Probably somewhere in its history there was an incident of total failure.

SOURCE: Our 18 bottle vinotemp cooler quit cooling, the electrical is ok

Sounds like the cooling unit, i.e. heat sink and controller chip. $35 + $10 shipping from vinotemp, and you install yourself. I'm looking at the same thing (on the 28TEDS), though mine came after having to replace (for $45 and my own installation, incl. soldering) the circuit board. I hope yours doesn't go, too. I've read of others. Pretty poor quality parts they appear to use. I'm trying to find somewhere to buy the controller chip on its own, as the heat sink is simply a hunk of metal. Hopefully that's do-able, as it is with computer cpu's.

How To Test the Compressor Relay The compressor relay's purpose is to start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the refrigerator the relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.

Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.
Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay , overload protector and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor.


Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.


Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
There are two types of relays you may encounter, wire coil and solid state. If the relay has an exposed wound wire coil it can be tested for continuity. Otherwise, the relay is of solid state design and requires specialized equipment for testing.

Why won't my VT60 hold a temperature in the high 50's any longer? It is at 74 and won't let me change it to the 50's.


Make sure all the dust is removed from coils, fan blades and intake vent grill / filter!!! drain the condensation collection pan, and then reset the thermostat and wait 24 hours; before checking the temperature with a digital temp. gauge.

My vt-tc32g will work for a bit and then stop


If it cycles very irraticly then the temp control could be out of calibration and will need to be replaced. There usually is about a 5-10 degree difference between on and off for the temp control and will be worse with no product in the cooler

Try unplugging the temp sensor located on or near the thermostat housing. This will cause the fan to come on, if it works. If the fan does not come on then check for burnt wires near battery and fuse box. You may need to squeeze and manipulate these wires to find burnt area. I have seen coolant temp sensors, faulty fan motors, and burnt fuseible links cause this. When unpugging the CTS the check engine light will come on, don't worry about it.

Vinotemp (VT-60), cools, but doesn't turn off regardless of the temp setting. It will run, cut off for aprox 5 seconds, then continue running. Is thermostat broken? Can it be repaired?


It will either be the thermal resistor or the controller of which the electronic thermostat is a part and yes it can be repaired. It is a reasonably common and cheap fault to repair. If you go to the following link you can get the service manual FOC

http://www.vinotemp.com/Resources/Documents/VT60.pdf

and you can contact a repair company via Vinotemp at the following link
