Dripping Breezaire Cooling Unit

My Breezaire Cooling Unit is Dripping

Excess moisture inside wine cellars will create condensation that collects in the drip pan of the cooling unit, and may need to be drained. Excess moisture can occur when the cooling unit runs constantly, when the temperature setting is too low relative to the ambient environment, and/or when are is leaking from the ambient environment into the wine cellar. If a wine cellar isn't properly sealed, condensation will form on the cold evaporator coils inside the cooling unit, in the same way that condensation forms on a glass of iced tea on a warm summer day. If your wine cooling unit starts dripping, follow the instructions below:

  1. Unplug the cooling unit.
  2. On the underside of the cooling unit is a black drain plug, about 3” back and 4” over from the right hand corner. Rest a shallow dish or pie tin on the racks below the cooling unit, pull the drain plug, and drain out the melted water.
  3. Return drain-plug and restore power to the unit.
  4. Clean the condenser coils
  5. Raise the temperature set-point of the cooling unit.
  6. Make sure that the doors are sealing properly against the wine cabinet.
  7. Read our troubleshooting guide to see why the cooling unit is running constantly and how to reduce its cycle times.
