Oster wine cooler fuse

I have removed the fuse per previous posts..and yes mine is blown too.
However, the local electronics store said they need to know if this is a "slow blowing "fuse or "fast blowing" fuse. they say it is critical to get the right one.
Anyone know which it is?

Remove windows 8 and windows 8.1 back to windows 7

Buy Windows 8 Activation Key 64bit 32bit
Hearing all the negative sentiments toward the Windows 8 activation key OS made me really cautious in upgrading from Windows 7.
Finally, my Windows 7 became buggy enough that I decided it was time for me to go ahead and upgrade.
The days of reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling Windows OS (95, 98, XP...), when the computer started to act up, are over. I got the pro upgrade version....for a really great price on .
I purchased all my software from them. They are the best online store I ever buy.
Installation took a while, with lots of downloading and installing drivers, updates...etc.
When it was finally done, computer was running a lot faster, and all of the weird behaviors of previous installation were gone.
Now as far as using the new OS, it really wasn't that big of a deal. Yes, it's different from the previous Windows; but after 2 or 3 days, I've picked up so many cool features that I truly believe it's a superior OS compared to the previous Windows releases. Really.
The interface is quite convenient once you figure out how to use all the features and what happens when you move your cursor around the screen.
Oh, yeah, and I don't have a touchscreen. Although I'm certain that a touchscreen would definitely be a more effective way to navigate Windows 8, I really have no problems using just the mouse.
So, there you have it. I love this new OS.

If there is absolutely NOTHING working it is very likely a fuse has blown. Everything that electricity runs through should have been made with a fuse or breaker. The fuse prevents a hot wire from getting too hot and catching everything on fire.
The website states the units have a two year warranty. The phone number to the company is listed as (02) 9360 3199. I was not able to locate a manual for your unit so if you choose to check for a blown fuse unplug the unit first. Electrical devices can hold a charge AFTER being unplugged and electrocute you such as TV sets, so unless you have some experience I would not poke around inside with any metal items or touch things I was unsure of. If you are a curious person such as myself, the fuse "should" be somewhere near where the cord enters the unit. If you find that is the problem, hook it back up to a surge protector instead of plugging it directly into the wall to help prevent another blown fuse. Hope this helps.

Stopped cooling no humming or nothing digtal reading are working but nothing else

you need to replace the fan at the back of the unit. no noise means the fan is not working. The fan removes the heat from inside the unit to cool it. no fan, no cool. Your local appliance repair can fix it. the fan does not cost much and there isn't much labor involved. If you want to tackle it yourself then take your model number to the appliance store and order a fan, remove the back and replace the fan. Some fans are plug and play, some are not. if yours is not plug and play then you will have to splice wires. either way, the fan is your problem.

I have a 12 bottle vinotemp that is making a chirping sound. The fan is slow and then faster, also there is a red & green lite on the circut board that flashes. Where can i see about getting this...

I have a different model Vinotemp, but experienced the same exact problem described here where the LEDs on the controller board blinks and there is a clicking or chirping noise. It turns out there was a bad electrolytic capacitor on the controller board that was visibly noticeable (it was bulging). Replacing the capacitor fixed the problem. On my model, it was a 1000 microfarad 16v cap, available at RadioShack or any store that sells electronic components for less than $1. Of course, you will need some soldering skills for this fix.

The temperature icon does not light up so you can read the numbers. I can't set it on the correct temperature. It keeps gong back to 70.

when you are setting the temp the display shows the set value .. but when you release the buttons for a few seconds the display reverts back to the actual temp inside .. so if you set it at 55 deg F .. after a second or so it will jump back to 70 or whatever it happens to be at that time inside the cabnet .. eventually it should go down to your set point (several hours) .. but mine didnt .. it stayed at the room temp forever .. the fan was running but the solid state cooling device actually had no power (requires about 4 amps at 12 volts).... the problem was a blown fuse in the power supply inside the cabnet .. make sure the unit is not plugged in if you are going to take the back off the machine ... in my case all that was needed was to replace the primary side fuse (about 2 or 3 amps i think) there wasnt but there could have been other problems as well .. the power supply is what they call an "off line switcher" when it is plugged in it has dangerous voltage and current levels .. so again dont plug it in unless it is assembled in a safe manor ..
the same power supply might power the "back light" for your display ..

No response from company on Oster 12 bottle wine refrigerator

just replace the 5amp fuse on circuit board with a 6.3amp. tada!
use an exacto knife to remove the shrink wrap on both ends of old fuse. heat ends with a soldering iron and pull away old fuse. solder new 20mm in line fuse holder from radio shack to both poles insert 6.3amp fuse and done. at least mine works again! $6.00 total cost!

You must remove the fuse from the circuit board to check it. More than likely it's blown. A continuity test while in the circuit will always show the fuse as being good due to feedback through the circuitry.

Fans not working

I had the same problem as other bloggers--temp would not decrease and fan did not run. . . as suggested by others, I replaced the 5A heat-shrink wrapped fuse in upper left corner of circuit board (fuse is covered in black heat shrink wrap and is in a U-shape). I unsoldered the two ends of the fuse on the circuit board (be sure you locate the correct two holes) and then replaced it with two parts from Radio Shack--a 5x20mm Inline Fuse Holder rated at 250V AC, 5A (part # 270-1238) and used a 6.3A slow-blow 250V fuse (part # 270-1066). Now the wine Refir works great!

To replace the part take all the screws off the sheet metal covering on the back of the refrigerator. Remove the circuit board from the plastic holder. I left all the wires plugged in and just unsoldered the fuse with the circuit board still connected--but to solder you will need an extra pair of hands to hold the board while you solder.

If you don't have it, get some silver solder while at Radio Shack and a thin, needle-point soldering iron tip. Radio shack has 30W soldering irons for less than $10. You really don't need soldering experience--just a steady hand. Even if you have none of these parts your total outlay at RadioShack is less than $25 for everything.
