Question about VinoTemp 28Bottle FreeStanding Wine Cellar Black VT28TEDS Wine Cooler

Open Question

I recently replaced the 16v 1000uf capacitor on my vinotemp 28-TEDS after the red and green lights started blinking and clicking and the cooler stopped working. I also replaced all three fans with some I bought for $6.99 each at a local electronics store. When I plugged it back in, it worked, but the next day or so, the green light started blinking again and now it's gone out completely. The cooler is still working, but it's now down to 51 degrees and continuing to fall. I'm wondering if I did a poor job of soldering the new capacitor on, or maybe the new fans didn't match up exactly to the old ones, so they caused a problem somehow.

It sounds like you're having a control board PCB issue. You can often get replacement parts directly from Vinotemp. Of course, I'm sure the issue will be easier to resolve if your unit is still under warranty. If not, they should still be able to sell you the parts you need and then you or a qualified repair person can replace whatevers needed. Instructions for some service issues can be found on the Vinotemp website in the Customer Service section. You can also request service for your unit there. Hope you get it fixed!

SOURCE: Vinotemp VT-16TEDS has light on but doesn't cool

You may need to change the cooling system on the unit if the unit is free of dust and still does not cool.

SOURCE: Our 18 bottle vinotemp cooler quit cooling, the electrical is ok

Sounds like the cooling unit, i.e. heat sink and controller chip. $35 + $10 shipping from vinotemp, and you install yourself. I'm looking at the same thing (on the 28TEDS), though mine came after having to replace (for $45 and my own installation, incl. soldering) the circuit board. I hope yours doesn't go, too. I've read of others. Pretty poor quality parts they appear to use. I'm trying to find somewhere to buy the controller chip on its own, as the heat sink is simply a hunk of metal. Hopefully that's do-able, as it is with computer cpu's.

How To Test the Compressor Relay The compressor relay's purpose is to start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the refrigerator the relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.

Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.
Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay , overload protector and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor.


Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.


Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
There are two types of relays you may encounter, wire coil and solid state. If the relay has an exposed wound wire coil it can be tested for continuity. Otherwise, the relay is of solid state design and requires specialized equipment for testing.

I have a 12 bottle vinotemp that is making a chirping sound. The fan is slow and then faster, also there is a red & green lite on the circut board that flashes. Where can i see about getting this...


I have a different model Vinotemp, but experienced the same exact problem described here where the LEDs on the controller board blinks and there is a clicking or chirping noise. It turns out there was a bad electrolytic capacitor on the controller board that was visibly noticeable (it was bulging). Replacing the capacitor fixed the problem. On my model, it was a 1000 microfarad 16v cap, available at RadioShack or any store that sells electronic components for less than $1. Of course, you will need some soldering skills for this fix.

My VinoTemp stopped working. When I opened the back cover there is a red and green LED light blinking really fast. What does that mean?


This problem is typically found in the control board circuit. Probably the 1000MFD 16V Capacitor on the DC side of the PCB may be at fault. The Fix is to replace the capacitor which can be purchased at any Radio Shack for about $2.00. Procedure is to de-solder the the bad component and solder the replacement. This is a polarized component so pay attention the polarity when installing. Test the fix; Properly reinstall the PCB wiring, and Enjoy your Chilled Wine. Recardo.

Power was off


You need to replace 4 capacitors on the DM board. It is located inside a metal box on the left side of the set, looking from the rear. The original parts are 1000uf 16v. You will need to install 1000uf 25v or 35v. They are located at the top of the board and are green colored.

My VT-12TEDi stopped working after about six months; the common ticking sound from the controller board. After a little research, I found the 16V 1000uF 16mmx10mm capacitor (silver and black can) on the board (upper left corner) was bad. Visual indications are the typical "popped" top of the capacitor can. I purchased a quality replacement capacitor for less than $1 and replaced it. It was a very easy soldiering job that most people with a pencil iron could do. The unit works great now and I don't expect it to go out again anytime soon.

Blinking green power light & shut down


There are (4) 1000uf @35V capacitors all together on the DM board that need to be replaced some models have 1000uf @ 16V but they are all right beside each other and all rated at 1000ufs the voltages will be stamped on the capacitor along with the uf ratings.

Mitsubishi WD 73827 Will not turn on


Does the LED blink a two digit code. This set has 2 1000uf @16V capacitors on the PWB that will cause this symptom . Let me know if you need further assistance, there are also 4 1000uf @ 35V on the DM and 3 1000uf@16v on the FMT that will cause all kinds of problems if you change the PWB capacitors I would change the ones on the other boards
