That thing that's beeping...it is the circuit board. It is telling you that it wants a new cousin to live in your house. Replace it.

Check your thermostat setting, if the setting is ok then something wrong with your thermostat control.

Hey all,

For those of you who have problems with one or both or your zones not cooling on the HVTB18DABB or similar wine cooler/cellar, the problem lies the Peltier-style thermoelectric cooling module. The original part is "TEC1-12706" and information on it can be found on google. Finding this or a similar part on ebay can be done by searching for "thermoelectric cooler". If the exact TEC1-12706 part cannot be found, then any similar part that's 40mm x 40mm in size, and 51 to 69 watts should do fine. For $25 I was able to get 3 modules...one to replace the bad zone I had, and then I'll have 2 spares in case the other zone, or this new one, ever go bad again.

To replace the part you must remove the back panel from your Wine cellar. You will see 2 big fans attached to two large heat sinks. (If a heat sink on the back does not feel warm to the touch, the the other side is obviously not cooling, which means that zone is broken.) Remove the screws from the fan and the heat sink of the zone that is not cooling, and while holding the heat sink, pull the whole cooling assembly for that zone out. Dont be alarmed if you feel some insulating foam separating as you pull it out, its a tight fit so that is to be expected. Once you have the cooling assembly out of the fridge, take it apart and you will see the square ceramic cooling module inside. (REMEMBER which way the module was oriented before you remove it, so you know how to put the new one in.) Clip the red and black wires near the module and remove it from the assembly. DON'T wipe away any of the white thermal grease left behind on the heat sinks. If you have any extra thermal grease handy (available at Best Buy, or online at sites like newegg), apply an extra pea-sized dab to both sides of the new module. Put the assembly back together and splice the wires from the new module to the loose wires left behind going into the back of the Wine cellar. Mount everything back in place as before, close up the back, and youre done!

This is really a lot easier to do than it sounds, especially if you're comfortable doing this sort of thing...a few pictures would explain much better if anyone wants to illustrate.

These are actually great units, so I hope this helps somebody fix theirs!

SOURCE: My Haier 12 wine bottle cooler is dead. No fan or cooling .

Check the 2 fuses,one covered with black heat shrink, next see if internal fan is spinning, inside door, the 2 fans on the back should spin when first plugged in. also the 2 led's red and green should light up...if internal fan doesn't spin then check or replace, use batteries to get it to spin as a test...good luck,safety first...

Your PTC relay on the compressor is bad needs to be replaced.

First be sure to unplug cooler. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

Vinotemp wine cooler just stop working.


Ok check the power supply input. Assume you have do e that and all ok. More than likely it could be a thermostat or compressor gas leakage. Has the compressor been running more than usual before it gave up working. Check for rust on the internal coils as sometimes they fail. Depending on what you paid for the wine cooler it may be cheaper to simply replace it. Can highly recommend Delongi 145
litre bar fridge, after replacing several cheaper brands and it is very reliable and cools really well though they are not at the cheap end of the market. You get what you pay for with appliances. Best of luck resolving the problem but if the wine cooler no longer is getting cold but the compressor continues to run, you can bet that it's out if gas from a leak in the internal pipe work and generally not worth attempting to either locate and or repair.

Unit does not get cool. I can hear the compressor kick on, but it goes off about 15 seconds later. After a minute or so it goes on again only to shut off again


:

Hi!
That is probably the compressor relay
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay

I have a 1HP/7 1/2 gal. Craftman air compressor( about 20 years old). I was using it to spray paint lawn chairs. The compressor stopped. I was to use it the next morning but for only a short time and it...


1) Check that it is not already at full pressure
2) Check that you have power coming in to the switch (20 year old power cord)
3) Bypass the switch and, briefly, plug it in.
4) Look for a fuse or breaker.
5) With the motor leads disconnected from the switch, check that you have resistance across the motor (0 ohms would be bad).

If you are not comfortable doing any part of this, don't. Check with friends & neighbors for a reputable local appliance repair company.

Light is on, temp is set to cool, but the unit is NOT cool. The unit is 10 years old.


as old as the unit is the compressor has most likley gone bad. For this size compressor the replacement should not cost that much. You can call an appliance repair shop and let them know you unit and that you need a new compressor installed they should be able to quote you a cost on replacement.
Good luck hope this helped

Wine cooler #ULN-75BWC-00 motor seems to have shut off and no longer cooling. Please advise possible issues & parts to be replaced. Unit about 7 yrs old.


the motor could be defective or it could be low o refrigerant causing the pressure switch to not kick on the fan. Could even be wires have come loose from the fan. If the fan does not work it won't cool. however it mould most likely cosy you more to fix if you take it to a shop to have it repaired if you have the tools to test it with I can help you so let me know if you have a test meter volt ohm meter and I can tell you how to test the system.

Marvel 61wc wine cooler turns on, but doesn't cool


If you can hear the compressor running and there is no cooling happening your unit has either lost it's refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is completly worn out (or both). If you just hear the condenser fan running (air blowing), then maybe the compressor just has bad electricals (starting relay, overoad, run capactor) or it has developed a bad winding and will need to be replaced.

If you know you have lost refrigerant the repair will be quite costly and you should consider replacement. If you feel it is a failure of the small electrical parts for the compressor, repair would be more cost effective.

You can get further trouble-shooting assistance and order parts direct from the factory at 800-223-3900.

You can look up a local servicer on their web-site at www.lifeluxurymarvel.com
Should you desire to attempt electrical repair yourself, reply to me and I will provide further troubleshooting assistance or you can contact Marvel Customer Service at the number above. Good-Luck, Subdriver

Loud noise


The compressor fan is making the noise and causing overheating as well. Easy fix. Call Danby with model # and they can figure out correct fan. Part will cost around $10 and is easy to replace. Plug and play with screws. Good luck
