Video #3 Wine Cellar Cooling Units – Technical Training
Hello! My name is Dan Phillips, owner and technical adviser for US Cellar Systems.
Earlier we had covered the wiring of the DC Controller and the evaporator coil for our wine cellar refrigeration units. Now, we’re going to cover a little bit of the operation of the wine cellar cooling digital controller. We have given it its full 10 minutes to time out on start up as could be indicated by looking at the little LED in the upper right hand corner which shows that it is now calling for the unit to be cooling a wine cellar.
The temperature displayed right now will be the temperature in the wine room. If you want to change or check your set point, you push the “i” button, by pushing and holding it in, it will show you what the set point or the temperature of the controller turns off at is set for. If you want to change this, you can use either the up or down buttons to increase the temperature in the wine cellar you want it to turn off at or decrease the temperature you want it to turn off at.
Wine Cellar Cooling Units – Don’t Run The Defrost Program!
After making these changes, you release the “i” button, give it 30 seconds, and the new program will be locked in. One thing you want to be careful about, the second button here. If you just push it in and hold it without using the “i” button you will put it into defrost. This is programmed with a 30-minute defrost and if you accidentally put it into defrost, it does have to timeout the full 30 minutes before it comes out of defrost.
Wine Cellar Cooling Units – Powering Down & the 10-minute delay
Now if you want to turn the system off, you can use the “x” button, push it, hold it in for a few seconds and it turns the system off. To put the system back on, again you just push and hold the “i” button. Everything will come back on. Again, you will have a 10-minute delay. It has to be off for at least 10 minutes before the system will start up again. This is to protect the compressor on start up, so you don’t get a short cycle and overload the compressor.
