    i have same problem with a beer cooler

  • fxlong Feb 15, 2009

    My Marvel beverage cooler runs constantly and everything freezes even at the minimum setting. I assume it's the cold control thermostat/relay, P/N 41006036, but I don't know where I can find the replacement part.

    Viking VUAR141 (built by Marvel) relay isn't the problem, its probably the thermistor (temp sensor) did you get your problem solved?

    I have the same problem on the same fridge. Without thinking to look here I asked a local repair guy who said I needed to replace the whole thing so I got the kit.. Now that it's here it strikes me as a little odd that the controller (the "relay" as you call it) would go out. Did you replace it or just the thermistor?

I truly doubt the control is the faulty component. It has two inputs it uses to decide when to cycle the compressor.

1) the potentiometer with the control dial is connected to terminals # 6 and 7.
2) the thermsitor is connected to terminals # 4 and 5.

Most of the time it is the thermistor that has failed. Marvel Part number 42244531.

You can order it directly from the factory by calling 800-428-6644

    My Viking VUARI40 was also freezing up the contents inside the fridge causing bottles to explode. I initially thought that it was going to be the Thermostat Cold Control, however as subdriver pointed out that it most likely is the thermistor.

    By the way, the Cold Control Thermostat part number 41006036 has been replaced by part number 42243506 and can be purchased at the link below for $112.99

    I need a replacement Thermistor for my DUARI40 beverage fridge. The Thermocouple has a label saying P/N 41006038. Having a hard time finding a current part equivalent. Any suggestions? Is the one named above (42243506) the same??

Why does my wine cooler run too cold?

If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.

Temperature control does not work. Unit freezes everything no matter where the temperature control is set (Marvel Wine Refrigerator)

Either the thermostat itself is bad, or the relay is sticking. If you break the connection between the T-stat and the relay, and it keeps runnning, the problem is the relay.

If the compressor stops running when you break the connection or disconnect the T-stat, then the T-stat needs to be replaced.

Making clicking sound motor gets hot but not cooling

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

Can a cooler fan relay be located and replaced by a non mechanic

Dont know where your relay is but generally relays are grouped together in a box under the hood or on a rail on the firewall. They are "plug in" units that can be easily repalced.The ones housed in a box are usually easier to service because there is a description usually inside the cover. Many times the relays are the same# serving different purposes. If thats the case, use a good one and plug it into different slots 'till the fan comes on (make sure engine is hot enough for this to happen) Be aware that a bad sensor will give you a similar problem (it won't tell the relay to go on)

Water is hot on both cold and hot side of my water cooler. water bottle on cooler is extreamly hot.

are you talking about a water cooler dispenser with hot and cold valve?

if you do, the cooling side is not functioning well.

is the compressor running? if not, check the thermostat.

if the compressor tries to start but can not. check the relay of the compressor, it may be bad.
if the relay is ok then the compressor is bad.

another thing to look at is the hot water thermostat. it may no longer functioning as to the cause of the bottle to be extremely hot.

tnx 4 using fixya,
