Question about Avanti Refrigerators
When turned on my Avanti Wine Chiller (WC1500DSS) cools down and the compressor shuts off when the temperature gets to the lower limit of the set temperature dead band. Then, as normal, the temperature slowly rises, but the compressor does not turn on when the temperature reaches the high limit of the dead band. The fan continues to run but the temperature rises back to room temperature. The compressor never turns back on. Any suggestions of what to fix? So far the following have been replaced without success - Main circuit board - Cabinet temp sensor, thermister (DG8-8) - Condenser fan motor
Do only if you are properly trained on live circuits.. Do at your own risk. Check the compressor's capacitor and the relay. Is the compressor getting juice?

The device works like a refrigerator ..and there for the thermostat is to blame that it do not kick in the compressor once that the temperature exceeds the one that you preset ..So the action to do is to change the thermostat and will work fine ..

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.

Those symptoms you describe indicate a compressor that is "short cycling", if it is indeed starting and running for those 3 minutes. Is the evaporator cold for those three minutes as well? Many times people think its running, then shutting off, when in fact it is only trying to start. Without proper tools you cant test compressor, but it might be worth finding out from a repair service if its the compressor or the compressor starter, the latter of which is much much less expensive.
Assuming the other motors on the cabinet are running, you've narrowed your problem down to 2 things, the compressor itself, or the start device has failed. Without the proper tools you wont be able to test the compressor first. My advice, go to repair clinic . com, see what a starter will cost you, if you can find a repairman to check your compressor for cheaper than what it costs to buy starter, well there you go. Either way, if its the compressor thats bad, you wont want to spend the money to replace, unless you have a built in worth several thousand, or physical constraints of kitchen prevent you from buying new fridge.

Unplug the fridge first.
Then try looking at the capacitor on the main board. If it is gooy or weird in any way - I'd try changing it.
