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!

Sounds like the compressor is frozen - sound you hear is the clixon a special sort of resettable fuse on compressors. When they do not start or overheat, it kills the power - when it cools power is restored until it reheats again and .......................

Use ammeter to confirm this - it will show a much greater than normal current draw.

My LG ice maker fan is making a really loud noise right after the water stops going in


Hello, Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move air through the freezer and refrigerator compartment. This fan runs when ever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:
  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall,near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, half way up or near the top.
Overtime the fan may become noisy, usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.
To find out if the fan is causing the noise,just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches, if the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor(if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).
Thanks

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.

It stop working and there is a clicking noise in the back area.


first unplug unit for a few hours . remove back . under there there is a compressor and a fan plug in did the fan motor start itself ? if not touch blade a little , did it start now ? if so you have a bad fan motor ( real common with this cooler ) if the fan allways ran no problem you have a bad start relay on the compressor ( this is another real common problem ) you need to order a fan motor and or a start relay from vinotemp . on an order i made a week ago they had the motor but not the relay (relay kit ) it was on backorder , you may get lucky i just looked i do not have the phone #with me but you can fiind it on there website (thats where i found it ) good luck ps :on second thought dont play around , order the fan motor and the relay together no mater if the fan is working or not , even if it is it will not be for long Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob .

Clicking


This unit, I believe is a piezo electric cooling/warming unit. It's possible that after or during your defrost, the control board was exposed to excess moisture... whether by condensation (sweating), evaporation or direct contact with the melted water. In this case, if you plugged the unit in before allowing sufficient dry time, it would have shorted your control board. Possibly allow the unit to dry (unplugged) for 24-48 hours and retry. If the same symptom occurs, replace the control board.
