Whynter CHC-120S Stainless Steel 250-Cigar Cooler Humidor, 1.2 Cubic Feet

can you lower the humidity more than 62%

Does the analog hygrometer have a way to mechanically adjust it? Is it removable, so that I can put it in a sealed container and get an accurate read?

It’s removable. Not adjustable. If you’re lucky it can be accurate. Mine wasn’t so i had to replace it


 

If ambient temp is below desired temp,will it warm to desired temp?

The recommended ambient temperature is between 68º-80ºF. The thermoelectric cooling system does not have heating capabilities. <br>We are happy to provide any technical support or product information.

Will this thing hold up in the hot summer months in a non insulated shop?

Can’t exactly answer the question <br>I am keeping mine in normal room temperature under the place that doesn’t get direct sun.. even at that environment, I had some problems to keep the cigars on the 70-75 level.. more than normal placement ..?? Can’t tell the direct feed back

 

upon initial setup how long does it take for the unit to cool down?

I maintain mine at 64F and it was there and maintaining in an hour.  Very accurate at maintaining temperature.

 

What should I use to produce the humidity it needs?  Beads with the added distilled water?

It comes with a cup to put Distilled water in

 

Why has temperature has gone down to 42 degrees

Probably because the ac does not respond to the digital control. I have the same problem with mine. It defaults away from the desired temp setting. THese are real pieces of ………..

 

Does the unit come with a left swing door?

No and it’s garbage.  Mine stopped working within a year and I know two other people who had the same problem.  Buy the New Air model; its much better.

 

Where can I get extra drawers?

I purchased cedar trays from amazon

 

My humidor Is constantly reading a humidity level of 76-78. How can I have it regulate more toward the lower end of 70 degrees?

Opt out of using the bowl and distilled water system. Go with using boveda packs, xikar jars, or heartfelt beads. Those are two way systems.

 

how long is the cord?

48″

 

I am considering purchasing this unit for someone as a gift that lives in China.  What supplies do I need to keep this unit keeping cigars fresh?

Better: boveda packs (they are reusable and last forever) AND a cup of distilled water (cup is included in unit). You will also need to use an anti mold that does NOT dry things out; you have two options: 1) a commercial product called Concrobium, basically a sodium carbonate mixture, that is great! you wipe the unit down once every 15 days; or 2) in China they manufacture anit-mold packets that are used for leather products to keep them moist but no mold (like shoes, for example). you will NEED that anti mold solution or you will lose your cigars eventually to mold

 

Anybody ever have to defrost their unit. Set at 62, but continues to cool down to mid 50s?

No

 

is it 13 1/2 inches from inside area or total unit?

inside

 

Please verify the cubic feet of this unit.  It looks identical to the NewAir CC-300, but is listed as being less than half the volume.

sorry i do not know.  the specs should be able to assist.  i do know i have a lot of cigars in the unit.

 

Can this sit directly on the floor, or is it best on top of something?

I have it sitting on the floor and it is fine. It’s a little awkward accessing cigars at the bottom some times so I might consider putting it on a table or something.

 

I want to order this humidor but here in Greece we have 220v 50 hz voltage.can this humidor work property

In my country i have 220 v what adapter i have to buy for the whinter chc -251s

You need to get a voltage coverter. 110/120V. All US electrical items use this voltage.

 

Just received the unit; plugged it in; there is no power at all, help!

Send it back.

 

I’m looking to buy this unit but wasn’t sure if i had to buy a cigar oasis with it? does the humidor create it’s own humidity?

It comes with a plastic container for distilled water.  I use a Xikar humidifier with mine.  It will stay 70 percent all the time.

 

Does the humidor store whole cigar boxes so I don’t have to unseal them or only individual cigars

You can put full boxes in it. Absolutely.

 

What steps did other purchasers go through for seasoning? I understand seasoning the shelves, what about the plastic parts?

I wiped down the plastic interior with warm water to clean. No need to season the plastic, it wont absorb moisture. I use gel beads a few boveda packs and i let it sit for several days.

 

Has anyone had trouble with humidity levels? I”ve been running a hydra and get roughly 68% on the bottom and 75%+ on the top

I’m having the exact issue. I’ve contacted the manufacturer and they just emailed me a trouble shooting guide for something unrelated.

 

Will the CHC-120S keep the temperature inside the unit below 70 degrees when the outside (ambient) temperature is at 85 degrees in the summer?

Yes, but I do not recommend this unit.

 

Is it normal for the interior/exterior fan to run constantly? I have set it at 65 degrees and even once it reaches that temp, the fans still run…

Mine does the same thing.. I hear it change tones as it hits the set temp.  I figure it’s keeping the air circulating as  needed.

 

Does it have a anti-uv glass ?

No, I do not think, that this humidor has an anti-uv glass! But for what should it helpfull?

 

Everybody I know this is a dumb question but can I use this just like a normal humidor? because I am tired of wooden humidors I have no luck with them

Yes, you can. The wood inside smells real good, better than any other wooden humidor. You can remove the shelves if you want

 

Can the shelves be completely removed?

Yes, the Spanish cedar shelves and drawer are completely removable. <br>Please contact our Consumer Support Team, Monday – Friday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM PST at 1-866-WHYNTER  (1-866-949-6837) and at support@whynter.com should you have additional questions.

 

What is the distance in inches from shelf to shelf? I am looking to put trays on the shelves for easier access to my cigars. Standard tray is 2.5 in.

You say tray do you mean drawer or shelf ? It comes with everything already 2 drawers and 4 shelves there about 2 3/4″ apart the drawers are 3″ top to bottom

 

Is it possible to buy the drawer that holds the hygrometer, i purchased a used on on amazon and it came with no drawers or shelves.

I’m not sure, I purchased this as a gift for my brother. I will check with him and get back to you!

 

What electricity voltage does it need, 110 or 220?

110

 

  1. for the 1.2 cubic model.  Box for my fav. cigar is 10.2 inches long, 8.4 inches wide and 2 inches high.  Approx how many could i put in? txs

Probably 4. If you take all the sticks out then more. You can get creative with the space.

 

I have my humidor temp set @ 56. The humidity is @ 70. I want to know what I can do to raise the temp without raising the humidity?

You can’t; not if you have the Whynter model I have.  Mine is set at 66, but I keep the humidity at at 70.  I have had no problems with any of my cigars.  The humidity is the main thing to watch with Whynter model above.  My Whynter humidor has actually restored/or rehumidified some of my older cigars.  So, there’s that.

 

I am wondering about temperature? Does this humidor have some sort of heat source? I live in a cold climate. Thanks

No, it only chills.

 

I just bought the 2.5 cf version, and am currently seasoning it. a little confused how it can hold 400 cigars though. is that if they are stacked??

K.simms I have smaller version of the humidor thus quantity that you are looking for to fit is beyond my experience with my smaller unit..

 

Does the 21.6″ front to back dimension include the handle, or does the handle stick out beyond that?

Yes it includes the handle.   Dimensions not including the handle are 20 inches from front to back
