Question about Vintage Keeper VP500 Wine Cooler

VP500 Cooling unit issues

The Wine Cooler will not maintain a 57 degree temp and hovers between 66-69.

It is less than 2 years old.

The manual suggested reseting the cooler, there does not appear to be a reset button on the unit.

I have put a separate air condition unit in the room to keep the ambient temperature down and that seems to help to keep the unit at between the 66-69 but that is not satisfactory.

Wine cooler too cold

The 2 @ 47 degrees may be low in refrigerant gas. Refrigerators are design to operate with an exact amount of gas. When the gas charge gets slightly low the system will operate colder for a time and when the gas charge loses a couple of ounces the system stops cooling. Another cause may be the thermostat isn't operating properly and or the temperature sensing bulb may be too close to a source of heat.

sounds to me you have a thermistor issue which is basically a thermostat but it is electronic now...should be inside the bin on the side wall somewhere make sure its in contact and clean may need to be replaced

I have a marvel wine cooler that frosts up and also tends to have temperture issues. Bottles on second shelf freeze. Temp adjustments to less cold make it too warm.

you have a restriction in the cooling side sounds like the filter line dryer is clogged up and will need to be replaced. Also the system will have to be recharged by a professional check to see if its in warranty.

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.

Three Temperature zones

Did you read the owners manual? It will be kind of hard to tell you because there are so many different settings for different areas.
