Convert wine cooler into egg incubator?

Hi someone is giving away a wine cooler with a compressor problem. I am wondering about changing its use to an egg incubator. Anyone out there who has done this/ has an idea of how feasible/ complicated this would be? I have seen people turning fridges into incubators.... it will need a fan (if not already installed) a heating element of some kind, (I can buy a proportional thermostat to link up)... any advice? thanks in advance for any help...

Fridges that go wrong generally warm up on their own so you may not need an element. :>) Worth a try anyway.

If the dishwasher is 10 years or older its not worth investing money tofix it! The new ones are mush more efficient and clean better!

Either way this is a service problem to remedy!
Below I gave you a nation wide service thats very good!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide

I had a similar problem and just solved it.
My cooler was leaking and had trouble keeping the proper temperature.
It was also making a buzzing sound which is what lead me to my solution.
BTW - The liquid that was leaking was condensation, probably because the unit was not holding a constant temperature.

Unplug the unit first - no need to get electrocuted.
These units use peltier cooling- essentially a large heat sink with three fans attached.
Click here for more info regarding peltier cooling.
The peltier unit is not repairable, but the fans are; which was what my problem was.
There are three fans on this unit, one on the inside and two on the outside.
Follow these steps to remove them.

  1. Remove the rear cover. It is held on with ten screws. This exposes the two exterior fans and the peltier heat sink
  2. The heat sink is held on with four screws - remove them and pull the heat sink out. The third fan is on a short wire lead, so be careful when removing the heat sink from the body of the cooler.
  3. The two exterior fans are connected to a control panel, the electrical connection is easy to disconnect.
  4. Once all of the wires have been disconnected, you can remove the fans from the heat sink.
  5. The fans are screwed to a mounting plate, which is screwed to the heat sink
  6. You must remove the mounting plate first to expose the screws that hold the fan to the mounting plate. The fans are typical computer case cooling fans
  7. I only needed one fan, but replaced all three because I didn't want to do this job again.
  8. I purchased my fans from Newark.com the prices were better than what I found at the computer websites. Also, these fans are much better than the original and will hopefully last much longer than the three I got from the old ones.
  9. You need one of these and two of these. The total with shipping was around $30
  10. You will need to splice the old electrical connection sockets onto the new fans using wire crimpers or solder them on.
  11. Attach the components in reverse order and power on the unit.
  12. These fnas may move more air than the originals, because the unit seemed to cool much quicker than I remember.
  13. Total time for repair is about 45 minutes
Hope this helps and Good Luck

I need instructions for a janoel 12 egg incubator please i have lost mine


Hello,

Here are instructions from another website along with various links to download manuals and lead you to other forums talking about egg incubators:

Operating steps:
1. Put the mesh with the rail(big mesh)(fig.1) into the incubator.
2. Put the moveable egg tray (fig.2) on the mesh with rail, please do it within the rail.
3. Put the egg tray grille ( fig.3) into moveable egg tray according to size of egg for incubation.
4. Put the hatching egg into moveable egg tray(fig.5) for incubation, pay attention that after each egg is put into the grille, there should be 5mm clearance at least for convenient turning of hatching egg, inject 100ml water into the base after the hatching egg is put, check once for every two days so that the incubator is not short of water. Every water injection shall not be more than 100ml, take down the date of placing hatching egg so as to well control the hatching time. It's best to place the incubator on 60-100cm for convenient insertion of link rod.
5. When closing the cover(fig.7) , the link rod must insert the shifting slot of moveable egg tray, so that the egg tray can shift normally.( in other words, the cercley thingy coming out of the top with a rod in it has to be attached to the egg tray by putting the rod into the egg turner square hole to make sure that the incubator turns the eggs well)
6. Switch on the power supply after closing the cover, and set temperature according to push-button instruction and incubation technology. If the user has no time to care about the temperature, the temperature can be set at 38'c from the first day of hatching, and it can be set as 37.5 - 37.8C since the following day of hatching.
7. It moves to hatching tray 3 days earlier than incubation period for other poultry
8. It usually takes 3-4 days less than the number of incubation days for egg tray replacement, replace the egg tray once one or two hatching eggs are seen hatched, take all of the hatching eggs off from the incubator firstly, then take the moveable egg tray with mesh with rail out, check the water level, then put the hatching mesh( fig. 10) and egg tray in and put the hatching egg on the egg tray, shown as fig. 11.
9. After closing the cover and switching on the power supply, the hatching situation can be observed.

My Haier Wine Cooler HVFM30A the compressor or motor over heated and stop working. Can I replace it?


A new compressor for that unit from Sears parts direct costs $206.
The unit itself is worth around $233 and is no longer in production.

After you pay someone to replace the compressor you'll have spent way more than it is worth.
Your best bet is to get a new wine cooler.

I just bought a wine cooler not sure where to start to fix it. Fans will not turn on


Hi there.........i take it this is a used / second hand wine cooler......if so you've probably discovered why its been discarded........problem could b due to a faulty compressor unit....the fans are usually wired through the compressor...and run in conjunction with it........if the compressor isnt running then the fans are out .........if the comressor is running then check that there is nothing impeeding the fans rotation.....check for broken or damaged wiring.....check for tampering by someone else....check continuity of wiring through fan coils.........check for faulty starter unit on compressor

Hi, could be faulty thermostat, can you check compressor, is compressor running (working), listen to compressor for clicking sound, unplug it(switched off) for about 20 minutes, replug and let it run (work) for another 20 mins. see if temp. drops, what about temp. inside bottle (wine) cooler, is it 98 or colder, more info. could be valuable. check thermostat, check to see if compressor operates, if cooler temp. 98. remove you products, to another cooler, call mechanic.

Motor very hot; not cooling


If the compressor is hot it is possible that it is short cycling. Make sure the compressor is running and that the condenser fan motor is running if air cooled.
