Wine-Mate wall split cooling systems VINO-1500~2500SSW are designed
and used to provide a cold temperature between 50~65 °F for a properly
insulated wine cellar.
The wine cellar will maintain humidity range within 50~70% RH.
These temperature and humidity ranges like in natural caves are optimized
for long term storage of wine.
SSW units consist of a condensing unit and an evaporator unit; they are
connected by a liquid line and an insulated suction line.
SSW condensing units can be located away from the wine cellars 50 ft
minimum so that noise and compressor vibration are isolated.
The SSW evaporator units can be installed inside a wine rack or between two
wall studs, making them an idea choice for wine cabinets or small wine
rooms.
Fig. 1 SSW Split Cooling System
NOTE:
Capacity is determined under the cellar, the cellar ambient and the
condensing unit ambient temperatures of 55°F, 75°F and 90°F, with R11
interior and R19 exterior insulations. Any higher ambient temperatures,
lower insulations will cause reducing capacity and the cellar temperature
may not be maintained at 55°F.
CAUTION:
If the installation area will be below 50°F, purchase a low ambient condition
kit.

5. How to calibrate the air temperature probe
If the actual cellar temperature differs from the displaying temperature, change ot
= actual cellar temperature minus displaying temperature.
6. How to adjust defrost cycle
1) In case the cooling unit does not stop running, the parameters FnC = C-n, idF
=4 and MdF = 30 can be used to cycle off.
2) In case there is excessive frost, the parameters FnC = C-y, idF = 6 and MdF =
20 can be used to avoid defrost.
7. How to adjust the humidity
The parameter Fon is used to adjust the humidity in the wine cellar. Higher Fon
results in higher relative humidity. Use a separate hygrometer to monitor the
humidity.
8. How to set alarm call
1) Speech notice will be sent to your phones when the cellar temperature is ALU
higher or ALL lower than the set-point Set.
2) In order to test the call function, set parameters Ald = 0 and dAO = 0. After
testing, set Ald = 60 and dAO = 23.
9. How to set low cellar temperature heater
The heater turns on at set-point SAA minus regulation differential Shy; the
heater turns off at heater set-point SAA.
NOTES:
• Use a forced air heater to warm up the wine cellar.

Installer’s Instruction
Federal law requires that WINE-MATE split cooling systems be
installed by an EPA certified refrigeration technician.
1. General Instructions
WINE-MATE split system is shipped as components and is ready for use only
after a certified refrigeration technician has properly installed the system. Proper
installation is critical. Vinotemp 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 and electrical codes.
The condensing unit and evaporator unit 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 lines
are connected, the system must be checked for restriction, pressurization and
leak. Then the system must be evacuate and charged with refrigerant.
Refrigerant amount will vary depending on the length of line set.
Parts included:
Evaporator Unit (liquid line solenoid valve and expansion valve, temperature
controller installed)
Condensing Unit (discharge and suction valves installed)
Liquid Filter
Liquid Indicator
Parts not included:
Liquid line copper tubing
Suction line copper tubing
- 13 -
CAUTION:
Liquid and suction line locations may differ from what are shown here,
please check on the units for proper installation.
Fig. 3 WM-15~25SFCW Evaporator Unit

CAUTION:
Low ambient condition kit is required if the installation area will be below
50°F.
Fig. 4 WM-150~250SCU Condensing Unit
Fig. 5 Liquid Filter
Fig.6 Liquid Indicator
2. Evaporator Unit Installation
1) The WM15~25SFCW evaporator units shall be installed for wall mount with
the air supply on the top and air return on the bottom.
2) Air supply shall be unobstructed minimum 12” for a direct blow installation;
leave 2” clearance for a deflector installation; air return shall be unobstructed
minimum 6”.
3) A grille can be used to cover the supply and return with 0~2” clearance; or 2-3
ft long duct can be added.
4) There is a gravity drain system used, so the unit shall be installed level or with
a slight slope downward the drain connection and the drain line shall be
installed slope down toward the drain. If rise-up is needed, a condensation
pump must be used.
- 15 -
3. Condensing Unit Installation
CAUTION:
If the condensing unit is equipped with a low ambient condition kit, do not
turn on the compressor until the condensing unit has been powered for
minimum 12 hours.
1) Place the condensing units WM-150~250SCU 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.
2) Condensing unit shall be elevated to avoid possible
flooding and shaded from direct sun. It shall not be
exposed to temperatures higher than 110 °F or lower
than 50 °F.
3) Leave minimum 5 ft clearance for the exhaust side and
leave minimum 1 foot clearance for the ambient air
intake side.

