Try this, turn the unit upside down and let it sit for 30 minutes, then turn right sidfe up and let it sit for the same time. Then turn it back oin aand it should work fine. What you are doing is burping the unit(getting the ammonia to all come back together) Thanks for visiting this site.

I have a thermoelectric wine cooler (heintzman DC2-40C) that no longer cools as it should....help....


Thermoelectric devices (or modules) require direct current (DC) for operation. Alternating current (AC), the form of electricity found in wall outlets, causes a thermoelectric device to alternate between heating and cooling, rendering it effectively useless. "Ripple" is the AC component of DC current and occurs when a power supply does not completely convert AC current to DC current.
You just might want to find out why the AC is not turning to the DC required, This could be a matter of chaning outlet plug or maybe the Ower pack that coverts the AC to DC.

(1.7 cu) Chefmate Fridge Doesn't Get Cold


The Chefmate 1.7 fridge uses a thermalelectric device (TED) to provide cold air. There are no moving parts there. The problem is usually in the power supply. That is the PCB on the left side behind the back cover. If the fans are running then your thermostat is bad or the TED is cracked. You can buy these ebay or other places on line. To change one you must carefully remove the large heat sink. The TED itself is only about two inches square. If you decide to replace this unit be sure to get a supply of heat sink glue. Otherwise you will end up with a hot (or cold) spot on the TED possitly causing another crack.

I am not getting water thou the ice maker nor the water dispenser


Check the water valve where the water supply line comes into your frig. If you are not getting any water at all then it seems as though there is no water getting to the frig through the water supply line or the water valve is bad or not getting any voltage to work properly.
