Re: Wine cooler stopped cooling
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?

If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.
Ok check the power supply input. Assume you have do e that and all ok. More than likely it could be a thermostat or compressor gas leakage. Has the compressor been running more than usual before it gave up working. Check for rust on the internal coils as sometimes they fail. Depending on what you paid for the wine cooler it may be cheaper to simply replace it. Can highly recommend Delongi 145
litre bar fridge, after replacing several cheaper brands and it is very reliable and cools really well though they are not at the cheap end of the market. You get what you pay for with appliances. Best of luck resolving the problem but if the wine cooler no longer is getting cold but the compressor continues to run, you can bet that it's out if gas from a leak in the internal pipe work and generally not worth attempting to either locate and or repair.
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.
Turn the temperature dial to the lowest temperature setting. Wait 24 hours for the wine cooler to reach the desired temperature. Also, turn the wine cooler off and inspect the fan. If the fan if it's running or not.
Lastly, check the compressor.
These are the areas that could make your wine cooler stop cooling; the temperatue settings (Thermostat), then Fan and the compressor.
Check these three areas and let me have a feed back.
Possible bad thermostat. Bypass the thermostat wire to run the compressor. If the compressor start, replace the thermostat.
On the other hand if the compressor is running, and there is no cooling; there is a leak and all the refrigerant probably escaped. If it is the case, you need to call serviceman and have him evaluate the wine cooler for possible repairs.
P.S. The serviceman may charge a fee for evaluating or estimating the cost of repairs.
Hi, could be faulty thermostat, can you check compressor, is compressor running (working), listen to compressor for clicking sound, unplug it(switched off) for about 20 minutes, replug and let it run (work) for another 20 mins. see if temp. drops, what about temp. inside bottle (wine) cooler, is it 98 or colder, more info. could be valuable. check thermostat, check to see if compressor operates, if cooler temp. 98. remove you products, to another cooler, call mechanic.
Once I figured out there were black plastic caps covering the screws holding the inside back panel in place, it was an easy fix. The cooler is now up and running. Thank you for giving me the $10 incentive to figure it out myself.
Few things to check here. If the compressor is not running then the problem may be a bad thermostat or the compressor start device (ptc starter). Most common would be the thermostat on wine coolers. Also need to check if the fan is running. If everything is running then you have a sealed system problem. If the fan is the only thing that is not running that will cause a no cool situation.
