Installer’s Instruction
Federal law requires that WINE-MATE split cooling systems be
installed by an EPA certified refrigeration technician.
WINE-MATE split system is shipped as components and is ready for use only
after a certified refrigeration technician has properly installed, charged and tested
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 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 the lines
are installed, the system must be pressure tested. If no leaks are found,
evacuate and charge system with R134A. Refrigerant amount will vary
depending on the length of line set.
1. Condensing Unit
•
•
•
Place the condensing units WM-150SCU and 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.
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 45 °F (optional low ambient kit for 20 °F).
Leave minimum 5 feet clearance for the exhaust side and leave minimum
1 foot clearance for the fresh air intake side.
2. Evaporator Unit
•
•
•
The WM-15SFCW and 25SFCW evaporator units shall be installed for
wall mount with the air supply on the top and air return on the bottom.
Supply and return air flow from the evaporator unit shall be unobstructed
for at least 1 foot.
There is a gravity drain line and the unit shall be installed level or with a
slight angle toward the drain connection. If rise-up is needed, a
condensation pump must be used.
3. Air Sensor
•
The air sensor can be located in the wine room or the return air area, but
not the supply air area.
4. Refrigeration Piping and Charging
NOTES: ALWAYS USE THE SUPERHEAT AND SUBCOOLING,
PRESSURE READINGS TO CHARGE REFRIGERANT PROPERLY, THE
LISTED CHARGES ARE FOR REFERENCE ONLY.

The installation order starts from condensing unit (including the receiver,
discharge valve), liquid line filter-drier, moisture-liquid indicator/sight glass,
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 condensing unit.
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 sight
glass.
The evaporator’s constant pressure expansion valve is set around 3840°F at factory. This pressure setting gives a dew point to maintain the
humidity for storing wine.
The superheat at the evaporator unit shall be around 9-18°F under low
and high load at 75°F ambient temperature.
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.
If the superheat is low, then decrease the evaporator suction pressure by
turning the hex nut (5/16”) counter-clockwise.
Low side pressure: around 33-35 psig
High side pressure: 130-150 psig at 75 -90 °F ambient temperatures

NOTES:
1) THE VALVE CONNECTION SIZES OF CONDENSING UNIT AND
THE LINE CONNECTION SIZES OF EVAPORATOR UNIT ARE NOT
NECESSARY THE SAME AS THE ABOVE SPECIFIED LINE SIZES.
2) IF THE CONDENSING UNIT IS INSTALLED ABOVE THE
EVAPORATOR UNIT, USE THE SUCTION LINE ONE LISTED SIZE
SMALLER.

NOTES: THE VALVES MUST BE IN THE MIDDLE POSITIONS TO READ
PROPERLY.

8. Use of the adjustable low pressure control (if applicable)
Cut out = 5 psig; Cut in = 25 psig; Differential = 20 psig
It may need to adjust the setting in the field to get the right cycle time.
