Wine cooler seems to accumulate ice and stops working

The wine cooler stops working with LL in the display. If I unplug it it starts leaking water from the back as if accumulated ice was melting. Once it stops leaking it works again when plugged back in. What could be wrong? I keep the temperature in the 50-55 range in both zones.

SOURCE: Wine cooler gets too cold (freezes)

Check your thermostat setting, if the setting is ok then something wrong with your thermostat control.

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.

SOURCE: My Avanti wine cooler, model WC3201D, stopped cooling

same problem, can not fix. Had a authorized service tech who said that you can not add freon to this unit, the only option is to plant flowers in it.

Danby DWC2121BLS dual commpartment wine cooler is cooling normally but after 2 days aprox the temperature increase and beeping and flashing hi


If evaporator starts to freeze up the ice accumulated serves as an insulator and the temps go up. If you turn it off and let ice buildup melt the unit will work fine again until it refreezes.

Check if unit has a device to prevent ice build up. If so, it is not working. If warm moist air is entering the area of evaporator coil, that could also be causing the buildup.

Why is our EuroCave DUO wine cooler model D264 freezing 1/4 inch of ice on back wall inside cooler?


Most cases of ice build up can be traced to seals that leak humid air into the cooler. Check the door seal carefully using a fresh $1 bill. The bill should not pull out easily when the door is closed. If the unit has a self defrost feature it it is not coming on. Ice buildup inside a wine cooler is very rare. The cooler box should not reach 32deg in normal operation. Does the unit seem to run continuously?

Temperature in both upper and lower zones will not go lower than 50F. Cooler has 3 bottles of wine. Is there away to recharge with coolant/clean fans...? Thank you


The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor.

Before cleaning the condenser coils, unplug the refrigerator to avoid a shock hazard.

Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the components of the refrigerator.

My wine cooler is not reaching the set temperature. It stops at around 73 and the display flashed AL. Any ideas?


check to see if compressor cycles, if so you may have a thermistor problem which is intergrated with control, replace if you can find part. make sure to check evaporator, see if ice is forming if so you have a leak,or dry evap. you have a leak. repar.
hope this helps.

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing


Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

Inside rear is icing up on Heir wine cooler


Surprised you don't get an "LL" error code for being too cold. Replace thermostat RF-7350-59 first, motor control next. Service manual out of print.

Ice build-up on GE ZDW24A wine cooler cooling coil


Probably the thermostat is bad , you can bypass it by putting together the two wires from the thermostat and if the unit starts working ,replace the thermostat ;only do this if you havesome knowledge of electrical work and be very carefull.

Water seeping out the bottom of my wine cooler


there should be a drain pan that you will periodically remove. Condensate (water) is a normal byproduct of all refrigeration devices. Also look for a drain fitting that you can run to a waste line.
