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.

Why does my wine cooler run too cold?

If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.

Wine fridge is not getting cold anymore

Its really hard to determine without proper diagnosis, but are you sure it indeed has a compressor? does it run ? Does it have a circulating fan inside? A lot of the wine coolers I've dealt with were "Peltier" coolers. They use electronics to cool usually only to about 10deg below room temp. They require a load ( in this case wine bottles ) to operate properly. They don't have a cold control like a refrigerator.

My vt60 winw cooler doesnt cool , it will show the degrees you want to set it at then few seconds later it goes back to the room temp. of 76...also makes clicking noise to start compressor then again a...

Sounds like the compressor is frozen - sound you hear is the clixon a special sort of resettable fuse on compressors. When they do not start or overheat, it kills the power - when it cools power is restored until it reheats again and .......................

Use ammeter to confirm this - it will show a much greater than normal current draw.

I have a Haier BC112G. It is not cooling at all. Temp panel works, so I can set the thermostat up or down, but nothing happens and it just goes back to room temp after that.

Our magic chef wine cooler (mcwc50dbt) when temp is set on digital panel at 45-50 it jumps immediately back to 70 degrees constantly

Trying to set thermal stat to cool

Look at the bottom of the T'stat or in the newer ones click menu and follow instructions to preset individual days or on some week and weekend if there is a switch at the bottom set it on the cool selection click the menu button if it has a next buttton then click it until it gets to the degrees and push the <or> button until you get to the temp you want it to be at and then click next until you have all the days programed to the temp you want it to stay at and when your finished push the done button if it has one and it should be programed for the cool side to set the heat set it to heat and do the same as you did on the cool part remember down for cool and up for heat on the degrees you set them on example if you set it 78 for the temp on cool and during the day you want it cooler set it to lower temp say76. if you set it 79 then it won't come back on until the temp is 79. Maybe this will help some programable t'stat are a little more complicated then this

My frigidaire a/c is set 73fhrenheit after running for a time the temp. on the unite drops to 60 degrees by it self what is the problem ?

AC units, no matter if they are big/small, window or big central units. They will only cool the air in the room, or home, to about 15 degrees cooler than the outside air temperature. If you live in Georgia and it is 100?F+ outside, you will be lucky if the unit will reach 80?F even running all day.

Unit will not stay cool. Is it a thermostat, compressor?

Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly
leaking refrigerant.
A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run,
then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat.
If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not
sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping).
If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running
almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.

You are most likely right about the thermostat. the ST 1300 had that problem and it is always the thermostat. this also effects the fuel mileage. i would go ahead and replace it and see if that fixes your problems. Brian
