Question about Breezaire WKCE 2200 Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Buy whole unit or replace motor

I have Breezair wk2200 wine cellar cooling unit which is not working. Technician said the fan motor in the back (condenser fan?) has burnt out. His recommendation is to replace the whole unit at a cost of $700. Can I just replace the fan motor? If so where can I get it and who to contact for putting it in? I live in Sugar Land, TX

My 2200 unit stoped cooling why


IF YOUR UNIT IS A WK2200 IT SHOULD HAVE A SCREW ADJUSTMENT(THERMOSTAT) IN BETWEEN THE TWO BROWN GRILLS. IF SO IF THE FANS ARE RUNNING ON BOTH SIDES COLD AND HOT SIDE, AND NO COLD AIR IS BEING PRODUCED YOU PROBABLY HAVE A FREON LEAK AND THE UNIT REQUIRES A RECHARGE AFTER REPAIRING THE LEAK.

Cooling unit is running, but interior is not cool.


How long have you had this unit and did it quit suddenly or did it fail intermittently. Do you mean running where you can hear the fan and the light comes on when you open the wine cellar door? If so, I would suspect the starting relay failure on your cooler which should be very easy to replace. There should be a wiring diragram on the back of your unit somewhere and could be labeled (RT). Your compressor would be the last thing I would suspect.

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.

Haier wine cellar HVTS18DABB top zone won't cool.


Maybe not the answer for everyone, but I proved it was the fan by removing the back panel, removing the fan and finger guard, then placing a small desktop fan that was the same size as the top-rear fan on the wine fridge. Pumping air directly over the heat sink allowed the unit to attain the temperature set on the front panel. The old fan would either not turn at all, or too slowly to be effective. These fans are junk. Especially after finding articles such as this out in different forums for the same issue. I have the HVTS18DABB model unit and the replacement fan is a simple 120mm square, 25mm deep 12V DC fan. Similar or the same as you see in computer chassis. Found some inexpensive, high CFM, low noise fans from the following site:
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com
Specific fan for my application was the model SY1225SL12SH. Although I did order a second fan that is similar in case the .5amps was too high and I popped a fuse. These fans are inexpensive folks, as long as you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty. Good luck.

Kitchenaid Wine Cellar-model # KUWS2246EBLO Power on switch does not turn on cooling compressor. Lite will come on.


Try tapping on the thermostat it is probably sticking.
If it comes on then you will need to replace the thermostat.
Check the start relay on the compressor.
Check the fan motor on the compressor is it running?
Clean lint from underneath on the condensing coil.
