SOURCE: Noisy Wine Fridge

The problem is likely with one of the two fans. A new fan is available from Danby (1-800-263-2629). My noisy fan is the condensor fan located at the bottom rear of the device. After removing the cooler from under the cabinet, the source of the noise was obvious. You will need to tell them whether it is the upper fan or lower fan. Leave the cooler upright for a few hours before you plug it in so that you do not damage the condenser. Price for the fan from Danby is $20.15 including shipping.

SOURCE: Electricity works, unit doesn't cool.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

This is a 6 or 8 bottle free-standing wine cooler from what I can tell.

I am not having much luck determining if this is a manual defrost type unit or not. Given the inital sales price now of $79.95 I have to assume it is a manual defrost type.

There are a few things that can cause your problem.

1. PTC relay and KliXon thermal overload assy on the compressor.

2. Run capacitor

3. Temp control

You said the fan does not run so I cab not rule out the temp control.

I can not even find a parts break down of the unit.

With no fan running the very first suspect is the temp control but you can at least listen for a CLICK when you cycle it from off to any other position. If you hear a click I would start looking at compressor start / run parts.

If you have access to your units compressor note the manufacturer, hp if stated (1/8hp etc) and Model number.

Then call or visit your local appliance parts supply store with that information in hand. The will have a PTC relay / KilXon thermal overload AND run capacitor that will fit your unit. I am pretty sure that will get you going again UNLESS you have a broken wire somewhere.

The replacement parts are going to run about 50% of the cost to replace the whole thing.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Why is there an occasional rattling sound from the rear?


Good afternoon Bob.

Wine coolers have a lot in common with mini-refrigerators. The cooling for the wine, to proper 'cellar' temperatures is done gently (one hopes) with circulating cool air that should keep the temperature stable, and the dust to a minimum.

The fan you hear is most likely one keeping the refrigerant compressor cooled off. Depending on how your unit is packaged, what you'll likely want to do is
  1. Unplug the unit. No pokey pokey into the guts of things plugged into the wall. Always err on the side of safe. Aside from shock rick, the small fans in fridges can actually cut fingers up pretty good if you let em.
  2. Look to the rear lower section of the unit and find the compressor(s) and associated fans and perhaps cooling coils. Much like with regular fridges, use a brush or a vacuum attachment to clear any dust bunnies or other debris off of the coils, compressors, and fans.
  3. Examine the fans. See if anything may have been sucked up into the blades or spindle - giant cobwebs, bits of thread of carpet fiber. See if the blade will spin freely, and whether it feels loose. If it won't move, or is obstructed, try to clear it and clean off any debris or fiber. If it will not move, the fan may have failed. You don't want to run a fridge this way, as the next thing to go after the cooling fan for the compressor is the compressor. At which point most honest techs will say 'buy a new fridge, I can't replace it for less than the fridge will cost you.
  4. You can also see if there is anything else obviously loose near the compressor or fan. There's a significant power surge needed to start the compressor, and the initial slow cycling may be making things shudder.
Hoping this is useful. Good Luck!

Beeping will not stop on wine cooler - red wine side


Beeping usually indicates that something has gone wrong. Probably not cooling properly. The water coming out would indicate that the unit has defrosted. Turn the unit back on again and see if the red side is cooling properly. Some wine fridges have independent evaporators which allows different cooling temps in different parts of the cabinet.

What is a thermoelectric wine cooling system?


Thermoelectric cooling is best used in small wine coolers. Small fans from inside the cooling fridge evenly dispense cool temperatures throughout the interior of the unit.

Dometic rm 2607 makes a gurgling sound when started in a/c or lpg . no cooling, in fact the inside of fridge heats up.help ? thanks


If your cooling unit is gurgling, then you have air in the system or a bad cooling unit. There is a process known as "burping" that should help repair this. It is a rather lengthy process and will require two people.

1. Access the rear of the refrigerator. Turn off the LP gas to the unit. Remove the LP Gas line and the 12Volt supply. Unplug the fridge.
2. Remove the screws in the rear at the bottom and then remove the screws from the inside.
3. Pull the fridge out and lay it down on it's right side for 8 hours.
4. Flip the fridge on it's top for 8 hours
5. Now the left side, then back to normal.
6. Reinstall the fridge and turn gas back on.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

My Koolspace cooler in my VK250 wine fridge quit cooling


I have the same problem with mine and have tried the same things as you have. I took my unit to a air conditioner service place and they said these units are not worth fixing. It would cost about $150 to add a valve so they refill the gas and then try to find out why it is leaking. I am about to order another one which makes me vary mad. My unit is 1.5 years old.
