How high is ideal to mount this unit for a 7'x7'x10'h wine room? If in the middle of wall I have to vent into adjacent pool equipment room. If it is okay to install 7.5-9'h on the wall, then I can install it in exterior wall...please advise
A shopper on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In my experience it creates an overall more even temp in your cellar if you mount the cooling unit as close to the ceiling as possible. If you rarely access your cellar or have two sets of doors with an air lock between it is less of an issue. I am combing through the cellar 3-4 days per week either editing, adding or (the best) subtracting so I need to add the cool air at the warmest point of the room to avoid a variance in temp. This is all assuming your shelving goes to the ceiling. If it stops at 5' from the floor having the unit above the top shelf of wine by 2.5+ feet should be fine. Hope this helps.
I own a 3000 and have lost my instruction manual . I need to know how to adjust the temp.

Will this unit cool down to 55 degrees a 70 square ft room this is 8 ft high ceiling and holds 700 bottles with 4/ 16 gallon oak bbls?
Gary S on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My room is smaller (roughly 30 sf) and holds less bottles (200), but in the 4 months since I've owned the unit it's worked quite effectively. In my experience, I've been quite pleased with the performance.
I have a finished basement , finished wine celler, I may replace breezeaire which site 6 inch about floor, with Nfinity 3000,
(1) how I am going to do the drain ? and how much water is generates in a day or a week?.
(2) can the exaust go outside the house through a 6" duck, that is already installed .
Mike on Dec 31, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mike,
The N'finity cooling system really should mount 3-6" from the ceiling only. The amount of condensation depends on several factors of the cellar. Please call one of our Wine Cellar Specialists @ 1-800-356-8466 to discuss your situation.

Thank you
i have a 100 sq ft wine closet. will the 3000 be ok?
neil h on Sep 6, 2016

I have the N"Finity 3000 in my small cellar in the basement of my home. In a couple of months it will be two years since I installed. it has worked flawlessly keeping temperature as set. You need to be aware that when it goes on it needs to vented into an open space as you do not want this area to get to warm. In my basement it vents into the laundry room which is always open. The unit is moderately noisy but it should not go on much if the room is well insulated. Also the dimensions you included for your closet are 100 sq feet, do not forget to measure the height of the room as the unit is good for a room up to 650 cubic feet. if your closet has a 6 foot ceiling then you will be at around 600 cubic feet and OK for the unit. When you install make sure you have a place to drain condensation on the venting side, a drain is ideal, if not a bottle that you have to empty every so often will have to do. Make sure your room is well insulated and you will be happy with this unit. Hope this helps and good luck.

What's the noise level of this unit? and Can the unit be vented to a nearby crawl space?
Jeffrey L on Oct 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have no db levels to give. Our wine cellar is in our basement directly below our living room. We do hear sound when the cooler turns on or off, but is quiet to our ears...not much different than when our hot water oil burning furnace is running. As far as venting into crawl space, the installation says the area that it vents to has to be more than the area of the wine cellar. Limiting factors would be the height of your crawl space...not to close to top or bottom, and air temp in crawl space during summer. The unit can only keep wine cellar 30 deg less than this temperature.
I see some answers to the mounting height that indicate the unit should be mounted 6" from the ceiling. The manual says the unit can be mounted as close as 1.5 inches from the ceiling. I'd like to mount it as close as 2" from the ceiling - will mounting the unit that close to the ceiling cause any issues?
Lou P on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think the unit would probably function best if it is 6" from the ceiling.
We ended up with a construction miscalculation (additional insulation) and our unit ended up about an inch from the ceiling. It has been in use for over a year and appears to be functioning well, keeping our wine seller at the proper temperature without any difficulties.
Can the Infinity 4200 be installed so that it is mounted on an exterior wall and venting through the exterior wall to the outside?
Dennis S on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not think so, at least not in our climate where we have four seasons. Its an excellent unit, does its job and no maintenance issues after 2 years but you would have to check with manufacturer. There are units designed for exterior walls but I'm not sure about this one.
Does know the decibel reading on the 3000?
Fran G on Jan 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fran, I do not have a decibel meter. The unit is fairly loud inside the wine cellar, but barely sounds at all outside the well-sealed door to our cellar. I can only hear it (barely) for maybe ten feet outside the door. Our wine cellar is next to our basement theater, and it doesn't bother us at all.
I have 3000 unit with drain ports front and back and I am utilizing the back drain port. I have never seen any water in the tubing nor the bucket. Yesterday water was dripping from the capped front drain port and when I removed the cap I got about 16 oz of water. I am worried that something is wrong with the design. I have blown through the tube in the back and seems like no restrictions. Has anyone experienced this problem? The unit is about 6 months old.
Chris on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have had mine working for about 6 or so months (back ported) and I have never seen water come out the back port either. I do not live at the house all the time so I am now worried that I may have a problem. I will check the front port next week and see what I
get. Can we follow up on this issue?
My cooling unit is about 2 years old, and it is leaking water inside of the wine cellar. I checked the back of it to make sure it is not clogged and the hose is fine. What can be the issue and how can I fix it quick? My wine racks have been affected by it and starting to show mold. Thanks!
aet h on Apr 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I just got my unit a few months ago and have not had that situation. I wonder if if is frozen up inside? Did you open it up? Does the cellar have high humidity? Maybe you need to turn it off for a while and see if that clears the problem up. Just a thought
Looking for a wine cooler for my cellar. Outside temps get into the high 90s sometimes. Which is the one I should get? Thanks
Edward S on Apr 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Infinity 3000 works well in our 600sf wine room. The room is in the basement, and while the outside ambient temperature where we live often reaches 90 degrees, the basement rarely gets above 70 degrees. The unit does a great job keeping the wine room at a consistent 55 degrees year round. We are extremely happy with the unit. If you have central air, the outside temperature, probably is not that important to your decision. Hope this helps.

