Aficionado hvt18dfbb is running but NO TEMP CHANGE

Hell all! Please offer suggestions to the layperson on what to to look at and how to fix. -- please note the product i have is the Aficionado hvt18dfbb (18 bottle - 2 zone cooler) and NOT the Haier product. Got this item used and was told it worked. The panel lights up, the buttons work (+/- temp for top and for bottom), the fans are running and the machine is humming. however:the temperature changes by only one degree! The digital read shows a 1 degree change in 5 days of running. i've taken the back off & vaccuumed the dust out. The circut board has no obvious signes of overheating. what parts or peices should i look at replacing or testing *and how would i test*? Please respond in lay-person terminology so i may best understand what you are offering for solutions! Thank you

There is no compressor on these units. These units use a Peltier cold/hot module where the cold side faces the heat sink and the fan exhausts the heat side. Another fan sends the cool side into the frig. I have the same unit, I am experiencing the same issue. I was looking to change out the Peltier modules (about $7 each) and try that. I did find a replacement Control Board is about $45 and if the Peltier change doesn't work this may be my next step.

SOURCE: I have a Haier 42

Replace the thermostat and/or bad control board. If you don't have electronic repair skills then it would be cheaper to go buy a new one then hire someone to repair it.

does the compressor run ? if so you could have a low refrigerant charge, a sealed unit resrtiction, leak or defective compressor.

SOURCE: Both zones of the wine


Check the thermostat for temperature setting. Also check the condenser coils and clean them if found clogged with dust. Unplug the wine cooler and wait for a couple of hours before plugging it again. If you can hear it running or whining, perhaps the compressor is being overheated. Test various components such as temperature control knob, evaporator fan, defrost timer, compressor relay, overload protector and the compressor motor.

Take care.

I have a Aficionado refrigerator and the compressor will not start. I hear the starter clicking

The clicking is the sound of the Klixon (overload). It sounds like the compressor isn't starting for some reason. This is common if the unit's cycle was disrupted (such as a power disruption) as the pressure in the high and low side takes a little while to equalize. A hard start kit could be installed which adds a capacitor to the starting circuit of the compressor might help temporarily.

How can I adjust the temperature at which my dishes are washed?

We all wish we had a lava-scrub cycle for that stubborn pan.

The answer can be simple.. but first an important F.Y.I. warning.

As is a forum for problems and solutions, the information offered herein is not for the layperson. As we do not wish our advice to cause further problems, kindly refer instead to a licensed and insured professional before attempting the actual labor.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
There is, in nearly every case, no consumer temperature adjustment on the unit. The common person would conclude that the only way to get hotter water is to set your water heater higher. Water heater manufacturers label their units specifically to avoid high temp hazards.

This is problematic AND dangerous! If it is set too high, you risk not only scalding everyone in the house (as the water temp from every hot fixture will suddenly increase!), but also premature failure of the hot water lines, heater elements and/or the tank itself... not to mention the inlet or seals of any appliance or apparatus fed by hot water.

That said, I offer a simple solution.

You can purchase a small in-line heater (normally used in mall in-store bathrooms or small rented offices) and have it installed just before the inlet of your appliance, as not to effect any other water outlet.

Safety first.

Watch doesn't talk anymore

If the battery is not visible by removing the back then this is not a battery change that I recommend for the layperson. I suggest taking this to a watchmaker or technician. This is because the battery powering the circuit board for sound maybe under the circuit board and not easily accessible without removing the movement and separating the circuit board from the movement. Also you should know that these sound boards are sensative and can easily be damaged.

Haier aficionado model AES44BPG compressor wont stay on


I had the same problem. Mine turned out to be the PTC starter. Checked the compressor coil resistance and it ws fine. Replaced the PTC starter with Item #: 1268268 from and it started right up. The PTC starter was an exact replacement.

Hope this helps some else trying to solve this problem. To bad Haier doesn't offer this part!!

Doug, convergence circuit is failing, involves removing one of the boards, replacing the convergence IC`s and probably a couple of burnt resistors, not a "layperson repair", requires soldering experience, accurate voltmeter to find the bad resistors, etc. I would suggest calling a tv tech for this repair, questions? e-mail me back BMW Rider

Heavy red lines all over

red lines running from left to right across the screen? or parallel
to say a persons body? the first is retrace lines the second is convergence, the back has to come off the set regardless, a layperson can attempt to fix the retrace by turning down the "screen control", I would not advise you to try & replace the convergence circuit.
