Question about Oster 12-Bottle Wine Cellar - Black

2 Answers

How can I contact Oster to fix or replace my unit? Thermostat not working

The programmable thermostat reads 75 and will not adjust. It automatically goes back to 75 or 77. The temp. is not that inside I suspect because I keep my home around 72. There is nothing blocking vents and the dust has been removed from the screen on the back of the unit. I unplugged it and let it set overnight and when I plug it in it goes back to 77. When trying to adjust the number will flash and goes right back to 77 or 75. Any suggestions. The toll free phone # in the manuel does not take calls from my home in Louisiana or my California cell phone. The ubit was purchased at Bestbuys last year on Black Friday. My name is Tery and my cell phone # 559-213-3703. Thankyou in advance for your help.

    Exactly the same problem. I've only had this unit for 2 months, and it only worked for about 2 weeks. The programmable thermostat reads 75 and will not adjust. It automatically goes back to 75. The temperature inside is room temperature. There is nothing blocking vents and no dust on the screen on the back of the unit. The fuse looks good. I unplugged it and let it sit overnight and when I plug it in it goes back to 75. When trying to adjust the number will flash and goes right back to 75. The number in the book does not work in my area. In checking the site you provided, it only gives me service providers in Wisconsin, but not locally. Any help is appreicated.

    I am having the same problem. We replaced our carpet with laminate floors and had to unplug the unit. When I plugged it back in, it has never gone below 79. I turned it off and then back on, but it didn't help. My husband is afraid of it getting too hot and cause a fire. The inside of the fridge is not hot, nor is it cold. My husband bought it for me for Christmas last year. I cannot get hold of anyone to help with this problem. Oster emailed me and said they can't get hold of the company, and would contact me when they find out anything. That was a while ago and I still haven't heard from anyone.

    The fan does not appear to work at all. Wondering if we should just throw it out. Unit will not cool temp stays at 65 degrees. My email is not very handy at fixing fuses etc. Thanks for your help, it seems the company that made them went out of business and Mr.Petters is having problems. It was not Oster just the Oster name.

    I have been with same problem. My thermostat stays at 80 all time. I would like to contact the company, but I live in Brasilia, Brazil. How can I contact the Oster costumer service to support me with this problem?

    Does someone know a costumer service in Brazil?

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.

Ice on the back wall; temperature went from 58 degrees to 34 degrees; had to shut off regrigerator

Wine cabinets work off of cycle defrost, so in order to built frost your temperature sensors are not working properly. I would look for corrosion on or in connections to be the fault or problem. Sensors report information to control unit and thats there only job. Its the control unit that dictates function. Look for corrosion to be the problem, clean connection and seal with RTV when connection a corrected.
Good Luck

I Have a Magic Chef MCWC44DZ and it is reading 82 for both zones. When i try to set it back to the normal temps it just locks up and goes back to 82

try to reset your unit unplug it then after a several minutes plug it on then observe unit. check your condensing unit the fan motor if working smoothly or clean your condenser possible dusty. use pressurized water. adjust your thermostat setting.then observe it.

Wine cooler does not get cool - fans do not run the light and temperature display do work

if you hear the compressor tun on but not the fan, replace the fan and you may have to defrost the evaporator coils. if the compressor does not turn on either, it's the thermostat, the defrost timer, or a relay on the main board.

I have an Oster 12-bottle wine celler model OWO912H6H that was a Christmas gift in 2007. I just noticed the temperature is 98 degrees and I cannot get it to come down with the down button. I am very...

Hi, could be faulty thermostat, can you check compressor, is compressor running (working), listen to compressor for clicking sound, unplug it(switched off) for about 20 minutes, replug and let it run (work) for another 20 mins. see if temp. drops, what about temp. inside bottle (wine) cooler, is it 98 or colder, more info. could be valuable. check thermostat, check to see if compressor operates, if cooler temp. 98. remove you products, to another cooler, call mechanic.

Wine cooler temperture

blown fuse in back panel, there are two of them, one you can see, one is in black shrink rap, this is probably problem fuse. It was on my unit and had to cut away the shrink rap and solder in new fuse. Found the problem fuse in top left of panel in back of unit, hope this helps.

Fan doesn't work on oster wine cellar

First question, do you have power to the unit and the cooling fan is not working? If this is the problem then sounds like one of the two fuses in back panel has burnt out.

Temp too high

Welcome to Fizya.,

You said, your Oster wine refrig won't lower its temperature below 76 degrees. I have it for about 5 months, and it worked fine all this time with a setting of 50 degrees. Now it refuses to lower its temp. It reverts back to 76 everytime. Can someone give me any ideas about what is wrong? FYI Mine did not come with an owner's manual.

Sounds like the Thermostat is bad.

The tel # in your Oster Manual is a recording and will not help you!
But New appliances are under Factory warranty and are fixed or replaced no cost to the customer!you are under

Let me know how it goes.

Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler - Error message E3 & E4

Is the compressor running? I don't know this unit, but know that if you are too warm that is the first thing to check. In reading about another unit that had a different problem, it was mentioned that there is a ciruit board. If it has relays on it then these are the most likely culprit. They are either not making contact or staying in contact too long... sometimes just tapping each relay usually a black plastic component will cause it to work intermittently..Not sure if you can get these but call the company help line at 1-800-263-2629.
