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
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: Yes, the shelves are reversible. You don't have to remove any. The top and bottom shelves accommodate larger bottles anyway, and you can flip a wire shelf or two if you need more space. I have 27 bottles in mine now, including 11 pinot or champagne bottles. I only flipped one shelf.
I only drink and serve red wine... no white.
So is this wine refrigerator my best bet to store red wine only?
Terry on Nov 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can store red wine bottles but please the temperature range is 52 - 65°F. So it depends at which temperature you like your red wine.
What is the wire gauge of the electrical cord?
Colby M on Aug 30, 2015

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.

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?

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.
what is the decibel level of this unit when operating?
steve h on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to an app on my phone: from about one foot away, it's 10-15 DB. The maximum I could get, which is right next to it near the back is 30 DB. Hope that helps!
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: The air exhaust is through the back of the unit. The front is display and door only
Do the shelves slide out smoothly in order to access the wine bottles?
m t on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have two of these refrigerators and I love them but the shelves do not pull out easily. I have tags on every bottle so I do not need to pull them out.
What is the stainless???
Cindy on Jun 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Color is BLACK, door is black tinted glass, top and sides are black painted metal. I'm sure the metal is not stainless.
Am I correct that the new 28 bottle unit: - that was named "Gift of the Year" has a compressor and is therefore superior in its cooling power and consistency? And unlike this unit - where the fan runs pretty much 24x7 - the newer unit mentioned above will probably be more quiet?
JohnB on Nov 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No compressor - this is a thermo-electric unit. Pretty quiet operation.
The cooler came with a black, rectangular box, with tabs on the end, presumably to hook onto something. What is this and where does this go? Thank you!
Solomon K on Apr 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a drain reservoir. It hooks to the back of the fridge on the outside, in the cut out section.
How do you turn it off ?
George T on Dec 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Please call Wine Enthusiast at 800.648.6058 and choose option 2 to be connected to our technical department.
Am I required to be home for delivery?
Kevin A on Sep 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They do require someone to be there to accept the delivery, but the company that delivered my unit were very accommodating and flexible.
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.
is it possible to store red and white wines in this refrigerator? If so what setting do you recommed.?
Debbie R on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Debbie, yes you can absolutely store both in this refrigerator. Ideally you will want to keep this around 55 degrees for storage for both red and white wines.
Can this be used within a 3 sided space?
Gina K on Sep 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Should be able to! As long as there is an outlet in the back.

The unit is running, but the temperature remains higher than the setting? Made a rumbling sound a couple of weeks ago. Set temp up to
57 and registering 65. rumbling stopped.

I don't live in the US, however I go very often there. Do you guys think it's possible to dispatch it with my luggage? Or does it need any additional care to dispatch it?
Claudio on Sep 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The size and weight of the unit in the box, would be considered over weight and over sized. The airline cargo fees may be cost prohibitive.
Why do you need to remove the wine when away for 3 weeks or more?
Frank S on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are so worried, drink the precious liquids before leaving .
CONSTANCE on Jul 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The lowest temperature is 54 degrees.

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.
How do I set the upper/lower temperature zone for my red and white wines?
Flavia G on Feb 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I set the temp at 52. I find this is adequate. I remove the reds for approx 30 mins before opening. It gives the wine 15-30 mins to breath prior to drinking.It works very good for me.
Does this ship to Ca? Is it CEC compliant?
Kristine F on Dec 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No unfortunately this cellar is not available to ship in California.
I have a noisy fan as well. While trying to replace I noticed there is no insulation in the rear of the unit, but there are remnants of what looks like used to be insulation. Was there supposed to be insulation under the rear panel? Where do I get a fan that fits? This fridge has been a huge disappointment.

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 13, 2015
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
December 14, 2015
Good Enough for my needs
Ok, bought a Siena Wine Credenza (not here as it was cheaper with shipping elsewhere) but I called Wine Enthusiast to order the 2ea 28 bottle Silent Touchscreen fridges... they work well, though 52 degrees is a cold as it gets...and the fans are a tad noisy.

My problem is getting replacement fans... using the part number on the fan you can find many on the internet and locally at computer parts places but they do not fit at all.. so I called Wine Enthusiast, and ordered the fans since they have my order on file, yet I get the same fans I can buy elsewhere and thus do not fit.

I need replacement fans or I have to buy new fridges and these aren't even 2 years old yet. Sucks when you can't get the correct fan fro the place you bought the fridge.
July 12, 2016
Does what it says
Works great so far. I do wish I could dim the temperature display. It Is way too bright for me.

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.

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.

Easy setup, quick to desired temperature, silent and looks great.

Quiet, Works Great
We've had this baby for almost a year now. The most important thing to us is that it's quiet, as we live in an apartment. It's completely silent most times. When the fan kicks on, you can hear it, but it's a quiet hum and doesn't bother us at all. It looks very nice -- not at all cheap (we have the all-black front) -- and it can hold wide pinot noir and champagne bottles. We flipped a couple of the shelves upside down to make more space. It's now holding 27 bottles plus 2 thinner bottles that we use to preserve wine that's already opened. It does a great job of keeping the temperature steady. We keep it at 55 and we keep it full. If we run low on wine, we'll put water bottles or beer bottles in there to keep the temperature regulated.

My only complaint is the light. The inside light is completely useless. It doesn't illuminate anything. But the blue temperature light on the outside is so bright that it lights up the whole apartment at night. I think you could read by it! We have to cover it with a towel or close the bedroom doors.

I received this wine refrigerator as a wedding gift and couldn't be happier with it. It looks great, holds more than enough wine and is easy to set to the perfect temperature.
