SOURCE: Coleman 12-volt cooler stoped working/fan burned out

Sound like you have the newer version. These fans can be found at Radio Shack or anywhere computer parts are sold. It doesnt have to be an exact replacement. Just big enough to fit over the Cooling fins. Also make sure it's a 12 volt motor

PTAC stops running after a short time


Sounds like a voltage or amp draw issue. So how about if you only try to run the blower??

My Cuisinart cwc-600 does not cool. It registers 45 degrees but is not cold enough to make white wine palatable. No matter where it is set, it seems to be a room temperature. We live in a small house so...


I have been all through these, and they are not very repair friendly. If it's under 3 years old Call Cuisinart, they will exchange it.

They are solid state cooled using a peltier chip cooler. There are 2 fans in the back cavity, and 1 inside. Remove everything from inside, and set the temp to cooling. Do all 3 fans run? If the inside fan does not run, no cooling. The fans are common 2 wire 12 volt computer fans, and available at computer parts stores that sell PC cases and components. Next is to check the cooler itself. Remove the inside rear cover. There's heatsink under the inside fan. Does it get cold when the fridge is running? If not, the next step you will need to get the back off. The Torx screws are special, but a quick slotting of the screw heads with a dremel or a hacksaw, and a regular screwdriver will remove them. Once off, note the red/black fan wires. Also see if there is a load of dirt in the heat sink. If it's plugged, no cooling. Back to the red/black wires. The fan wires are thin. The peltier cooler is heavier. Set to cool, Check for 12 volts on all 3 pairs of wires. If there's power, the fans run (inside and out) and the inside heat sink does not cool, the peltier chip is bad. It's major surgery to replace the cip, but it can be done, and there are scads of sellers on E-bay selling 60-90 watt peltier coolers that will work. They are standard millimeter square sizes, just match the thickness, 12-15 volts, and wattage (around 60-90).

If you are not getting power on the peltier cooler chip lines, there is a tiny fuse on the lower left of the circuit board. Check it.

These are not servicable from cuisinart. Even the silly screws to change the light bulb are security torx type. Fans are available at computer parts stores. Fuses at electronic supplies. The peltier chip can be had from E-bay. That circuit board is impossible to get. Any other parts are impossible to get to by the way it's built.

Unit set to heat but outside unit fan won't turn on. Outside temp is below freezing. The weird thing is that you unit is putting out heat and not set to emergency heat


If it is a heatpump, the outside unit should not turn on below 35degrees or so. Below that temperature, the unit cannot effeciently exchange heat. When the outside temperature is low, the system automatically switches over to auxillary heat which uses the same heating elements as emergency heat.

Wine cooler displays temperature setting but does not run or cool wine.


It's 1 of 3 things...

A. The fans are not turning. Remove the back, and see if the fans are getting 12 volts, and spinning freely. Remove them and clean off the dust from the heat sink.
B. The Peltier Chip is shot. If the fans run, check for 12 volts on the power connector that's on thelower left of the curcuit board. If there's power, but no cooling, the Peltier is shot. These are available from E-bay for ~$13, but it's a major dissassembly to get it out.
C. If you don't get 12 volts to the fans or the Peltier chip, replace the circuit board.

Wont cool down fans in the back of the unit constantly run


Remove the back.
Remove the fans. See of the heat sink is not plugged up with dust. If so vacuum it out.
Get a dc voltmeter. Fire up the fridge. Set it to cool. With the fans running, check for 12 volts on the connector that's on the lower left of the circuit board. This connector powers the Peltier cooling chip. If you have 12 volts, and no cooling the Peltier cooling chip is bad, ir the second fuse is out. There is a small cylindrical fuse near the lower left corner of the circuit board. Carefully check for voltage across it. If the fuse is good, and the fans running, you will not sense voltage across this fuse. Bad, you will read ~12-16 volts.

If your Peltier Chip is bad, it's usually caused by over heating from a plugged up heat sink or fan stoppage. These chips are available off E-bay for ~$13, but require nearly a total tear down of the fridge to change it. 95% of these cooler chips are single layer, square, and vary in thickness. You should find one that is drop-in should you choose to 'Go for it'. Look for a 60-80 watt unit that is the same or slightly thicker, and the same size square.

Do you go up or down with the numbers to get coolness in temp?? Have misplaced my manuel.


Hi, with the stat set to cool, you will go down with the arrows to make it cooler, and up for warmer. On heat, go up with arrow for warmer and down for cooler.
