It is possible that the unit has a switch somewhere which may have been accidentally switched off? On some units you can switch the complete unit off by turning the thermostat counterclockwise.

Aficionado hvt18dfbb is running but NO TEMP CHANGE


There is no compressor on these units. These units use a Peltier cold/hot module where the cold side faces the heat sink and the fan exhausts the heat side. Another fan sends the cool side into the frig. I have the same unit, I am experiencing the same issue. I was looking to change out the Peltier modules (about $7 each) and try that. I did find a replacement Control Board is about $45 and if the Peltier change doesn't work this may be my next step.

The unit is completely dead. no lights and no fan. Both fuses on the board are good.


If it is dead, and doing nothing at all, have you checked to make sure its not a power failure to the unit? Sounds to me that may be a problem if all is dead. You probably checked this first, but make sure. I repair wine coolers, walk-in boxes on a day to day basis, and if you have no lights or fan, and nothing at all is coming on, it is either a power failure coming in or the power cord its self has come loose to the control section. That's all it could be, you have lost power. Check for power at the board if you have power to the outlet. The reason I believe you have no power to the unit is you say the light and the fan are off, and nothing is working. Please check and let me know.

Motor seems to be running, but nothing gets cooled


Hi there

You think the motor is running this can often only be the fan inside, the only way to check if the compressor is running is to pull the unit out listen carefully. You can feel the compressor to see if it is running but BE CAREFUL, if the compressor has a problem it can get to around 180 deg f (80 deg C) you may have to use a glove, or with the unit switched off and unplugged wet your finger then touch the compressor, any moisture will evaporate very quickly if it is hot. There may also be a fan on the condenser, check if this is running.

1. If the compressor is cold it is likely that there is no power going to it from the thermostat this is a very common failure and fairly easy to do if you feel competent.
2. If the compressor feels hot and there is a fan next to it which does not run then it is likely to be the fan.
3. If the compressor is hot and the fan is running try cleaning the condenser grille gently with a soft brush and vacuum cleaner.
4. If 3 above is OK and still nothing then either there is a problem with the gas charge or there is a problem with the compressor, either of these will need your local reputable service guy.

Let me know if I can help further

I plug my 50 bottle cabnet in and nothing happens, I had a power surg at m y house and I beleave that's when it started. Can't say for sure because I don't check on it all the time


It is quite possible an internal fuse on the cooler has open circuite.
Try plugging in a desk lamp into the wall socket. If that works then you will need to get a technician to check your cooler for you

Electricity works, unit doesn't cool.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

This is a 6 or 8 bottle free-standing wine cooler from what I can tell.

I am not having much luck determining if this is a manual defrost type unit or not. Given the inital sales price now of $79.95 I have to assume it is a manual defrost type.

There are a few things that can cause your problem.

1. PTC relay and KliXon thermal overload assy on the compressor.

2. Run capacitor

3. Temp control

You said the fan does not run so I cab not rule out the temp control.

I can not even find a parts break down of the unit.

With no fan running the very first suspect is the temp control but you can at least listen for a CLICK when you cycle it from off to any other position. If you hear a click I would start looking at compressor start / run parts.

If you have access to your units compressor note the manufacturer, hp if stated (1/8hp etc) and Model number.

Then call or visit your local appliance parts supply store with that information in hand. The will have a PTC relay / KilXon thermal overload AND run capacitor that will fit your unit. I am pretty sure that will get you going again UNLESS you have a broken wire somewhere.

The replacement parts are going to run about 50% of the cost to replace the whole thing.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Fridge not getting cold tempture on high number 7 what should we do to get it runing


5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.
