I also had one of these CWC 900 units that quit working. The interior temp was 77deg F and the outside was 70 deg F.
The exterior panel was very warm to the touch where the heat exchanger was.
Like a previous person stated, there are two fans. One on the control unit board and then the main cooling fan for the exchanger. In my case, this main cooling fan had quit working - allowing excess heat to build up.
Solution: Unplug the unit! Remove the side panel of the CWC 900. First remove the 8 "finishing" plastic plugs that hide the screws. This was done with a sharp point on an ice pick to pry them out. Then remove the 8 screws with a torx T10 driver. At this point, plug the unit in and lower the temperature setting. In my case the small fan kicked on and the larger one did not. Un plug the unit. If you try and manually turn the fa you will feel resistance. Remove the cooling fan and black housing w/ 4 phillips screws. seperate the wires from the cable ties and then unplug the fan - you may have to remove a small amount of a plastic type glue to unplug the fan. Remove the fan from the plastic housing w/ 2 phillips screws. This is a fan made in China and I was unable to find a replacement on the web. Remove the center sticker on the back with the fan model number. Remove the center black plastic plug with a sharp point. You will now see the end of the shaft and a small split keeper ring. This ring is made of plastic - be gentle. Pry it open and remove it from the shaft (KEEP IT). Once the keeper is removed, you will be able to pull and seperate the motor from the fan blade and expose the shaft. I was not able to remove the small bearing from the motor so I wipe the shaft clean, applied white lithium grease and the re-assembled the unit. Fan spun freely. Put everything back together and the unit should be fixed!
Hoped this helped.

It is normal. The goofy thing about this wine cellar is that once the ambient temperature is above 70 degrees - which is actually a low room temperature - the fan works constantly. You would have to make sure the wine cellar is in an area that stays below 68 degrees (brrrr) for it to shut off sometimes.

The outside rear fan on my wine cellar seized and caused the unit to stop working. I replaced the fan with a close match (12vDC, 0.16amp) and the unit is working again. I also took the time to replace the in-line fuse in the upper left corner of the circuit board, just based on all of the blogs I read about it failing. I did all of this only becasue the unit was past it's warranty (>1year) I think however that the main problem with these wine cellars is that the two fans (one on outside, rear and one inside) are just too weak. They can easily be stalled if the air flow is blocked. Oster should have spent a little more money on a good fan and they might not have all of these dissappointed customers.
