First off, this is high voltage, do not attempt to repair this if you have not worked with 120 or 240 volts!

It may be the temperature control thermostat or the compressor. You will need a volt meter or a test lamp that is rated for the voltage your wing cooler uses. Check the voltage at the compressor (you might have to open a junction panel or box to gain access). If no voltage, unplug your cooler and check with a low voltage battery powered continuity lamp that the temperature control thermostat is at fault by turning it to the coldest setting. Connect the tester across the thermostat and if it does not light the thermostat is at fault.


I hope this helps you!

Not colling


Check the back to see if the compressor is running or just really hot. If it is not running it could be a thermostat issue, but if it is hot and not running, that means your compressor has problems and will need to be replaced.

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!

Koolspace NUVO wine cooler recharge


do you have a recovery machine and gauges you need to tap both sides to check the high to and it needs to be vaccumed down to remove moisture ,find and fix the leak. leaks arnt verry common un less someone broke a line somehow. if the compressor is running it is more likley it has a restriction or bad valve in compressor, hooking to high and low sides will determine which if is less than 5 years old it could be under warrant still most sealed systems have a longer warranty than the rest of it is the evaperator getting cold at all.

Stuck at 77 degrees!


Hi

Do not assume the problem is related to the compressor or the sealed, hermetic system; these types of problems happen only rarely. Your unit may have dirty condenser coils, a door that doesn't seal tightly, or a defective temperature control.
1) Check the cold control. Be sure it is set to "cold." Normally, the temperature inside the unit should be about 37 degrees Fahrenheit.

2) Listen for the freezer fan inside the freezer. When the freezer fan is running, it means the defrost timer and the cold control in the unit are both set to cool.

3) Listen for the compressor fan, where the compressor is located (typically behind or beneath the refrigerator. When the freezer fan is operating, the compressor fan should also be working (most of the time).

4) If one of the fans is not working or the compressor is off, the unit will offer very little cooling or none at all.

hope you will be helpfull..

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

If your condensor fan is running and the compressor is running then you will need a tech to look at the sealed system for you.

Freezer / Refrigerator not cooling


When the fans are running the compressor should also be running. If the compressor is hot but not running you have a compressor problem. If the compressor is running check for frost on back wall of the freezer compartment which would indicate a defrost system problem. At five years old have you cleaned the condenser where the heat is transferred to the outside air in the room?

Wine cooler doesn't cool properly


Few things to check here. If the compressor is not running then the problem may be a bad thermostat or the compressor start device (ptc starter). Most common would be the thermostat on wine coolers. Also need to check if the fan is running. If everything is running then you have a sealed system problem. If the fan is the only thing that is not running that will cause a no cool situation.
