The WM-1500HTD Wine Cooling unit represents our latest innovation in climate control and has a capacity of up to 90 cubic feet. This self-contained unit not only controls the temperature in your cabinet but also moderates the humidity to a much greater degree than previous models. The new design has also been optimized for better distribution of cool air. Wine-Mate Cooling Systems are long-lasting, reliable cooling units assembled to the highest quality standards. This unit features humidity and temperature digital control using innovative technology. An oversized evaporator provides subtle cooling, with tube-axial fans for both the condenser and evaporator. Extra insulation is provided for both thermal and noise isolation. HTD evaporator units have a special coil coating and provide two-way air supply for better operation. The 1500HTD has a robust housing and the grill size has been optimized for safety and easier cleaning. The Wine-Mate 1500HTD is a self-contained, ready-for-use cooling system with easy installation. Options: Multiple exhaust options for top or rear hot air exhaust.

Wine-Mate cooling systems are also perfect for storing fine fur, cigars, leather goods, chocolate and salami! For an additional cost, Wine-Mate systems can be customized for your exact storage needs - please call for more information!

  • TEMPERATURE: The WM-1500-HTD cooling unit is designed and used to provide a stable temperature between 50~65 °F for a properly insulated and sized space.
  • AMBIENT TEMPERATURE RANGE: The ambient temperature range for WM-1500-HTD should not be higher than 78°F or lower than 50°F in order to operate properly.
  • If the exhaust ambient temperature exceeds 78°F, one size larger unit must be used.
  • HUMIDITY CONTROL: The refrigerated space will maintain humidity within the range of 50~75% RH. We use an innovative method to provide additional humidity.
  • WM-1500-HTD cooling unit can only adjust fan run time for humidity, not speed. Adjust evaporator fan running time through the control program to adjust humidity.
  • REFRIGERANT: Uses R134a refrigerant which is considered environmentally friendly

Wine Bottle Probe & Digital Control Panel

The probe provides an accurate reading of the temperature of your wine, and this easy-to-use digital control panel makes it simple to change settings.
You will have the following advantages of using a bottle probe.
1) Air temperature in the cabinet may fluctuate, but the wine temperature in the bottle is constant.
2) You can put a cooling unit in a full wine cabinet and show both the air temperature and bottle temperature.

Note: This is for the digital control panel as this would be used for a front exhaust unit (shown above). The power cord itself stays in the same location for front exhaust.


  • Standard rear exhaust with the option to upgrade to top exhaust.
  • Add the Wine Bottle Probe to receive the most accurate reading of your wine's temperature. The Wine Bottle Probe measures the temperature of the liquid inside the bottle to ensure your wine is kept at the ideal temperature and plugs directly into your cellar cooling system.
  • FOR THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS, call to order:  1-800-777-VINO (8466).
  • Standard left side power cord with the option to upgrade to the rear or front cord for an additional fee 
  • Mounting brackets are available for an additional fee.
  • Add the Energy Saving & Quick Chilling upgrade to a digital temperature control of Wine-Mate cooling system.
    1) Energy Saving enables the compressor to run less time in certain circumstances to save energy by increasing the set-point. To activate the Energy Saving mode, turn on the switch.
    2) Quick Chilling enables the compressor to run continuously without stopping for a period of preset time for pull-down cooling. To activate Quick Chilling press and hold the UP icon for more than 3 seconds. To end Quick Chilling press and hold the UP icon for more than 3 seconds again.

Note: Extra air filter is not recommended for models of 2500 and below since it may restrict air flow. Instead, cabinet grill is used as a deterrent and protection from dust. However, the filter and frame can be attached to the wall grill and the filter will only cover the air intake portion of the grill.

If there are windows or if the cabinet is not located inside the home at the proper ambient temperature, the bottle coverage capacity and cubic feet will need to be reduced.

Wine~Mate cooling units are available in rear or top exhaust, but Vinotemp cabinets are available in rear, front, top or side vents depending on how the cooling unit is installed.
