TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE
Although each Vintage Keeper cooling unit has been carefully tested at every stage of manufacture, occasional problems
arise, the majority of which are due to rough or careless handling during shipping or installation. Other problems may
derive from improper cabinet assembly, power interruption or surge, low line voltage (less than your unit rating of 105V
or 240V), or failure to clean the unit regularly (see illustration below). The following may help you determine what the
problem may be; what steps you can take to correct it, and what further steps may be required. Additional Trouble-Shoot-
ing information and downloadable documents are available in the “Support” area of our web site:
Cleaning the coil
In order to provide maximum protection for your valuable wine collection, the following steps are highly advisable.
First and foremost, have your wine collection adequately insured. Second, install a battery-powered heat-sensitive alarm
to warn of any loss of cooling due to power interruption. Third, monitor your storage and ambient conditions on a regular,
daily basis. Fourth, install a high quality surge suppressor to protect against sudden power fluctuations. Fifth, clean the
unit as directed, on a regular basis, every 3 to 4 months vacuum the cooling unit coils (check our website for more info).
Sixth make sure to check water level in the
DRAIN CUP periodically and empty. Be advised, also, that Drobot-Vintage
Keeper cannot in any event be liable or responsible for incidental or consequential damages.

compensate for additional heat gain if any cabinet walls
receive direct sunlight
