Feature Description

WineMate cooling unit 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.
SSH units are designed to provide chilled air to wine rooms and can be
located up to 25 ft away to reduce noise.
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.
-5-
Installation of the system must be done in accordance with all state and local
building codes.
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. Air Sensor
The air sensor is recommended to place in the wine room. If it is in a return duct,
the temperature differential may lead to erroneous readings.
4. 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-wire grounding 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.
1) Customer Wiring
-6-
•
•
•
•
If the air sensor can not reach the wine room because of the distance
between the cooling unit and wine room, you need to remount the
electrical box.
Remove the 3 black, white and green wires that come from the cooling
unit in the electrical terminal
Remove the electrical box and mount it close to the wine room so the air
sensor can reach the wine room
Use extra wires to connect the terminal in the electrical box and the 3
white, black and green wires from the cooling unit.

Use & Temperature Control
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
Dip Switch Setting
-9-
1) Set Point
Rotate the circular selector in correspondence with the arrow placed nearby. The
selector represents -33°F to 50°F (-35°C to +10°C) for low temperature models,
and 14°F to 68°F (-10°C to +20°C) for medium temperature models. “10” is the
coldest setting, “1” is the warmest.
2) Differential
It is possible to modify the differential from 1°F minimum to 12.5°F maximum.
Simply shift the first two dip-switches to the ON or OFF position according to the
wanted value.
3) Defrost management and setting
A defrost can be activated manually, by pressing the “man. def.” button, or
cyclically, the interval set by the “def.intvl” rotary switch at the top left with respect
to Set Point selector. The interval can be selected from 1 to 12 hours in 1 hour
steps. If the selector is positioned on the “0”, the cyclic defrost is disabled.
Note: manual defrost reinitializes the time required for successive cyclic
defrosting. The selections are effective beginning from the successive cycle. For
an immediate effect, it is necessary to turn power to the UniStat off for a few
seconds.
It is possible to choose between an electric defrost (the compressor is
deactivated and the defrost relay is activated) and a hot gas defrost (both the
compressor and the defrost relay are activated); The defrost termination, can
take place by time (from 1 to 60 min.) or by temperature (from 0 to 86°F) if the
defrost sensor is utilized for the correct programming). If the defrost sensor is
disconnected, interrupted or breaks down for any reason, the defrost terminates
after a maximum time of 90 minutes if it is resistance-based, or 40 minutes if it is
hot-gas based.
The instrument stores the defrost state every 15 minutes to allow restart after
power loss.
4) Compressor safety function
If the function is enabled, a minimum three minute interval is ensured between
deactivation and successive restart of the compressor.
If the function is enabled, the compressor is not energized for three minutes after
controller power up.
The function is also active in hot-gas defrost mode.

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.
