I. Prior to Installation 
Test the unit before installing it. 1. Remove the unit from the box. SAVE THE BOX AND PACKING MATERIALS. 2. Plug in the power cord. The cooling system is programmed with a 3‐Minute Delay at Startup to protect its internal components 3. Let the unit run on a hard, flat surface for no more than 10 minutes. The cold air intake and discharge is at the bottom left of the cooling unit. Make sure these openings are not blocked when testing. 4. Make sure that both fans in the cooling unit are spinning, by confirming that airflow is exiting from the the exhaust vents at the top and the bottom of the cooling unit. 5. Confirm that the cooling unit is discharging cold air from the bottom that is approximately 10°F colder than the temperature on the digital display. 6. Turn the unit “off” and install. We recommend that you wait 24 hours before operating your CellarPro cooling unit. The delay will protect the unit from internal damage that could arise if the unit was shipped, stored or tilted on its side. II. Specifications & Requirements 


Placement CellarPro 1800H Houdini cooling units can be installed in a variety of configurations, as follows: -
Inside the cellar, attached to the ceiling, with the hot air exhaust and intake vented through the ceiling to the space above the cellar -
Directly above the cellar, with the cold air exhaust and intake vented down through the ceiling (venting should be sealed and insulated to eliminate infiltration and heat loss) -
Within the ceiling joists above the cellar, with the hot side exposed to the space above the cellar, and the cold side exposed to the cellar -
Any of the above, with the hot side ducted up to 50 equivalent feet per side -
Outside the cellar, with the cold side ducted up to 50 equivalent feet per side We recommend at least 8” of clearance opposite all points of airflow. 
Ambient Environment The fresh air intake (on the hot side of the cooling unit) must have access to cool air ranging from 40F to 95F. With the addition of our compressor heater, the lower limit of the intake temperature can drop to 20F, and with the addition of our fan cycling switch (and the compressor heater), the lower limit of the intake temperature can drop to ‐20F. If the hot air exhaust will be directed to a common space as the fresh air intake, the space will need to be at least as large as the wine cellar to ensure that the hot exhaust is sufficiently dissipated before the unit pulls its fresh air. CellarPro cooling units are not designed to add heat to the cellar space, so if temperatures inside the cellar drop below proper wine storage temperatures, the cooling unit cannot create heat inside the cellar. 
Insulation and Airtight Construction CellarPro cooling units are designed to be installed inside wine cellars that have proper insulation, moisture barriers and an airtight seal from the environment outside the cellar. Interior walls and floor should have a minimum of R‐11 insulation, and a vapor barrier on the warm side of the insulation. The ceiling should have a minimum of R‐19 insulation and a vapor barrier on the warm side of the insulation. Doors also should be insulated and tightly sealed with weather stripping around the perimeter of the door. Surface‐mounted fixtures are recommended over recessed lighting, which can allow air to leak into the cellar. It is important that all walls, joints, doors and windows, electrical outlets and/or switches, pipes, vents and light fixtures be sealed to prevent air and moisture from entering the cellar. If there is a leak in the cellar, the cooling unit will build up excess condensation. 7 V5.17

Sizing Our 1800H Houdini cooling unit is sized to handle cellars with lots of glass, within certain limitations. For example, the unit is sized to handle cellars with the following attributes: For example, assuming 75F ambient temperature, R13 insulation in the non‐glass walls and no ducting, the 1800H would work in the following cellars: Cellar Glass Cellar Cellar Dims Cu Ft Glass Sq Ft Pane Temp BTUH 6'w x 2 1/2'd x 9'h 135 54 (Front Wall) Single 60F 1735 7'w x 2 1/2'd x 10'h 175 70 (Front Wall) Double 55F 1681 7'w x 2 1/2'd x 10'h 175 120 (Front & Side Walls) Double 58F 1922 
Condensate Management System CellarPro 1800H Houdini cooling units are equipped with a condensate management system, which includes an oversized stainless steel pan and a thermostatically‐controlled electric heating element. The cooling unit can be configured to include a condensate drain line for overflow moisture at an additional cost. 
Fan Speeds CellarPro 1800H Houdini cooling units include dual variable high‐velocity fans, which can be set independently to achieve desired results, as follows: -
Variable fan speed for the cold side provides cooling flexibility o
Low fan speed: 1456 BTUH @ 55F / 51F lowest achievable cellar temperature o
High fan speed: 1864 BTUH @55F / 47F lowest achievable cellar temperature - Variable fan speed for the hot side provides the choice between maximizing performance vs minimizing noise o
Low fan speed: 49 dBA / 85F maximum intake temperature o
High fan speed: 55 dBA / 95F maximum intake temperature 8 V5.17

