Before replacing any part, first try manual defrost procedure. Unplug the wine cooler for approx 4 hours non stop.This will defrost all ice manually and this resets the internal defrost board and its assembly parts.Then after 24 hours reconnect the units power cord and turn it on, set it to normal temperature.It will take approx 6 hours get it normal cooling cycle.Then check, if its still building up ice, then it can be faulty defrost thermostat or faulty defrost main board.By pass the thermostat terminals by connecting a jumper wire.Connect two terminals of thermostat together and then see if its still building ice inside.If yes then board needs to be replaced.The thermostat located near the coils.Its a thin, twin wire connector, connected near coils.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

One side of my Eurocave SoWine Cooler does not work.


As you must be aware there are individual fans in both the compartments. Check if the fan is running in the compartment not cooling. If not, check the wires / connection of fan or replace the fan.
If the fan is working than the issue may be with the THERMO ELECTRIC ELEMENT. you'll need to replace it.

I am looking for the cooling fan for a Danby Silhouette DWC512BL-1 wine cooler. A google link took me to your site but I don't see any links to Danby parts.


As I have worked on a few ELECTROLUX wine coolers and they do not have a cooling fan for the inside of the unit are you speaking of the one under and in back of your cooler if so then it is a condenser fan motor it will be 110v and your local appliance store should be able to order one close enough to work in design and rotation of it. Hope this helps.

It just stopt cooling (wgersdorf@yahoo.com)


Hello,

Turn the temperature dial to the lowest temperature setting. Wait 24 hours for the wine cooler to reach the desired temperature. Also, turn the wine cooler off and inspect the fan. If the fan if it's running or not.

Lastly, check the compressor.

These are the areas that could make your wine cooler stop cooling; the temperatue settings (Thermostat), then Fan and the compressor.

Check these three areas and let me have a feed back.

Bye for now.

Vinotemp VT-16TEDS has light on but doesn't cool


First check the grating over the fan in the back. If it is covered with dust, there won't be enough air flow and the unit won't cool. Clean the dust off and see if it cools back down. It may take a long time to cool down if it is full of wine, so I recommend taking the wine out to test if it works.

Wine cooler doesn't cool properly


Few things to check here. If the compressor is not running then the problem may be a bad thermostat or the compressor start device (ptc starter). Most common would be the thermostat on wine coolers. Also need to check if the fan is running. If everything is running then you have a sealed system problem. If the fan is the only thing that is not running that will cause a no cool situation.
