I have seen this before. Get the thermostat off and put it's 2 wires together just to SEE if the wine cooler comes on. Be careful not to let it bite ya or ground against the cabinet. If it runs then thermostat replacement needed, now how simple is that?

Wine cooler cools but has a very loud, too loud to ignore, whirring sound when it is in cooling mode. Any ideas?


And when the wine is cooled ... the noise stops?
It's like a refrigerator ... it only operates when it it is reducing temperatures. Once things have cooled, the system cuts out.

If your wine cooler stops making a noise when the wine is cooled ..ok.

Unit will not stay cool. Is it a thermostat, compressor?


Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly
leaking refrigerant.
THERMOSTAT FAILURE CHECK:
A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run,
then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat.
COMPRESSOR FAILURE CHECK:
If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not
sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping).
REFRIGERANT LEAK CHECK:
If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running
almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.

The wine cooler light works but it does not cool.


so the light tell us that it has power . you need to ck the fan underneath in back and make sure it is running and feel the compressor it runs when the fan does . and you may nees gas in the unit . . so ck the fans / then the compressor see if hot or can you feel it running and then the refergent . and the thermostat down in front . andy of these could cause the no cool problem. mm hope this has helped ..feed back pls ..

MCWC52B wine cooler stopped cooling, compressor hot


Turn it off and place a small electric fan by compressor to cool it down.
When you turn it back on, see if you hear a clicking noise. This would indicate starting components need checking.

It is not cooling. Not running. It RARELY gets opened, recently opened the door and found it was not cooling. Doesn't even appear to be running.


If your unit doesnt run and no fan or compressor then replace the thermostat. That would be the only thing that turns on the compressor and fan

Describe your uline wine cooler Problem ULINE WC2015: Light comes on but unit won't run. Cleaned as discussed in owners manual. Need help!


OK if you have a 20 series and you have a light and no fan or compressor then you need a thermostat. This will have 2 wires to it and if you bypass the thermostat the unit should run. If it does then replace the thermostat
