CellarPro 1800 Duct Intake Hood Cold Side #1932
We created this hood to allow our CellarPro 1800QT, XT and XTS cooling units to be installed directly above (as opposed to inside) the wine cellar.
Duct Intake Hood Cold Side for CellarPro 1800 Series (P/N 1932). This hood is designed to fit over the front of the cooling unit, and acts as a plenum to capture return air from the wine cellar. Two mounting brackets on either side keep the hood from moving around after installation.
When using this hood, the cellar must be located directly below the wine cooling unit. Two openings must be created in the ceiling of the wine cellar, one (using this hood) for one for return air and one (below the exhaust fan) for supply air to drop down directly into the wine cellar. Other than as described above, the cold side of 1800 cooling units must never be ducted.
PLEASE NOTE: The cooling unit MUST ALWAYS be installed in a conditioned environment when using this front intake hood. The risk is that the cold-side of the cooling unit, which is designed to be installed inside the cellar, will experience moisture condensation when the ambient environment is too warm and/or humid. Moisture condensation may damage the cooling unit's electrical components. This damage is not covered by our manufacturer's warranty.
We also recommend using our Remote Display/Control Kit #1603 when using our front intake hood outside of the cellar. The remote display/control kit will reduce, but not eliminate, the possibility of damage from moisture.
If moisture appears when on the cooling unit, it is important to insulate the front of the cooling unit asap, and dry and seal the bottle probe jack immediately.
We do not recommend using the front intake hood with our 1800QTL cooling unit.

Works as advertised, slightly bent
by Bob S
The unit works fine and was well installed. It was slightly bent in , looks like as the result of something pushing against it. Did not effect performance.
Unit arrived damaged
The unit arrived damaged and the customer care "suggested" me a $50 gift card to be spent at their store. Assuming they have a 20% gross margin, I only got $40 dollars to accept a damaged unit. Ridiculous
