SOURCE: Wine cooler gets too cold (freezes)

Check your thermostat setting, if the setting is ok then something wrong with your thermostat control.

SOURCE: U-line 15" wine cooler not cooling, but light is on.

If the light is on and no fan or compressor is running then its your thermostat that is bad. Thats the only thing that turns on those parts.

SOURCE: Fans not working

I had the same problem as other bloggers--temp would not decrease and fan did not run. . . as suggested by others, I replaced the 5A heat-shrink wrapped fuse in upper left corner of circuit board (fuse is covered in black heat shrink wrap and is in a U-shape). I unsoldered the two ends of the fuse on the circuit board (be sure you locate the correct two holes) and then replaced it with two parts from Radio Shack--a 5x20mm Inline Fuse Holder rated at 250V AC, 5A (part # 270-1238) and used a 6.3A slow-blow 250V fuse (part # 270-1066). Now the wine Refir works great!

To replace the part take all the screws off the sheet metal covering on the back of the refrigerator. Remove the circuit board from the plastic holder. I left all the wires plugged in and just unsoldered the fuse with the circuit board still connected--but to solder you will need an extra pair of hands to hold the board while you solder.

If you don't have it, get some silver solder while at Radio Shack and a thin, needle-point soldering iron tip. Radio shack has 30W soldering irons for less than $10. You really don't need soldering experience--just a steady hand. Even if you have none of these parts your total outlay at RadioShack is less than $25 for everything.

SOURCE: I am getting an E3 Error message on my temp

Do this...

The e3/e4 problem is the "connectors" for the fans to the middle separator shelf are put in the pathway of condensation. This causes them to get wet and rust. PLEASE NOTE: If you decide to attempt this fix, you take full responsibility for your fridge and the outcome. If you don’t think you can do this…DON’T! Call a licensed electrician. Here is how I resolved my e3 issue: 1) Unplug the fridge
2) Remove all wine and the metal shelves
3) Remove the 2 screws from the middle separator shelf, one on each side on top
4) Remove the 4 screws from the backboard, one in each corner
5) Slide out the middle shelf slowly, on the right hand side towards the front of the shelf there will be 4 connectors you must disconnect before removing the shelf (they are tucked into the shelf). With one hand on the backboard and one on the shelf, slowly take them out together
6) Once you have the backboard and shelf out, you'll see there is a black and white connector, each having a red and black wire on each side
7) These are the fan connectors that are causing the issue. Mine were brown/green and damp (not good for electricity)
8) Using wire cutters, cut as close as possible to the "black" connector on each side to remove it. You will have 4 wires left, 2 from the backboard and two from the shelf (both having a red and black)
9) Take some of the sheath (cover) off of each wire
10) Take the red wire from the backboard and the red wire from the shelf and twist the metal portion together
11) Cover w/ electrical tape!!! Or you will have the same e3/e4 issue
12) Repeat step 10 and 11 for the black wires
13) Move onto the "white" connector and repeat steps 8 - 12
14) Put the backboard and shelf back in the fridge. Be careful not to pull the backboard and shelf apart or your connection may come apart
15) As you slide the shelf in, make sure the wires you disconnected in step 5 are in the "channel" on the side of the shelf or the shelf won't slide properly.
16) Reattached the 4 connectors and then re-attach the backboard and the shelf with the screws
17) Plug the fridge back in
18) Put the metal shelves and wine back in

SOURCE: We have our wine cooler for less than two years.

It is not the compressor. This unit uses a peltier cooling system. It has no compressor. It relies on applying a voltage to two dissimilar metals connected at two junctions and when this is attached to a heat sink, allows for the cooling effect. I know this doesn't help, but I thought I should point this out.

I have a wine enthusiast wine cooler model 272 03 27. Not cooling,compressor kicks on. The fans are running.The temperature never gets below 64.Is it the temp sensor or Control board? Thanks Randy


It sounds like it is in the correct temperature range. You may ned to adjust the temperature to a lower setting.

Why does my Igloo FRW700 wine cooler always cool to 0 Celsius or 32F if you prefer regardless of the temperature setting?


It sounds like your temperature control is not functioning correctly. Most temp controls still have a small mercury switch somewhere in the cooling circuitry. I would hazard a guess that if you can turn the dial to different temp settings and it always goes to freezing at 0C or 32F that your temp switch is either bad or the mercury switch (which tips forward or back depending on the setting to make contact and start the compressor) is stuck somehow so that it always sets to the lowest possible setting for your Wine Cooler. Without actually looking inside and testing circuits, that's my best estimation of your issue. Hope that provides you with a starting point to talk to someone who can help you repair it.

Fridge makes a fairly loud popping noise at intermittent intervals...otherwise works fine and maintains wine temp as set....makes this noise approx 10-15 times a day....unable to determine any set pattern...


What you are hearing is the new refrigerant going through the system. The old Freon 12 did not make that noise but the new stuff does. Nothing to worry about, it is normal. Thank you for using Fix ya and I hope you found this info helpful.

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!