Intake from top or right side Exhaust from top in a choice of 2 orientations Air deflector optional CellarPro cooling units create significant hot air which must be exhausted into an appropriately‐
sized space so that the heat can dissipate. If the space is constrained and/or too small, the heat will not dissipate and/or may create back‐pressure. In this event, the cooling unit may be forced to re‐
circulate its hot air exhaust and/or it won’t be able to pull fresh air across the condenser coils. If this happens, the cooling unit will go into HA2 alarm mode, and the cooling unit’s ability to create cold air inside the cellar will be compromised. The hot exhaust and fresh air intake must be directed to a space that is at least as large as the wine cellar, unless the two airflows are ducted to separate spaces. 9 V5.17

Ducting – Hot Side We offer duct kits that allow the fresh air intake and/or hot exhaust to be ducted up to 50 equivalent feet each with a minimum of 6” diameter ducting from start to finish, or 100 equivalent feet each with our auxiliary fan and 6” diameter ducting from start to finish. Please only use genuine CellarPro duct adapters and the HIGH fan speed on the hot‐side fan always should be used when ducting the hot side of the cooling unit. Avoid the following when ducting our cooling unit, which could cause permanent damage to your cooling unit: -

Use custom duct adapters instead of the CellarPro duct adapters Reduce the ducting below 6” diameter Use hot‐side fan at low fan speed Exceed the equivalent length limits Ducting – Cold Side Using the same duct kits described in the previous section, 1800H Houdini cooling units can have the cold air exhaust and return air intake ducted up to 50 equivalent feet each using 6” diameter insulated ducting from start to finish. (Unlike the hot side, however, the cold side distance cannot be extended with an auxiliary fan). Please only use genuine CellarPro duct adapters and the HIGH fan speed on the cold‐side fan when ducting the cold side of the cooling unit. Avoid the following when ducting our cooling unit, which could cause permanent damage to your cooling unit: -

