Question about VinoTemp VT-58 Wine Cooler

Open Question

Vinotemp vt 58 is cycling +/- 5 degrees F

New VT 58 from Vinotemp. Put a dozen bottles of wine in it and while it got down to the desired temperature, 55 F, it keeps cycling between 50 F and 60 F. That seems like too broad a range to me, not good for my wine.

    I talked with Vinotemp customer support and they indicated that this was not unusual. Their spec is for the temp to cycle 7-8 degrees. Mine is a little outside of that when set at 55 F. But I turned it down to 53F, a drinking temp for complex whites, and it's now cycling between 50-57F. So I'm ok. I was concerned because my previous wine cabinet was thermoelectric and only cycled +/- 2 degrees. Vinotemp told me that thermoelectrics "run" constantly and thus can maintain that kind of precision. (I was wondering why the warranty is only 3 months for the thermoelectrics). Vinotemps testing indicates that when cycling 7-8 degrees, the temperature inside wine bottles changes less than 1 degree.

    Typo in my previous comment: my thermoelectric cycled only +/- 1 degree, with a range of 2 degree.

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

It will either be the thermal resistor or the controller of which the electronic thermostat is a part and yes it can be repaired. It is a reasonably common and cheap fault to repair. If you go to the following link you can get the service manual FOC

SOURCE: I have a Vinotemp VT-12TEDS-2Z Dual Zone

This cooler uses the Peltier effect = the current passing thru a very special resistance provides the cooling. Because of that there are effectively 2 separate electrical circuits inside your cooler:
1, the mains voltage that powers the Peltier element and the cooling fan - controlled by a relay
2. the low voltage that powers the control board and the display - this is the one that failed in your case.
To fix it you will have to open the front cover , access the board and test it: if it gets power then the board itself has failed; if it doesn't then its the power source and you will have to find out why it failed - probably it was damaged when another component failed and you will have to find out which one before putting a new source in.
It's a relatively complicated job that requires a good experience - if you don't have it then call an certified repairman.

Is there such thing as a single bottle wine cooler?


Of course! There is a wide variety of single cooling systems for wine bottles. We don't drink a lot of wine, but when we have guests over I like to have the wine chilled properly. I prefer the stainless steel coolers, since the look more sleek and stylish.

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.

Vinotemp (VT-60), cools, but doesn't turn off regardless of the temp setting. It will run, cut off for aprox 5 seconds, then continue running. Is thermostat broken? Can it be repaired?

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.

Vinotemp VT-60 Condenser won't shut off, unit running way too cold


It might be a sensor or control board problem. Any appliance repair place should be able to help you out with this. Or you can try contacting the manufacturer directly for help or if you need to purchase replacement parts. Otherwise, my cheapest suggestion would be to hook the cooler up to a timer, so you can turn the unit on and off maybe every 20 minutes or so. That should help keep it from causing more harm and then you can monitor the temperature with a thermometer. Hope that helps!
