INTRODUCTION
Customer Service
Thank you for purchasing a CellarCool cooling system. We strive to provide the highest quality products and the
best possible customer service. If you have any questions about your system, please call us at 1-855-235-5271 or visit
cellarcool.com.
Using the Manual
This Owners Manual is intended to assist in the proper installation and maintenance of the cooling system. In order
to ensure the longevity of your cooling unit, the equipment should be installed properly and have a proper care and
maintenance schedule (as outlined in page 39). Please read and review this manual carefully and keep it for future
reference.
What Is the CellarCool Cooling System?
The CellarCool cooling system is a specialized refrigeration system designed for one purpose only: to maintain the
optimal temperature and humidity levels conducive to the proper storage and aging of fine wines. This system
produces minimal in-cellar noise and has the most lenient exhaust requirements. An exterior housing is required for
outdoor condensing unit installations.
How Does the Cooling System Work?
Similar to the air conditioning systems used for homes, the evaporator and condensing units are installed in separate
locations and are connected by a refrigerant line set. The evaporator portion is commonly installed in the wine cellar
to remove heat and the condensing unit either outside or in a remote indoor location where the heat is expelled.
Temperature Setting
The CellarCool system, with a CellarCool controller, can be set at any temperature within the acceptable wine-aging
range of 50°F to 67°F. It is designed to cool the cellar up to 55°F cooler than the ambient temperature of the space to
which the condensing unit is installed.
WARRANTY REGISTRATION

PREPARING THE WINE CELLAR
The performance and life of your system is contingent upon the
steps you take in preparing the wine cellar.
Note: Improperly preparing your enclosure or incorrectly installing your
unit may cause unit failure, leaking of condensation, and other negative side effects.
IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU OBTAIN THE ASSISTANCE
OF A WINE STORAGE PROFESSIONAL.
Wine storage professionals work with licensed contractors, refrigeration technicians, and racking companies to build
well-insulated, beautiful, and protective wine cellars. CellarCool has put together some useful tips to assist in the
installation process. Our recommendations are meant to act as a guide in the process of building a proper enclosure.
Your intended location may have specific needs that we do not address.
Wall & Ceiling Framing
Build wine cellar walls using standard 2x4 or 2x6 construction methods and ceiling joists following the guidelines of
local and state codes in your area. As a general rule, the thicker the walls and the higher the insulation value in your
cellar, the better it will be at maintaining a consistent temperature.
Insulation
Insulation is REQUIRED with the use of the CellarCool product. Standard fiberglass or rigid foam insulation is normally used in cellar construction or, in some cases, “blown-in” insulation is used. It is very important that all walls and
ceilings are insulated to keep the cellar temperature as consistent as possible during the summer and winter months.
The R-value, or quality of insulation, is determined by the rate at which heat passes through the insulation. The higher
the R-value, the more resistant the insulation is to conducting heat. Using higher R-values in insulation will lower your
operating costs and unit run time. (R-13 minimum, R-19 recommended, R-30 for ceiling and exterior walls.)
Vapor Barrier
Water vapor creates its own pressure, separate from the air pressure, and will intrude into colder/drier areas. A vapor
barrier is REQUIRED to prevent the intrusion of water vapor so that the cellar can be kept at the correct temperature
and humidity. 6 mm plastic sheeting (recommended) should be applied to the warm side of the cellar walls. The
vapor barrier must also be applied to the outside walls and ceiling. If it is impossible to reach the outside, then the
plastic must be applied from within the cellar. The most common method is to wrap the entire interior, leaving the
plastic loose in the stud cavity so the insulation can be placed between each stud. All of the walls and ceiling must be
wrapped in plastic for a complete vapor barrier.
In areas of high humidity, such as Southern and Gulf States, the vapor barrier will prevent infiltration of warm moist
air. The moist air can cause mold to form, and standing water in drain pans promote microbial and fungal growth that
cause unpleasant odors and indoor air quality problems. If mold is found, remove it immediately and sanitize that
portion of the unit. High humidity significantly increases the heat load on the refrigerant system.
Any break in the vapor barriers (cut, nail hole, over-lapping, etc) will allow a moisture leak and must be sealed. Electric
conduit is a “duct” for vapor to travel in. The conduit should be caulked and sealed on the warm air end.