Use custom duct adapters instead of the CellarPro duct adapters Reduce the ducting below 6” diameter Use hot‐side fan at low fan speed Exceed the equivalent length limits Air Filter Screen: Fresh Air Intake Filter When the fresh air intake of the cooling unit cooling unit IS NOT DUCTED, the provided magnetic filter screen should be installed over the intake vent plate. The size of the filter is 5‐3/8” x 8‐5/8”, and can be cleaned with warm water. If the unit is mounted inside the cellar, make sure the fresh air intake opening in the ceiling is large enough for filter removal, or relocate the filter to the opposite side of the ceiling and secure in place. For systems where the hot side fresh air intake IS DUCTED, the provided register grill includes a filter screen. The size of the filter is 3‐3/4” x 11‐3/4”, and attaches to the inside of the 4”x12” register grill. The register grill should be installed over the inlet of a 4” high x 12” wide x 6” diameter duct boot adapter (not provided). 10 V5.17
Power Requirements CellarPro cooling systems should be plugged into a dedicated non‐GFI outlet connected to a 15‐
amp circuit. The cooling unit uses approximately 4.7 amps during its “on” cycle (does not include use of receptacle, 3 amps maximum). Several variables, including the minimum set point, the temperature in the ambient environment, the insulation of the cellar, and the thermal mass inside the cellar, will affect the cooling unit’s runtime. It is normal for the cooling unit to run up to 75 percent of the time to maintain proper conditions inside the cellar. Select a power receptacle (Side or Rear) and plug the provided power cord into that receptacle. Plug the other end of the power cord into a dedicated 15‐amp circuit. A surge‐protected circuit is recommended. Set the power selector switch to energize the appropriate receptacle used (Side or Rear). 11 V5.17
III. Installation Instructions 
TEST THE UNIT BEFORE INSTALLING IT 1. Remove the unit from the box. SAVE THE BOX AND PACKING MATERIALS. 2. Plug in the power cord. The cooling system is programmed with a 3‐Minute Delay at Startup to protect its internal components 3. Let the unit run on a hard, flat surface for no more than 10 minutes. The cold air intake and discharge is at the bottom left of the cooling unit. Make sure these openings are not blocked when testing. 4. Make sure that both fans in the cooling unit are spinning, by confirming that airflow is exiting from the exhaust vents at the top and the bottom of the cooling unit. 5. Confirm that the cooling unit is discharging cold air from the bottom that is approximately 10°F colder than the temperature on the digital display 6. Turn the unit “off” and install. 
CellarPro cooling units must always be mounted in the upright position 
Each airflow opening (intake and exhaust) should have a minimum of 8” of clearance to allow air to circulate freely into and out of the cooling unit 
Ideally the cold air exhaust and return air intake will be located near the top of the cellar. Because cold air falls, it is best to exhaust the cold air at the top of the cellar, and because warm air rises, it is best to catch the warm air when it first begins to accumulate at the top of the cellar. 
Once the cooling unit is installed, all cracks and gaps between the cooling unit and the cellar should be sealed. 
Mounting brackets should be attached to the sides of the cooling unit, and then used to attach the cooling unit to the ceiling inside the cellar, to the floor above the cellar, through the ceiling of the cellar, or in a remote location with the addition of our duct adapters 12 V5.17

The cooling unit can be configured in several ways, with or without ducting, as shown below: 13 V5.17
 Installation Notes The unit is shipped with standard equipment that includes 2 mounting brackets, a fresh‐air filter and an air deflector for the cold air discharge, as discussed below. 1. Mounting BELOW the Ceiling: Start by removing the 6 screws on the sides of the cooling unit (3 screws on each side along the top edge of the cooling unit, as shown in the drawing below). Place a mounting bracket over the open screw holes, one bracket per side, then re‐attach the sheet metal screws. Attach the brackets to the cooling unit using the round holes, so that the wide slot openings are perpendicular to the cooling unit. Once the brackets are attached to the cooling unit, use the six #8 x 3/4 wood screws (included), to attach the brackets to framing in the ceiling. -
In this configuration, 2 sealed openings in the ceiling will need to be created for the hot exhaust and the fresh air intake, and the filter should be placed above the opening for the fresh air intake, where it will be most conveniently accessible. The air deflector is designed to be placed below the cooling unit, using its magnets, so that it directs the cold‐air discharge to the right, away from the return air opening. An additional deflector can be purchased to direct the hot air exhaust away from the fresh air intake if necessary. 14 V5.17
2.
Mounting IN the Ceiling: -
-
Start by cutting out a hole in the ceiling that measures 36 3/16”W x 10 1/4"D. Slide the unit into the hole from below, and mark the desired location of the mounting brackets along the sides of the cooling unit. Take care to ensure that the mounting brackets are in the same position on both sides of the cooling unit, so that it is level when installed. The brackets can be located anywhere in area “A” on the sides of the cooling unit, as shown in the diagram below, to achieve desired height of the unit inside or outside the cellar. Do not attempt to drill in the front or the rear of the unit. Drill 1/8” holes in the sides of the cooling unit (3 holes per side) for attaching the mounting brackets. Use a drill bit with a stop at 1” depth to prevent damage to internal components. Attach the brackets to the cooling unit using the round holes, so that the wide slot openings are perpendicular to the cooling unit. Once the brackets are attached to the cooling unit, use the six #8 x 3/4 wood screws (included), to attach the brackets to framing in the ceiling. If framing to support the sides of the cooling unit doesn’t exist, you will need to add framing blocks in the ceiling for attachment of the mounting brackets. In this configuration, the filter will be attached to the fresh air intake atop the cooling unit using the magnets on the filter frame. The air deflector is designed to be placed below the cooling unit, using its magnets, so that it directs the cold‐air discharge to the right, away from the return air opening. An additional deflector can be purchased to direct the hot air exhaust away from the fresh air intake if necessary. 15 V5.17
3. Mounting ABOVE the Ceiling: Start by removing the 6 screws on the sides of the cooling unit (3 screws on each side along the bottom edge of the cooling unit, as shown in the drawing below). Place a mounting bracket over the open screw holes, one bracket per side, then re‐attach the sheet metal screws. Attach the brackets to the cooling unit using the round holes, so that the wide slot openings are perpendicular to the cooling unit. Once the brackets are attached to the cooling unit, use the six #8 x 3/4 wood screws (included), to attach the brackets to framing in the ceiling. -
In this configuration, 2 sealed openings in the ceiling will need to be created for the cold exhaust and the return air from the cellar. The filter will be attached to the fresh air intake atop the cooling unit, using the magnets on the filter frame. The air deflector should be positioned below the opening for the cold exhaust, so that it directs the cold‐air discharge to the right, away from the return air opening. An additional deflector can be purchased to direct the hot air exhaust away from the fresh air intake if necessary. 16 V5.17

