Feature Description

WineMate split cooling system is designed and used to provide a stable temperature between 52~62 °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.

SSW units are designed for installation between two wall studs, making them an ideal choice for small and medium wine rooms.

The condensing unit is located away from the wine cellar or other refrigerated enclosure as far as 50 feet, which will bring you extremely quiet operation.

The dimension and capacity are specified as follows:

Installation Instruction

Federal law requires that WINEMATE split cooling systems be installed by an EPA certified refrigeration technician.

1.Location

Place the condensing unit in a properly ventilated location. If it is not, heat exhausted by the condensing unit will build up and the cooling system will not operate properly.

Leave minimum 3 feet clearance between the exhaust side and the wall.

Leave minimum 1 foot clearance for the fresh air supply side.

Condensing unit should be elevated to avoid possible flooding and shaded from direct sun. It should not be exposed to temperatures higher than 125

°F or lower than 20°F.

Air flow from the unit cooler should be unobstructed for at least 1 foot.

WINEMATE split system is shipped as components and is ready for use only after a certified refrigeration technician has properly installed and tested the system. Proper installation is critical. WINEMATE can only warrant the quality of the components. The installation and proper operation of the system must be warranted by the installer.

Installation of the system must be done in accordance with all state and local building codes.

- 5 -

The condensing unit and unit cooler are connected by a liquid line and an insulated suction line that are supplied by the installer. These lines must be properly sized for the distance between the two units. After the units and the lines are installed, the system must be pressure tested. If no leaks are found, evacuate and charge system with R134A. Refrigerant amount will vary depending on the length of line set.

3.Electrical Wiring

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 should be 115 V, 20 A. or equivalent and not greater than 15ft in length.

Use & Temperature Control

1. Temperature Setting

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

Set the temperature higher at very high ambient temperature.

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

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 stop as soon as the temperature returns to normal value. Alarm “CA” (with i1F=PAL) recovers only by switching off and on the instrument.

3) Set-Point(desired temperature value)

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

- 8 -

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

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 o or n arrows within 10s.

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

4) Manual Defrost

Push the DEF key for more than 2 seconds and a manual defrost will start.

Care Guide

In general, always unplug system or disconnect power while doing care.

1.Coil Cleaning

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

Unplug the system or disconnect power.

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

Plug cooling system or reconnect power.

2.Moisture Removing

Remove the extra condensate if it is accumulated in the wine cellar at high ambient temperature and humidity.