TWS 092115
Unobstructed Airflow
Unobstructed airflow to and from the system is critical for the system’s overall performance and life-span. A
minimum three-foot clearance (five foot is ideal) area is crucial. The air the fans blow needs to circulate and either
dissipate or absorb heat from the space, the more air to exchange the more efficient the system will operate.
Note: Avoid attempting to camouflage the unit. This will restrict airflow and thus the systems’s ability to work
efficiently.
Keep Clear
Wine Cellar
Mounting the Unit
The evaporator unit must be mounted within 18“ of the top of the room in order to achieve sufficient cooling.
As the room cools down, the warm air will rise to the ceiling. Mounting the unit high in the room will create a
consistently cool environment by capturing the warm air and replacing it with cool air. Mounting the unit low in
the room will result in a temperature variation in the room due to the unit’s inability to draw warm air from the
ceiling of the cellar to the unit itself, and cold air settling to the floor.
Door and Door Seal
An exterior grade (1 3/4”) door must be installed as a
cellar door. It is very important that weather stripping is
attached to all 4 sides of the doorjamb. A bottom “sweep”
or threshold is also required. The door must have a very
good seal to keep the cool cellar air from escaping out
of the cellar. One of the most common problems with
cooling systems running continually is due to the door not
sealing properly. In cases where glass doors are used
and the room size is close to the recommended system
size, the next larger size CellarCool system should be
used. This will compensate for the insulation loss due to
the lower insulating rating of glass.

screw into the left pilot hole after
aligning it with the left vertical key hole.
Tighten both screws when the unit is
already in place.
Ensure the unit is installed level. Once
unit has been checked/adjusted to sit
level, install one screw in each of the
bottom key hole cut outs.
Refer to page 26 for proper wiring of the twin system evaporator units.
Using proper practices and procedures for brazing refrigeration tubing: Purge nitrogen in to the system,
braze the large tube of the line set to the suction line outlet and small tube to the liquid line inlet at the
evaporator. Pressurize the system to 200 PSIG for 30 minutes to verify the system is sealed. Once complete,
insulate the exposed suction line in the evaporator unit using Armaflex Insulation.
Note: If the liquid line is going to sit in an area with direct sunlight or high ambient temperatures,
insulation on the liquid line is recommended. DO NOT INSULATE the suction line and liquid line
with direct copper to copper contact. Each line needs to be insulated individually. Seal entry hole
using expanding foam insulation.

HORIZONTAL MOUNT DRAIN LINE
Condensate Drain Line Tube
The condensate drain line tube is used to remove excess condensation from the evaporator unit to a proper discharge
location. It is important that the drain line tube is properly connected and used to prevent leakage and other problems associated with excess condensation.
Failure to use the condensate drain line tube will void the warranty on the unit.
Drain Line
All systems come with a drain line for removal of excess
condensate. It is mandatory to install the drain line whether it
leads through the wall and out of the cellar or remains inside the
cellar. During operation, the cooling system will condense excess
water from the air in order to maintain the proper level of humidity
within the cellar. However in extreme humidity, additional
condensate will be removed. Thus the drain line will prevent
overflow and leaking by allowing for discharge of the additional
condensate.
Attach the provided tube to the
desired drain line option
followed by running the line to
an appropriate dispense area.

