Question about VinoTemp (VT60GNV) Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Vinotemp wine cooler won't cool

I have a winecooler that I bought at costco about 2 years ago.  When I got it it really didnt cool. So I let it sit figuring I would get around to fixing it or having one of their tech's come out and fix my problem.  Then I tried switching outlets after it sitting for a couple of months.  It Worked!!  I had my floors cleaned about 6 months later and had to unplug it to move it.  When I went to plug it back in it reverted back to the same problem.  Running but not cooling. It sounds like a fan is on but I'm not hearing the ticking, tinking I did when it was cooling.  I was frustrated and tried another outlet and it still didn't work.  I called vinotemp and of course the 1 year warranty had expired the month before I called even though I only had it on for about 6 months.  Ive let it sit for almost a year. Ive just tried to use it again and again it runs but won't cool.  Do I not have enough electricity to run it? Not enough Amps or something?  Or is their no more freon? Or compressor busted?  I'm at a loss. Thought I would check online before I had a repair man come in.  If I have to go with a repair man how much would it be to replace a compressor in this small unit, if that's the problem?

    I had the same problem it was my compressor and it could not be fixed without replacing the whole thing.  Costco did return the money.

    I have the same problem, display always stays at 76 deg. I traced the schematic and Fan on, display works, fuse ok in interconnect board and the compressor has the 120 volts required. However, it appears that the compressor kicks on, draws the current down to 116 Volts and then shuts off. Looks like the compressor is bad. Replacing it is not possible without someone who can install freon R134A back into the system. I am taking mine to a repair place and of course have to pay the $35.00 fee for them to inspect it again and give me a quote on what it will cost to replace the compressor. I looked for the compressor unit online and can't find that specific LG model, go figure. Will let you know sometime next week what it runs to get them fixed.

It sounds like your control module is bad. Vinotemp does list the replacement part as available at a cost of around $35

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

What would be problem with NewAir AW-180E winecooler and would it be worth the cost to repair it?

What was the cost to buy it or a new one? How long have you had it. If the circuit board needs diagnosing and repair that could add up quickly in cost.

Remove windows 8 and windows 8.1 back to windows 7

Buy Windows 8 Activation Key 64bit 32bit
Hearing all the negative sentiments toward the Windows 8 activation key OS made me really cautious in upgrading from Windows 7.
Finally, my Windows 7 became buggy enough that I decided it was time for me to go ahead and upgrade.
The days of reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling Windows OS (95, 98, XP...), when the computer started to act up, are over. I got the pro upgrade version....for a really great price on .
I purchased all my software from them. They are the best online store I ever buy.
Installation took a while, with lots of downloading and installing drivers, updates...etc.
When it was finally done, computer was running a lot faster, and all of the weird behaviors of previous installation were gone.
Now as far as using the new OS, it really wasn't that big of a deal. Yes, it's different from the previous Windows; but after 2 or 3 days, I've picked up so many cool features that I truly believe it's a superior OS compared to the previous Windows releases. Really.
The interface is quite convenient once you figure out how to use all the features and what happens when you move your cursor around the screen.
Oh, yeah, and I don't have a touchscreen. Although I'm certain that a touchscreen would definitely be a more effective way to navigate Windows 8, I really have no problems using just the mouse.
So, there you have it. I love this new OS.

Loud noise

The compressor fan is making the noise and causing overheating as well. Easy fix. Call Danby with model # and they can figure out correct fan. Part will cost around $10 and is easy to replace. Plug and play with screws. Good luck

Don't cool-no refund/satisfaction from Oster.

Ok, fist problem was unit quit working..if it quit cooling yet lights still worked inside and still had power readings on door is not power coord. If the unit stoped cooling is probably fuse and there are two of them in back of unit. One fuse clearly can be seen, the other is coated with a black shrink fit coating and is not well seen. This second fuse is the problem, you will need to replace it. I have same unit and this is what I had to do to get it cooling again.

Vinotemp 24 - keep hearing ticking sound

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.
