Look for some type of sealant let it cure and then try again- it may not be worth it

Unfortunately, 15 years is about the life span on most refrigerator systems these days. It's the weld joints in the cooling system that break down over time and eventually all the refrigerant leaks out. If you find the leak and fix it, you will likely have another one in a short period of time.

Check the thermostat setting; it may be set too high. If lowering the setting does not solve the problem, replace the thermostat.
P.S. The thermostat is what controls the temperature.

Mine is 10 years old. How can I refurbish the refrigeration system?


Certainly. Providing the system holds pressure, it can go indefinitely. Newer motor technology, in the compressor area would use significantly less energy, consider switching that out.

Ice on the back wall; temperature went from 58 degrees to 34 degrees; had to shut off regrigerator


hi,
Wine cabinets work off of cycle defrost, so in order to built frost your temperature sensors are not working properly. I would look for corrosion on or in connections to be the fault or problem. Sensors report information to control unit and thats there only job. Its the control unit that dictates function. Look for corrosion to be the problem, clean connection and seal with RTV when connection a corrected.
Good Luck

On two recent occasions, my unit has chilled the wines down to about 36 deg.F. It has otherwise run fine for about two years, maintaining about 57 deg. F, consistently. Any idea what would cause such...


wine coolers are usually installed in cabinets or in a bar type situation where the airflow to them becomes more critical. the cooler has two sets of coils that can collect dust and dirt. once the coils clog with dirt, the fans cannot do there jobs by passing air over the coils. This is how the heat transfer takes place. One coil absorbs the heat from the inside of the cooler and the other rejects the heat into your home or outside of the unit. They should be cleaned once a month just like your refrigerator. This will make it run more effeciently. If this is not the problem, check to see if there is a supply register from your central heating and air system close to it. you may be able to get a diverter to push the air away from the cooler

COOLER TEMP CONTROL SEEMS NOT TO BE WORKING.  TEMP GOES DOWN TO 42 AND STAYS THERE.


thats because 42 degrees is the optimum temperature for wine to be at. unlike other beverages wine coolers only go to 42 degrees.