A. Ducted Installation – Hot Side Ducting 
-
Ductwork may be attached to the hot air exhaust, the fresh air intake, or both. If ducting is attached only to one adapter, both spaces must be able to provide 110CFM of independent exhaust and supply ventilation, otherwise the performance and longevity of the cooling unit will be at risk. -
When ducting, the perforated (and solid) vent plates should be removed before attaching the duct hood. (If your configuration is known when the unit is being assembled at the factory, we will remove the plates before shipping the cooling unit.) See instructions for removing and replacing plates below (section #10). -
The unit can be ducted up to 50 equivalent feet (25 equivalent feet per duct) with 85F maximum intake temperature (no auxiliary fan required). With the addition of our auxiliary fan, the duct length can be extended up to 100 equivalent feet (50 equivalent feet per duct) and 95F maximum intake temperature. -
These specifications are based on 6” diameter flex ducting that is fully extended to ensure a smooth inner duct wall. All elbows and bends must have a minimum radius of 6 inches. Elbows, bends, grills, and adapters will add to the equivalent length. The “High” fan speed setting for the COND FAN must be used when the unit is ducted. B. Ducted Installations – Cold Side Ducting -
The unit can be ducted up to 50 equivalent feet (25 equivalent feet per duct). Cold‐side ducting must be attached to BOTH the intake and exhaust openings, with BOTH connecting to the wine cellar. -
When ducting, the perforated (and solid) vent plates should be removed before attaching the duct hood. (If your configuration is known when the unit is being assembled at the factory, we will remove the plates before shipping the cooling unit.) See instructions for removing and replacing plates below (section #10). -
One duct adapter is designed for intake and will cover the left side opening of the cooling unit. The second adapter is designed for the exhaust and will cover the opening on the left face of the cooling unit. Both adapters are designed to attach to the cooling unit with 3/8” self‐tapping screws (included). DO NOT USE SCREWS LONGER THAN 3/8”. -
Seal by applying silicone caulking or foil tape on all seams. -
Our remote thermostat (sold separately) must be used with all cold side ducting configurations. The remote thermostat is designed to plug into the face of the cooling unit and terminate inside the cellar. The remote thermostat may be used to measure air or liquid temperatures inside the cellar. o
If measuring air, simply place the thermostat on one of the racks near the top of the cellar, in a location with good airflow. The differential (HY) on the cooling unit should be set to “4” (which is the factory preset). 17 V5.17
o
If measuring liquid, place the probe in a bottle with water and rubbing alcohol (the mix between water and alcohol should be 90/10), use the rubber stopper to seal the bottle, and place the bottle inside the cellar on one of the racks in a location with good airflow. When measuring liquid temperature, the differential should be set to “1”. To change the differential on the cooling unit, please refer to our “Advanced Operation” instructions in Section III. -
These specifications are based on 6” diameter flex ducting that is fully extended to ensure a smooth inner duct wall. All elbows and bends must have a minimum radius of 6 inches. Elbows, bends, grills, and adapters will add to the equivalent length. -
The “High” fan speed settings for the fan must be used when the airflow is ducted. 18 V5.17

In configurations 2 ‐5 above, when the cooling unit is partially or completely outside the wine cellar, the left side of the cooling unit may generate condensation on the outside of the case. - To avoid water damage to the area around the cooling unit, we recommend wrapping the left side of the cooling unit (from the control panel to the left edge of the cooling unit) in 1” foam insulation. -
If the unit is ducted on the cold side, we recommend insulating the outside of the hoods with 1” foam insulation. 