Fill a wine bottle ¾ full with water between 60-75°F. Insert the bottle probe into the neck of the bottle as far as
possible. (It is important the bottle probe stopper is compressed by the neck of the bottle to ensure water will not leak
out). Verify that the bottle probe is properly installed and the set point on the controller is low enough to allow the
system to run continuously for 30 minutes or more.
INSTALLING THE CONDENSING UNIT
Connect the 4 valve manifold gauge set to the liquid line king valve and suction line service valve ports on the Condensing
Unit.
Suction Line Service Valve, and Liquid Line King Valve Instructions
The condensing unit is shipped from the factory with both valve stems front seated. This means the valve stem has been
rotated clockwise all the way in. (With the valve stem in this position the refrigerant line is closed, and the service port is
open.) There is a plastic cap installed over the service port from the factory. The valves are sent in this orientation to keep the
factory nitrogen charge inside of the condensing unit. The factory nitrogen charge is used solely to prevent moisture and
contaminants from entering the system prior to the install.
The valve stem will need to be mid-seated to evacuate and charge the system. Follow the instructions below for valve stem
seating instructions.
Back seat both valves by rotating the valve stem counter clockwise until the stem stops. (Do not over torque the valve stem
as this will cause the packing between the valve stem and valve body to leak.) Once the valve stem is fully back seated
rotate the valve stem one and a half turns clockwise. This will keep the refrigerant line all the way open and allow the service
valves to be open for evacuation and charging purposes.
Evacuation
Close off the high and low side valves on the manifold gauge set. Connect the charging hose from the manifold gauge set
to the outlet of the charging scale. Connect another refrigerant hose to a tank of R404a and to the inlet of the charging
scale. Open the tank of R404a and place it on a charging scale in the upside down position, with the power turned off to the
condensing unit. Set the charging scale to 60 grams. Press the charge button and loosen the charging hose from the
manifold gauge. This process is very important as it will purge out any air that is trapped between the refrigerant tank,
charging scale, and manifold gauge set. Once the liquid refrigerant begins to flow out of the hose, tighten the charging
hose to the manifold gauge set.
Energize the liquid line solenoid valve (Meaning make sure the evaporator units are wired together, turned on, and calling
for cooling). Connect a micron gauge directly to the pump, blank off, and start the pump to verify that it is capable of a
200 micron vacuum and the gauge is capable of reading that vacuum. Connect a micron gauge in line with the vacuum
hose at the manifold gauge set. Remove the Schrader Valve Depressors from the gauge hoses to reduce restriction and
connect gauges to the suction and liquid line service valve service ports on the Condensing Unit. Connect the pump to the
vacuum hose on the manifold gauge set. Start the pump and run until the micron gauge reads 200 microns.
When a 200 micron level evacuation is achieved, close off the pump and turn it off. Let the system sit for two minutes,
monitoring the vacuum level. Ensure the system vacuum level does not rise above 500 microns, this will confirm that all
moisture has been removed from the system as well ensure there are no leaks. If the vacuum level does rise above 500
microns, perform a leak check, repair leaks if necessary, and repeat the evacuation process.
Charging
Close off the high and low side valves on the manifold gauge set. Remove the vacuum pump and the micron gauge from
the system. Open the refrigerant valve on the manifold gauge set and charge the system with 3.5lbs of R404a. Set the
refrigerant tank in the upright position. Turn power on to the condensing unit and allow the system to run for 10 minutes.
Observe the sight glass for bubbles. If bubbles are present open the low side valve on the manifold gauge set and monitor
the sight glass. Once the bubbles begin to disappear close off the low side valve on the manifold gauge to stop the flow of
refrigerant. Allow the system to run for a period of 5 minutes. Observe the sight glass for bubbles, if bubbles are still present,
open the low side valve on the manifold gauge set and admit more vapor into the system. Once the sight glass is full and
stays full for a period of 10 minutes the system is fully charged.

