  • Can the temperature alarm be changed to a door alarm?
  • Can the door alarm be changed to a temperature alarm?
  • Can a door alarm be added to the WS-30 if there is not already one on the unit?

Answer:

In 2016 there was a production change to the alarm feature on the WS-30 Wine Storage units. Starting with this production change the alarm feature became a door alarm; whereas prior to this change the alarm feature was a temperature alarm. It is not possible to convert a door alarm to a temperature alarm or a temperature alarm to a door alarm.

  • Temperature Alarm:
    • There is an audio/visual temperature alarm in a WS series unit that can be enabled to warn a customer of temperature problems.
    • To enable the alarm, press and release the key with the bell icon on it. If the alarm is enabled, the BELL ON indicator will illuminate.
    • To disable this feature, press and release the key with the bell icon again, and the BELL ON indicator will de-energize.
    • NOTE: If the alarm is enabled and temperature problems are experienced, the BELL ON indicator will flash and the alarm will beep. There are also provisions in a WS series unit to allow for the alarm feature to be tied into a home’s security alarm system.
  • Door Alarm:
    • An audible chime indicates door or drawer has been left ajar for more than 60 seconds.
    • To enable the alarm, press and release the key with the bell icon on it. If the alarm is enabled, the BELL ON indicator will illuminate.
    • To disable this feature, press and release the key with the bell icon again, and the BELL ON indicator will de-energize.
