Less margin for error--reviews elsewhere have flagged Wine Enthusiast cellars for problems.

Our first wine cooler was similar to this and worked very well. We upgraded to a larger cooler but still have this firs one. Now, our kids want one and since we have been very pleased with the quality of ours, decided to get them one too.

I recently moved from 91 CPW to 1214 Fifth Ave (a much smaller apartment). For 15 years, I had a large Eurocave that worked beautifully. I wouldn't think of owning any other refrigerating unit.

Do the shelves slide out smoothly in order to access the wine bottles?
m t on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The shelves do slide out 3". However, I am not happy with my purchase of this wine refrigerator. The following is a note I sent to the Wine Enthusiast, from which I revived a reply the wine refrigerator is our of warranty.
----
I am looking forward to you being able to help me with one of your wine refrigerator that I am dissatisfied with. I recently purchase the wine refrigerator but since I set it up it has been a nuisance with the fans cutting in and out constantly making a noise that is irritating to the tranquil space in my living room. Other than keeping, the wine chilled there is nothing else I like about it, the door scrapes over the carpet when it is opened; the blue lights on the control panel are too intense. Then just last week one of the LCD lights in the temperature display has gone out.

Is there any way I could return this wine refrigerator for a refund? I would be very grateful for any consideration you can give to this request.
What is the wire gauge of the electrical cord?
Colby M on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Colby,

Not sure why you need to know, but it is standard appliance cord. I suspect it is 12 or 10 gauge wire. Nothing special. Does the job nicely.

Do Pinot Noir and other larger bottles fit? Or are the shelves reversible in order to fit larger bottles?
eb1973 on Dec 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For larger bottles (Pino or Chard) top or bottom shelf works best and if you have many larger bottles it might serve you to rearrange to shelves to acommodate only 24 bottles.
Where does the heat come out? The front or the back? It appears to be the back but there is NO diagrams. I need any warm air to flow out the back of the unit to an open space. Thank you.
Steve B on Oct 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question, the wine cellar air exhausts through the back and rear sides of the unit.
Hello! I just received this wine cooler and plugged it into an outlet per the instruction manual. The touchscreen has not lit up. Is there an on button?
BeckyH. on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. There is no on/off button. Supposed to automatically go on. One question for you, does your cooler constantly make a humming sound like a fan is constantly running?
We have an 18" deep bar, does this unit require any additional depth besides the 17 3/4" for installation?
Jackie L on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think you should be OK, but are we talking about the same dimensions? My cooler is 17 3/4 deep and 20 3/4 wide. I would also think a bit about whether that 1/4 inch allows for some circulation to get rid of any heat buildup.

Finally, although advertises=ed as "silent," I find that my unit is quiet, but not silent.
I only drink and serve red wine... no white.
So is this wine refrigerator my best bet to store red wine only?
Thanks.
Terry on Nov 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello Terry,
Absolutely, all wine actually stores at the same temperature of 53-57 degrees.
You can put both your red and white in this cellar.
Thank you
WHAT IS THE LOWEST TEMPERATURE FOR THIS WINE COOLER?
CONSTANCE on Jul 30, 2014

What are the interior dimensions for this 28-bottle wine refrigerator?
Nick on Jun 11, 2014

Does this unit have wheels on the bottom so it can be easily moved around?
melissa on Feb 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No Wheels. Wine should not be moved around.
I have 2 of these - can they be stacked?
Lauren on Jun 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No, not on each other .However, if you build a support shelf approx 3 to 4 " above the bottom unit and leave the proper clearances around it that would work. The units needs air all around them.
Will this fridge work in Tokyo, Japan?
BG on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This fridge is built to work off a 110 volt 60 hz current. If that is what the electrical current is in Tokyo you will be in luck. If it is not, then this will not work without a converter.
What is the humidity level of this unit?
Tamisha on Dec 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These are a thermoelectric cooling system, they do not maintain humidity. They only maintain a steady storing temperature. Our Eurocave wine cabinet offer humidity maintenance along withe our N'Finity HDX line
The unit always seems to be running, and is never completely silent. Is this normal?
B4 on Dec 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes that is normal. What you are hearing is the fan. The thermoelectric units use a thermostat and fan to control the temperature.
Is there any problem with putting a DVD, cable box, and TV set (flatscreen LCD) on top of this unit?
bj on Mar 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The only issue may be if the heat that comes off the DVD,cable box and TV has an impact on the air surrounding the unit. Remember this unit shoiuld be placed in an area that does not exceed 77 degrees. Just make sure you leave 3-4" of ventilation on the sides,top and back of the unit so the heat can exhaust from the unit.
Hello
I plan to fit this wine cooler in a boxed cabinet with open spaces underneat 2.5"H x 14"W x 24"D (note: Front side open to the room)...
And I have spaces around unit 3"top, 1" each side and 3" back side.
So it will be Good for air circulation?
Also your 2 back fans are flow out or suck air inside the unit?

