Re: Dose not get cool enough

I don't know what temperatures it should hold, but try cleaning out any radiator ribs on the back/underside. If there get clogged with dust and dirt they don't get rid of the heat as easily, and that will cause it not to cool as it should. Also check any thermostat settings if there is such a thing on it.

How do I fix my 16 bottle wine cooler? It has stopped cooling.

You don't indicate the brand or model but it sounds like it is a smart enough device that it provides a trouble indication via the flashing light which I haven't hear of before. Just confirm another device works properly from the receptacles you tried. Is the unit hot? some have overtemp protection - let it cool and try again.

FR23SL Uses Peltier Cooling - No compressor nor freon....

Luzer - Thanks for the very helpful solution. My cooler has the problem described. When I take off the back and plug it back in, all three fans run, but the unit does not get cold. Is it possible that it needs new fans anyway (like maybe they are going but not moving enough air to generate the effect)? Or woudl it be something else?

The cooler is not cooling, the temperature keeps going.

there are few things that might be the reason why is this happening.

1. Check the fan

2. check if there is any leak(oil leak) from your tubes or piping

3. have your compressor check, yes it maybe running but the question is thus it gives enough compression to provide the temperature you desired

Loud noise

The compressor fan is making the noise and causing overheating as well. Easy fix. Call Danby with model # and they can figure out correct fan. Part will cost around $10 and is easy to replace. Plug and play with screws. Good luck

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

First check the grating over the fan in the back. If it is covered with dust, there won't be enough air flow and the unit won't cool. Clean the dust off and see if it cools back down. It may take a long time to cool down if it is full of wine, so I recommend taking the wine out to test if it works.

U-Line 15WC wine cooler not working

First make sure your condenser is clean and the fan is going. If everything is running and still doesnt cool enough then you need a repair person to check the sealed system.
