Placement and Maintenance of Vintage Keeper Wine Coolers ?

  • All Vintage Keeper wine cellars are for freestanding use only because the venting is mounted at the back of the cabinets. A minimum of 4 inches clearance is needed from wall so that the warm are can be driven out and dispersed freely./li>
  • Make sure the floor where you place the cooler is level so the doors close correctly.
  • Vintage Keeper wine coolers must be placed indoor where ambient temperature doesn’t exceed 80 ° F (27 °C) and humidity level is between 50 – 80 %.
  • These cabinets weren’t designed and manufactured to withstand greater fluctuations in ambient temperature. So do not place your Vintage Keeper wine cooler in garage, basement room, attic, laundry room or in any non-climatized unventilated room. If the cooler is in a room where temperature often goes above 80 °F, that will cause the cooler unit to work overtime resulting in increased electricity bill.
    For wine storage appliances designed to operate within harsher conditions check out EuroCave wine coolers.
  • Occasionally vacuum the evaporator coils to get rid offdust.
  • The coolers plug into normal residential outlets: 115 V/15 Amp. The power outlet must be a dedicated, grounded, separately fused line.

Consumer Complaints

Unfortunately many users of Vintage Keeper wine cabinets have reported problems and that they’re not satisfied with the product.

The most serious problem experienced is that the cooling unit breaks down and needs replacement after 1-2 years. The result of the low price is that lower quality materials are used for the construction of the cabinet (the door starts to sag, lock starts to dislodge).
