Question about Vinotheque Whisperkool 3000 Wine Cooling Unit (Max Room Size = 650 cu ft)

1 Answer

Cool air outlets frozen over with ice

I have a Whisperkool Model 3000 wine cellar cooler. Recently, it developed about an inch of ice on each of the two cool air outlets. The unit continued to operate during the ice build up. What is the likely cause of this problem?

And the temperature hasn't changed at all (still set at 55ºF)? A troubleshooting guide says you can check if the cause is because too much heat was lost to adjacent areas, and you can try to add more insulation around the ductwork and ensure doorways and glass panels are sealed. Other than that... not sure. If it's older, maybe you can look into a new Whisperkool split system or cooling system (there's some great ones on http://www.vintagecellars.com).

WK[L] 3000 unit can not change the set temperature. It is stuck on 64 degrees. The unit continues to run and the temperature shows 55.


IVE SEN THIS ISSUE BEFORE

THE FACT THAT YOU CANT CHANGE THE SET COOL POINT ON THE UNIT BELOW 64 IS A SYMPTOM OF A DAMAGED CONTROL BOARD (SENTRY III), NOW THE UNIT CONTINUING TO COOL DOWN BELOW THE SET COOL POINT OF 64 AND GOING ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 55 IS MOST LIKELY THE RELAY.
I HAVE FIXED THIS EXACT SAME ISSUE BY REPLACING THE CONTROL BOARD AND RELAY ON THE UNIT.

My wine cellar (Model: ow0912H6H) still runs but it does not cool. What can I do? I don't believe that there is a compresser in ot. I don't know what cools it.


I had the same problem and noticed that the lint screen behind the cooler was full of lint where it was almost completely clogged. I vacummed it and it seems to have done the trick.

Whisperkool 4200 icing up


Hi, Bob:

Misery loves company, so I'm posting this even if it isn't in time to help you.

I had an XLT 8000 with similar problems. Vinotheque wanted to do the exchange program ($2,500+), and I was told the older aluminum coils might have leaked, and the exchange models come w/ SS coils. I was near to biting on that, when I decided to have a local refrigeration shop check it out.

Here's what they found--A MANUFACTURING DEFECT. It seems there are small copper capillary tubes that circulate the refrigerant. If they touch each other, with normal operating vibration they can wear holes in each other and the refrigerant can leak out. The leak can be very slow. According to the guy who fixed it (all for $219, and much of that was for drilling out the riveted-closed enclosure), "crossed cap tubes" is a Bush League mistake, akin to not putting oil in your car's crankcase.

I'm not saying WhisperKOOL/Vinotheque did this on purpose, knowing there would be an eventual failure and an opportunity to make another sale. But what the service guy told me was that IF the manufacturer was without scruples, a crossed cap tube would be the perfect way to take advantage of an unsuspecting customer.

My fix? Drill out the rivets, and find a local qualified service tech. Fixed in hours for $219 or in weeks with an exchange for $2,500... You choose.

Ice is forming on the outlet holes on the face of my 4200 xlt


you should check to see if the fan at the back of the unit is operating, and you also need to check for dust build up, if the fan is working then clean and defrost the unit, try it again, make sure there is nothing blocking the airflow, if the motor is not running, replace the motor, hope that helps

Cuisinart Private Reserve wine cellar


It is normal. The goofy thing about this wine cellar is that once the ambient temperature is above 70 degrees - which is actually a low room temperature - the fan works constantly. You would have to make sure the wine cellar is in an area that stays below 68 degrees (brrrr) for it to shut off sometimes.
