    Wine cooler not cooling either. I even unplugged it for weeks and tried again; no luck. I can't find service repair without sending unit back to Cuisinart.

    I have the same problem. I have used my wine cooler for over a year now and it stopped getting cold.

    My unit is about 3 months past the 3 year warranty and is not cooling. Fan runs but wine does not get cool. Temp on door says 74 degrees, I called consumer service and they said since it is past the warranty period I had two choices.

    1. Buy a new unit. They would give me a discount on one.

    2. Find someone local that might be able to repair it. They have no clue who that might be.

    Anyone come up with an answer?

    Lesson- Don't buy anything that can't be repaired if it brakes.

It still works. (dec. 06 2009) The catch is that you have to pay shipping cost, 10 Dollar for the new unit and shipping and handling for the old unit back to them. Good news is that for Californians like me there are no shipping and handling cost for returns (since prohibited by law) sp I right now dont pay anything to get my new unit and the old one to them :) Happy Sunday and merry Christmas

Can not get wine cooler to get cool. Red lights keep,blinking. Need structions on how to set it.

If the light is on and no fan or compressor is running then its your thermostat that is bad. That's the only thing that turns on those parts. As you said the unit is new you should contact your dealer either to replace it.

Keep us updated.

Stuck at 77 degrees!


Do not assume the problem is related to the compressor or the sealed, hermetic system; these types of problems happen only rarely. Your unit may have dirty condenser coils, a door that doesn't seal tightly, or a defective temperature control.
1) Check the cold control. Be sure it is set to "cold." Normally, the temperature inside the unit should be about 37 degrees Fahrenheit.

2) Listen for the freezer fan inside the freezer. When the freezer fan is running, it means the defrost timer and the cold control in the unit are both set to cool.

3) Listen for the compressor fan, where the compressor is located (typically behind or beneath the refrigerator. When the freezer fan is operating, the compressor fan should also be working (most of the time).

4) If one of the fans is not working or the compressor is off, the unit will offer very little cooling or none at all.

hope you will be helpfull..
Thanks for contacting

Wine cooler does not cool and does not stay on setting

It may be a good idea to call Emerson. The cooler you have has a temperature control board. At this moment I do not know for sure where you can get a replacement circuit board. Here below is a link to Emerson's on-line technicians. Give that a try and let me know how things go, Thanks, Sea Breeze (click below)|ga|2|HI+%2D+Appliances|Emerson&JCRN=Emerson+Technicians&JPKW=emerson&JPDC=C&