Superheat Checking/Expansion Valve Adjustments
Note: Keep the Warranty Checklist on hand so it can be filled out at the time measurements and adjustments are made. Install a
temperature sensor at the outlet of the evaporator coil on the suction line, two to three inches upstream from the sensing
bulb. Peel some of the cork tape back to get access to the copper suction line. Zip tie the bead of the temperature sensor
to the suction line and insulate with ½” Armaflex insulation. Allow time for the temperature to register on the temperature
meter and settle out (this usually takes about a minute). Document the temperature of the suction line and compare it to
the low side pressure gauge reading, converted to temperature. If superheat is not between 8-12°F, an adjustment to the
expansion valve is needed.
(Superheat = suction line temperature – low side pressure gauge reading converted to temperature).
Locate the expansion valve and remove the cork tape from the bottom end of the valve. Place one crescent wrench on the
valve body and another crescent wrench on the nut located at the bottom of the valve. Hold the crescent wrench that is
on the valve body firmly in place, and use the other crescent wrench on the nut to break it loose. Remove the nut from the
valve to expose the superheat setting valve stem. Using a service wrench, rotate the valve stem in half turn increments.
Turning the valve stem clockwise will increase superheat, turning the valve stem counter clockwise will decrease superheat.
Once an adjustment has been made, allow the system to run for 5 minutes and check the temperature sensor and the low
side gauge converted to temperature. If the superheat is between 8-12˚F, then the expansion valve is set correctly, if not,
repeat the process until 8-12˚F superheat is achieved. Reinstall the cap and cork tape removed from the expansion valve.
Disconnect the temperature sensor from the suction line and reinsulate the line where the sensor was installed (failure to do
this can result in condensation issues).
Measuring Sub-Cooling/ Sub-Cooling Adjustments
Zip tie the bead of a temperature sensor to the liquid line 2” from the outlet of the condenser coil. Insulate the temperature
sensor using Armaflex to prevent inaccurate readings. Allow time for the temperature to register on the temperature meter
and stabilize out (this usually takes about a minute). Compare the temperature of the liquid line with the condensing
pressure converted to temperature. 1-8˚F of sub-cooling is optimal.
(Sub-cooling = condensing pressure converted to temperature – liquid line temperature).
If sub-cooling is 10˚F or higher, the system is overcharged or has non-condensables. Make sure the condenser fan motor is
running when performing the sub-cooling measurement. If it is cold out and the fan motor cycles on and off, place a piece
of paper over approximately 60% of the air inlet of the condenser coil, this will help stabilize the condensing temp to get an
accurate reading. Once this has been done, allow the system to run for 5 minutes and verify the amount of sub-cooling. If
the system is over charged recover a small amount of refrigerant, just to the point where there is a small amount of bubbles
in the sight glass. Allow the system to run for 5 minutes and recheck the sub-cooling, also verify the sight glass has filled
back up and there are no bubbles present in the sight glass. (The reason for checking whether the sight glass fills up is to
determine if the system was overcharged in the initial charging process.) Perform the sub-cooling measurement process
again. If the amount of sub-cooling is between 1˚ to 8˚F the system is charged correctly and there are no non-condensables
in the system. Remove the insulation and temperature sensor (if there was a piece of paper installed over the air inlet of the
condenser coil, remove that was well). If the sub-cooling remains at 10˚F or higher, this system has non-condensables in it.
All refrigerant will then need to be recovered and the evacuation and charging process must be re-performed.
Disconnecting Refrigerant Manifold Gauge Set from the Condensing Unit
Rotate the valve stems on the liquid line king and suction line service valves counter clockwise until the stem stops. The
valve is now in the back seated position. Disconnect the refrigerant hoses from the service valves. Re-install the service caps
as well as the valve stem caps on each of the valves. Tighten the valve stem caps on each using a crescent wrench.

