    I am looking to purchase a Newair 28 bottle wine cooler and want to know do I have to plug the condensation drain hole and install fans for the cooler to work properly as a wineador? Reason I ask is ultimately I probably will do those things right away and as of right now I have a small 8...

    OK, so bear with me on this. Sorry for the crappy picture. I bought this used, and as you can see, in the back where the drain is, there's a little plastic rim that sticks up a bit. I think it was supposed to be flush originally. My question is: If I yank on this thing with pliers, will it pop...

    Before today, the last time I was in my humi was on Sunday night. I opened it up to exchange some smokes for David's pass and what did I find? Mold. I just had to toss about $150 worth of smokes, mostly Cohibas, all with a good bit of age. Luckily, only a small portion were affected (I checked...

    So I am still battling with the idea of an ETC. My wine cooler goes to 65 degrees, but I would rather it go to 70/78 so it doesnt turn on as much to mess with the humidity. I really wanted to be able to snake the ETC cord through the condensation holes and then seal the holes off. But the way...

    Can I use any silicone sealant to plug the drain in my cooler or is there a prefered brand? Semper Fi, Mr.Friday

    I saw the following in a thread concerning condensation in an Edgestar 28. This was an attempt by thegoldenmackid to deal with excess condensation in his fridge. This method did not resolve his issue; however, I think with a simple modification, it could be a great way to reclaim the moisture...

    What sealant should I use? I'm thinking just regular silicon but then I don't have any experience with this stuff and I'd hate to contaminate my stash by being an idiot. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Hi everyone, Ive been reading pretty much everything puff has to offer and I keep coming across people making winedor's or vinotemps. It sounds like a great idea and will probably be my next humidor since my current one is almost at its max. Everything seems to make sense, and its a pretty...

    Just unpacked my new Edgestar unit. The drain configuration is different than the Vinotemp. Underneath the fan for the thermo device, it has the same channel/funnel as the Vinotemp. But instead of draining to the bottom of the unit, the channel/funnel had a small lip (shelf) with a drain...

    I've read in a few places that an effective way to capture the water once you plug the drain hole is to place beads in a mesh bag to catch it which will then redistribute the moisture as needed. But won't that allow the beads to be compromised by absorbing non-distilled water or is the...

    Been doing some searching on this subject, and didn't find any conclusive info. So I figured I'd start a new post for you post whores to deal directly with this specific issue. I have my new 28 bottle vinotemp, and am about 4 days from setup. I'm trying to figure out what to do about the drain...

    I see several people have created water collection dishes in the bottom of their vinotemp. 1) What material did you use to divert the drippings into a dish? Obvi0ously not paper. Duct Tape? 2) Considering fishing 22 gauge solid core wire through the drain hole and splitting it inside to run 2...

    I'm trying to seal up my vinotemp and the diagram shows a water pan. Did you guys find any drainage tubes or holes or anything that need to be sealed up? Where might this be? Maybe you can take a picture and point it out. Thanks!!!

    Got a box of Punch Gran Cru Maduro's from JR today and couldn't cram it in the tuppadore with the other cigars so I expanded into the wine fridge that I bought a month ago. I'm now letting the humidity stabilize with the 1 lb of 65% beads. The little refridgerator is not on yet as it's only 65...

    Each spring my house becomes plagued by these things, and my wife threatens to move out. For those who don't know what they are, here's a picture: They are tiny, fly very slowly, and leave a dusty residue when you squish them. Here's a brief writeup: Drain flies (or moth flies) are small...
