Haier Thermoelectric Wine Cooler

I have a Model: HVUEB06BSS wine cooler that was working fine until I turned of a circuit breaker to fix a broken socket in the garage. I was unaware that the circuit in the laundry room where the cooler was plugged in was on the same breaker. After turning the circuit back on, the cooler was no longer working. When the cooler is plugged in and turned on, the display lights blink and the temperture display comes on but the cooler will not stay on. I removed the back panel and looked inside but there is only a circuit board and there is no reset switch. Is there anything I can do to fix it or should I put it out for the trash?

    The model number I gave is correct. The serial number is 070908443. It is actually not under the Large Appliance/Refrigerator catagory but I could not find a catagory for wine coolers. The unit was made in China 0907 (I assume that is Sept. 2007). Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I left the door on the unit open over night with the power unplugged. Upon plugging it in again, nothing happens but the temperature display flashes. If I press the light button for lighting the inside of the cooler, it also flashes. Pushing the temperature up and down buttons doesn't seem to do anything.

Hi, Well not much to go on but this is not a complicated unit. Please bear with me as we go back and forth for this type of long distance troubleshooting. The control board on this type of unit uses ambient temperature and that is what should be displayed when first turned on. Knowing that; the unit will not run if the setpoint is lower than the ambient temp. The unit operates on 27F degree difference from ambient. So lets do this, unplug the unit, remove your stuff if any, open the door for a couple hours till the unit stabilizes to room temp. Close the door, plug the unit back in and note the display. Move the setpoint to just below whatever your room temp is, if there are dashes it indicates a temp problem or the sensor that needs to know the difference. Good for now, let me know. Thanks and Good Luck!

    Hi, Well it sounds like the control board was damaged. Since this is a relatively new model number is this unit under a year old? It has a full 12 month warranty if you have the receipt. Parts are only available thru Haier America, Their customer service number is 1-877-337-3639 Good Luck to you!

Does a thermoelectric wine cooler have a ventilation system?

Absolutely, every wine cooling system has to have a ventilation system that will channel the heat generated in the operation, outside of the unit, including the thermoelectric wine cooler.

Can I install a thermoelectric wine cooler as a built-in cooler?

No. If a thermoelectric wine cooler were built-in, it would not be able to dispel the heat it emits and the fridge would not be able to reach the necessary temperatures.

Why should I buy a thermoelectric wine cooler as opposed to a compressor model?

There are many reasons to purchase a thermoelectric cooler including, but not limited to, being quiet and eco-friendly. Personally, I prefer thermoelectric coolers because they don't vibrate. The vibration of a compressor cooling system can cause the sediments in the wine to be disturbed and affect the flavor/taste of the wine.

My Haier wine cooler (Model BC112G) has stopped working. Prior to it stopping, the pipes in the lower back became caked with ice. Any ideas what might have broken...and how/if it can be fixed?

let the thing totally defrost (24hrs)with the door open then switch it back on as a first step,the ice on the pipes stops the gas from turning from a liquid to a gas...thats how it cools..

Thermoelectric plate does not appear to transfer heat

you should see if theres a DC voltage going to the plate or not. it should noticeably heat up instantly with proper voltage applied. if power is there and it doesnt heat then the thermoelectric device needs to be replaced. also you should be able to measure a resistance of the plate. Should not be shorted or open. it should be a relatively low resistance. like a few ohms. and it may read different depending on which direction you connect the leads.
