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-air supply is optimized for use in the wine cabinets.
Multiple options for top and rear hot air exhaust
Self-contained ready 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.
2. Cooling Unit Installation
• The cooling unit produces cooling supplied into the cabinet, and it also
generates heat that must be exhausted outside the cabinet. So the supply
side and exhaust side must be separated and sealed (see Fig. 2.1).
• 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 (1/2” foam tape)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).
• 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 two ¼” screws
(see Fig 2.1).
-5-
•
•
•
•
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.

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-wire grounding 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.

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;
- 10 -
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 of Fon, 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, the
Pr2 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.
to change its value.
5. Use up or down keys
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.
or wait 15sec without pressing a key.
8. To exit: Press SET +
5) Regulation Differential
The parameter Hy is used as intervention differential for set point. Compressor
cut-in is the set-point + Hy, and compressor cut-out is the set-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.

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.

a. Air sensor
a. When using an air sensor, the wine
bottle
temperature
is
mainly
controlled by the average air
temperature. If the set-point is 55°F
with the differential 4F, the cooling
unit turns on at 59°F of air
temperature and turns off at 55°F of
air temperature. The average air
temperature is 57°F, and then the
wine temperature is around 57+/0.5°F. The air is light enough to
change so quickly that it maintains
relatively
constant
average
temperature that would prevent wine
bottle temperature from varying.