Thx
M
Mitch on Jan 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. Although we highly recommend that any thermoelectric unit be freestanding, as long as you leave 4" all the way around the unit, the 28 should be fine in terms of operation. Regarding the two back fans, they are blowing the warm air away from the unit(exhaust). If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us at 800 356 8466. Thank you again.
how many Kw per month does one unit consumed?
fluffy.. on Jul 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. It is in the range of 40-ish kwh/ month, depending on how cold the cooler is, how hot the house is, and how many times the door is opened. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us at 800 356 8466. Thank you again.
Can I use this in Japan?
kimmy on May 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Hello Kimmy,
The silent units run off a standard 110 3 prong outlet.
You may or may not need some time of converter. Please contact our technical department @ 1-800-648-6058 and press option 2 if you have any further questions.
Thank you
Can I put this under a counter ?
g on May 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The 28 Bottle is not made for a built in application, it does require two or three inches of air space all around it. Please call 1-800-377-3330 for assistance on a built in unit for your application.
The manual states that the ambient temperature should be between 77 and 80.6 degrees. Is this correct? The website states that 77 degrees is the maximum ambient. Which of these is correct?
Ted on Dec 3, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. While the 28 bottle can handle up to 80 degrees, our recommendation is locate the unit in an air conditioned space where ambient temp will not exceed 77 degrees. I hope this clears things up and if you have any further questions, feel free to contact a Storage Consultant at 800.377.3330. Thank you again.
Does the touchscreen allow you to lock the door?
null on Nov 13, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The 28 bottle touchscreen does not have a lock, however the 28 bottle with the stainless steel trim does. Any other questions please call 800-377-3330.

Thanks
I noticed a few drops of water in the center of the unit which is draining to the water box. Is this expected and how often do I need to drain/clean the water box? How do I clean the water box, it seems attached to the unit.
Eric on Sep 19, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Condensation is to be expected in the unit to help maintain a moist cork. We recommend wiping the bottom of the unit about every 4 to 6 months. It is not necessary to empty the water box in the back of the unit, this condensation should evaporate into the air. If you have additional questions please call out Technical department at 1-800-648-6058 and a rep will be happy to answer any other questions. Thank you for your question today.
Could it come with wheels or canwheels be added for mobility?
null on Jul 25, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, the unit does not come with wheels as an option.

Wine Refrigerator
This refrigerator is quiet and seems to keep the temperature that I have chosen. The size is not small or too large for the amount of wines that I have. But I am repeating the most important aspect of this refrigerator is that it is quiet.

Extremely Noisy
Received this cooler as a gift for Christmas so i've been using it at my house since it arrived January 2015 and can say that this is a really loud cooler.

Not quite sure how this product qualified to have the word 'silent' in it's title, but can verify that mine is not.
July 12, 2015
Great product at a great price
Our new cooler is used as a storage facility with temperature control. We use it for our whites.
It is very quiet'.A big plus since we live in a condo with limited space.
We had a smaller unit from Wine Enthusiast that worked very well until a circuit board died. Rather than repair the unit, we decided to purchase a larger cooler from Wine Enthusiast.
The new unit only has a single temperature zone setting. Our old one had two zones.. Sadly, we use the old unit as a storage facility that now has only one temperature control that cannot be changed. It is perfect for our reds.

Nice looking
It's nice looking and is working just fine so far, one week, but the construction is a little sub par on the back panel. Of course, no one can see the back, but I wished it wasn't wavy.

Not bad for the money
Only had it for 3 weeks so not sure about the effect on our electric bill. I wouldn't describe it as "silent" but it's in the basement so not an issue. As with most wine racks some odd shaped bottles do not fit but overall it is just as expected. The biggest problem I had was that the delivery company only delivers Monday-Friday during business hours and delivery required a signature. Unless you don't have a job this is a big problem since I also couldn't go pick it up myself during those hours. The delivery company would only tell you the day of delivery which 4 hour block of time they would deliver. This would've been a deal breaker for me if I had known it in advance. The customer service folks at Wine Enthusiast helped me out by allowing the delivery company to leave it on my porch without a signature. Otherwise I wouldn't've been able to ever get it without taking time off work. The delivery company said the only way they would promise to deliver at a certain time would cost an extra $75. Guess they only deliver to retired people and housewives :-)

Shelves are a little tight
Other than that, it seems to be working great. We've had it less than a month so there isn't much else to report.

Works Great
Bought the large wine credensa a year ago with 2 of these units one on each end and the wine drawers in the middle.

Work fine, but now a fan is going out and it's loud... need to find some replacement fans and stock up on them
