Question about Avanti EWC28 Wine Cooler

Open Question

Not cooling sufficiently

And when i turn it to coolest setting, it just sounds so noisy. I guess these thermoelectric devices are just not made to chill drinks (get to near freezing temperatures).

Any ideas what can be done? I am an electircal engineer, anything on the market i can use to modify the wine cooler to be more efficient?

SOURCE: does not chill drinks

you wrote that the wine cooler "only cools to 12 degrees minimum" I don't understand the problem?
12 degrees is really cold, in fact its freezing.

This cooler uses the Peltier effect = the current passing thru a very special resistance provides the cooling. Because of that there are effectively 2 separate electrical circuits inside your cooler:
1, the mains voltage that powers the Peltier element and the cooling fan - controlled by a relay
2. the low voltage that powers the control board and the display - this is the one that failed in your case.
To fix it you will have to open the front cover , access the board and test it: if it gets power then the board itself has failed; if it doesn't then its the power source and you will have to find out why it failed - probably it was damaged when another component failed and you will have to find out which one before putting a new source in.
It's a relatively complicated job that requires a good experience - if you don't have it then call an certified repairman.

Top unit won't cool


Usually with thermoelectrics they either work or they dont. Not easily repairable unless you are a competent technician as the components need metering. Sounds like a heater element gone.

Does a thermoelectric wine cooler have a ventilation system?


Absolutely, every wine cooling system has to have a ventilation system that will channel the heat generated in the operation, outside of the unit, including the thermoelectric wine cooler.

Why should I buy a thermoelectric wine cooler as opposed to a compressor model?


There are many reasons to purchase a thermoelectric cooler including, but not limited to, being quiet and eco-friendly. Personally, I prefer thermoelectric coolers because they don't vibrate. The vibration of a compressor cooling system can cause the sediments in the wine to be disturbed and affect the flavor/taste of the wine.

How do I know whether a thermoelectric cooling system is better for me than a compressor?


This depends on several factors: how much wine you keep on hand, where you will be putting the cooler (cool/warm room in the house) and if you are buying a freestanding cooler/built-in. If you never have more than two cases, plan on keeping the cooler somewhere it won't get too warm and you want a freestanding cooler, you should look into purchasing a thermoelectric cooling system.

What is a thermoelectric wine cooling system?


Thermoelectric cooling is best used in small wine coolers. Small fans from inside the cooling fridge evenly dispense cool temperatures throughout the interior of the unit.