LIQUID MEASURING THERMOSTAT SYSTEM
The CellarCool Series cooling units come equipped with a liquid temperature measuring thermostat. This incorporates
the following advantages:
Self-Calibrating Bottle Probe
The bottle probe contains a sensor chip, which communicates back and forth with the thermostat. This results in a
consistent temperature setting and accuracy.
1. Wine should be kept at a very precise, controlled temperature and humidity.
2. By measuring the liquid temperature rather than air, the unit will operate 75–80% of the time.
Setting Up The Bottle Probe:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Figure 1
Locate an empty wine bottle.
Fill 3/4 full with room temperature tap water.
Place bottle probe securely into bottle as seen in Figure 1.
Place bottle with probe level and to the side of the unit in your wine cellar.
To assure a consistent temperature, place bottle probe approximately 3 feet
away from the air output and not in the flow of the air.
It is recommended that the bottle be placed in a central location of your
wine cellar. Avoid pulling too much on the probe cord. It may become
disconnected resulting in limited functionality of the unit.
Note: The thermostat can be set between 50–67°F.
Remember: The CellarCool unit operates based on the temperature of the water.
Do not be misled by thermostats reading air temperature. The air temperature
in the cellar will be cooler than the liquid temperature of the wine while it is
reaching optimum balanced temperature.

CPSM Mode Press the “Set” and the “Down Arrow” buttons simultaneously, for 3-5 seconds, and
you will access the “Customer Preference Selection Mode” (CPSM). The CPSM allows
the customer to “Fine Tune” the Control Operating System to their applicable choice.
The following CPSM options are available for adjustment:
Fon – Humidity Management Enhancement: This parameter is normally set at 0,
which should provide adequate relative humidity for the cellar.
• An increase in this parameter will increase the Humidity Enhancement (%RH),
and a decrease in the parameter will decrease Humidity Enhancement (%RH).
• Adjustments should be made in increments of 5, with a maximum of 15, and a
minimum of 0.
• After any adjustment to Humidity Enhancement, you should wait a minimum
of three days before making any additional adjustments. This will allow the
cellar sufficient time to acclimate to the new setting.
Fof - Humidity Management Enhancement: This parameter is normally set at 15. This
parameter should not be adjusted, as it simply provides an OFF cycle time for the
fan, during the compressor OFF cycle. However, the parameter is located within the
CPSM as a convenience to the customer, should it need to be adjusted. CCT - Cellar
Pre-Chill Duration: This parameter is set to 6 hours, but can be changed between
0-23.5 hours.
Con/Cof – Compressor On time (Con) and Off time (Cof ) with a Probe 1 failure/
Alarm. These parameters are set at Con 40 min/Cof 10 min. In the event that there
is a Probe 1 failure/Alarm, the compressor/refrigeration system automatically
starts a predetermined ON/OFF cycle, which is controlled by the Con and the Cof
parameters. The customer can adjust these parameters to maintain the desired
Bottle temperature.

SYSTEM OPERATION WITH CELLARCOOL CONTROLLER
Initial Start-Up:
When power is applied to the unit, the control
will briefly display all symbols, and the Snowflake
Symbol will be displayed (if unit is calling for
cooling) fan symbol is displayed and the fan symbol
will be displayed. There may be a brief delay prior to
the evaporator fan turning on.
Low Ambient Conditions
If the condensing unit is installed outside (which will
allow the condenser to be exposed to low ambient
temperatures), the condenser fan may cycle on and
off. The purpose of the fan cycling is to maintain the
system high side pressure, which will ensure an adequate
refrigeration process.
Set Point:
The set point is set from the factory (CellarCool) at
55°. It can be adjusted by the customer between
50° and 70° in one degree increments.
Bottle Probe Failure Protection
In the event that a Bottle probe should fail, the APST (Advance Product Safety Technology) will automatically transition the Refrigeration cycle to a pre-determined time series
(based on detailed laboratory testing), which will ensure
that the product is kept within the safe range.
Cooling Operation:
Cooling is activated once the Air Probe senses
a temperature that is 4° greater than the set
point. The controller then energizes the Solenoid
Coil which activates the Solenoid Valve(s). The
unit provides cooling until the Air Probe senses
the set point. At this point the Solenoid Coil is
de-energized, suction pressure drops below 5
psig and the Low Pressure Switch kills power to
the compressor. If the FON function is enabled
the evaporator fan will continue to run for 1-15
minutes to re-evaporate any moisture from the
evaporator coil.
Remote Control Panel Keypad
The remote keypad is designed to give the user the ability
to monitor and change cellar conditions.
Humidity Features:
The FON parameter can be increased to allow the
evaporator fan to run for a longer period of time
after the compressor turns off, allowing moisture to
be re-evaporated into the cellar.
Anti Short Cycle
The Anti Short Cycle ensures that the unit will remain off
for a period of 5 minutes after the unit has reached the
set point to allow the pressure in the refrigeration system
to equalize prior to starting the compressor.
Anti Frost Cycle
The Anti Frost Cycle is a precautionary measure, as icing
or frosting of the coil does not occur during normal
operation. The system will go through a defrost cycle
every 4 hours. During the defrost cycle, the indoor fan
will provide air flow across the indoor coil, which will
evaporate any frost accumulation.

