I have a Koolspace 600 that cools my small wine cellar. It vents into the garage. Lately it has been making a humming noise and I noticed today that the right inside fan is not running when the two outside fans and the left inside fan is running. I periodically clean the fans and the filter with a vaccuum cleaner. Help please. Larry H.
You'll need to replace the fan. The original fan bearings wear our after a couple of years. It's pretty simple to drill out the rivets and replace the fan. I suggest you replace all four with ball-bearing fan units.

check to see if compressor cycles, if so you may have a thermistor problem which is intergrated with control, replace if you can find part. make sure to check evaporator, see if ice is forming if so you have a leak,or dry evap. you have a leak. repar.
hope this helps.
It seems like this cooling unit (AA6, also Grand Cru 800) just doesn't last as per numerous postings that I found when I was trying to find a replacement unit. Best advise seems to be get a higher output unit that will fit application.
do you have a recovery machine and gauges you need to tap both sides to check the high to and it needs to be vaccumed down to remove moisture ,find and fix the leak. leaks arnt verry common un less someone broke a line somehow. if the compressor is running it is more likley it has a restriction or bad valve in compressor, hooking to high and low sides will determine which if is less than 5 years old it could be under warrant still most sealed systems have a longer warranty than the rest of it is the evaperator getting cold at all.
has the cellar ever worked right in your home? These small refrigeration units basically move heat from a conditioned space to another space that is not objectionable such as your home where your central air system then moves the btu's. This being said, the cellar has a ventilation system that must pull in room air and push out the box air. these vents must be clean and clear of obstrucions to ensure proper performance by the equipment
I have the Vintage Keeper Odyssey. I had the same thing the other day. Unit is 7 years old. Vintage Keeper web-site suggested to unscrew the control box and remove. (The box with the "Set" and Up and Down arrows. Unplug the wiring and sensor on the back and then plug back in. Plug in the unit and text. It took my "AL" away.
Unit doesn't cool very well. A coolant leak may be my problem. I was looking for solutions other than buying a new refrigeration unit.
your koolspace is loosing refrigerant slowly. the solution is to buy another one, because koolspace people changing their design every year so you as a consumer would not repair the cooler rather buy one new from them. what a sad way to do business. so do yourself an act of kind, do not buy koolspace, buy another brand and modify the hole to fit it in.
