the unit will not operate properly. The ambient temperatures shall not be higher than 90 °F or lower than 50°F. Additionally, cold supply air from the front grille must remain unobstructed. The unit shall be mounted near the ceiling with equal distance from each side of the cabinet or room.

Cut a rectangular inside opening 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 2.1 & 2.2).

If top exhaust, cut another rectangular opening at the top of the cabinet to the length and width of the top exhaust.

Make 2 holes at the ceiling to install the 1/4 inside diameter wood thread inserts (see Fig.2.1 & 2.4).

Place the gaskets on the mounting lip sides (see Fig 2.2).

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 (see Fig 2.5).

Fasten the 2 brackets and use 7/16” wrench to tighten the 2 screws (see Fig 2.6).

Attach the exhaust and fresh air grille from the rear side of the cellar (see

Fig 2.7).

Plug the cooling unit in receptacle.

Plug the wine cellar.

2. VINO3500-8500HZDROOM INSTALLATION

1.Cut a rectangular opening at the wine room wall as illustrated. The dimensions of the opening shall be 1/4” larger than the width and height of the unit.

2.If top exhaust, cut another rectangular opening at the top of the cabinet to the length and width of the top exhaust.

3.Construct a shelf as shown. The shelf must be capable of supporting the weight of the unit.

4.Place the unit on the shelf with the back of unit flush with the outside of the wall.

5.Attach the grille to the outside wall with screws.

6.Seal the area between the cooling unit and opening with a high quality weather stripping or polyurethane spray foam and cover with molding.

7.If top exhaust, place another gaskets along the top exhaust at the top of the cooling unit (see Fig.2.9).

8.Attach the molding to the wall not the unit.

9.Plug the unit into a properly grounded and dedicated outlet of adequate capacity.

3. Cellar Construction

This is only a guide and shall be considered as minimum requirements.

All interior walls and floors shall have a vapor barrier and a minimum of R11 insulation. All exterior walls and ceiling shall have a vapor barrier and a minimum of R19 insulation. The vapor barrier shall be installed on the warm side of the insulation. All joints, door frames, electrical outlets or switches and any pipes or vents that go through the enclosure shall be sealed to prevent air and moisture leakage into the room. Concrete, rock, and brick are not insulation or vapor barriers.

Doors shall be of a minimum size, insulated to at least R11 and tightly sealed with high quality weather stripping. Be sure to seal the bottom of the door and fill gap between the door’s frame and wall before installing the cap molding.

In order to maintain 55 °F in the wine cellar, the ambient temperature surrounding the enclosure shall not exceed the temperature of the enclosure by more than 25°F. No enclosure wall shall receive direct sun or strong wind.

Lighting shall be of low wattage, with a timer to insure lights are not left on when the enclosure is not occupied.

The cooling system will not be able to maintain the proper temperature if fresh moisture-ladenair is constantly being introduced to the enclosure. Symptoms of this condition are; unit runs all the time with only a slight reduction in temperature and/or water overflows from the unit. Because of the temperature difference between the inside and outside, very small cracks can allow large amounts of outside air to enter into the enclosure. Please be aware that moisture can pass through solid concrete, paint and wood. Often a newly constructed room contains fresh wood, paint, concrete and other building materials. These materials contain

- 11 -

large amounts of moisture. When placed into operation in this type of environment, the system will work harder to remove this extra moisture resulting in increased “run” time.

4. Electrical Cord

Because of potential safety hazards under a certain condition 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 having a3-bladegrounding plug and a3-slotreceptacle that will plug into the appliance. The marked rating of the extension cord shall be 115 V, 15 A or equivalent forVINO1500-2500HZD,115 V, 20 A or equivalent forVINO3500-8500HZDand not greater than 15ft in length.

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

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

- 13 -

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 Set-pointvalue;

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;

-14 -

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

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.

Care Guide

1. Coil Cleaning

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

Coil is on the ambient air intake side of the cooling unit.

Unplug the unit or disconnect power.

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

Plug the cooling unit or reconnect power.

2. Moisture Removing

• Remove the extra condensate if it is accumulated in the wine cellar at high humidity condition.

3. Drain Line

VINO3500-8500HZDunits are equipped with a drain line fitting. In case there is a drain line needed, remove the drain plug on the bottom left at the rear, then remove the fitting plug, add a drain tube onto the drain fitting, 0.25” ID tube forVINO3500-4500HZDand 0.5”ID tube forVINO6500-8500HZD