ACCESSORIES FOR COOLING UNITS
CellarCool offers accessories to enhance and customize your wine cooling unit.
Condensate Pump Kit
The condensate pump kit is designed as an automatic condensate removal pump for water dripping out of our
evaporator units’ drain line. The pump is controlled by a float/switch mechanism that turns the pump on when
approximately 2-1/4” of water collects in the tank, and automatically switches off when the tank drains to approximately
1-1/4”. The condensate pump kit allows the excess condensate to be pumped up to 20ft away from the unit.

1. allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or allow limitations on how

3. No one has any authority to add to or vary the limited warranty on this Product.
3. Maintenance Requirements
The End User is responsible for checking the coils on the condenser unit and vacuuming them every three months
to maintain them free of debris. It is the End User’s responsibility to clean off any accumulated dust, lint, or other
debris from the front and rear intake grills; failure to do this on a regular basis will restrict the airflow and may
affect the Product’s ability to function properly. Periodically cleaning the Product’s vents will help assure maximum
cooling efficiency. The drain tube must also be checked and kept clean and free of debris and mold to maintain
proper performance.
Mold is a natural living organism in the environment. It exists in the air in the form of microscopic spores that move
in and out of buildings through doors, windows, vents, HVAC systems and anywhere else that air enters. Once it is
discovered, mold must be addressed quickly and appropriately. Delayed or improper treatment of mold issues can
result in costly and reoccurring repairs. If the End User suspects a mold problem, it is always best to hire a qualified
and experienced mold remediation specialist.
4. Additional End User Costs And Responsibilities
Terms and conditions for replacing the Product that is being evaluated for limited warranty.
1. After evaluation by a certified HVAC/R technician and the Product is found to be un-repairable in the field,
contact CellarCool Customer Service to arrange for replacement under the warranty guidelines. When a
claim for warranty is submitted for a condenser skid, the End User must purchase a new condenser skid
from CellarCool at retail price. Upon installation of the new condenser skid by a certified HVAC/R Technician,
the HVAC/R Technician must complete the Installation Checklist and End User must submit the Installation
Checklist to CellarCool Customer Service for approval. The original condenser skid must be returned within
21 days to CellarCool for failure analysis. If the Installation Checklist is approved and the failure is evaluated
as defective and not installation error or other reason, the End User will be refunded for the cost of the
replacement skid. 2. If the Product failure is evaluated and it is determined that it is an installation error or other reason, all costs,
including shipping will be the responsibility of the End User.
The following items are not covered under any warranty and are the sole responsibility of the End User:
A. End Users should satisfy themselves that the Product they are purchasing is suitable for their particular
needs and requirements, and thus no responsibility will be placed with CellarCool for the End User’s
decisions in this regard.
B. End Users must assure that the product is installed by a certified HVAC/R technician. Failure to do so will
result in Voiding the Limited Warranty.
C. It is the End User’s responsibility to secure safe haven/storage for ANY AND ALL items that are being kept

the safety and preservation of the aforementioned items in the event that the environment becomes
unsuitable to maintain a proper storage environment.
D. End User is responsible for initial installation costs, including, but not limited to, labor costs and the cost of
any additional parts necessary to complete the installation.