Where is the drain located on the N'Finity 3000 unit?

How many AMPS does this require to run sufficiently?
Gabriele on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is suggested that you have a 20 amp dedicated circuit for this unit.
Can the unit be installed through a double wall that is 12" thick?
Bob on Aug 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The N'FINITY 3000 Wine Cellar Cooling Unit measures 17" deep, so it is deep enough to be installed in a 12" wall. However, strongly recommends consulting a Wine Storage Professional prior to installation to make sure you install the unit in the best wall and location for your room.
How much heat does this unit generate to the venting room? For example, if it is venting to an exhaust environment that maintains between 70 - 78 degrees, how much heat will it generate into that room?
Ryan on Jul 1, 2013
There are many factors that may affect this.
The room that it is venting into needs to be at least same size as the cooling capacity of the unit.
For the most part, the air coming off the back is approximately 85 degrees.
Please give one of our Wine Cellar Specialists a call @ 1-800-356-8466 to further discuss.
Thank you
Does this product come in a 220V version?
Flemming on May 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The N'FINITY 3000 Wine Cellar Cooling Unit is not offered in a 220 volt model. If you contact N'FINITY customer service at (800) 377-3330 they provide a free consultation with a wine storage specalist.

BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes please give us a call at 1-800-377-3330 and we can order this unit with the cord coming from the front.
Hi. I am finishing up my cellar and need a cooling unit. This unit looks good except I see there are several reviews complaining that it does not keep the cellar at a very stable temperature - some say up to 6 degree variation! Is that really the case with this unit. I am expecting stability within 1-2 degrees not 6. Please let me know the spec on this one in that regard. thanks!
Dwight on Jan 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This unit is designed to maintain a stable temperature and automatically adjust to ambient temperatures outside the room with a plus or minus 30 degree differential (this means the temperature outside the wine cellar environment can differ by up to 30 degrees of the temperature the unit is set for - if set to 55, the outside should not exceed 85 degrees). You should also keep in mind that you should not use this in an area larger than the recommended square footage of 650 sq. feet. Also, N'FINITY offers a warranty of 2 years on parts and labor and 5 years on the compressor. which exceeds the length of most other manufacturers' warranties. You may also want to discuss this concern with one of Wine Enthusiast's storage consultants.
The manual mentions the use of "pan tabs" containing quaternary ammonium chloride. The pan seems to get quite nasty between cleanings so I was thinking of finding some. Interestingly, WE does not list nor does any other wine cellar site. I found some on Amazon but the tablet makes 1 gal (that'd be a LOT of condensate). Does anyone use drain tabs? If so, where do you purchase them? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

We need to maintain higher humidity than outside air here in Wyoming. Would this unit provide any humidificaton?
Ptichfork on Dec 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These cooling units do not dry out the air like an airconditioner but if you are in a very dry climate like Arizona,Nevada, Colorado etc... you will need to purchase a unit that has the capability to add humidity which this unit does not.
I have an older KW-4200b; which still works well. However, I occasionally get error code "df" on the display, but don't know what it means.

Any help with this?


moskma on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Regarding the error code, it would be best to call in and speak to our technical department at 800 648 6058 option 2.

Much Improved over Grand Cru
This is my 3rd cooling unit for my cellar. The two previous where Grand Cru's. The 1st lasted 5 yrs, the 2nd only 4 yrs. This unit is much quieter, less vibration and appears sturdier than the other Grand Cru's.
It's installed in my basement, my living room is directly above and we can not hear it operate. The Grand Cru we had before (4200) was poor in every way, would never buy again.
So far so good with this N'Finity, just hope it lasts longer.

Failed within 3 years
The unit worked fine for the first 3 years, but now won't cool. Likely a compressor issue. Wine Enthusiast wouldn't stand behind the 5-year warranty. Time to try another brand from a different website.
January 21, 2016
Response from Wine Enthusiast
Hi Mark, If the issue is indeed a compressor issue that is covered for 5 years by the manufacturer's warranty. I will have them email you directly in order to trouble shoot the issue and resolve accordingly. Many thanks for your comment

Great Unit, Easy to Install
Delivery was faster than promised and in perfect condition.
April 27, 2011
Good documentation and works great
The documentation was available online so that our contractor could start prior to the unit arriving to build the vapor barrier and other requirements that are crucial to a successful wine cellar. The unit cannot vent outside so we vent it into a hallway - it is a little loud for this but ok. It is working great at keeping our treasured wine in perfect condition!
January 2, 2012
not bad for the money
runs quiet. Temperature does fluctuate 5-6 degrees.
October 31, 2012
Exactly what I was looking for.
Everything was as advertised. Other reviews complaining of noise are unfounded. Works great and noise is not an issue. Customer service and follow-up call after placing order to make sure the product would meet my needs were great and beyond my expectations.

January 21, 2016
Response from Wine Enthusiast
Hi Scot, this unit should really not be that loud and is quieter in terms of decibels than any other in it's price range. I will have someone contact you directly to troubleshoot as maybe there is an issue with the installation or that particular unit. Thank you
