Dual Zone Operating Instructions


Dual Zone Operating Instructions 



Overview
The left side of the wine cabinet is the colder temperature zone, with a factory setpoint of 45°F, and is designed to maintain an average temperature of 45.5°F. This zone is controlled by a bottle probe (supplied), which should be placed in a bottle filled with water and alcohol (90/10), and racked in the center of the zone. The jack end of the bottle probe should be plugged into the jack on the left side of the cooling unit, near the power receptacle. Please note: the temperature displayed on the cooling unit shows the liquid temperature in the left zone.

The right side of the cabinet is the warmer temperature zone, with a factory setpoint of 53°F, and is designed to maintain an average temperature of 55°F. To view the temperature in this zone, press and release the left/middle button on the controller (shown as a melting snowflake icon). After three seconds, the display will revert back to the temperature in the left zone.

Power On/Off

Press "Power On/Off" (bottom/right) to turn the unit on and off. This button has a "sun" and "moon" icon.

When the "Compressor On" indicator light is on (Row 1 Snowflake), the Compressor is running.

When the "Fan On" indicator light is on (Row 1 Fan) the Fan is running.


Digital Display

The temperature displayed on the control indicates the liquid temperature as measured by the bottle probe in the colder zone on the left. To display the temperature of the warmer zone on the right, press and release the left/middle button on the controller (shown as a melting snowflake icon). After three seconds, the display will revert back to the temperature in the left zone.


Set Button

The cooling unit is factory preset with a Set Point of 45°F and a Temperature Differential of 1°F (for use with a bottle probe) in the left zone.  This means that the cooling unit will turn on when the bottle temperature rises above 46°F (45°F + 1°F), and turn off when the bottle temperature falls below 45°F.

The cooling unit is factory preset with a Set Point of 53°F and a Temperature Differential of 4°F for an average air temperature of 55°F in the warmer zone on the right.  This means that the cooling unit will turn on when the air temperature in the right zone rises above 57°F (53°F + 4°F), and turn off when the air temperature falls below 53°F.

To view the left and right zone set points, page through the display using the "Set" button on the lower left of the controller. 

  • Press the “Set” button once, and "St1" is shown. 
  • Press the "Set" button again, and the left zone set point value is displayed. 
  • Press the "Set" button again, and "St2" is shown.
  •  Press the "Set" button again and the right zone set point is displayed.
To change the zone set points:
  • Press the “Set” button for three seconds until a blinking "St1" is shown on the display.
  • Press the "Set" button again to see the left zone set point.
  • Press the “Up” or “Down” button to raise or lower the left zone setpoint.
  • Press the “Set” button to confirm.  The number will blink three times and the display will revert to the right zone setpoint, indicated by "St2" on the display.
  • Press the "Set" button again to see the right zone set point.
  • Press the “Up” or “Down” button to raise or lower the right zone setpoint.
  • Press the “Set” button to confirm.  The number will blink three times and exit to the main display.

To change the Temperature Differential, see the Advanced Instructions in the Owner’s Manual.


Quick Chill Button

To activate the "Quick Chill" mode, press the "Up" button for three seconds.

To deactivate "Quick Chill", press "Quick Chill" button for three seconds again.

The "Quick Chill" indicator (Row 3) light will turn on when the cooling unit is in "Quick Chill" mode.

In the "Quick Chill" mode, the cooling unit will run continuously for 6 hours (or until the bottle probe temperature registers 45°F). This mode is useful after loading "warm" bottles in the cabinet.


Up and Down Buttons

To view the "High Temp" recorded by the cooling unit in the left zone, press the "Up" button once.

To view the "Low Temp" recorded by the cooling unit in the left zone, press the "Down" button once.

To reset the "High Temp" or "Low Temp", press the "Set" button for three seconds while "Hi" or "Lo" is displayed. "RST" will blink three times to indicate confirmation.


Auto Defrost Mode

The cooling unit checks the temperature of the evaporator coils every two hours and if necessary initiates an auto-defrost cycle. When the cooling unit is in auto-defrost mode, the "Auto-Defrost" Indicator light (Row 2) will turn on.
