Viking 30WCE663 Freezing everthing, yet displays temp of 59F

Discovered my dog licking bottom of wine cooler last night, when investigated found contents of cooler frozen and several bottles of wine and ale with corks poppped off from freeze expansion. Inside coil plastic covering backside of interior covered with white frost. Yet digital display shows 59F. Cannot find model number anywhere on internet yet unit is Viking. What is the problem and can I get parts. Initial internet search says Viking wine coolers/cellers made by Marvel? and probably the 'cold control system'?

Why does wine freeze?


Check for corrosion on the temp probe. The digital displays use thermistors to determine the temp so if the probe has dust on it it will change the resistance reading and tell the cooler that it is warmer than it is. All you can do is clean the probe, and if that doesn't solve the problem then the control or probe are faulty as they are usually one piece you will have to change it out. If you are mechanically inclined you can change out the temp control with an a19 abc24c remote bulb temp control from Johnson controls and that will last of the rest of your life.

Magic Chef Wine Cooler Model #MCWC50DBT will not hold correct temperature. Temps fluctuate between about 45 to often 70 degrees F. Also, often get an "EEF" error message.


Mr. Lindquist: We are experiencing essentially the same problem. Have tried replacing the temperature control board without change. Would be interested to know if you get a solution.

Are red wines stored on the top or bottom of the Haier BC112G wine cooler? How about white wine? Have lost my owners manual and don't know where to put red wine when the temp is set cooler for white wine


http://www.haieramerica.com/en/asset/archived/BC112G.pdf
is the link to your manual.Typically in a dual temperature zone wine cooler whites are stored in the bottom and reds on top as whites are better a little colder and the cold air will drop to the bottom of the unit.
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.

Vinotemp 2 zone wine cooler flashes "Lo" on numeric display for lower compartment - will not hold temperature requested. Temp in upper compartment will not go below 67 even though it is set for 51. Room...


Not sure, but did you clean the filter in the back? Ours has that, and the temp starts creeping up every few weeks until I clean it. But we've never been able to get it below 58 or so, and in the last year, not below 60. I think that's just the nature of this type of cooling. Our house is also at 80. But, can keep it at 60 with the above cleaning.

Magic Chef Dual temp. wine Cooler #MCWBC77DZC


I suspect the cooler can only actually regulate one of those temperatures and the other one just drags along behind. Perhaps the weather is now warmer and the cooler has to keep the motor on longer to keep cool. The unregulated bottom temperature ends up cooler as a consequence.

Either that or the opposite effect is doing it.

The answer might be to find a 61 degree place in your house to keep the reds.
