Breezaire Cooling Unit Issues
Breezaire wine cooling units are designed to turn on when the thermostat registers 2° F ABOVE the temperature set point, and turn off when the thermostat registers 2° F BELOW the temperature set point. For example, if the set point is 60° F, the Breezaire cooling unit is designed to turn on at 62° F and turn off at 58° F.
When a large number of bottles are loaded in the wine cabinet, the Breezaire wine cooling unit will run continuously until the temperature inside the wine cabinet, including the thermal mass of wine bottles, reaches 2° F below the set point.
During hot weather conditions and in extreme environments, the performance of the cooling unit may become degraded until temperatures cool down. Breezaire wine cooling units can cool a maximum of 25° F below the temperature of the air at the top of the wine cabinet. For example, when the temperature above the wine cabinet is 85°, the cooling unit will not cool below 60° inside the wine cabinet. Therefore, it is important to select a temperature set point that is achievable given the temperature in the ambient environment.
Good airflow through the condenser coils is essential to the performance of the cooling unit. The coils (like the radiator in your car) have fins, with small gaps between them. The gaps, over time, can become clogged with airborne dust and lint. This condition will impede heat transfer through the coils, and ultimately lead to warmer temperatures inside the cabinet. The warm conditions inside the cabinet will keep the unit running for long periods, until the set temperature on the thermostat has been reached.
During hot weather conditions, or when the cooling unit has restricted air flow (eg from dirty coils), the wine cooling unit may run continuously as it tries to maintain the desired temperature inside the wine cabinet.
