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!

Haier Thermoelectric Wine Cooler


This wine cooler hasn't held temperature for months, even though during the winter my living room gets to 58 F at night. I've had it maybe a year.

I took the back off, and 2 of the 3 heat sinks felt cool, which means the thermoelectric pack was just conducting cold out of the cabinet in 2 of 3 cases. The third one felt slightly warm, as it should. I checked that the cool ones had 12 v to them, they did, so they should have been pumping heat out.

I put bowls of ice inside the unit, and when the temperatures got down to the set points, I heard relays click, so I figured the control unit was OK.

I removed one of the TEC modules that was cold on the outside, and taped up the hole with masking tape.

I unplugged the fan from the circuit board and unscrewed that fan assembly from the heat sink.

I then clipped the leads to the TEC unit, cut away the blobs of hot melt glue, and disassembled the cooling module. I took the TEC device and hooked it back up, making sure it had voltage to it. After awhile, both sides just felt slightly warm so I knew it was bad.

Got on line and ordered 4 (to have spares) TEC1-12703 coolers. I have thermal grease. When the parts come, I will re-assemble and should be good to go.

I don't know what blows the TEC devices, they should be very robust. Maybe Haier got a bad bunch of them, I read almost all bad reviews on these wine coolers.

My Haier Wine Cooler HVFM30A the compressor or motor over heated and stop working. Can I replace it?


A new compressor for that unit from Sears parts direct costs $206.
The unit itself is worth around $233 and is no longer in production.

After you pay someone to replace the compressor you'll have spent way more than it is worth.
Your best bet is to get a new wine cooler.

Wine cooler Doesn't work


I had the same issue on a Whynter WC28S SNO 28 Bottle Wine Cooler, it even seems like most of the thermoelectric wine coolers, fridges, and such have the same boards by hanny. For cross refference parts I used NTE because Fry's Electronics had them.
Switching transistors - NTE51
1N 4007 - NTE125
Silicon Dual Power Rectifier - NTE6090

Also I have a venotemp wine cooler that has pretty much the same board, with the same plugs for fans, light, control panal, and cooler fan for $45 shipped at their site under replacement parts. Hope this helps people looking for info on this. Also research Switching Power Supply issues for information.

Chamber wc902 wine cooler which wont set temp


I have the same issue especially when there is a power outage. To reset it, press the preset until "1" appears, then adjust the temperature as low as it will go by repeatedly pressing the temperature "-" button. Usually works.

Does not chill drinks


you wrote that the wine cooler "only cools to 12 degrees minimum" I don't understand the problem?
12 degrees is really cold, in fact its freezing.

Hi LinnieMcAdam,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Where can you find a 10 Watt replacement light bulb for your Haier Wine Cooler?

I usually have success at the hardware store. Start there. Then you can try the store where you bought it or call Haier.
