    Compressor is very hot to the touch. Interior light operates = power is on.

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

Haier Thermoelectric Wine Cooler


This wine cooler hasn't held temperature for months, even though during the winter my living room gets to 58 F at night. I've had it maybe a year.

I took the back off, and 2 of the 3 heat sinks felt cool, which means the thermoelectric pack was just conducting cold out of the cabinet in 2 of 3 cases. The third one felt slightly warm, as it should. I checked that the cool ones had 12 v to them, they did, so they should have been pumping heat out.

I put bowls of ice inside the unit, and when the temperatures got down to the set points, I heard relays click, so I figured the control unit was OK.

I removed one of the TEC modules that was cold on the outside, and taped up the hole with masking tape.

I unplugged the fan from the circuit board and unscrewed that fan assembly from the heat sink.

I then clipped the leads to the TEC unit, cut away the blobs of hot melt glue, and disassembled the cooling module. I took the TEC device and hooked it back up, making sure it had voltage to it. After awhile, both sides just felt slightly warm so I knew it was bad.

Got on line and ordered 4 (to have spares) TEC1-12703 coolers. I have thermal grease. When the parts come, I will re-assemble and should be good to go.

I don't know what blows the TEC devices, they should be very robust. Maybe Haier got a bad bunch of them, I read almost all bad reviews on these wine coolers.

Want to purchase relay. Can't find part locally.


The best thing to do is go to your local appliance parts warehouse and match up the relay with what they have in stock.

Be sure to briung all relevant info you might have on the unit.

That way you can ask for the RF-5600-01 to compare it before purchasing. Thats exatly what a service tech would do if you called one, only they will charge you 50 to 100 bucks to do it.

Haier Wine Cooler motor died


Yes, those motors shoudl be pretty standard stock items at any local appliance parts supply house found in the yellow pages.

You might also try lookinmg under "motors and controls" in the yellow pages. If you get it locally like that then you can physically compatre the old one with the new one to make sure it is indeed the same part.

Thats better than an online link with just pictures.
