This is a completely awesome unit. Works perfectly and was easy to install.

I'm only sorry that I purchased a wine cellar needing this level of cooler replacement after only 2 years.

I have a wine storage area that vents to the crawl space can I rotate the unit so the back is pointing down? Will the drain pipe work if I do that?
Floyd W on Aug 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Since the drain handles moisture from the coil which is vertical at the front of the unit, it is located below and just lightly behind the coil. There is likely a contoured drip pan inside the housing under the coil to direct the condensation to the drain. Rotating the unit 90 degrees so the coil is on top of the unit and the drain along side the coil instead of below it will likely result in unpredictable drainage or retention of moisture inside the housing. It might be possible to mount the unit horizontally with a 90 degree duct to the crawl space. My unit vents to the room where the storage cabinet is located. Living in the South, there is significant condensation in summer.
will this unit require a condensate drain?
ron m on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Likely, but depends on where you live. In northern California I don't have a drain but in the summer with 50-60% humidity I need to empty the 1.5 quart catch bin I put under the unit drain about once per week to keep it from overflowing. In the winter when the unit doesn't work so hard I almost never need to drain it.
Can this replace a broken Wine-Mate 2500CD, that was in my vinotemp 440 bottle Cellar
Thanks
Dan the wine Guy on Sep 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I would need to know the size of the cutout of the Wine Mate 2500CD unit.
This can cool a cabinet that is upto 100 cubic ft
What is the warranty for this item?
Daniel on Sep 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This unit has a 2 yrs parts and labor warranty. If you have further questions please call us at 1-800-356-8466.
Is this product or any other CEC certified (Calif.Energy Commission)?
I need it for a space 300sf.
Thanks.
Constance on Jul 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. The RCU can not handle 300 square feet. I would recommend that you call in and speak to a Storage Specialist to determine the best unit for your application. Regarding the CEC certification, cooling units normally do not apply for these ratings. Thank you again.
I would like to attach a drain system to the drain port tube located on the bottom of the unit. It is a threaded tube but I cannot locate the pipe dimension. Does anyone know what size female fitting would fit?
Steven on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: ¼" NPT
I have a closet of 100 CU FT. Can this unit work? Or can you recommend a unit?
Liang on Feb 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This unit cools up to 100 cubic feet and will need to be mounted on the wall and exhaust out from the back to an interior space of equal or larger size.
Is this unit a good replacement for a Vintage Keeper 220? My cooling unit died a while ago
scott on Dec 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes this unit is the appropriate unit to replace the cooling unit for the Vintage Keeper and the BYO.
The Specifications on your website show a 30 degree temperature Differential (max temp of 85 degrees for optimal cooling), but the manual lists a 20 degree temperature differential (max temperature of 75 degrees for optimal cooling). Will this unit work with a 30 degree temperature differential?
Alan on Sep 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Please follow the manufacturer guidelines of a 20 degree temperature delta. Thank you.
I have an old Vintage Keeper 500 with the Koolspace 300 unit. The cooler is failing after about 8 years. It's seems this would be a good replacement but does the hole need to be modified to fit or mount this unit?
JD on Sep 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You should not have to modify the hole to get this unit to work,
Two questions:
1 the space I'm trying to condition is 1200 cubic feet. Is this unit appropriate for that size.
2 can I vent this unit to the exterior as long as its in a protected space. I'm in the Boston area so the unit wouldn't need to run presumably during the winter
thanks
andy on Feb 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, the unit needs to 1500 cubic ft. cooling capacity so it can cool a 1200 cubic ft room.
Only extreme units can go outside and split systems
i have a vinotheque 320 wine fridge that no longer chills.
it has a whisper cool 1200 unit now.

bob on Dec 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hello Bob,
The RCU 1200 can serve as a replacement. However, you may need to modify the cabinet for it to fit. Please call one of our Wine Cellar Specialists @ 1-800-356-8466 to further discuss.
Thank you
How much maintenance does the unit need?