Once the cooling unit is installed, fill any gaps where the cooling unit or ductwork enter and exit the cellar, to create an insulated and airtight seal between the cellar and the ambient environment. The cooling unit comes with an oversized stainless steel drain pan and 100W condensate evaporator, so that a condensate drain line shouldn’t be necessary in most applications. -
If your cellar does not have a vapor barrier and/or has air gaps between the cellar and the ambient environment, the unit may create condensate faster than the heating element can evaporate the moisture. If this occurs, you can purchase a drain line to relieve the overflow condensation. When installed properly, the drain line will drop into an open drain or bucket. The 1800H Houdini cooling unit does not require – and should not include ‐ a drain trap in the overflow condensate line. 
The intake and discharge vent and cover plates can be removed and/or relocated, as follows: - IMPORTANT: Before relocating vent plates make sure the unit is unplugged. - When ducting, always remove the vent plate before attached the duct hood. - Never operate the unit with an exposed vent (ie without a vent plate and without a duct hood). a. Always start by removing the perforated vent plate first, followed by the solid cover plates. b. Always reattach the solid cover plate first, then attach the perforated vent plate. c. When removing and installing the perforated vent plates, use a wire to hold the plate while inserting the screws (as shown below): Use a wire to hook the perforated vent plate 19 V5.17

Summary Keep in mind the following guidelines before purchasing a wine cooling unit from CellarPro: -
If the sizing of the cooling unit is too small for the cellar, or the sizing of the cooling unit doesn’t account for the type of materials (eg glass, uninsulated concrete, etc) used in constructing the cellar, the cooling unit will run non‐stop and may be unable to achieve the desired temperature inside the cellar. -
A vapor barrier and an airtight environment is required to limit the amount of infiltration of ambient air into the cellar. Otherwise, the cooling unit potentially will produce buckets of water and/or cause damage to the cellar. -
The hot side of the cooling unit must have access to a space that is at least as large as the wine cellar, and the cooling unit must have access to sufficient supply of fresh air intake, which CANNOT come from the cellar, in order for the cooling unit to be able to do its job. -
Unless modified with a compressor heater down to 20F and a compressor heater/fan cycling switch below 20F, the cooling unit’s fresh air intake should not dip below 40F. -
The cooling unit always should be located in temperature conditions above 40F. -
All airflows require a minimum clearance of 8 inches. Failure to follow the guidelines above, as well as the guidelines throughout this owner’s manual, may cause damage to the unit’s internal components, and/or limit the expected useful life of the wine cooling unit, and/or cause the product’s warranty to become null and void. 20 V5.17
IV. Operating Instructions 
Overview Test the cooling unit to make sure it is working properly before installing the cooling unit (refer to the instructions at the beginning of the previous chapter.) CellarPro cooling units are designed to maintain optimal conditions for wine storage and aging. These conditions include steady, cool temperatures, high humidity, minimal vibration and light, and clean air. The settings on your CellarPro cooling unit have been preset and optimized by the factory. Before changing any settings below, we recommend waiting 14 days to allow the cooling unit to “break in.” The cooling unit is designed to cool the cellar gently without stripping moisture out of the cellar environment. Therefore, it is not uncommon for the cooling unit to run nonstop for up to a week initially, depending on the temperature inside the cellar, the size of the cellar, and the temperature of the ambient environment. Once the cellar has reached equilibrium, it is normal for the cooling unit to run as much as 75 percent of the time. CellarPro cooling units are designed to maintain optimal temperatures for storing and aging fine wine. CellarPro cooling units are not designed to maintain temperatures for serving wine, which tend to be much colder than storage temperatures, especially serving temperatures for white and sparkling wines. CellarPro cooling units must be used, stored, moved and/or shipped in the upright position. Be careful when turning the unit on its side. The unit NEVER should be turned upside down. The cooling system is programmed with a 3‐Minute Delay at Startup to protect its internal components. 
Temperature Control CellarPro cooling units are designed to turn “on” when the air temperature passing over the evaporator coils inside the cellar exceeds the Minimum Set Point plus the Temperature Differential, and turn “off” when the temperature drops below the Minimum Set Point. For example, if the Minimum Set Point is 58F and the Temperature Differential is 4F, the cooling unit will turn on when the temperature rises above 62F inside the cellar, and it will turn off when the temperature falls below 58F. In this example, the average temperature inside the cellar will be 60F. 
Basic Operation The temperature inside the cellar can be increased or decreased by changing the Minimum Set Point (described later in this chapter). If the cooling unit runs too much, raise the Minimum Set Point to reduce the cycle “on” time. Most wine collectors store their wine in the range of 55 ‐ 60F. CellarPro cooling units are designed to maintain appropriate levels of humidity (50 to 70 percent) inside wine cellars. To increase or decrease humidity inside the cellar, the Fon setting can be changed as described in the “Advanced Operation” section later in this chapter. 21 V5.17

