Actually, when using a freestanding wine cooler the heat designed
to escape from the back and I your case the heat won't have a place to escape
to and eventually will over heat the whole unit. Then the compressor will
attempt to compensate for the heating and may eventually burn itself out.
A build-in wine cooler is designed to be built into exiting
counter and cabinetry. Build in wine cooler includes a front ventilation system
which channels the heat forward from the unit, just like any other wine cooler.
Check the outlet, should be 120v. also is the evaporatir fan coming on. Could be a compressor relay problem. You have to go behind unit to check. remove relay and see if its burnt. You can smell if its burn out
does the 'closet' have any ventilation? if not the unit could have overheated and shut down or , worse, burned up the motor. any 'electric smell to it? under the unit, should be a fan, it that stopped it will not cool. look for lint build up under the unit or around any air vents. How old is the wine cooler? can you get any info from the Wine cooler's mfg web site? www.danby.com/products/wine__beverages -
On winecaptains when I hear this its usually telling me that the thermostat is open. You will need to replace it. You can put the 2 wires together and plug the unit back in to see if this works. If it does replace the thermostat. If this is a 20 series then the control should be a #2767-1 if its a 15 or 75 wc then part #2767-S But if its a 21 then you need somthing else with the electric. Try to unplug the unit and wait 5 min then restart it if its a 21 series