4. Temperature Controller and Air Probe
1) The air probe shall be located in the wine cellar 5 ft above the floor or the air
return area, but it shall not be located in the air supply area or other areas
where air is not circulated.
2) Air probe can be pulled out of the temperature controller around 5 ft; if
additional wires are needed, 18 gauge wires may be used to extend the air
probe.
5. Checking Control Settings
1) Use of the encapsulated pressure control (if applicable)
Fixed suction pressure setting: Cut in = 32 psig; Cut out = 10 psig
Fig. 9 Fixed Pressure Control
2) Low ambient condition kit (if applicable)
A. Use of the crankcase heater
The crankcase heater is installed around the lower part of the compressor and
shall be turned on all the time. The heater is self-regulated.
B. Use of the condenser fan control
Head pressure setting: Cut in=170 psig; Cut out=120 psig; Differential=50 psig
It closes on rise of pressure. It may need to adjust the setting in the field to avoid
fan short cycle.

Fig. 10 Condenser Fan Cycle Control
6. Piping and Evacuating
CAUTION:
• Always use the superheat and subcooling, pressure readings to charge
refrigerant properly; the listed charge amounts are used for reference
only.
• If the unit is equipped with a low ambient condition kit, charge 15%
more refrigerant in the summer.
NOTES:
• The line connection sizes of liquid filter & indicator, the valve
connection sizes of condensing unit and the line connection sizes of
evaporator unit are not necessary the same as the listed refrigeration
line sizes.
• If the condensing unit is installed above the evaporator unit, use the
suction line one listed size smaller.
• Expansion and solenoid valves have been installed on the liquid line.
1) The installation order starts from condensing unit (including receiver and
discharge valve), liquid line filter-drier, moisture-liquid indicator, liquid line, to
evaporator unit (including liquid line connection, solenoid valve, expansion
valve, and suction line connection), returning to insulated suction line, suction
valve and then back to condensing unit.
2) Use inverted siphons to prevent liquid from flooding back to the compressor
and aid oil returning to the compressor.
3) Complete pipe brazing, check solenoid valve and expansion valve restrictions
and test leak.
4) Evacuate the system; both discharge and suction valves must be in the
middle positions during evacuating.
The line sizes and refrigerant charges are listed as follows.

7. Charging and Starting the system
CAUTION:
If the low ambient condition kit is used, turn off the compressor before
power the condensing unit. Only turn on the compressor after the
condensing unit has been powered for 12 hours.
•
•
Charge the system through both suction and discharge valves with refrigerant
using the suggested amount; both discharge and suction valves must be in
the middle positions during charging.
Connect the power to start the system and check the following temperatures
and pressures.
1) It may use a fan speed control to adjust the air flow to achieve the specified
CFM. The fan will run from the minimum speed to full speed with the control
knob at the lowest and highest speed position. To adjust the minimum speed,
turn control knob to the lowest speed position, then rotate the setting (located
on the side or front) clockwise to decrease the minimum speed or counterclockwise to increase the minimum speed. The minimum speed should be
adjusted until it supplies the required CFM.
Fig. 11 Fan Speed Control
2) The subcooling at the condensing unit shall be around 10°F. The charge may
be complete when there are no more bubbles forming in the liquid indicator.
3) Head pressure range: 125 ~ 150 psig at 70 ~ 90 °F condensing unit ambient
temperature.
4) The evaporator’s constant pressure expansion valve is set around 30 ~ 35
psig (35 ~ 40°F) at factory. This pressure setting gives a dew point to
maintain the proper humidity for storing wine.
5) The temperature split across the evaporator shall be 8 ~ 10°F at 55°F wine
cellar temperature.
- 19 -
6) Again, you must verify if the superheat at the evaporator unit is around 9 ~
18°F at 55 °F wine cellar temperature under low ~ high ambient temperatures.
7) If the superheat is high, check the subcooling first to know if the refrigerant
charge is sufficient. If the charge is not sufficient, add more refrigerant. If the
charge is good, then increase the evaporator suction pressure by turning the
hex nut (5/16”) clockwise. Liquid must always be charged into the hide side
when the compressor runs.
8) If the superheat is low, then decrease the evaporator suction pressure by
turning the hex nut (5/16”) counter-clockwise.
9) Both discharge and suction valves must be in the back positions before
disconnecting evacuating and pressure gauges.
10) Close all service valves and disconnect all manifolds and hoses.

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 cellar. 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-laden air 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 cellar contains
fresh wood, paint, concrete and other building materials. These materials contain
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.