Advanced Operation CellarPro cooling systems can be programmed with advanced settings to achieve more control over conditions inside the cellar. Conditions like humidity, the Temperature Differential, and alarm settings all can be modified for custom applications. To access the advanced settings, do the following: Press the “Set” button and the “Down” button together at the same time, and hold for three seconds. Then, use the “Up” or “Down” button to scroll to the following screen: HUMIDITY: The factory preset for this setting is “3”. If the humidity inside the cellar is too low, press the “Set” button, then use the “Up” button until the desired setting is reached. The recommended range for this setting is 0‐6. TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL: The factory preset for this setting is “4”. This setting determines the Temperature Differential and therefore the temperature at which the unit will cycle on. The recommended range for this setting is 5. HIGH TEMPERATURE ALARM: The factory preset for this setting is “70”. This setting designates the High temperature inside the cellar at which the alarm is triggered. We recommend leaving this setting at the factory preset. LOW TEMPERATURE ALARM: The factory preset for this setting is “45”. This setting designates the Low temperature inside the cellar at which the alarm is triggered. We recommend leaving this setting at the factory preset. ENERGY SAVINGS MODE DIFFERENTIAL: The factory preset for this setting is “4”. This setting increases or decreases the Temperature Differential for the Energy Savings Mode. The recommended range for this setting is 2‐4. 28 V5.17
Standard Protection Mechanisms The cooling unit is programmed to shut down certain components to protect those components, as well as the wine inside the cellar, under the following circumstances: Scenario P1 Alarm What it means What happens Probe 1, which senses the temperature inside the cellar and controls the on/off cycles of the cooling unit, has failed The cooling unit enters a timed auto‐cycle mode until Probe 1 is repaired or replaced. In this mode, the cooling unit will turn on for 12 minutes and off for 8 minutes. Scenario What it means What happens HA2 Alarm The condenser probe is measuring temperatures that are too hot. The compressor will turn off until the condenser temperature falls below 95F P3 > 140° F If you get an HA2 alarm, turn off your cooling unit immediately, and contact CellarPro before operating your unit. If your condenser fan failed, serious damage to the compressor may occur if the unit is not turned off. 29 V5.17
Maintenance The filter on the fresh air intake of the cooling unit will collect dust, dirt and lint over time. It is critically important to clean the reusable filter. If the condenser coils or filter become clogged, the cooling unit will not have proper airflow and its performance and longevity will be compromised. Only the factory provided filter should be used. Substituting with another filter will cause serious damage to the condenser fan and the compressor. In non‐ducted installations, the filter attaches to the cooling unit with magnets and can be easily removed and cleaned with warm soapy water. In ducted installations, the filter is embedded inside the return air grill, which can be removed easily and cleaning with warm soapy water. Alarms The cooling unit has both an audible notification and a visual alarm indicator (shown in “red” on the control panel) that are activated when an alarm is triggered. Please note: the temperature alarm (HA) is disabled during the first 23 hours of operation after the cooling unit is turned on: Alarm What it means What to do Code P1, P3 Probe Failure - Call CellarPro at 877.726.8496 HA The temperature inside - Check if the cellar has a leak the cellar is too warm - Check if door was left open (above 70°F for more than 1 hour) - Lower the ambient temperatures HA2 The condenser temperature - Check that the condenser fan (on the right side of the is too high (above 140°) cooling unit) is operating (ie confirm that hot air exhaust is being produced) - Make sure that the COND fan is set to “High” - Make sure that the filter on the fresh air return opening is clean - Check for any blockages of the fresh air intake and hot air exhaust. - Then Turn off your cooling unit immediately and call CellarPro at 877.726.8496 or email info@cellarpro.com

