Question about Avanti EWC28 Wine Cooler
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?
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.
