Question about EdgeStar CWR530SZ - 53 Bottle Built-In Wine Cooler

2 Answers

I have a cwr530sz wine cooler. The fans run but it does not get cool. Temp set to 65. The highest it will go but will not bring temp down below room temp at about 76. What are the likely issues. It looks from the wiring diagram like it has a single cooling element

Defective compressor. Refrigerant leak. Defective thermostat. If the compressor is running, then it has a refrigerant leak.

    I believe my relay is bad. Does anyone have a manual that shows the way to replace that part?

  • Louis F Hoholek Jr Oct 26, 2015

    Manufacturer manuals only show you how to operate or give information about the equipment, not how to repair it. You possibly could do an online search to try and find a video on how to do it.

    No. You need a brazing torch, brazing rods, nitrogen pressure tank, vacuum pump, refrigerant and compound refrigeration gauges to do the job.

It depends on if there is anything in it! Those types of coolers are only designed to drop temps of wine bottles to below room temp a few degrees. They don't cool like refrigerator in your kitchen.

Wine fridge is not getting cold anymore


Its really hard to determine without proper diagnosis, but are you sure it indeed has a compressor? does it run ? Does it have a circulating fan inside? A lot of the wine coolers I've dealt with were "Peltier" coolers. They use electronics to cool usually only to about 10deg below room temp. They require a load ( in this case wine bottles ) to operate properly. They don't have a cold control like a refrigerator.

I have a Haier BC112G. It is not cooling at all. Temp panel works, so I can set the thermostat up or down, but nothing happens and it just goes back to room temp after that.

Not sure, but did you clean the filter in the back? Ours has that, and the temp starts creeping up every few weeks until I clean it. But we've never been able to get it below 58 or so, and in the last year, not below 60. I think that's just the nature of this type of cooling. Our house is also at 80. But, can keep it at 60 with the above cleaning.

Motor very hot; not cooling


If the compressor is hot it is possible that it is short cycling. Make sure the compressor is running and that the condenser fan motor is running if air cooled.

U-line 15" wine cooler not cooling, but light is on.


If the light is on and no fan or compressor is running then its your thermostat that is bad. Thats the only thing that turns on those parts.

Wine cooler doesn't cool properly


Few things to check here. If the compressor is not running then the problem may be a bad thermostat or the compressor start device (ptc starter). Most common would be the thermostat on wine coolers. Also need to check if the fan is running. If everything is running then you have a sealed system problem. If the fan is the only thing that is not running that will cause a no cool situation.
