ASSEMBLY & OPERATION MANUAL
LOCATING YOUR WINE CELLAR
Provide 2
1/2”
minimum clearance for both sides and back; keep the top clear.
Never locate your wine cellar outdoors or in an area with extremes of temperature and humidity. These units
must be placed/located/operated in air-conditioned environments which do not “trap” the warm air exhaust.
Temperatures in surrounding area must not exceed 80 °F (25 °C) with relative humidity levels not to exceed 70%
R.H.. Never set your temperatures below default (57ºF) whenever ambient conditions are warm (above 75ºF) or
humid (above 50%R.H.).
Outlet power must be a DEDICATED separately fused, grounded, 15 Amp 110 - 120 V line or 7.5 Amp - for 240 V
models (CHECK BOX OR SERIAL NUMBER LABEL ON UNIT FOR YOUR LINE VOLTAGE REQUIREMENTS).
You must monitor your unit DAILY. If unit is in “Alarm”, unplug the unit immediately.
Koolr Products Inc. will not be liable or responsible for incidental or consequential damages. (See Warranty).
Place unit in a clean area and allow access to the exterior surfaces for periodic vacuuming of the condenser coil.
(See troubleshooting for details.)
Clean using a damp cloth and no detergents or polishes under any circumstances.
Always remove all bottles before relocating your wine cellar.
AREA FOR ASSEMBLING YOUR WINE CELLAR
TOOLS
Rubber mallet, hex wrench (included), phillips screwdriver.
Helper is needed.
TEST THE COOLING UNIT
Plug it in on a table top, to verify that controls and display are functional, and that the unit is producing cool air

OPERATION:
The display will show the detected temperature until the temperature falls within +- 3º of the SET POINT (normal cooling range).
If the temperature is above the default 57º F + 1º or other preset value, after a delay of 1 minute the fan will start, followed by the
compressor within the next minute.
The unit will cycle ON/OFF based on the temperature reading. Fan speeds are automatically set by the controller to achieve optimum
performance.
Minimum ON and OFF cycle times are imposed by software, to prevent "short cycling".

MAXIMUM CAPACITIES AND LOADING TIPS
Maximum capacities and sample loading arrangements for Winekoolr wine cellars are illustrated below. Standard Burgundy and Bordeaux bottles are best arranged with necks facing out; some taller bottles may need to be arranged neck
to neck. Never stack bottles more than two rows high on a shelf; all shelves must be installed as directed. Avoid placing
bottles directly in front of the cooling unit’s circulating fan for more uniform temperature in cabinet.

IMPORTANT NOTE
The top shelf of the cabinet should have the coldest temperature and may be used as your “chilling” section.
All Wine Cabinets have minor differences in temperature depending on where articles are stored. Top to Bottom
differences will be present in any Cellar due to layering and pressure differences. The coldest temperatures will
occur closest to the “Top” where the cold air originates.
The temperature readout represents samples of the air close to the position of the sensor. Other points in the cabinet
will vary according to many factors, including the type of bottle loading, proximity to the door, corners, exposure to
outside temperature, door usage etc. Just as in air conditioned rooms and refrigerators, not all locations measure the
same temperature.
For example if you measure the air temperature exiting the coil, it will always be substantially colder than the set
temperature. It is this basis that governs the ultimate tempera
air back into the cooling unit causing short cycles.
Remember, the important element for storing wine is constant temperature, not absolute temperature. We do guarantee that if your cellar is working normally the liquid temperat

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Although each Vintage Keeper cooling unit has been carefully tested at every stage of manufacture, occasional problems
arise, the majority of which are due to rough or careless handling during shipping or installation. Other issues may occur
due to improper cabinet assembly, power interruption or surge, low line voltage (less than your unit rating of 105V or
240V), or failure to clean the unit regularly (see illustration below). The following may help you determine what the problem may be; what steps you can take to correct it, and what further steps may be required. Additional Trouble-Shooting
information and downloadable documents are available in the “Support” area of our website: www.koolrproducts.com
CLEANING THE COIL:
Coil is located at the top of back
panel, vacuum it periodically.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
In order to provide maximum protection for your valuable wine collection, the following steps are highly advisable.
First and foremost, have your wine collection adequately insured. Second, install a battery-powered heat-sensitive alarm
to warn of any loss of cooling due to power interruption. Third, monitor your storage and ambient conditions on a regular,
unit as directed, on a regular basis. Every 3 to 4 months vacuum the cooling unit coils (check our website for more info).
Be advised, also, that Koolr Products Inc. or Shanghai Koolspace Co. Ltd. cannot in any event be liable or responsible for
incidental or consequential damages.
IF:
COOLING UNIT DOES
NOT RUN AT ALL WHEN
PLUGGED IN
CHECK:
THEN:
Is the unit plugged in?
Is the power supply operational?
Is the LED display functional?
Is there any evidence of shipping
damage on the cooling unit or
packaging materials?
Note that the unit has a 1-minute cautionary delay
between plugging in and full start-up; this is a
built-in safeguard to protect the compressor in the
event of sudden power failure
Note that the power supply must be a dedicated,
separately-fused and grounded 15 Amp, 120V line
or 7.5 Amp, 240 V line rated for your unit. Must not
use an extension cord. Do not share the outlet with
other appliances
If the unit is receiving power yet fans or compressor
fail to run, unplug for ten minutes, then try again.
