There is also a light override ON/OFF button next to the door switch to allow the light to remain on for display setups. Make sure that switch is off. If it is off, then your door switch must be shorted out and should be replaced.

    Make sure the light override (used for display purposes) is off. It is the manual ON / OFF switch in the toe-kick next to the door operated (spring) switch.

    If this does not work, either the switches are wired incorrectly or the contacts have failed in the switch.

    I could not find a switch to turn my light off, so I just unscrewed the little bulb in the ceiling. Not a good idea to leave it on as it actually gives off a bit of heat and fridge will be running overtime to compensate.

If the unit has an internal fan it would be ok to use it as a built in.

SOURCE: Marvel wine refrigerator running,but not cooling

If your unit runs but does not cool, you have a "sealed system" issue. Either you are low on refrigerant which would be evident by frost build-up near the area where the freon first enters the evaporator plate. (lower middle, then travels left) or the compressor has lost the ability to develop the necessary differential pressure. You do not want to run the unit like can **** in contaminants that will harm the compressor if you already haven't. You should contact a servicer to get it repaired. If you are still within the warranty period you should contact the dealer you got it from to initiate service.

SOURCE: Marvel 61wc wine cooler turns on, but doesn't cool

If you can hear the compressor running and there is no cooling happening your unit has either lost it's refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is completly worn out (or both). If you just hear the condenser fan running (air blowing), then maybe the compressor just has bad electricals (starting relay, overoad, run capactor) or it has developed a bad winding and will need to be replaced.

If you know you have lost refrigerant the repair will be quite costly and you should consider replacement. If you feel it is a failure of the small electrical parts for the compressor, repair would be more cost effective.

You can get further trouble-shooting assistance and order parts direct from the factory at 800-223-3900.

You can look up a local servicer on their web-site at
Should you desire to attempt electrical repair yourself, reply to me and I will provide further troubleshooting assistance or you can contact Marvel Customer Service at the number above. Good-Luck, Subdriver

Why does My marvel 61WCM wine fridge turn on but right away off again?

First make sure it is not plugged into an extension cord. Low voltage could cause this type of problem. If you have it plugged directly in ,It is probably the compressor or overload relay on the compressor. You can bypass the thermostat to see if it is the problem, by first unplugging the device, then removing the wires from the thermostat, and jumping them together. Then plug it in If it still acts the same way the problem is in the compressor or overload relay mounted on the compressor. Sometimes the relay can be purchased and replaced or a hard start might work solve your problem.

My marvel wine refrigerator runs loud.. How can I make it quieter

Pull the back panel and vacuum around the fan and condenser area. (Un-plugged... OF COURSE)...

Wipe the fan clean of all dust/dirt.

Buy those SMALL RUBBER carpet cups and put the under the 4 feet... and tape an ordinary sponge at any area that has direct contact with your counter... Thick rubber or felt.

There are actually "heater insulation" pads that can be purchased at your HVAC supplier... (but sponge or foam padding can work).

It is a compressor... you can only get it to be a little more quiet.

Hope this helps

Other than temperature, is there any other reason not to store wines in a regular fridge? I don't mind my wines being slightly cooler and I can always leave them on the counter for 10 minutes bef

Aside from temperature, humidity is a major concern. The low humidity levels can cause the cork to dry/shrink allowing room for both air and other food odors to enter the bottle and tamper with the quality of the wine inside. Wine coolers offer an optimal humidity level of 50-80% needed to keep your wine in good condition.
