SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: U-Line 15WC Wine Cooler Problem

I just had the same problem. Also, I was getting a burning smell. The coil on the unit was blanketed with dust and dog hair. First, I cleaned it all out and tried it. It really didn't do much and I still had the burning smell. I then opened the back and recognized that the fan was not working. Turned out to be really dirty. Cleaned it and no it is working fine.

The problem is likely with one of the two fans. A new fan is available from Danby (1-800-263-2629). My noisy fan is the condensor fan located at the bottom rear of the device. After removing the cooler from under the cabinet, the source of the noise was obvious. You will need to tell them whether it is the upper fan or lower fan. Leave the cooler upright for a few hours before you plug it in so that you do not damage the condenser. Price for the fan from Danby is $20.15 including shipping.

SOURCE: Making clicking sound motor gets hot but not cooling

Your PTC relay on the compressor is bad needs to be replaced.

First be sure to unplug cooler. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

It is out of warranty if more than a year old.

I can find no service manual. There is a generic video: http://www.newair.com/kb/repair-cooling-kit-wine-cooler/

My Koolatron Wine Cooler, model WC08 will not turn on. Any ideas what I should check first? I checked the outlet. It is fine.


There has to be an internal breaker that went off or fuse. You may have to remove it from the casing to get to it.

There is hoarfrost in the top of the upper level and water at the bottom. What can we do? Is it better to turn off the appliance and let it de-ice? Did you hear about this problem before? Thank yo


I have had a similar problem with a commercial fridge that uses a fan to move the cold air around. The cooling elements get frozen and so no cold air is distributed by the fan.
It seems to happen when there is a weather change, maybe something to do with humidity?
Try turning it off for a day (put towels down) and then it should be fine.

Wine fridge is not getting cold anymore


Its really hard to determine without proper diagnosis, but are you sure it indeed has a compressor? does it run ? Does it have a circulating fan inside? A lot of the wine coolers I've dealt with were "Peltier" coolers. They use electronics to cool usually only to about 10deg below room temp. They require a load ( in this case wine bottles ) to operate properly. They don't have a cold control like a refrigerator.

I have a Haier Model BD00T0E0200 that is getting power, the compressor is warm to the touch, is clicking occasionally, but does not cool. Any suggestions?


Hi and welcome to Fixya. I am Kelly

First of all unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes and let the compressor cool off. That clicking your hearing is the "KliXon" thermal overload trying to protect the compressor because it is not starting.

Failure of a compressor to start can be caused by several things.

1. A bad PTC Relay / KliXon mounted on the compressor
2. A bad run capacitor
3 The bad news... a LOCKED rotor in the compressor.

There is one other possibility and that is that the power cord plug is not making good contact with the wall outlet terminals. (very rare that this happens)

Just make sure to unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes. Use a fan for cooling the compressor if you can by just pointing it toward rhe area of the compressor. After 30 minutes plug the unit back in and cross your fingers...... If it starts your in luck... If not then your going to need to service the unit.

Again thanks for using Fixya and if you need further assistance just reply here. We get notified of all responses. Kelly

Clicking sound and not cooling


compressor grounded. replace relay or compressor

Does not cool. Compressor Hot


Sounds like the compressor starting relay. This should be available from from most appliance parts retailers that carry refrigeration parts. It is probably a plug-in relay which is easy to replace. PULL THE PLUG UNTIL YOU GET IT! Constant cycling on the thermal protector will damage the unit.
