    A friend of mine and I each purchased a VinoTemp 12-bottle cooler from Costco a little less than a year ago. We both had the exact same issue where it started ticking and the temp display no longer displayed anything. I also unplugged and replugged and the ticking continued. Ended up returning the product.

    Unfortunately it's been a bit over a year. Problem with my vinotemp vt-12teds is exactly the same. 


    Red/Green diodes flash on the rear, fan looks like it wants to spin but just 'ticks'. Ticking noise emanates from the unit, but cooling has stopped and front display lights are out. No fuses appear anywhere (terribly cheap design). 


    I haven't found a solution anywhere...

You can fix this for $5. You can confirm the problem by taking the back off and see of the red and green led on the circuit board are flashing. They will be steady if the board is ok. The fan is usually just rocking too like it is trying to start. The part is a capacitor and is $5, but you will need to be able to remove and solder a part on the circuit board. If you need the part, just let me know.

    the company has been out of the control board for a while and it requires you to soldier wires. You can get the board and the cooler on ebay for $47 and just swap them out.No soldiering. just type your model vt-12teds on ebay search. David

    Could you identify the exact capacitor that's bad? Tthen I can just buy two of them locally and replace them.

    The red/green light on my upper control lit up then die and the fan stop spinning. The bottom control just ticks and the lights flicker. Where would I buy the capacitor?

Based on what you described, it sounds like there may be a problem with the control board, the control board can be purchased from the manufacturer Vinotemp 800-777-8466. I believe the cost is $34.95.

It's the overload protector thats gone bad. Remove the plastic cover on the side of the compressor( LG model NS30LACG). The OLP is the one on top. If you open it up you will find that it may have some burn marks from electrical arcing. The part number is on the side (P6R8MC). Do a Google search for it. It costs about 12 bucks.

You may need to change the cooling system on the unit if the unit is free of dust and still does not cool.

My vinotemp vt60 starts cooling then stops


I sounds to me like the compressor is overheating. There is an overload on the compressor itself. Follow the wires where they go into the compressor. There will be a black wire going from the power cord to the overload. These can be purchased at appliance parts stores. Make sure there is no dirt build up on condenser coils or a kink in the tubing.

Not sure, but did you clean the filter in the back? Ours has that, and the temp starts creeping up every few weeks until I clean it. But we've never been able to get it below 58 or so, and in the last year, not below 60. I think that's just the nature of this type of cooling. Our house is also at 80. But, can keep it at 60 with the above cleaning.

My VT-12TEDi stopped working after about six months; the common ticking sound from the controller board. After a little research, I found the 16V 1000uF 16mmx10mm capacitor (silver and black can) on the board (upper left corner) was bad. Visual indications are the typical "popped" top of the capacitor can. I purchased a quality replacement capacitor for less than $1 and replaced it. It was a very easy soldiering job that most people with a pencil iron could do. The unit works great now and I don't expect it to go out again anytime soon.

Vinotemp VT-16TEDS has light on but doesn't cool


First check the grating over the fan in the back. If it is covered with dust, there won't be enough air flow and the unit won't cool. Clean the dust off and see if it cools back down. It may take a long time to cool down if it is full of wine, so I recommend taking the wine out to test if it works.