V. Troubleshooting Cooling Unit Runs Constantly Improper installation, inadequate insulation, or a cellar that is too large will cause the cooling unit to run continuously and cannot be troubleshooted. The cooling unit is designed to turn on when the air temperature in the cellar rises ABOVE the Minimum Set Point + Temperature Differential, and turn off when the air temperature falls below the Minimum Set Point. For example, if the Minimum Set Point is 58°F and the Temperature Differential is 4°F, the cooling unit will turn on above 62°F and turn off below 58° F. In this example, the average temperature inside the cellar will be 60°F. When bottles are first loaded in the cellar, the cooling unit will run continuously (even up to a week) until the temperature inside the cellar falls below the Set Point. Hot weather conditions, insufficient ventilation and/or dirty condenser filters may cause the cooling unit to run continuously. To reduce cycle times, 1. Remove any obstructions to air flow to or from the unit 2. Check to make sure the condenser filter is clean 3. Increase the Fan speed to High 4. Increase the supply of cool air to the space outside the condenser coils, using a fan, ducting or an exhaust system to remove heat from the space. 5. Raise the Minimum Set Point on the cooling unit Cooling Unit Is Dripping The cooling unit is designed to remove excess moisture from inside the cellar, which collects in the drip pan of the cooling unit and is evaporated by the condensate heater. Excess moisture can occur when the cooling unit runs constantly, when the Minimum Set Point is too low and/or when the cellar doesn’t have a good seal from the outside environment. To eliminate overflow, do the following: 1. If the cold side of the unit is ducted, make sure the ducting is tight against the cooling unit and well‐sealed. 2. If an optional condensate drain line came with the cooling unit, make sure the drain line is free of obstructions and terminates in an open drain. 1800H cooling unit condensate lines do not need – and should not have ‐ a drain trap. 3. Raise the Minimum Set Point of the cooling unit. 4. Check to make sure the cellar has airtight seals, including the door(s), light fixtures, and all walls, ceiling and floor. 31 V5.17
HA2 Alarm Has Been Triggered The cooling unit is designed to measure the temperature of the condenser coils and, if the temperature exceeds 140°F, the HA2 alarm will display on the control panel. If this alarm happens when you first receive and start operating your CellarPro cooling unit, check for appropriate installation and ventilation on the Hot Side of the cooling unit (Chapter II). Also, make sure that there aren’t any obstructions to the intake and/or exhaust vents. If the cooling unit has been operating for several months without any problems and the alarm occurs, turn the unit off immediately, check the filter to make sure it’s clean, check the condenser fan to make sure it’s working, and then call CellarPro at 877.726.8496 or email info@cellarpro.com before turning on the unit. LA2 Alarm has been triggered As noted above, the cooling unit is designed to measure the temperature of the condenser coils and, if the temperature drops below a certain point, the LA2 alarm will display on the control panel. Please call CellarPro at 877.726.8496 if this alarm occurs. Cooling Unit Won’t Turn On The cooling system is programmed with a 3‐Minute Delay at Startup to protect its internal components. If the unit is configured with a remote display, the wiring must be connected in order for the unit to run. 32 V5.17
