Your Peltier is most likely shot! You can fix it for less than $10 in about 30 minutes.
Take the back of the fridge apart and remove the fan and aluminum heat-sync. Sandwiched in between the heatsync you'll see the Peltier pad with two wires coming off it. That's what you need to replace. The peltier has a make and model number on it. I would recommend ordering the same make and model. The specs should be 12v DC and less than 5amp and 60 watt draw. Your wine cooler's power supply can only output 5amp and 60watt max power. When you install the new Peltier you'll need to spread new thermal compound on both sides of the Peltier. I recommend Artic Silver Ceramique. You can buy this at your local Radio Shack or any computer store where they sell motherboards and CPUs. Ceramique Thermal Compound
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with. Indications of laptop overheating problem:
The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
The laptop suddenly
shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop
was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10
minutes of operation.
The laptop works
fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any
memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software,
video editing software, etc.).
If the CPU heatsink
is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air
and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom
and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not
work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is
Open the laptop
case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you
can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop.
Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A135) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes
unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to
replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
If the processor is overheating, check the fan to make sure it is turning freely but does not have sloppy bearings. Make sure the fins are clean. If these are OK, replace the thermal transfer compound between the processor and the heat sink. If the compound is too thick or is dried up and hardened, it will not transfer heat efficiently. I get the best results with a thin layer of silver-based compound - just barely enough to cover the chip evenly. Be sure to clean both the heat sink and processor thoroughly before applying the new compound. Use isopropyl alcohol for cleaning if necessary.
didn't provide your CPU type, it seems your motherboard has a 462 (A) CPU
socket. Newegg.com is notorious for its sales in computer parts, so I
would recommend purchasing from them as they are a reliable company.
The link I provided below is a product that should meet your needs, and it's
pretty cheap for only $9.99, plus $2.99 shipping. Please remember to also use
thermal compound in between your CPU and heatsink as well.
If you are unfamiliar with what thermal compound does, it helps transfer the
heat from the CPU to the heatsink, and is a MUST HAVE. If you were to not have
thermal compound your computer could have overheating issues. As
a recommendation for thermal compound Arctic Wolf is well rated, and one of the
best. Thermal compound will also run you about $9.99. Link is provided below.
Depends what you intend to do with your computer, if its lots of gaming, and pushing your pc to its limits, you will need a good quality thermal compound (arctic silver), if its just normal stuff a cheaper heat sink compound will do, i use Servisol, its cheap and works well
Greetings, I believe that the 'silver pad' you are talking about is likely a thermal pad which creates intimate thermal contact in the same manner as a thermal compound. As long as the pad has not deteriorated then you can reuse it. If that helped please rate me well. For Reference: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2295074 Take Care, -WN
hey buddy you can do, but the grease removers an un-necessary item. this stuff will wipe off with a soft cloth.
or at worst, a very blunt plastic scraper.
you only need the tinyist amount of thermal paste.
