TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY CONTROL
Le Cache Loft 2400 Wine Cabinet (P/N 2334). Featuring total storage of 286 bottles, including racked storage for 256 bottles and bulk storage for 30 bottles, our 2400 Series wine cabinets are sized for small spaces.
Le Cache wine cabinets maintain ideal temperature and humidity conditions for long-term storage and aging of fine wines. Wine cabinets are different than wine coolers and refrigerators, which don't manage humidity conditions and therefore aren't recommended for long-term storage of wine.
Design: Designed for sophisticated wine collectors seeking simplicity and style, our Loft Series is ideally suited for modern dwellings. The tinted double-paned glass door is framed to showcase fine wine collections in their entirety. This wine cabinet is designed to be placed in a closet or enclosed space, includes our front-vent hood and grill, and is designed to be built-in.
Key features include:
- Tinted double-paned glass door
- Sealed seams and premium insulation
- All-wood Universal racking easily accommodates large-format wine bottles (including most Champagne bottles)
- The door can be hinged on either side and is available in a choice of black matte or satin silver finishes
Construction: Sealed seams, premium insulation, and tinted double-paned glass provide thermal and UV protection
Refrigeration: Advanced CellarPro cooling units provide digital temperature and humidity control.
COOLING UNIT OVERVIEW
All wine cabinets from Le Cache come with a choice of 3 energy-efficient CellarPro cooling units included in the price of the wine cabinet. The 3 CellarPro cooling units are dimensionally sized exactly alike, and therefore they are interchangeable. However, the 3 cooling units differ in terms of their BTUH cooling output and the level of noise that they produce. Each of the 3 cooling units is discussed below.
The 1800QTL-ECX is our quietest cooling unit and is designed exclusively for residential use in a temperature-controlled environment. The 1800QTL-ECX is appropriate for all credenzas, Model 1400 and Model 2400 wine cabinets. It also can be used in larger Model 3100, Model 3800, and Model 5200 wine cabinets, provided that the desired cellar temperature is closer to 60F than 55F.
This unit should not be used in ducted applications, or paired with our front duct hood.
Key Stats: 1065 BTUH at 55F, 41 dbA installed in a cabinet.
The 1800QT-ECX cooling unit is approximately 30% more powerful and 4 decibels louder than The 1800QTL-ECX cooling unit. It is designed for residential use in a temperature-controlled environment. The 1800QT-ECX easily can maintain 55F in our largest wine cabinets.
This unit can be used with our front duct hood.
Key Stats: 1380 BTUH at 55F, 45 dbA installed in a cabinet.
The 1800XT-ECX is approximately 5% more powerful and 3 decibels louder than The 1800QT-ECX cooling unit because it uses more powerful fans. As a result, The 1800XT-ECX is ideally suited for garage environments (with temperatures ranging from 40F to 95F), commercial environments (where the cellar is frequently accessed), and installations with our front-duct hood.
Key Stats: 1456 BTUH at 55F, 48 dbA installed in a cabinet.
1800XTS-ECX cooling units, approximately 30% more powerful than 1800XT-ECX cooling units, also can be used inside Le Cache wine cabinets for an additional charge. Please call us at 707.794.8000 for more information and/or to order.

The cooling unit plugs into a standard wall outlet, and the outlet should be on a dedicated circuit. The components of the cooling unit draw 3 amps, and the electric outlet on the side of the cooling unit also is rated for 3 amps. The cord extends 6 1/2 feet from the back of the cabinet. If an extension cord is used, it should be 14-gauge wire or thicker, grounded, and as short as possible. We recommend using a surge protector rated at 15 amps or more. Under no circumstances should the wine cabinet share a circuit with another motor or compressor-based appliance, like a wine cooler, fridge, or air conditioner.
Because of the significant weight of your wine cabinet, it is important that it be placed on a hard surface, otherwise, the cabinet may become skewed if the doors settle unevenly over time. If you will be placing your cabinet on thick carpeting, consider placing a carpet board underneath the wine cabinet. You can purchase a carpet board from Le Cache, or you can have your local hardware store cut a 3/4 inch plywood board to the following dimensions: 26.5w x 25d
DOOR SWING CLEARANCE:
The doors of our wine cabinets swing "wide" by approximately 1 inch when open at 90 degrees. The additional width should be accounted for when purchasing cabinets that do not have moldings because the stated widths of our wine cabinets do not account for the door swing. Please note that an additional width is required in front of the cabinet.
WEIGHT LOAD FACTOR:
After loading your wine cabinet with wine bottles, it will be extremely heavy. When selecting a location for your cabinet, make sure that the floor underneath is strong enough to support the weight of the cabinet.
CellarPro cooling units are designed to handle temperatures ranging from 50 to 95F.
The cooling unit generates hot air that, when combined with our front-vent hood, will be exhausted from the front of the wine cabinet
Our built-in configuration enables the placement of the wine cabinet flush against the wall in an enclosed space, closet, or alcove, provided that at least 1 1/2 inches of clearance exist above the wine cabinet and hood for removal of the hood and the air filter.
|Credenza - Contemporary||8
|Credenza - Euro & Mission||7
(1) We count the top of the racks as 1 row when counting rows in our racks.
(2) Every slot in the racks is 3 3/4" and sized to fit oversized Burgundy and most Champagne-size bottles.
(3) Bulk storage is located atop the racks (except for the first row atop the racks). Bulk storage capacity is based on Bordeaux-size bottles.
(4) Total capacity is the sum of racked plus bulk capacity, with double-deep storage in all cases except the Contemporary Credenza (which is single-deep). Usable capacity may be lower by 2-3 bottles when the first few cells under the cooling unit are left empty for proper air circulation.
Does a built-in cabinet require space above or behind the cabinet?
Built-in cabinets using our front-vent hoods do not require space behind or to the sides of the cabinet. Above the cabinet, with the front-vent hood installed, an additional 1 1/2 inches of space is required to remove the front-vent hood so that the cooling unit condenser coils can be cleaned periodically, or the filter replaced. Click on our placement requirements tab for more information.
Does the unit really need a dedicated circuit?
A: Yes, our units require dedicated circuits. When we say "dedicated circuit", we mean that the circuit shouldn't have any items that require heavy draws of electricity - eg other appliances, vacuum cleaners, big-screen TVs, blow-dryers - on the same circuit as the cooling unit. Lighting, computers, or other low-draw items shouldn't be a problem on the same circuit.
Do I need the condensate drain line?
A: You don't need the drain line because our wine cabinets are constructed to be airtight when the doors are closed, and the cooling unit has a drain pan to catch excess condensation, which is burned off as the cooling unit runs.
Why does the fan run without the compressor?
A: We've programmed our fans to stay "on" for 3 minutes after the compressor turns "off", and then every 15 minutes thereafter, to recirculate moisture inside the cabinet. This fan cycle is extremely energy efficient and increases the humidity inside the cabinet.
This product is classed as a luxury wine cooler. It's also sized wine fridge.
